How do you know if a mood swing is just a mood swing or something more than that? This week was not a great one, because mood swings.
I got almost nothing done nor did I want to. I just wanted to curl up binging on Netflix or sleep. And when I did actually pushed myself to do something, I found it real hard to focus and then I gave up.
I was just chalking it up to “a phase” but then a friend asked me to note down my mood swings and if it was becoming a pattern of some kind, because there has been a quite a few of them in the recent weeks. (Yes, I have some smart friends!)
So I have started to track my mood every day in my calendar since then. Fingers crossed, I will update you guys soon on how that goes. Anyway guys, mental health matters!
What I read this week
This was not a great reading week either, as I mentioned already. But on Tuesday I decided to do nothing but read.
I picked out Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel, because it was on my mobile and I didn’t have to move from my bed.
I really liked this one and I think it will be a great book for someone who is grieving over the loss of their beloved ones. It was deeper than the YA book it appears to be. I will try to get a review out soon.
I have started reading Surrounded by Idiots by Thomas Erikson, a non fiction about understanding people and trying to interact with others better. I am enjoying it as of now, fingers cross.
What I watched this week
I finished watching the Korean drama series “Romance is a bonus book.
I loved that it is set in a publishing house, the male lead is a writer/author and almost every character loved books and reading.
I also started watching Chilling adventures of Sabrina Season 4. And I am on the fence about it. I liked it but it seemed like an anthology. I love (some of) the characters so much that I could overlook most of the cons. Sadly, another good series that ends in 2021!
