a to z challenge:: July Update

Another tough month of transitioning between jobs and moving into my new flat. My roommates are a lot of fun, I’m so happy to be living with two people that are friends and I get along with. It’s a blessing. Also, my friends from my primary job are great and I’m really enjoying getting to know the lot of them. I had them over for a housewarming party and it was a blast for my roommates and then work friends to meet. And they actually got along!! Bonus!
I think overall, I only read 3-4 books in July but I did manage to get rid of yet another letter! Say bye bye letter E. 3 left to go and so much time! I guess for August I should sit down and see what I need to read.
Alright gang, my goal for August is to finish my a to z challenge! I think I can do it, I just need to focus and not binge watch Netflix so much. It’s just challenging when you get off from work at 11 PM not to come home, crawl into bed, and fall asleep with the TV on.
Anyone else close to finishing their challenge? What letters do you have remaining? Stumped on what to read? Let me know, I love figuring out this puzzle every year!
