July 2019 Wrap-Up

I am a tad bit late again with this wrap-up post, but rest assured this only ever happens when I desperately try to crank out a post before the end of the month and then it just won’t happen. The way this year has been going, I read comparatively a lot, but in the end the day has only so many hours and unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish the books on time for this post. Anyway, I did finish The Rook though and wrote a book-TV-comparison.

These posts are always a lot of fun and I think they attract readers too, because a lot of people are curious about the differences and such. I am not going to lie though, it’s also pretty hard to compare something, keeping it short and not spoiling everyone, especially since the most annoying things I didn’t like are often massive spoilers. If you haven’t checked out the post yet, feel free to click on the banner or the title of the book.

This hasn’t been a very blogging intensive month, because I have been super busy with work. There were a couple of 10+ hours at the office days and once I even worked on a weekend (for a movie premiere in places that weren’t Berlin, so it was exhausting but cool). My work contract was supposed to end come September, but now I extended it until the end of October and will be present for some more exciting projects (even though I honestly had to think about it for a long while). All of that, combined with a very steamy heat messed with my sleep rhythm and I was just happy to not do anything that required too many brain cells. I even started watching like 5 different shows that I still haven’t finished to this day … it wasn’t really an easy month sometimes. I just really can’t stand the heat.

On a whole different topic, I joined Bumble. For those of you have never heard of it, it’s basically a dating app HOWEVER it also has a bff function, where the app is supposed to help you find friends in the area. After living in Berlin for a year now, it still gets lonely sometimes and I am having a hard time making real connections outside of work, so, I thought why not give it a shot? At first, it all went really well. I got a lot of matches, but the conversations soon fizzled out, even with the people who were initially interested in meeting up. I don’t know if it’s just me or if anyone else on the app is having that problem, but it doesn’t seem very effective to me. We will see if anything happens on there …

THINGS I LIKED THIS MONTH

Aside from the Rook, which I talked about pretty much on a daily basis for a while the past month, I am currently obsessed with Davia and Dennis from Good Trouble. I know there’s a lot of great characters and representation on that show, also it’s just very entertaining, but those two really struck a chord with me. It’s probably all because I can relate to Davia’s weight struggle, even if she is a very body positive person, because that doesn’t mean all your doubts and unhealthy behaviors evaporate when certain people are around.

Unfortunately, I can just see Freeform messing with those two, which is why I dread the summer finale (not the season finale) next week. The last episode was just not ideal in terms of set up … and the promo for next week looks glum … people are crying … ANYWAY, until the bad stuff happens, I will just watch the video below on repeat.

  1. I’ve thought about using Bumble, but apps like that never really tend to amount to anything overwhelmingly substantial or positive for me, so I’ve kind of been hesitant. We’ll see!! Happy August πŸ™‚
