June Things

Hi, friends! I haven’t had a super talk-y post in a while (aside from the Cooking Confessions post). One of my favorite thing about blogging is rambling, and giving my opinions on various topics (that you may have no interest 😉 ). So, June is officially over! The end of the month makes me kind of sad because I am one step closer to school, but it also means I am one step closer to graduation. Definitely bittersweet.

This month I took my cap & gown photos! Seeing myself in the gown was crazy. I feel like I keep talking about graduation, but I don’t think I will ever stop (sorry). I also wrote one of my college essays, it is still in its rudimentary stage, but it’s coming along.

These are some of the sample photos (“look and order”), which explains the watermarks. 😉

Aside from school stuff, I have been having a really chill summer. Reading. Watching movies. Baking. Volunteering at a local clinic. Spending time with my family. Sorry for the terse sentences, they add more emphasis, lol.

I have some exciting recipes to share with you guys, so stay tuned. I know my blogging has been pretty inconsistent, but it will become more scheduled soon.

I feel like there have been so many great movies out this summer Finding Dory, Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Shallows  (which includes one of my favorite actresses, Blake Lively), Tarzan. Have you seen baby Dory? My heart melted when I saw a picture of her.

I have been reading Anna Karenina, it is very long. I haven’t really gotten into it, so I don’t have a real opinion, but once it progresses I will let you know what I think.

Where is 2016 going? It is going by SO fast!

How was your June?

  1. My June has been pretty chill as well. 🙂 I have been watching dramas and helping out baby sitting every once and a while. I also got a job, but I don’t know how I feel about it yet. 🙂 YOU LOOK GORGEOUS IN YOUR SENIOR PICS!!!


  2. Yes, I agree with Alyse, YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL IN THE PICTURES!!! I’m really glad you’re having a relaxing summer -the calm after the storm right? Also, I can’t believe you’re working on college essays already -that’s gonna be me next year! :O
    On another note, how many colleges are you applying to, do you know yet?


    1. Thank you so much, Anne! You are too sweet. 🙂 Yes, last summer I was preparing for my ACTs and SATs, so it’s nice to just chill (finally). I’m thinking about applying to seven schools two safe schools, three medium-reach schools, and two high-reach schools! Needless to say, I have a lot of essay writing coming my way! 😉


  3. Lovely pics, Hira! And I bought Anna Karenina myself a few years ago and never got more than 50 pages into it… I should probably pick that up again one of these days! Let me know if you end up enjoying it! 🙂
