July was a very busy month for me. Looking back, I can’t believe I’ve done all the things and gone to all the places I’ve been in a space of four weeks!
It all started out on July 1st when I left home to go to the USA Synchro National Championships in Seattle, Washington. (Our team came in 14th place. Hopefully we’ll make finals next year!) After that we had a few days more to practice and then the team was off to the Synchronized Swimming US Opens in Las Vegas, Nevada. There we swam as a senior team and a combo, and won 2nd and 6th place.
After that, I left Vegas early and went straight to Boston, where I’ve been for the last two weeks taking seminars at Boston University. I’ll be here a few more days, and then I head back home to get ready for the start of my junior year in high school.
Books I Read This Month:
#1 – Heist Society by Ally Carter ★★★★★
#2 – Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society #2) by Ally Carter ★★★★★
#3 – Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3) by Ally Carter ★★★★★
#4 – Delilah Dusticle by A.J. York ★★☆☆☆
#5 – Delilah Dusticle’s Transylvanian Adventure by A.J. York
#6 – Don’t Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski ★★★☆☆
#7 – Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau ★★★☆☆
An exciting finish with lots of great reveals. This wasn’t my favorite of this series, but it was still enjoyable.
#8 – The Eighth Day (The Eighth Day #1) by Diane Salerni ★★★★☆
This book takes three or four chapters to really get into, but it turns into a great story with lots of twist and turns. I look forward to more!
The music video for Barenaked Ladies’ song ‘Did I Say That Out Loud’ came out and I really feel in love with that song. Another song that has been stuck in my head a lot is Area 11’s Shi No Barado.
RWBY is back for Volume 2 and better than ever! The first two episode’s are out on Rooster Teeth’s website and I really love them.
