The Weekly Wrap — February 26th, 2020

February 26, 2020

The Weekly Wrap is a new post I’ll be doing every week where we’ll talk about current reads, recently finished reads, what I’m listening to, games I’m playing, movies I’m watching, and general life stuff. ♥ If you’re a fan of my past WWW Wednesday & The Sunday Post updates, you’ll love this combination of the two!

what I watched:

? Rabid (2019) — ⭐⭐⭐? (It wasn’t perfect, but I did have a lot of fun with it and really enjoyed the ending!)
? Girl on the Third Floor (2019) — ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (I really loved this, and it was kind of funny because I didn’t know CM Punk was the main character after having just seen him have a cameo in Rabid. The makeup SFX in this were soooo gross and awesome.)
? Countdown (2019) — ⭐⭐⭐? (This was honestly super cheesy at times, but I liked the premise of it.)
? Annabelle Comes Home (2019) — ⭐⭐ (I’m so disappointed to say that I couldn’t even tell you much of what happened in this because I was so bored, I started cleaning and blogging while watching it and missed a fair bit.)

life updates:

This was a bit of an up-and-down week; on one hand, I got a lot of things done I’d been wanting to do for a while, and that always makes me feel good! On the other hand, my seasonal depression finally showed up (to think I was beginning to wonder if I could make it through a winter without it? Ha!) so that has had me down a bit lately, though today is a pretty good day so far. I have a lot of videos I’m hoping to film over the next few days plus a lot of blog posts I want to write AND a lot of reading I want to do! I’m still hoping I can hit the 29-book mark by the end of February, so maybe The Graphics Readathon will get me there. Fingers crossed! Maybe I should take a mini-twitter hiatus so I can get some stuff done. ?

    1. Oh my god this is such a great idea, I might try doing something like this! I’m honestly so jealous how much you get done in a week, I clearly need to do better with planning my life out lol. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on The Shadow of What Was Lost and Seven Deadly Shadows!
