Yes, I am aware asundered isn’t a word, but I don’t care! My website, my word rules. Ha! Anyway, welcome to my monthly wrap-up article! Let’s see what went down in my online life during these past 28-31 days…
I’ll be honest and say I waited until the last minute to write my end of the month article, I’m really freaking tired, and I can’t for the life of me think of a good intro so… let’s get on with it!
Also, HOW IS JULY OVER ALREADY??? Ahem.

Fast Future Fun
Blogging – Expect a ton of content here in August… probably! I’m trying to take part in the following collaborations:
- Blaugust Promptapalooza run by Tales of the Aggronaut
- The Great JRPG Character Face-Off run by Shoot the Rookie and Winst0lf Portal

Creative Writing – I will at some point go over the novel notes I got from a good friend a while ago. I will finish writing a novel someday, dammit!
Gaming – God of War (PS4) is my focus these days. I beat the main story and still got a lot of extra stuffs to do for the platinum trophy.
Life – Still alive and kicking/punching! I hope that doesn’t change anytime soon. Grateful for all the good things going on in my life at the moment, so I’m going to focus on those. Worrying about all the bad things I can’t control doesn’t bring me any form of peace at all, so why torment myself?
That about covers what went down this past month! If you got anything you’d like to share, feel free to make use of the comment section thingy below.
