The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news and recap what happened over the past week.
Sunday, march 7th 2021. It’s been a while since I did one of these, but now that I’ll be less active blogging and with less free time, I figured a recap now and then would make me feel a it lighter at the end of the week.
I started my curricular internship this week. For those of you unaware, I’m currently in the final stretch of a master’s degree in Publishing. This 3-month internship at a small publishing company, and the consequent report, will be my final project (or term paper). I was told I can work whatever schedule I want as long as the tasks get done, but I’m working 9-5 for now while I still have the energy and good mental health days. (*I’ll also be working remotely for the whole 3 months). My tasks so far have been some text editing and some maintenance of book information on their online catalogue so far.
So my energy levels are a bit low, and the motivation to do certain things is nonexistent… That does include reading and writing reviews, sadly (though I’m doing great at super mario odyssey).
But I love that I’m also feeling academically (and somewhat professionally) fulfilled, as well as productive. (Last year, when the first quarantine started, I was obsessed with being productive. It was a way to keep myself busy, and thinking of better things… But now, I’ve given up on the desire to be productive for those reasons. I’ll get shit done but at the end of the day, my mental health is a priority and the last couple of months have been tiring…) My goals for next week are to find a way to manage my time better, and try to stick to a (good, 8hr) sleep schedule.
Random fun facts from this week: I finally got to see my grandmas after a month or two of lockdown! Though we are still in lockdown (just over 50 days now uggh). And I suddenly decided to cut half my hair one day… It looks great!
Also, I watched a lot of tv this week because it’s my go-to hobbie when I’m feeling tired, but so much of it was shitty and not worth mentioning…
Wandavision (2021) and Raya and The Last Dragon (2021) are both so great and so much better than what I was expecting!? Though, both were far too short, I want more! (if anyone wants to discuss the finale of wandavision I’m all here for it, I’ve got so many THOUGHTS!) The Craft Legacy looked so cool, but it was of a bit of a disappointment (still kinda fun tho).
I read 2 books this week. No Game No Life light novel vol. 10 by Yuu Kamiya and Covet by Tracy Wolff, a book I was legit dying to read, and I’m happy to say it did not disappoint! (and it’s 862 pages long, what a beast!)
Next week, I’m going to be reading 2 middle grade fantasy books: Bridge of Souls by Victoria Schwab (buddy reading with a friend) and The Dangerous Gift by Tui T. Sutherland (wings of fire #14). Though I’m also hoping to finish my current reads and maybe start rereading King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo.
Overall, I had a pretty great first week of March and that’s all I can ask for, really.
How are you doing? What was your favorite things this week?
