Five for Friday

  • Life post thesis is so so strange. No one warned me about the daze you go into. So here's a warning for those thesising or planning to do so. 
  • I have in the 2 days since finishing watched season 1 of Jane the Virginrearranged a few drawers, had a much needed massage and just been super sleepy.
  • Next week, will be the great find funding week. And thereafter I'll be at a data carpentry workshop for three days. I'm thinking being busy might just help with this meh feeling.
  • I'm also got to get that 30 days of yoga thing going...if I stick to it this time, then this will be the year I achieve. Which is just a strange, strange thought and feeling. Changing my self narrative is so hard. It's one of the hardest adulting things yet.
  • Mostly, I'm still in shock about this all. So distract me with some news from your side please.

Book Thursday: The Breakup Support Group Review

Oh hello there,

It's a Book Thursday post, the first in ages. Just below are my thoughts on the book. And it's followed the the blurb bits.

Books ftw!
========================================
In a nutshell this read is cute, predictable...and leaves you wanting your own support group.

In a little more detail, for some reason the pronunciation guide Isla gives for others stayed with me as the funniest part of the story. Totally a strange thing to stay with you, but for me it sums up the book as whole. The story is cute, you know what's going to happen between Isla and Emory...but there are moments (staircase) that stays with them.

The support group folks are amazing, and need their own stories.

*I'm a lucky fish and received a copy of the book.*

============================================

The Breakup Support GroupThe Breakup Support Group
by Cheyanne Young
Genre: Romance
Age category: Young Adult

Blurb:
After four years of first love bliss, Isla Rush just got dumped. Any hope she has of winning her ex-boyfriend back is shattered when the town rezones her neighborhood, forcing her to spend senior year at a wealthy high school in the next town over. With a broken heart consuming her soul, Isla can’t focus on anything in class. Hell, she can barely get out of bed each morning. Her new school has too many confusing hallways, unfriendly faces, and Emory Underwood—a ridiculously hot guy who dates a new girl almost every day. She can’t help but crush on him, even though she knows it’s wrong.

When memories of her ex make her cry in second period, the school counselor sends Isla to a club that meets during lunch. The Breakup Support Group is a collection of broken-hearted misfits who are all trying to help each other heal. For the first time since her break up, Isla’s heart is on the mend now that she has the support group. Then Emory shows up, forced to atone for all the broken hearts he’s caused over the years. While hiding her massive crush, she helps him understand the seriousness of breaking a heart and he helps her get back on the dating scene.

Part of her peer-prescribed therapy is to learn the art of dating around. Emory offers to be her fake date for the homecoming dance, and she’s happy to accept. He’s just a crush, after all—she can handle a night of playing pretend. When the date ends with a toe-curling kiss on her front porch, all of her well-placed boundaries come crumbling down. After months of therapy, the pieces of her heart are finally healed. And now she just handed it over to a guy who only knows how to break them.

A moment

Hiya folks.

Currently, I'm in a state of panic and worry and stress. It's the week before thesis submission...and it's just all kinds of what is even going on/ I have the stressed out shakes and all sorts of panic...and I'm so heading for a funk.

In a bid to not get all funked out, I'm taking a moment to take stock of some good things. So this is kind of a gratitude post, but also a ramble.

I'm a lucky fish in terms of the people I get to call friend. Yesterday, one dropped of a treat bag to survive this week. And then she and her kiddie stayed for a spontaneous visit. It was a lovely, lovely end to the weekend.

The editor for my thesis has such mad skillz...I know it was money well worth the spend.

We now have access to Showmax, and season 1 and 2 of Star Wars Rebels is on it. Keiden is very happy about it.

I have a friend who knows me well enough to figure out a way to help me - and her - get this exercise thing working.

Jerall is an excellent cook, and my tummy is very happy about it. Plus, not having to always cook is so one of the best things.

Keiden is such a bookworm already. He pretty much just wants to read all the time, we've had to institute a no reading while we're eating together rule :D

I'm just such a lucky fish, with the right people in my life. It's wonderful.

How are you doing?
