It’s currently raining outside, I’m wearing a big sweater and I have a steaming cup of tea sitting in front of me: it’s autumn! I couldn’t be happier, because there might be nothing I love more than autumn. I feel so much more myself while wearing sweaters, baking apple pies and walking through a very colorful forest, and I can’t wait to see what this autumn will bring.
September has been a weird and busy month for me. I did a lot of things that I wasn’t able to do before (anxiety wise) and the biggest thing of all is that I started school again! I now take three classes at home: English, Math and History. It’s been very challenging, because I haven’t done any schoolwork for the past one, maybe two years, so I’m a bit out of it. My concentration gone after about five minutes, and it feels like everything I read just isn’t saved in my brain. Let’s hope that this will improve after a few weeks, but we’ll see.
I also participated in the #DiverseAThon last month (you can read my #DiverseAThon wrap-up here), and I loved every second of it. I really learned a lot, and I am determined to read more diversely in the future.
