The Sunday Post #124


The Sunday Post is hosted by 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 has been fairly boring. I added 2,000 words to the thesis chapter I’m currently working on so I’m almost halfway through the first draft of that chapter now which is very exciting. I should have it finished by the end of November, just in time for my submission supervision meeting in December. I have a deadline on the 14th of November to send 8,000 words to my supervisor and I’m currently at 7,000 words so that’s definitely achievable.

I was meant to be doing some other stuff but there was some localised flooding on Thursday and Friday so everything got cancelled.

Things I’ve Enjoyed This Week

Call my Name by GOT7 – I was super excited for GOT7’s comeback, even after I realised I couldn’t really afford to spend £25 on the actual album because I’m meant to be saving money. I absolutely love the album. My favourite song is either Pray or Thursday, I can’t decide, but every single song on the EP is fantastic. The music video for You Calling My Name is pretty cool too.

Queer Eye: We’re in Japan – I needed this little pick-me-up this week. Every episode was super sweet and I loved Yoko-san so much.


This week’s to-do list:

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

Next week’s to-do list:

  • Finish one book
  • Post a book review
  • Pack for the Lake District

I hope everyone had a great week!
