November in Retrospect

hello? it’s me.

Happy December!

Last time we talked, I was avoiding social media and wallowing in the shallow darkness of my near-depressed mind. Things weren’t awful but they weren’t great. I existed in a fog of “Everything is happening, and I am exhausted”.

Since then, we’ve had Thanksgiving (and Black Friday and Cyber Monday and a sudden influx of green and red decor) here in the States. I had 5.5 days off of work, away from the internet, and hidden from people. It was fucking fabulous.

For all of the things I wanted to do this month (from carving pumpkins to getting started on my Christmas shopping to surpassing 200 blog followers), October was so not productive. But that’s okay! It was still a mostly great month.

When I was in school, it meant there were just a few days left of summer vacation because schools in Michigan start up the Tuesday following Labor Day. But I’m a full grown adult now (how and when did that happen?) and while it still feels like the end of summer, I’m buoyed by the fact that I no longer have to deal with the education system. 🙂 (*devoutly ignores looming student loans*)

So, here is my August in Retrospect, the first in a series I plan on doing at the end of every month. I’ll focus on a few categories that have been most prominent this month, say a bit about each, and wrap it up with my favorite blogs for the past few weeks and what I’m looking forward to in September.
