What’s Up Wednesday

Okay, so I find myself kind of hilarious sometimes. This is one of those times. While I was sitting at my computer just now, I was like I want to add a weekly check in kind of post to my blog. I was playing with names  like you do and then to make sure it was unique I took to the cloud! Turns out the name I was thinking about using is already in use. Guess what guys? That is so totally fine by me. Because I was so excited to find What’s Up Wednesday @ Jamie-Morrow.com! This blog hop is exactly along the lines of what I’d been thinking about, but so much better! Also, I love her website and I LOVE the buttons she created for WUW.

WUW1

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Jamie-Morrow and ErinlFunk where you use the headings below to talk about what’s up. 🙂 If you want to participate and I hope you do, please check out the info page here: What’s Up Wednesday

I noticed this blog hop is also reaching out to writers. I used to dabble, but I haven’t really made much time for writing anymore. It’s something I’d like to start doing again, but until then I’ll probably leave that heading blank.

Also, just a heads up. I really like doing reviews on Wednesdays so I plan to keep posting them. However, that means double posts on Wednesdays now that I’m participating in this blog hop. Some weeks I might not have a review to post. Some weeks I might not want to participate in the blog hop. What this means is sometimes there will be two posts on Wednesdays, sometimes there will only be one. I hope that gels with everybody because I’m super excited about participating in WUW!

And so it begins…

WHAT I’M READING…

I’m reading a lot this week. Well I’m trying to make up for last week’s lack of reading. I have plans to finish Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer. Ending two series in one week, what am I thinking?! I also need to read and return to the library Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

WHAT I’M WRITING… 

WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW…

At this moment I’m inspired by Outlander LOL I just caught up with the three episodes on Starz and I can’t stop thinking about it. I would totally tackle the tomes if they weren’t so big. So I’m watching and from what I hear they’re staying pretty true to the books so far? Then again it’s early, plenty of time to change it up!

WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

Well, I participated in Bout of Books last week. True Blood finale, the whole final season actually, was lame-o! Suits summer finale on the other hand was effin-a! Rookie Blue had a nice finale, too. I like the set-up for next season, minus the re-emergence of Marlo. I like her character and I’m glad to have her back, just not too excited about the why.

Oh and I went on three interviews, one with a temp agency, two at two different companies. The temp lady was great and I for-see us working together to get me into a job real soon.

The last two interviews were on the same day within an hour of each other. I didn’t get the first one and while I won’t know for sure about the second one until Friday I don’t think I got that one either. I’m bummed because the second one was an awesome opportunity and really close to home. I’d finally have a job with a less than a 10 minute commute, something I haven’t had since 04-05.

But I need to look on the bright side. My interview skills were very rusty and if nothing else I got a good bit of interview experience. Going back to the temp agency this week and hopefully can schedule a couple more interviews before my husband and I go out-of-town for the holiday weekend.

Okay, your turn! Tell me what you guys got going on this week!

    1. Well see I wrote that in the post, but actually I did start to write a little after I read She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick, but nothing since then.

      Thank you and you too!

  1. Welcome to WUW and good luck with your job interviews! I’ve worked temp jobs in the past, and I’ve usually enjoyed them. One might’ve turned into a full-time job if I hadn’t been run over by a car on my way to work one morning.

    I’ve heard good things about the Outlander series, and have been recommended it since I write such massive historicals myself, but I’m kind of hesitant given all the hype. Almost always, I end up hating or feeling meh about such hyped books, and decidedly not following the crowd.

    1. Thanks! I am so excited to find this blog hop!

      Run over? Oh my goodness! I hope you weren’t seriously hurt!

      I can go either way with hyped books. It really just depends on my mindset going into them. In regards to Outlander, I know I’d never get around to reading it. Maybe once I am working again I might be tempted to listen to the audiobooks during my commutes.

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
