My Summer Highlights – Link up

It is time for another link up with Kiki from The blogging prompt that she and her co-host Leelee came up with is once again perfect for me: Summer Highlights.

There are quite a few career things on the list (I can’t help it!), but a lot more personal things:

First of all, the obvious things: My appearance changed. I lost weight, my hair is lighter and longer and I looked more tanned in the end. The latter vanished pretty quickly and, unfortunately, it seems like the weight thing is changing back, too. So I guess, changes in appearance don’t count 😀

What does count though, is the change in my attitude, the way I perceive myself, and the way others perceive me.
