I wish I had all the exciting stuff to share with you in this monthly wrap-up, but the truth of things is that I was just really busy with work. Don’t get me wrong, my work is cool and exciting, but it also takes up a lot of time and energy, so there’s just no reading or watching updates that are worth of sharing I feel like. Instead, I thought I’d give you the tiniest glimpse into my work life this time around? Hope that’s okay …
We had some super fun events for the new Shaun the Sheep movie – Farmageddon, where I got to meet one of the actual model makers of the Shaun the Sheep figures and then helped him teach little kids and blogger mums how to make their own clay Shauns and Lu-Las (his new alien friend). The kids really seemed to like the movie (what a relief!) and then there’s also a couple of awesome sci-fi references to discover for the adults.
Then there was this whole premiere marathon for a beautiful but sad German romance movie. I traveled from Berlin to Cologne to Munich and back in the span of only a few days, but I think it went fairly well too! The actual movie release is only this upcoming week, but since the film is based on a popular book series (the Danny trilogy by Jessica Koch) here’s to hoping that the bookish community will enjoy it.
So, I hope that gives you an idea of why I have been so consistently absent on the blog. This is, however, my last month at my current workplace and new adventures await after that. We will see what that will exactly look like, but I have a feeling there might be a little break in store for me. I adore all the support and encouragement from everyone around me though and am sure I will find something great soon! I am a workaholic after all …
THINGS I LIKED THIS MONTH
Someone who shares my ambitious mindset (to the absolute extreme) is Payton from Netflix’ new show The Politician. I didn’t expect to love that show at all, but it won me over so quickly. I have been told that it is very on brand for me to like it though, and I am not sure what that says about me exactly, but I am so looking forward to all the seasons of this, which I am sure it will get.
I am especially obsessed with the intro to the show. Can’t even remember the last time that happened, because themes have gotten so boring for a lot of shows these days.
I have also finally battled my inner die hard Charmed fan and started watching the first season of the reboot. I have some choice words to say about it, like they put 3 seasons of plot into 20 episodes alone and that was rushed and unnecessary. Also, they are trying to be so desperately current that I doubt this show will age well, but in the end it all lead to me really enjoying it regardless. I guess I am really too much into witchy content not to appreciate it. Mostly you can thank Rupert Evans and the fact that the show features a 28-year-old virgin like it’s no big deal for my change of heart.
TV SHOW/MOVIE RELATED
I hope you had a good September and are looking forward to October/Halloween! I have already sorted my costume and usually I am never that early with anything. If you want to chat about last month, just let me know!
