A Little Late to the Party, March Wrap Up

Happy April everyone!  After a little hiatus, I’m happy to report that I’m finally in good health and have my schedule put back together and blog posts will be up regularly.  I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter.  I got to spend an extra long weekend at home, which was absolutely wonderful!

So let’s jump right into the things I loved last month!

Reading

I didn’t do a great job with my reading list this month, but I did  make progress on the second Harry Potter book in Spanish.  The main thing I was reading though was Seamless.  I decided to read this Bible Study daily throughout Lent and it was such an incredible study.  I feel like it really did meet it’s goal of making the Bible out as one seamless story.  No matter where you’re at in your Bible knowledge, this is a great study to invest in and I think everyone could take away some good information from it!

Listening

I listened to a lot of podcasts as I was traveling last month, so I’m excited to share a couple with you!

The first I’ll share is called The Walk.  It’s an immersive podcast that puts you into the story.  The premise is semi apocalyptic in that there was a blast that rendered phones and technology useless, but you have this special device that needs to be delivered to the “good guys” while avoiding the “bad guys.”  From what I’ve read, the episodes are made to listen to while you yourself are walking, much like your character in the show, codename Walker.  Each episode lasts for about enough time to walk one to two miles.  I think it’s such a creative way to encourage exercise while telling an awesome story.

I also listened to the entire first season of Serial.  I’m sure most of you have heard of this one, but it was fascinating to follow the case of Adnan.  Their website provides images of all of the physical evidence in the case, and the show has produced a few follow up episodes since the original season in 2014.  It’s fun to hear all of the evidence and try to think like a detective to figure out your take on what happened to Hae Min Lee.

I listened to my February playlist a lot throughout March, but here is the March.18 Spotify playlist!

Watching

This month, I watched a lot of Parks and Recreation.  I only have two seasons left to finish this month so I will do a more comprehensive review when I finish it all the way, but I will say that this show makes me laugh so hard.  I downloaded some episodes from Netflix for my plane ride to Cancun and was sitting there laughing to myself for almost the entire ride.  Other people probably thought I was crazy!

I also discovered Imposters.  It’s a con story with tons of twists and turns.  I don’t want to give too much away, but I love the characters and the whole premise.  The entire first season is on Netflix and season two is live on Bravo.  The first episode aired on April 5.  It’s an awesome watch, so be sure to check it out, and as they say on the show: always forward, never  back.

Goals

My February goal was to be more active and go for walks regularly.  Although I think I made an improvement, the weather was not entirely cooperating and it has gotten pretty cold again.  In fact, it’s snowing right now.  Hopefully it will warm up soon so that this goal can be accomplished more fully.

My goal for this month is to be organized and productive.  As you may know, I’m moving home towards the end of May.  In order to make the transition a little less daunting, I’ve been doing a lot of work at home to make the switch as easy as possible.  Now that it’s April, I would like to start bringing home some of the nonessential items so that I can put them in their new places and not have an overwhelming amount of packing and unpacking to do in one weekend.

Photo Challenge

Since I’m a little late to the game this month, I want to try something different!  I’d love to see the pictures you post this month, so feel free to use #apriltidbitswithtara to share them!

I’d also love to see any #earthday pictures on the 22nd and #treehugger pictures on Arbor Day, the 27th.
