Sunday Musings #37: One with a lesson on taking things for granted

Hola people,

While I have productive on the blog front and otherwise, mentally it has not been a great week. 

I had a tough week processing and adapting to a few new changes in my life and I had not realized how easily we take a few things and people for granted without even knowing. Well, one thing led to another and soon I went on a spiral which obviously didn’t end so well. 

Well, I am okay now, just a bit tired. 

But on the bright side, I have taken up to running again. All the stress have made the unbelievable happen, I am being not lazy. At least this week I was not.

Hope the pleasant weather in Dubai and the pretty sights on my trail would keep me motivated. Fingers crossed.

What I watched:

Did anyone else watch the Netflix series Bodyguard on Netflix? I liked how it kept me hooked until the end and of course, their accent. 

I am hoping to watch Glass on the theaters this week, so I did my homework and watched the Unbreakable and rewatched the Split last week. Oh I also watched Incredibles 1 and 2 as well.

I watched too many movies for my own good right? Well it reflects on my reading.

What I read:

I am finally ticking off some of those bad boys from my TBR.

I added Eliza and her monsters about two years ago, when people were raving about its ARCs and I finally picked it as I needed to read something contemporary after the back to back classics I have been reading. 

And I should say it was worth the wait. Don’t forget to look out for its review soon. 

I am currently reading Persuasion by Jane Austen and Fahrenheit 451. Yes biggies, but I hope to manage. 

On my blog:

A quick recap of what happened on my blog last week, in case you were out of the loop.

  1. I definitely work better on a shorter deadline. The farther something is, the more I procrastinate so a long deadline ends up becoming short by default for me, lol.

    The Bodyguard is one of those shows everyone was talking about when it first aired on BBC One. I still haven’t caught up with it but I definitely want to! Glad you enjoyed.

    • I will have to check that out on Netflix as well but I am not sure if it is available on this side of the earth.

  2. Oh no, what happened? I hope everything’s alright. Happy to hear you’ve taken up running again though – I always struggle with exercise myself x.x

    P.S. I think Lia is from the Netherlands, although she doesn’t blog anymore. I’ll try to remember some more bloggers from Netherlands.

    And I’m totally marking that funniest Amazon titles post for later 😀

  3. Gosh, I’m sorry things weren’t going well for you. It’s good to hear you are doing better and running again. I watched too much telly this week too! Sometimes I go for days without turning it on, and then I binge everything.

  4. Good luck with the running. That’s awesome that you are doing something that has so many positive benefits. I am a HUGE fan of Eliza and Her Monsters. It was wonderful!

  5. Good luck with the running! And sorry to hear it was a rough week. I hope this one is better! I’m glad to hear that Eliza and her Monsters was good- I was mulling that over.

    Thanks for the links as well!

  6. I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had such a rough week. * Sending you a virtual hug * I hope this week is much better.

    I haven’t seen the bodyguard yet, but I’ve heard many great things. I’m glad you liked it so much. That actor sure is nice to look at too. 😀

    I’m from the Netherlands.. Maybe I can help you out?! You can email me at if you’d like. 😉

    Have a great week and happy reading.

  7. Sorry to hear you were not in a good place mentally

    Life changes are definitely not easy. Take all the time you need. At least you realize something and that’s much better than still being in the dark I hope things are going better now. I heard running is a wonderful therapy!

    • I agree with you, knowing is always better than being the dark. Thank you, things are lot better now.

  8. Oh, I’m sorry you didn’t have the best week mentally. I hope it gets better now.

    Eliza and her Monsters has been on my TBR since it’s release and I really should get to it sometime soon. It sounds like something I could enjoy quite a lot.

    And I fully intend to watch a lot of Netflix or movies next week! I really need the break. (And I have a few shows I need to catch up on: Blacklist & Lucifer)

    • I LOVED Eliza and her Monsters. You definitely have to read it! I Need to catch up on Lucifer as well.
