Weekly Recap (Week 14) I am Feelin’ the Vibe for Spring

Happenings of Week 14 of 2022

This week has been such an interesting one, I was able to receive my tax return, so I indulged in replacing my old monitor and also getting new speakers and headphones (Bose) as I am tired of my apple ones and wanted some nice quality sound especially since I am either listening to audiobooks, music or asmr at night to sleep. And they were so well worth the price. I also bought some new books as well and saving the rest as I want to get a new computer tower (my current one is ten years old and so want to get it replaced soon because I am terrified that it will be crashing any time haha and plus I found a super nice one that matches my monitors). I also got a promotion at my job (yay) I don’t know yet how much of a raise it will be, but with inflation, anything will help. And with my health issues, my boss said I had the green light to work from home. I probably won’t do it full time, just a few days a week and then go into work at least 1-2 days a week. I don’t know if mentally I can handle just working from home 100%. Even though my desk space is much nicer than what I have at work, I also don’t want to feel so closed off and have my home feel more like a prison ya know? My reading was a little bit better this week which I am happy about. I can’t believe its the start of April already. Can you believe how much March flew by? There are some fun things I am looking forward to here though. It’s the start of a new month which is always so fun. I just love starting a new month and we are getting warmer weather now although our nights are still cold.

I also mentioned last week that I wanted to share my desk space with you all and I got a good response for it so now you can see the vibe I work with when I am blogging

Current Reads

I really am enjoying my current reads, I just started The Warrior Maiden, and really enjoying the Mulan Retelling. I was supposed to have listened to this before the end of March for my fairytale retelling reading challenge (oops) but I will read two in April so I don’t get behind. Do you like Mulan retellings? Have any recommendations for me? I am so stoked for the ARC of Kerrelyn Sparks, I haven’t read a fantasy in a while. I am getting back to Sophie Lark, this series hasn’t worked well for me, but I do want to read more of her work as I just love her and her hubby as people (check out their instagram, they are like my dream couple). And then I just have to mix it up with some Aja James because I need some PNR in my life. Now that I am getting back to reading again, I am working towards rotating out the genres, I am trying to read less contemporary as I have read a ton of those lately and need to balance it out.

  1. Samantha @WLABB

    Congratulations on the promotion. What wonderful news! I am with you. I like going into the office part of the time. Unfortunately, they won’t entertain any questions about a hybrid schedule until everyone is back to office (whenever that is). Enjoy your nice new set up

  2. Christine @ Captivated Reading

    Congrats on the promotion!!! How exciting! And your workspace is just so pretty! I love it!
    And, yes, March FLEW. I feel like this whole year is flying, if I’m being honest.

  3. Sophia Rose

    Sounds like an all around better week and yay for the promotion. Lovely and relaxing desk area. I like your idea of rotating between genres for your reading plan. Have a good week, Renee!

  4. Sophie @BewareOfTheReader

    Congratulations on your promotion! And I listen to so many audiobooks that I invested in noise cancelling headphones from Sony! Worth every penny!

  5. Carole

    Congratulations on being promoted! I have Bose headphones that I absolutely love. As many hours and I use them, it has been a good investment. I am reading and enjoying When a Princess Proposes right now.

  6. Jen

    YEA!! What great news this past week. Congrats on the promotion and that your work recognizes the importance of a healthy employee! I have to turn in my taxes this week. I’ll be putting it all away to pay for my son’s school – he’ll be a freshman in college this fall!
