Monthly Highlight : March 2021

 



This month I picked the book theme for title picture because I read a lot more than usual. If you follow this blog since the early time of monthly highlight series, I made a goal for myself to read at least one book a month, so I would have 12 books by the end of the year. I mostly read non-fiction books around that time, but this year I decided to read more fictions. I used to be scared of reading non-fiction books because I felt overwhelmed to picture the description (since English is not my first language). Not all fictions are not difficult, some are easy to understand and I do love them. So this year, I want to challenge myself to read fantasy, started from middle-grade (because my brain convinced me that it’s easier to understand). That’s why I started reading a popular middle-grade series this month, and I love it!

1. March Bullet Journal Theme : The World I Want to See with You

For the month of March, I chose a theme from one of my favorite songs titled Kimi to Mitai Sekai or The World I Want to See with You.

5. New Skincare : PURITO Centella Buffet Serum

I got 2 pimples around my period, so I need something calming to put on my skin. Since I haven’t used this serum for awhile because I tried to empty other products, I decided to repurchase this one. I know you are kinda bored when I talk about this serum, but this serum gives calming effect and has calming scent. And it helped drying out the pimples quickly.

 

6. Reading List

This month I read 3 types of book which are audiobook, e-book, and translated physical book. This is the month with most books I ever finished (since I’m a slow reader) with 1 non-fiction, 1 sci-fi, and 1 fantasy middle grade series consist of 5 books I picked (and finished 4 of them). There is nothing in DNF list which I’m super proud of! Good job!

The books :

a. Non-fiction : COSMOS | Carl Sagan 

b. Sci-fi : READY PLAYER ONE | Ernest Cline 

c. Fantasy / middle grade series : Keeper of The Lost Cities series – Shannon Messenger

I read five books from this series and finished the first 4 which are Keeper of The Lost Cities, Exile, Everblaze, and Neverseen by the end of March. When I’m writing this blog post, I’m currently on book 6 which is Nightfall. I never thought that I will stay reading a series until 6 books in less than 2 months. So far, this is my most favorite fantasy series which don’t make me tired to read (maybe because it’s middle-grade, I can easily digest the story and I caught myself sleeping later than usual because I was curious of what happens next).

 

7. What Happened

Releasing The Rainmeow Sticker Set

I released another sticker set on my online shop at shopee. The sticker set was used for my April bullet journal which was inspired by a song by Johnny’s WEST titled Rainbow Chaser.

 

Seeing moon – jupiter – mercury triangle in the eastern sky

In the eastern sky, around 4-5 AM I saw this triangle formed by Jupiter, Mercury and the Moon. I had expected to see them because an astronomy account which my friend retweeted were mentioning about it, so I didn’t want to miss it.

 

Johnny’s WEST 7th album : rainboW released

My favorite group released their 7th album this year titled rainboW which consists of many gorgeous songs. My favorite songs are Big Dipper (because it’s about stars, space, and love), Rainbow Chaser, Paradise (all english lyrics song), Harujanakutemo, and Omoi, Fuwari.

 

Filming May bullet journal setup

Since I got some ideas, I decided to execute some of them including May bullet journal setup filming which then saved me from the sudden changes happened during April. You can watch my May bullet journal setup video which has been published on my channel : May 2021 Bullet Journal Setup | Simple Colorful Circles

 

Stopped filming monthly vlog

I decided to stop filming monthly vlog because I need to focus my videos on around bullet journaling and creative stuff, beside I have to free myself from another pressure to film any activities I do during the day. Sometimes filming something daily makes me not enjoying the activities and I end up missing something important from it. I also don’t see the vlog stuff is something which sparks joy for me during filming, editing and finishing. So for now, I will not post any monthly vlog until I find something which pushes me doing that again.
