monthly recap july

July was over so quick! Where did the month go?!

  • I started a writing project that basically took over my life. I had to slightly change my Camp NaNoWriMo project, and it was for the best because now I am fucking in love with the world.
  • For July 4th, I hung out with friends, and it was fucking awesomeeeee. I hadn’t seen them in a while, so we just hung out all day and walked around. (My highlight was definitely hearing a couple argue during the fireworks.)
  • I bought art supplies for the new project I’ll be doing — lettering! I’m pretty excited. I have an awesome new sketchbook and pens and stuff (that came in today!)
  • I started a bullet journal to keep organize and to get my priorities in order. It’s interesting to see what I keep putting off. *cross my fingers I continue with it*
  • I don’t buy books that often (because I have no money), but I decided that every month, I will buy just one at a bookstore. (This may screw me over because I see book events in my future, but I shall try!)

  1. Very busy month :D and super awesome book haul!!!

    I see that you’re also waiting on Jackaby By William Ritter- so am I!!! It sounds so exciting and I honestly have high expectations for it :D

  2. WINTERSPELL!! I’m so sad they keep declining me on Edelweiss – I already gave up :( I did get a copy from The cure for dreaming and I can’t wait. It sounds so good and I loved In the shadow of blackbirds. I really want to get a copy from Mistborn & The archived. Congrats on achieving all your July goals and have an awesome August :D

    You had a solid month of reading and blogging, great job! Ugh, July was nuts over here and I’m glad that we’re starting fresh, with August!

  5. Amaris says:

    Yes, you must read Open Road Summer! I’m interested to hear what you think. My August will be much more eventful than July, so YES, I’m excited for August!

  6. Yay for reaching 15K, Cee! =D

    You should’ve posted a snippet of the argument, too. Humph. =P

    Hell yeah, lettering!

    Dying to read The Archived and The Unbound. I shall soon. Eeep. And Mistborn.
