End of the Week Wrap-Up #4

weekly wrap up

Yay! A post that isn’t about music or poetry!

Just kidding, I’m loving both Blogging Uni: Poetry 201 and An Overthinking Song Challenge. Anyway, onto my first wrap up for a couple of weeks…

On The Blog:

As I mentioned, I’ve been busy participating in a couple of challenges, so they’ve made up the majority of my posts, although I have managed to sneak in a couple of others…

Elsewhere On The Internet:

On Instagram, I posted a picture of my 200 WordPress followers notification…THANK YOU!!! I also shared mine and a friend’s beautifully crafted chocolate and raspberry layer cake…hopefully more about that in a post to come!

My Twitter account really took off this week, as I found a bunch of other bloggers, which was really nice…lots of the blogs I follow seem to have just got Twitter, so I feel like I’m getting to connect with bloggy people outside of my blog, which is awesome!

Books

Reading-wise, I went a bit crazy last Wednesday in town…I got out about 8 books, as well as buying my new favourite T-shirt from Primark (it says “This is what awesome look like” on it and I LOVE it!) and a beautiful swirly-patterned clock. As I also got a load of books passed down to me from my sister, I’m hoping to do my first ever ‘Stacking the Shelves’ sometime over the next week or so!

Other Bloggy Things

I’ve literally just finished reading a post on Teddy’s New Bear about ‘Things I Wish I’d Been Told At GCSE’. As I’m doing my first year of GCSEs at the moment, I reckon some of these tips will be pretty helpful! Appletaile was lucky enough to meet Malorie Blackman and Patrick Ness in the flesh – even though I don’t know many of their books, I know of them as authors and getting to meet them must have been awesome! Morgan EXACTLY mirrored my feelings about Lauren Aquilina and her music, and over at Blurt there was a brilliant Academy Awards winners prediction post.

Oh, and I got myself a signature!

I’m back to school after a week off for half term tomorrow, so I’m going to leave this here…hope you had a great week!

An Overthinking Song Challenge: February 16th

Wow, this challenge has gone seriously quickly so far! Just a few quick notes before we get on to today’s prompt:

I haven’t done a weekly wrap-up for this week – I may do one tomorrow, but it’s unlikely as I only posted for this challenge and am now busy also doing the Poetry 201 course!

As I previously mentioned, I’m participating in Poetry 2o1, so be prepared to see lots of different poems over the coming couple of weeks! I’ll try and add in a couple of other posts to switch it up a little, but be prepared for lots of song choices and poems!

Anyway, on with the main business for today…

30 Day Song Challenge- Books, Tea and a (1)

Hmm, a song from a movie soundtrack. I really like Etta James ‘A Sunday Kind of Love’,which I believe appears in The Other Woman (fave film!), although I don’t think there’s an official soundtrack for that. I also really like the TFiOS soundtrack, especially Birdy’s ‘Tee Shirt’ and ‘All Of The Stars’ by Ed Sheeran, as well as obviously ‘Boom Clap’ by Charli XCX (though I think the others deserve the same amount of attention Boom Clap got). Oh, and obviously ‘Let It Go’ and ‘Do You Want To Build A Snowman?’ from the Frozen soundtrack!

How about you?

Some of my favourite posts from this week included Appletaile’s thoughts and experiences on worrying about weight, Elly’s first ever weekly wrap up (woo! You’ve joined the club!), Camila’s nomination post for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award, Nichola’s post where she talked about sunsets in the UK compared to Singapore, Emily’s blog-o-versary post and Hermionefowl’s review of The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell.

Most of my week has been preoccupied with maths revision for a test tomorrow and rehearsals for my school’s production of six of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, using the Carol Ann Duffy adaptation. It finished its two-night run last night, and I had such a great experience doing sound on the technical desk. Plus, of course, the added bonus of the headmaster giving the tech desk ice cream at the interval for both shows! The rest of the cast and crew were seriously annoyed…

How has your week been?
