I need time to slow down.
Today is August 31, and I’m foregoing my usual First Impression Friday post in order to write down my thoughts on August.
For the record, here’s the Post Breakdown for August:
Top 5 Tuesdays:
Book Tag Thursdays:
First Impression Fridays:
Counting this particular post, I’ve written a total of 15 posts for the month of August. That’s far and away from the whopping 29 posts I managed during the month of May, but better than the five posts from April. I’m still trying to find a good balance in my life in order to keep up with my blogging. (Seriously. It’s like a small side job. If I want to put in the effort, I really need to put the time into it.)
I went back and read my Hello, August post in preparation for writing this one, and realized that I didn’t keep my promise with only two of the things. I didn’t write five blog posts a week and I didn’t read any books for fun during the month of August. (And this is a book blog. For shame.)
I did, however, read several books for my thesis. I received my own copy of my published short story (and then sent them out to my grandma and to my aunt, and gave one to Steven). I started working out. A whole lot of things have happened in the past few weeks, and I’m hoping I’m starting on a new path entirely.
Is life difficult? Yes. It’s not always going to be sun and roses, but I’m struggling through it all the same. I’m in such a better place compared to where I was last year at this time. I’ve even thought about going back and deleting/editing old posts to portray things more positively, but then realized that there was no point. You’re gonna get the real me. No more apologies.
So as August comes to a close and school starts back and summer fades behind us, I wish you the best of luck with whatever you choose to tackle this fall.
And as always, keep reading.
