Goals, Monthly recap

August Wrap-Up

Oh dear – looking at my wrap-up for August, it’s clear my brain has been somewhere else this month!

With a pathetic total of 11 posts (which I think may be my worst month since starting StudentSpyglass), it’s obvious blogging hasn’t been top of my priority list right now. To be completely honest I’ve barely even turned my computer on all month apart from the occasional sims session. I’ve not been feeling very well recently (nothing too serious don’t worry!), and to be honest most days this month I’ve been coming home from work, putting on a comfy pair of pyjamas and just chilling out!

I did at least manage to get a lot of reading done this month. I’m hoping to spend all day  tomorrow blogging and scheduling some posts for September, so fingers crossed for a better blogging month ahead!

Favourite thing I did this month: Switch off and relax!


Books read: 13 (+4)
Pages read: 3697 (+915)
Average pages per day: 119 (+29)
Favourite: I read some really great books this month, but my favourite would have to be Crown of Midnight
