Another Sunday, another weekly wrap up!
Okay everyone, this week has been a giant disappointment in the reading department. I haven’t read anything all week… I KNOW. Not a single page. Partly because I’ve been busy with school and writing blog posts, but partly because I’m in a slump.
I can’t make myself read anymore. My attention wavers immediately… It’s so sad, because I’ve been on my book buying/requesting ban so I could finish more books already on my shelf AND finally catch up with Netgalley. And now I’m totally ruining it by not reading at all. I feel so bad about it. But I also know that if I force myself to read, I won’t enjoy the book at all -no matter how good it actually may be.
So do any of you have any tips for getting out of a slump? I usually re-read some of my favorite books, but in this instance I feel bad because my whole point was to read books I haven’t read yet!
First of all, I have been watching so many “react videos” of the Fine Brothers Entertainment YouTube channel. I’ve been laughing so hard at a lot of these guys! My favorites are the “teens react…” and “YouTubers react…”. I have no idea why, but they appeal to me the most.
I don’t know whether I mentioned it, but we had a 6-month free trial of Netflix for the past 6 months. And it was glorious. Now however, the free trial is over and we still have to get to adding our credit card information. So I haven’t been binge-watching anything because I can’t anymore! It’s terrible. PLEASE COME BACK. So most of what I’ve been doing has been keeping up with current shows like Quantico, Criminal Minds, The Flash, Blindspot and Scorpion. I still have to watch this week’s episode of HTGAWM! I’m always a day or 2-3 behind on that one, but once I watch it I’m obsessed again. It’s just a crazy show. And I’ve been losing some of my love for Scream Queens. Don’t get me wrong, I still like it… But it has sort of stayed on the same level, while I’ve been waiting for it to get more epic, if that makes sense?
I wanted to make this list complete, even though I didn’t know whether I should add this show. Why, you ask? Well, it’s a Belgian -or more accurately, a Flemish- show. So unless you are Belgian, Dutch or know Dutch, you won’t be able to watch it… But I’ve been loving it for the past week so I still wanted to talk about it! The show I’m talking about is called Spitsbroers. Which means striker-brothers! Striker as in the football/soccer term. It’s such a great show, I absolutely love it. Here are some pictures of the show!
So, what’s been going on in my life?
First of all, I’ve been doing the 30 Days of Yoga challenge with Inge @ Bookshelf Reflections, and I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved! On my own, I always end up quitting. But now we’ve actually reached day 10 together. Plus, it’s so much fun to have a buddy to work-out with!
I’ve been working hard for university this week. I’m trying to keep up with all my classes, and I’m keeping up with the summary-making already. And the pressure for my thesis is raising. I have an important decision to make about it in the coming week, and I’m terrified I won’t do it well. So I hope it all turns out okay!
