- 8th-16th: Kevin and I did so many things over these 8 days. Like swimming, movies, walking the strip and more. You can check out the full list here! -

- 16th: Kevin leaves. I cried. A lot. -

- 27th-29th: Stress beyond belief. So glad that lifted a little. -
- 29th: Got the job at Kohl's! Yay! -

Happiest Moment:
Any moment with Kevin. There were so many. If I had to choose. The end of day one of his visit when we realized that we still had seven days left. That was a good feeling!

Saddest Moment: 
A toss up between watching Kevin leave or finding out I might have to move home to live with my parents. Both were very awful. And both made me cry. A lot.

Favorite Food:
Chicken Fingers from Raising Canes. They are SO good. How have I missed out on these for so long?

Also, it's not food, but Raising Canes has the BEST Lemonade ever. Seriously. Try it. Now.

Books Read: 
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I think this was the fourth time I've read it. Kevin and I read it together. I love this book!
Delirium by Lauren Oliver - So good! I almost passed this one up. So glad I didn't!
Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien - I wasn't sure for the first few chapters, but I ended up loving it!
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - A wonderful prequel to the Mortal Instruments series! I love Clare's books!
Entwined by Heather Dixon - So cute! And surprisingly nail biting! I loved it!
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - Read with Kevin. Loved it just as much the third time. He loved it too!
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson - Took much longer to get through than it should have. I didn't love it.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - Still not thrilled with it. I'm not as numb and exhausted as I was when I first read it. Thanks for reading it with me, anyway Kevin.

New Movies Watched:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - Wonderful! It was fantastic! Alan Rickman's performance was the best part!

TV Shows Watched:
Avatar: The Last Airbender - Definitely one of the best cartoons out there, if not one of the best shows period!

Overall Impression:
The month went from very busy to very very very slow. And all of that down time made me feel very down. I'm feeling much better now. Things are beginning to work themselves out. At least a bit. It's going to take some hard work on my part. And I'm excited to get my hands dirty in August.
