All the TV shows I plan on watching instead of writing my essays :)

Hey and howdy, happy Monday.

Today I have the house to myself. After a tiring weekend of packing my bags to leave uni, saying goodbye to my housemates who are ditching me for study abroad in America next semester (😭 ) and then actually leaving uni, I’m ready for a rest.

Sure I’ve had the weekend but there’s no such thing as resting when there’s my 10 and 7 year old brother and sister running around the place. How they have so much energy I’ll never know.

They’re off at school though and my dads at work which means I’m spending the day on the couch and getting started on my Christmas break Watch-List. Sure I’ve got two essays and a piece of 2500 word creative writing to crack on with because the semester isn’t technically over yet, but I’m just gonna ignore that for now.

Since I’m procrastinating today anyways, I figured I’d share with you the shows I plan on watching over the next three weeks.


Only Murders in the Building

Was my initial interest in this show all because of Selena Gomez? Yes. No shame. I’ve been obsessed with her since the Wizards of Waverly Place and Princess Protection Programme days.

I’ve actually watched the first episode of this but got too busy to continue. I was really intrigued by what I watched though and am excited to continue on.

🎞Everything I’ve Been Watching Recently … #4🎞

Hi. I’m bored.

I’m currently suffering through health and safety training videos for work and they’re the most mind numbing things in the world. The essence of it is “have some goddamn common sense”.

To keep me from falling asleep at my desk, I figured I’d talk about some shows and movies (mostly movies) I’ve been watching recently. I’ve never watched so many movies in such a short space of time before so let’s just jump in.


Loki

Gonna be honest with you, out of the three Marvel series I’ve watched, I think I understood the actual plot of this the least. Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed it, just don’t ask me to explain the ending.

Mobius is now one of my faves and I loved seeing Loki again. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Loki + Sylvie relationship, they’re literally just the alternate universe version of each other and it weirds me out but I digress. I am excited for Season 2, whenever that may be, and although I know it’s not going to happen, I wouldn’t mind seeing Loki rock up in the Doctor Strange movie.

🎞Everything I’ve Been Watching Recently … #3🎞

Hello and howdy 😊🤠

I have some time to kill. I’m going to the fair tonight with some friends and I am so hyped for it, especially since it was cancelled last year. The only problem is that I’m not meeting my friends till 11pm.

Obviously you don’t get the full fair experience unless it’s dark and also, I couldn’t think of anything worse then being stuck in a metal contraption in the middle of the day in 37*C weather. That sounds like actual torture. So we’re going in the middle of the night.

Since I have a fair few hours to go, I figured I’d take this time to talk about some of the stuff I’ve been watching recently.


Unpregnant

This movie has the potential of becoming one of my favourites. I foresee myself re-watching this a lot in the future! Unpregnant is a book to movie adaptation for the book of the same name. I haven’t read the book, and don’t me but I don’t plan too. I got enough enjoyment from watching the film.

It was simultaneously really funny and entertaining while also touching on important matter in regards to abortion and bodily autonomy.

🎞Everything I’ve Been Watching Recently … #2🎞

Hi, and howdy!

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written a blog post. It hasn’t. It’s been like a week, maybe two at the most, I’m just being dramatic.

Right now I’m in the home stretch of school. I’ve got two weeks left and hopefully that’s me done (although realistically I’m probably going to have to do at least one resit the week after but it’s fine). I had a bit of an anxious/depressive episode end of last term and start of this term so the fact that I’m actually feeling motivated to do my school work and study again is a welcome sensation.

Because of this though, it means I haven’t had time to post, and probably won’t for another couple of weeks but I thought I’d wrap up everything I watched while I was basically procrastinating my life, so that when I’m free from the shackles of school I can get started on my “to-be-watched” list!

🎞Everything I’ve Been Watching Recently … #1🎞

Hi and howdy!

I have no life. Partly because there’s still a pandemic going on, partly because I’m a socially anxious introvert. Because of these two things I read a lot and I also watch a lot of TV shows and movies … or at least I try to. It usually takes me a while to finish things but I’ve done quite well recently of finishing what I’ve started and I’m here to talk about those shows/movies today :))


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Season 3

There’s every possibility that I never actually finished Season 2 but that didn’t stop me from watching the third part of this series. I just made sure to watch a couple of recap videos beforehand and I was good to go.

I really liked this third season and demolished it in two days, it was probably my favourite of the entire series. I liked Sabrina juggling being a teenager, a witch and then trying to become the freaking queen of Hell ontop of all that. Prudence was a badass, Ambrose was the only one with a brain cell, the whole thing with the Pagans was pretty cool.

After all of this I thought season 4 was going to be amazing. It was not …

I binged season 2 in 1 day so … Umbrella Academy Book Tag

Hello and howdy!

