The Weekly Hufflepuff #54 | More Period Talk Still Not Sorry Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

GUESS WHO CAUGHT A COLD IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER

I wish I could say ‘not me!’ but alas it’s me. I have really bad luck lmao

I finished Heroine Complex and hope to write my review later today, though I’m not sure if that means I’ll have it up sometime this week. It all depends on when I’ll be able to take a picture of the book. I also started and finished Ps. I Still Love You by Jenny Han and It’s Not Like It’s A Secret by Misa Sugiura so I need to step up my reviewing game haha. I finished the latter last night, just in time to get started on my tbr for The Reading Quest.

On Monday I went out with a friend so I could take a new profile picture for her (I’ve become everyone’s private photographer lol) and to catch up of course. She also needed return something she had ordered online – whenever we meet up she has to return something so it has become an inside joke haha. The weirdest thing happened though – as we were walking down the street I suddenly noticed a girl who looked like one of our other friends, and then I realised itΒ wasΒ her. And then I noticed the other girl who was our other friend haha. Back in secondary school it was always the four of us, but while I’ve kept in touch with all of them and still saw them from time to time, it’s been a little over a year since we were all together. And then later in the day we ran into one of them again!

On Tuesday I went out to work and write some articles for work’s Tumblr, feeling really energised until the next day I woke up with a sore throat. I was really, really hoping it was just hay fever, but when I still had it the next day I knew it probably wasn’t. And sure enough on Friday I woke up barely being able to breathe. At this point I had also gotten my period so I’m really starting to think my body hates me. The weather here is constantly changing here though (like always) so it’s really easy to catch a cold, especially when your resistance is bad like mine is around the time of my period. I’ve been taking medicine and nose sprays regularly though, and I’m feeling a lot better today, at least in the cold departement haha.

I also worked a bit on Friday, but that was really short so when I got home I immediately laid down and watched The Bold Type. Which is so good!! Definitely recommend it. Other than The Bold Type I’ve only seen the newest Teen Wolf – I still need to catch up on Shadowhunters and The Fosters. Am I the only one who’s not really enjoying Teen Wolf 6B so far?? The first two episodes were so boring (though there were things that I liked!) and I hate how it barely focused Scott, Lydia and Malia.

The Weekly Hufflepuff #53 | I Talk About Periods So… Sorry Not Sorry

THE NETHERLANDS WON THE EUFA WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP

At all the sexist men who said women can’t play football, they wouldn’t even be able to beat amateurs etc etc… EXCUSE ME WERE WAS OUR NATIONAL MEN TEAM LAST YEAR OH YEAH NOT EVEN QUALIFIED

I was really tired and not feeling well this week, so most of the time I didn’t feel like reading. Until yesterday, when I suddenly made a lot of progress in Heroine Complex. I’ve read a lot today too, and maybe I’ll finish it tonight. Depends on whether I’d rather read or blog. While I don’t want to get too far into it until I’ve finished it, I’m really enjoying it!

In other reading news, I’ve been clearing my Goodreads to read shelf. There are quite a few books I have no longer any interest in, but also books that I have no idea why I added them in the first place? I don’t see past, present or future Michelle interested in these? I am confused, but also like a weight lifted off my shoulder with all those books gone *she says as she adds 10000 more books*

As I already mentioned, I was tired and not feeling so well. First I ran out of my hay fever medicine during the weekend, meaning I had to order them on Monday and didn’t have them until Tuesday. Cue not being able to breathe while walking even a few steps outside. Which really ruined my trip to Stedelijk Museum with my mom. Though the exhibition we went to (it was the last week and neither of us had seen it yet) was… really disappointing? Not our thing at all. I love photography, but I guess Rineke Dijkstra is not for me *shrugs*

I also had the brilliant idea to continue taking my birth control pill three months in a row, thus skipping two periods because I really wasn’t feeling it and now my body is punishing me. I’d say don’t be like me but I know people who do this all the time?? A friend of mine just continues to take the pill for six months, gets her period and then continues to take it for another six months. HOW. I AM IN PAIN. MY BODY IS CONFUSED

So basically I haven’t been doing much rip. BUT I’M SEEING A FRIEND TOMORROW SO I’M EXCITED

I’m also hoping to actually go out more this week but who am I kidding I’m not even on my period yet and I’m already suffering

