Sunday Post #2: Work Sucks


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 

It's been a long week at work and I'm so glad the week is over. It's so exhausting to work at a hotel that is literally fully occupied (to the point of being over sold) and every guest is just complaining about something. I am burnt out, ready for the summer to be over and ready to go back to school.

In other news, I'll be starting a new job as a private tutor which will allow me to cut my hours even more at the hotel. I'm really lucky this job fell into my lap because it will allow me to be really flexible with my schedule as I start my teaching program.

Currently Reading:



All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai: I just start this book the other day and I haven't had all that much time to read. I'm only about 100 pages in but it's pretty good so far and definitely a unique novel.

The Monet Murders by Terry Mort: I'm listening to this really fun murder mystery on audio book. It's an old Hollywood private eye story that takes place in 1934 that's pretty funny and engrossing.

Like I said, I am so glad this week is over. Since I'm taking two paid days off next week and we have some family coming into town, I'm hoping it's going to be a lot less stressful! Happy reading!

  5. That would be tough, I've stayed in hotels where I felt really bad for the staff before.

    I've heard good things about All Our Wrong Todays, and Taylor Jenkins Reid is an authot I've enjoyed too. Her Maybe In Another Life was good.
