Oh my, it really has been a long time since I posted the seventh edition of this post. I feel like I said that about the sixth edition too though.
However, this time I have a reason (or an excuse, you can decide). I have been rewatching all the Marvel films. I decided to write about those in a separate post though. So yeah, since watching the Marvel films, I’ve not had much time for other films which is why it’s taken me so long to watch enough films for another one of these posts.
But anyway, let’s rate films!
As always, some of these films are re-watches and some of these films are first time watches.
Now, here are my rating of my most recently watched films.
‘Wrapped in real family history and set amongst the natural beauty of the Irish countryside, Roots is a classic romantic-comedy adventure and a page-turning account of a young woman finding herself. On a journey to the old world ― she discovered a whole new world. After a messy year of heartbreak and setbacks, Tara sets off to Ireland in search of clues to her family’s ancestry, but what she found wasn’t at all what she expected. Some of it has to do with the lack of records, but a lot has to do with John, the charming cartoonist she met on Twitter.’
I stumbled upon this book when scrolling through Prime Reads on Amazon. Graphic novels are one of my favourite things to read and this one seemed pretty simple and cute so I decided to give it a go.
As a single woman who has been through quite a few failed relationships, I feel like there’s quite a lot of things I’ve learned now that I wish someone would have told me when I first started dating.
Back in June, I shared a post with you all where I explained that I was going through a break up. Since then I have been in and out of the dating scene and it just made me realise a few things that I felt like I should share.
All I can think about is food. I will go to the local corner shop and buy as much ‘bad’ foods as I can, then I’ll go home and eat until I physically can’t swallow anymore. I’m spending so much money on food yet I never feel fully satisfied.
My relationship with food is confusing. I have all the knowledge I need to know what foods to be eating more or less of, I know all about portion sizes and I even know about macros. However, when I see food, my mind pretends to know nothing and just grabs whatever it can.
As you can probably imagine, this kind of eating pattern has meant that I have gained quite a lot of weight. But I’ll explain more on that soon. Let me just take you back to the beginning quickly.
Ah, social media. My favourite way to waste hours of my day.
Back at the start of 2020 (which feels like a lifetime ago), I shared my 2020 social media strategies. I’m not really sure if they helped me all that much during the year, but that’s not going to stop me from sharing my social media plans for 2021.
I really do have a love-hate relationship with reading. I spent most of 2019 and 2020 in a huge reading slump that made me think I would never enjoy reading again. Luckily, one day at the start of December 2020, I felt in the mood to read a little bit before going to sleep one night.
I’m so grateful that my past self decided to try reading again. I managed to finish that book I had started by reading a little bit each night before going to sleep. I’m now reading my way through a second book and I am loving it.
Since I’m feeling the reading love these days, I figured I should make a little list of books that I want to read during 2021.
