Insert Interesting Blog Post Title Here

I never know what to call these update posts. I’ll have to think about a name I can use every week and just change the date on the post title. That’s a job for this week. Anyway, I hope you’ve all had a good week, and everything’s going well.

Last Sunday was very exciting. After I put up my review for the excellent The Devil to Pay, the writers/directors Lane and Ruckus Skye retweeted my review and tweeted about it. I really loved the film and it made my day, to be honest. I highly recommend the film, and I’m excited to check out Becky that they also wrote. My mum tells me it’s great, so that’s one I’ll be watching as soon as possible.

Other than that not a lot has really happened, I’ve been walking more, determined to get in shape. My watch raised my challenge to 11,000 steps a day because I’d hit 10,000 for so many days in a row, so I’ve agreed and hit that every day this week so far. That’s going pretty well and I’m slowly loosing weight. I just need to cut back on the eating.

Onto this week, I’ve got a review for See for Me being posted later today. I really enjoyed this one, it’s a dark thriller. Similar to Don’t Breathe, but with a much more likable protagonist. Scream 5 is out this weekend. I’m very excited for this one. Scream is one of my favourite series. I re-watched the first 2 last year and need to watch 3 + 4 again this week. I didn’t write reviews for the first 2, but I’m going to try and write it for 3 + 4. Almost all of the films I’ve reviewed are from my first watch, apart from probably 4 or 5 films, and all of those have been re-releases, where I’ve focused on the Blu-ray as well. It feels like a challenge to write a review for something I’ve seen a few times, so that’s my challenge for Scream 3 + 4.

I’m still working on getting ahead on film reviews, so I can take it a little easier. It’s been going okay so far, I’ve got 2 reviews to write, that I’ve got notes for. Those will be written for tomorrow. I want to get 20 reviews written that I can put up at any point, just so I don’t miss a day. That’s my target, and I’ll be happy once I’ve gotten there.

Because all of my free time is taken up with watching films, I haven’t read anything this year at all yet. That’s something I really want to change as soon as possible. I’ve got a lot of books that I want to read, but don’t spend anytime doing it. Once I’m ahead on the films I can dedicate an hour a day to reading. I spend too much time endless scrolling on social media, which is a habit I want to break.

That’s what I want to achieve this week, getting closer to my 20 reviews in advance, continue my 11,000 steps a day, and spend less time on Twitter and more time reading books. Oh and come up with a name for my update posts.

What are your plans this week? Let me know in the comments and I hope you have a fantastic week.

Thanks for reading and until next time,

  2. Haha, your blog post title cracks me up! Maybe R13 is onto something, though. You have good goals for this week. I hope you are doing well with them. This week for me: a Kindle novelette release and many, many household chores related to our upcoming move.
