July Wrapup

It was another wonderful month, and I’m sad to see it go. Monthly wrap-ups are a bit long. Introductions are me talking about my month, personally. Feel free to skip to whatever emboldened section you’re interested in!

My Month

  • My birthday was July 15th. They took me on a sunset cruise, which was gorgeous, and I watched people dive off a cliff. Good times. To satiate your curiosity (if any) as to what my age might possibly be, the answer is… I am an ageless immortal.
  • I went to Jamaica (where my family is from) for the first time in four years. The air is much easier to breathe, and the heat less suffocating than in New York. I learned to be grateful for constant Wi-Fi, unrestricted water, and my water being automatically heated. I also enjoyed pretty houses, stuffed myself full of food the majority of my days, read on a veranda, and napped (because sleep is important). I think I relaxed for the first time in two solid years. You think I’m exaggerating, but I’m as serious as a heart attack.
  • I asked Dad about BEA. He does the yearly budget, and if I want these things, I have to ask before January. We don’t do last minute. As long as work and school doesn’t get in the way grade-wise, it should be fine. Cross your fingers and say your prayers because this means giveaways for you from my now unnecessary BEA savings.
  • Snail mail to Dee, giveaways won.
  • I did a lot of posts for you guys for August. A LOTTTTTT. And I’m starting work for September, so holler if you want to see something on the blog.

    AWK THANK YOU FOR LINKING TO MY POST. ❤ And happy belated birthday! *sprinkles birthday cake crumbs over your head* Ooh, I hope you can get to BEA (next year is it?) because that would be aaaamazing. Australia doesn't even HAVE that kind of thing, gah, but BEA sounds so so amazing. Glad you had a wonderful month!!
