Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts

Posted 7 November, 2018 by Lianne in Miscellaneous / 1 Comment

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they’ve encountered during the week, etc.).

  1. Since returning from Reading Week last month it’s been boom-boom-boom with school and midterms and papers due. I don’t remember it being THAT hectic, WTF? It was an endless carousel, so sleep was buh-bye for me and of course, silly me, I still picked up a few additional shifts at work. Talk about trying to run myself to the ground #facepalm
  2. I want to say I have a reprieve this week/sort of next week but actually I don’t: I have a presentation and head-to-toe assessment to prep for, a paper to start, and boom! Final exams x_x Thankfully this semester went by fairly quickly…
  3. My coworkers are such a joy though in how supportive they are with me back in school and all <3
  4. But yeah, I don’t know if it’s a mix of the current patient population on my unit or my busy-ness with school and work but the last few shifts I had were absolutely tiring. Actually had a bit of a scare last week as I thought I had pulled a muscle somewhere from transferring or assisting a patient with care. The stuff of nightmares; I was so happy I was off the following days after (even if I was working on a paper), give my body a break from that kind of physical exertion. Happy to report I’m okay now *thumbs up*
  5. I wish I was going away on a short vacation after exams are done but I can’t. It’s okay, I am eyeing Reading Week in February…
  6. Books I’m currently reading: started Noam Chomsky’s Necessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies, seemed like a timely read. I also sort of started reading Sarah Beth Durst’s The Reluctant Queen as I did finish the previous book, The Queen of Blood, last week. Nothing else at this time as I still have a stretch to study for with school (watch me change my in depending on my mood).
  7. Yet despite of all of this busy-ness, I bought a ton of books recently. Anna Burns’ Milkman, Brandon Sanderson’s Oathbringer, Thea Lim’s An Ocean of Minutes…Can’t wait until my Christmas holidays so I can start reading it all 😀
  8. I know it’s super early but I want to start filling out Christmas cards 😀
  9. My new favourite account right now: @effinbirds (Twitter // Instagram)
  10. I just caught up reading the news for today (Wednesday): what the hell–? (namely the press conference and Jim Acosta’s White House pass being revoked)

And that’s it from me! How have you been?
