July Wrap-Up

 And just like that, another month is over in a blink of an eye. This past month has been very eventful for me. I participated in the NaNoWriMo-Camp, went on a lot of weekend trips, completed my fourth semester at university and currently I am writing this form a bench in Sweden. In between all of that I also managed to read a few books. Not as many as I'd liked to, but in the end thats not that important. And now, without further ado: My July Wrap-Up.

A month without headphones

On June 22 my headphones broke. My first immediate thought was: Where and when can I buy new ones? That though scared me. But the emotional state I was in scared me even more.   Headphones breaking should be no more that a mild inconvenience, but to me it felt like I had lost something very important. I was out running errands that day, the thought of running around the city all day without my headphones made me incredibly anxious. This anxious feeling was the reason why I decided not to buy new ones. 
The decision was ruled by a few determining factors:

Let's draw a map

A few weeks ago, I started preparing for the NaNoWriMo-Camp. As part of this preparation I drew a map to visualize the world the story takes place in.

Then I discovered the Instagram Account of Deven Rue. And got seriously inspired. So I decided to redraw the map and make it a bit more detailed.

I like Art. And I like books. Handlettering has given me a way to combine these two hobbies.
But what is Handlettering?
It basically means, to write quotes out beautifully. There are a thousand ways to do it, so there is no right way to do it. Here are some examples of my work:

June Wrap-Up (and July TBR)

Another month is over. Another Wrap-Up is on the way. This time its a bit of a special one. As some of you may know, I was in a bit of a reading slump  last month. To battle the slump I decided to do a re-read month. I set myself the very ambitious goal of re-reading my ten favourite books. I managed to read four. There were a lot of reasons for that, some of which I will explain in this post.
There wont be any real reviews on these books because I have already reviewed them on this blog. I will link those reviews.
Now, without further ado: Let's get into re-reading!
