I haven't really sat down to write a blog post in what feels like forever, so bear with me. I can't believe we're already nearing half of 2021 and it's been a bittersweet year so far. I don't really see how another half of 2021 could magically be better. I haven't left my house for months and I may actually spend an entire 2021 without going outside, really.

Anyway, May was a bit of a rollercoaster both in real life and in my blogging life, and I recently have been feeling so... off. So separated from this blogging world. 

It feels like today I am gonna spend a huge chunk of my time here and then the next day I am nowhere to be found and it's like an endless cycle at the moment. I just want to state for the record as well that I love blogging with all of my heart and miss it dearly. 

I am gonna try so hard not to feel burned out. Please send me all the good vibes and prayers. 

Five Things In May 2021

1. Vaccinated!

Perhaps this is one of the biggest highlights of May. Yes, this girl is vaccinated! Getting the vaccine actually didn't really hurt at all because knowing me, I am scared of jabs. It happened in a blink of an eye and I am so grateful that the process was such a breeze.

I had no side effects other than fatigue right after the jab and mild muscle soreness after a couple of days. I feel like I have done my part to help end the pandemic and to protect my family, friends and my community. I would make the same decision again in a heartbeat.

2. A little gateway


A. VERY. MUCH. NEEDED. GATEWAY.

I want to believe I went to like a private island or something but it's just an undiscovered island with little to no creature. It's so calming. I would love to be in the middle of the ocean by myself surrounded by the water and breathtaking views. 

3. May's bullet journal flip through

Notes: I was being super generous and doubled up the amount of money I spent last month as compared to the month before, which was April. As far as my habits go, I did a pretty good job not forgetting my sunscreen! I know it should be a routine at this point but sometimes people forget, y'know what I mean?

Notes: Yup, my sleeping pattern is once again messed up. Please pray for this homegirl.

4. McDonald's iced latte

As a non-coffee drinker and never being a fan of coffee, I have resisted trying anything coffee especially from places like McDonald's. Aside from their french fries, I don't have much faith in them. 

I don't know what's gotten into me but I went ahead and ordered a small iced latte with normal sugar. It was incredibly sweet and to be honest, I don't really like the after-taste. So it was just mediocre to me and I don't know how some girls on my Instagram be drinking this every single day. No hate but to each their own.

5. Dreamy sunset

I am so grateful to be living in a place that has the beautiful sunset view, ever. And being the sunset chaser myself, I can't not take thousands of pictures. Bless my phone's gallery.

How's your May? What are you grateful for last month?
