May is officially here, it's absolutely terrifying that we're almost half way through the year already. April was a busy month, as it meant the end of second year. I am no longer 'in a state of near-constant meltdown' as I handed in my final essay on Monday! I am free of work! Although I will miss living in Manchester over summer. When I go back in September I am resolute to find a job (preferably in a book shop, I can dream) so I can stay in the city and not have to slave at Ikea back home every weekend.

Anyway, that was a tangent. May means summer, if the weather behaves itself. Summer means freedom to do what I want, which means working a lot of hours in the blue box and saving for a(nother) tattoo. I almost know what I want and where I want it, it's going to cost a pretty penny though.

I also really want these trousers, but I'm trying to curb my spending:
I've seen them pop up on a few blogs lately and I love them. My sister has the navy with black spots version and after initially hating them, they've grown on me.

I'll keep this short and sweet.

All through April I was listening to:
Childish Gambino
Brand New
The RENT Soundtrack
Coheed and Cambria

And reading:
Wicked - The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire
Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh

I hope your months were lovely, apart from the hideous weather. Fingers crossed May is better!

Thanks for reading x


  1. I love Trainspotting, I had to read it this year for one of my modules and I may even talk about it in the exam if I'm feeling super keen!Can't believe you're finished already, I'm not done until 22 June! Jealous (: x

  2. It's so good so far! I mean I adore the film, but the book is amazing! Ha yeah, summer term at MMU is exam period and I don't have any so I'm all done! xx
