Hey friends, welcome to The Sunday Post – a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer to share all the weekly news and feels!
I hope you’ve all had a great week and, if not, then it’s okay because the week is almost over and a new one is about to begin!
1st week of university + big changes
This week has been absolutely slammed for me. You may have noticed that I didn’t end up posting much content here, that’s because it was my first week of my MRes at uni. It’s been really fun so far and I was really proud of myself for managing to do 3 x full days (10am-6pm) plus lots of other things on top of that. One of these things was a meeting with my employers on Tuesday afternoon where I let them know that I will be resigning from my job. Unfortunately, something pretty big happened last month and in the end, I decided that it was best if I stepped away.
That means that from now on I will actually have my weekends back which I’m really excited about! It does put a bit of financial pressure on us as I will no longer be receiving my income but I will be receiving (more *sobs*) student loan which will tide me over for a little bit and I can start looking for something more suitable in a few months time once I’ve had a break.
As I’ve been so busy and been struggling to coordinate all my social/academic/blog activities, I’m going to sit down later today and actually make myself a proper plan to organize my time more effectively. Although it’s been a whirlwind of a week, it’s been fun to go back to education and I’m happier now than I’ve been for the entire year!
Books, Books, Books
Usually, I don’t read more than one book at a time but this week I’ve had to mix it up a little bit as I’m still stuck on Defy the Worlds. Rather than keep slogging through it and falling into a reading slump, I’ve started two of my Black History Month (UK) reads, both of which I’m really enjoying.
- I’m in the process of editing my article for SideQuest which I spoke about last week – hopefully it’ll be up on the website soon!
- This week has been COLD. It has been a week filled with snuggly jumpers, many blankets, and hot drinks. How is the weather where you are?
- I posted up two posts this week. One was my October TBR (yes, I’ve had to bring the TBR back!) and the other was finally doing a new State of the ARC where I talk about all of the ARCs I’ve managed to accumulate and how I’m drowning a bit in them.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks edition of The Sunday Post.
Please drop me a comment and let me know what you’ve been up to this week so we can catch up ❤
