Weekly Wrap-Up: Look, I Might Have Kidnapped Clo

Posted August 5, 2018 by Sophia

weekly wrap up

I can’t believe there’s less than a month left before I have to start classes again. 😂 I feel like I was a freshman starting college yesterday. 😲

Also I have kidnapped Clo from Cuppa Clo forever and she has sold her soul to me.

She did not actually sell her soul – she’s kindly volunteered to help Lupe and me reformat our old posts and I can’t thank her with books so I gave her a free pass to contribute as she pleases.

(I don’t know how I deserve a wonderful bean in my life and I don’t know how else to thank her. 😭😭😭)

This Week’s Posts

Book Haul

We’re still behaving.

Real Life


I spent most of my week messing with Wix and creating a portfolio for myself – something I started on Blogger two years ago, moved it to WordPress a few months ago…

I have a love/hate relationship with what I want on my own site. 😭 Maybe Wix will be the last??? I seem to be having better luck with it.

I’ve also found out that while my wrist is completely fine, it’s not going to be the same – I won’t be able to do anything for a long period of time without it aching. Hello, better time management skills must happen now.

No more writing that 12-page paper two days before. 😝 (Okay, I start a week before but it’s an outline with my ramblings. It doesn’t count.)


I honestly forget to stop by weekly. Oops. I finished my finals last week! It was MISERABLE. I also accomplished a lifetime goal. I GOT AN A IN CALCULUS! I DID IT! I MAINTAINED MY GPA!

I decided to go on a ‘staycation’. This means that I won’t be working for the next two weeks. I will be spending time with friends these upcoming days. As well as getting things together for the upcoming semester. I had to work 60 hours this week in order to make up the days I will be missing from work in my ‘staycation’. I am completely burnt out. I’m ready to FINALLY finish reading the Harry Potter series.

Let’s talk, bookwyrms: do you use Wix? What do you think of it? Do you find cleaning up posts difficult?

Sophia has a GIF for nearly everything and is frequently in a Hogwarts House crisis. Unlike her personality in blog posts, she's a socially awkward recent college grad who majored in Communications. More of her bookish reviews can be found at The Arts STL.

  1. It is hard to believe it’s almost school time already! This summer has flown! Good luck with Wix though- and yay for calculus! I’m not sure it would be possible for me to get an A in calculus lol.

    Have a super week you guys- enjoy the staycation!!

    I hate that you’re in pain, and sure hope that it does continue to improve, Sophia. Anyone who can do technical stuff is a friend in my book, so kudos to you! Lupe – that’s a HUGE deal with the calculus! Kudos! Hugs and Happy Sunday! RO

  3. Not sure what WIX is. LOL So much out there now. My old posts are terrible and I try to go back and fix them but so many. I hope the pain in your wrist becomes manageable and congrats on the GPA!

  4. Wow, great job with calculus. I’m so bad at math that I had to transfer to a different college that had fewer math requirements. I wouldn’t have been able to graduate from the school I was attending because I couldn’t pass math. Have a great week!

  5. I don’t use Wix, but I switched from Blogger to WordPress a couple months ago and it’s been a pain working out design kinks, especially with older posts. I’ve also been figuring out how to structure posts, but it’s been getting easier as I go. I usually work from the template of an older post.

  6. Outside of Blogger, I only have experience with Weebly (which was not terrible). For now, I am going to stick to my comfortable little corner in Blogger even though I have been thinking about switching to WordPress (despite all of the stressful stories Sophia shares). I love how WordPress blogs look and the amount of customization (especially everything you guys have done with yours!), but I just cannot do it now. Anyway, good luck with Wix and I hope you both have a great August!

    Also, Clo if you are reading this, I hope you get out soon! I am rooting for you!

  7. Ahh! Clo sounds like an AMAZING friend. Lucky you!

    I’m surprised to see no book haul! Wow! Well done!

    Also, STAYCATIONS ARE THE BEST! We have a long weekend coming up with 2 days off and I’m considering just chilling at home….

    Dear Sophia! Just want to warn you – I was so disappointed using Wix, they have a good promo though. I changed my blog platform to WordPress, it’s much more useful, plugins are great there. I used CMS2CMS service helped to move my blog automatically
