Omg I can’t believe I forgot about getting this blog post up at 10AM EST, but hey I’m only 40 minutes late. Thank goodness I draft these blog posts early. Yesterday was May Day at Bryn Mawr College (yes, May Day arrived on April 30 this year). When I got back home, I watched Criminal Minds whilst editing photos and a vlog. The blog post with the photos will go up on Wednesday, and you can view the vlog here! (And you can view 2015’s May Day vlog here.) I won’t say too much else about it; you’ll have to wait for the blog post!

Movies & TV Shows
The Great British Baking Show | Finished all the episodes on Netflix! (3 seasons)
The Walking Dead | Finished all the episodes on Netflix! (6 seasons)
Girlboss | Didn’t know this was a thing, but I saw Michelle tweet about it and then finished watching the entire season that night.
Switched at Birth | Randomly clicked on this whilst browsing Netflix and got hooked as soon as I found out it had themes of Deaf culture, but now there’s too much drama so I’m not sure whether I’ll continue.
Khalid and Kodie Shane performed at my college! Of course I was super psyched for Khalid, especially since I had just found his music earlier this month (the first song I heard was “Cold Blooded,” not “Location,” surprisingly enough). I hadn’t heard of Kodie Shane until she performed at my college, but omg she was so cool and I love her energy.

I always try to keep this section of the blog post as minimal as possible (non-existent if possible), but as you can see, I’m prepping for summer.
ASOS weekday crop bikini set (was going to buy this but then it sold out *cry*) (but now it’s not sold out anymore ughh) (now it is again) (this is so stressful!!)
Speedo women’s pro LT superpro swimsuit (still need to buy this eventually)
Grocery shopping and coming back with luxury items like yoghurt, taco cheese, and Reese’s ice cream.
Julia documenting my life on Snapchat.
Kat gave me her extra baseball cap so I didn’t need to buy one.
Buying a bag of fried chicken.
Steph finally bought the Daniel Wellington Classic Black, so now we have matching watches, band and all!
End of the semester!!! I mean, I guess not yet officially until mid-May, but done with classes for the semester!
Caught in the act by Georgina. Lokal Hotel and Barnett Fair Hair launch party. Getting distracted by dogs during photoshoots. Making unicorn cupcakes at The Blog Connect 2017 conference hosted by PHLbloggers at Saxbys HQ. A few snapshots from the conference by Tim Becker. One of those days you wake up and feel good. One of those nights you go to Chinatown for bubble tea. A celebratory dinner. Socialising.
I’m finally done with classes! Just got two weeks of exams to get through. Afterwards, I’ll be traveling up the west coast and hitting up San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland with Kat and Julia for almost two weeks. I’ll probably use that time to switch off and the blog will be quieter, but you can keep up with me on Instagram and Snapchat! Whilst I won’t have the regularly programmed blog posts going up during those two weeks, I will be checking in to post short round-ups on the blog, like what I did for Italy and Germany.
