#AMonthofFaves A Day in My Life

This was Friday’s prompt!

FRI | Dec. 10 – #AMonthofFaves – A Day / Weekend / Week in the Life (give us a peek into your life)⁠

I didn’t post this on the day of because my daughter came home for break, and my day absolutely got away from me, and then yesterday I had to catch up on work because it’s the end of the semester. I almost talked myself out of posting at all, but then I remembered I had already written everything down, so here’s what my day was like on Thursday, December 9, 2021.

#AMonthofFaves Best Buys of 2021

I’m linking up with Tanya and Kimberly to participate in A Month of Faves. Today’s Yesterday’s prompt is was These are a Few of Our Favorite Things, and I am focusing on my best buys of 2021.

So, um. I bought a lot of stuff this year. Partly–okay, mostly–because I moved. But also, I just saw a lot of stuff that I wanted. Full disclosure: I looked back through my Amazon purchase history and may have made this face: 😮. And then I looked back through my Etsy purchase history and made this face: 😅.

Anyway, I regret nothing.

Depression, part III #SOL21

“Am I secretly depressed?”

This was a question I asked my primary care provider over five years ago. The question came about after she asked me if I was depressed, and I told her no. Why did she ask? Because one of the meds in my history was for depression. When I explained that no, it was for headaches, she just nodded. Then, when I asked if that meant I was secretly depressed, she said no; the medication was contraindicated for headaches.

Z is for Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist #AtoZChallenge #PandemicAlphabet

Let me tell you the story about a girl named Zoey who goes for an MRI and comes out with a superpower–the ability to hear people’s “heart songs” aka the songs that express what they’re really thinking and feeling. For, lo, that is what Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) is about.

X is for X-Men #AtoZChallenge #PandemicAlphabet

Full disclosure: The is the one time I’m breaking my self-imposed rule and posting about something I’ve already used before for an A to Z Challenge. I think the reason is obvious but just in case it’s not: X IS A HARD LETTER. The only thing I have watched that starts with an X is X-Men. I have read no books that start with an X. So it is what it is.

And what it is, is the X-Men…cartoon from the ’90s.

V is for Variety #AtoZChallenge #PandemicAlphabet

Welp, it happened. V officially stumped me. My goal was to write about something I had not yet spotlighted for the A to Z Challenge, and all I have for V is The Vampire Diaries (which I wrote about last year) and Valentine Princess by Meg Cabot, which is part of the Princess Diaries series…which I also wrote about last year. My third option was The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett, which is amazing and everyone should read, but I would in no way call it a comfort read even though I read it in two days during the pandemic. (Seriously, read it. It’s so good.)

So where does that leave me? With my next favorite thing–a list. So here’s a list of a VARIETY of the books, TV shows, and movies I almost blogged about but that didn’t quite make the cut this time. Any of the following would make great comfort reads or watches!

U is for Ugly Betty #AtoZChallenge #PandemicAlphabet

Here’s where I admit that I never finished watching Ugly Betty. It’s not the show’s fault, honestly. It’s just that I was working on my PhD and felt immensely guilty when I watched anything I actually enjoyed on television. So, this was just one of many TV casualties. It was a dark time.

Anyway, the point is that every time I see that Ugly Betty is streaming on Hulu, I think now would be the perfect time to actually revisit the show and finish watching it.
