Where has the month gone?

Never has a month passed me by so quickly as this August. I suppose it has been another whirlwind of activity, both at work and at home, but still I can’t quite believe that we are already in September.

In the blink of an eye I have applied for the manager position in my store and started the process of moving in to a new flat (with any luck I’ll be there in September). Some major steps right there. Having cut my annual trip home short due to other commitments, August has in fact been pretty difficult but it is absolutely not without its high points.

Nearer My God: How Foxing’s new album is so much more than its “sound”

One of my favourite things about music has always been the way in which we consume it. I have never cared about perfection, nor how to define a sound.

It’s hot and I’m getting old

Although June was not quite as busy as previous months, it really tired me out. Which is strange, because come to think of it, I had a whole month of Saturdays off – quite frankly unheard of.

Not in June though. A whole month of a completely different schedule in this gross, sticky heat…well, I think it may have broken me. Not just because of work, but also because I actually ended up making plans on some of these Saturdays instead of hiding away in my flat and you know, relaxing. As I type this I am remembering just how busy in fact June was. No wonder I’m feeling it.

HUJI: Love or Hate?

Right now every other person I follow on Instagram is using HUJI, the app that turns your phone camera into a disposable from 1998. Date stamp included if you so desire. Knowing how much of a sucker I am for these kind of apps, I tried to steer clear of it for a good while, but as expected, here I am, insanely attached to my virtual disposable.

Celebrations

One minute I haven’t been home since Christmas, the next I’m on my second trip back to Kent just ten days after the first, with yet another visit on the horizon. Everyone has that month with ALL of the birthdays, and for me that month is April.
