A rather dull May’22: Sunday Musings #130


It has been ages since I wrote a monthly update. You know it feels weird to do this, as if so much time has passed but nothing has changed. I can see that six months since I wrote this, but honestly I am not sure if there is anything to show. Annoying right?

But hey, I at least am writing one now. Enough chitchats, let us take a view of what happened last month, shall we?

Quick May’22 updates

  • I moved to full time employment after years of freelancing and part timing. I am still figuring things out but it seems fun.
  • In an attempt to get myself to read more, I went to the library and picked 4 books. Sadly all of them are still untouched. I also grabbed some coffee with my friends after the library trip.
  • I got a new phone, and I am enjoying the better memory and not enjoying the huge size.
  • Some container bell pepper plants survived the dust storms and heat this month. And we had a good harvest of yellow peppers, a miracle by itself.
  • Also I am finally writing on my blog. Granted it is just updates and reviews, but it is a start.

What I read this month

Reading wise a really poor month, and I just didn’t find the motivation to. Something to work upon this month, I guess.

I read just one book this month, Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert, and I had to push myself to read it, despite liking it.

What I watched this month

So the new Marvel movie was out this month and I really enjoyed it. Here are a few things that I watched in May’22.

  • Russian Doll – liked it
  • Stranger things – S4 – It was good
  • Kim’s convenience store – Rewatching couple of episodes
  • Lincoln Lawyer (movie & series) – Movie was good, series was bleh
  • Dr Strange – had to rewatch before I watched the new one
  • Madness of Multiverse Dr Strange – Loved it
  • Fairfax – Man, I enjoyed every snarky episode
  • Killing Eve S4 – a lot slower than I expected.

  1. Hi Elgee! Congrats on having a permanent position! I’m sure you will adapt soon enough and time for reading will appear again. We tend to always revert back to what we love.

    I haven’t see the new season for The Lincoln Lawyer. Loved the book and the movie though!

    Have a good week and I hope you will have some time for reading.

  2. It is hard to get back in the swing of blogging. I do great with my book blog but lack the motivation to keep up with my other blog (even though I want to, it’s weird). I hope you have a great week.

  3. Job changes always mean a period of readjustment and finding a new work-life balance. I hope you find yours soon. I have weeks where I struggle to read but thankfully it’s not lasted much more than a few days. I hope you find a book that grabs your attention soon.
    Have a great week.

  4. I haven’t been to the library since before the Pandemic! I was using the app for e-books, but then my card expired! I need to go into renew it, I guess.

    Congrats on the job, and I hope you enjoy it.

    I actually loved The Lincoln Lawyer miniseries, but that’s me, I guess. LOL

    Have a great week!

  5. Congratulations on your new job! 🙂 I hope you enjoy it.

    I’m glad to hear that you loved the new Dr. Strange movie. I did too. It’s easily one of my favorites in the MCU.

  6. Congrats on the job- and the new phone. When I got my new phone it was larger too, and it took a lot of getting used to!

    I’ve been meaning to watch Killing Eve.

  7. We all take breaks. I kind of took a two year break where I kept trying to push myself to read and blog, but it was just so much WORK… and not in the fun usual way. What I find works is reading a book by my favorite authors, or rereading a fave.

  8. Congratulations on the new job and I can understand about the phone! It’s getting time for me to replace mine and I haven’t found one I really like yet – some are absolutely massive. Have a wonderful week!

  9. I’m glad to read you got a permanent position and that you seem to enjoy it. That’s awesome.
    I have been hearing some great things about Killing Eve. I hope to be able to start watching it soon.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  10. Congratulations on the full time job! I hope you continue to like it.

    I had to get a new phone this winter and I love it but hate how large it is. Women already have practically useless pockets, now I have to fit this massive thing somewhere? I only carry a tiny purse and wallet and the phone barely fits in there!

    We’re only two episodes in to Stranger Things. Man, this season is taking a dark turn! We’re also slowly re-watching all the Marvel movies in order so we aren’t quite ready for the new Dr. Strange yet. I think Infinity War is next in our re-watch.

    Have a great week!

    • I am with you on small fingers and pockets. Now I have to carry a bigger purse everywhere. I hate it.

  11. I so love my trips to the library! Ever since it opened back up, I’m enjoying seeing my favorite librarians and perusing the aisles. I’m sure you will find your reading groove again. Take good care!
