I feel like these weekly wrap ups are getting kind of ridiculous lately. I haven’t been reading anything. But then again, I want to keep you all updated! I may not be reading, but I’ve been doing plenty of other things. I really want to apologize for the lack of reading, as this is a book blog. I’m really trying to read more! I just… can’t seem to do it. My sincerest apologies.
So, in conclusion, I didn’t read anything. Sorry!
I’ve been on a long break with this series. I watched season 1, 2 and half of season 3 quite a while ago. Drama shows are often so intense that I feel the need to take a break. But I’ve always loved this show. This week, I have watched the rest of season 3, and I’m now on to season 4. I’m catching up! I love Kerry Washington. Not only is she an amazing actress, she’s also incredibly beautiful. Seriously. And I want each of her outfits, even though I probably won’t look even half as good in them.
Same story here! As this is such a dramatic show (in the best way possible), I had to take a little break from it. BUT I’M BACK, and I’m catching up. Currently, I’m watching season 4. I think I marathoned (how do I even write that?) season 3 and most of season 4. I’m such a big fan of Harvey (on the right here). First of all, he’s handsome. LOOK AT HIM. And in a suit. There is nothing better than a good-looking man wearing a suit.
I’ve made a new section! I already had what I read, what I watched, so why not what I listened to? If this is a section that is of zero interest to you, let me know. I’d love feedback on how to better my wrap ups.
In the past few weeks, I have discovered the joy of podcasts. I listened to one in August, but then kind of forgot about it? Lately, I’ve been having some time on the train, while I’m walking or at home. I haven’t felt like reading, but did want to listen to someone talk, if that makes sense. So I did some “research” into podcasts. Here are some I’m currently loving:
The Jess Lively Show // Jess always has really interesting guests on her show. They then talk about that person’s specialty, and so on. I’ve gotten so much great advice from her podcast! Definitely worth checking out.
Happier with Gretchen Rubin // Now, I haven’t read any of her books, although I really want to pick up The Happiness Project soon. But I listened to a few episodes already, and I love them (even though they aren’t very long). She has some great tips I want to try and implement into my life.
Dear Hank and John // This is the podcast I started listening to in August already. I love this one. Is there anything better than Hank and John Green answering people’s questions? I don’t think so. Besides, I’d take a look at anything that Hank Green creates.
Call Your Girlfriend // When I saw the title of this podcast, I was unsure. But it’s actually about two best friends, who have a long-distance-best-friendship (yes, I made that up). They’ve brought up some really interesting points and opinions in the several episodes I’ve listened to and I’d definitely recommend giving it a try.
- So part one of “in real life” is a recurring one: I’ve been working on my thesis proposal. The deadline is getting so close, and I’m honestly scared. I really can’t fail this.
- I feel like this was a week of errands, going to the bank, picking up my fixed watch, etc. So yeah, apparently, I had an uneventful week!
- Lastly, on Friday evening some of my extended family visited. I got to be sous-chef, as one of them is an amazing cook. I helped her prepare the food (and then eat it of course). I always love evenings like this, because I love to cook.
- Belgium won against Italy in the friendly match on Friday as well! 3-1! So boo to all of those who’ve been saying that Belgium can only win against small/not-so-great teams.
Of course, I can’t forget about the horrible events of Friday either. When we heard the news of Paris, we were shocked. After all, it’s so close by. Some of my friends are actually in Paris studying right now, but thankfully they are all okay. I don’t have words for this tragedy. I don’t think Europe has been this shocked and devastated in a long time. To all of the people in Paris, I hold you in my heart.
