The Month That Was: June 2016

8 years

In June 2016 I completed my second class at university, joined the planner world, made plans to quit smoking and got a car!  🦉

This month was kind of busy and lead to a number of big things that will have an impact on my future, and I have to say I am feeling very positive about them. The most exciting is that I finally have a car! Well, I have all the paperwork completed, but have to wait until next week before I can pick it up, so I will certainly be writing a more detailed post on that soon. 💖 I also completed my second class at Uni, which was Design Studio: Concepts & Narratives. I don’t have my final grade yet, but I am confident I passed. I learned a huge amount and can’t wait to start my next class on Typography in a few weeks! 😁

  1. In June I got my learners licence back so no, I don’t drive 😀 I initially got my licence back when I was 17 and then I let it expire instead of renewing to a full licence. So now I’m back to my L’s, if I’m less lazy this time (I originally got them 2 years ago) I can have my licence (I might be able to negotiate a full licence due to prior experience) in 6 months.
    I also found the existence of PuppyCam and well, it took a lot of my nights 😛

    In July I plan to vote :'( (can’t wait for the election to be over) and that is about as far ahead as I have planned 😛

  2. Congratulations on your new car! I’m so happy for you!

    1. Well I saw more of the US. Tried (and failed) at being mail delivery driver. Started a blog 😉
    2.Help more people. Be a more productive person in my household.Grow as a blogger.
    3.Driving is one of the rights of passage for young adults in the US. So I definitely drive. I think I’d go bonkers if I didn’t.

  3. What have I not done in June except bring ruin? Jk. But I’ve had problems and it’s annoying to deal with mania from Bipolar Disorder. I finally caved and got a planner, a kawaii planner and hope to have it soon 😀

    Good progression in June!

  4. Yay, congrats on getting a car! I’m hoping to get one by the end of this year as I’m currently learning. Freedom!

    I wish you the very best of luck on your journey to quitting smoking. My mum quit 2 years ago after smoking for over 30 years and I’m so proud of her. I think she’s noticed an improvement in her health, and definitely in her bank balance!

    In June I went on holiday, but I don’t really have too many plans for July. Just focusing on the driving I guess!

  5. Yay for getting a car! 😀 And good on your for completing your second uni class. Quitting smoking is also a great plan, and I wish you luck with that. I’m sorry for the loss of your bird 🙁 *hugs*

    I didn’t do much in June. Just work, work, and work . . . with hobbies and socialising thrown into the mix. XD I didn’t accomplish much, either X_X; Hopefully I can do a bit more in July!

  6. One that worm is freaking cute! XD

    Congrats on the new car! And I’m sure you did awesome on your exam!

    Sad to hear about your bird. We lost a few this year ourselves, so I know how that feels *hug*

  7. Oh a Typography class sounds like it would be a lot of fun!! It looks like you got a lot accomplished for the month of June. Congrats on your first car! Did you name her?

    Also love the pink hair!

  8. What a wonderful month you’ve had! (Minus the poor bird.)

    I can’t drive, so I can’t get a car. Although, I need to save to move out so that should be my priority. Luckily Brighton is a city where you don’t need to drive.

    I’m 30 in July, so I will be spending the month dreading my birthday then feeling sad afterward haha.

  9. Congrats on the new car! I also love the color of your hair. That’s a nice shade of pink. Sorry to hear that one of your birds died though 🙁

    I just bought Life is Strange! I’ve heard good things about it, and I plan on playing it soon. That’s also exciting that you’re working on your second children’s book. Can’t to see it later!

    I went to an Anime convention in June, but other than that, I don’t think I did anything special. I’ve been hanging out with friends more this month and am also preparing for my next trip! I do drive, which is convenient, but I also wish my city had better public transportation =/

  10. Congratulations on your achievements of June! Glad to hear that you finished your second class with another coming up soon! Hope your grades come out great!

    More congrats on getting your first car. I do drive because it’s pretty necessary to get around town here. I love cars (even more when it’s packed with power)! For some reason, I thought you have been into planners since forever because cute is your domain X’D. Have a great July!

  11. Congrats on the new car!
    It was a magical day for me when I was lucky enough to get my sister’s old car. Metro is terrible in Houston and not having a car was just blah!! I am now spoiled by the very fact I have a car and can never go back to riding the metro. The light rail is a bit different, so I might make an exception for that.

    Congrats again on the car and school and reading!!! And your stop motion animations were cute!!!

  12. I’m so proud of you for achieving and committing to very important aspects of life this June! Well done for getting a car – I’m going to start driving lessons this upcoming August, I’m quite nervous but I’m excited for the feeling of buying my first car xD

    Well done again for completing the second class at uni, I know it takes a lot of motivation at times so I’m glad you stuck by it 🙂

    What did you do in June? Work, celebrated 20th birthday ^_^
    What are your plans for July? Holiday!!
    Do you drive? Not yet 😉
