High five, three day weekend! Certainly not a bad way to ease into a change. I mentioned the other day that I made it through my first week of school relatively unscathed and, thanks to the three day weekend, even found some time for friends, movies, and pizza. As an added bonus, Hurricane Hermine (sadly, not Hermoine) hung to the east, so we got a nice break from the heat and a Saturday morning shower without any of the flooding or damage.
It was a super strange week for me reading-wise, but it’s probably just a preview of the way things are about to change (since reading for my classes has barely started). Adjusting to a new schedule kind of threw me for a loop and made it tricky for me to read all week, so I’m still working on Commonwealth, even though I really wanted to dig into something. As I headed out on Friday I decided to pop open Overdrive and grabbed an audio copy of The Nix from the library. I know. AN AUDIOBOOK. I listened while walking all over campus, during my grocery trip and other errands, including picking up a paper copy of The Nix that had come in at the library. I’ve been switching between audio and paper now, but it’s been a good way to squeeze in extra reading time. What about my podcasts, though?? Curse you, clock!
