JANUARY

I didn’t wait two months to write this, shocking, I know. January was an interesting month. I kicked it (and 2017) off with a very quiet New Year’s Eve featuring Planet Earth. It really was the best NYE I could have asked for. The rest of my time in Texas was, busy, to say the…

DECEMBER

I should write these on time. The beginning of December flew by in a whirlwind of essays, cold, and stress. I turned in around 12,000 words in essays before flying home a few days before term ended to catch Morgan’s graduation from nursing school. She is officially old. And brilliant, and responsible, and the coolest…

NOVEMBER

It’s December 31st. I’m not sure I remember November. This has been on my to-do list for a month. I’m really bad a blogging, I know. November was a train wreck, to be honest. I’m looking back at my calendar now and I’m not sure how it all happened. I think I say that a…

OCTOBER

Coming back this year I was determined to blog more. Clearly, that didn’t go well. October was the first full month back in England, and the start of my second year of uni. I’m not sure if it was having 3 months off that made me forget how busy things were, or if this year…

SEPTEMBER

There is a point just before a trip or moving or an event where it hits you. And while the entire month of September was leading up to heading back to school, it didn’t hit me until the Saturday morning before I left. Standing in the shower with too much shampoo in my hair I…

AUGUST

I don’t quite know how it’s already September. It feels like July started just yesterday. As the middle of my 3-month summer, my August was not filled with ‘back to school’ like the rest of the world seemed to be. There was something incredibly nice about looking at the ‘back to school’ displays while still having…

JULY

What do you mean its the end of August and this hasn’t been written… July was a lot like April, but without the variety of countries and school work. It was however, almost constant travel and lots of work, just of a different kind. Becuase I do really hate having ‘nothing’ to do, I decided…

JUNE

*let’s all ignore that this is literally almost 2 months late, okay? Okay.* June was strange. June was exams and meetings and planes and work. June went from 60 degrees to 100 degrees. 2 out of my 3 exams were in June, so the first 2.5 weeks were really just lost to books, notes and…

MAY

This is the last month I will end here in the UK until I come back in September, and that feels really strange. I’m not leaving particularly soon, but I will end June (very jetlagged) in Austin. So here is May. When writing these monthly summaries, I pull up my calendar and look at the month…

APRIL

I wrote about March almost halfway through April, sitting on a train. I wrote that I needed something new, a little calmer, I needed a break. I failed to realize that April wasn’t going to be that. March and April bled together into a muddled mess of travel, stress, and change. It’s honestly hard to…

MARCH

**You’re kind of supposed to start ‘monthly’ things at the beginning of the year, but that would require me to have planned ahead, and know what I wanted to do with this blog. But since I’m not going to do weekly updates, I thing a monthly wrap up would be a good solution, and a…
