Goodbye, July! As soon as August hits, I always feel like summer is on its way out. July is the core of summer for me, the essence of what I look forward to as the break between school years. Here's what I got up to this past month: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han… Continue reading JULY 2019 | Wrap-Up
*looks at calendar* *backs away slowly* How is it already July?!?! HALF WAY through 2019?!?! Every summer when the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag rolls around I find it hard to believe that the mid-way point is already here... time is a sneaky one! Anyways, enough of my existential ramblings. I was luckily nominated for… Continue reading Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag | 2019
What's this? A blog post? For the first time in weeks?! July was a ridiculously busy, hectic month for me, meaning that I was too occupied with other things to have any free time to blog. While I won't be back to my full blogging self yet (still so much to get done!) I thought it would… Continue reading JULY 2018 | Wrap-Up
July was a blur of hot days, air-conditioned office spaces, lakeside reading, and time spent with friends and family... not a bad way to spend the bulk of summer! Here's what I was up to this past month: In July I read a total of 9 books: Hard Times by Charles Dickens North and South by Elizabeth… Continue reading JULY 2017 | Wrap-Up
I did it. I actually, finally, miraculously did it. I reached my Camp NaNoWriMo goal of 25,000 words!! To be honest, I was doubtful that I would be able to reach this goal at all by the end of July due to my busy internship schedule, a family camping trip, and the BookTubeAThon in the latter… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo 2016 | Wrap-Up
Oh, July. I always have mixed feelings about the seventh month (in fact, you can read all about them here). June is filled with the excitement of a new summer and August is brimming with the anticipation of a new school year, but July-- it's just kind of there. But this year I had such a busy… Continue reading JULY 2016 | Wrap-Up
It's that time of year again: Camp NaNoWriMo is finally here! My experience with Camp NaNoWriMo last July was pretty much a dud (I only managed to write a few thousand words) but this year I feel much more prepared and ready to write, write, WRITE. What is Camp NaNoWriMo, you ask? Camp NaNo is… Continue reading Let’s Go: Camp NaNoWriMo!
The summer is already half over- can you believe it? Each year as July comes to a close, I start to get a wee bit restless. Excitement about the upcoming school year begins to bubble inside of me, and this year is definitely no exception. Still, I keep reminding myself that it is nevertheless summer, and… Continue reading July 2015 Wrap-Up
What a strange month this was! It's the summer before I go to college for the first time, so I'm sort of stuck in that awkward transition between being a high school and college student. July has been filled with a lot of hanging out with family, relaxing, and getting super excited for college! Here… Continue reading July Favorites: Fall Out Boy, Pugs on Twitter, and My Love Affair with Guacamole
Camp NaNoWriMo has begun, and I am so excited!! I've packed my backpack, my hiking gear, and my s'more supplies, so I am ready to set off. Of course, Camp NaNoWriMo isn't really an outdoor camping adventure. Rather, it's a month of writing as much as possible- ideally to reach the goal of 50,000 words. Camp NaNoWriMo… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo is HERE!
