Now that September is almost over, I can finally share my July & August TV and film wrap-up (oops, for being über late!). Since July and August were the last two months before my Uni journey began, I took supreme advantage of the free time and watched as much stuff on my various watchlists as I possibly could!

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness was one of my most anticipated Netflix drops for the whole year. My most-anticipated series for all of 2021 had turned into one of the largest disappointments I’ve experienced in years.
Comics are one of my favourite things to read but I haven’t had a chance to really dive into some long-awaited titles thanks to life being a bit chaotic.

I don’t have a lot of homework this weekend, so I’m hoping to curl up on the couch in the cat room, where I’m going to pick through a couple of books and watch some Indian films. I still have a few that I’m reading from my previous weekend post
