and hello September, which means that fall is super close. (Yeah, I know I’m super late with this.) And since it’s my favorite season, I’m very much looking forward to it. My wardrobe works so much better, when it’s not a million degrees outside. And don’t even get me started on the beautiful colors.
So about this month. I was pretty much stressed out most of the time. Work was really crazy, cause there was a birthday edition of our newspaper in the making and since we ended up with 64 pages, you can imagine what a job that was. So I was the happiest person ever, when it finally hit the printer and everyone is really happy with it. It’s a nice feeling when a big project turns out great. There are more good things that revolve around work, but unfortunately, I can’t talk about them. Just know, your girl is doing pretty good.
I was really frustrated with my blogging and social media skills, though. I was doing so great in July and then I started August off with a lot of promotional tweets and then, it just stopped. I got so caught up in work and when I didn’t work, I was too tired for anything. This project took away so much of my energy and also time, cause I did have to get some work done on weekends. So I just stopped scheduling tweets, posting on Instagram and with all the writing for work, I didn’t write for the blog. It was just one of these months, where I absolutely sucked at this. But I guess it happens to all of us. I also have wayyy too many hobbies and also friends and a family. So who cares about numbers, right? (Me…a bit.)
My grandma celebrated her 80th birthday in the middle of the week, which was not ideal but it’s a big thing that she’s still around, so we all tried to manage and it was nice. I got to hang out with my cousins, my god son and my future sister in law and we had a pretty good time together. We went for a little walk through the woods and I ate wild berries, which sounds so stupid, but I kind of felt like a kid again on summer vacation, where you’re just out all day with your friends, riding bikes or camping in the backyard. I really miss those days a lot, since being a grown up can really be annoying.
I spent a little time with my friends, which is always a must, no matter how stressed out I am. My highlight was definitely a day in Frankfurt though, where I met up with a great friend I went to uni with. We had such an amazing time shopping, eating, doing some sightseeing etc. I spent so much money on things I don’t need, but I felt like rewarding myself for working my butt off.
So that was my month. It had its ups and downs but all is well. I’m really hoping for a great September though. I will have two weeks off starting on the 20th and I’m gonna make sure to have a lot of relax time. I really want to get back into scrapbooking, so that’s pretty high on my ist. In general, I have fun things planned and I can’t wait to share everything with you.
Stop and smell the fresh air. Appreciate everything you have. Get your fall wardrobe in order. Reward yourself. Make somebody smile. Put together your fall TV schedule. Surround yourself with people, who don’t take themselves too seriously. When you feel like the whole world is crushing down, try and hang in there a little longer. Have a great September.
Tons of love,
