I have watched nothing!

TV Shows

I did watch Game of Thrones and I enjoyed the episode. It was good. I loved the final F you at the end. And the speech between Dany and Jon was great, imo.

Writing

Yeah. Nothing.


Blogging

I got all my posts up except for a Saturday review. I finished Of Fire and Stars on Friday and I didn’t want to write a review Saturday. So I didn’t. Maybe I’ll write one today and get it up this Saturday. Let me know if you want to see that. It’ll be completely spoiler-free.

Weekly Goals July 30-Aug 5

Hi guys!

tumblr_os74qycIG11tsfx8ro6_400

I love Doctor Who gifs. That is all.


Alright, so my birthday is on the 31st of July and I will finally be 22. I don’t plan on doing anything for my birthday, though. I work the night before and the night of so…


Books

  • This week Readathin starts! I’m so excited. Go check out my announcement post if you missed it here. Also, Unhaulathon starts. So I’m going to get right into Blindsided right on the first. I’d like to finish Frostbite before that (I’m writing this on the 28th so I may be done with it by the time this goes up).
  • I have decided to put myself on a book buying ban at least for August and September but the goal is for the rest of the year. The only books I will allow myself to buy are the books for Java and the Librarians and the Random Book Monthly Book Club. Unless I end up doing this next goal.
  • I would like to get a library card to my local library. I’m going to blame my anxiety for the reasoning why I haven’t gotten a library card. My mom was bad about getting us cards, letting us take out books, then forgetting to bring us to bring them back. So I always get anxious at libraries that they’ll find out and charge me an outrageous amount. But now that my name has changed, maybe I have nothing to worry about. I know I’m irrational.
  • Back to actual reading goals, I want to finish Blindsided and get into the next book. Seriously, though. If you want to buddy read any of the books I will be reading, please do it with me. I need the motivation to actually read these books. My TBR will be up tomorrow, so get back to me!
  • I will continue to do hauls every month, but they will mainly only be ARCs and free eBooks.

Kdramas

  • Once again, I’m going to finish Strong Woman, Do Bong Soon.
  • I would like to get started on another Kdrama (send your recs!) but I don’t plan on finishing 2 this week.

TV Shows

  • Again, Game of Thrones this week. I would like to give a bit more in depth review, but I don’t want to spoil anything so I think I’ll just stick with how I had my weekly wrap up this time around.
  • I want to get through at least half of season 9 of Doctor Who. I definitely don’t have a problem watching those while I blog. I think that’s how I’ll start watching TV Shows (not Kdramas) for now instead of music. Maybe I’ll finally get through Gilmore Girls and Legends of Tomorrow

Work

  • I still want to get better about working harder. I need to be proud of the work I do even though it’s for a job that I don’t enjoy.
  • I want to give Barnes and Noble a call to let them know I put in an application. But I’ve never had to call a job for this and I’m super nervous and I don’t know what I’m going to do or say.

School

  • I’m going to get that Financial Aid taken care of before my advisor calls me for the second time about it.
  • I’m also going to keep checking back about the books I’m going to need for my class.

Writing

  • I will get on a schedule. Even if I just write for 10-15 minutes. I need to find time to do it.
  • I want to at least get the first draft of this short story done. My husband told me to write him a story so he could draw a comic along with it. So I’m going to do that. It’s just hard because we have different styles. I’d be a romance writer and he would be more action/fantasy.

Blog

Here’s this week’s schedule (let me know if you like seeing this):

  • Sunday (today): Weekly Goals July 30-August 5
  • Monday: Unhaulathon TBR
  • Tuesday: Wonder Woman Book Tag
  • Wednesday: Tome Topple TBR
  • Thursday: New Releases Aug 6-12
  • Friday: July Wrap Up
  • Saturday: *Undetemined* Review

What are your goals for this week?

I hope you enjoyed this post. Get back to me if you want to buddy read any of the books on my TBR this month or any of my TBRs for the readathons coming up (check my weekly goals posts to know when my TBR will be going up).


Happy Reading, Writing, Watching!

Weekly Wrap Up 24-28

I’m going to do this a day early just because I don’t forsee me doing much today. So I’m writing this on the 28th.

You can go check out my full post here, but I’m going to go through and say what I’ve completed from each goal then what I did outside of that. Then I’ll finish up with what I didn’t end up doing.

