COMIC BOOK REVIEWS.
VIDEO GAME REVIEWS.
With only three more volumes to this series, I just want to savour each page as I progress, although I do fear that the last stories might not be up to par with this volume…
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.
I finally finished this manga series but unfortunately disillusioned myself of its excellence. It still holds a special place in my heart but it clearly isn’t the masterpiece I claimed it was as a kid! 😛
Out of the 16 movies I watched in March, Blindspotting (2018) was my favourite. It’s a thought-provoking, nerve-racking, and ambitiously-audacious story on class, race, gentrification, and rehabilitation through two lifelong friends—brilliantly portrayed by Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal—who embodies the soul of Oakland with an ingenious social commentary that reflects timely matters on identity, prejudice, and culture.
At least I know I’ll be done with this one next month! 🙂
I don’t know what I was thinking when I thought I could get back in my reading groove in March but this month has been insane from start to finish! I can’t blame myself for not being able to read and blog as much as I would’ve wanted to considering everything that popped up throughout the month. For starter, I didn’t, at all, consider the lecture preparation that I had to do for the classes I had to give. And then, I didn’t take into consideration the students’ deadline for an assignment which I had to correct within two weeks (roughly 60 students). With my usual 35-hour workload, I had to cut my spare time to do all these things and I clearly felt that increased difficulty to try and find time to read without dozing off.
While these responsibilities did take a lot of my time, I was able to continue to read a little here and there on top of doing other hobbies that didn’t require too much cognitive energy. I was also quite happy that gyms were reopened to the public towards the end of the month, allowing me to squeeze in more sport into my life again! I’m just going to hope that the upcoming third wave doesn’t kill all this once again.
If there’s anything that this month has taught me, I’d say that it made me realize even more how time management is not an easy art to master and that sometimes, especially when you commit to multiple responsibilities, you HAVE TO prioritize things.
While the semester isn’t over yet and I’ll still have the final exam towards the middle of April to correct but I’m much, much more optimistic that April will be a better month…
I swear I can see the end of this tunnel! I’m telling you!
