Good morning ya’ll!
I’m 27 now! And as usual, I don’t feel 27… I feel maybe 22? 23? And Gabby is 2! I can’t believe we’ve had her for almost 2 whole years now (we got her in May, she was born at the end of Feb). She is the best and I love her. You know what I didn’t see coming for me at 27? Being a person who owns three different shirts with cats on them. This is what Gabby has done to me. And I don’t even own any bookish shirts! Which is a travesty and clearly needs to be remedied sometime soon.
I have the next four days off, since it’s my birthday and all. I managed to put 34 hours into the three days I worked this week, which wore me out but was also a good thing. I finished these major reports I had to get done by the end of the month, and next week should be normal 10-hour days, and we might have a temp soon! So things are looking up.
Working my ass off meant that ALL I wanted to do for my birthday was stay home and read. Which is exactly what I’m doing. I’ve already finished The Martian (I had like 120 pages left in it), and that was awesome. And now I’m taking a break to write this (obvs), and then I’ll probably sit down and devour all of the new graphic novels I have, because I’m super excited about those. And later I MIGHT actually leave the house to acquire some sort of food… haven’t decided what yet. I love this day so hard.
And of course, if you’re around today, I’ll be on Twitter and Instagram allllll day with the #bdayreadathon hashtag. You’ll get sick of me, I swear.
So, today is all about reading. Tomorrow is all about BLOGGING. I have about 200 posts in Bloglovin to sort through, read, and comment on. I have two book reviews to write, and some graphic novel mini-review posts to write, and I should probably try to get ahead and schedule some Top Ten Tuesday posts or something.
I really want to say thanks to all of you for still sticking with me while this whole switching-jobs thing is going on. I feel like a dick when I only hop online to write a quick Sarah Sunday post and comment on a few blogs, but you know. Time is short at the moment. I really hope it’ll calm down in the next 5-6 weeks and I’ll be able to get back into a routine with blogging, tweeting, and basically just being actively social with ya’ll.
Leave a comment telling me all about how you like to celebrate YOUR birthday. OR, (because Laura made me think about this), tell me what famous people you share your birthday with! I apparently share a birthday with John Steinbeck & Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The honeyman WINS though, because he shares a birthday with J.K. Rowling. You don’t get cooler than that. But yeah, talk about either of those 2 things and this Sunday I’ll randomly pick a winner for a $20 Amazon giftcard. Open internationally, of course, as long as your country has a version of Amazon… do they all now? I don’t even know. If not, then we’ll arrange something via The Book Depository.
I adore you all. Thanks for reading and blogging with me today. You rock.
