I’m going to be honest, July was not a great month for me. There were a lot of disappointments, so I am very glad to be putting that month behind me. That being said, August doesn’t look like it’s going to be amazing, and I would really like something amazing. But there are a few fun things I’m looking forward to, and here they are:
- I am finally getting out of town for the first time in over a year, and I cannot express how badly I need this. Every year my parents get together with some family friends for a weekend, and any offspring who can come do. I missed out last year. There’s a chance that no other offspring are coming this year, and for some reason, we are booked for multiple cheese factory tours, but I don’t care, because as long as I’m not stuck in my boring town, I’ll go anywhere.
- In June, Archie Comics released a reboot of Jughead’s Time Police, which was a series I enjoyed finding in the digests I read as a kid. Plus, I adored the character January (who, by the way, was the only person Jughead ever loved, so take that, all you Betty/Jughead shippers). Anyway, I don’t really read comics all that much anymore, so I wasn’t going to go buy this reboot, but I noticed my local library had it, so I have it on hold. I’m not totally in love with the art style, but maybe I’ll warm up when I get into it.
- FanExpo is this month. I want to go because a lot of cool people are going like the cast of Smallville and Rainn Wilson and Zachary Levi, but now that I am without employment, I feel like I shouldn’t be dropping like $100 for one day. Plus I have no one to go with. That being said, it’s not until the end of the month, so if I get a job before then or a friend is willing to go, I may be inclined to treat myself.
- Speaking of being unemployed, the one somewhat decent thing about it is having a lot of time to kill, so I want to use the time to write more and watch some TV shows I’ve been putting off. Last week I watched Schitt’s Creek and I loved it. So there are a few series (and even some movies and musical boots) I’ll probably get to this month. Sometimes I ask myself, do I watch way too many TV shows as a way to fill a void in my life? And while the answer is almost definitely yes, I still enjoy it and enjoy being able to enter a new world. It’s a happy place for me.
Anyway, that’s my August. It’s also my best friend’s birthday this month, so there is a good likelihood that there’ll be a social gathering, and I enjoy those. Otherwise, it’s just job applications and a messy sleep schedule for me. Hopefully your August is looking better, and if it is, I’d love to see a MLA post of your own!
That’s all for now!
