Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets to brag about what I accomplished last week. (Hint: not a lot.)
You know, this whole work full-time + full-time grad student thing is kicking my butt. Seriously. I mean, I’m keeping my grades up, but it’s taking a lot of work. And my job is not exactly a walk in the park…Anyway.
My purple jew plant is sporting one tiny flower these days:
(I actually have no idea what this plant is called, but that’s what my mom calls it. It’s pretty, and practically indestructible.)
I love getting books in the mail. Especially free books!
I reviewed The Bear and the Nightingale when it came out, and the publisher offered me a hardback of it, plus an ARC of The Girl in the Tower if I’d review it as well. Aren’t the covers gorgeous? I highly recommend reading the first one, and I’m sure I’ll love the second one, too.
This week, I also read Murder, Magic, and What We Wore and The Blackbird Season. I’ll be reviewing both soon, but I enjoyed them both—for very different reasons.
The Saint and I went on an adventure Saturday to Pho District, which is in the 7th Street area of Fort Worth, with lots of hipsters and trendy restaurants, bars, and shops. I scored a Groupon a while back, then forgot about it, until I got a reminder that it was about to expire. She’d never had pho before, but I’ve been a fan.
We got the Crispy Eggrolls:
and the Dry Pho Bo:
The food was fantastic, and the staff was great as well. Definitely worth checking out.
Apart from work and school, that’s all I accomplished last week.
One thought on “week in review: flowers and pho”
Knowing your work schedule and the amount of assignments you have for grad school, I have no idea how you manage to do anything else all week. And here you are reading books and dining on pho. Good for you. You’re a rock star.
