As I was thinking about ways I could share more about my productivity here, I realized that I often make really minor strides on my goals – so minor I don’t think they warrant an entire post. But these minor updates turn into the entire project over time. So I was thinking I could do a weekly update to share my news on the weekends.
Without further ado, here’s what I’ve gotten done this week:
I just got back my grades for last semester. My GPA was exactly the same as the last semester I got grades (Fall 2020). Honestly, given that everything was entirely online and I really didn’t embrace every class – not mentioning names but it rhymes with Shomonstitutional Law – I was just happy to pass and be done with it.
But on the upside, I’ve been getting interviews left and right, this week alone I have 6, possibly 7 interviews. It’s overwhelming, but very exciting. I don’t want to reveal too much here since things are constantly subject to change, but it will be a very busy Zoom week.
I’ve really been embracing this one on my winter break. I live alone in a three-bedroom home and when my life is busy, my home gets messy. Seeing as last semester was the busiest time of my life, my house certainly reflected it. Winter break has led me to some much needed organizing. More on this soon.
This week, I began The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I have read the book before but it was in high school. It seems particularly relevant at this time in my life. One of my family members has been in critical condition and the fragility of life is something this book touches on. Oh, I also binge-watched all of Love Island last week, so vanity is another theme that’s been on my mind. All in all, this book couldn’t be more fitting to my current circumstances and I hope I can get deeper with it than when I was an angsty teen.
Since my last post, I haven’t done much other than try to start animating the balloon letters. It’s not going that well. My animations are looking really unnatural so I’m going to have to go back to the drawing board.
That’s all for this week. While I don’t have a concrete goal for next week, I’m hoping I have new updates on everything. What do you plan to get done this week? Let me know in the comments down below!
