Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2015

Posted August 1, 2015 in Monthly Wrap Ups / Leave a comment!

I’m so glad it’s August. Now I can finally relax, enjoy the weather(if the sun comes back) and read! Who doesn’t love summer?!

Three Exciting Things that Happened Last Month

  • Moved! Everything is almost unpacked and sorted out. Just need a few more things.
  • Caught up to my reading goal of the year. I’m ahead of schedule now!
  • I’m (trying) to re-brand myself so I’ve started doing that. It’s much harder to make logos for yourself than for other people though.

Three New Obsessions

  • The Body Shop. I love them so much. My skin has never felt so soft.
  • Twitter. I’m trying so hard to be on Twitter more since I know there tends to be more people over there.
  • Creative Market. My new favourite place for design inspiration. I’m hoping to get my new blog up soon. Ish.

Favourite Quote Last Month

“Every Samurai uses circumstances to his advantage, right? Don’t play by the rules. Use your foreigner status to cheat your way out of trouble.”
“One, we’re not samurai. Two, don’t samurai have an honor code or something?”
Tomo paused, scanning the buildings. “Oh yeah,” he said. “I was thinking pirates.”
