A few things happened last week that really knocked me on my ass. My workload has since tripled since my boss has been on vacation so I’ve been really busy and stressed over some work-related things and then as I was getting ready for work on Tuesday, my brother called me to tell me that one of our close friends died and it was sudden, unexpected and I’ve been thrown for a loop. So I’ve been dealing with that and trying to be there for my friends and it’s just been a hard week all around. I did manage to lose myself in books so I’m happy about that.
Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter. She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever. When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?
In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I've Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.
It’s been an odd week. After the news that my friend David had passed on, I’ve been in a funky mood. I don’t want to go out, I don’t want to be around people but I did want to read. So I did. I was supposed to start A Duke by Default by Alyssa Cole and while I still have plans to read it, I started my buddy review book To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and I just kept right on reading the books. I finished To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before yesterday and immediately jumped into this one. So far, I’m really enjoying it and I’m really loving Peter Kavinsky. Gah, what an adorable book boyfriend. I love him.

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.
What Movies I Watched
The Avengers: Infinity War (2018) | 4.5 out of 5
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) | 3.75 out of 5
There you have it, a look back at my month of May. How was your month in books, tv shows and movies? Read or see anything good? Share with me!
This post is coming all hella late but it couldn’t be helped. I was lazy. Haha. Better late than never, right?
What I Did
February was for basketball.
Meghan’s team went to Conference finals and lost to Westmont. =( Brenna and Ken’s team went to the second round of Playoffs before they were ousted. =( Still, both teams had great seasons and we still got next year so I’ve got my fingers crossed that they’ll come back and do great things next season. We also got to catch one of my cousin’s daughter’s games in Santa Monica and that was fun.
We celebrated Delene, Jarred and my brother Mel’s birthday near the end of the month. I also got to spend some time with my bestie, Therese and that’s always a good time. February was not too shabby on the activities front.
