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.
This week was a bad week.
On Monday I had an argument in class about whether Frankenstein was a Science Fiction novel or not. It is. Don’t tell me that it isn’t.
Tuesday was another bad day as I had a minor meltdown in Palaeography. Don’t ask.
Wednesday was the worst day of the week. Everything went wrong. I woke up to a huge rash on my face which means that I had an allergic reaction to something. Yay. (My skin is still feeling terrible even though I’m on antihistamines.) I got to uni for my work placement and someone else was using my computer. A colleague kindly gave me his computer after he left to teach a class but it locked me out after 10 minutes. I then went through three laptops, the last of which finally worked. BUT it didn’t have the software I needed on it so I had to download that and it took 6 HOURS. I had finished my day by the time it had downloaded. So I had to go back to the work I’d been doing previously which I didn’t mind to be honest. The tram home was a nightmare because the University of Sheffield had won the varsity against Sheffield Hallam (Go #BlackAndGold!) and a lot of my fellow students were heading off to watch the final event, Ice Hockey, when I just wanted to go home and curl up in a ball.
Thursday was okay. I got my hair cut and my hairdresser is super talented and a lovely lady. She made my hair look perfect.
Friday brought more Funko Pop! figures into my life: Black Panther and War Machine.
Saturday was a weird day. I watched a TV programme about Lego and then Shakespeare Live on the BBC. I had a headache for most of the day though and I was kind of out of it until the late evening. I did manage to post my #Shakespeare400 posts though so I’m happy.
Today has been nice. Lazy and quiet.
