How’s it going? I hope you are all well and enjoying humpday! 2 more days till the weekend!
So, it’s August! August is one of my favourite months of the year for a few special reasons.
1. August 1st is always the day when I panic. Whenever I know that it’s August, I’m reminded that warm weather, doing really cool and fun things with friends and family, shorts, flip flops and sunglasses (all things that I looovveee) are soon going to end. That is actually the reason that in August, my social life kicks in to high gear. I don’t want to waste one summer moment, as soon it is back to school! :
2. It’s vacation time! The month of August is usually the month that we go away as a family, or at the very least, we all take some time off from work (or whatever it is I am doing) and just do really fun things together. I am a very family oriented person and this special time is always one of the highlights of my summer :). Since we already went away in May for my uncle’s wedding, we are just going to hang around in my area for the most part, with some road trips thrown in for some extra flavour. So excited! 😀
And last but not least…
3. It might be a lame reason, but it is a true one. I enjoy back to school shopping. I am someone who really enjoys the thought of a new organizational system for her lecture notes. Or, discovering a new colour coding system with the use of my new coloured pens! And getting all of these super cool supplies on sale!? HA! You’ve got to be kidding me. It’s heaven!
Well, now I have one more detail to round out that list of special reasons…
I am doing a blog-a-day challenge!!!!! *squeals from excitement*
That’s right! Every single day in August, August 1 – August 31, I am going to be participating in a challenge that requires me to complete and upload a post every day! I have heard about this from various people, but I thought that it would be especially fun this month, of all months. Plus, it will not only get me back into the groove of things, but it will push me to get great content out there and more often than usual! It’s like a 2 for 1 deal at McDonald’s, except you don’t have to worry about all of those carbs, calories and fatty acids! Furthermore, this will also help in case I end up going on an unexpected vacay from this lovely blog space (which will hopefully never happen again)! I attempted to do this challenge in June, but failed miserably. However, given that I had the time to revamp this blog and plan ahead, I DO NOT plan on failing again! 🙂
Alright, so I realize this may be hard for me, given the circumstances (please see my update post), but I am dedicated to this and I plan on *not* letting you all down (for once!). After all, what’s life if not a bit challenging, right?
Okay, so, that’s all! Welcome to the first day of the month’s posts and I look forward to the rest of it! Yay!
