The Weekly Hufflepuff #73 // I Got An Internship???

A day late but oh well

I wanted to post this yesterday but I was tired before I went out, then when I came back I was even more tired adgnjs

I FINALLY finished Ace of Shades and I’m pissed at my reading slump because I really did love it and I could’ve finished it so much faster?? I also finished Two Spells, which I reviewed on Goodreads. I didn’t enjoy that one at all, nor did I enjoy Honey, Baby, Sweetheart. It was free on Riveted (might still be? I don’t think this one is up for the entire month) and it had an interesting premise (abusive relationships, ‘kidnapping’ an old lady to reunite her with an old love and a road trip) but boyyyy it was a mess and so is my review on Goodreads thus why I’m not posting it here as well.

I finally read The Brightsiders (I have no idea why it took me so long considering Queens of Geek is one of my favourite books and this was one of my most anticipated releases?) and I loved it SO FRICKIN’ MUCH. The bi rep was amazing, just like in Queens of Geek, great relationships (platonic and romantic), abuse rep on point, anxiety rep, so much queer rep, multiple non-white characters (Chloe owns my heart I love my black bi non-binary child) and just?? It was everything? It’s SO QUEER I love it so much. Full review to come hopefully soon*

Lastly I’m rereading the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy before the movie comes out this Friday (!!) to sort of stay patient because I can’t wait for the movie I love this series so much

Oh and I started Sadie, since that’s coming out next month and I don’t want to read it at the last possible moment. I’m not that far in yet but so far I like it.

* No one remind me of all the books I read in June that I still haven’t reviewed hsjfdhsj

GUYS I GOT AN INTERNSHIP???? It’s at an art magazine and I’m just so excited!! I won’t be writing anything for the magazine itself as everything is planned and written far in advance so it’s not really do-able for me to write anything, but I may get to write something small. I will be writing for the website though, so that’s exciting too.

I also got a job??? As of this week I’ll be working at Ripley’s Believe it Or Not and I still can’t believe (haha see what I did there) I actually got hired?? I’ll still be working at the Stedelijk Museum when I can, but that was already freelance work anyway after my first year ended last Summer so I wanted something a bit more stable.

Other than that… I’ve been going out with friends and family, doing some fun stuff here and there, relaxing… I have terrible memory so I remember like 10% of it but last week I spend a few days at my best friend’s house since she lives at the other side of the country (which is not that far compared to most countries but it still a few hours away with the train and since we don’t get free transport during the Summer it’s not that easy to see each other. Highlights: my friend repeating ‘behhhh’ over and over again at goats, feeding cute baby goats, making edible cookie dough (and eating it duh), me sucking at Mario and Sonic at the Olympics (I’m so sorry I did you dirty Yoshi please don’t cry), eating THE BEST fries I’m in love why are they on the other side of the country and obviously just spending time with my friend. Other than that who knows what I did not me adbjhs This is why I try to do wrap ups each week but I’m lazy

  1. AAAAAAAAH!!! I am so happy for you :D I know how much of a win landing a job/internship (in your case even BOTH) can be, so I am very proud of you! You will rock your jobs and writing for online is very important these days, so I am sure you will get exposure :D

  2. Still so proud of you for getting an internship!!! And working at Ripley’s sounds so cool!! Thank you for linking my posts!! Makes me want to go back to Amsterdam even more πŸ˜₯πŸ˜‚

  3. Congrats on your internship, and your new job! I hope you have an amazing time at both of them.πŸ’“Ooh, I need to make edible cookie dough, because right now I’m just eating the unedible stuff?! So maybe I should try the kind you can actually eat haha. Also, thank you so much for linking back to my post, I’m really glad you enjoyed it!

    • Thank you!! So far the job has been fun :) Internship doesn’t start until September (which is soon ahhhhh) but I do think that while it will be nerve-wrecking and take up a lot of time, it will be fun in the end :)
      Ohhh you should! My friend found a recipe on Instagram (though I’m sure google has plenty) and it was really easy to make! You’re welcome, I loved reading it! ❀️

  4. ahh congrats on your job/internship! interning with an art magazine sounds so cool!
    I’ve also been feeling a bit reading slump-y lately. Over the weekend while I was at work I tried a novel in verse and a poetry collection to try something different to help with the slump but it made it worse because neither were very good, alas.

    I’m so so happy you liked The Brightsiders! It’s for sure one of my favorite books of the year; the bi rep is so good and all the queer rep is amazing in general as well. I haven’t read Queens of Geek yet but I’m hoping I’ll get to it before the end of the year.

    • Thank you! Ah no I’m so sorry to hear that :( Bad books can really make a slump worse. Hopefully your slump will be over soon!

      The Brightsiders is just so good ahhhh even better than I thought it would be. Hopefully you’ll be able to read Queens of Geek soon and enjoy that one as well :D

    • Haha I hope so too! It will definitely be a bit of a challenge at first, though I’m more worried about finding time to blog πŸ˜… I think I’ll just have to get used to things and find a way to make it work and not stress myself out too much!

  5. Omg YES Ace of Shades and the Brightsiders are both amazing, I’m so glad to hear that you loved them both as well! 😍 😍 😍 Congrats on the internship + job! I really need to start researching for me own internship next year πŸ˜…

    • Yessss I’m so happy that I finally read and loved them! Already looking forward to rereading both of them some point in the future haha
      Thank you! Ahhh good luck! Hopefully you’ll find something good :)
