Hi everyone! Welcome back to Blogging with Reese!
It’s now officially August (and it has been for the past 6 days), and so although this post is a bit late, I’m doing a July monthly wrap-up!
Wow, it seems like the further we get into 2021 the faster it goes.
Now, as you know, I’ve been posting on Fridays, but I feel like that’s too restricting, because I’ve also been wanting to post on other days, so I have decided to just post whenever. You can expect a post once or twice a week from now on!
Anyways, on with the wrap-up!

Wow, looking back, I feel like it was forever ago that I read some of these books, not just 4 weeks.
As you can see, I have only one DNF (because I try to finish as many books as I can). It was just so cheesy and nothing happened, so I had to DNF it. On the other hand, I finally read Unlocked!!!! I’ve been waiting for months (spoiler-free review coming soon!)!
Believe it or not, July was actually a pretty productive month for writing for me. I wrote 5 blog posts (okay, not super productive…), but my friend and I started working on a script together (I’m not sure what for, just kind of for writing), and we’ve been having a lot of fun with that!
We’re also gonna write and preform a skit for our school talent show! Well, it’s like a talent show, but there aren’t specific winners.
I didn’t exactly do a whole whack of stretching and become super flexible, but I did stretch consistently, and that’s what matters. I’m hoping to stretch more in August as well.
I went on a 3-day trip to Kazbegi National Park, so that was a lot of fun! We went hiking to Gergeti Glacier, and kinda got rained out, but we still hiked a long ways. (Comment if you want a full post on this trip!)
I also have been volunteering at the dog shelter a lot, and taking tons of pictures of the pups for the dog shelter website, which I’m really enjoying! We’ve dressed some of the puppies up in little costumes and done puppy photoshoots! The dogs are so sweet, and each of them has their own personality.
Speaking of animals, some kittens have moved into my neighbourhood, so I’ve also been spending time feeding, taking care, and photographing them!
Also, I saw Hamilton, and I have discovered that I absolutely LOVE it. I listen to the songs all the time; on my way to babysitting, while I’m doing the dishes, or doing school projects (though not a lot of work actually gets done when I’m listening to music).
Overall, July was a pretty fun month for me!
