I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This past week was yet another week that I suffered from low energy. Normally I’m not too bummed about it, but Morning Star was released on Tuesday, and I wanted to devour it. Sadly, it took me longer than I anticipated since I kept passing out asleep. On the bright side, I got to savor the book more than I otherwise might have. In a few words: It was fantastic! I’m still processing, but hope to get my review written soon.
Work was just blah, but I had a really nice Friday celebrating Valentine’s Day with my students. Several of them got me some really nice gifts. Not only did I have a nice Friday at work, but as I left it was to enjoy my three-day weekend. Yahoo! I ended the day by going to see Deadpool with my cousin. It was everything I hoped for and more. Though I was weirded out by the number of children dropped off at the movies to see it. Maybe the parents don’t care about all of the nudity, profanity, sex, and violence, but I choose to think they’re just ignorant of the film’s content. Must not have read the comics. Any who, two thumbs up!
Saturday I got my hair done, and feel human despite the cold I’m coming down with. It feels so nice to have it all trimmed up 🙂 Afterwards, I decided to get another piercing, and wound up getting two. Oops! I got my tragus pierced, and my lower conch. They’re both on the same ear, so healing them up should be simple. *fingers crossed*. Aside from that, my only other highlight was picking up Crimson Peak and Spectre. Both were very good films, and kept me company while I convalesced.
