I finished my official exams yesterday, and got to spend the rest of the day with my best friend. It’s a day we’ve been talking and dreaming about for literally 9 months. So with that being said, high school is officially over; and it feels incredible and surreal and scary all at once. But I’ve got a long summer ahead, so there’s that. I’ve got everything planned, and I’m so excited to just start spending my days reading and watching series without a care in the world, if only for a couple of months before uni starts and shit gets real.
It was scorching hot yesterday; so we had lunch, headed over to Starbucks where I grabbed a much needed Mango Iced Tea which was incredibly good and very refreshing.
Then we spent the rest of the afternoon walking down the beach.
It was a great way to spend the day after an exhausting week of exams.
Now, my plans for the summer mainly consist of lots and lots of reading. But most importantly, we have a group buddy read for our Goodreads group’s July’s Book of the Month, Cinder. So that’s something I’ll be working on with the lovely group moderators. I’ve got a whole list of ARCs that I should be reading and reviewing. And then actual books like ACOWAR, Crooked Kingdom and way too many other important books that I should read ASAP. And some planned buddy reads for July…
I’m currently watching (more like re-watching) Orphan Black so I can catch up with the latest season which aired a week ago. There’s a list of other shows that I’m planning to watch, too. I’m considering the Norwegian series Skam, and some Turkish series that my friends have been going crazy about for ages.
I’m currently radiating positivity and optimism. And dammit, I love this serene exams-free feeling I’m having.
So how’s your summer vacation going? What are your plans for the upcoming weeks/months? Let me know!
