I am glad to say I got my first dose of COVID Vaccination done this week and I have not been feeling any different since then. I was warned of some headache or other flu vaccine kinda symptoms, but fortunately I didn’t have any of those either.
My second dosage would on second week of February (21 to 28 days from the first one) and I can’t wait to have that one too.
It is disheartening to hear that people, even my own friends, are hesitant to have the vaccine even when they are free here in UAE. Apparently, they want to wait for more information and time “because these vaccines came too early”. Obviously they came early, because the scientists are busting their asses to get it done for us. Sigh.
As much as I want to not comment about it, it is getting really hard not to.
What I read this week
This week was fairly good to me in terms of reading, though that did stop me from doing other things on my list.
- The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
- Duke and I, The (Bridgertons, #1) by Julia Quinn
And I am currently reading Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple, which has been on my TBR for a long time. As I promised to myself earlier this year, I would focus on clearing my TBR shelf rather than adding more to it, so that is what I am doing for now.
What I watched this week
Last week I watched Wonder woman 1984. Despite a few glaring plot holes, I actually enjoyed watching Wonder woman and Gal Gadot. Yay for more female filmmakers and superheroes.
Paranoid on Netflix was another series that I watched this week and it was meh at the best. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to.
What are you guys watching this week?
