Well now. Life has got a little weird, hasn’t it? It’s been three full months since I last wrote on the blog, and my haven’t things changed.
I’ve found myself with a little more time on hands of late (haven’t we all), so I thought it was a good time to get back into blogging. Of course, what will probably happen is that I’ll write this post and then completely forget to write anything else for another three months!
I’m trying to use this enforced time at home to work on my 38 Before 38 list, but the truth of it is that a lot of the things on there involve leaving the house, so they will probably remain uncompleted. And I had such high hopes for this list! But the book, television and film ones should be easier this year, and I’m already trying to tick off a few animated films, female-directed films, and Best Picture winners.
I’d probably be getting through a few more if it wasn’t for the existence of Disney+ – we’ve had it for just under two weeks now and we’re slowly making our way through the MCU films. I have obviously seen them all a lot, but it’s hard to resist the urge to watch them from start to finish. We’re currently on Guardians of the Galaxy, so right in the middle of Phase 2. My Letterboxd diary contains a lot of rewatches at the moment!
I’m working from home, like most people, which I never thought I’d adapt too well too, as I like the structure of a day in the office. But it helps that I both live and work with Hannah, so we are pretty good at keeping each other on track.
There’s no denying that times are strange, but I’m set up quite well to spend a lot of time at home. I like going out, but I am quite comfortable staying at home. It helps that I have a best friend to live with, so I’m not alone. It also helps that the sun has been shining, which makes everything feel better. I know that a lot of people are struggling with the current situation for a variety of reasons, so my heart goes out to you, and if you’re reading this and you just need a friend, please feel free to say hi to me on Instagram, or Twitter, or by email.
I’m hoping to be back later in the week with some book reviews and some other posts that are bubbling up in my brain. Let’s see if I can manage it!
