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

This week was fun!

I attended a guest lecture/seminar on American Horror Films (honestly, being a PhD student is the best), went to a reading group where we discussed the works of female Gothic writers, had a supervision meeting, contributed to a blog post about spooky art, and read some fantastic books. I also started AcWriMo (Academic Writing Month) and my goal is to write and edit a 15,000-word thesis chapter by the end of November.

I enjoyed this week a lot. It’s the best week I’ve had in a while.

Around the Blogosphere

This week I’ve read a lot of great posts on various different topics. Here are a few of the posts that I’ve been enjoying this week:

Things I’m Into This Week

  • The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star (Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star) – I, like most of the internet, have been hooked on this series. I don’t even know why because I don’t follow either of them and I’m not that interested in make-up. I obviously just like the drama of it all.
  • 1/? Vol.5 by Def. – I swear that Lim Jae-beom is trying to kill me via the medium of music. I love the music he makes with GOT7 but his solo mixtapes are just so good and they always drop when I need them the most. It’s super chill and I’m in love with it.
  • Buzzfeed Unsolved – It was Hallowe’en this week so I binge-watched a lot of Buzzfeed Unsolved episodes. I think my favourites are Alton Bridge and Colchester Castle. I love the Colchester Castle episode because it’s always fun to watch Americans in Britain.

This week’s to-do list:

  • Finish one book
  • Post a book review

Next week’s to-do list:

  • Finish one book
  • Post a book review
  • Buy GOT7’s new album

I hope everyone had a great week!
