As many of you know, I absolutely love Sundays. Unlike other days of the week, there’s something so simple and wonderful about them. Sundays mark both an ending and a beginning – literally and mindfully. You wake up on a Sunday morning with only one more day of the week ahead of you, yet you also fall asleep at night knowing that tomorrow is a new beginning. Not to mention that Sundays are a great excuse to utilize restaurant’s brunch deals and appreciate everything just a bit more ☺️
This week, while mostly chill without too many outings or extravagant events, has been filled with so many smiles and has re-instilled an inner calm that I hadn’t felt in a while. I feel like I do too many life updates with depressive and sentimental notes, so today, I decided to share one that focuses especially on happy things that did happen this week and even happier things I’m looking forward to next week (only a nights sleep away!!)
7 HAPPY THINGS THAT HAPPENED:
This week was my first as an official middle school graduate…so even though it’s summer vacation, I’m technically a high school freshman now! #classof21, where you at?
I finally started packing for my two month trip abroad in China!!
Went all-out on Thursday with an athleisure mini shopping spree. New Nike merch, anyone?
My laptop started working normally again ahhh
Started bullet-journaling (once again) and it’s working quite productively – minimalism really is better.
Spent a gorgeous, albeit humid, day at the park with one of my closest friends while also getting to know some mutual friends better!
Baked mini pizzas and made homemade noodles with my mom and lil sister. Turns out flour, although not permanent, is a pain if your wardrobe consists of mostly black!
7 HAPPY THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO:
Being a part of my town’s 4th of July Parade + festivities!
Fireworks – need I say more?
Less humid weather after a week of high dewpoints and short tempers…FINALLY.
Traveling to China, somewhere I haven’t been to since I was 4 years old!
Going on a plane for the first time in 10 years (let’s ignore the fact that it’ll be16 hours of nonstop flight…)
Seeing my grandparents and relatives for the first time in 10 years (again, many firsts-in-a-decade next week!)
Taking plenty of pictures + beginning my first ever travel vlog!!
