Hey there! Happy Monday!

It’s already the start of the last week of the first month of this new year. Was that confusing? Play of words aside, how has January been for you? Was it great? Just fine? Bad? Mine was just fine, I guess. It was neither good nor bad and I’m actually just okay with that. Of course, that’s not counting the fact that I’ve been sick for two weeks with the flu, which sucked, but, yeah, January was an okay month.

I recently finished Melanie Dickerson’s The Warrior Maiden and Jessie Mihalik’s Polaris Rising, which I already reviewed (here’s the link.) I enjoyed these two books a lot and can’t wait for it to come out so many more people gets to enjoy them. I also started reading Veronica Roth’s Carve the Mark, a book that has been languishing on my TBR for more than a year now, and Tara Conklin’s newest The Last RomanticsI’m hoping to finish the latter sometime before the end of the month since the book is coming out next Tuesday, and I would love to have my review of it up before it releases. Keeping my fingers crossed for that!

This Monday has been relatively easy for me. I’m actually feeling kind of nostalgic, so I broke out an old favorite album by one of the band’s I loved when I was in college.

I just kind of missed this song! And Augustana! The band hasn’t released any new material for a couple of year now. I’m not even sure if they’re still together, but I still love their songs and play them from time to time. This one actually played right when I was getting out of the building where our offices are located. The wind was cool and my hair was all over the place because it escaped my hair tie again, and I just couldn’t stop myself from singing along while I walk to the shuttle. I got a few stares, but who cares. They could sing along too if they like.

Anyway, that’s it for me today. I’m going to finish some CME videos (got to keep up with the clinical trends and new knowledge) then I’ll go back to reading. Here’s me wishing you a lighthearted Monday, maybe even better than mine.

Music Mondays: “Boston” by Augustana

Look at that! It’s Monday again!

I totally forgot to do Music Monday last week. There was an emergency at work, and I went on to remedy it. I guess it occupied more of my mind than I thought it did.

Anyway, here I am again, back with a new song pick. It’s been raining a lot the past couple of weeks where I am. I don’t know about you, but rainy days makes me feel melancholic. Today’s pick is one of the songs I’ve been listening to (again) the past couple days.

Boston is probably one of the songs that defined my post-graduation years. I’ve always been a better student. For years, I followed rules and routines, and, I guess, after graduation, I kind of just felt lost without those rules and routines. I felt out of control, unsure, and I questioned myself to no end. Needless to say, my early 20s up to the middle of my late 20s were some of my toughest years.

Things are a little bit better know. Some days I even think I have mastered adulthood. (Nope. Not a chance. You just get by, and fake it til you make it.) But I always look back to those post-grad years every time I feel down, if only to remind me how far I’ve already come.

Okay…that was a bit heavy. 😬😬😬 I’m sorry if I overshared. I blame the rain.

If you want some more, here’s my rainy days playlist. It’s totally stuck in the early 2000s because most of my favorite songs were released in those years. Hope you enjoy it.

💗💗💗