πŸ’›Β I talked about Zanele Muholi, a photographer and visual activist from South Africa who photographs the LGBTQI community in South Africa
πŸ’›Β I wrapped up July
πŸ’›Β I shared some snippets in which one of my characters teaches you how to flirt and another one is a blue cowΒ 
πŸ’›Β I reviewed The Upside of Unrequited which I’m honestly falling more and more in love with?? I might change my 4 star rating to a 5 star rating? As much as I loved it once I had finished it, I still didn’t love itΒ that much but,, now?? Lads I think I’m going to change it

πŸ’›Β Savannah talks about what makes a good book blog and shares some of her favourites
πŸ’›Β Alice has tips and a tutorial for using Edelweiss Plus
πŸ’›Β Inge teaches you how to fold your book into a heart or in ‘home’
πŸ’›Β It’s Angel’s fifth (fifth!!) blogoversary and she looks back on these past few years
πŸ’›Β Shannon shares her weird (but wonderful) bookish habits
πŸ’›Β Mia talks about why unhauling 30 books was the best decision she ever made
πŸ’›Β CW reviews Want by Cindy Pon so let her convince you to read it because it sounds really good and important
πŸ’›Β Em shares some LGBTQ+ music that she loves
πŸ’›Β And talks about all the art she saw in Bristol
πŸ’›Β Kira isn’t only celebrating her blogoversary, she’s also celebrating 100 followers so go increase that number because she deserves it
πŸ’›Β Hannah wonders if using good grammar is worth it
πŸ’›Β Ilsa interviewed Cait which was of course a really fun and hilarious interview because it’s CaitΒ 
πŸ’›Β Holly wrote a discussion post on the phrase ”well, at least you’re reading something”
πŸ’›Β Mikaela shares 10 of her most secretive bookish confessions
πŸ’›Β May celebrated her 6-month blogoversary (HOW HAS SHE BEEN BLOGGING FOR ONLY 6 MONTHS) and answered some questionsΒ 
πŸ’›Β And she shared 9 reasons why we bookworms shouldn’t be trusted which is a genius way for non-bookworms to leave us alone so we can read all our books in peace and quietΒ 

And that’s a wrap! Any great posts I missed this week? What have you been reading? Have you cleared your Goodreads tbr shelf and thought ‘…why’? Let me know in the comments!

The Monthly Hufflepuff: July

πŸ’›Β  My only reading goal is my Goodreads Challenge, which was originally 100 books, but since I completed that I changed it to 200. I’m now at 133 (ignore my widget I need to update it manually and I’m lazy)
πŸ’›Β  Okay so my first and most important writing goal was to just write, which I did this month! Yay me *claps*
πŸ’›Β ‘Finish at least one of my WIPs’ well, I’m making progress on it?
πŸ’›Β I changed my design a bit: new header, social icons, new photo, biography updated and with more emojis oh and this new yellow hearts instead of those dark blocks! So yay that’s one blogging goal completed. At least I won’t be a complete failure at the end of the yearΒ πŸŽ‰
πŸ’›Β  Another blogging goal was to blog more regularly again, which was definitely a succes this month. But we’ll see how the rest of the year goes haha
πŸ’›Β  I’m sort of caught up on reviews? At least I’m working on it
πŸ’›Β  Hahaha I’m not caught up on tags AT ALL
πŸ’›Β  I’m scheduling posts again so I’m on my way to become the Scheduling Queen again!
πŸ’›Β  I’m not as caught up on other people’s posts as I want to be, but I’m working on it
πŸ’›Β  And finally I have become more active in the blogosphere again!

Well would you look at that? A pretty good month for my goals

The Weekly Hufflepuff #52

Woop I finally reached 52 Weekly Hufflepuffs! I started this feature almost two years ago, yet I only reached a year worth of weekly wrap ups now haha #isuckasablogger

I made slow progress Anne of Windy Poplars again. I am enjoying it, but it’s so long and such a slow read. Plus I miss all the old characters and none of the new ones really jump out. I also felt the sudden urge to reread Anna and the French Kiss last night, which I finished this morning. Finally, I started Heroine Complex, but I can’t really say anything about it yet. I’m not far enough yet.

Last week I said I was planning on spending more time at home, which I did! I only went to work for a bit on Friday, but other than that (and doing some grocery shopping) I spent some well-deserved time at home. The last few weeks had been so busy, I really needed to just… not go anywhere lmao. That sounds incredibly lazy but I just needed to lie around, watch some tv shows, read books, write and blog.

