August 2016 Wrap Up!


Hey guys!

The last month of summer vacay for all those students has come to a bitter sweet end. For me as a fully functioning adult though, it was just an end to a very hot and humid month. But when all good things come to an end, it’s always nice to look back on everything you’ve done! Besides working my butt off, I also got to do some pretty fun things: went to Wonderland (Canada’s #1 amusement park), attended the #IndigoFallPreview, went to another month of Read Harder Book Club, had BBQ’s, summer road trips, and of course the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition)!

Phew…. boy am I exhausted! So let’s get to how well I did in books!
