August 2017 Wrap-Up

Posted September 3, 2017 by Stormy in Books / 6 Comments

Life in August:

Well. I moved apartments, finished a summer class, started a new work schedule, and started the fall semester. Writing it all out makes it easier to realize that it’s no wonder I’ve been tired lately. I still have a few boxes I need to unpack in my new apartment, and lots of reading to do for school. I have a long stretch off for the holiday weekend (already off Saturday and Sunday, work is closed Monday, and with my new schedule I don’t work Tuesdays, so I won’t be in again until Wednesday). I’m hoping to get those last boxes done over the next few days, organize the complete disaster that is my closet, and get ahead on school work.


August Favorites:

Taylor Swift’s new single & video. Judge me all you want. I totally agree with a lot of the criticism about it, but I can’t help but to like it.

Carmilla, the web series. I mention this more in my watched section, but I am OBSESSED.

Colourpop. I placed my first Colourpop order this month (for like. . . five lipsticks. Again, judge all you want), and I love them all.

My new apartment! It’s funny because I literally just moved to a different unit at a different building at my same apartment complex, but I like this apartment so much BETTER. My old unit was having a lot of issues, and this one just seems nicer and less like every single thing I touch breaks.


  • A TON of YouTube videos about decluttering and organization. I don’t know why, but watching people go through things and reorganize is so soothing to me.
  • All of season 1 of the webseries Carmilla, which I am now obsessed with. I literally watched the entire season on Thursday, the last day of August.
  • I started watching the anime Snow White with the Red Hair.

July Playlist:

August’s playlist is a random mix of Purity Ring, Taylor Swift, and Halsey, with a few new favorites.



I didn’t read very much this month, but what I did read, I mostly really enjoyed.

The blog’s been awfully quiet. I’ve been posting once a week at most, and it will probably stay that way throughout the semester, so no highlights for August.

      Yes! And then it makes me think that I can declutter everything. . . (even though I normally don’t).

      Yeah, after writing it all out it’s kinda. . . “welp, no surprise I’ve been exhausting”. I like the Colourpop satin liquid lipsticks, so far as I’ve been playing around with the stuff I’ve ordered that one’s been my favorite.
