it's here

The month of July was a whirlwind.

I honestly thought I would have more time to blog, but it didn't work out that way. Schoolwork kept piling up. Work obligations. My boss's death. The Hope award. It all kind of melded together to make one messy month.

I'm happy it's ending. There were good moments but ultimately, July felt like torture.

August will be better. August will be the three-week break between a brutal summer semester and a MUCH easier fall course load. August will be birthday parties, a casino cruise with friends, the beach, getting ready for New York, etc.

But most importantly, August will be wrapping up the homestudy paperwork.

August will be the beginning of the end.

I hope.
