The Weekend Blog
3rd August 2014
It’s the weekend! Hooray! Not that the weekend is any different to the rest of the week for me. I’m still on my summer break and so everyday feels the same.
I’ve had a relatively quiet week. The weather has returned to its normal miserable self which ruined our plans of visiting Chester on Saturday. And so we decided to postpone Chester until next week and used our rainy day to go to the cinema to see Guardians of the Galaxy.
Bhairavi asked if I was going to review the film. I said “maybe” but in truth I’m not good at reviewing films. I leave the cinema and forget all the little details that are required to write a review. However, I will share a few thoughts and feelings without spoiling it for anyone else.
Guardians of the Galaxy was pretty amazing. It was funny, fast paced and entertaining throughout. Of what I can remember, there were no dull and boring moments that would normally leave me looking at my watch. A film like that will always get a thumbs up from me.
Loved – Groot. A character with such a beautiful heart.
Disliked – Karen Gillan. There was nothing wrong with her character; I just can’t stand her as a person. (Yeah, I struggled with a ‘dislike’ and had to get picky).
I highly recommend you go and see it. At one point it was rated to highly on IMDb that it was the 4th best film in the top 250. Surely that says enough.
In other news, I had my second physiotherapy appointment on Thursday, which went really well. I had a therapeutic ultrasound on my hip which felt (strangely) really nice. I think it’s suppose to stimulate the tissue and reduce swelling (or something like that). I can already feel my hip muscles developing. The area of scaring looks more bulked out too. Finally, I’m making progress!
Also, I’ve started working on my dissertation. I’ve finally gone with sustainable tourism as my research topic. In addition, I’ve seen a draft timetable for my third year of university. Looks like I might only be in uni two days a week! Let’s hope it stays that way, and then I’ll be easily able to keep up with physiotherapy and the blog.
