My Life:

It’s been a crazy week! It was my birthday on Wednesday and so I celebrated by working half a day, grabbed a drink at the taproom with my boss and had dinner cooked for me by some friends. My parents got me a Fitbit flex! My aunt got me the two books, my BFF got me cool colored flex bands (pictures will be up when I get them).

I also got the chance to meet an author!!! I got to meet and greet with Peter S. Beagle the author of The Last Unicorn! There was a special screening at the local theater in town and it was just amazing! All the feels!!!!

This week I also did my first read-a-thon through Bout of Books. It’s been going well but geez it’s a lot to do! I wanted to read more but I feel like I will be falling short. I still have today and tomorrow left so I hope I can read more! Work has been a little slow this week so I’ve been working on projects that are further away then the immediate future. Other than that it’s been boring. :/ I am starting to job search now and I’ve found some good places it’s just applying to them that takes the most time.

What you missed this past week:

Coming up this week:

  • BOB Challenge #6 and Update
  • BOB Challenge #7 and Update
  • Review: Citadel of the Sky
  • Review: The Intergalactic Adventures of Queen Bea
  • Top Ten Tuesday: it’s a freebie so I get to choose my topic

I hope you all had a great week! I look forward to reading all about the books you got!
