Weekly Wrap-Up: July 14, 2019

This a week of sleep! I’ve sleptย so much. I have iron deficiency anemia, so I’m kind of always cold and always, always tired. I also bruise really easily, which is totally awesome in combination with my clumsiness (I’m being sarcastic, in case the text wasn’t conveying that properly), because it means parts of my body look like they’ve been part of a fight club for the last few weekends. What can you do? ๐Ÿคท (Take iron supplements probably, but whatever.) Anyway, the sleep has been good for me!

Other than sleeping, I’ve worked more than usual between all my jobs. We’re getting into the slightly busier season at my art instructor/bartender job, and the shifts there have been a lot of fun – helping people make stuff that they love & will hang up in their homes is such a cool experience! My boss from one of my other jobs has travel stuff coming up for most of this month, so we had to prep a lot of “here’s what to do while I’m gone” so I could keep busy – which, in itself, was lots of being busy, too! I really like what I do there though – having jobs you like is such a huge difference from having a job you hate! Even when I’m working a lot, it doesn’t feel as bad as even my slowest week at my last job of 6 years. I’m very grateful! ๐Ÿ™

I also finally finished a couple of books! I decided to lower my Goodreads goal from 200 to 150 since I didn’t have 4 jobs originally when I set the goal, and this feels a lot more doable for me. In 2018, I read just over 100, so a 50ish book increase is a good aim, I think!

  1. Anemia can be caused by a few things but a solid diet featuring iron rich foods can help. I hope you feel better.
