How are you all doing? I am grateful that the whole of March 2020 is done now and we are into a new month. Despite everything that is saying in the contrary, I am excited to step into April. And it is just not about being my birthday month, but also because.. Okay I am lost. It is definitely only about my birthday!
I know. I know. The world looks grim and futile, in general. And mostly my birthday is gonna be super ultra low key, but still that is the only thing that is helping me face the day and continue to hear more morbid news. So let me have it. Please.
Also let us talk about some of the good things that happened in March 2020. Or at least try to.
Quick May’19 updates
- Just before the social distancing fervor started, I took a trip to the beach and had dinner at one of my favorite places.
- And guess what? I think I have not stepped out after that, other than the one time I had to buy grocery from a store. Well, there is a thing called door delivery, so I have not stepped out of my house in 15+ days now. I should get an award, y’all.
- We had some rain in Dubai. And the clouds looked really scary. Photos for reference.
Well, nothing else happened in March, okay? I give up.
What I read this month:
March 2020 was an average reading month for me. I read 5 books and no 2 or fewer stars among them. Good right?
- Poet X, The by Elizabeth Acevedo
- From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon
- Bride Test, The by Helen Hoang
- 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak
- Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner
And I am currently reading The Sittaford Mystery by Agatha Christie.
That gives me a chance to show where I stand on my 2020 A to Z reading challenge now.
What I watched this month:
Here is a list of my top pick of movies and TV series I watched in March 2020 in no particular order.
