JUNE WRAP-UP, JULY CATCH UP, 1500+ FOLLOWERS(?!?!?), BREAKS & LOTS OF NOTHING.

I’m writing this and listening to my neighbours’ very-loud-radio at the same time (there’s lots of ABBA and now i want to watch Mama Mia 2 again).

In the Classic Lu Fashion, i disappeared from the internet for over a month (again). i lost all motivation to do anything (again). So i didn’t (again).

oh well, what’s new?

I LOVE HIM

how have you all been?

JUNE

books:

I READ ONE NEW BOOK IN JUNE (DARIUS) AND REREAD ARI AND DANTE. THAT’S IT.

Obviously I loved everything about them both. Darius The Great Is Not Okay low-key made 2020 not such a Hot Mess in terms of the books i was reading. why were they all (mostly) so bad??

Urghsh.

(also how great-timing w/ Ari and Dante b/c literally a month later the sequel was announced!! the SEQUEL!! WAS!! ANNOUNCED!!!1MSFJGJS im so excited i can’t even breathe i just hope its amazing and Legs is ok and ARI AND DANTE LIVE FOREVER AND ARE HAPPY AND THROW SHOES TOGETHER AND DON’T GET HURT AGAIN.)

I was also ‘reading’ Anger is A Gift and i was liking it butttt it was V heavy to read with the current climate. I really liked what i read but it was so hard to read with everything going on so i feel like it’s gonna take me a while to get through it because its a v sad book.

life:

  • honestly i can’t remember what i did in June.
  • i think i just mainly went to work and sunbathed and did nothing.
  • a lot of nothing.
  • i did a lot of research about BLM and continued to educate myself (which you should do too, even though it’s not trending like it was before)
  • i carried on with yoga??? like whooa look at me go
  • my skin was really bad in June and it was really getting to me tbh. nothing was making it better apart from Sudocrem. it’s getting better now.
  • I carried on doing workouts which made me feel a bit better too. (tho who am i, voluntarily working out????)

life:

  • why is Mama Mia 2 so good? i thought i’d hate it but i loved all the young-donna stuff?
  • I started Chloe Ting’s 25 Day Slim Thigh Challenge and i didn’t find some of the videos that hard?? think the 2 week AB and Lower AB videos were hard but the other ones not so much????
  • not that i really need to do any leg exercises now that I’m back at work. my legs are BURNING. I work at a restaurant and I’m walking (practically running) all day and GOSH MY LEGS ARE EXHAUSTED.
  • I AM EXHAUSTED.
  • Talking about work tho. i chopped into my thumb while chopping apples at work and had to go to a&e. its kind of healing? just slowly. there was so much blood.
  • don’t worry, i won’t show you photos.
  • STILL DOING YOGA!! NEARLY AT 100 DAYS!!

  1. your neighbor listening to ABBA needs to be protected, ok? (i’ll admit though i hate whenever any of my neighbors play loud music, but it’s even worse when all they listen to is variations of the chainsmokers).

    i’ll be looking forward to your thoughts on all these books! i recently read loveless and i really liked it. i had conflicting opinions about some of the side characters, but overall, the book was pretty good and i feel like the aro-ace rep was super important & well done.

    congrats on 1500 followers! hope your legs are doing fine, hahah. hope you have a great month!
