September 2019 – Month In Review

Happy October! It’s supposed to be autumn here but we had two days that were 90 degrees Fahrenheit (about 32 Celsius) which is definitely not normal for central Pennsylvania. Please give me colder weather and apple cider (which is the SUPERIOR fall beverage). I want to wear my sweatshirt.

School started this month (more on that in a minute) and it was a bit of a struggle to get into the swing of things this year. Because of that, I wrote a grand total of one blog post this month. But it’s a good one! It’s about books: Making the Most of Required Reading

On a related note: I’ve decided to revisit how and when I post things on my blog, and you can find all the details here: Blogkeeping: New Schedule!

And finally, you can check out my 1 Second Everyday Compilation for September!

Read on for the rest of the month!

May & June 2019 Month in Review

May & June 2019 Month In Review

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Between two different trips, finishing the academic year, and beginning my summer job, I’ve missed not one, but TWO Month in Review posts! I know, I know, I’m the worst. It’s okay, you can say it.

But as atonement for my wrongs, today I bring you a MIR double-header, covering May and June of 2019. That’s twice the stuff to go through, so I’ll do my best just to hit the highlights and keep it brief. But if you missed any of my other blog posts from the past two months, check those out first:

And you can check out my 1 Second Everyday videos from May:

And June!

Without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to the past two months.

March 2019 Month In Review

Happy April, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the transition between seasons like I am – we finally started getting some warm weather here in the past few weeks, which is a relief after such a long winter.

I’ll tell you a little more about my month in a moment, but first, here’s what I blogged about this month in case you missed anything!

I’m still keeping up with my 1 Second Everyday project as well – here’s March’s compilation!

Winder scene with text "February 2019: Month in Review"

February 2019 Month in Review

I was going to make some kind of remark like “wow, the month went by really fast!” before I remembered that February is in fact the shortest month of the year so of course it went by fast. Anyway, even though it was short, February was a good month with a lot of cool stuff happening.

Before I get into that though, if you missed any of my blog posts this month, I blogged about…

Oh, and don’t forget to check out my 1 Second Everyday compilation for February!

January 2019 - Month in Review

January 2019 Month in Review

Congratulations on making it through the first month of the year! I don’t know about you, but January seemed to go by fast for me… which I can’t say I’m feeling too upset about, since it’s been bitter cold here in Pennsylvania for most of the month. Despite the below-freezing temperatures though, I had a great month!

Before I share all of that though, here’s what I blogged about this month in case you missed it:

  • What I want to accomplish in 2019 (and what I did in 2018)
  • Cleaning a bunch of books off of my to-be-read list (in two parts!)
  • What we can learn about writing from Avatar: The Last Airbender

By the way, I’m also back to doing my 1 Second Everyday videos! You can watch January’s compilation below:

October 2018 - Month in Review

Month In Review: October 2018

Can you believe it’s November already? I feel like the beginning of October was just yesterday, honestly. It’s scary to think that the end of 2018 is on the horizon…

BUT ANYWAY

I had a pretty busy October – good in some ways, challenging in others. As many of you probably know already, I decided to take a sort-of break from blogging for a few weeks, since I’ve been feeling creatively drained lately (you can read all about it below). I’ve still been sharing some lighter posts every week, but so far, this break is helping a lot.

In case you missed anything I blogged about this month, here’s a quick recap:

September 2018 - Month In Review

Month In Review: September 2018

Happy October! Depending on where you are in the world, it might finally be starting to feel like autumn for you (yes, we had 80-degree days here in the middle of September). Midterm exams are coming up at my school, but I’ll be going home for Fall Break in less than a week! I’m looking forward to it.

And in case you missed anything on Maggie’s Musings this month, I blogged about:

Month In Review: August 2018

It’s official – we’re in the fall months now! School had finally started back up for me, and things are starting to get busy in my life again – which explains why this post is going up a little later than usual. As always, thanks for being patient with me. It’s been a bit rough transitioning from the summer to the school year, but we’re getting there.

There was quite a bit happening this month, so if you’re interested in seeing a quick summary of what I did this month, check out my 1 Second Everyday video for August!

And in case you missed anything on Maggie’s Musings this month, I blogged about:

As a whole, August was a pretty crazy month with a lot of transitions. That doesn’t mean it was bad – on the contrary, I got to do a lot of exciting stuff this month in-between the busyness.

Month In Review: July 2018

Happy August! I gotta tell you, July flew by so fast. It’s hard to believe the summer is almost over, but I’ve still got one more month to go.

I’ve kept busy with Camp NaNoWriMo, fun trips with friends, and other adventures here and there as well. If you want a quick summary of my month, be sure to check out my 1 Second Everyday video compilation from July – just a quick glimpse at what the last 30 days of my life were like.

And in case you missed anything on Maggie’s Musings, here’s what I blogged about this month:

I also made some changes to Maggie’s Musings this month (including a new domain name and a Facebook page). My About Me and Writing pages are newly updated!
