My Very Nice Weekend

It seemed like a much-deserved holiday weekend for me, because I have been laboring my days away since the week before school started. But now I’m back, and while I also spent the weekend doing homework, I also had some fun. Of course, hard work is important, because I don’t live to work, I’m working to live. So enjoy reading about what I worked for this past weekend.

I Finally Finished Reading The Summer I Turned Pretty

This book has been a slight thorn in my side these past couple of weeks. Before the television show came out, I saw a trailer and said, “Oh, I’m going to read that before the show comes out.” But then it seemed like it came out the next day, so I barely had time to try to read it. It seemed like all of the podcasts that I normally listen to were talking about it the weekend after it was released. So in my dedication to not spoil this book before I read it, I pretty much have a lineup of podcast episodes to listen to once I watch the show. Now that I’ve finally finished reading it, I have to wait for my sister in order to start watching the series. We’re planning on having her come over so we can binge watch it together. To bide my time, I thought I would go through a discussion of the book. In my research, I found a fun reddit thread for a Taylor Swift inspired book club, and they chose this book back in June. Since I love Taylor Swift, I thought it would be fun to go through the questions for today’s blog post, especially since I’m also still waiting for the re-release for the rest of Taylor’s albums, or just more new music. I’ll take what I can get.

What My Lazy Day Looks Like

While today is National Lazy Day, I am probably not having a lazy day right now. If you’re reading this, I am probably at orientation for graduate school, because that is what I have on the schedule bright and early today. But for today’s post, let’s pretend that I am having a lazy day and what that would look like for me. You know, if I could’ve had one today.

The Quiet Weekend of Nursing and Working

No weekend blog last week, because all I did was work. This weekend wasn’t too different, but it was more interesting than the last. Before it even started, my boyfriend got one of his wisdom teeth removed, so I was pretty much playing nurse to him. Luckily, all my friends are nurses, so I had some backup if anything went wrong.

Predictions and Discussions for Where the Crawdads Sing

So tonight, the Where the Crawdads Sing movie officially drops to the public, and I have to say that this all happened very fast in my mind. I remember reading the book in 2021 and really appreciating the complexity of people and emotions, and I did not expect the book to become a movie. When I heard the news this past March, I remember wondering how well the book would translate to screen.

I’m Feeling Good About Pre-Ordering Books

As much as I call myself a bookworm, I have only now, at twenty-four years old, pre-ordered my first book ever. I held back from doing it, because there is the part of me that loves to visit the bookstore and to see the book on the shelf before I buy it. But after my first time doing it, I will probably do it all the time now, especially since it’s one of the best way you can support an author you love.

4 Favorite Things I Did In Las Vegas

There has been an itch that I have not been able to scratch since this pandemic started, and it was the itch to get out and travel to places. That being said, I was very fortunate that my boyfriend’s family picked to go to Las Vegas for this trip, because there is more to do than just party the night away and then go into gambling debt during the day. I’m going to tell you a few of my favorite things that I did on my trip in today’s post.

What I’ve Checked Out From the Library

I love books, and I actually used to be a real snob about going to the bookstore and owning my books. The thing about library books is that they would never be mine, because I would always have to borrow it and return it. However, I did have a library card, and I still have it to this day. Since I’m trying to save my money during tax season, and it’s National Library Week, I thought I would take the time to visit my local library and see how its doing. Keep reading to see my thoughts and what I checked out from the library.

5 Books I’m Reading During Black History Month

For me, being an ally and supporting the black lives matter movement is more than just talking about it and posting a black box to my Instagram feed. There’s work to be done, and I want to continue to grow as a person by continuing to educate myself and putting action to my words while showing my support. That’s why I made sure to take the time this month to support black authors and educating myself with the following books.