Since I didn’t do much, I don’t have much to share here either haha.

Wow this section was completely unnecessary

BUT THIS SECTION IS NOT UNNECESSARY YAY

LOOK

Though I changed my goal again, this time to 10.000, I’m happy with the fact that I wrote, wrote a little more than 10k and withΒ what I wrote (which is obviously really important too). While I initially set out to write 25k, there was no way I would’ve been able too. Sure, I technically had the time or could’ve made it, but it would’ve tired me out (physically and mentally), and how would that do my writing any good?

I might share some snippets later this week depending on how I’m feeling. I just hope that I’ll be able to finish this novel this year. I’m going to need to come up with a plan haha

πŸ’›Β I finally got my review for Queens of Geek up (which reminds me I need to take a picture of The Upside of Unrequited so I can get that review up too ahhh)
πŸ’›Β I talked about the behaviour of some of the Supergirl cast members and why I had already stopped watching the show
πŸ’›Β I talked about why you should watch the Disney Descendants movies
πŸ’›Β And I also talked about why you should read Zodiac Starforce – lot’s of me trying to convince you guys to love the things I love haha

πŸ’›Β Marie shares her book blogger bucket list and honestly… same
πŸ’›Β Ilsa talks about 10 awkward blogging moments #relatable
πŸ’›Β Julianna talks about blogging organisation (and is actual blogging goals omg I want to be that organised)
πŸ’›Β Analee talks about 7 things all us bookworms wished we had known before becoming a bookworm
πŸ’›Β Lia did the 777 Challenge and thus shared some lines from her WIP
πŸ’›Β CW’s love for The Epic Crush of Genie Lo shines through her wonderful review
πŸ’›Β Elly talks about the next Doctor being a woman
πŸ’›Β Balie talks about 4 unique tropes she’d like to see more of
πŸ’›Β Fadwa talks about reviewing books outside your lane
πŸ’›Β Kat did The Writer’s Tag
πŸ’›Β May talks about reasons for unfollowing blogs
πŸ’›Β A.J. talks about what to do with problematic books you own
πŸ’›Β Beth talks about managing your expectations for hyped books
πŸ’›Β Mikaela wonders if you too get tired of seeing the same books around the blogosphere

And that’s another wrap! I don’t have anything scheduled for this week which makes me sliiightly nervous, but I’m definitely getting an Artsy Hufflehoe up tomorrow. I mean, it’s the last day of the month. I have no choice. Anyway, I doubt I’ll disappear, but I may not post three times which is my usual minimum. If I do disappear I hope I’ll be writing haha (watch me waste my time by marathoning shows instead).

How was your week? Any great blogposts that I didn’t list here? How’s Camp NaNo, or writing in general going? Let me know in the comments!

The Weekly Hufflepuff #51

GUYS GUYS GUYS DISNEY DESCENDANTS 2 IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE I’M IN LOVE I’M OBSESSED IT’S SO GOOD OH MY GOD

I cought up on some comics, started Giant Days (another comic) which I’m loving and made little progress in Anne of Windy Poplars. I’m not loving that one as much as the previous books, but it’s still fun. I’m just not a fast reader when it comes to e-books.

It was supposed to be really warm on Tuesday, so my mom wanted to go to the beach, but once we were finally ready to go and got outside it was pretty chilly so instead we went to do some shopping haha. I spent so much money that I’m putting myself on a ban. But it was so worth it; there was a sale at a comic book store and it was all so cheap

The three comics on the right are the ones I got for free with my purchase (welllll minus two that I threw away *hides* they weren’t really comics though, more like thin magazines with info on the comics? But they were Hydra Cap related and well… Nope). I’m not sure what I’ll do with The Walking Dead one since that doesn’t appeal to me at all but I’ll find it a good home. Underneath the Ms. Marvel issue there are 5 others. I’m so happy to finally have my own issues, even though I don’t have them all yet. Those hardcovers were both around 10 euros so?? How could I not take them with me??

I didn’t just buy comics though! I also got a new Totoro notebook, a Pikachu phonestrap, some new clothes (including a shirt with Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl on it), a moleskine planner which I’ve wanted for a while now and a new notebook that I’m in love with so I’ll shall show it soon.

