August Recap

7:18 PM

IT'S THE END OF AUGUST (and it has been for like seven days. I'm so sorry). How has time passed so quickly? Gosh. School's been started back up for two weeks (but not rly since I pre-wrote this post and right now it's been three) and everyone's struggling to get back into the rhythm of regular old busy life. I've moved back to my college apartment, got everything pretty much organized again, etc. 

I guess the hard things for me are getting my creative flow back on for my design classes and just... finding the energy to pay attention and interact with people and walk around all the time. SO HARD. 

This month was a pretty successful month if I say so myself. I always struggle to read during the school year, and this year's no different, but I feel like I'm getting better at not stressing out to the point of doing no reading.

In All Place (Stripling Warrior #3) by Misty Moncur ⭐⭐⭐ (for both)
I read these books ages ago when they were babies on Wattpad and I just got a hankering to read them again. It was great revisiting the huge cast again (confusing for my brain though. I can't do 100 names. not possible) and reading about all the guys crushing on the main character XD

Children of Icarus by Caighlan Smith ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was one of my favorites of the month! The world, the plot, etc. was original in a really refreshing way. Angel stories? Exotic animals? Unknown history? Yes, please. (A full review to come)

Elfhame by Anthea Sharp ⭐⭐⭐
Not gonna lie, I was super psyched about this book because of so many reasons. 1) It's by Anthea Sharp and she's one of my favorite self-published authors 2) It's about elves 3) It's a Beauty and the Beast retelling 4) Look at that cover. It was great! My main complaint is that it wasn't fleshed out enough.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is one of my all-time favorite contemporaries, so I read it in August for a re-readathon. I actually connected to the characters and the story EVEN MORE than I did the first time. It was like wrapping myself in a fuzzy blanket.

As you can see... a LOT of kpop. Mainly because my car doesn't have a radio so I can't keep up with all the songs playing now. :(

>> I PASSED THE BIOLOGY CLEP EXAM WHAT WHAT. That, my friends, is the equivalent of 8 college credit hours. In other words, a huge weight off my chest.

>> I have Illustration and Studio 3 (this one's graphic design) classes both with the same teacher who I'm not too fond of. My creativity is having a hard time getting back into a good groove.

>> My living room? It looks different now! I don't know if you remember the apartment tour video I took last school year but we changed it around (we also switched bedrooms which was more than a little confusing at first)

>> My best friend made me go to a youth church evening meet up thing with lots of people around my age being loud and social and... it was definitely something else. I mean it wasn't horrible. I did go to church in an all black outfit with combat boots however (I didn't have time to change ;)). SHE MADE ME PLAY PING PONG which I have never played and should never play again according to how horrible I am at it.

note: I know I've been so bad at keeping up with posting lately. And actually if we're being honest, since I started college I haven't been the most consistent. Which is sad, because I really love it and I was doing so well at organizing things and reviewing etc. before college. 

Oh welp, for now I'll definitely keep up with monthly recaps and try to do the occasional book review. Thanks for staying with me. :) <3
