The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off.
Hey everyone! Sorry for being late…again. Maybe I should just start saying this feature gets posted on Mondays and Tuesdays, because Sunday just hasn’t been happening much lately. #wompwomp
But I did a TON of blogging stuff on Sunday, anyway, so I’m trying not to feel guilty about posting late. Because of the Write On Review-a-Thon, I was finally able to get my NetGalley ratio over the recommended 80%! And then I kept going until it hit 90%, so I should be good for awhile. Victory is mine!
It’s also cool that my reviews for the next 2+ weeks are written, I just need to create the actual blog posts for them. I’m never this ahead!
It’s My Life
Things have been pretty “as per usual” with me. Writing and editing during the day, writing and reading at night. I did have the stomach flu for a few days, so that was *really* fun. At least I got a ton of reading and binge-watching done. Who else is watching Empire? I haven’t had time to watch the finale yet, but I’m addicted.
Going to New York City on the weekends. The weather has sucked the past few times I’ve visited Boyfriend, so I didn’t go out into the city much.
But you know what’s awesome about New York? EVERYTHING delivers. Saturday morning, it was cold and rainy. Even though my favorite UES bagel shop was only half a block away, I just didn’t want to deal with it. I’d be buying breakfast for both Saturday and Sunday, and Boyfriend would want food as well. It had been warm, so I didn’t have a jacket that was good for the rain with me. Even though I would’ve only been walking for 5 minutes max, round trip, I just didn’t want to deal with it.
Behold, Seamless! I’ve known about Seamless for years, but hi, I live in Delaware. We don’t have Uber, Seamless, or any of those fun service startups that make your life easy. So Saturday was the first time I used it. I placed my order online and like 5 minutes later, someone was at Boyfriend’s door with half a dozen bagels, chocolate milk, and Pringles. Gotta have Pringles.
Is it weird that this was like the highlight of my week? Probably. I don’t care. I like food but I don’t want to put in effort to go get it. Laziness trumps hungriness for me 70% of the time.
