Last month was one of the craziest I have had all year. I had SO MUCH work. I'm talking like working from morning 10 to night 10 work for two weeks and then I had a much deserved vacation. It was definitely a roller coaster of a month.
Being in a book club has been a dream of mine and we are going strong which I really love. We meet up every month to discuss the book we are reading. I really enjoy it. On July we were reading The Hating Game which we aptly really hated so the meeting was quite full of emotion.
There were also so many banbuekyo baiy days (which are my favourite because I love it) that my mom so graciously made for us. She's the reason we are getting fatter by the day.
One of the bigger highlights of my month is that I finally caved in and purchased a bicycle. I've been meaning to do it for ages (and my parents finally gave up on telling me it will get lost). Meet Saoirse, named after the Irish actress that I adore. I did ride it once in Male' and freaked out so much but I'm definitely going to ride more.
I have been obsessed with nail art for a while and one of my friends came by and let me do her nails. This is one of my favourite nail art I've done and I even experimented with some rhinestones. Nail art is so therapeutic.
Ofcourse the most exciting thing to happen in August was the Eid trip to my island R.Rasgetheemu. We've been planning this for a year. My entire family and 13 friends went on this trip. It was so so much fun. We participated in all Eid festivities, held a kids festival, went on multiple picnic trips and basically had a blast. I shall write a whole blog post about the trip.
Work was hectic as usual and I had so many classes. I had a new batch of students who were extremely fun to teach to and we had a wonderful time.
Overall, what a nice month. I am excited for what September has to bring. How was your August?
