The beginning of September has arrived with swift footsteps, and the month brings the start of a new school year. As an avid reader and busy college student, I have experienced the struggle of balancing my homework with my love for books! It can be quite difficult to find the time that you need to read that new fantasy novel, when you are already occupied with a long history essay. I suppose that summer break gives us plenty of time to finish our reading list; however, there are always new books to pour over.
Despite my busy schedule and author career, I always try to devote a few hours to reading on a daily basis. There are times when I only manage to finish a single chapter before falling asleep at night. Nevertheless, you can almost always find a book hidden in my purse. After all, one never knows when they will find the perfect moment to read.
Last weekend, my friend invited me to join her at a music festival in the mountains of upstate New York. We camped in a pale green meadow, and danced to the sound of lovely folk songs. I was able to find several places for exploration, as the venue was located beside some marvelous hiking trails. After swimming in the freezing water that cascaded from a waterfall, we wandered through the center of a beautiful gorge. This was the perfect place to find inspiration for my writing.
In other news, I will be traveling to Ireland in a few days! I can't wait to reunite with my cousins and explore more. I will be sure to keep all of you updated on my new adventures. Keep an eye out for a new vlog on my YouTube channel!
