Dear Sunday: Week Two

Hello and welcome to my weekly recap-- inspired by The Caffeinated Book series. For my first week, I wrote all my blog posts one Saturday at my local library. This week I didn't have a chunk of time ((*shudder* I'm working on a horrible coding project and one of my variables is chunk and I never want to see that word again)) to do that, so it was surprisingly difficult to get everything written on time. And this weekend has also been busy. I'll have to devote maybe Tuesday night and hide out in a coffee shop and get everything written.

This week at work has been...a week. The problem with going into single-molecule biophysics is that when you run experiments with, you know, single molecules, it can be a bit random. Getting different results on different days doesn't necessarily mean you're doing something wrong, the conditions could have minutely changed from day to day giving you different results.

It sucks but it's something I'm trying to get used to. In other news I stopped watching so much YouTube and finally finished Something Rotten which was sitting unread on my coffee table for an unreasonable amount of time. Has that ever happened to you? You know you're in the middle of a good book, but sometimes the motivation to put down the TV remote (metaphorically) is just not there?

The picture on the left is at a local botanical garden sponsored by an insurance company (I know!) and it is gorgeous. Now for the links!

  • Top Ten Tuesday:10 Books From X Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR List
  • Stacking the Shelves ((hopefully, for those playing a long at home I missed it last week!))

As I've found out, the 'coming up on the blog' is a projected timeline-- I might find a cool series I want to be a part of, or a book I realize I just have to review, etc etc. Follow me on Bloglovin' if you want to get notified of my new posts! Or just come here every day, the choice is yours :) 

How was your week? Do you ever get wrapped up online and fail to get back to the a book you know you'll enjoy?

  1. Yes, I get sucked into YouTube as well. Thankfully there is nothing on YouTube pulling me in right now. I have to give up my reading time when I fall down the YouTube hole. :)

    1. Haha lucky! The problem with being subscribed to so many cool channels is that there always seems to be new exciting content created that I just /have/ to watch.

  2. Wrapped up online? Me? Never! Just kidding ;) There's just not enough hours in a day!
    Found you at the Sunday Post. Mine is here if you want to check it out :)

    I hope your molecules cooperate with you better this week. Have a great one!

    1. Haha I know! I need an extra couple of hours everyday to fit in my hobbies AND keep my internet time ;)
      Thanks-- I hope you have a great week as well!

  3. That chunk of time is so difficult to find! Especially when real life gets a little chaotic. I'm struggling with that putting down the remote issue as well. It's not that I don't like what I'm reading it's just that I'm not really feeling the urge to read. Hope the molecules behave this week! Have a great week!

    1. Yeah, my life has gotten a little busy since switching into summer mode.
      I know-- it's weird when I don't feel the urge to read especially when I know I'm in the middle of a good book. American Gods by Neil Gaiman was like that especially-- every time I put down the book I was like 'ehh do I want to keep reading?' and every time I was actually reading it I was like 'oh my gosh this is amazing'. I'm odd ;)
      Thanks!
