How my week went
I had dance intensives this week and … wow. Intensive is right! I’m used to long, late-night practices. But five hours of straight dancing starting at 9:30am … it’s a bit much. It kind of takes up your whole day, doesn’t it? Alas. At least I can come home, throw myself in my chair, eat a heaping bowl of ice cream and read. Which is kind of counter-productive, but I dont care. It was necessary 😜
Except then on Saturday – I had a fourteen hour shift. Ow. After the week I had, fourteen hours at my local amusement park standing was a bit too much for me. I can’t feel my feet. Really. Where did they go?!!?
But overall, I did have a fun week. I worked hard, sweated a lot, but it was very fun. Which is good – if it wasn’t, I might have boycotted.

What I Read This Week
In my defense … I didn’t have much time to read this week.
Around the Blogosphere
Well, Paper Fury strikes again! I talk about her every week because she is my #1 blog to follow constantly. Plus, Cait never sleeps. I’m convinced. She has all these amazing photos with like 4,548,645 books in the background (which is just mind-blowing. I have a photo shoot that includes maximum five books in each picture and my shelves are currently bare because they threw their books at me and I haven’t had time to pick up so floor-is-not-lava, floor-is-books. Anyway.), she writes like FIVE blog posts a week (which just blows my mind because HOWW), she reads all the time, writes all the time, bakes cakes (well, I assume. Talks about them at least) and I just don’t know how anyone could possibly sleep with all that. Point is, there’s always something to sooth your Paper Fury need. My #1 favorite post from her this week is 10 Authors I Claim Are My Absolute Favourites…But Have I Read All Their Books Yet?? #AwkwardNo. It’s so funny and #relatable. She needs to contact The Broke and the Bookish to put this as a Top Ten Tuesday idea. Also this, 17 Bookworm #LifeHacks That Will Help Achieve Success (Or Else Confusion And Death…Who Knows! Exciting!) Love it :DD
So that is pretty much it for other blogs. I’ve been really busy this week … :/ I am definitely planning on catching up with other blogs tonight! Readers in Wonderland and Lost in Lit, here I come!
BUT I did watch some BookTube! I’m not going into specific videos (because how to pick), but I’ll definitely recommend some of my favorite BookTubers:
They are all very entertaining and fun, I highly recommend you check them out :)

The goal is to complete 17 challenges within two months (June and July) … and participants get to enter in an end-of-readathon giveaway with ERIN WATT!!
You heard it … GIVEAWAY!!! They agreed to put up a copy of their newest release, When It’s Real for all you lovely participants :) Check out the information post for more information on how to participate!
So my (7-year-old not quite anymore) puppy got a hair cut! She’s always had an amazing amount of hair – it’s insane how much hair she actually had. It was like 30% her body weight (probably more). She could lay outside in -3 degrees on the snow and not feel it through her hair. So we gave her a haircut and now she looks like an adorable lamb!
Isn’t that amazing? She legit looks like a lamb now. I came home from work and was completely shocked. It’s so cute!!! <3
