That’s right! It’s also my dog’s 14th birthday, so that’s exciting! It’s another hot day. 101 degrees F. I’ve basically accepted that I won’t be wearing makeup or having nice hair until fall comes. My saving grace is that I am still in writing mode at work so I can be a little more lenient … More Happee Birthdae, Harry!
So, yesterday did not go as planned. I was so exhausted after work, I didn’t have my Chinese class. I realized that I am still doing too much. Working a full day and then having class until 9pm is just not feasible for me. Instead of staying up late doing homework and trying to get … More Re-balancing Life
It was hard to focus today. I just kept thinking about everything I have to do. After a full work day, I have a Chinese class tonight, which is very draining. Yesterday was a perfect Sunday. I started and ended the day with reading and spent the middle of it watching The Lion King. Unfortunately … More The Start Of Another Week
I think last I updated, I had started The Silent Patient. Well, it’s been what… 24 hours? I not only finished that, but I started and finished The Joy Luck Club. Two very different books and both brought me a lot of joy. I have been working hard on my bookstagram and reviewing books. I … More The Lion King and many books
Yesterday, I took a break from writing my novel and just read. Well… I wrote some book reviews, so I didn’t take a total break from writing. Today was very relaxed and much welcomed. See that book in the picture? The Other Mrs. Miller. I finished it! Have you checked out my review yet? If … More A Lovely Saturday
Yesterday was another amazing day. The cold front has brought “cooler” temperatures. So, instead of sitting outside in shorts and a tank top and immediately sweating. I can sit outside for an hour or two and only sweat a little 😉 It’s finally Friday again. The days are going by faster, which I take as … More New Books!
Yesterday, I got to do something I haven’t done in a really long time. Go to the farmers’ market! I am very fortunate to live in a neighborhood that has its own farmers’ market. It’s big too! No, I can’t get all of my groceries there. I am living on a graduate student stipend after … More Cold fronts bring perfect weather
Finished The Wedding Party, and it was just as good as I hoped it would be. I absolutely love Jasmine Guillory’s style. Many people may take it for granted, but reading about people who look like me without it being a major plot point is a big deal. It confirms that I am normal and … More Venturing into book reviews?
The depression was hitting hard today. I couldn’t make it out of bad. I almost cancelled my Chinese lesson. The only reason I didn’t was because it’s a virtual class. I couldn’t do anything today. Barely had enough energy to write this. Couldn’t read. No appetite. Last night, I was thrown out again. I make … More New Lows…
And we are back to Monday. The depression was hitting hard today. I almost didn’t make it out of bed. There are days when all I want to do is sleep… days when I don’t see the point in getting up. I used to be really passionate about my life. I loved my life. I … More At what cost?
