Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.
Happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad that it’s finally Friday. This week lasted for at least 8.5 days and you can’t tell me different.
The main reason my week was long is partly due to me starting a new job. I was supposed to only be there 2 days this week, but I ended up going in three days. It’s only been a few days, but so far, it’s been good. However, what made me so tired is that I have to figure out and get used to this new and different schedule. FYI, this is why posting was off over here this week.
I’ve been working for myself and from home for less than 2 months and I can’t believe how accustomed I got to not having to go to an actual office. However, having the desire and need to be in an actual working environment is the reason that I took this position. I didn’t realize just how important it is to work with others on a daily basis to help keep me sane and thriving. Now, I know!
It’s only part-time and I’m not scheduled to be there until Wednesday. So, I need to work on writing and prepping posts over these next couple of days. Plus, I need to also catch up on some housecleaning, because I forgot to change my sheets on Sunday and Monday. I’m so ashamed.
Since it’s supposed to be cloudy and/or rainy most of the weekend, it will be the perfect mood to light some incense, find a good 90s R&B playlist, and clean like it’s nobody’s business. What are your plans for this weekend? Share below. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this week’s reads as much as I did.
