My August Plans

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while. About 6 months I think. I’m just glad Summer is coming to an end. With August now here, we enter a string of months that I love – August and the bers. Find out more about what I’m up to in August after the jump.


New Academic Year

Is it just me that feels like August and September are the start of a new year? I guess because the schools go back, it feels like a fresh start. I’m still toying with the idea of going back to school. I’m not entirely sure what I would do but I’ve been feeling like my life is in a bit of a rut at the moment. You work 5 days, weekends off. And repeat. I need something to shake it up. A career change isn’t necessarily on the cards but I am open to the possibility of trying new things. I have an interview at the end of August for an English class at my local college. I never passed my Higher English at school so I’m going back to get that A. High school grades don’t really matter once you’ve gotten your degree but there’s a reason which I will divulge at a later date. Stay tuned.



I only have the 1 birthday to celebrate in August and that’s for my nephew who will be 14 this month. FOURTEEN! It’s such a grown up age! I was 15 when he was born and it’s kind of freaking me out that he’s almost the age I was when he was born. It’s all gone by so fast! I’m travelling to Dumfries for his birthday and my brothers and I are taking him bowling. What do I get a 14 year old for his birthday though? It gets harder every year!


Glasgow Pride

August is Glasgow Pride month. Does anyone know why Glasgow has theirs so much later than everyone else’s? I’ve never been to Pride before but after all this nonsense in the US with trans people being denied joining the military and homophobic attacks on the rise, we need to show that we are not going away and we’re not going to stand for this bullshit.


Wedding Anniversary

At the end of the month, it will be my 3rd year wedding anniversary which is absolute nuts. It somehow manages to feel like a lifetime ago and also just yesterday. My wedding was pretty low key and it was spread over 2 days. Those were the best 2 days of my life. I’m looking forward to celebrating with my husband. I’m not sure what the plan is but I do know that food will be involved.

And those are my plans for August? Do you have much going on this month? Let me know in the comments below and as always, thanks for reading Liam’s Life.
