plans for the summer: tbr, watchlist and life goals

So, after 14 months of studying, we have finally been allowed summer vacations… of 16 days. way to go. 😐

anyway, I’m planning to make the most out of these 16 days (14 now) before grade 11th starts. and here’s my elaborate plan which I have a little possibility of following but like to make anyway :))

tbr

  • it’s been so much time since I’ve actually read a physical book,, I miss the feeling 😭
  • summer just gets me into that feeling where all I want to do is binge read young adult contemporary books, idk why
  • I opened up my goodreads list and it didn’t even take me 2 minutes to decide which books i wanted to read because i had been eyeing these titles since forever, and what better time than now?

Loveless by Alice Oseman and Perfect On Paper by Sofie Gonzales

  • I also want to try rereading The Poppy War because the last time a reading slump attacked me when i was halfway through The Dragon Republic and i desperately want to finish the series!! but with everything else going on, it’s just a distant wish hehe.

watch-list

  • ahhh. welcome to the most unrealistic section of this post.
  • so technically i have a five-foot long list of everything that i have been told to watch- here are the top k-dramas of the list: Hometown Cha Cha Cha, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, Extraordinary You, Business Proposal, Twenty Five Twenty One, Goblin, King: The Eternal Monarch.
  • And here’s what I’m currently watching: Descendants Of the Sun, Hwarang, Crash Landing On You, Itaewon Class and Hotel Del Luna.
  • how am i watching all of those shows together? I don’t know myself. All i know is that I started them at some point in march and haven’t reached till the end :/
  • and to add to this, i also have to watch the office and heartstopper. *sighs*
  • so i’m gonna narrow it down to 3 things- hotel del luna (with my IU-obssesed sister 😢), heartstopper and itaewon class.

life plans

  • it’s been a hot minute since I went somewhere and didn’t feel guilty about it, so these past 2 days have been refreshing!!
    i went out to see a couple of movies with my parents and friends, and i also had ice-cream after such a long time! ahh such a blessing 😭
  • we are going to a resort that’s in the hills, which i’m VERY excited for because the last time I went for vacation with my family was 3 years ago i’m not even joking. And there are also tentative plans to go to a water-park but we’ll see
  • for the last 3 months, working out wasn’t my first priority- i just stretched once in a while and that was it. however, i wanted to get back on track now that i had the time and i decided to take up the splits challenge for 2 weeks!
    but i’m an stiff piece of wood and i have no guarantee that i’ll get my splits in two weeks but i’m just doing it to increase my flexibility so it’s alright-
  • in general though, i wanna complete the Spider-man story-line on PS4 and also try out other games but the only ones we have rn are GTAV, WWE, Minecraft, Ratchet&Clank, FIFA2020 and a racing one soo i don’t really have a lot of choices :/
  • my bffs’ exams finish on 18th and we’re planning to meet up and do something fun, so that’s there too. And!! i was thinking to do a watch party or something with my friends but none of us has done that before so it’s all a mess.
  • before grade 11th starts, i really wanna go shopping for clothes as well as stationary supplies! i’ve been using the same bag since 4 years and i don’t regret it but it’s high time i should switch to a new one hehe. And as for the clothes- don’t ask 😐
  • another thing- i want to decorate my room, but again, it’s kind of tentative so i’m not sure i’ll get that done.

That’s it for today, ig. we all know i won’t be able to complete everything that i mentioned in this post but we also know that it won’t stop me from trying! i wanna do an update post in a month or so too~

what are your plans for the summer? what are you watching rn? have read loveless or perfect on paper? tell me all!!

  2. ha no it’s not just you, its a universal truth that summer is YA contemporary time (i mean- just look at me binging them like nobody’s business)
    alsoo all the best for 11th grade!! i’m in grade 10 this year and while i too currently have summer vacations,, i totally feel the stress.
    JANHAVI WHAT. you haven’t read perfect on paper?? its PERFECTION i tell you and it would be a CRIME to keep putting it off ok??
    loveless is on my tbr, along with all the other oseman books except for the heartstopper comics.
    ahhh HEARTSTOPPER HEARTSTOPPER have you read the comics?? because let me tell you, the show is somehow EVEN cuter!

    1. yep summer = contemporary binge mode activated haha. And omg best luck for 10th grade!! Ik the pressure can be a lot but remember to take some time out or else you’ll be burnt out (speaking with experience lmao).
      UM I’M SORRY i will definitely read it!! yep yep, wouldn’t want to commit any crimes hehe.
      lol same about oseman’s books- i’ve already read solitaire but i want to read every single book of hers. YESS i’ve been following the heartstopper comics since 2 years and i’m so damn excited to watch the show !!! it’s so unfair though- i’ve been the longest heartstopper fan in our friend group yet i’m the only one who hasn’t watched it yet πŸ˜₯

  5. Hope you have a good summer vacation! Summertime is also my favorite time to read contemporary YA. I recently finished watching Hometown Cha Cha Cha and LOVED IT. Currently watching Business Proposal. I think it’s definitely worth all the hype. Still need to watch all the other dramas on your list. Too many dramas, too little time!!

