Can you believe it's already the end of July? That means I've only got a month left of my summer vacation before classes start up again. I'm not too sure how I feel about that to be honest. I have enjoyed being a student for the past four years but I'm ready to wrap up the experience. I want to move on to bigger and better things in my life. Thankfully I've only got this coming semester left and then I'm done.
Anyways, you might remember that I made a July Goals post in the beginning of the month. Since tomorrow is the first day of August I thought today would be a great time to go over the list and what I've done this past month.
My July goals were...
Make an art piece or two for the shop.
Hoop a few times a week.
Look at all the stuff I crossed off the list! It's been a good month. I haven't written as much in my novel as I would have liked, but I did get through an important scene which feels good. I also dyed my hair. It's not as blonde as I would have liked, but after two attempts I called it quits. It's now a nice strawberry blonde with white-blonde roots from spending a lot of time in the sun.
I did get lucky in finding a part time job! I will be working front end at Hannaford (grocery store) which is not really that exciting, but it's a job so I'm happy about it. I will also be working with a good friend of mien so have that to look forward to.
I also did attempt a watercolour but I'm really bad at it. I know it takes practice, but I've been so busy that I haven't had much time to work on it. Or motivation. On the same note I also didn't make art pieces for the shop, just jewelry. Booo. I really need to get on this.
I did meditate a bit more, usually before bed. It helps clear out my mind and I sleep better. I really need to make a more stable habit of it though.
Hooping didn't happen as much as I would have liked. A good portion of July was super-hot though so hooping was not something I wanted to be doing. Me and Sue did go out a couple times though on a cool night and get our hoop on, so it wasn't a complete loss.
Aaaaand I certainly did list some more items in my thrift shop! You should all go check it out if you're into cool clothes for good prices. And when I say "good" I mean really cheap. It's all pretty good quality stuff as well.
In retrospect, great month! I didn't cross off everything but I got most of it! And I did lots of other cool things such as go to Warped Tour, see The Devil's Carnival (with pre-show Boston exploring!), get pet rats, start an art journal, and practice my tarot reading.
Check back for my August goal list which should be up in a day or two.
How was everyone else's July? I'd love to know.
