What’s Up #16

Whats Up

A slight miscalculation on my part that these weekly What’s Up is always a few days after the week ends for the previous week. That means that there is one more week of What’s up for 2018. Reason to be this accurate is just because I’m trying to change the titling and how to do that for 2019. Either way, its been a few more days than normal off from work, which means that I did spend more time doing stuff.

Let’s see what I’ve been up to!

READING

  • The Slippery Slope (A Series of Unfortunate Events #10)

Currently Reading: The Grim Grotto (A Series of Unfortunate Events #11)

Chugging right along with A Series of Unfortunate Events, I finished The Slippery Slope and moved along to The Grim Grotto. The holidays took away a lot of reading time that I usually would have on public transport to and from work. Its not a bad thing per se but I had wanted to get further with the reading before starting up A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix, which as this posts goes up has just been updated with the final season.

PLAYING

Bound Game

Currently playing: Bound

I didn’t finish any games this past week. I’ve been playing mobile games  mostly to get better ideas on wrapping up the Mobile Games Round-up for December that just went live at the end of the month. However, for consoles, I’ve only been focusing on Bound, which I’m about two chapters away from being done. Its a pretty good experience although what drew me in the first place is starting to feel like a gimmick.

WATCHING

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
  • The Christmas Chronicles – rewatch (review)
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • The Devil’s Backbone
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Overlapping Christmas usually means a lot of Christmas movie. However, this year we wanted something a little different so decided to watch the Harry Potter franchise. We got through quite a few of them. I also go to watch The Devil’s Backbone for Movies and Tea Podcast, a movie that I’ve always been recommended to watch since forever. I definitely regret not seeing it sooner because it is pretty awesome.

BINGING

The Inn

Currently binging:

  • The Inn (Season 2) – one more episode until it ends
  • Who’s the Murderer (Season 4) – ongoing
  • Meteor Garden (2018) – rewatch
  • An Oriental Odyssey (2018) – rewatch

I’ve been spending a lot of time rewatching Meteor Garden primarily. I want to work on the video or analysis piece that I talked about back in August when I was watching this series the first time. Lots planned for the new Chinese focused content so we’ll see where we go from there. On that note, The Inn only has one more episode left so I’m feeling kind of sad already in anticipation while I believe Who’s the Murderer might be wrapping up soon also.

This wraps up this What’s Up!
We officially wrap up the What’s Up for 2018 and we’ll have a fresh start next week.
