June marks the first month where I did not have a full time job or its equivalent in part time work Not In My House since I graduated high school. It is very Weird Feeling, to be honest. But also, I feel rested for… probably the first time since then. My furchildren have been very happy to have me home and at their beck and call.
I’m doing some public relations work for the county I was covering as a reporter, which has been very fun, despite the rumors several people have started about how I got the job. I’ve also applied for approximately every copywriting job I can find, to have a semblance of a steady income. I also started a very simple bullet journal, which has been fun to do so far.
However, it’s also meant that I haven’t been reading as much. I did read several books for Publisher’s Weekly, but those aren’t on here for anonymity purposes. I will say that I had several rough ones that didn’t get reviewed.
So here’s what I did this June – check it out! Tell me about your June in the comments, or any fun plans for July!
