Coffee & a Chat – Cat Papers

Good morning folks. It’s your favorite person, the perpetually tired Cupcakes & Machetes. I’m here to ask you; Does WordPress get more and more stupid to use every time you log on?

Because it feels that way to me.

Not really a lot going on here. Just trying to recover from one the worst work weeks I’ve had in a long time and I have mid-terms for Accounting coming up this week so it might be quiet here for a moment.

I’m VERY slowly making my way through Pet Sematary for a buddy read with Ms. Moth.

Picked up a couple of ebooks for very cheap:

$1.99

$0.99

Mr. C&M and I are all caught up on Attack on Titan now until January. I’m not sure what our next watch will be.

We have a vacation coming up in July and I cannot wait. We need to escape for a bit and do some exploring and just plan old have fun.

I hope everyone else’s week was better than mine. ❤

Coffee & a Chat – Study Buddy

Zelda cheering me on.

It’s actually well past coffee time. Although, I’ve met people that coffee time is also 10 pm. However, for myself, if I drink it anytime after 5 pm, I’m up half the night. It’s approaching dinner time here, I meant to post this earlier, but I decided to do schoolwork first and that led to hours of frustration.

I’m good now. I didn’t realize I was missing a whole section of my digital textbook/workbook, now I know why it took so long to be successful with my homework. I DIDN’T HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION.

Now that I have that figured out, I’m going to start all over again and get back on track.

It’s only been one week since I started school but I can foresee this is my life now lol. Work, school, finishing bathroom and then sometimes, there might be room for other stuff.

Currently reading:

Currently watching: Mr. C&M and I just started this for the first time and we are invested after only 6 or 7 episodes.

Did you get your taxes done on time?! We turned ours in months ago and still haven’t received anything. Sounds like that’s par for the course this year though.

Coffee & a Chat – From Novels to Textbooks

First book haul of 2021. All from the dollar store. A whopping $3.18 was spent.

I didn’t accomplish much this week aside from working. No new recipes, no book reviews. Hell, I barely even read the current book I’m working on. I’m a bit ‘meh’ on it currently and don’t know if I’ll finish it.

There were a few other things accomplished though;

I received my second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. This time, the side effects kicked my ass. Super sleepy, achy, hot flashes and cold sweats (no fever though) and a minor headache. I felt like an old woman going through menopause. I started feeling super tired the night of the vaccine, didn’t sleep too well and felt like garbage for about 12 hours the next day. The day after that, I felt normal again. 10/10 would do it again though.

As of this morning, I applied to go back to college. There is a recent initiative provided by my state for adults to go back to school to earn a degree where they pay for your tuition fees. Years ago, I went to community college with the intention of getting a degree in small business administration. For a myriad of reasons, I never finished. Now, I’m going back to earn a degree in business administration – associate of arts. The way I see it, it will help the small business that I currently work for and any future enterprise I may start myself. (see last post.)

I should start back to school in May so I’m sure you’ll see a decline in posts then but I’m hoping to be more organized and be able to balance life and school better than I did back in the day.

So that’s it for this week folks, did anyone else get the first or second dose of the Covid vaccine? What were your side effects if anything?
