Closing Chapter 7: July 2020 Wrap Up

Hello there, bookworms and dragons! How is it the end of July already? No clue. But let’s wrap this baby up anyway, shall we?


I Read

July has been a bit book light and movie heavy for me so this list is a bit of a short one. This is partially because I’ve started listening to language learning recordings on the way to and from work instead of audiobooks. I’ve mostly been reading physical and digital books this month.

  • Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›
  • I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›
  • Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue by Paula Harrison πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›
  • City of Night by Dean Koontz πŸ›πŸ›πŸ› Β½

I Watched

July has definitely been a very movie-heavy month for me! I’m still working on completing the MCU Movie Challenge and this month has seen a fair bit of progress on that. I also got to rewatch one of my favorite series with my monsters. It was their first time watching it, so it was extra special for all of us. Here’s the list of movies I watched this month!


I Did

WORK. Work has been… Well, it’s quite difficult to describe. Stressful and exhausting, for sure. I’m still hoping that some aspects of the job I used to love will reveal themselves at some point in the near future. At least one has–the amazing team of people that I get to call my work family. We’re basically carrying each other through this right now. I could not do it without them. ❀

SCHOOL. I technically finished my class for the semester, but my work isn’t finished. I’ve taken the extra time between classes to work on building my ePortfolio (essentially, a digital thesis) so that I’ll have less to do later on. This is an especially good idea, I think, because I only have two semesters left! 😁

Language Learning. I’ve been doing much better about practicing both Japanese and Ilocano every day, though in different ways. This is largely due to the level of availability of reference material. Japanese has a LOT of reference material, whereas Ilocano has nearly none. Either way, they’re works in progress.

Injury… I pulled a muscle in my back in the last week of July. Which is part of why I didn’t post this wrap up sooner. No worries though. It’s healing nicely and I think within the next week I’ll be back to my regular routine. πŸ™‚


That’s all that I can think of just now. Happy reading, bookworms and dragons. πŸ–€
