Weekly Wrap-up | May 24, 2020

Hi everyone! This past week was a really good one for me. It was days 65-70 of isolation, and I’m falling into a good groove. My reading has shot up incredibly. I finished six books this week: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Illuminae, A Conspiracy in Belgravia, A Study in Scarlet Women, and Bloom. I also started a book journal and if you’re interested, I’d be happy to post pictures.

I’m getting back into the exercise groove this week as well. I ran three times: a mile on Tuesday, two miles on Thursday, and 3.10 miles on Saturday. I didn’t work out on the days I didn’t run like I’d ideally want to, but I did go on walks. A lot of times around the internet, I see posts that say something to the effect of “running is my therapy” or “lifting is my therapy.” Well. Therapy is my therapy, but working out is what I do to help my mood. And getting back to running this week has really helped it.

In other news, I wrote a little this week, but not as much as I should. I hope that once school is officially out for the year, I’ll have the discipline to get back to doing what I love. Right now, my work stuff takes up my desk and I’m just not as focused when I’m writing on my couch.

Lastly, I’ve moved to a self-hosted journal. I’m completely out to sea at how this works, and can only hope people will follow me here.

And now, onto the week.
