Sunday News #10

Sunday Post and Sunday Salon are blog news memes hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer and Reader Buzz, respectively. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and other things.

I’m feeling hopeful. Friday was the worst day I had with this stomach bug, but then I felt almost normal yesterday. I’m hoping I’m over the worst of it now and I can get on with my life and start enjoying life again. I’m still going to take it easy and only eat soup so I don’t cause more upset to my digestive tract.


This week on the blog:


I finished reading NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by Liane Moriarty yesterday. I’ll be posting my review tomorrow. I’ll be starting FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell today. Hopefully, I can read it quickly because I also want to finish THE SILVER CHAIR by CS Lewis, the next installment of the Narniad for the Narniathon21, this week.


I’ve been listening to some of my favorite K-pop songs. I’m a very casual K-pop listener. My friend Suey (It’s All About Books) introduced me to K-pop and K-dramas like seven or eight years ago. I haven’t watched a K-drama since 2016, though. I like the dramas; I’d just rather spend my time watching shows with Corey and he’s not interested in K-dramas at all.

Anyway, the K-pop songs I listen to are the original songs I put on my list back in 2015-2016. I’ve been told by other K-poppers that it’s the old stuff. Even if my playlist is old, I still like it a lot. Suey helps me add new music every now and then through her blog and YouTube channel. If you’re really into K-pop or K-dramas, you should check out her blog.


I watched the season 4 finale of Star Trek: Discovery with Corey this week. It was really good. View Spoiler »

Corey and I are now up to season 5 of How I Met Your Mother. I found out that Colbie Smulders reprised her role as Robin in the first season finale of How I Met Your Father. I wasn’t going to watch it, but I think I am now. I’ll at least give it a chance and see if I like it.


I really love my doctor. He fit me in this week so we could talk about my sickness. He ran tests. I don’t have C. difficile or H. pylori. I’m glad that I don’t have either of those and I’m frustrated we don’t know why I’ve been sick for the last three weeks. I have another appointment with my doctor on Tuesday (he fit me in for this one too) to discuss what to do going forward. Hopefully, I’ll be able to give him the good news that I’m still feeling better like I am today.


I want Debbie and Brittany to know I appreciate their thoughtful cards. They both sent me a “thinking of you” card this week. Each note contained a couple of cute stickers and a bookmark. They both made my day.


I need to talk to my academic advisor about how this semester has been kind of off the rails. I need to find out what my options are. I think I’ll be able to be okay in one or two of my classes. And, I know I’m going to fail my computer programming class because I’m just so far behind due to being so sick. I’ll probably just have to take the class again at a later time unless I’m allowed do an Incomplete.

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

      Yeah, it’s been really hard. The sickness has sometimes not been so bad like today and other times it’s been really bad like on Friday. I’m hoping that I’m healing and I’m getting over it. *fingers crossed* Thanks for the well wishes. 🙂

    Thanks for the shoutout! Maybe I’ll find another fan through your post… HA! Love the Got7 song, one of the best out there. And listening to the “old” stuff is perfectly fine. So much great old stuff. So much great new stuff too! Hopefully I can help you find a few more songs you like. Have fun with Fangirl! It’s awesome. I need to finish up Nine Perfect Strangers today.

    I hope you’re feeling better now. Unexplained stomach problems are the worst. I had gastritis a few years back and it turned out thyroid problems seemed to be causing it, which isn’t really a typical symptom, but my GP was so good and kept running tests. So it’s great to hear you’ve got a good doctor.

      Thanks for letting me know what happened to you. Maybe my thyroid is out of whack again. I take thyroid meds. I’ll talk to my doctor about that. I’m glad you got your unexplained stomach problems cleared up. Thanks for the well wishes. 🙂

      Thanks, Karen! 🙂 That’s really cool about your friend and how fun that you did that to help her. My friend Suey’s sister is in Korea teaching English right now. She went because of K-pop and K-dramas.

      I also love watching K-pop music videos. The groups dancing are so awesome. It’s one of my favorite things about K-pop.
