August is the last month of Summer and usually, for most of the people start of school & studies + the start of another season in the year. Honestly it took me a while to realise that my favorite season of the year was Autumn. I just love the vivid colors of the tree leaves, occasional sunny days when the weather is just right and sometimes even the rainy ones, although the positive person in me cringes even about the thought of rain, cold, mist and snow. Literally, I would be the worst person to live somewhere up north – thank the Universe that I do not.
So, the eight month of the year 2015 came and passed just like that, I did not even feel like I had time to blink and it was gone, I guess that happens when one tends to get busy as hell, no? Anyways, since I was buried deep into paper piles this month something good came out of it – I have finished writing my novel, “Postcard” and nearly finished editing it as well – so I hope that by the time next year hits, I will have unleashed it into the world of unknown and hope for the best.
Also, what happened in August – I came back to studies from Oxford, which was hard because that city made me fall in love with it without me noticing it. Oxford is essentially inspiring, due to its rich history with writers, scientists and so much many more. It is also hard to wrap your head around the fact that most of the city is a university – probably 95 % of the buildings there are either college or university buildings. Harry Potter, The Golden Compass and a ton more movies have been filmed there as well – so it felt like walking in a movie at all times. I have made friends, started liking what I am studying and learned so much that I never thought I would. Safe to say that going back was really hard to do.
Eventually after I came back, almost instantaneously I became busy in its truest meaning. Writing, editing, translating, studying, meeting people I have missed, job hunting, going on an improvised trip – the list could go on for miles, yet I won’t bore you with it.
All in all, August, 2015 was one of the months in my life to remember.
How’s your day?
