I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed this week. Corey and I’ve been packing up a storm to get our place ready for pictures so we can put it on the market. We barely made it yesterday. We’re both so worn out and tired from all the packing and cleaning.
I’m also feeling proud. I got my grades for last semester and I got A’s in both my Japanese and trigonometry classes. I knew I was going to fail my computer programming class because I got behind when I got sick. Instead of giving me an F, my teacher gave me a UW (unofficial withdrawal) and I’m okay with that.
I started a new iteration of the computer programming class this week and I feel so much better about it already. Since it’s the only class I’m taking during the summer, I’ll be able to devote plenty of time to learning the concepts.
I’m also feeling proud because I graduated from DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) on Thursday. I actually shared my experience on Twitter in a thread about having Borderline Personality Disorder and graduating from therapy. Here’s the first tweet if you want to read the thread. (There’s a trigger warning for suicide.)
This week on the blog:
I didn’t read anything this week either. It’s just been so crazy around here. Hopefully, today I can get some reading in. I want to focus on starting the read-alongs I’m supposed to be participating in for Wyrd & Wonder and my IRL book club’s May book, which are:
- THE SUMMER TREE by Guy Gavriel Kay
- THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black
- CARVE THE MARK by Veronica Roth (book club book)
I need to make CARVE THE MARK my priority, though, because our book club meeting is this coming Wednesday. Wish me luck.
This week, I’ve been listening to “Something in the Way” by Nirvana thanks to watching The Batman. I actually forgot about this song. I love Nirvana, but I normally listen to “Smells Like Team Spirit” and “Come as You Are” in my Faves playlist.
Corey and I finally watched The Batman. It’s on HBO Max and I’ve been wanting to see it ever since the reviews said it was the best Batman movie yet. Corey’s not a DC fan. At. All. I don’t mind some of DC’s stuff. I like Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and I Shazam! Superman’s one of my favorite superheroes and I liked the first movie with Henry Cavill, but once Ben Affleck shows up as Batman I start to lose interest. I liked both Wonder Woman movies all right, except I always say this: the first Wonder Woman movie is just Captain America: the First Avenger set in WWI with Wonder Woman as the superhero instead of Steve Rogers.
Anyway, back to The Batman. I thought it was fantastic. Robert Pattinson did a phenomenal job as Bruce Wayne/Batman. I had my doubts and he crushed it. The rest of the cast was amazing too. The movie and story are very dark, but what else is new; it’s DC. I loved that the story focuses on Batman’s detective nature. Nirvana’s “Something in the Way” was perfect for the movie. It gave me chills. If you haven’t seen it and you like superhero movies, you should give it a go. If you’re a ginormous Batman fan, I’m not sure what you’ll think.
I love how clean and empty my house feels right now. We decluttered it for the pictures and while we show it to potential buyers. I think Corey and I are going to throw out a lot stuff. Everything feels so open and roomy. I miss my library, though. That will be the first thing I unpack after we move.
I want to get my nails done. They’re way too long right now. I might have time at some point in the near future to get a manicure. #firstworldproblems
I need to find my mom and dad’s death certificates. My siblings and I were each given one after both of my parents passed away. I put them in a safe place. However, as I was packing this week, I realized they’re not there anymore. I’m sure they’ve just been misplaced from the last time I used them. I just want to make sure I know where they are.
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
