Month in Review: July 2022

It's a very quick monthly review for me for the month of July as I spent this month having a break from work and just spending it as much as possible with loved ones. I did some side project work (more on this next month!) related to accessibility so I'll talk about that in my August's monthly review.

Personal Development

🏋🏻‍♀️ I've kept up with my goal of hitting 10,000 steps and more. There was a day though where I've only managed to hit 1k steps! 🙃

My average steps for the month of July which is 13,489.

📚 This month, I finished No Hard Feelings: Emotions at Work and How They Help Us Succeed by Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy. I first saw this book from one of Tristan Lombard's tweets and I'm so glad I bought it! It's such a good read and provided a lot of great examples on why it's okay to show emotions at work. I particularly love the visuals inside the book.

🎧 Consistently listened to my daily podcast episodes.

✍🏼 I did lots of writing this month! I felt like I wrote a book in some ways. More about what I wrote and why I did it on my next monthly review.

July Favourites

  • Filipino feast with friends. We cooked chicken afritada, bicol express and lumpiang gulay. My friends bought squid adobo, shrimp cake, pansit and other Filipino dishes.

  • Trip to Venice, Italy. I had the best penne arrabiata!

  • Had my third tattoo done. It was a combination of flowers, moon and arrow (sagittarius inspired).

  • Finally had floorboards installed in the living room!

  • Trip to Durdle Door with family

  • Chessington World of Adventures with Gabby

  • Finally bought a portable air conditioning unit! It's my favourite purchase so far this year.
