July Highlights


I’m one of those people who ends up working the summer away, and July was a prime example of that. I had many things on my to do list, so I basically took a mini-hiatus from this blog in order to sort out my life. Since I took care of so many things this month, however, I should be able to have more free time in the future!

July Accomplishments

  • Moved into a new apartment. If you read my previous post, you know I’ve recently moved into a new place. Apartment searching, signing a lease, packing, picking up my keys, moving…it’s been a lot of work. I’m finally settling in and I love my new apartment so far!
  • Earned a promotion. I started working at a sandwich shop this summer, and I have already been asked to become a shift leader! I appreciated the promotion as my last job gave me all the extra responsibilities without a new title or a pay raise (needless to say my ‘summer’ job is now my main job).
  • Finally took care of ‘adult’ things. I put off so many things this year, but I finally made it to the dentist, got my cat her vaccinations, and registered my car.
  • Got a new pair of glasses! This goes along with my last statement, but I ordered a new pair of glasses and some more contacts! Last year, I ended up procrastinating on contacts to the point where I had to wear my glasses 24/7. I’m glad I didn’t wait that long this year! I was also happy to get a new pair of glasses, especially since I  scratched up my old pair to the point that I could barely see out of them. I also had my old pair of glasses for the past three years, so it has been nice to wear a new style.


July Favorites

  • Thor: Ragnorak
    • I’ve found that this is more of an unpopular opinion, but I love the Thor movies! Since this was on Netflix (plus I’ve watched the other two Thor’s within the past couple of months), I decided to rewatch this one! It was my  first time watching it post-Infinity War so it was rough.
  • Friends
    • I’m on the last season of Friends! This Rachel-Joey-Ross love triangle thing is kind of messing me up, but it’s fine.
  • Wonder Woman Warbringer
    • I’m not sure if I love this young teenage Wonder Woman, but this book has been pretty enjoyable to read so far.
  • Her Universe
    • I love geeky clothing, and I rediscovered this shopping website this month (although I wish I had looked into it earlier). I try not to buy clothes often (I hate spending money and don’t want extra things I’m not going to use laying around), but I purchased a few things from the site (which I’ll probably share somewhere online when I receive it).
  • Songs I’ve Been Listening to: 

What I’m Looking Forward to in August

  • Retro Cup! While I’m not sure if I’m going to continue playing quidditch next year, I at least have this fantasy tournament (where everyone signs up individually and 4-5 captains draft teams for that tournament only) to look forward to! Especially since this is the only time I get to travel this summer, I’m excited!
  • Focusing more on blogging. I now have reliable Internet and more time to blog! I’m going to make a list of blog goals to motivate me to work hard on my blog. One things for sure…I would really like to get a domain for my blog in the near future!
  • Making videos. I’ve wanted to make YouTube videos for a while now, and this time I am seriously going to work at accomplishing this. I have more space in my apartment to film so it should be easier for me.

What were your July highlights? What are you looking forward to in August?

  1. I’m one of those people who is working the summer away, too! I saw a meme that said something like I’m sick of people going on vacation, get a job and be miserable like the rest of us. That’s honestly how I feel lol.

    I’ve never bought anything from Her Universe, but their clothing always looks so amazing ❤
