Dude, screw this week. Actually, screw April, I’m kind of done with it already. Can we move on to May now?
Three things just made me kind of a mess this week: (1) Tuesday was the 1-year anniversary of my grandma dying, so that was bumming me out. (2) It’s been that lady-time o’ the month for me, which normally doesn’t really affect me much but for some reason this time I was all about wanting chocolate and tearing up at stupid things. I’m not kidding, I literally started crying at the bromance at the end of 21 Jump Street. (3) And the weather has been RIDICULOUSLY GLOOMY all goddamn week. Seriously, it’s been constant clouds, rain, wind and I’m just so sick of it, ya know?
OK whining over now.
Not much happened this week, except I got to hang out with the honeyman a lot (he took Tuesday off to be there for me, cause he’s the sweetest like that). I went shopping for a friend’s birthday next week. I’ve decided I’m going to get a second job again, except I can’t think of anywhere I want to work besides the library or the local Barnes and Noble, soooo… hopefully they’re hiring. I’m hoping to go inquire at those places this week, but this week is also looking a bit busy, so we’ll see how that goes. I only worked out twice this week, which sucked. One of my legs hurt this week so running was a real pain and I decided to just give it a rest until Monday.
This coming week I have four days off, which is nice. One of those days is going to be celebrating my friend’s birthday, and one of those days will be spent bringing out my warmer weather clothes and putting away winter clothes, and next Saturday I’m doing a 5K Color Vibe run with the honeyman and my sister, except not really cause kids are doing it too so it’ll be more like a 5K walk that I paid $90 to join in on. I’m sure it’ll be fun, buy my god I hope the weather has cleared up by then.
We’re having a lazy date night tonight, which I’m totally looking forward to. I’m making baked ziti (with ground turkey, yum), and we’re going to hang out in our PJ’s and eat and watch Archer and maybe play some Black Ops 2, because it’s a Double XP weekend so why the hell not.
Bookish update: I finished 3 books this week – HP #5 (of course), The Wednesday Letters by Jason F. Wright, and Much Ado About Nothing by Shakespeare. I started The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides, but I DNF-ed it after about 130 pages. I started reading Nexus by Ramez Naam, and I’m not sure what I think about it yet. It’s interesting, but at the same time it’s a bit slow. I’m going to try to keep reading that today, and I’m thinking I might also start The Disaster Diaries by Sam Sheridan.
I’ve been feeling very okay about DNF-ing books lately. Normally I prefer to stick it out and finish a book, but I just haven’t had the patience for it lately. I don’t want to make myself read something that I really don’t want to be reading anymore because then it takes me forever to finish it and I could’ve used all that time to be reading something much better. Also, in a way it’s helping me get rid of books that I’ve had on my shelves forever – The Marriage Plot was sitting on my shelf for probably at least a year, but I know now that I have no interest in finishing it, so it’s getting donated. So yay for that.
Alright, I’m off. Hope everyone’s having a good weekend!!!
