In Review: September 2014

In Review

 

This month has been both horrible and good, but the stress has been off the charts. I was ‘let go’ from my publicity job, which I have a lot of feelings about so money has been incredibly tight. The bookstore is doing as well as can be expected with it only being open for 3 months. I’m hoping that October will be much better, and that I might be able to find a job that I work while at the store.

We have a few holiday festivals lined up for advertisement. One is for Halloween so I’ll be handing out candy to kids in the downtown area, and the other is for our Christmas Tree lighting downtown. So hopefully I’ll get the name out there some more. I’ll also be going to a Coheed & Cambria concert this upcoming week with my boyfriend and best friend, so yay for that! I got an Xbox One recently and a lot of new games are releasing with in the next week so that’s also something to be excited for.
