Month In Review(s) - August 2023


Warning: brief mentions of mental health problems


...August actually wasn't that bad.

Which is freaking awesome as far as I'm concerned!

(In case you don't know: my 2023 has sucked.)

Title: August - Awst

I mean, my mental health hasn't been brilliant - but so much better than in July - and I had a migraine which is really not fun.

But honestly given what this year has been like, and that my migraines are linked to changes in stress levels, it's really not surprising.

Oh, and a grasshopper pooped on my hand!

Because life is interesting when you have cats in the countryside, OK?

I rescued mr grasshopper - yes, by picking him up in my hands, I'm definitely a rural kinda girl -  and he did not want to leave me until he'd done a poop *shrugs*

...He was beautiful, which slightly makes up for it.

I cut way back on my blogposts in August - as I tend to do at least once in the summer because apparently I need a structured framework to stop myself from over-working - so I didn't write any of my regular blogpost series.

...In fact I only wrote like 3 posts over all - I intended more, but I had a lot of other work and stuff going on, so it's probably a good thing that I didn't have as much regular posting to do!

A reminder that my regular series(-eses) will be back on these dates:

Comics Wrap-Up - 7th September

Friday Fics Fix - 8th September

Nerd Church - 10th September

...I'm not gonna pretend I managed to get anything pre-scheduled, so this is very much business as usual 😅

  1. That's a super cool grasshopper story! I guess I didn't know that grasshoppers pooped XD

    1. ...What did you think they did instead?! Almost everything poops (which is a paraphrase of a US picture book title, I think...) - it's just that they don't poop bigger than themselves, so you tend not to see it. In relation to their overall size, though, it's a *lot* of poop!

      And if you think that's cool, then you'll love my September cricket (the type of grasshopper, not the sport,) story! ;)
