READ

Big Data – Timandra Harkness

This was a great look at what Big Data is and how it relates to real life. It’s a great introduction and quite an easy read.

Crushing It – Gary Vaynerchuk

This is a follow-up of sorts to a previous book of his which I haven’t read. It has some very relevant points, especially on how to use social media for your personal brand.

WATCHED

Madam Secretary

3×12 The Detour

3×13 The Beautiful Game – I loved the scene where the Irani and Israeli players hugged each other after one team scored.

3×14 Labor of Love

3×15 Break In Diplomacy

3×16 Swept AwayI really loved the sand painting that the monks did.

3×17 Convergence – Becker, how dare you. Rhinos are awesome.

The Originals

3×09 Saviour: Loved that this was a Christmas episode. Also pleased to see Jackson saving Freya’s life.

3×10 A Ghost Along the Mississippi – Oh, the Strix is in trouble now. Mad Hayley AND mad Klaus? They should run

3×11 Wild At Heart – I’m looking forward to getting rid of Aya. She’s more than a tad irritating

3×12 Dead Angels – I’m so offended that Aurora had Hope’s favourite toy whittled down into nothing but bullets. That’s so rude!

3×13 Heart Shaped Box – I’m so glad that Klaus is making Hope a new wooden knight.

3×14 A Streetcar Named Desire – Love Freya and how she is totally done with Lucien. And a fitting end for Aurora

3×15 An Old Friend Calls – Love Freya and Kol doing magic together.

3×16 Alone with Everybody – that Helijah scene was heartbreaking, especially seeing how upset Elijah was. And how dare Lucien kidnap Freya!

3×17 Beyond the Black Horizon – Honestly, Lucien just becomes more arrogant as time goes on. I also cried when Finn died, which surprised me because I honestly wasn’t that invested in him.

3×18 The Devil Comes Here and Sighs – Interesting that Kol can’t leave New Orleans. The Ancestors REALLY don’t like him. Also, I’m reasonably sure the Ancestors are nuts.

3×19 No More Heartbreaks – Okay, I admit it, I cried when Cami died. This was a stellar episode from the cast, especially Leah Pipes

3×20 Where Nothing Stays Buried – Wow. Don’t really care about Davina, but just wow. Freya seems really upset at the whole thing and this team-up between Marcel and Vincent is worrying. Klaus talking with Hayley about Helijah was awesome. And so relieved we’ve gotten rid of Lucien.

3×21 Give ‘Em Hell Kid: Glad the link to the Ancestors is gone. Still don’t really care about Davina. Glad that Helijah is back on.

3×22 The Bloody Crown – Wow. This is another one of those episodes that has just got you saying wow. That scene with Hayley where she is left in the room while they are all put into their magical slumber was heartbreaking. I love where Freya put them all in the end. It was just a hugely powerful episode.

Captain America: The First Avenger – Doing a rewatch of these with Mum, so started with the first one in chronological order. This is a great movie – Chris Evans is excellent in this role.

Mindhunter

2×8 – I am finding Holden just gets on more nerves constantly. I’m not pleased to see them pull Wendy out of the field – she is good at it.
