Avengers: Infinity War : Because Spider-Man is my homeboy and this movie was kick-ass from A to goddamn Z! Except Hulk. They ruined Hulk since Thor: Ragnarok for me.

  1. You guys had quite a busy month! CONGRATS ON YOUR FREEDOM!!! 🍾 Wow— i couldn’t be more impressed with your busy blogging AND wrapping up all that work! Trang: what is next for you? Lashaan: Thesis done, when is the defense?

    1. Thanks Jackie! Since it’s a Master’s degree thesis and because of how it’s structured, I actually don’t have to do a defense for it. Next up is completing a PhD, and that’s probably going to way more tough, and will include the good ol’ thesis defense. 😀

      1. I’m impressed! Going straight for the PhD! Are you attending the same school for the PhD? I am certainly not that academic… 😉

        1. Still the same. Easier that way since my network is already pretty much established there hahah

  4. Oh it seems like you both had a great month. Congrats on finishing your bachelor course Trang, and that’s great you’re done with your thesis as well Lashaan. That’s brilliant for both of you. 🙂 ❤
    Also Trang I really hope you love Daughter of Smoke and Bone (it's one of my all-time favourite books so I really really hope you love it), and Lashaan wasn't Infinity War just incredible?! I can't wait for part two but can't believe there's a year to go still. 🙂
    Great post, and it seems like you both had an amazing month as well. 😀 ❤

    1. Thank you so much Beth! Yep, a whole year to wait before the REAL losses are dealt!!! At least there will be a bunch of other superhero movies to look forward to in the meantime (i.e. Deadpool 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Aquaman, Captain Marvel, etc.)! 😀 Have an awesome month of May, Beth!

      1. That’s all right, and yes I’m already looking forwards to the best superhero movie being released. It will help fill the hole until Infinity War part two is released! 😀
        Thanks Lashaan. 🙂 ❤️

  5. Congrats on both finishing your various Life Things!! Also YESYESYESYES to Sins of Empire. I haven’t gotten round to reading that one yet, but I did read Skullsworn and loved it so much. I can’t wait to read more of his work!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Thank you so much! Hahahah I think you got your authors mixed up there. I actually did read Skullsworn and that’s by Brian Staveley. Sins of Empire is actually by Brian McClellan who also wrote the Powder Mage trilogy (his books are well-worth checking out too!) 😀 Happy reading!

  6. I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t watched the new Avengers movie. However, I am like 8 Avenger movies behind haha. Congrats to both of you on the graduation and the thesis completion!

    Congrats to both of you in these big steps forward in life.

    Trang: with this BA, does this mean I can now request a full psychological profile of myself, for free? And get a blog post’s worth of material from it? If so, I’d like to sign up FIRST!

    Lashaan: like everyone else, what’s next? Are you going to have the summer off?

    Looking forward to another month of reading stuff from you two…

    1. Thanks man! And to answer your question: nop. I’ll probably never have a summer off for a while. Since this was a Master’s thesis, next up is a PhD and that’s going to keep me busy for a good 3 years. Right now my weekdays are filled up by work and research. Guess we could say that I’m ALWAYS reading, day and night. 😀

      Happy reading to you, good sir!

        Ahhh, so a phd. Well, best of luck with that! You are going to be one busy turkey.

        THAT kind of reading I could do without. I hope your mind survives and you don’t crumble into shambling burnt out hulk wandering around 😉

  13. Congratulations to you 2!! Must be a relief to be ‘free’ now hahaha

    I am so happy you like ‘Sins of Empire’, I am almost there! In the middle of ‘The Autumn Republic’ right now, but I will jump straight into the second trilogy, yay!!

    1. Yaaas!!! Thank you!! I’ll take as much freedom as I can cause I know it will only be short-lived hahah

      Honestly, I think you’re pretty lucky to start from scratch cause I actually didn’t read the Powder Mage trilogy before starting Sins of Empire. 😀 It doesn’t need to be read in that order though, but I think you’re in for some nice surprises when you get around to it since it does refer to it here and then and bring a bunch of plot twists for fans! 😀 I’ll be curious to hear your thoughts once you get around to it!!!

    I’m not usually a movie watcher, but the quiet place seems intriguing. I might make an exception 😀 Also, movie nights are great excuse for pizza, so there’s that too.
