Life, Etc.

In terms of reading, I’ve been bouncing back and forth between fantasy and contemporary. I knocked out another reread in Illuminae and got to a couple of BEA arcs. Challenge wise I’m doing pretty darn good surpassing the halfway point in all of them and even completing the Flights of Fantasy one. I probably should have made that one more difficult given my affinity for the genre.

 Sitting and watching soccer all day is my happy place and I’ve been doing so much of it in June. With summer comes major soccer tourneys and this month I’ve been blessed with both Copa America Centenario and Euro 2016. I also volunteered at our local Father’s Day Soccer Tournament which I’ve grown up doing. My life is like a constant soccer extravaganza even after all these years.

A fun event I attended for the first time was the local International Festival. There was tons of amazing food and lots of music. Thankfully it wasn’t too hot in the evening to be outside. The next morning was the parade which I volunteered to walk in for the library. We promoted the summer reading program, Exercise Your Mind, with coworkers dressed up as a Rubik’s cube and a massive brain.

All in all a pretty great month! How did June go for you?
