I’ve been feeling a little bit overwhelmed this week as school started on Monday. It always takes me a couple of weeks to get the hang of my new schedule. I’ve changed my classes around a couple times this week too so everything has been in flux, which hasn’t helped with my anxiety.
I’ve also been getting over an infection so I’ve been feeling sick from the infection and gross from the antibiotics. Thankfully, I took my last antibiotic on Friday morning and I’m starting to slowly feel better.
I haven’t blogged much because of school and I’ve missed it, which is a good sign. I’ve been visiting and commenting on blogs, though, which I enjoy doing.
I’m currently reading HOW TO: ABSURD SCIENTIFIC ADVICE FOR COMMON REAL-WORLD PROBLEMS. It’s hilarious. I love it. I also love that everything I learned in my physics class last semester is showing up in this book.
I’m going to start reading PRINCE CASPIAN today. It’s due back to the library in a week and I want to make sure I get it read before I have to return it.
I watched Cruella on Disney+ with Corey this week and I’ve been listening to “The Baroque Ball” ever since. I love it. I want to know who sings it, but I can’t find it online. It’s only associated with the composer of the Cruella score, Nicholas Britell, and he definitely doesn’t sing it.
I discovered a couple new shows this week as I was sitting brain dead after school. The first show I found was a new cooking competition with Gordon Ramsay. I Gordon Ramsay. It’s called The Next Level Chef. It’s like a combination of Masterchef and Cutthroat Kitchen, if you’ve ever seen either one of those.
The second show I discovered is called That’s My Jam. It’s a game show hosted by Jimmy Fallon. It’s a music game show with celebrities and they try to earn points so they can win money for charity. It’s a lot of fun. My favorite so far has been episode two. It had Josh Groban who had to sing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” switching from a baritone to a high voice in the middle of the song and Joseph Gordon-Leavitt who had to sing a pop song as a member of The Cure. It was hilarious.
I joined Book of the Month for only $5 because a friend had a referral link. She got a free credit and I saved $10. Everybody wins. I’m excited to get my first book in a few days.
Book of the Month seems like an awesome book subscription. You get to choose between five books. If you don’t like any of those books, you can choose a past book. If you’re behind on your reading, you can put the subscription on hold and not be charged the months you’re on hold. And, the only thing that comes in each box is a book. You don’t have to worry about having a ton of book swag cluttering up your house.

I want a cobb salad from Chick-Fil-A, but Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays in my neck of the woods.
I need everyone at the school to wear a mask so I won’t get COVID. I’m triple vaxxed and I wear a mask, but I’m afraid that I’m going to get COVID because of someone who doesn’t take the pandemic seriously. Hardly anyone wears a mask in Utah and the COVID numbers are rising because of the Omicron Persei 8* variant (*Omicron Persei 8 is a Futurama reference, so I had to tack on the Persei 8 for funsies).
I talk to my therapist about my anxiety and fear and he says, it’s understandable AND all I can do is cope ahead by doing everything I can do to protect myself, which I’ve done and continue to do. Le sigh.
At least the school mandated everyone be vaccinated before they could register for this semester. I just wonder how many people fudged their info.
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
