I have been loving my summer vacation. It’s really not the ideal kind of summer vacation obviously, but after this school year I really needed it. I have been thriving while hanging out at home and reading. I also adopted some cats. It’s been a really, really interesting month. Anyways, let’s just jump into my wrap up!
