New Goals and Resolutions for a New Year

Hand flipping wooden blocks for change year  2020 to 2021 . New

  • I am going to be taking better care of myself. Last year took a toll on my mental health and it not only affected my love of reading, it also affected the blog. My original goal for 2020 was to read 50 books and I only managed 29. So this year I plan to reach that goal and do my best!
  • I am going to get better at following through on author’s requests. I am ashamed to admit it, but I let requests fall to the wayside and get distracted by other books, my work, or just life getting in the way. To those people I deeply apologize and I’m sorry.
  • I am going to reread the Harry Potter series. This is a goal I have been trying to accomplish for several years now. I know J.K Rowling has had a lot of controversy and I was wondering how the books held up after all this time.

That’s pretty much what I have in mind for 2021 so far. As always I will also continue talking about movies, TV, and mental health. I am looking forward to seeing what this year has in store for my fiancĂ© and I. I am just trying to hold onto hope and trying to survive during these difficult times.

Stay safe and hope to see you back here for my review of Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket Raccoon and Groot Steal the Universe by Dan Abnett!

My Thoughts on The Masked Singer

APZOCHJBI5R6AM2665DPYWZUWM

When The Masked Singer was first announced I originally thought it was a dumb idea. I’m not a fan of Nick Cannon or any of the panelist, so whenever something huge happened on the show I’d read the spoilers because I thought I’d never watch the show anyhow. I am not a fan of reality TV, most of the time I’m not interested in the toxicity and drama that Hollywood concocts for cheap views and clickbait.

However, a couple of months ago, I thought I’d give it a chance because I was out of shows to binge or rewatch and I became hooked. Once you get over the initial weirdness, this show has a lot to say about the difference between celebrity and average people as well as the older legends trying to stay relevant to the newer generation.

Part of me is hopeful that what these masked celebrities are telling in their clue packets are genuine, that we all have doubts, self-esteem issues, or that we all feel like the black sheep in a group of people. The other part of me says that the producers and writers are just putting in those manufactured emotions in order to tell a story where they can place the clues throughout.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving this year! I know 2020 has been tough on everyone, and so I just want everyone to be able to safely enjoy Thanksgiving with friends and family.

That being said, I’m hoping to have a blog update coming up. I know I have been radio silent this month, but there’s a reason for that. However, for now let’s enjoy some quality time whether you’re spending it with family or not. Either way, just stay safe.
