Things That I Believed For Way too Long #1

Hello Humans of the internet!  I hope that you’re week is going great!  Mine is going better then it was on Monday so it turns out that it was a long day not a long week.  (Guess that was a bit of an over reaction).  So, I made a discovery today that led to me writing a post about things that I believed for way too long, but it turned out there were way too many things.  That post is being divided into a series of post of which this is the first.  

I wasn’t sure how to introduce this other then by just saying it:  I didn’t know that July had 31 day.  I have spent the last 22 years of my life believing that there were only 30 days in July.

I discovered this yesterday while filling in my planner (I like to set monthly goals for myself).  I was genuinely surprised when I noticed that both August and July had 31 days.  My first thought was that there was a typo in the planner.  I actually thought, “this is what I get for buying a planner from Dollar General.  It was probably made under terrible conditions.  This is the last time I’m buying a discount planner.  They didn’t even care enough to get the right number of days.”

Anyway, I showed this to my dad hoping for a reaction.  But instead my dad laughed at me.  He retaught me a trick to remember how many days are in each month.  It blew my mind.  I can’t explain how much this blew my mind.  I felt like I had been living a lie.  I thought that there were only 30 days in July.

The only excuse that I could think of for this is that I didn’t typically keep up with the days of a month during the summer while in school.  It was a time to not have classes.  Honestly, I don’t know how I never noticed this.  I really hope that someone out there also didn’t know that both August and July have 31 days or at least found it funny that I didn’t.  I have about 5 more of these that I’ll post at some point in the future.

much love, AK
