ReWind: Summer in Ireland

hello

Hey, I’M BACK !!

Looking back, Summer 13′ was quite the experience for me, I made some great friends and worked about 550 hours in 3 months. Work and trying to explore Ireland, or at least get out from the hotel I worked in, took most of my time and therefore my blog was sadly a bit stranded. I didn’t plan it but I guess life does get in your way and I can’t promise this #temporary death will never happen again, I’ll just say that I’m now back in my element and hopefully you missed me enough to return to this blog.

So before I dig back into the movie world, I wanted to share my Ireland experience for those who might be interested.. and to be honest, I need to get my writing groove back and it seemed like the right topic to get those fingers typing.

ReWind: June

june2

There isn’t much need for a rewind post for June but hey, at least I’m writing and letting you know I’m still among the living. Plus, this marks a year since I started this feature and it would be a shame to skip this. Anyway, working takes up the majority of my time and the rest is pretty much getting out of my working environment to some civilization. Today’s the big day though, I’ll finally get to go the cinema but since I wasn’t really part of the what-movie-should-we-see decision making, I’m going to see Despicable Me 2. Now, this wouldn’t be my first choice but at this point, I don’t care. Besides, I’m sure it’ll be a good craic (well look at me, using Irish and everything).

ReWind: May

maySo I’m a little behind with this post but I’ve been experiencing a thing called nine-to-seven job which isn’t really supportive towards my creative outlet. But that’s not going to stop me from looking back at May and planning ahead for June, even though it requires some math with the numbers. That reminds me, I’m just gonna warn you not to look forward for any systematic post schedule, I’m mixing things up a bit, mostly because I have to, and keeping it fresh for the summer. Also, I’m really trying to watch movies but ten days into June, and so far, have watched exactly no movies – fingers crossed this dry spell will wear off soon.

ReWind: April

April

I would be ignoring the obvious if I wouldn’t mention the fact that April was not a good month. In general, everything just seemed so blah and when I decided to have The Good Wife marathon from season 1 to season 4, I just completely shut off everything else. Now, hopefully I will get back my groove and since I’m definitely going to go cinema-crazy this month (Star Trek, The Place Beyond the Pines, Iron Man 3), the possibility of motivation hitting me in the face this month is very likely.

ReWind: March

MarchIronically, the end of March pretty much looks like the end of February – snow and ice are still covering the ground, Winter truly came and now it will never leave. But for a movie blogger, staying inside is pretty much a part time job anyways, so the outside really doesn’t matter at all. And the thing that matters the most at the moment is to bring you last month’s stats and other facts.

Numbers: 171,000+ all time views, 6,840 views, 221 average per day,  24 posts

New Records: –

Movies I saw: Animal Kingdom, Skyfall, The Makeover, Jack Reacher, Identity Thief, Burn After Reading, Fight Club (re-watched), Oz the Great and Powerful, Upside Down, The Impossible, Unbreakable (re-watched), Being John Malkovich, Psycho, Spring Breakers, Trainspotting (re-watched), Mystic River (re-watched) – total: 12+4rw.
