Hello September | Recently

August went rather quickly! I'm on break again at the moment, and struggling with the idea that I've almost done a full year of university. 

I went away with a group of friends overnight, which was fun! We went to Taranaki, in the hopes of doing a bush walk around the mountain, but sadly the weather didn't let us. We stayed in an old farm house, which was lovely. In the morning it cleared briefly and we could see all the way out to the sea. We played board games and stopped at beaches and slept in and it was just a really nice time. 

It made me realise how much I dislike the city where I live. I thought I had adjusted well to living in the suburbs, but I miss opening my window to fume free air, and the lack of cars going past. And the city itself is inland. Not to say I'm now trying to move, because I know I have to stay put for a few more years. But being away made me uncomfortable with coming back. 

Other than that, August was just job hunting (successfully, thankfully) and university. It all passed in a bit of a blur, which is weird. Some days seemed to drag on and on, but the month as a whole speed by. My life feels sort of stagnated at the moment, just doing the same things over and over. 

Anyway, how are things with you? What did you get up to? Have you been on break? What books have you been reading? Any music I should check out? Have you been doing anything exciting? 
Opal has very little to say, which is weird.  


  1. That vacation sounds incredibly relaxing! xD I wish I could go out to vacation again-- right now, I'm embarking on the first steps of senior year and it's terrifying. I'm glad job hunting is going incredibly well for you, Opal!
