And it was one of the best ones I’ve had in quite a while. Summers have always been difficult times for me. I am usually broke. I am usually lonely because my friends live far away. But this year I had a job that allowed me to save enough to get by, and my partner helped me, too. My friends came down to visit a couple of times, and I hung out with my partner’s friends as well!

While there were still lots of moments that I felt that summertime sadness, I got through it! I spent a ton of time with my sister (mostly playing video games), I went to the beach, and I got hired as an art teacher! It feels like things are finally falling into place.

Staring at my leg hair. My mom keeps telling me to shave.

You’re probably wondering why the heck I wore this sweater on a day that the temperature measured 90 degrees (32 Celsius). If you’re thinking I’m a masochist, you’re only partly right! I actually went to the hospital today with my grandma, so I wanted to wear something warm. She’s going to have surgery in a few days to remove her lung cancer. The whole family is very worried about how it’s going to go, though the doctors say there’s a good chance that it’ll go well since my grandma is otherwise healthy.

I made these earrings! It’s a very easy DIY, perhaps I’ll make a post about it.

I’m going to try to enjoy this last week of summer vacation to the fullest. I have teacher training sessions to attend and lots of work to do, but you can bet that I’ll be staying up late, sleeping in, and binge-reading the Anne of Green Gables books up til that very last day!
