The Sunday Post is a weekly meme originally from Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things I have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on my blog.
So my first Sunday Post is here.. I’m excited… So a recap of my week…. This week has been silent.. I’m still waiting for the answer if I did get the job or not? I hate waiting…
This is me and my patience hahahahaa…. After so long sitting at home you get impatient…. And to top it off my boyfriend has to work over hours like crazy… And with irregular shifts that sucks…
I’m dreading the coming time.. Our laptop has a faulty graphic card we think… It crashes while playing a game on it… It’s a gaming laptop….. But we still have warranty, but that means we’ll lose the laptop for approximately 4 weeks….
So I’m working my ass off to schedule ahead as far as I can… I’ve been behind a lot and what I wrote got published the same day…. So yes, this sunday post is being written ahead.. lol….
So my weekend was nice, a visit from my dad on Saturday and today I had a nice lunch with my aunties =]
Oh my God… The Olympics today😱 I’ve literally been crying just now. I love race cycling and just watched the ladies road race in Rio. Annemiek van Vleuten crashes real ugly 10km before getting the gold… For fifteen minutes we thought she’s died because of how horrific she crashed. In the mean time Ann van der Breggen won the gold medal and is Olympic champion. Could have been gold and silver today. But mostly we’re waiting on how she is doing. She is taken to the hospital and said to be responsive. But oh my God it was a real ugly crash. We got our stomachs turned and with tears in our eyes. Now it’s tears from sadness, shock and happiness for Anna van der Breggen, our first medal for The Netherlands. And gold it is!!
Now I’ll be fighting with my laptop which crashes every 5 minutes. So I’m typing most of this on my phone today. Luckily I’ve prepared most of the post on my laptop a few days ago.
So this week was a bit more productive than last… I tried writing ahead for a couple of weeks… I hope I’ll manage, or it’s writing on the slow and old desktop blegh =[