On Wednesday we did go to the beach, though about two hours in it started to rain terribly even though they said it wouldn’t rain until later that evening (#dutchweatherbelike) so we ended up waiting inside for it to stop (and were joined by two old guys because I was stupid and wanted to sit on a comfy sofa and in the end I didn’t even get to sit on the comfy side because when I got back from the toilet they were sitting there :( I was debating with my mom whether or not I should get ice cream, one of them said ‘that’s not good for your diet’ where did I ask)Β The weather cleared up though and all in all it was a nice day.

If you follow me on Instagram you may notice that my hair had gotten pretty long

My hair was in a ponytail here so it was actually longer. Yep, past tense because on Thursday I got a haircut. My hair was just waaay too long. I could barely do anything with it and it was taking forever to wash and dry it. I tried looking for a picture where you can properly see how much shorter it is but I failed haha. It’s still long though! I’m just no Rapunzel anymore #rip

On Friday my mom, grandfather and I went to castle De Haar which was absolutely beautiful. Also as a history and castles nerd I loved every minute of it. Sadly we couldn’t see everything of it because my grandfather is a heart patient so he couldn’t walk through the entire castle and garden, and we didn’t want to leave him all by himself while we looked around since that’s a bit rude.

I may write a Travelling Hufflepuff about it (though maybe,Β maybe I should write those about London first #rip)

Finally, but definitely not least, DESCENDANTS 2 CAME OUT. You may not remember or maybe you weren’t following me back then, but back when the first movie came out I reviewed/fangirled about it.Β I have so much love for this franchise and this sequel? Spectacular. Even better than the first. Old and new characters shined (CHINA AND THOMAS WERE SO GOOD I’M IN LOVE), the soundtrack and choreography were even better than last time, the story was so much fun, the sets and costumes were on point and basically my obsession is even worse than last time. I hate that I Β have to wait two more years again haha (I really hope it won’t be more than two years).

I ACTUALLY WROTE. Not much, but I still wrote. Also changed my NaNo goal to 15.000 because there’s no way I’m going to be able to write 25.000. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to reach 15.000 either, since my month has been a lot busier than expected, but I’m planning on taking it a bit easier this week and spend more time writing, blogging and reading. I need some time relaxing at home haha.

Oh also I started planning a new novel hahahahaha

And that’s a wrap! How has your week been? What have you been reading? HAVE YOU SEEN DESCENDANTS 2Β 

The Weekly Hufflepuff #50

I usually try to avoid posting multiple times a day, but I couldn’t post my wrap up yesterday and I had already scheduled today’s post so *shrug*

I finished The Upside of Unrequited (which was ADORABLE and SO MUCH FUN) and also finally, after years of being on my tbr, I got a copy of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and finished it. And now I’m regretting not getting the sequels

I’m really behind on reviews, but hopefully I’ll get to them this week

Last week was so busy – I barely had any time for myself and I’m quite amazed that I managed to post on here three times? I didn’t write at all though rip.

On Monday I met up with my friend from uni who I’ve mentioned before by calling her Batman (that’s what she’s called in my phone – I’m Robin in hers). We went to a few different places in the city where we took lots of photos and just had fun.

When an old lady offers to take a picture of the both of you and this happens

After that I had to go to work and the next day I met up with another friend and ate Italian (and she recruited me as her personal photographer as well haha).

On Wednesday I FINALLY got to see the two giant pandas at Ouwehands Dierenpark (a Dutch zoo). The giant panda has been my favourite animal ever since I was small (which may come as a surprise to some of you who know about my pug obsession haha) so you can imagine my excitement when I learned two of them would be coming and staying here for the next ten years.

On Thursday I managed to write quite a few blogposts before I was off for work – it was our last Thursday together which we only found out that day. I’ve mentioned before that I’m a Blikopener at the Stedelijk Museum: Blikopeners is a group of teenagers (unless the 19 year olds like me turn 20 during the year haha) who help make the museum more accessible for youth by giving feedback, tours, help organise workshops and events etc. Every year they pick a new group though and the old groups become alumni. Meaning you can still give tours, help/organise workshops and events and such, but you’re not at the museum every week anymore and it’s not the entire group together anymore. We were supposed to have one Thursday left, but since our boss is sick and no one can fill in for her it was cancelled.

Which brings me to Friday, which was the selection day for the new group. Pretty much everyone who had filled in the form, didn’t live too far away from Amsterdam and wasn’t too old got invited and were divided into groups and us Blikopeners observed them, asked and answered questions and set them to work so they could show what they’re capable of. By the end of the night we all picked our favourites from our group (which was so difficult!! I got attached to all of them and since I’m 20 and thus older than all of them I kind of saw them as my younger siblings or something haha) and then… It was kind of over? We still had our group outing on Sunday, but it still felt so weird to basically pick our own replacement even though most of us will continue to work there.

