Well hello Sunday my old friend. I can’t believe another week has passed again! ONE. MORE. DAY. OF. SCHOOL. Tomorrow is my last, and then all I have to do is add up some grades and give final percentages and enter them into the spreadsheets. The loss of that portion of my income will hurt (I smell a serious book ban coming up in the next three months), but honestly I’m looking forward to resting. These last ten months have been pretty rough, family wise, so even though I’ve been feeling 10x better physically (yay for thyroid supplements!), I’m looking forward to really focusing on my family and getting through all these shenanigans and recovering emotionally.
Stacking the Shelves
So can I just say that I have amazing friends? Seriously, these people are amazing. Andi, Chiara, and Veronica: I love you guys ❤
I may have mentioned a few weeks ago that I went on a few dates with this guy back in February/March, and I lent him my copy of Steelheart (note to self: make sure you’re SERIOUS with a dude before lending your babies). Well, as you can probably guess, it didn’t last, and he still has my copy. Soooo Veronica bought me a copy, and then just this last week as an early birthday gift, Chiara bought me a copy as well!
Kind of hilarious, because now I have two! But it just means that my friends know me so well! And honestly: best breakup (can you call it that after only 5 dates?) recovery EVER. Although truthfully it wasn’t that painful ’cause the dude didn’t like LOTR. That’s a cardinal sin in my house – all ya’ll can skedaddle if you don’t like those movies (I kid – there were other issues).
These were from Andi, and they couldn’t have arrived on a better day. Thursday was really hard for me, and then I get to the mail and this is waiting and it made me feel 10x better. I think I actually may have cuddled them. Ask the Passengers was one that Miranda had recommended, and The Beginning of Everything was one that I read and loved, but had borrowed it, so now I have my own copy! And it’s all shiny and hardback and I love it ❤
In other news…
I’m midway through my TFiOS reread. It’s even better the second time around, and I’m pretty sure I scared the lady at the froyo place because I kept smiling and laughing. But it’s also more painful, because I keep catching all these bits of foreshadowing. And then again it is pretty fun, because Veronica is rereading as well, and we keep sending each other quotes, trying to give each other feels. So all in all I’d say it’s better the second time around.
