Another largely uneventful month, unfortunately.
With COVID-19 and Arizona still doing not so great, I’ve been mostly staying at home and continuing my routine. I still spend my days swimming, watching YouTube/ Netflix, hanging out with my family and dog, cleaning out my social media accounts, organizing my computer and applying for jobs. I have taken up embroidery, which is a nice activity to do while I zone out to Netflix. I’ve also read a lot more than usual this month (15 books!), participating in The Reading Rush. My family launched mini-fireworks on Independence Day and my brother moved in with his girlfriend, but other than that it’s been quiet.
It’s usually to hot to do anything outside in Arizona (I went for exactly one hike this month) this time of year and I’m longing to get outside. I think I might take a mini-roadtrip to a cooler part of Arizona or southern Utah and hit some national parks soon! I think camping is relatively low-risk, especially if I’m traveling alone.
