Week Notes #6

Sunday, November 25 to Friday, November 30

Joe and I started watching Limitless (the TV show) together, and I have to say it's really good! He actually watched it by himself first, but he knew I'd like it so now he's re-watching it with me. Each episode is very packed, in a good way. Case in point: I thought we were on the last episode of the season but when I went to check, it was only the SIXTH one. It follows this guy named Brian Finch who is given a drug that allows him to use every neuron in his brain. It has deadly side effects, which he begins to experience, but a mysterious senator gives him an immunity shot—with strings attached, of course. He ends up working with the FBI, who gives him more of this drug to continue taking so he can help them, but they have no idea how he's immune. So I guess they're trying to figure out why he can handle this drug (and I say "I guess" because this part doesn't take up too much of the storyline, although I have a feeling it's going to blow up toward the end of this season) while Brian is solving cases with them. If you like White Collar, I think you'd like this show. It's a shame they cancelled it after the first season though. I guess I'll find out why soon?

I finally visited my local library! (The one I work at is farther away.) It takes me about twenty minutes to get there by foot, but I don't mind at all because the road there is actually a nice trail. It was a surprise—a good one—because you can't get this in the city. Which I've lived in my whole life. Normally, you have to take a car if you want to get somewhere like this. But now I can walk there! Add that to my happy list.

I tried to work on cleaning and organizing my desktop computer this past week in preparation for 2019 (yes, I am a "new year, new me" kind of person) but not much happened because it's littered with stuff I've saved to read. Mostly recent, but some from literally *years* ago. So it's not exactly unorganized ............ I guess the new goal now is to READ STUFF I'VE SAVED IN A TIMELY MANNER.

My reading is slowly getting back to normal. THE SLUMP IS LEAVING ME. I started a little bit of The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine and already in the first chapter, it feels like a fairy tale. Of course, I haven't continued since lol ... but at least I am thinking of the book positively, and I *am* looking forward to diving back in. But I finally have the Harry Potter boxed set, so I gotta get to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix first!!!

BOOKS I FINISHED RECENTLY
