April Wrap-Up: The One With The Exam

We're almost halfway through the year! I'm so excited for May because A) it's almost winter and I love love love winter and B) it's my birthday month. I've also managed to do some things in April I was dreading (but now am proud of) so I'm glad to put it behind me.

April was a big month for me. I changed my Instagram theme again (again again again again), I booked my learner's license, I went to a 21st party, and I took my very first Matric exam. Partly because of those things, I was stressed. Hugely stressed. I was anxious, I was depressed, and I did not feel great in any way. Of course, now that I've done those things, I'm relieved, but the anxiety and depression are still there. It hasn't been a good month for mental health. If anything, this month has taught me to rely on and trust God more than ever before, and I've also been making an effort to spend significantly more reading the Bible.

Book Review: Viper - by Bex Hogan

I hardly posted at all this month, and for that I blame Instagram (and my mental health). I've been focusing a lot on my Instagram account and that's taken up most of my time. 

Plans for May

- Exam #2! This one will be for Language Arts, and I'm not too worried about it because it's my strongest subject. 

- My birthday! On the 10th of May I'll turn 19. 

- Learner's license! I finally got round to booking a date (the 16th) and I'm feeling confident and prepared. After I get my learner's, I have two years to get my driver's. Pressure's off peeps. 

- Read more! I don't think it was a slump, per say, but I definitely read "halfheartedly" this month. It was probably the stress of my exam and my anxiety and depression and all-round exhaustion, so I guess I have an excuse. But still. I want to read more books in May.

What did you do in April? What are your plans for May?
