As you know, I went on vacation last weekend. Except it was definitely the type of vacation where you are more tired after you get back. Friday finally came and I was so happy to be able to have a relaxing weekend. I have spent my time reading (although I am not too thrilled about … More Finally a Restful Weekend
Did I ever update that my book box came? I think I did. My days have been getting jumbled. It’s a lovely Saturday except for the fact that the high is 104 degrees Fahrenheit. I’m definitely staying inside. I am studying at one of my favorite cafes (the one with the delicious grilled cheese). I’m … More Studying Saturday
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
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!
What a lovely Sunday. I got to sleep in and then heading to couple’s counseling to figure out what’s going on in my relationship. It was pretty helpful and forces us to talk about issues in a controlled setting. Now, I’m at a great little bakery and getting some writing done. I’m snacking on some … More So much food and so many books!
The Farewell was so amazing. I didn’t really know what to expect going into it. I especially didn’t think there would be so much dialogue in Mandarin. To my pleasant surprise, I was able to understand a good bit of it without subtitles! I guess my lessons are paying off 🙂 A lab mate recently … More I don’t wanna do my homework!
