Week 25 is here! 2019 is going by so far that summer has landed which also brought along a busy busy weekend. I’ll talk more about the busy bit in the weekly adventures coming at the end of June. With everything going on, suffice to say that I just didn’t have quite the energy to get a ton of stuff done on the relaxing front. However, we did also have a long weekend so it had some perks. 🙂
Currently reading: Lifelike
Things are getting exciting for Lifelike as I am nearing the third-quarter of the book. Its been a tiring week so I haven’t had quite the focus or energy to read but the book is definitely picking up. I am starting to have some solid thoughts on how I feel about it. Now to see how it wraps everything up. At the same time, I think its a good starting point to read Jay Kristoff especially since we can see a comparison of how Jay Kristoff writes individually compared to co-writing The Illuminae Files Trilogy since both are science fiction.
Currently playing: Fe
Fe has been a game that I’ve been looking forward to play since it was announced a year or two ago. While its always been slightly fuzzy about what the gameplay actually is, it just looks so cute. This week, I finally sat down to start it up. While the whole open world adventure game isn’t exactly my usual gaming preference, it has a lot of really nice elements so far. Plus, it remembers to turn things around as the enemies now have shown up at where I’m at in the game. I’m still a tad too early to really talk about how I feel about the game as a whole but its still pretty enjoyable, just as long as I get myself oriented in the open world map. 😉
Only one movie watched this week. To be fair, I actually did rewatch Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong because its just my routine to watch it more than once but it was more as background noise so I didn’t bother to add it to the list again. Homefront has been sitting on my Netflix list for a while and the husband’s been doing the weekend movie night picks lately and he was in the mood for some Jason Statham action. Suffice to say, this one was less action which I feel might have been slightly disappointing and it was a little more slow-paced. However, the movie was alright. It had some frustrating parts and some of it was rather predictable but it was still pretty good because of its cast. I’ll have the double feature going up for this one soon-ish…
- Great Escape (Season 1, 2019)
- Heart Signal (Season 1, 2018)
Currently binging: “Your Highness” Class Monitor, Love Timing, Idol Producer (Season 2)
TV binging is definitely going down a little this past week. Great Escape wrapped up and that was a fun episode as it confirmed the season 2 and got this cast to fight for the privilege of having their entire crew back for season 2 (which they did win) so I’m pretty excited for that. These types of shows are on an annual basis so it returns sometime in 2020. It was a fun 6 locations, story-based escape room game that was a ton of fun because of what each of these people brought to the table. Its a nice dynamic and I truly hope they all end up coming back for Season 2 or at least they can schedule it into their busy life. I also started up Heart Signal, the first season which is where (I believe) these social dating shows started up before Dream Space and Love Timing did because Heart Signal just started its Season 2. Sadly, Heart Signal season 1 only had half of its season fully on Youtube on their Tencent channel however I found a ton of snippets and pieced the rest of it together. However, I’m doing something a little different for this so I might finish Season 2 and release that post afterwards. On that note, I haven’t started Heart Signal Season 2 yet because Love Timing ends in one episode and I don’t want to start too many so that I don’t get too confused with the people involved.
That’s it for What’s Up!
I’ll be sharing a lot of news in My Weekly Adventures which should explain the lack of stuff this time..
as well as some upcoming things confirmed now for July.
