It feels like just yesterday that we started blogging over here at Wordy and Whimsical which makes this announcement feel all the more sudden, but I don’t think I can honestly put this off any longer, so: I’m going on hiatus. I can feel you rolling your eyes already if you’ve been following me for long enough because I must admit I do have a tendency to go away on breaks every so often when life gets overwhelming, but there’s just so much happening around me right now that I really, truly feel I need this.
I’ll get back to talking more about what “this” entails in a bit, but I must first clarify that this is solely me and me alone that’s taking a break from all things blogging. Vera will be up to her usual awesomeness here, and *cue drumroll* Clare will be back soon too! So it’s not like you’ll miss me or anything.
Anyhoo, on to all the things I want to say before I go missing for a good month or two! First of all, and this isn’t the most important but it’s a milestone, sort of, and hence: I just turned 25! This 14th, actually. I’ve always been excited about turning 25 for reasons which I’m not very sure of, despite which I’m so looking forward to seeing all life has in store for me. I must admit that I used to think 25 was a pretty reasonable age to expect to have one’s sh*t together…and I most definitely do not have my sh*t together.
However, I do have more exciting news (which might not come as a surprise to you if you’ve been here since our times at The Regal Critiques): I’m getting married in less than a month, in sha Allah! EEEK. And this is hugely why I’m finding it difficult to find time for reading, blogging etc. lately. I’m usually a mess when it comes to things like this because the STRESS omg. So you can imagine how I’m coping now that it’s my wedding and I’m expected to make decisions and plan stuff and what not, on top of ensuring that I look all bride-y and keep a smile plastered on my faceat all times and such. It’s a pain, but it’s a pain I must endure…so yeaaaaah. I still am excited about the wedding itself, though. All the good vibes, please!
Now that that’s out of the way: I recently watched Aladdin and the hype is very much deserved, y’all! Watch it if you haven’t already, I’m pretty, pretty sure you’d love it too! The cast, the soundtrack, it was all just perfect, and it truly was a wonderful experience. And speaking of things I watched and loved- and this one is for the fellow k-drama fans- you simply must watch Angel’s Last Mission: Love and Search: WWW. They’re both honestly so original and I love everything about them. I’ve been wanting to talk about both in a kdrama round-up post for the 2nd quarter of 2019 but since that’s seeming highly unlikely now, this will have to do. But for real, trust me, you need to give them a chance!
I haven’t really been reading all that much lately so I’ll take this as a chance to give a shoutout to my favorite books so far this year: The Bride Test, Ayesha at Last and my most, most favourite- Love From A to Z! (Click on the titles to go to my reviews in case you need further persuasion.)
Well, that’s it, I guess. To sum up, I just turned 25 and am marrying soon, and since I’m awful at dealing with all the things life keeps throwing at me, I’m going on hiatus. Catch you on the flip side! xx
