I have read the reviews, listened to people’s opinions… and when all is said and done – I am a huge Atomic Blonde fan. The gore is dramatic, the fight scenes over-the-top, and the cater-lesbian scenes are ridiculous – but it just goes to show you just how entrancing a soundtrack can be. Because I am in love with this music. I adore the fact that it’s set in Berlin. I am listening to the song ‘Major Tom’ by Peter Schilling, and I cannot turn it off. That’s how much I liked it.
Single repeat. Again and Again and Again. It’s rare I find a song these days that I cannot stop listening to, and this whole soundtrack has enveloped me in this addictive loop (and I love it). What have I been up while listening to this song again? Not much…
Actually that’s untrue.
My dad visited last week for my birthday and it was so good to see him. It only takes half a second to remember how much I love spending time with him. It was utterly fantastic. I chatted to Jim on the phone this week, which plus my dad visiting put an enormous grin on my face. I’ve been chatting with some friends from home, preparing for Christmas, revamping the Sub-Stances website. In other news, I finally finished the PBYP program by Erin Motz and I’m officially a mentor for others. Some of my newest articles are up, including one about sex and yoga, and how to fake it until you make it.
I’m studying French, practicing German, bobbing my head along to Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie, and naturally applying to jobs. I’m attempting not to let it get to me (and I have to say – I’m pretty sure I’m succeeding). The stress could be so much worse than it is, and a daily dose of yoga does help. Thank goodness for accountability buddies. The days go on, as they say, and I’m just trying to find some excitement in my routine. Being an adult is fun…. sometimes – but exceptionally when there’s catchy music involved (Der Kommissar by Falco anyone?)
