My Momentous Month | July 2015

Holy cow. I can't believe that it's already August now. Where has the time gone? It seems like 2015 just started and now it's almost over! It scares me a little because I start my senior year of high school this month, which is crazy!

I did pretty well on the reading front this month, considering I had a few camps such as jump rope (where I coach young girls) and field hockey camp that I went to since field hockey starts up soon at school. I've managed to read 92 books so far this year, which is insane. I've never read this many books by this time of the year! It looks like I'll break 100 this month, which is pretty awesome.
