The Sunday Post #6

The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This post is an opportunity to recap the past week on my blog and in my personal life. It’s also a chance to set up some goals for the upcoming week and talk about anything else that I want to talk about.

See the rules here.


Personal:

University was amazing this week.

I got to work with some very old, very rare books. I felt very nervous touching them but it was a fantastic experience. I can’t wait for my next chance to visit Special Collections in my university library.

My favourite book was the 1596 copy of The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser

The Faerie Queene 1596

I have been essay writing this week too. This is my progress so far:

  • Monday: 314 words of first draft written
  • Tuesday: 0 words
  • Wednesday: 757 words (1071 in total)
  • Thursday: 445 words (1516 in total)
  • Friday: 563 words (2079 in total)
  • Saturday: 1109 words (3188 in total. First draft complete!)
  • Sunday: 0 words.

Also, my graduation tickets arrived this week. They’re very pink!

I graduate from my BA Hons on the 19th of November in the beautiful York Minster so I’ll be posting lots of photos of that event in a couple of weeks.
