When exactly did September begin? I’m sure there are 30 days in the month but it sure didn’t feel that way. I could have sworn it began just last week. Oh well. At least now, we’re in the last quarter of the year and it doesn’t matter that my energy is draining. Three. More. Months.
It’s been a blur of a month. I started off signing up to the September Challenge being hosted by Corinne. Unfortunately, half way through I had to give up as I wasn’t coping. I wrote my heart out on some weekends this September and loved the feeling. The challenge gave me an opportunity to reflect on my childhood days and the games I played. I was competitive back then, and I still am. I found a new author to love after reading her book The Husband’s Secret. Yes, Liane Moriarty has caught my eye and I’ve bought the rest of her books too!
My diet in September kinda fell off the healthy wagon for a couple of weeks. Fortunately, my exercise was at least ok — not great, but ok. I also went back to a boxing class and it’s a good reminder to keep going to it once uni is done. I explored my problems with trusting some people thanks to be burnt a lot. In September, I enjoyed a new link up — 10 things that made me happy. It was good to be able to reflect on a week and try hard to remember a few things that lit up my life. Another positive post for the month was reflecting on leaving home 10 years ago and then listing 99 things I love. It might sound easy but mood-wise, it’s been a tough month. So link ups like these were certainly helpful.
Finally, I also wrote about talking about suicide given that it was Suicide Prevention Day. I wrote a poem about failure: an incident I experienced back in Year 7. I explored whether it was helpful to schedule blog posts and also spoke about being a morning person. Most importantly, in September, we saw a change in the Prime Minister. Best. News. Ever.
I realised I blogged a whole lot in September. I also managed to catch up on sleep in the last week and a bit thanks to uni having a mid-semester break. With October, I now have two more assignments to go. I’m tired though.
I can’t wait for October to finish because then, I’m officially done with uni. I feel like I’ll have more time and therefore, more energy. October starts with a long weekend and more importantly, more sunlight!
How was your September? Are you looking forward to October?
