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.
Donald Trump is going to be the next POTUS. I stayed up to watch the results on Wednesday morning and I couldn’t believe what I was watching on TV. Wow.
It snowed on Wednesday so I went out for a walk in the snow. It was bloody freezing and the walk may have been a bad plan because my hands turned blue!
On Friday I had a job interview. I can’t even remember applying for the job in the first place since I applied in way back August. It went okay.
On Saturday I spent the day at university. I was attending a conference on Ben Jonson since his folio was published in 1616 and 2016 is a year of celebrating the Renaissance. I also helped out with the organisation before the conference started which was nice since I’m not actually a student any more but I’m still being included in things like this until I (hopefully) start my PhD next year. I had extensive conversations with my potential PhD supervisor too at the conference since he was the one that organised it all.
I also got a call back about the job on Saturday and I got it. I’ll now be working for 16 hours a week (but getting paid for 18 because I get paid ‘time and a half’ on Sundays!) so I have my induction on Monday. It’s just a supermarket job but I’m happy that I’ll have some money coming in.
