Bye bye July and hello August,
there go seven months of 2016 and I’m still where I was when this years started. The only difference is, I’m currently not feeling super bad about it. I’ve decided to not feel ashamed or super annoyed about my current situation anymore because it just is what it is. Instead, I try to focus on things that I love to do and embrace the fact that I have so much time on my hands. Sure, I still think about what to do with my life and how to get there but I don’t obsess about it, since that gets me absolutely nowhere. Some things just take time and eventually, something good will happen.
This month wasn’t super eventful but still not terrible. I have my room back, which is fabulous. For those of you who don’t know, last month, our basement was flooded, which included my room and it was just super annoying. But it’s all good now. I have pretty new carpets, my stuff is where it belongs and I can just enjoy proper me-time, again. I also spent some time with grandma, which always makes her incredibly happy, but I can only go so long without wi-fi. I know it’s terrible how addicted I am, but that’s just how it is. Still, it was nice to be there.
Pokémon Go entered the world and people are going crazy, all over the world. I think it’s hilarious and downloaded the app, as soon as it launched in Germany. Now I have to say, it’s not super fun to play where I live, but I still managed to collect 50 Pokémon by now. Considering the fact that my village not even has one Pokéstop and I have to drive everywhere, I think I’m doing quite well. It does make me move around more though, so I think it’s a good thing.
I went out once and got super drunk but managed to finally figure out how to do it without ending up with a hangover. (Can I put that on my resumé?) I also went on a canoeing tour with a bunch of girls and it was a fantastic day. I was so proud of not ending up wet because my balance is terrible. The weather was good, the landscape was beautiful and we just had a blast. Well, at least my canoe group did. I can only highly recommend this fun activity to everyone.
Other than that, nothing much happened. Except for the Rihanna concert I went to but that was so bad and not worth mentioning. Just know that my third time seeing her live was the last time and I didn’t even buy a tour shirt. There was just not much going on and I was also pretty anti-social. For the past 1,5 weeks, I didn’t do anything but get up, work on my scrapbook while binge-watching Friends, and go back to bed. This is what heaven is to me. But I’ll try to make August a more social month and I hope that all of you will have a fabulous month, as well. Let’s all hope for perfect weather. (Like that is ever gonna happen.)
XO Hailey ♥
