Hello September.

Is it just me that isn't looking forward to the colder weather? Being able to wear make up without it sliding off your face because of the heat is a bonus. But you have to contend with the wind and rain so ... Of course with winter comes the holidays so I guess it's swings and roundabouts.

Wrapping August up, what did I get out of it?

» Probably the biggest thing that caused an absence in August was my hard drive. A few days after my last post my MacBook slowed down, seemingly out of nowhere. I couldn't do anything without getting the pinwheel of death, even just moving the mouse caused it.
After many attempts at troubleshooting I found that the root of the problem was my hard drive was failing. It was running ridiculously slow which meant I wasn't able to really save anything, including a whole ton of photos. I guess that'll teach me.
I ordered an SSD, fitted it myself with the help of FaceTime with one of my best boys and it's running like it's all shiny and new again.

» Halsey's debut studio album BADLANDS was released. I've been listening to it nonstop on Spotify since it's release which was only a few days ago but I can't get enough. I absolute New Americana, Colors, Roman Holiday and Ghost. Ahhh ... What the hell, I love them all!

» I overhauled my CV with the help of my cousin and I've started applying for new jobs. If I'm honest it's a much needed change. There's only so long you can work in retail.

Summer went by in the blink of an eye. What does September have in store?

» The way I run things on my blog is to have a folder full of photos which I can then edit and post when I wish. Instead of having to rush to take them to get a post up for tomorrow.
Since I lost a lot of photos in the SSD change over I'm hoping to try and not let it have too much of an impact. Hopefully things will be back up and running smoothly again soon.

» I have a week off work which I plan to utilise for getting photos, writing and scheduling blog posts. Whilst having a little 'me' time as I haven't been feeling so great recently.

» I'm getting a long overdue haircut and I'm contemplating bringing the full fringe back. Mainly due to the fact I have to wear my hair up for work and I prefer it up with fringe. Plus if I'm having a bad brow day it doesn't matter too much.

I really don't have much planned for September, I'm waiting to see how it plays out.

On a final note, please can we not do the whole Green Day song reference thing for the entire month?
