So … I didn’t read anything this month. Or wait! Let me rephrase that … I didn’t finish any book this past month, because I actually did read something but I didn’t enjoy it very much and now I am stuck again. Honestly, I don’t feel super happy about the amount of books I am behind on in my Goodreads challenge (currently 6), but I also don’t know when exactly I’d want to make time for reading. It’s a struggle, but maybe it will happen again.
In general, April just sort of flew by and I don’t know why exactly. There was one week I spent back home in Vienna but I was also glad to hear from some people at work that they had missed me while I was gone. Other than that, I can’t really think of a notable thing that happened (barring the return of Game of Thrones and the release of Endgame).
The one thing I did figure out though, was that I want to make reaction videos. I am sort of clear on the content I want to cover but currently trying to get all the technical stuff I need, because having a Microsoft operating system puts me at a bit of a disadvantage in terms of editing and the likes. So, if any of you have tips about software or a good cheap microphone and/or camera, hit me up! (Also taking emails on the matter, if you prefer that, under: firstname.lastname@example.org)
THINGS I LIKED THIS MONTH
I want to say Game of Thrones, but there’s going to be a full post on that matter once the season is over and we are all done with the song of Ice and Fire. I also have a lot of feels about the new Avengers movie, but will likely do a discussion post about it too. So, I’d rather talk about other things, such as the revival of VERONICA MARS!!!
I was shocked when I found out how many of you didn’t watch the show, because I was obsessed with it growing up. I loathed missing an episode, as there was no way to check them out elsewhere and I owned the entire DVD box set. Veronica was just such a role model for me and never ceased to be one, even when she made mistakes. I loved that we got a movie, even if it was mostly fan service, but I am even more pumped about it returning to TV. Please, for the love of all good television, do check out the origins of that show if you haven’t yet, because there is so much to unpack and I am sure the new stuff will be en par with the first two seasons rather than the third (it had flaws and I will admit to that).
Another thing I truly loved was the Netflix movie Someone Great! Aside from a fabulous cast, I liked how simple the story was. You don’t always need a gazillion things to happen for something to be … well, great. To me, it was both beautiful and sad, but also quiet and loud. It showed how people who have been with you for a while shape you and how parting isn’t easy but sometimes necessary and how you can love someone even if they don’t turn out to be the one. Not everything has to be ugly, even if it hurts. I hope I didn’t give anything away here, but this was not just a depressive movie, it was really fun and I can only wholeheartedly recommend it!
