Some Summer Highlights

Last. Day. Of August. [Got that summertime sadness… 😉 ]

This month I’ve been lax with my posting because life has been busy, in a lot of good ways. In August I think we all try to squeeze in as much summer as we possibly can before it’s all over, and this month was no different for me.

August was such a short month: I started a new job writing lifestyle and editing for a site called Popcrunch, and I took all the time I could to spend time with friends, go to the beach, eat a LOT of ice cream, enjoy these summer nights, and do new things.

There’s this hiking trail in Peekskill, NY that my friends and I did this month, and it was basically climbing up the side of a mountain that opened up into this amazing view. Here are some pictures of the view from the top of the mountain:

And then a few days ago my sister and I went to the New York Renaissance Faire like we do every year! I absolutely adore the Ren Faire and happily indulge my dorkiness and my love for old-fashioned dresses.


Highlight: when I accidentally hit a bull’s eye during archery! I had an amazing Katniss moment and my sister caught it on camera.

That is the face of someone who will never hit a bull’s eye again in her life.

With a trip to San Francisco, a new job, and a lot of time spent with friends, this summer has been all I wanted it to be. How has your summer been? Have you done anything cool/fun/exciting?

  • I love your dress and headpiece from the faire!

  • How awesome to get your bullseye and reaction on camera!

    • I know! Totally unexpected. Probably never to be repeated. 😉

      • Haha you never know! Btw, reading your post I just remembered that you do freelance writing, which is something I really want to get into! Any tips on where to begin?

        • Hmm, well I started by blogging and then I used this as a portfolio of sorts, but I also did a few internships in college that helped me get jobs. I’d say to make a list of sites you want to write for and apply to them all, and don’t give up! I started really small and I’m still very modest, haha. It takes a little time.