So on Sunday we had what was probably our last outing with the entire group (I’m skipping Saturday because I was exhausted from the previous day which had been so busy and hectic so I just watched Disney’s The Lodge all day haha) and oh my gosh I could cry once we all said our goodbyes (most of them at trainstations which is so clichΓ© but also I lowkey loved it haha). It felt SO weird. We had all grown so close over the year and I know I’ll definitely see some of them soon since we’re in the same workgroups, but we’ll most likely never be complete again and it definitely felt like an ending. It was a really fun outing though. First we had a picknick and caught up with our old boss who was also able to come (sadly our new boss couldn’t join us) and then we took the train to The Hague were we went to The Parade which is cultural festival full with performances were our ex-intern (meaning she assisted our old boss) who even after she left was still really involved (so it felt like she never really left haha) works so she took care of everything – tickets for performances, the carousel, food… It was so sweet of her. While the performances weren’t really my thing, I still had a lot of fun just being there with everyone (that sounded so cheesy omg)


That might have been the longest personal section I’ve ever done haha, but I really wanted to talk about it because being a Blikopener meant a lot to me – I’m thinking of writing a separate post about the past year as well, but we’ll see. I’ve thought of writing lots of posts that I still haven’t written yet rip

OH AND IN MY PERSONAL SECTION I USUALLY FREAK OUT ABOUT MY TV SHOWS SOOOO…. FEMALE DOCTOR ANYONE?!

Let’s skip the writing section shall we hahaha

Aaaand that’s a wrap! I feel like I’m really getting into the whole blogging thing again (though I should be careful with that because I feel like every time I said that this past year I disappeared again lmao) Anyway, how was your week? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT OUR FIRST FEMALE DOCTOR? Also does anyone have a petition to get Pearl to stay cause as excited I am about 13 I’m so not ready to say goodbye to Bill yet

The Weekly Hufflepuff #49

Since I wrapped up June last Saturday and didn’t do much that week anyway because of my neck and back pains, I decided to skip last week’s wrap up. This means I have even more blog posts from the community to share though! I have this kind of insane idea of wanting to read all the posts I missed, which I know is impossible but I’m gonna try anyway haha. Wish me luck

These last two weeks I caught up a bit on DC Bombshells (I’m still very behind even though I love it a lot? There are just so many other things to read and do though!), read the newest issues of Brave Chef Brianna, Ms. Marvel, Gotham Academy and America, finished Kindred Spirits, Queens of Geek and The Hate U Give and started The Upside of Unrequited.

Sooo I didn’t really do anything last week since I was in so much pain that it gave me a headache and made me nauseous. I felt much better this week though! On Tuesday I finally bought a new camera with my birthday money and I’m in love.

This also led to me making a new instagram account and blog. Obviously I’ll continue to blog here, but that blog is for my photography.

On Wednesday my mom and I went to the Efteling, a fairytale-themed themepark which was a lot of fun. I might write a separate Travelling Hufflepuff on it.

This week I also finally got around to cleaning up my room. I’m usually a pretty organised person, but my room was a mess this last term, as I was either too busy with school or too tired because of school. I also got around to re-organising my shelves and I’m thinking of maybe doing a bookshelves tour post.

Today I went to the Stedelijk Museum with my mom, to check out the Zanele Muholi exhibition. I talked about her before in my Artsy Hufflehoe Pride Edition and I most likely will talk about her again in this month’s edition haha.

I’m doing Camp Nano again this year and it’s going… umm.. *nervous laughter* So I didn’t write at all last Saturday as I wasn’t really feeling well, but I did write on Sunday and Monday. After that… IΒ did have the time to write technically, but I just ended up doing other stuff that I wanted and needed to do instead? Oh well the month isn’t over yet and I may still write tonight. Right now I’m at 2913 words and my goal is 25,000. Jeepers.

Here are some Tweets from when I was writing:

I’m so happy that I get to share some amazing posts from the blogosphere again! Time to spread some love:

Are there any posts you read this week that I MUST read? Let me know in the comments!

And that’s a wrap! How has your week been? Are you reading, writing, enjoying your holiday? What are you all up to? Let me know in the comments!
