As some of you may remember, I wrote an October Favorites blog, and I have not written another since then. I enjoyed writing the last one, so I thought I would kick off May by sharing some of the highlights from last month!
My favorite blog in April was Girls Actually. Not only because they share great articles that women can relate to, but also because I got the unique opportunity to work with them and write a guest blog! I chose to write about dating in college, so if you’d like to see my take on that topic you can check it out here!
In October I said my favorite music was Pentatonix, and I actually went to their concert last night with my mom and it was a blast! They will always be one of my favorites, but last month, I was obsessed with an artist called Halsey. She has a really great voice and I love her style of music. My favorite song of hers right now is Castle.
My boyfriend got me into the CW show The Flash, and I’ve been surprised by how much I like it! It’s a supernatural/super hero type of show, and normally I go for more drama/comedy, but I have been enjoying it a lot! It has enough humor to make me happy, and the plotlines are really well thought out and fun to watch unravel. I’d definitely recommend it even if you normally prefer different genres.
My favorite podcast for a few months now has been Dear Sugar Radio, which is hosted by Cheryl Strayed (author of the book Wild) and another author named Steve Almond. If you enjoy hearing relationship advice from two very smart, insightful and funny people, then you will love this podcast as much as I do! They read letters from listeners and have guests every episode who they call in to talk about the letters and give an extra perspective.
My favorite memory of April was definitely visiting some of my college friends. I took two days off from work to drive up to see them, and spent the weekend in my old college town! It was just the boost I needed to get back to the everyday grind of work. I love my job, but everyone needs a break and some extra relaxation every once in a while!
I hope you enjoyed this blog! Let me know in the comments if I should do these every month, and also let me know some of your “favorites” from April!
