March 2022 Wrap-Up

March was good! My birthday was at the beginning of the month and my sister threw a really nice party for me. I got REALLY into the JLA Blood & Ash series, which has taken up several late nights for me. I got a new job at a home goods store. I am so close to being done with classes for grad school (although I still have some other things to finish up before I get my degree). I’m looking forward to this summer!

Notable Posts by Others:

Other Media:

  • The Staircase. [Series; 2004/2018]: Sort of a case study of the criminal justice system. True crime. Overall interesting.
  • Happy Death Day 2U. [Film; 2019]: Corny, veers into sci-fi, not as good as the first, but still fun. Blog review.
  • Deadpool 2. [Film; 2018]: Fun, but I preferred the first.
  • The Shape of Water. [Film; 2018]: I don’t know how I went this long without seeing it. Very good, but overhyped for me. 😦
