Monthly Wrap Up

March 2021 Wrap Up

Is March really over already? This month flew by, and unfortunately, I didn’t get to nearly all the things I wanted to. It was a slow month for reading and writing, with very little progress made on my novel or my TBR. That being said, I did manage to figure out a part of the final arc of my story that has been slowing me down for quiet some time (possibly close to three or four months). I still think I’m on track to finish it by late May, and that’s terribly exciting.

There was a lot less novellas, graphic novels, and short stories for me to pick up this month, and considering I am a maniac and decided to start A Promised Land while already a third of the way into Persephone Station, I am not surprised. One book is pretty massive, the other is sizable as well. Hopefully I can make up for it in April, when I get a pile of books for my birthday.

I also applied for a new job! It’s at my local indie book store and I’m got my fingers crossed that I’ll hear back from them in the near future! I’ve wanted to work there for a long time, but was always convinced they’d never hire me. No, I have no reason for that logic, but it is what it is. I’ve been in the food service industry for over a decade now, and my wrists and hands cannot handle this level of strain. So onto a new job it is. Well… hopefully.

Last but not least in exciting news- got my first Covid vaccine! I’ll go back in three weeks for round two, but so far, so good. The injection sight isn’t even sore, plus I got to show off my impressive biceps! I’ve been weight training, so it was fun rolling back my sleeves and showing off the muscle, even if the doctor didn’t notice or care, lol.

What I Watched…

A short film shot by Alice Guy Blache, who you can read more about here. This is the first film directed by a women, and don’t worry, no infants were harmed in the making of this movie.
Travis Barker, the drummer from Blink 182, is busy making amazing music with a plethora of different artists, and this song is SO GOOD. If those drums don’t get you hyped you might not have a pulse.
Will the Hamilton hype ever truly die? Should it? The answer is no, because Hamilton was sheer perfection.
Speaking of sheer perfection- Idris Elba and Margot Robbie in a movie together? Give. Me. That.
Dianxi Xiaoge is one of my favorite YouTube personalities, she makes a multitude of dishes in a traditional Chinese style, while showing of the beauty of the Yunnan region of China where she lives. Every episode tends to have English subtitles, and you can’t help but love her enormous dog, Dwang.

OK, there it is lovelies! How did your March go? Were you able to get to everything you wanted to, or were you like me, and found yourself lagging behind in terms of motivation and momentum? Sound off in the comments and we can lament or celebrate as necessary.

See you next month!

  1. A very impressive wrap-up, including on the biceps! 😂But seriously, congrats on the vaccination and thanks a whole lot for sharing about some great books, videos and links. I have seen some high praise for He can Creep — hope you liked it!
