Sunday Salon: Where Does the Time Go?

Time // 8:15 PM EDT

Howdy, ho friendly readers! The past couple weeks have been a blur, things are busy at work and at home. Two weeks ago I second-chaired a particularly nasty trial against a particularly nasty defense attorney. Last week I had usual court things to do as well as prepping for a trial that will likely go sometime next week. The week after that I leave for Europe for two weeks, when I come back I’ll have to hit the ground running again because I’ll be up for jury trials again.

I went to see a regional production of Lin Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights on Friday and it was surprisingly excellent. I was extremely pleased and can definitely recommend The Aurora Theatre in Gwinnett County.

At home, The Girl starts kindergarten tomorrow so there have been the usual school prepping for her with handwringing from The Husband (Dad) and Grandmother. I’m sure she’ll be fine.

Around the blog, I’ve created a login for Katie who will start making posts as she feels the need, so get ready  for a new voice, y’all! I’ll wait for her to get up and running before I say more.

How was your week, Reader?

Sunday Salon: Hamilton Edition

Posted 22 November, 2015 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in blogging, memes


Listening // to Hamilton. I’m practically totally obsessed with this musical. Shannon at River City Reader and I even started a quirky Tumblr about it. Elect Hamilton. It’s a crazy mashup between the Hamilton musical and the 2016 American Presidential elections. Apparently the Hamilton musical and Harry Potter mashed up is a thing too, Tumblr’s a weird place.

Finished up // with a game night with co-worker friends. We started tame with a game of ‘Encore’ which is a board game circa 1987 that involves music. Ended, naturally, with a completely magically horrific game of Cards Against Humanity. Goooood times.

Game Night!

Game Night Selfie!

Reading // Getting over my reading slump. Knocked out about four books in the past week, I also feel as if I might be getting some blogging mojo back, but I don’t want to say that too loud for fear of jinxing myself. I’m still six books behind on my Goodreads goal, but I’m hoping I can knock some out during all of my downtime. (I have no downtime.)

Cannot be trusted with // Star Wars merchandise. Seriously, this news that Disney plans on putting out one Star Wars movie a year until people stop buying tickets could be terrible news for my checkbook. I totally have a thing for Darth Vader. Nothing you can say will stop me.

So it’s been a pretty good week. How was yours, Reader?
