I’m always thankful for the end of the month. The end of June is something bittersweet, however. On the one hand, June was a chaotic month, and one where I thought more things would happen. An odd thing to say given that so much did happen in June. The school year ended, I found an apartment, I got even more items for said apartment, I received my teaching materials for the fall, and more. On the other hand, now that June is ending, the countdown is on for when I move and for when I need to have my syllabus ready for the fall. I’ll be balancing the roles of Instructor and Student come September which means I have to be prepared for both of those roles.
I have a feeling I’ll be eating a lot of chocolate in July.
June is practically over which is sad because it’s a reminder of how fleeting summer is. With that in mind, I’ve decided to create a Summer Bucket List to make sure I make the most of what’s left of the summer:
I’ve written similar posts before where I’m thankful for it being a new month. The thing is, I’m always thankful when a new month starts because it’s a new set of beginnings. In June’s case, 30 days of new beginnings, opportunities to fill each day with memorable moments.
Time passes so quickly that most of us don’t even notice until it’s gone. I guess that’s one of the motivations behind “Project Thankful” posts: to document the days, to write 365 posts of thankfulness, reflection, and life.
