Hi everyone! Today will be my lively May post!This post basically revolves around my hobbies and what my progress was for the month. I did my May books already in a separate post as I did read quite a bit this month.
Here we go!
I haven’t done any creative writing sadly enough but I did write my first draft of my graduate school statement of purpose! I am going to go back and revise it this week.
I had a great blogging month! I completed a blog post every day for my personal project, BirthMay! This was so special for me because I had dreamed up BirthMay over a year ago where I would celebrate for my birthday. I worried that the posts wouldn’t be good, or I wouldn’t stick to it, or even that everyone would get bored of hearing from me. Quite the opposite! I loved the posts I wrote, I wrote every day, and I got some great feedback from it! I didn’t want it to end!
Running & Health
Well I failed quite a bit in this one. I didn’t run once this month, sadly enough. I pretty much only run on weekends and one of those days I am usually working for my dad’s company (more on that later). On the other day it’s usually been cold, rainy, or I’ve had other plans. I hope to get out and run this month though!
Small Business Work
My dad has his own business. It’s very small, as he’s scaled back the company after he bought his partner out a few years ago and decided he wanted to work full time instead. We have one client now, so it’s manageable with just our family. On weekends we dedicate one day to the work. It is landscape work so that’s why we have to plan according to the weather. It takes up a few hours of the day and is a great way to earn some extra money! I do the invoicing once a month (for one client, takes two seconds) and every few months I do the accounting work as well. Fun times!
Film & TV
I didn’t really see any films this month but I have been watching some tv. I have been watching some more of The Office. I’m on season 5 and I don’t want to spoil anything but it’s been a pretty good time this season!
I’ve also been watching a tiny bit of Anne with an E as well. Based on Anne of Green Gables, I watched part of the first episode but the internet was being very spotty in my room (furthest point in the house from the router) so I gave up on that and then my parents put it on over dinner (my dad is Netflix obsessed) and he put on the episode where Anne gets her period and invites Diana over for tea.
That’s really all I got up to this month! It hasn’t been as much but I think I made up for it as I read a lot of books! It seems to be one or the other lately.
