Just when I thought I was out of the hole, I get dragged back into the dark pit of fangirling. In other words, while trying to get everything ready before the deadlines dropped, the girls on Twitter kindly shoved Chris Evans into my face. Not that I mind, it’s just… it’s distracting, that’s what it is. Painfully and annoyingly distracting, just like that image abo…
…where was I? Oh right, Chris Evan is distracting but I already knew that. I just had managed to keep my focus on other things, because fangirling is hard work and I don’t have enough time. You all know how out of hand it got in January with Sam. Oh Sam, how I miss him! I will try to catch up with him again soon. I just need to get my shit together, and stop binging on Netflix!
Last week I worked a lot, then had to make two deadlines. One I’ll mention soon, the other was translating two episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm. It’s just a quick additional work (yeah, as if I’m not working enough), and I will try to do it again. It is fun, a bit frustrating at times but still a great challenge. Plus, it allows me to use my native language more, which I need to do, because I’m rubbish in written Estonian.
Went out on Friday as well, dancing. It was fun, stayed up really late and messed up my sleeping schedule again. Probably won’t get it back soon either because I have three late shifts this week. Anyway, I’m going to binge on my obsessions this week (Sam and Chris), get some reading done (Little Fires Everywhere) and not stress about the stressful things.
Across the Universe Podcast, as you might have noticed, is on a little timeout. We will be back soon, I promise, but meanwhile, go listen to my very first podcast episode with Sofia and Nik. It’s about Marvel, so fitting to go along with this new Chris Evans obsession of mine.
I mentioned before that I had two deadlines, well the second was watching all four Indiana Jones movies for The LAMBcast recording. Yes, I’m participating again, but no worries, I wasn’t very talkative this time. It’s hard to talk among huge fans of the franchise, and even though I do like some Indiana Jones, it’s still not my favourite thing in the world (don’t hate me). But yeah, the next episode for that will be up soon.
No surprise here, but I saw all four Indiana Jones movies last week. First one was good, second one was not as good, third one is my favourite and the fourth is horrible. In between the third and the fourth I rewatched Captain America: The First Avenger. Man, I love that movie. Not as much as The Winter Soldier (which I will watch this week), but that first chase scene as Cap – yummy. Since I’ll be seeing Infinity War on the 25th, I don’t think I will be able to rewatch all the movies. But… I could try? No. I’ll just rewatch all Cap’s movies and maybe the first Avengers movie.
BUT I also saw A Quiet Place on Friday and it was great! Already started with my review, and it’s unfinished version is already way too long. I have many thoughts, and while I do think it’s not perfect, it’s still very good! The review will be up either Wednesday or Saturday, depends how quick I’ll manage to edit it.
This weekend I might see Blockers as well. Heard good things and I’m always up for a good comedy, even though it’s the genre I’m most critical about. There is also something about John Cena that I actually enjoy. He has always surprised me so I’m excited to see what he can do with a bigger, more prominent role.
Can’t believe this but I actually didn’t watch TV shows last week. I’m also a little behind with The Good Fight and The Good Doctor. Plus, I haven’t really been watching UnReal either. Though with the last one, binge watching feels more suitable anyway.
But, there is this new show coming with Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer called Killing Eve and it looks strange yet thrilling. It has a female driven plot with assassins – I’m in. Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint.
Honestly, I have been so shit with reading this year that it’s actually stressing me out. There are about three books I have started, but none of them have kept me interested enough to finish them. It’s not that I keep picking up bad books, it’s just that I keep getting distracted by TV shows and Chris Evans or Sam Rockwell or who ever digs a hole for me. I will finish Little Fires Everywhere this week though! Mark my words!
Yes, I’m very late to the Shawn Mendes train but I’m always behind with things. In Your Blood is one of his newest song, and I love it! I had it on repeat for an entire week and this week won’t be an exception. Also, Shawn was on Hot Ones few weeks ago and it’s pure gold!
