It’s been so long since I’ve posted a life update! I think it’s been about three weeks since my last Sunday post but I didn’t even realize it. The days are going by very fast because all my days are FILLED.
To be honest, I don’t know what exactly to update on but I shall just mention whatever I can think of.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
My classes started up again.
Yes, I’m still doing my internship. But college doesn’t revolve around us students with internships.
For the last semester, we have classes 3 days a week—Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Since I have internship Monday to Friday, I was (fortunately) given permission to skip classes for two days. Attendance on Saturdays is still required, though.
So from now on, I’m officially back on the six day week track.
Yesterday was my first day back in college and also for many of my friends. Most of us are doing internships so it was like a reunion after so long. It was so nice!
Everyone asked each other updates and caught up on lives. Since we’re a big group, we don’t text individually with everyone else. Most interactions and updates happen in groups so it was much needed.
We spent time like old times yesterday. My friend and I, who got into the same company, treated the rest of our friends in Taco Bell since we got our first stipend. And we played card games, which is a classic thing that we do.
So yeah, it was pretty fun.
I was off to a very good start at the beginning of this week. Especially since I got an audiobook subscription a while back.
But my reading just.. slowed down a lot. During the week I barely read. And Loveboat, Taipei which I was listening to as an audiobook was not very enjoyable. It put me off and I just stopped listening to it for a while.
In order to finish it, I picked it up as an ebook in the last few days and skimmed the rest of it. While the ending was good, I just did not have a good time reading it overall.
Other than that, I finished no other books. So yeah, I’m pretty sure I will be reducing my reading goal for the year.
Here’s the reading update on The Thing Around Your Neck:
TV Show & Movie update
I watched so many things recently!
I watching this Kdrama a couple weeks back. Binged it during the weekend, actually. It was actually really nice. I liked the complexity of the concept and it’s very different than the stories I’ve seen around the same concept.
Watched this Kdrama during the week a couple weeks back. It’s 20 episodes long and I was HOOKED the whole time. It’s a brilliant drama in the Dark Academia genre which talks about a ton of things. Complex characters, complex relationships and a very interesting story.
Watched this on Netflix last weekend. I’ve been a real fan of Taylor Swift only in the last year or so, when she started speaking out on things and became more than a regular singer. This movie brought many things from her life to light. It was nice to watch and learn more about her as a person.
P.S. I Still Love You
This sequel to To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was nice but… I didn’t like it all that much. It wasn’t special. There were a ton of cool plotlines from the book that were scrapped. In fact, almost everything other than the love triangle was scrapped. It made the movie seem to have less substance.
I’m excited to watch the third movie, though. It’s less about new romances and more about life and choices. It should be quite nice.
I watched this series throughout the past week. It’s actually quite small, with only 10 half-hour episodes.
But it packed SO MUCH in those 5 hours. The show is too good, and I have no idea why Netflix cancelled it WITHIN A MONTH of releasing it. That’s such a disappointment.
It’s honestly one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.
I’ve been having small but really good conversations with people recently. Just talking about things and finding out various perspectives. It’s always interesting to see how different people view the same thing.
And I really like conversations where we talk about something in depth, ask each other questions on things and explain perspectives. It helps me understand other people better. I also sometimes learn new things.
So yeah. That’s been the random highlight of last week.
That’s about all I have to say. There have been a ton of small things happening but not interesting enough to share lol.
How was your week? What did you read or watch?
