The first six months of the year are now GONE! Whilst it wasn’t an overall bad month, there were certainly some tough points, and I’m not sure how the rest of the year is going to end up honestly.
In terms of COVID-19, well… I’m from Victoria, Australia, and we’re not doing too well down here. Cases are rising again, people aren’t doing the right thing in terms of social distancing, and – I honestly can’t even believe I am typing this again – people have even begun to panic buy again. It’s actual madness.
Just as things seemed to go back to a “new normal”, others had to ruin it and think that the pandemic was over and now heavy restrictions are most likely going to be put in place again, and I am not looking forward to that. I am crossing all my fingers in hopes that my work doesn’t get closed this time around because my mental health will NOT cope with that!
Work has always been my only way of getting out of the house and seeing human beings, and if that gets taken away, I honestly don’t know what I am going to do with myself – OR how I am going to pay my bills. It’s scary to think about. Anyway, let’s get onto June’s recap! ✨
TIDBITS FROM THE MONTH:
♡ I got sent some products (you can see a few of them here) from one of my favourite baking companies – Dollar Sweets – for me to use in future recipe posts, which I am really excited about. I’ve been in brainstorming stage for a while now because I want them to be perfect, but they should be on the blog soon! 🙊
♡ If you’ve been keeping up with my hair adventures throughout 2020, you may know that in February I went back to bleach blonde – which I was pre-2015 – but I bleached a few too many times close together to get it ready for a party, and HEAPS of it ended up falling out. Every time I washed it, more would fall out, and it was terrifying. So I decided to let it grow out, but my dark regrowth looked awful next to my bleached hair, so I dyed my hair dark brown so you won’t be able to tell as much.
Guess what? Even MORE of my hair fell out when I dyed it brown! So, I cut it to shoulder length and now wear a hat at work (because there are some SUPER short bits at the back that stick up 😳), and beanies everywhere else. I’m mostly upset because I’m loving the dark brown hair and want to keep it this colour, but I really need to let my hair grow out before it all falls out!
♡ I went on Discord pretty much every night this month, which included many 2-3am bed times 😅 (Surprisingly, despite all my late nights, I only had six seizures this month!) My friends and I finished our Star Wars movie marathon on Discord this month, but I honestly think I’m going to re-watch the sequels again by myself VERY soon, as I’ve seen the others multiple times – including the non-Skywalker ones – but have only seen the sequels twice each, despite loving them, no matter what anyone thinks.
♡ One of the best things that happened this month is the great weight loss that I’ve achieved! I mentioned in some posts earlier this year how my last medication made me gain 10kg+ (I mean, I was at a size I have never been ANYWHERE NEAR before, and I was NOT happy about it). It also did some horrible things to my mental health – and then it ultimately stopped working, so my neurologist was more than happy to take me off it, and gave me a new one that is also an appetite suppressant. Not only have I lost the weight I gained, but I’ve lost even more than I thought I would, and I’m now at a weight that I haven’t been at for a VERY long time!Read More »
