The second of 2022 was pretty quiet on my end. I worked every day but even work was quiet. This is usually our slow quarter at work so I expected to be slow but I’m low-key bored, not that I’m going to complain because I know that this period isn’t going to last long. Before I know what’s what, the jobs will be pouring in and I’ll be in hell again so I’m going to enjoy this peace and quiet for however long it lasts.
This week was also the week that our water heater went out. We were without water for two whole days because not only did the water heater go down but we had some serious irrigation issues in our front yard and back yard that caused some slight flooding so we had to get all of that fixed. The water heater was replaced, so I was able to take an actual shower which made me happy. We’re in the process of getting the irrigation issues dealt with so that should be over soon and all will be well again. Fingers crossed.
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did in the last two weeks since I missed last week’s post…
What I Read
Human Acts by Han Kang | 4 out of 5
Save Me by BTS, Lico | 4.5 out of 5
Bombshell (Hell’s Belles #1) by Sarah MacLean | 4 out of 5
Getting Played (Getting Some #1) by Emma Chase | 2.5 out of 5
My reading has definitely picked up this week but I don’t want to jinx it so I’m just going to be happy that I’m reading again and hope that it continues. I started the year with a buddy read and some book club reads. I’ve already started my fourth read of the year but it’s slow going because I started and almost finished an entire drama in two days. I don’t regret it though because the drama was good.
My favorite read of the week goes to the webtoon, Save Me. The story was fun and though the ending felt a bit rushed, I still rather enjoyed the story as a whole. It was fun to see Jin trying to save all of the boys, getting it wrong and then trying again. If, at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again. It was great. My least favorite read of the week goes to Getting Played (Getting Some #1) by Emma Chase. This is a re-read for me and I don’t remember the dialogue being so cheesy and the characters being so corny.
What I Watched
School 2021 | 3.5 out of 5
Encanto | 4.5 out of 5
Dear My Friends | 4 out of 5
I spent my long weekend watching Dear My Friends on Netflix. I wasn’t expecting this drama to be as emotionally charged as it was and I’m super glad that I gave it a go. I can see me and my bestie, Therese acting up like these old ladies and calling Brenna to come and save us from our shenanigans. I can’t wait, haha.
I really love me some Choi Wung and every single time that V’s voice comes on, singing Christmas Tree, my heart breaks and soars because I love hearing V sing.
I’m not sure if my boredom is due to the actual storyline or if it’s because I’m not in the mood for it right now but either way, I’m dropping it. I’m not sure if I’m dropping it for good, or if I’m dropping it for now. I guess we’ll find out.
Demon Slayer with Therese every Sunday and this week’s episode was too good.
Seeing Nezuko finally get the chance to feel everything that she’s been suppressing ever since she turned into a demon was more emotional than I was expecting. So far, this season is my favorite season and I’m super obsessed. I’m collecting the print manga’s so that I can read everything ahead of the episodes released each week. I’m also watching everything that I can find on YouTube as well. Needless to say, this anime is good as shit.
