While it might have seemed like an ordinary month, I think it was a really great one. My writing spirits are back again and I am working on a new story which has me so excited. Also, I tried to spend my off time from work more productive. You know, not just sleeping away half the day and watching some telly the rest of the hours. Instead, I went to see an American Football game, went to some shops I always wanted to visit and I even bought new clothes that I love, which is just great. I have to say, it’s been easier to find stuff that actually fits now that I’ve lost some weight though.

But that wasn’t all there was! There are now more than 600 followers on Life and Other Disasters! I am so grateful to all of you for making my day with every single comment and like. You are simply so amazing and I cannot thank you enough for being so supportive in all of this! After the quite extravagant giveaway at the 500 follower milestone, I can’t afford to do that again. But would any of you be interested in a little Q&A? If so, just leave your questions in the comments and I shall answer them in a separate post soon!
