Weekly Joy Reflection

A gift from my Dad

I received a package in the post this week from my dad.

He commissioned a shirt for me and posted it. It’s such a good fit and so comfy to wear. It’s my favourite colour and:

  1. There is a cat
  2. There are books
  3. The cat’s glasses match mine!

I’m so pleased with it and it’s definitely going into my regular rotation.


I’ve been using a PopSocket on my phone for a few months now. It makes holding my phone so much more comfortable.

PopSockets look simple – and they are! They function really well and there is so much choice when it comes to the different designs you can get for them.

Essentially, you can attach them to your phone (or another device) that makes it easier to hold your device and it can double as a stand. When you’re not using it, they can be pushed down and barely sticks out.

There was a sale, so I purchased a stand and a new PopSocket to use on my Kindle. It works very well and I love the design! (It is a reference to ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas).

There are a lot of accessories that you can get with them. I’ve previously bought a case that has the PopSocket built-in because the case that I originally had shed too much so the PopSocket wouldn’t stick.

My stand is so cute and it’s so nice to just pop my devices in.

Connecting with friends

It’s been a difficult couple of years, but I am very lucky to have close friends. None of my close friends are geographically close, so we rely on messaging each other, chatting over Discord, and playing games online.

Sometimes I get wrapped up in my own anxiety and get a bit distant, but my friends are always understanding and supportive. When we talk, it’s always great and I always feel so much happier afterward.

Because I’ve had my hearing loss for so long, I have learned to not speak too loudly. I am often very soft-spoken and am usually asked to speak louder. When I’m having a really good time, I completely forget to keep my volume levels in check, and that’s one way I know that I’m really relaxed and having a good time!
