Sunday Post: November 8, 2020

I think the coolest thing that happened this weekend was finding out that Kamala Harris is going to be our new Vice President. Our first woman Vice President, who is also a Black and Indian woman! How freaking amazing is that? Nothing’s impossible now.

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.

Uh… well I’m still working on that ARC? Oops. I think this is the first time that I haven’t been switching between ARCs so that’s interesting for me. I’m hoping I can finish it by today though, so I can start the other one because I’d rather read that one and finish it before Thanksgiving. I really, really need to finish it way before Thanksgiving anyway.

Slowly and surely catching up though, while also trying to make sure that I’m not overloading myself with reading too much. You know how it goes… getting into reading slumps when reading is your favorite thing in the world is the absolute worst thing ever. I definitely don’t like getting in reading slumps.

A new month means a new Ready Reads bundle! I was finally able to pick it up from my local library yesterday and they did a really good job with picking some books that I know that I will like. But it’s also crazy that I hadn’t read ANY of them! So it sucks that this will be the first time that I would have read any of them.

I also got some other library books too, like I have some time to read all of them…. but you know? I like to borrow all the books and then try to read them in a short amount of time. You know.

A couple of subscription box books came in as well, and I’m curious to see how those books turn out too! I’ll have to find time to read them all somehow. Are you reading any of these this month? Buddy read, anyone?

I like how I put it in a checklist format when we know that I haven’t checked off any of the books from last week. We aren’t gonna talk about that though.

I’m getting sick! The coughing is getting worse and yet my doctor won’t let me get tested for COVID-19. It doesn’t seem seriously to her, and I’ll trust her since apparently the fact that I haven’t lost my sense of taste is a good sign. I’ll take her word for it for now, but I have been feeling like crap for a long time now and I’m not feeling it. Head still hurts, the coughing is getting worse like I said, and my chest is hurting again. I’ve been having issues with my appetite, like I want to eat, but then when I do eat something I don’t want to eat it and then I still feel like shit… it’s just really weird. I don’t know. I’m all kinds of messed up clearly.

I’m happy that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election, and I know that we have so much more work to do now and this is just the beginning but at least we won this battle.

The rest of the crap I’m dealing with, I’ll just suppress it like I’m not supposed to.

I don’t remember listening to anything again this week either. My head has been killing me as usual, and I think I’ve been just binge watching shows when I need to take a chill pill.

In other words though, I think I’ve been digging this one song a lot:

Where my crown, I’m the Queen of The South

So like I was saying, I’ve been binge watching shows. I had to take a break from Elementary because I was about to hit the end again, and I can’t have this show end… I just can’t! Holmes and Watson are my fave and I just do not want that show to end. I will legit rewatch the show over and over lol.

So when I need to laugh a bit, I’ll watch me some Baby Daddy.

And since I don’t remember ever finishing Fringe, I’ve been watching that as well.

And if you’ve watched both Fringe and Elementary, you may have noticed that John Noble is in both… Walter Bishop in Fringe, and Morland Holmes in Elementary (Sherlock’s dad if you didn’t recognize the name).

Cool, huh?

***ignore the words, just look at Sherlock’s face lol***

Put some respect on her name!

I think this was one of the best things to happen in 2020. If there’s one thing to draw joy from, it would be this. That’s it really.

And can I just say that I want to be like Kamala when I grow up?

And who knew that I would find super nice business suits from freaking Fashion Nova though? The red one… this blue one… I have a pink one and a beige one coming in…. I’m happy. I’ll eventually get more not from Fashion Nova so they can actually close but ya know, at least I have some again.

  1. Yes!!! So happy Biden and Harris won! I was a mess all week waiting for the results. I hope you get better soon. Maybe it’s a bad viral infection? My friend had to take the COVID test 5 times already because she’s been exposed to it from various people, even from her mom who was positive. Thank goodness my friend came out negative all 5 times. Do you have a fever at all? I think if you have a fever or were directly exposed, they would have you get tested. Get better soon – sending healing vibes your way! 😘

    1. Oh my gosh, right??? That was the worst anxiety I’ve ever had honestly, just waiting and waiting and waiting to hear what the heck would happen. I honestly was not happy with how close the results were and that’s what scared me a lot. That was way too close for comfort and honestly I wasn’t going to be surprised if it went the other way, but I would have been really disappointed.

      I think it may be. Every time I ended up going to the doctor, they would say I’d have some sort of lung infection or something like that so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was that again. Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry that your friend had to take the test 5 whole times! I’m so scared to take the test because when my mom took it, she was in pain for like a whole 30 minutes. I think they did it wrong or something. I’m glad your friend was negative all 5 times though.

      No fever thank goodness, and I haven’t been exposed to anyone with COVID (that I know of, anyway), so that’s why my doctor won’t let me take the test, or at least says I don’t have to take it.

      Thanks so much, Yolanda ❤ You're so sweet and I appreciate your healing vibes! I hope I can get some rest and feel better soon.

      1. My birthday was the day after the election and I spent it glued to CNN and MSNBC haha – talk about a memorable birthday. But I think I need a massage from my body being so tight with anxiety. I think my friend said her 2nd test was uncomfortable, because they let that swab sit in her nose for awhile! But yes please get lots of rest and get well soon!


    1. Thank you! I have to give credit to the gif gods! I wish I was talented enough to make my own gifs but alas, I am not. They do such a great job though! I remember being on Tumblr and seeing all the people that would make gif packs for different celebrities and they just did amazing work.

      Kamala really is such a huge inspiration and I can’t wait to see how she does as VP!

      Thanks so much, Lisa ❤ I hope I feel better soon as well.
