outside the blogosphere

Another quiet, good week. It was my last week of freedom (fall semester starts tomorrow), so I spent as much of it as possible cleaning house and relaxing. And, as you can see, going ham with the pre-approvals on NetGalley & Edelweiss (whoops!).
We’re going to see the Game Grumps comedy tour this week and I can’t wait! I’ve taken the day off work so my spouse and I can enjoy a nice day of exploring before the show starts, and we got VIP tickets so we can attend the Q&A session with Arin and Dan beforehand. I’ve been following GG for about a decade, so meeting them is going to be a pretty big bucket list item for me! ♥
(I might have been meandering around the house all week randomly bursting into, “Hey, I’m Grump! I’m Not-So-Grump! Aaaand weeee’re the Game Grumps!”)

reading this weekend…

I still haven’t worked up the courage to start Darkdawn yet, because I’m scared of how much it’s going to hurt me. 😂 These are the things I’m hoping to finish tonight:
📚 The Work of Art (how have I not finished this yet?!)
📚 You May Now Kiss the Bride (I fell a little behind on my buddy read with Bex!)
📚 Made for You (I’m flying through this today)
📚 Bloom

what I watched

🎥 Nothing this week, but I did go to a neighboring region’s library yesterday and pick up 9 movies to work through over the next couple of weeks!

  • For anyone curious, I checked out Gifted (2017), Slender Man (2018), 47 Meters Down (2017), Murder on the Orient Express (2017), Lizzie (2018), My Cousin Rachel (2017), and I also grabbed a few things to rewatch: Children of the Corn (1984), Sharknado (2013), and The Visit (2015).

what I listened to

* these are my favorite songs of the week!

🎵 Lacuna Coil — ‘Losing My Religion’ cover (Yep, same as last week.)

what I played

🎮 Nothing! I’m as shocked and disappointed as you all are.

    Good luck on your fall semester! My classes start next week on the 27th, so I feel ya on the enjoying the last bit of freedom and attempting to do some last minute cleaning (tho my classes start next week, I move in on Wednesday, and I just started packing today, eek 😬).
