Our Lives This Week
I have to admit, this has been a pretty good week for me! I finished all my assessments – YAY!!!! All that is left is an exam in a couple of weeks and then dissertation, dissertation, dissertation all summer long. But the fact that I finished all my assessments, and turned each one in early because I managed my time responsibly, feels amazing and I’m pretty damn proud of myself.
I spent Monday at Orion working in their publicity department. They needed someone last minute and I agreed to come in just for the day. It was a fun day filled with writing press releases, looking up bloggers and reviews, and making showcards. I might just have to visit them again someday in the future!
I met two of my favorite bloggers on Tuesday: Rinn from Rinn Reads and Kristy from Book Nerd Reviews. Both were at the Glamour event, along with Daphne from Winged Reviews. Even though the event cost £20, it was still an amazing time. It was lovely hearing both Laini Taylor and Lauren Owen talk about their books and writing processes, and getting them to sign my books. We also got goodie bags!
So yeah, overall, a successful week for me! It’s actually quite refreshing to just sort of… feel good about everything. I hope this sticks around for a bit!
This past week was probably one of the worst I’ve had in a long time — emotional meltdowns, stress eating me alive. Thank goodness I have an incredibly caring and understanding boss, friends who are always there for me, an amazing husband, and a squishy cat.
I also got a new phone, right in the nick of time, it appears, so I’ve been having fun testing out the camera and trying to find apps that do what I want them to do. Yay~. But even cooler? I finally got my HOT PINK Gaming’s Feminist Illuminati t-shirt and submitted my selfie to the tumblr! I’m also trying to settle a debate with a co-worker, so any help on this tweet would be appreciated!
