Okay, so September ended a while ago. I meant to write this post on the last day of September, but things got in the way. I had a last-minute interview, and a couple of rough days and I needed a little bit of time to focus on other things. And that got me thinking; obviously blogs by their nature only show selected aspects of people’s lives. I mean, no one wants to read about my slow night in when there was nothing on the telly and the biscuit cupboard was running low. But do we edit out too much of the bad stuff? Should bloggers, as far as they do talk about their lives, talk about the good as well as the bad? Let me know what you think!
Without further ado, here is my round-up of September on Jessthetics! I’ve been busy.
September’s been a month of learning new skills for me. I made a paisley shirt for James, a paisley kimono for myself, and I signed up to the Autumn Stitching Club to learn to embroider! (Here’s Autumn Stitching Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4.)
I also started making my room nice by making a vase out of a log, and I shared the DIY here.
Phew, it’s fun to be able to look over what I’ve done. At the beginning of September, I set myself four goals. I have sorted and bagged all my things, started some big projects and improved my lifestyle a little (I’ve been having granola and berries for breakfast, and only one cake a day – much improved!) I haven’t yet got a job or an internship but I’m working on it. Three goals out of four ticked off, not bad right?
