and hello, July. I’m probably sounding like a broken record, but how fast is this year passing by? We’re halfway through, and I’m starting to panic that I’m not doing enough with my time. Seriously, it’s crazy how much of a homebody I am. If it wasn’t for my dog, I would hardly be outside. I also have too many indoor hobbies, which I enjoyed a lot last month. I just love hanging around in my own space.
Most of the time last month, I was busy getting my new apartment into shape, and I used pretty much every free minute to try and make it perfect. I’m not one of these people who won’t have lamps on the ceiling three months in. I want everything done in the blink of an eye, which of course didn’t work out and was a bit frustrating. But I’m pretty much done, and it makes me so happy. Still waiting on a wall clock to be delivered, and that’s it. I’m also really feeling it now, especially all my plants. My living room looks a bit like a jungle, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Unfortunately, moving, furnishing and decorating the place, going on vacation, and my little online shopping addiction does not make my bank account like me very much. It’s pretty mad at me, and I’m trying my hardest to stop spending money on things I don’t really need. After all, I need to pay my bills, and I also want to go on vacation again in a few months, and I tend to go a bit nuts with the shopping when I’m in vacation mode. So, I eat lots of pasta – which is totally not the worst thing in the world – and try to stay away from Amazon.
Overall, I would say that June wasn’t super interesting. I decorated, bought lots of stuff, started planning my next vacation, spent time with my parents, went back to the office on some days, got back into reading lovely books, and finally found time to work on my scrapbooks. Sometimes, nothing makes me happier than going down memory lane and putting all my souvenirs into an album. I wish I could do scrapbooking for a living.
So my life hasn’t been exciting, but I feel like I’m happier. I’m trying to do more of what I love, and if that doesn’t involve seeing people or leaving the house, so be it. Everybody is back to having Covid anyway. But I do plan on having more social interactions this month. Suppose it’s not too hot cause I am definitely not a fan of summer. But every little hermit crab has to leave her shell eventually.
You don’t need to be busy. You don’t need to justify your existence in terms of productivity. Rest is an essential part of survival. An essential part of us. – Matt Haig, The Comfort Book
