Week In Review – March 9

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well! My week had some ups and downs, but overall, it was pretty good. I have spring break to look forward too now, so I’m excited to head home and spend some time chilling out.

This week, I started a new series on my blog called “The Poetry of Metal,” in which I analyze the lyrics of metal songs and show how the artists use literary techniques to convey their message. I analyzed “Panic Room” by Silent Planet this past week, so be sure to give it a read and let me know what I should write about next!

Internet Round-Up

In school… I’m not as busy as I was last week, but it was still pretty crazy with some exams and other big assignments. Spring break starts today though, and I’m excited to have a week off to chill out and catch up on stuff.

Writing… more poetry! I haven’t been working on much else outside of my poetry for class, but I’ve actually been enjoying these projects a lot. I just wrote a sonnet about Breath of the Wild (what else did you expect?), and I really like how it turned out, so I might try to write more Zelda-related poems in that style. We’ll see!

Reading… Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me by Carrie Ann DiRisio. The e-book was on sale on Amazon, so I picked it up. I really love it so far, especially with how it pokes fun a YA tropes and common issues YA novels run into. I also finished Warcross over the weekend, and I gave it 5 stars. A fantastic book!

Playing… Breath of the Wild again, which is definitely related to the sonnet-writing (see above). I just have four more shrines to find now, and while I’m not using a map to look for them, I have narrowed it down to which general area they might be in (basically, I compared a list of shrines by region with the ones I already found and… yeah. It was a long process).

Feeling… much better than I have been. The last week and a half was really rough for a number of reasons, but things are really looking up now. I’m glad I have spring break to chill out and refresh my mind a little.

Looking forward to… spending spring break with my family and working on some personal projects.

Thankful for… chocolate chip cookies, sleeping in, good times in class, getting the summer job I wanted, exploring Hyrule castle, and becoming the Pokemon Champion.

Readers, how was your week? Are there any books, movies, or video games that you’re excited about too? What are you looking forward to this weekend? Let me know in the comments!

See you Monday!
