in the middle of last month, i THOUGHT i got over my blogging slump but i clearly didn’t since i only managed to put together one post, which was a blogiversary thing i planned a while ago. *sigh* i’ve got ideas but i just don’t want to do it. :////// but aside from not-blogging, august was fairly mellow. the hot summer days are ending and we’re all trying to get back to a regular schedule. (keyword: trying)
my ballet studio starting rehearsing for our annual show, which is swan lake this year! we did it five years ago and i used to claim swan lake as my least favorite ballet (a girl turns into a swan??? falls in love with a prince who was originally trying to kill her??? then tries committing suicide – in some versions – when he betrays her???? um okay.) but now that we’re doing it again, i actually like it (????). the music is beautiful and the corp de ballet (aka the group of dancers) is iconic. i’m honestly so excited for our performance.
our ballet photo shoot photos were also released this past month~ (i mentioned taking these in my may recap!) since my sister was the photographer, i already saw these beforehand, but it’s still exciting for everyone to get their pictures. i’m surprised by how happy i am with my photo because i wasn’t expecting myself to be able to get the shot. *hides* but it wasn’t too shabby in the end.
read this month
- THE KITCHEN GOD’S WIFE, by amy tan – ★★★★½
- TALES FROM THE SHADOWHUNTER ACADEMY, by cassandra clare – ★★★★★
it was a pretty slow reading month for me, but i absolutely LOVED both of these. love love love x 100000. i talk more about both of these books in my favorites video!
on the blog
summer is officially coming to a close and my favorite season of the year is about to begin! since i finished high school and am not going to college (i guess you could say i’m taking a gap year), i don’t have anything specific planned for the month. there’ll probably be more rehearsals and more youtubing and (hopefully) more reading/blogging.
goals for next month:
- take your first soul cycle class (i’ve been wanting to try it foreverrrrr and my sister says it’s great)
- get more comfortable talking to a camera
- continue decluttering your room
- be more organized/productive
