I think the universe has tried to hit me with a bus this week. I think it succeeded.
Life Beyond the Blog
It’ll be okay eventually, but right now, I think life just kind of ran me over with a bus and then threw it in reverse for another pass. The big program I applied to and got assurances I would get into ended up rejecting me, which was pretty crushing, and I also got sick this week as well, and there’s nothing like both of those things to take the wind out of your sails. Not my finest week by any means, and I definitely feel like I’m stuck in a funk.
On the plus side, the earlier part of the week wasn’t awful. I did reconnect with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time, and I had some time to play Breath of the Wild with my roommate, who hadn’t played it until this previous weekend. AND I finished an ARC (though I need to finish writing up the review so I can submit it). Life’s not all bad. It’s just some bad stuff slammed me at once. It happens, I guess.

The Week Ahead
Well, for one, I’m hoping for a more pleasant week! It is going to be a busier one. I have to prep two different presentations for school (wish me luck; presentations are scary), and I’m aiming to finish reading one or both of the remaining ARCs I’m sitting on from NetGalley. I also want to try and start my NaNoWriMo planning if I can, but I’ll honestly settle for just PICKING AN IDEA because I’m way too good at “look at these forty shiny new ideas!” and not very good at “I’m only going to pick one shiny new idea,” which can cause some problems, whoops.
I hope you’ve had a good week, and that the week ahead is just as kind to you!
