The Weekly Progress: Sleepless Nights Edition

The Weekly Progress is a type of wrap up post that happens every Sunday on The Sirenic Codex looking on the week that was.

I can't remember a week where I slept less that doesn't include a vacation halfway across the world. It was a strange combination of school work, illness, and preparing for our school's Oscar Night. Needless to say I spent absolutely no time on the blog, but hopefully the upcoming week will be better.

Books Read

I have a review written. That's all I'll say. 

Currently Reading

So far, it's pretty interesting. I'm curious about the story. 

On the Blog

I reviewed More Than This, which I ended up enjoying. 

Mari picked Messenger of Fear as her WoW. It's Michael Grant so I totally approve.  

Mari then reviewed the book I'm currently reading at her insistence, Mistress of Rome.

Lastly, I posted about the ways books can teach. In particular, how I learned about depression after reading Hyperbole and a Half.

The Week That Was

So, let's start with the sad part: two of my goldfish died. I tried really hard to take care of them and I don't know what happened. They died about a week after I got them. I named them Edgar, Allan, and Poe. Only Edgar is left. RIP Allan and Poe. 

I worked really hard for my school's Oscar Night, and I think it was a success. I don't really know though because my favourite part of the big day was when it was all over and I could go to sleep. I'm one of those people that needs a lot of sleep time, having about six hours of sleep every day of the week killed my normally eight hour routine. 

I have hopes that this week will be better, but I'm expecting lots of evaluations this week. At least school is almost over!

Song of the Week

This week I discovered the magic that is Borgeous! He has some really huge songs, and this one, Stampede, is definitely among my favourites.  Check out this INSANE mix with like a billion artists of it!

Hope you all had a great week!


  1. Oooh, I hadn't seen Tandem before and now I'm interested to see what you'll say. So sorry your goldfish died! I hope you're mostly recovered from your illness. Always enjoy your songs of the week; they broaden my musical horizons excellently. :)

    1. To be honest I think Song of the Week is probably why I do most of these posts. I adore picking a song and I know that most people probably don't listen to it (thanks though for doing it!) but it's so fun to go through a bunch of new songs and pick just one that I really hope other people can enjoy. :)


  2. Aww, I'm sorry to hear about Allan and Poe.
    I hope you can recover some lost sleep this coming week!

    1. I definitely did thanks! And RIP Allan and Poe. :(


  3. Ha. Your goldfishes' names. Win. Sorry two of them died, though. :( Anyway, here's to sleeping!
