It is finally the weekend, and boy am I happy! I didn’t sleep in as late as I would have liked, although by the way I felt this morning, I could’ve slept until late afternoon! I went to be relatively early last night (as opposed to my 2-3AM insomnia nights), so maybe it was the … More An Overrated Book?
It’s finally Friday, and I am so relieved. I had a really, really productive day at work, and I’m feeling motivated again. I still recognize that I need break times, but as of now, I’m not constantly dreading everything. My first Book of the Month box shipped! I cannot wait to receive that blue box … More Finally Friday
So yesterday, I got to go to the outdoor Harry Potter screening. There were food trucks, activities, and live music. It was a super cool event and despite the amount of people, we didn’t feel totally cramped. Today is a slow-ish day. I have my tasks to do at work, and I’m just scrolling through … More It Was a Magical Night
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
