The Month That Was

The month that was April 2015

The month that was April

It’s been a busy, busy, busy day for me. In fact, the entire month of April has been busy and May seems to have started off the same way. But now, I finally get a chance to sit in front of my laptop. I have a few days off the next week mainly to work on some assignments that are due the week after.

So, April. That really sped by, didn’t it?

I had signed up for the A to Z Challenge in April and I managed to complete it without too many problems. Towards the end, I struggled with replying to comments on my blogs and visiting other blogs but I intend on commenting on other blogs in the days to come. In case you missed my A to Z of Phobias in the form of limericks, you can check them out here.

Apart from the challenge, I was trying to figure out if I should merge my two Facebook accounts. I bit the bullet and did it. I also had a Foot care giveaway on this blog which ended yesterday. I have to go through Rafflecopter and pick a winner. Whoever you are, you will find out by Sunday. ๐Ÿ™‚

Not much else happened on the blog front. But life was busy. Mr Imperfect had his birthday and we enjoyed a dinner with friends and an adventure at Tree Top Adventure Park. I also had a fun weekend picnic with some friends, a movie night at another friend’s place, a bowling and karaoke night to farewell yet another friend and finally, wrapping up with a friend’s birthday on the final day of the month. Did I mention I was quite social in April? And of course, there was university. We did have a break for two weeks but I also had an essay and then, a presentation due. I now have two short stories to write as well as a creative non-fiction piece on Clementine Ford.

Finally, I also took the plunge and enrolled in the Magazine Writing Course 2 at the Australian Writer’s Centre. It started on the 20th of April and is for 5 weeks. I’m still trying to find those extra 24 hours a day. Work, meanwhile, has been as crazy as ever. It’s been pretty busy and doesn’t help that I’m going away on holidays for 6 weeks from the 1st of June. Yes, this time next month, if everything goes to plan, I will be flying up in the air en route to San Francisco.

I just know May is going to be crazy with me wrapping things up at work and uni and trying to be social and shop a bit before I leave for holidays.

    Sounds like a lot happened and lots of exciting things to come.

    I didn’t participate because I barely heard of A to Z when it started, but I have compiled a post with my favourites for each letter and my thoughts on the challenge.
    Can I still link up with that post when I’ve finished it or does it need to be those who signed up only?

    I’m glad you did the A to Z Challenge. I enjoyed your posts, and you really got into the spirit of things. Hope you’ll think about doing it again next year.

    Don’t sweat the comments too much. You’ll get to them. I finally decided that finishing off the comments and visiting other blogs was something to do between now and the next challenge.

    Sounds like a very busy, but fun, month! April was quite busy for me too, and really did fly by. I can’t believe it’s May already!

    Whew that was quite a month. I don’t think I would be able to handle half of that stuff. And your A to Z was a wonderful read. Have a fun May.

    I am still in shock that we are in May! I got home from my trip on the 3rd of April so today marks a month I guess since I have been home and I flick between it feeling like yesterday and ages ago at the same time! April has been catching up with friends and family since being home and counting down and preparing for my next trip…in just 35 days!
    I loved your limericks but will admit to missing quite a few!
