    I’m SO SAD about summer ending! I just moved to England from South Africa last month and I haven’t had a proper summer since the beginning of this year and now we’re going into Autumn *sigh*. I love summer it’s my favourite season EVER, so I’m hoping this winter won’t be too cold but I doubt it! ;D

    Good luck with school and all your ballet! <3

    • alexandra @ twirlingpages says

      i WISH winter would be cooler! it’s always so warm here in california – not that i should be complaining but still. that is so cool to move to england! i’ve always wanted to go to both of those countries, but i’m sure it took up most of your summer :// but hey, at least you didn’t have to move in the winter right? 🙂 thanks for visiting my blog! xxx

    Giiiirl your summer was amazing. I loved seeing all of your Welcome to New York posts! I’M NOW OBSESSED WITH BADLANDS TOO. Halsey is for real going to be the next big thing. And eeep I love autumn as well! I can’t wait to sip on some pumpkin spice lattes 😉 AND YES TO ORGANIZATION POST. Please do one with pretty photos 😍

    I hope you have a wonderful autumn and best of luck with school!

    • alexandra @ twirlingpages says

      thank you!! i feel like i kept bothering people with my recaps and didn’t post anything else ahah. it makes me glad sharing my so-called adventure wasn’t for nothing! BADLANDS IS LIFE. i’ll be having a post dedicated to it out soon so look out for that 😉 if i do an organization post, i’ll definitely have lots of pretty photos. dedicated to you, of course. <33

    Oh my gosh did you finish Hero of Ages?? I read it myself recently and it was soooo good. Ahh. (But no one I know has gotten past book one and it’s so hard not to just blurt out everything at them. I’d never spoil but it’s like read them all! Please!!)

  5. Nova @ Out of Time says

    you had the coolest summer. like all i did was stay home but you got to go on adventures! so envious and so glad you had a great time <33

    i&#039m not excited to go back to school because i&#039m getting major anxiety over picking a career path. you&#039d think i&#039m going to university with the way i&#039m acting but nope, just grade 10. i&#039m so jealous of the people who are easily picking their majors like you, who&#039ve found a passion. [also dancers are goals because i have two left feet.]

    this post was a little nostalgic but also really hopeful and i enjoy that <3

    • alexandra @ twirlingpages says

      whhaaaat?? you’re only in grade 10?! i thought you were way older because you’re so responsible online. you’re ~goals~. with your superNOVA online presence, i’m sure you’ll find your career calling in no time. (did you see that pun because ohmgod SO PROUD OF THAT ONE.) <3333

  6. Rebecca @ Reading Wishes says

    Well, over here in Australia, Winter is ending and we’re heading into Spring. I spy some posts I missed, will check out later. And yes, I’m sure we’d all appreciate some organisation tips! Hope you have a great September!

    • alexandra @ twirlingpages says

      i’m excited for the cooler weather, as you’re probably excited for the warmer weather! i find it so cool that australia has their seasons flipped from the US. it seems you guys are always one step ahead of us! 😉 hope you have a great spring/september! <33

  7. Kristin @ Simply Bookish Thing says

    Over here in South Africa we are just going into Summer, but I’m more of a girl that loves her cozy days in bed with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book to read, what can I say? I’m a hermit! 😉 I have been dying to read Since You’ve Been Gone and All the Bright Places since foreverrrr! I STILL need to read the first book in the Mistborn trilogy, they’re sitting on my shelves right this minute but they’re just so HUGE and INTIMIDATING and I’m still hesitant even though I know I will love them! *sighs* The struggles of being a bookworm….It’s so cool that you went to NY, glad to hear that you enjoyed it!

    • alexandra @ twirlingpages says

      ahaha we’ll be hermits together! (or separate since i enjoy my personal space?) those two were some of my favorite reads of the summer! i hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to get to it. i just reviewed the last mistborn book and IT’S SO WORTH IT. my main complaint was that it’s really long and really big, but everything is SO GOOD. i hope you’ll pick it up one day! i know i had it on my shelf for a while before i decided i should get to it after all the great things i heard. have a great summer!!

    I’ve realised that I’m going back to school in TWO days and I’ve just run out of posts to schedule so I need to get on that. My main priority this month is to keep on top of everything and stay organised. I have trouble doing work when I get it so it ends up building up and I get stressed out at the end of each term trying to catch up and hand it all in. I’ve also got a lot of added pressure this first month because I have to submit uni applications by the end of October (I think) and I’ve also got a trip to Paris to plan. AH. So much to do. Good luck with your goals!

    Hey Xandra/Xan/Alex/Alexandra! (lol when you have so many nicknames)
    Anyway Xan (sticking to this one because it sounds rad af), I’m glad you enjoyed Dream High and its OST! Kim Soo Hyun is literally my life *heart eye emoji*
    Good luck on using your planner for this month- I’ve been using them for school for almost 5 years and they haven’t failed me yet. :’) I’m kind of sad because this semester I have to take a break on books to put forth my studying. I’ll still be looking at blogs though, and I’m glad I found yours! <3

    Aw, I’m so glad you loved my BADLANDS/Halsey post. 😛 I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from talking about that album on the blog. I NEEDED to share it with everyone that follows me. I hope I convinced some people and made new fans out of them!

    I may be in the minority that’s glad we’re saying goodbye to summer…*hides* It’s like 100+ degrees Fahrenheit ALL SUMMER here, so I’m beyond excited to say goodbye to summer and hello to winter. I prefer it so much more. I’m so psyched for the chilly weather and getting to wear jackets and boots. 😀

    Good luck with your planner! I’m so bad about using and following them… I have really bad “planner habits” because I’ve never really used them. I’m not consistent at all. 🙁
