Hey everyone! Oh what a hectic week it’s been. Honestly it feels like two weeks have passed, not one. I have so much to update y’all on.
I posted a poll on twitter whether I should do another Sunday post like last week to update y’all on my week in life and everyone voted yes so here it is! The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and I’m so glad to be joining in again so soon!
My internship started!
So I started on Wednesday and honestly I’m so glad that I didn’t have to start on Monday. It’s only been three days and I’m already super tired, in need of a weekend.
First, some backstory about my health.
I have a problem where if there’s too much light around me, my eyes get strained hence becoming red. Tubelights on during the day or too many tubelights switched on at a time cause strain. I’ve had this since I was a kid. After going to multiple doctors, who said everything is fine and that I just shouldn’t watch TV too much, my mum and I still weren’t convinced. Because I hardly watched TV.
Finally we found a reputed doctor and consulted him. He told it’s actually a problem and it’s not common so many people don’t know about it. He only knows it because he researched it since he has it. He pointed at the bulb, which illuminates his office lesser, saying that’s why he has low light. He told to get glasses, which will help, but still it’s better not to be around too much light. I wear glasses whenever I go out and when I’m using the laptop/computer at home.
The first day it was new and I was very awkward but it was okay. Except my eyes were red and burning by the end of the day. In all the rooms, there were multiple lights on. True, they are big rooms, but the brightness was too much for my eyes.
Day 2, my eyes were only moderately red but I had a pounding headache.
Day 3 it was both red eyes and pounding headache. Not only did I spend most of the day learning on computers, there were also the tubelights. I was so done by the end of the day! I just wanted to sleep for two days straight.
I’m glad I’m doing an internship because I’m learning new things which I’ll be applying immediately and I’m seeing the office life. But my eyes are NOT used to this and by the end of the day, I keep covering my eyes for a few minutes to give them a break.
Better get used to this as well since this will be my life later.
My college friends came over for a day!
This is the highlight of my week.
Immediately after exams ended, I texted my friends from college inviting them over. I knew that they had plans afterwards and wouldn’t all be able to come. We decided on Saturday which was yesterday.
I had a really good time, and I think they did too! They loved the place I live in and the weather was PERFECT today.
I treated them to lunch in a nearby place, which they also really liked. Then I showed them around my area. After that we came home and played a few semi-intense games of jenga, which was pretty funny.
We also went out to a badminton court to play. I haven’t played the sport in SO LONG. I used to play it pretty regularly but I don’t anymore.
So yeah we were playing in turns and guess what? I fell down and hurt my hand. It was a windy day so the shuttle kept going off track. Once we were having a nice game and I tried to hit the shuttle but it went to my right because of the wind. I also went to my right following it and ended up tripping and falling, because I’m super clumsy.
I fell on the side of my face as well but I didn’t get bruised there. My right (and dominant) hand took the brunt and I have a small wound that bled a little. It took a while to stop bleeding and clot, more than usual, because I have a low platelet count (I have many health issues lol).
It’s kinda okay now (I’m typing this on Saturday night) but it’s really red and it hurts every time I scrunch that part of my palm or bend my wrist. I’m actually writing this blog post mainly with my left hand, only using my right hand for the right side of the keyboard and that too only the third and fourth fingers. If there are any typos, please excuse them.
I did realize I can’t write with my right hand (as of now) because I’ll have to scrunch the lower part of my palm. No bullet journalling for a while. The next few days are going to be fun 🙃
My reading updates
I read quite a bit on Monday and Tuesday because I suddenly got the mood and a little on the other days.
- P. S. I Like You by Kasie West. I saw someone on Instagram mention that thet’re going to reread it and I couldn’t help myself from rereading it as well. It gave me all the feels like the first time I read it.
- Mister Tonight by Kendall Ryan. I was perusing through the New Adult lists on Goodreads because I was really in the mood to read New Adult romance. I’ve read Kendall Ryan’s books before, and they were okay, so I picked this up. I finished it really fast! Small and lighthearted book that I breezed through. I’ll post a review as soon as I can.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I have a paperback copy of this book which I finally finished after a few days of reading. It was so magical and wonderful! I can’t wait to review it.
- The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. I’ve been seeing this book everywhere and I’m so glad I read it! It was so cute and nice and aaaah just so nice. I really liked it. I’ll be reviewing this on the blog as well.
This makes my read count of the year to 94/150.
Okay so I didn’t mention it last week because I wasn’t really reading it but I started Legendary by Stephanie Garber a LONG time back when I had finals going on. After reading a little, I just never picked it up again sadly. I really neeeed to! My goal is to finish reading it this coming week. Let’s see if that works.
I started reading Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi finally! It sounded right up my sleeve so I thought I’d like it, not considering the hype. Maybe I was wrong? I’ve read 234 pages out of 531 and I’m still meh about it. I don’t like the two female leads and the two male leads are okay but leaning on dislike. The story’s concepts are nice but I don’t feel like it’s been executed well. We’ll see.
I’m currently procrastinating on reading COBAB as well because I really don’t want to not like it.
What’s going on in your life?
Wow I didn’t even realize typing so much with a wounded hand lol.
How was your week? Did anything out of the blue happen or did something start? Let me know in the comments!
