July & August 2022: Summer Monthly Wrap-Up

Hold onto your flannel blankets and grab those pumpkin-spiced lattes… Because cozy season is officially upon us! πŸ‚β˜•οΈπŸ§£πŸ§‘βœ¨

Are you a big fan of fall? I sure am. And I’m very glad it’s finally here! Despite working in schools, summertime is not my favorite time of the year (though I have to admit, I do enjoy the vacation 😎). That most coveted spot is reserved solely for autumn. The beautiful colors, perfect weather for sweaters, pumpkin-flavored everything – what’s a basic girl like me supposed to do? 😍

The fall does bring with it the start of a new school year… And now that I work full-time in the education sector, a whole lot of stress. My role has changed this year – and brought with it some new responsibilities – so I am acutely feeling the ramp-up of work right now. But (I hope) I’m up to the challenge! πŸ’ͺ (Check in with me in a few weeks to be certain… πŸ™ˆ)

June 2022: Monthly Wrap-Up

Another day, another monthly wrap-up! I hope you all had a lovely June – and will have an even better July! β˜€οΈ

For me, June was the last month of the school year. I somehow managed to finish it off without too much stress – I genuinely don’t know how I did it! – and now it’s officially summer and I am PUMPED. 😎

My parents are visiting, which has been really nice since they live quite far away, and it’s been a number of years since the last time they stayed with me. It’s been fun doing lots of touristy things, sharing a few of my favourite parts of my city, and the life I’ve created here with them. ❀️

April & May 2022: Monthly Wrap-Up

How is it already June?!!?!

This year feels like it has been going by so fast!!! Since I work in education, the past couple of months have been a little hectic as we get everything in order for the end of the school year. June will likely be just as busy, but then glorious, glorious July and August will be at hand. 🌞

Between my two jobs, I’ve been spending A LOT of time working! It isn’t the worst thing, since I actually really love what I do. Nevertheless, I am definitely looking forward to things slowing down a bit in the summertime, and the ability to fit a bit more reading into my schedule! (Don’t remind me of the fact I have to take my professional examination sometime in there as well… πŸ™ˆ)

February & March 2022: Monthly Wrap-Up

Yes, you read that date correctly. It IS already over a week into April and I AM just now posting my wrap-up for February… πŸ˜…πŸ™ˆ

In my defense, SO MUCH STUFF happened in February and March! I celebrated my 27th birthday (πŸ₯³), I started a new job (on top of my old one…), my partner and I moved into our new ✨house✨! 🏑 And then got to learn all about the ~FuN~ that’s involved in house maintenance. (Pretty much, it started leaking from our ceiling and caused a ton of water damage… but luckily our builder is in the process of repairing it.)

January 2022: Monthly Wrap-Up

Hello, friends! How has the new year been going for you? For me, 2022 has been off to a good start! Honestly, it’s been a little low-key. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ (Not that I’m complaining). Now that I’m officially a part of the workforce and no longer a student things in my life have really settled down. My day-to-day routine has become, well, a routine. Yup, kind of boring even.

Not gonna lie, I’m LOVING it, though? Stability has been good for me. πŸ˜‚ I’ve been able to do a lot of the things I wanted to do when I was a student but never had the time/energy for. I’ve been eating way better, working out semi-more regularly, doing lots of reading, and getting back into my other hobbies. (And hopefully starting to blog more too?) ✨
