February went by really fast for me, but I was able to discover a lot of new things – both within my internal (self) world and external world.
This is the start of a new project I’ll be doing – a end of the month roundup, where I’ll be sharing what I’m working on, learning and enjoying. This is all in alignment to Self-Development, Personal Growth and Self-Care – 3 aspects that have been priority in my life.
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions or comments!
On the Blog…
I admit – 2017 was a slow year for American in Vienna. Not only was I bogged down by a full-time job, but going through some personal things as well – so my focus was more placed on my well-being and basic survival.
Now, since I have more free-time, I can share myself more, and recommend more things to you all!
A Man Called Ove: You can read my movie reviewhere
Marvel’s Black Panther: You can read my movie reviewhere
Enter the Dragon: Bruce Lee’s first and last Hollywood-madefilm. It was awesome to see him and how he moved. Also was neat to watch a movie from the 70’s – the outfits and hair styles were fun to observe.
My partner Aldin has never seen the Lord of the Rings, The Goonies, and Indiana Jones movies. So far we watched them all except the last 2 Indiana Jones movie in February.
My TV show indulgence is currentlyHouse of Cards.To me, it’s so well-made it’s delicious – everything from the characters, to the look of the film, the scenery and music… I learn so much about the nature of man (power and corruption) through this show. Provides points for me to introspect who I am within certain situations. My #1 favorite show.
As long time King of Queens fans Aldin and I enjoy Kevin James’s new showKevin Can Wait
SOON: Going to be watching Germany’s version of Stranger Things calledDARKon Netflix! Looking forward to it!
Currently Reading: Dan Brown’sORIGIN: I am alllllllllmost done with this book. I’ve been slow with it because I’ve allowed other things to get in the way from one of my favorite lesiure activities – reading. So now I carve time out in the morning before I start my work (45 minutes of reading). If I have time at night, I read before bed.
Next Book in Line:Women Who Run with the Wolvesby Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Because it’s such a big book – the book club I’m in is giving us 2 months to read it (whew!).