I’m trying to keep myself awake. I’m doing a 10pm till 2am shift tonight which is great. Yay for employment. However it’s 6pm and I’m ready for a nap. Not good.

So instead of downing a Monster like I want to, I’m keeping myself busy and I’m doing a tag, more specifically The Umbrella Academy Tag.

I wasn’t tagged for this but I’ve been wanting to do this one for a while and I binge watched the entirety of Season 2 when it came out the other week so I thought it was the perfect time to do so.black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12

Hello: Name the best first book in a series.

hi, bye

I’ve racked my brain for an answer to this since I first saw the questions and I’ve got two answers however one may be cheating so it’s fine.

My “might be cheating” answer is Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare. While I obviously haven’t read the next two books in this trilogy I do thing CoG is the best first book in the entire Shadowhunter Chronicle series.

And my other answer is Percy Jackson & the Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan which is such a feel good book. I love the entire series but this one has a special place in my heart. Continue reading “I binged season 2 in 1 day so … Umbrella Academy Book Tag”

The Stay Home Book Tag

And once again my procrastination has come back to haunt me 😂 It’s nearly midnight and I still haven’t done my homework or written today’s post.

Could I do these things tomorrow morning? Yes, but I like sleep and I know that no matter how hard I try I’m not going to wake up early and be productive so here I am.

Today I’m going to be doing the Stay Home Book Tag which was originally created by Princess of Paperback. I’ve seen this tag all over recently and I am still stuck at home thanks to Spanish lockdown so that’s what I’m going to be doing today.

Laying In Bed: A book you read in one day.

sleepy

The most recent book I read in one day was The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith not because I liked it but because I had to write a report on it and I left it till the last minute so I knocked it out and got it out of the way with in one day.

Another book I did like and read in one day was The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman. Technically I read the first chapter the night before but that was just testing the waters before falling asleep so it counts. Continue reading “The Stay Home Book Tag”

What I’ve Been Watching …#2

bg5

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

I made an Oreo brownie earlier today, I’ve just had some and I’m 96% sure I’m about to slip into a chocolate induced nap so I’m going to try and speed through this as quick as.

Today I’m going to be talking about the movies and tv shows I’ve been watching recently, and by recently I mean since Spanish lockdown went into effect.

My dad actually got us Netflix about a week into lockdown and let’s just say it’s thanks to Netflix that we haven’t had any giant family fights.

Movies

Five Feet Apart (2019)- I read this book first and I cried. And then I watched the movie. And I cried. This was a case of me enjoying the movie as much as I liked the book.

D.E.B.S (2004)- WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME THIS EXISTED!! Ok so this is a movie all about a spy and a criminal falling in love except THEY’RE BOTH GIRLS AND IT’S HILARIOUS AND I LOVE IT! It reminds me of Charlies Angels but a lesbian romantic comedy.

Things I’m enjoying about lockdown // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hello and happy Tuesday 🙂

I’m going to be real with you, I barely know what day it is anymore. Time is becoming meaningless and I barely know what’s going on anymore.

I live in Spain and over here we’ve been on lockdown since I think around the middle of March and it was meant to last two weeks, fast forward to now and the lockdown has been extended until the 26th of April.😂

I feel like I’m handling it well. I’m keeping myself entertained, my anxiety has miraculously been kept at bay and there haven’t been many arguments. My years of living an introverted life are coming in handy.

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is continuing to look on the bright side and talk about what we’re enjoying about lockdown.

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm

Unlimited Reading Time

original

I was expecting to barely read anything in March because I should have been drowning in exams and anxiety. Instead I read 9 books because exams got cancelled and I became incredibly motivated to read everything and anything. Continue reading “Things I’m enjoying about lockdown // Top 5 Tuesday”

12 Days of Christmas // Book Tag

IHi, hey, hello and Merry Christmas!!!

I am oftumblr_pjh8llKjhV1uutnkko1_500ficially done with exams for this term, I’m just waiting on my final grades which come tomorrow which means I am now in full Christmas mode.

My mum made the foolish decision to keep the boxes of chocolates, reserved solely for Christmas, in my room and forgive me mother for I have sinned but I’ve been dipping into them … and hiding the evidence in my school bag.

Christmas needs to hurry up and arrive before I steal anymore and there’s none left come Christmas eve when we’re finally aloud to eat them. If she finds out I don’t think I’ll survive through to the new year.

Anyways I’m doing the 12 days of Christmas book tag even though, yes, there is now only one week left to go. Maybe I should ask for the gift of time management for Christmas.

❄On the first day of Christmas, my true love game to me: a partridge in a pear tree❄

The Partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favourite stand alone?

17235448

I don’t know if this is necessarily my favourite stand alone but its the first stand alone I had ever really read and it’s one of the books that helped convince me I could and would like things outside just popular urban fantasy and for that it holds a special place in my heart.
