Month in review: October 2017

Last time I did a month in review was July. I’d like to say there were deep and meaningful reasons for waiting until October to do the next one, but there weren’t – I just forgot. Now that I’m bullet journalling again, I’m hopefully going to get better at not forgetting things! On the subject of bullet journalling, I shared my November set-up, so I’ll talk about that again in a few weeks and let you know how it’s going.

October was the first full month of Silver the kitten living with us (and of course he has his own Instagram). Silver likes to paw at my phone and he even opened the Instagram app by himself so maybe he wanted to check out his profile.

Autumn is in full swing and everything looks super pretty at the moment, which is great for photography. I started to reclaim my yoga and meditation practice, and even got to be an existential horror superhero, thanks to my friend Laura (who is an amazing artist).

My biggest mission of the month was preparing for NaNoWriMo. I wrote about it at the start of the month and then again at the end of the month. I also spent a lot of time thinking about writing, especially the supportive online writing community I’ve found and the value of paying creators, and I wrote some poetry too.

With Samhain at the end of October, it’s the last month of my year and I love the feeling that something new and exciting is about to begin!

  1. Good luck with NaNo! I found your bullet journal posts inspiring. I’ve been trying to get a bit more organised too. Hoping i can use my newfound drive to tick off a few big things that have been on my to-do list all year before 2018! Heh