    1. Ahhh all the dramas are overwhelming me at this point haha- but hometown cha cha cha seems so cute that i can’t wait to finally get into it!! Omg business proposal!! heard loads of good things about it, I only wish I could have known about it earlier when i was busy wasting my time. And exactly- way too many dramas, way too little time !!
      I hope you enjoy your month ahead too!

  7. there are SO many dramas and i’ve officially seen 5πŸ˜…πŸ˜… i just finished flower of evil which is currently my all-time fave! and I’m about to start CLOY and eventually all the others on your list as well because the drama to-watch list is growing like my tbr😭 ooh, my brother has the spider man ps4 game, i was wondering if the storyline is any good! hope you have an amazing summerπŸ’œ

    1. ahh that is still more than me lol 😭 ooh never heard of flower to evil but i will check it out because you said it’s your fave!! omg i was also watching CLOY with my sister but we’ve put it on a pause because we’re both in different places rn. but cloy is great even with all the cliches and unrealistic parts, there’s something i adore about it!! the way my watchlist is growing makes me worry for my eyes aksfhgkl 😭😭
      i just finished the spider-man storyline for the second time and i can confirm it’s the best hehe. 😌 there are familiar villains but also new ones and the story moves ahead in a great manner, plus the difficulty increases in the every mission towards the last so it’s definitely worth a play!! i hope your summer is a great one too! <33

  9. Happy Summer! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ I hope you have a wonderful time and get to enjoy all your plans with everyone! πŸ’• Also, good luck with the splits challenge… I didn’t even realise that was a thing which tells you how much I look into exercise so I may try to do it myself. It would be cool to say I did the splits at least once! Then I can go back to no exercise πŸ˜‚ joking… kind of πŸ˜‚
    As an Alice Oseman fan, I really liked Loveless! The characters are always so special in Oseman’s books. I still have to watch the heartstopper show as well! I’ve heard amazing things though!
    Again, this blog is SoOo beautiful!! 😍😍

    And Heartstopper! I’m reading them right now, so I can watch the show which I’m so excited for.
    Do finish The Poppy War! They’re long but so good!
    Best of luck for 11th grade!

  11. Wandered over here from your previous blog and I am in love with your new blogs aesthetic and the overall vibe. It feels so cozy and it’s just so pretty! πŸ’œ I’m at that point where I’m not actively watching anything but somehow I’m part way through several different shows and wondering how the hell I got here? I’m rewatching the C Drama Falling Into Your Smile with two of my blogging friends, whom i shoved it at and it’s been a delight to rewatch it with them. We need to continue our rewatch though. Then I have the anime’s Your Lie In April and Tower of God to finish, I part started both but just stopped. Same with the K Drama Extraordinary You, I’m so close to finishing it but I need to actually just sit down and finish it – which is apparently difficult for me xD

    My plans for the summer are undecided for the most part. I’m hoping to get some reading done and work on blog posts as well as play Genshin Impact, generally try and relax and make memories ideally. I also want to redo my room so bad but I have no idea when that will happen. Here’s hoping we’re both able to redo our rooms! Enjoy your summer lovely πŸ’œ

    1. Aww thank you, cozy is exactly the vibe I wanted my blog to give off so tysm!! <33 Asfgdjkl I'm not ACTIVELY watching anything either but i have like 10-15 shows that i'm in the middle of and it was so baffling when i realized that haha. i've heard SO MUCH of falling into your smile- i really need to watch it. 😭 Same with Tower of God and Extraordinary You, though i'm gonna start extraordinary you next and god knows when i'll start all the anime recommendations i've got haha.
      Ahh it's been so much time since I've relaxed and done nothing but read and blog- that's what I've been doing these past days. And ahh Genshin Impact- I downloaded it a while ago but it never started because of some issues and even though I looked at the FAQs and stuff- it never really worked out which is a shame because i was so excited for it :(( I've been away from home so redoing my room hasn't been possible but I hope you get to do it!! Hope you have the best summer too <33

  12. ahhh crash landing on you and descendants of the sun were one of my first kdramas that had actors other than lee minhoπŸ˜‚ but I justtt love both of them, they are so goood!!
    And omg hometwon cha cha cha will make you cryy😭
    Its Okay to Not Be Okay is just amazing, like so so amazing, you wont get over it for weeks!🀍
    Business Proposal was all my heart when it released and it was soo cute and funny, its just perfect definition of a romcom🀧
    Twenty Five Twenty One, uhm, again, will make you cry FOR SURE😭😭 but reallyyy worth watching
    ahh King Eternal Monarch, even if you don’t like the storyline much (because its about parallel universe and it can be confusing if you dont watch it attentively), you HAVE to get in love with Lee Min-hoπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
