I thought this week would never come, but it’s here! I actually have a week off with no classes (yay!). We took finals over the weekend, and we get a little break this week. I am extra excited because we didn’t have a break last year. We had finals on a Sunday and then class again on the Monday.
If you don’t already know, I am in the FlexMBA program at UMD. This means that I am a working professional and that I am also a graduate student. What does this mean for me? Very little time to fit in leisurely things into my schedule. So, for this week, I am going to catch up on things I have missed out on due to lack of available time. First thing’s first, television. Here is what I am looking forward to watching:
Either you live under a rock or you’ve heard about or have probably watched Squid Game. The Korean drama has quickly become one of Netflix’s most streamed shows. I can’t say that I’m super excited to be watching because I heard it’s pretty violent which isn’t really my thing. But my fiancé suggested we watch so at least I’ll have him as a buffer. That and I’ll finally be able to join in on the countless conversations and memes around this new cult phenomenon.
Grey’s Anatomy has a very special place in my heart. The doctor-filled drama is on its 18th season. Normally I would have been counting down the days until the season premiere. But, being a grad student, I didn’t even realize that I have already missed three episodes. I am looking forward to catching up with my favorite surgeons, especially the main character, Meredith, who had a scare with Covid for most of season 17.
Ready to Love
Ready to Love is a breath of fresh air for reality TV. Think of your favorite dating shows that used to air on MTV back in the day, but with grown-ups who (seemingly) have their lives together. I love this show because it is a dating show where most of the contestants are ages 30 and up (like me). The current season was actually filmed in DC so I’m going to enjoy seeing familiar DC places in the backdrop of the scenes.
If I had more than a week’s break, I would add more shows to watch. But these three should keep me busy for this week. What shows are you currently watching?
