Stuff I loved in December. Mainly just a chronicle diary of what happened the whole month. Also, this is going to be my last favorites post ever. Ok, not ever, but from now on my favorites post would be infrequent bursts or more sporadic throughout next year. I love doing this throughout the month in a way to practice gratitude, but when it comes to putting it together it becomes really overwhelming because it’s such a giant post. I’m thinking of doing a favorites post next year when a month has really stood out to me, but other than that I don’t think I’ll be doing any consecutively. This series has really helped me get through 2020, and I’m so thankful for it. I’ll do something similar to this, just in smaller doses. 


I’ll keep updating this post weekly as December goes on x 


Current Favorites, December Favorites


#WEEK ONE

x Trying Canva Pro for a month | I love my animated pins so much ! Favorite effect is Stomp

x @Pix_Bun character designs of her Honey series 

x Dancing with your lover in the halls of an abandoned castle playlist | Prelude, reflections 


x Things that made me sad: ; - ; I’m going to lose my health coverage early. It’s supposed to expire February but with Covid they had to get rid of the department that processes the renewal of my coverage and hire a third party to do it. And now I don’t know what’s gonna happen . _ .  I think it’s a scam. And I think I almost fell for it. This made me cry just thinking about losing my support system of my pcp, behavioral counselor, psyschiatrist, gynecologist, and wonderful nurses ; - ;
