Let’s Have a Cuppa: July 2020

Hello and welcome to all you beautiful people. See, I told you. I said I’d post this on time.

How are you all? Safe and happy I hope. If not, that’s okay. To quote Mor from a Court of Mist and Fury “There are good days and hard days… Don’t let the hard days win.” I’m about halfway through that book now and I love it. A big step up from the first one. What are you reading at the moment? Anything interesting? Would you recommend it?

We are now well into summer, at least in the northern hemisphere. I do not cope well in the heat. I’m a winter baby, I melt in the summer. Funny enough that’s only when I’m inside. Walking under the sun I don’t mind the heat so much. How are all of you coping? Enjoy the sun when you can just make sure you’re also looking out for other people. Just because the weather’s nice doesn’t mean the spreading of disease stops.

The only thing I didn’t talk about in my June post was music. I’ve taken a leaf out of a friend’s book and set up a Spotify playlist for the month. Something I plan to do each month. So songs I listen to on repeat/obsessed with get put in there. I constantly add to it as the month goes on. I’ve really gotten into a style of music dubbed bardcore. Imagine your favourite pop song but with a medieval sound and old english lyrics. That’s bardcore. It’s amazing. My musical obsession for the month has been SIX. I know with Disney adding Hamilton I should be excited about that but my heart yearns for a different historical musical. One frontlined by six powerful wives that are adding the prefix to history.

So aims over the month of July. Uploading At least 2 posts a week would be ideal, even if just overall that’s what the number divides into. That would work out to 8 posts in total over July. Do able. I want to increase the number of followers for my blog to 25. Increase my Twitter followers to 20 and my Instagram followers to 55. I would include likes on my facebook page but I’m not too fussed with facebook. These may seem like small goals but slow and steady wins the race. If I set ridiculously high goals that I’m unlikely to achieve I’m going to feel very good about myself. Defeat will start deeping in. Defeat will lead to self-doubt and I don’t need more of that in my life. Away from my blog I aim to start writing my first book. I will finish my world building, know it inside and out. Then I will start writing with a goal of 5,000 words by the end of July. I see all these goals are very achievable.

July looks to be a very active month. If there is anything you wish to see a post on let me know. A movie, TV show, video game, anime, book and so on just let me know.

Thank you all for reading and being here. I will see you in the next post.
