Is it wrong of me for singing ‘Rocking Around the Christmas Tree’ this time of year? I mean, we are getting closer to the holidays now. Anyway, I have no idea where July has gone. I feel like this month was one where I was just going through the motions. I’ve been so busy lately that all my days seem to blur into one. For that reasons, I read a total of ZERO books in July. I did actually start reading Obsidio on the rare day off I had but have yet to make a dent in the book. I’m already predicting that AIDAN makes some dramatic/questionable choices, and I am praying that my favourites don’t get killed.
So, on the reading front, there is nothing new to report. However, the good news is that the projector is out so our Summer movie marathon can officially begin. Having a home cinema vibe does come in handy sometimes and when I’m not working most of my nights are spent watching films on the big screen.
As you already know, I have been in a terrible book slump this year. After waiting and waiting for it to end, I have come to finally embrace the book the slump.
I also posted the second part of my On the Road series. Here I talk about my adventures in Canada’s capital, Ottawa.

Take a breather. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that we forget the importance of just relaxing. I already know that this month is going to be another busy one for me, which is why I need to designate a couple hours in the day to just unwind. My sanity needs this!
I would also like to finish reading Obsidio, but am not going to stress over it. I’ll read when I want to read. I’ve also started watching the Vikings and I’m curious to see how this series develops. Have any of you watched the show?
In relation to the blog, I do plan on writing some more discussion posts and finish writing part 3 of my travel diaries. I do realize that I’ve not been as active in my blog hopping and I do apologise for that, but if there is ever a post you’re proud, feel free to drop me a link and I will get round to reading them.
I have no idea where time has gone, but what was your highlight of the month?
Any plans for August?
