So this is awkward. I haven't had much to note for this week's FOTW, instead my list for what I've watched this week on Netflix has gotten really long. But before I show you what I've been watching all week after finally signing up for Netflix, I'll get to the nitty-gritty of what is actually relevant this week.
In the life
– Slowly I'm turning into Rory as I get more and more motivated to prepare for exams in early February. That will keep me from writing my stories but I am motivated to keep writing as well. Let's see how that turns out.
– I am finally able to invest in a good Blue Yeti microphone as I plan on recording podcasts and maybe even make videos. I want to record covers with the microphone as well. You can't take my word on this but I'm happy to try baby steps!
Holy moly. I started reading Sebastian Fitzek's 'The Nightwalker' and finished it in less than two days. I'm still stunned and can't wait to post a review on it next week! So stay tuned because this thriller is one of a kind!
