Update: Life and Books (2/11/18)

So I've been doing some more Netflix watching. I watched two random gymnastics movies I found. The first was awful, the second was alright. I also watched The Road to El Dorado. It was cute! Also more inappropriate than I thought a kid's movie would be. I'm also up to Season 2 of Peaky Blinders. I'm dealing with eye strain at the moment though, so I've had to take it easy with...
 

Update: Life and Books (1/28/18)

Good news! The great bookish year continues! Also, my wi-fi started working again, but then it acted up today (Saturday), but now it's working again, so hopefully it'll just keep working right. I also have Netflix now thanks to my grandparents! I watched Zootopia and Finding Dory. Both were cute, and Baby Dory was the cutest thing I've ever seen!!! Not much to report other than that....
 

Update: Life and Books (1/14/18)

I haven't posted one of these update posts since the 31st, so of course I have to say, it's a new year! And a new year has brought with it a new post title! Yep, I switched from "The Weekly Update" to "Life and Books" since these posts aren't weekly anymore. I'm trying out the new title, seeing how I like it. Anyway, I am having the most amazing start to my bookish year! (If only my real life...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/31/17

I guess I'll state the obvious: It's the last day of 2017! I think we can all concur that this year in general has been a mess. And it seems lots of people have had individually bad years as well. It hasn't been my best year, but, honestly, none of the past few years have. So... that's why I want to use this post to talk about some of the positive things that I've done or that have happened to...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/10/17

It's December! Not sure why I felt the need to announce that, but I did. I haven't really had the best two weeks since my last update post though. I went to an appointment with an acupuncturist/herbalist who said she could help me with just herbs/diet, no acu. You may have seen my tweet about how that went. $75 for her to tell me to exercise, get out of the house more often, and get more fresh...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/26/17

I've kind of been in a mood lately. I haven't been feeling great, I'm so stressed about so many things, I'm anxious about other things, and now this Net Neutrality issue is making everything worse. I mean, what's going to happen to our whole book blogging community if it gets repealed? (I know that's not the only thing that would be affected, but the list of things and people that would be...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/12/17

I'm gonna make this short because chronic illness, tennis elbow, and stress have me not sure if I'm really feeling up to making the Sunday Post rounds, but I'm trying to stick to my every-other-week posting schedule for these. Anyway, basically all that happened in the past two weeks was that I was hit on by someone with a foot fetish on Twitter when I posted about needing new slippers, I...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/29/17 + My Sims Dancing Like No One is Watching

Let's see, what happened in the past two weeks... Well, I caved and installed The Sims 3 onto my current computer (I was playing it on my slow, noisy, half-broken laptop before, but now I'm using my grandma's old desktop), which means I'll now just end up wasting even more time playing since it runs better and all I have to do is click a button instead of hooking up my monitor to the other...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/15/17

I had so much stuff to tell you all last week, and this week I have pretty much nothing. I'm perfectly ok with that though because it means at least nothing bad happened! But oh, I did randomly get hooked on cooking shows? I've never liked them before, but I swear I spent one whole day just marathoning an entire season of some Halloween bake-off show, and I'm also really loving this one that's...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/1/17

I need a new name for these posts since they don't seem to happening weekly anymore. This time it's not entirely my fault though. I was going to start doing them every other week, and then freaking Hurricane Irma showed up and screwed up everything. My family and our houses were all fine since the hurricane ended up not hitting any of us directly, but I lost power for nine and a half days, then I...
