Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

Adulthood is a Myth (and one more) | Quick Reviews


Adulthood is a Myth: This is essentially a book of drawings / scribbles on some of the author's experiences. Some of them were outright hilarious, some were more observational, while others were just meh. There were several that I liked a lot and I went crazy on Litsy sharing them. Definitely recommended, especially if you are looking for a fun read that won't take more than half an hour.




The Trouble With Women: This is a quick satirical look at all kinds of condescending remarks made by male "geniuses" who thought they could explain why there are not enough famous or talented women, especially in STEM. I initially started reading it as an amusing take on the history of men's comments on women, and although the entire book is written in a tone of jest, there were several eminent men that I lost my respect for, including Darwin and Baron Pierre de Coubertin. This is yet another coffee table book that was quick to read.
