Not as many things as last month but some great gems I have to say!

First up is seeing Dune: Part 1 in theatres for the first time in IMAX which was an absolutely spectacular experience and I am now an IMAX enthusiast. Catch me never shutting up about it and I’m literally watching P2 tonight,,,

My other new favourites are the first 2 seasons of True Detective aka yet another genius HBO crime show that wrecks me every time. Excellent storytelling if I ever saw it and if you’re also late to the party, you should get on this show!!!!

Other than that, I also went to see The Holdovers and Bob Marley: One Love, which were really great. Unfortunately, I saw The Beekeeper which was completely awful. I came home to find Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret on Netflix which I really enjoyed which made me feel a bit better. Also rewatched Love, Rosie and Twilight which were fun as always *sighs*

To end us off, switching it up by mentioning some music (not the TS abum though that is exciting!) but instead, The Wind by Cat Stevens which I heard not only in The Holdovers but also in Are You There God? which was a funny coincidence.

Ummm so yeah, I think I mentioned job hunting the last time we spoke? If not, I’m mentioning it now hehe

I had the privilege of doing some work with Tandem Collective which was an absolute blast!

And then during that I got offered a year-long internship position at Blue Weaver Marketing, which is a book marketing company but they do a bit of everything really and it’s really exciting. So I have a job now! Literally have been there ONE day so not much to share. I’m taking it as it comes and need to smooth out a schedule and the likes. But I’m super excited!!!
