Month in Rewind: July 2015

And I am back with my month in rewind posts. I’d started
writing these posts last year and then I sort of stopped writing them. But
since July marked the beginning of a new phase of my life, I’ve decided to be
as regular as possible writing these posts!
I woke up to July in a different city- Bengaluru. July
marked the beginning of my journey as a professional, of earning my own bread
and being an independent person. The first job is always special. A lot of new
things for me- new place to stay and the best part- making new friends! And yes
exploring different parts of Bangalore as well. Thanks to my training which
took to me to the various locations that the company I work for is situated in.
And the highlight of July apart from the new job was
blogging! Blogging had taken a back seat from the beginning of the year due to
various reasons and that is why I decided to take up the Ultimate Blog
Challenge for the month of July. And I ended up writing more posts in July than
the rest of the year gone by put together. The challenge really proved to be a
difficult one because writing every day after the training sessions and the
long tiring travel wasn’t easy. Thinking what to write each day made me go
crazy at times. And to make matters worse, I didn’t have good internet
connectivity in my room. But all my efforts paid off as not only did I complete
the challenge, my blog also crossed the 50k views mark. There were times when I
thought of giving up as it was becoming very difficult for me to post each day.
But the constant encouragement by my friends and readers made me continue
blogging. And the prompts at A prompt each day helped me overcome my writer’s
block to a great extent. And I promised to gift myself with something if I would complete the challenge. So right now, my mind is thinking of the perfect gift to myself. Any suggestions?
Reading took a back seat this month due to lack of time.
Weekends are also spent in office at times or in just spending time with
friends and catching up with them as it is not possible during the week.
Bangalore has been good to me so far except for the traffic of course.
July was good for me. But the only thing that makes me sad
is that I am so far away from home. August you better be good. I plan to catch
up with some reading this month. Hope I get to visit home in August. How did
July treat you? What are your plans for August? Please let me know in the comments.

    Welcome to Bangalore! I'm glad Bangalore is treating you well and you are enjoying your stay here.

    These monthly posts are wonderful actually. They make you look back at the memories and then help you plan the next month as well. I'm glad you are back on track when it comes to writing. Reading will follow too don't worry.

    July was wonderful for me, and August is my birthday month! So I know that it is going to be great.
