Life in August

The beginning of August meant the start of my 101 in 1001 project. It’s something I was working on for what seemed like ages, but the list is up! I’ve always loved the idea of 101 in 1001 because it’s like having a bucket list, only there is a set date to achieve it. Here’s hoping it motivates me to try all the new things and get lots ticked off!

Right at the beginning of the month we visited my cousin in Leeds, and had a lovely family weekend eating chinese food and going to the Tropical House! I love these places because of the butterflies flapping out, and I know that’s why many will hate them! I think we were pretty lucky with the weather, and the gardens surrounding were so pretty!

I took part in the booktubeathon! (Was that really this month?! It feels so long ago…) I really enjoyed taking part, and was pleased with my progress! I also started on a writing project and submitted some work so here’s hoping it goes further! I also wrote about writing and inspiration here.

And I joined the gym! I’ve really been at a loss without it since finishing university. Without a gym, I find it difficult to exercise because the motivation just isn’t there. With a gym, I’m paying (only £9.99 a month!) so I feel like I should go, and I do go. Plus, I love it! Lifting weights is my priority at the moment, and especially working on my squat/deadlift.

So yeah, August was actually quite boring really – I didn’t do much at all! Maybe September will be more exciting…

As for the blog, I’m not sure where I’m going with it at the moment. I’ve been at a bit of a loss recently trying to figure out what I want to focus on. I still want to leave it quite general (and lifestyle), but I feel like I’m just got too much variety going on. Hmm. What do you guys think? Do you have a preferred post/theme? I may try to get a survey together soon so keep an eye out!
