A Late September Wrap Up (+ an Update and an Apology)

11:15 PM Serena 2 Comments

Hello, all! Long time no see! I've missed blogging so much. Another month has come to an end, and we are officially in October! And you know what that means. Actually, over a week into October now because this is so late. Oh well, that means it's definitely time for another monthly wrap up!

September was another really busy, stressful month for me because of school things and life things, so I profusely apologize for not being able to post as much. I'm still trying to get my groove back in the midst of classes and studying for the SAT and such. I may not be able to pick up speed with blogging again until the end of the year, but I'll try my 100% to get myself together sooner. But for the next few months, consider me on a pseudo-hiatus. Again, I'm so sorry that my posts are far and few between. I'm working on it. I'm also working on a blogoversary giveaway because, in the craziness, I totally forgot my one year blogoversary happened! So stay tuned for that when I have my life together.  :)

Anyway, here's what happened this month:

In non-bookish/blogging things...

I took my friend to her first concert! We saw the wonderful Ms. Cassadee Pope and even got to meet her after the show.

I met Aurora, completing my quest to meet all the princesses I can at Disneyland during my sixteenth year. It was an exciting time.

    1. Thank you, Tanya! Things have settled down a bit, but I'm still a little scattered. And yes! It was an exciting time. They are all so cute!
