The Positivity Wave is a weekly Friday update that’s all about positivity, as you guessed it, and was created by Meggy @ Chocolate ‘N’ Waffles. I’m not participating every week, but with all the things that happened to me this week (I can’t believe it!) I felt like it was highly worthy of it!
🌊 Now that the confinement is more or less over in France (some people are still working from home, but restaurants are slowly reopening), I finally got to spend some times with some of my friends and I MISSED IT SO MUCH, and it felt so good.
🌊 Also, my favourite bar has reopened, and I spend my Saturday night there (outside!) with some of my friends last week, and it was amazing. I missed this so much. And yes, we are beeing careful. But we’re also making plans for the summer, and it’s good to finally be doing something out there! (That being said, I shoot dirty looks at every single customer who enters the bookstore not wearing a face mask, but that’s a whole other story).
🌊 While I don’t really have the energy to read physical books these days, I have managed to listen to some amazing audiobooks, and I’m really enjoying this! Among them: Clap When You Land as well as With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo, The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta, and King and the Dragonflies by Kacen Callender.
🌊 I moved out of my parents’ house, and moved in to a new flat on Monday! I have four flatmates, and I am so excited about this new chapter of my life that’s beginning. (Adulting much?)
🌊 Apparently, I got a pay raise? Still can’t wrap my mind around this one.
🌊 And tonight, I spent some time with my new flatmates. When I came back from work, two of them were in the kitchen, and instead of retreating to my room and lie down (which was tempting, I have to admit) I cooked and watched TV with them. And once again, it feels good to have people to hang out with!
That being said, I also miss my family, and I’m not just saying that because I know they sometimes miss my blog posts ❤ I’m still living not far from their house, and I can drop by pretty much whenever. And now it makes the time we spend together all the more valuable. So yes, it seems like a new chapter of my life is beginning, and I’m really excited about it!
