July Summary

July has been a pretty good month for me. We've had a couple days of nice weather, which will probably make up our entire summer, and had some good days and nights out with friends and family. Having a break from uni work has been really good for me.

How has your July been?

My Favourite Season

Why is summer my favourite season?

Is it the long days and light evenings? 

Is it the knowledge that at least one household is having a fun-filled barbecue with family, despite the fact that it's most likely drizzling?

Or is it the fact that everything is just brighter, more colourful, happier in the summer (despite the miserable-at-best British weather)?

I love summer. I love the sun and hours of natural light. I love that all the music makes you want to be sipping cocktails on a beach somewhere. And I love that everyone just seems happier in the summer - more relaxed. As a student, summer is my chance to unwind and reflect on the year gone by. One of my favourite things to do is sit outside, close my eyes, and just breathe. Feel the cool breeze rustling the trees and the heat gently warming my skin. I love being outside in the summer - it's my happy place.

What's your favourite season and why?

A Change of Pace...

Okay, so I've been writing my blog for about six months now, which is really exciting. But so far I've only been writing about things that I consider 'blog-worthy' topics... so the kinda cliche, generalised posts that don't really say anything about me or my life. But now that my blog is up and running, I'd like to start going posts that are a lot more personal, a lot more relevant to my life, posts that are just slightly more interesting for me to do.

That being said, I'm not gonna take down the posts that are already up because I did really enjoy doing them, I just think I'm ready to start writing about more personal things, as I said earlier.

So yeah, that's what's gonna be happening on the blog over the next few weeks... this might mess with my posting schedule and stuff because I might not be able to think of things that I wanna write about, but I'm really excited about this. I think it's just gonna make my blog feel so much more personal.
