Monthly Recap: May 2018

Posted June 5, 2018 by Rowena in Family, Features | 3 Comments

Can you believe that I didn’t post one post in the entire month of May? I kept meaning to but work kept me busy from the time I got to the office to the time that I left for the day and I spent the rest of the day, relaxing from my taxing workload. I didn’t have the energy to keep up with this blog and that made me sad so I’m going to try harder this month. Wish me luck. 🙂

What I Did

For the most part, my month was taken up by work. I did take a week off to travel to Colorado for my nephew Kaleo’s high school graduation. That trip was a much-needed break from work and I ate up my time away from the office.

These are the four songs that got the most play time in the entire month of May. I love each of these songs and can’t get enough of all of them. So good!

What I Watched on TV

I haven’t been reading a lot because I haven’t been in the mood to read so I’ve been binge-watching the heck out of all of the shows above. Lots and lots of great tv show watching though. Of all the shows that I’m watching, my favorites are The Resident, For the People and Splitting Up Together.

The Avengers: Infinity War (2018) | 4.5 out of 5
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) | 3.75 out of 5

  1. I do love a good old binge watch and I do find that sometimes when you’ve been busy with work you do just want to sit on down and chill in front of the TV. I’ve had that some the past few weeks, I watched a bit of The 100 and binge watched the second season of 13 Reasons Why because I can. I just want to lose myself and reading words can be hard sometimes.

      Yeah, that’s how it’s been for me too. I just don’t have the energy to read words. I’m blaming my work load on that. How are you enjoying the second season of 13 Reasons Why? I only watched part of one episode and then I stopped. No real reason why though.
