Sunday Post: September 13, 2020

I kind of forgot that when I have to actually pay attention to the workshop and meeting that I had to be in today, that I couldn’t do any homework at the same time! And I almost forgot that some of my assignments are actually due by 6pm on Sundays, not midnight like it used to be.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news about the past week, reading recaps, new hauls, and more.

I may not have finished Legendborn while I’m currently typing this post (2:15pm on September 12th, for the record) but if my taking too long self does NOT finish Legendborn by the time this post goes live on my blog, I’m about to disown myself for taking too damn long. Not even freaking joking!

I am at 91% right now! It is getting so insane! I don’t understand what is taking so long for me to read it! Probably because I was just not wanting it to end? I don’t want to finish off this month? I don’t want to have to be an adult after the fact? Who freaking knows at this point, but I just need to finish this story because I need to know how it ends and somehow compose myself by the time I need to post for the tour, ya feel?

I also finally went back to my Netgalley list from way before I became super active in blogging again, and I found the audiobook for Fat Girl on a Plane by Kelly deVos in my library’s catalog! I was honestly so damn shocked because I swear that when I was initially looking for it, it wasn’t around and I couldn’t even buy it on Audible, so I was really glad that I was able to find it a couple of days ago.

And I WISH that I didn’t take so long to read it, because I’m enjoying this story so far! I’m glad I bought the book too a while ago because I knew that I wanted to read it and keep it, but I just kept putting it off. Yes, I know. I’m the absolute worst. But I’m now in the middle of it and I’m getting it done!

I don’t think I’ve bought a book in a month or so. It’s kind of throwing me off, but I needed a break from pre-ordering books because I was forgetting that I wasn’t going to get them for a while and then I got super sad that I couldn’t read it right away. Seriously, such a weird thing, how I would forget lol. But anyway, it’s always super fun when I don’t remember that I am waiting for a book and then magically something comes in the mail. It’s like Christmas every single day! Well, kind of. I know my husband kind of gets irritated that it seems like I get a package every single day… but you know what? It makes me happy so I’m not even going to say anything. He can just play his video games in peace lol. Yes I’m being salty! He hasn’t bought me a book in a hot minute!

I had my first meeting as the Tidewater Regional Representative at the Virginia National Organization for Women State Council Meeting yesterday. I forgot that was another position that I was tapped for, so let me just remember that I do have work for that one as well. It was a really great meeting, and I felt like everyone on the council was very welcoming to me and was ready to help me get prepared and involved for my position. I learned a lot of information and I’m really excited for the National Convention coming up soon. It’s also great to know that the leadership that is representing Virginia is very open to change and hearing from young women of color in trying to make a difference.

I have my first NULYP Advocacy Committee meeting tomorrow night, and I’ve been tapped to work on a National Voter Registration Week project that I’m currently working on. I got to talk with our Marketing team on my ideas to bring some awareness to the events we plan on holding within the next two weeks. I have a meeting for that planning today as well, but before my advocacy committee meeting.

I also already prepared my reports for my League of Women Voters Board Meeting next Saturday, so thank goodness I don’t have to worry about that this coming week. I just have to report on it since I already wrote it up and sent it to my fellow Board members. School and both jobs have been going well also! I feel busy sometimes, but I’ve been pretty much on top of everything that I need to be. I haven’t fallen behind on anything super important or much else, so that’s been great! I will say that I am still not happy about my calculus class, only because I am still psyching myself out about it. I finished one of the homework sections! But I still need to do the rest… and I want to make sure that I get it done before our first test.

Again, I’m tired. I’m always tired. But I’m happy, very very happy with everything that I continue to achieve and grow and improve.

And honestly since this week has been pretty busy with making sure everything is ready for next week’s board meeting at work, and making sure all of my work has been done for my own board meetings and committee meetings and stuff, I have no idea if I’ve really been listening to anything solid all week. Seriously, the weirdest thing right?

But I still have a playlist that I love, so I’ll share it here like usual.

And since Kipo has the sickest soundtrack that I’ve ever heard in my freaking life, here’s a song that I die listening to each damn time. I need this as my damn ringtone or something.

When I come through with the verse and the sound

And the hacks in the bis wanna box up my flow

But I don’t give a fuck I’m the shit and I know

Huh. I feel like I haven’t been watching anything this week either? I think I need to change that. Buuttttttt…

I’m pretty sure I watched something recently.

Oh yeah, I watched Resident Evil: Afterlife for like the million gazillionth time. Because Alice and Claire give me all the sapphic vibes. Can someone confirm if they are canonically sapphic or what?

And I just can’t deal.

Okay now I’m about to take some breaks from work and just dance for a little bit. Possibly get the hubs to get me a milkshake again. This is why I’m hella thicc but we’re okay with that. Cookies & Cream milkshakes are the bomb. We can’t deny it, fam.

Also look at that leg strength that Megan has in that gif omgggggg.

Anyway, stay thirsty friends!

    1. Dini oh gosh I feel like you definitely should be tired! You moved and had to get everything together and you have so much on your plate! It only makes sense. I hope that you’re able to get some rest soon because you definitely need the rest ❤

      I miss you so much and trust me, you are one of my inspirations as well!
