The Month That Was.... July '15

After we got to June, I’ve been very aware of the days passing by, so its no surprise that August is here.

July has been a so-so month. It started off on a not-so-good note that lead to this rant, I’m not going to elaborate or I’m afraid I’ll start off again.

I attempted the UBC Challenge by doing a couple of mini-challenges within and I had so much fun with them :D Only got to post 20 instead of 31 but I love every post, mostly because of the meanings of the words I picked.

Third week of July was horrible. It is so difficult to stand up to someone who is nothing but nice to you and say that you need something done your way. Especially when it means a lot to them as well. Guilt, frustration, systematic degradation of mental health because of the above factors, all coming together to drive me up the wall, leading to my second most severe panic attack (I didn’t know they were panic attacks, I thought I was losing my marbles once and for all). And scarily enough, writing about it doesn’t help,  neither does reading; it scares me to think about what I’ll do the next time (if there is one).

Then the last week swung by, bringing with it sunshine. My personal sunshine that made everything go away and made it all better. I also spent the last couple of months stalking a lot of new blogs, giving me reason to put down a few blogging essentials. Aathira and Sanch gave me blog awards, ones that make me glad to be part of the blogging world yet again.

And top everything off, I just came back from a wonderful weekend with my fun peepals :)

It’s funny how things started on a negative note and ended on a good high.
I've also been more careful with my health than ever last month and I'm hoping to amp things up this month as follow up.
I’m not questioning anything now :P Just going with the flow and welcoming August with open arms.
Ms. August, how you doin’?

  2. This is more about June than July! So I guess just like me you too didn't realize how quickly July passed by.

  3. I've had panic attacks; not severe ones, pretty mild ones actually. But they were so bad. It can't even be described.
    July for me was... hmm, it wasn't too bad. Let's see what August brings!

  4. Wow. You had an interesting month.

    I had a month, the kind that I wish never happens again. I think I will write a blog post on it just like you did.
    And oh, the challenge in the last month was awesome. That 10 Day challenge was made by you, was it? Can I take up that challenge ?

    I hope you have a great month ahead. :)
    Take Care. :)
    PS: Share some health tips, please?

    2. *Reads the comment while sipping the 4th coffee* Umm this is awkward. :(

      Ok, I will. What I wanted to ask was whether I could use the one with your picture, I mean the one you made.

      Protein. Okay. But wait, what's that ? I will google it.

  8. I loved your take on the odd-words especially. It was wonderful reading your UBC posts. Hope you're okay now and the third week has been put away in a corner. Glad you had fun with your family. Wish you could've made it to the meet at Hard Rock Cafe. I'm looking forward to August too. :)

  9. Aww, why you no tell me? I'm sorry it started off bad, and I'm glad it ended happy.

  10. You should totally link up to my 'The month that was..' :)

    Sorry to hear that July wasn't the best. Re the panic attack, it's the fear of having another one that makes it worse...next time it happens, count slowly and breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Take care lovely...

    1. I'm okay with the bad as long as the good is just around the corner, its the hopelessness that gets me down :.