TV Shows

  • I did end up watching some Doctor Who. I realized that I’d seen most of season 8 so I only had to watch the few episodes I hadn’t seen or I didn’t remember. I’m now on season 9.
  • I also watched this past week’s episode of Game of Thrones and loved it. My only problem is that I feel like it ended abruptly. Like, I was watching it and suddenly it was the credits. It was a finished scene, but I feel like the episode flew by. There was plenty of action, in my opinion. I don’t know what happened to make it seem so short.

Books

  • I finshed reading A List of Cages and absolutely adored it.
  • I didn’t finish the ARC I was reading but I need to check back because I believe that it’s a book that was released last August not this upcoming one.
  • I started reading Frostbite but only got to chapter 2. It definitely started out with action and I love that.

Blog

All of my posts went up and went up on time. The only thing different was that I won’t be doing my weekly wrap up Sunday, it’s obviously up now.

I’ll be writing a spoiler-free review for A List of Cages and that should be going up tomorrow.

Schooling

  • I started to take care of my financial aid. There’s still some stuff I need to do.
  • I took a look at what I needed for schooling but I haven’t purchased anything because what I saw was a textbook and it wasn’t my official book list so I didn’t want to get the wrong thing. I’ll look back at a later date.

Work

  • I didn’t end up feeling any better about my work this week. If anything, I feel worse because of today and yesterday. Yesterday, I didn’t completely finish everything I needed to. I got the important parts done but not everything I was supposed to do. It was a larger amount of work and I was working alone (usually with this amount there’s two people doing it) so I’m not too worried. But it does get to me when I don’t finish my work, no matter the amount.
  • I did a thing. I ended up applying for a part time job. And that job would be at Barnes and Noble. It’s been a life long dream of mine to work at a bookstore and this would be my chance.

Writing

  • Nope. Just nope. I have not written a thing this week. No schedule. Nothing. I’m working on getting my sleep schedule on track before I try to add in time for writing.

How did you do for your weekly goals?

Stay tuned for Sunday for next week’s goals.


 Happy Reading, Writing, Watching!

Weekly Plans: July 24-29

To start out, I would like to point out that I may switch these to Sunday posts. Or I’ll keep them as Monday. Either way, I’m hoping to stick with these. Would you guys like to see weekly wrap ups? I think I’ll try it out for August and see how it goes. I’ll make it more than just books, though. I’m hoping to get around to watching more stuff. And I’m going to be starting my Bachelor’s degree in Sept, so I will be wrapping up that also.


Let’s organize this by different categories.

K-Dramas:

  • Finish Strong Woman, Do Bong Soon. I’m on episode 12 of 16. So I don’t have too much more to watch.

TV Shows

  • I would like to watch this week’s episode of Game of Thrones and include a little spoiler-free review on my weekly wrap up.
  • I would like to start watching Doctor Who again. I’m on episode 3 of season 8 and I want to catch up by December.

Books

  • I would like to finish the ARC I started, Hard Play by Lisa Renee Jones.
  • I also want to finish two more books: Frostbite by Richelle Mead and A List of Cages by Robin Roe.

Blog

Here’s a list of what you’ll be seeing from me this week! I decided to start posting on Sundays, also. Saturdays will be my iffy days. I hope to get reviews up weekly but that all depends on what I’m reading and if I feel like reviewing the books.

  • Mon: August/Read-a-thin TBR; Weekly Plans
  • Tues: Tag Tuesday: OMG! This Song! Book Tag
  • Wed: Top 5 Wednesday: Series That Got Better
  • Thurs: New Releases
  • Fri: Highly Anticipated Books I Own
  • Sat: Book Review
  • Sun: Weekly Wrap Up; Weekly Plans
  • I also need to plan out next month’s posts, so let me know what you guys want to see!

Schooling

  • I’m hoping to figure out my financial aid
  • Also, I would like to get a general idea of what books I’m going to need in Sept.

Work

I feel like recently with work I’ve been doing worse than I did when I was 9 months pregnant with my son. I don’t know what has happened to me, but I would like to change that and get back to working as hard as I did prior to having my boy.

Writing

  • Come up with a schedule that works so you have time to write
  • Start working on a short story

What are your goals this week?


Happy Reading, Writing, Watching!
