Book releases for June 30th:
I’m low key stressed about what teaching will be like next year. Teaching is such a difficult job, but to add to it getting kids to keep masks on, stay socially distant, and learn. (Seriously, though, the “I’m gonna cough on you cause I’m mad” is a real concern). Also, schools are germ factories and I don’t want to get sick. I have to report on August 3rd. The stress is real.
I can’t believe it will be July next week! June seemed to just pass in a haze. I think its because working from home blended into summer break and it feels like the most boring groundhog’s day that’s just on repeat from March.
I did get a haircut this week, which was nice. I didn’t rush out as soon as the salons opened back up-I didn’t feel comfortable and it wasn’t necessary for me to get a haircut. My stylist is such a lovely person and you can just see the stress she is under. People have been horrible to her (like it was her fault she was unemployed for months) and they don’t want to follow the rules about wearing a mask. Then she has to kick them out. She is the sole caregiver for her mom and grandmother, both of whom the virus is very dangerous for. She needed to be back at work because she needs a paycheck, but work is exhausting and overwhelming. I felt so terrible for her. It made me realize even more that just because a place is open doesn’t mean you should go there.
However, this week, I have a few places I have to go. First, I have bloodwork on Monday. They can’t do that via telehealth, so I have to go in. Then, I have an audiologist appointment on Wednesday. So far, those are the only 2 things I have to leave the house for.
My health insurance ends on June 30th. I was able to get on my husband’s until my new insurance kicks in (September 1st) but I haven’t gotten the card yet, so I don’t have any of the info. Just another thing to stress about.
I’m listening to the Bolton book. I’m only on like chapter 4; so far, nothing I didn’t already expect-it is run like no other White House (read: utter chaos) and Trump is egomaniacal. Also, Bolton has a very high opinion of himself. Again, didn’t need to buy the book to learn that. Still, its interesting to get a glimpse into the way things were done and handled and how inefficient and ill planned even the simplest of tasks.
Finally, I am attempting to learn how to use Lightroom and Photoshop! Wish me luck (so far, I have the VERY basics kinda down).
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
