Weeks and weeks go by, and I’m unable to regularly write Commercial Break posts. It’s like almost impossible for me, despite the fact that I do have things to share each week. And yet, every time I sit behind a desk and try to summarize my weeks, I draw a blank – either my life is a complete dull-fest, or I’m actually imagining all the stuff that’s going on in my life once I try to write it down. I’m thinking it could be my wild imagination.
Things are pretty much the same old same old. I have kept myself busy with work, reading and trying to catch up with shows, and failing miserably with the latter. Part of me is looking forward for Summer because I’m hoping to break my habits a little, but considering my vacation isn’t until at the end of August, I’m prepared for a very dull Summer.
Who knows though, maybe I’ll be able to travel a little, and most importantly, go swimming! I haven’t swam in a lake or the sea in such a long time, it feels like forever! I miss swimming, I’m good at it, and I even miss the salty water that hangs on your skin for what feels like days. Oh well, now I’m excited for this Summer.
I still have Bucky feels sometimes. I’d be walking, or working, and suddenly I’m thinking about how Bucky is doing. What will happen to him? When will he be free to be himself? Will he be able to eat plums, and will he finally be friends with Sam? I can’t believe how good Civil War was.. and I hope the next movies in the franchise are able to live up to it. Though I doubt it, unless Bucky is in every single one of those movies!
This month I’ve seen few other movies as well. I watched Neighbors 2, which I loved, and High-Rise, which confused me a lot. Since I’m behind with most of their reviews, and the ones from last month as well, I don’t think I’ll be watching any new ones. Plus, I’m very behind with my TV shows, and that includes Game of Thrones AND Outlander.
As I already mentioned, I haven’t had the time to watch Game of Thrones yet. But have no fear, Tumblr has provided me with enough information about it, to be aware of pretty much everything important that has happened. But so far, nothing hasn’t really captured my attention enough to steal me away from my reading.
The same kind of goes for Outlander as well, though part of my hesitation is due to the fact that the second season may or may not crush me. I’ve heard some things about the second book, which I want to read before watching the show (I think), and I’m afraid to watch season 2 because of the tears and feelings. At the same time, I don’t want to be spoiled when the time comes, so I’m either going to speed read the second book OR watch the second season instead.
Now, though I usually do some sort of a TV-series introduction post about the upcoming Summer shows, I’m completely unaware what is happening on TV at the moment. I might still investigate if I have the time, but I’m starting to think I’m … not a TV addict anymore!
BOOKS & MUSIC
Since I had such a great reading month in April, I decided to tackle my TBR and pick up a book that has been in there for more than three years – 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. The book is massive, the paperback edition I have weighs about 0,6kg and the biggest task is not to read it, it is the holding of the book, that makes the task difficult. I’m more than half way through though, so I’ll definitely finish it by this month. Which is when I’ll most likely pick up the Percy Jackson series because there’s a new book out, and I’m curious, and I want to be included.
Being from Europe, every May we have this massive international song contest called Eurovision. Most of you probably knew about it, and this year, everybody else must have heard about it as well because it has gone beyond global. Before, only Australia was watching (now competing as well), but this year China and USA jumped on the Eurovision train as well. Justin Timberlake even offered to perform, which he did and he was alright. So for those who watched, and for those who have no idea what it is about, here are a few of my favorite songs from this years competition.
