It’s time for another ‘in the life of Jolien’ post today, as September comes to an end. Let’s talk about the movies and TV shows I watched, the music I listened to, and the things I did in the past month!
Deadpool 2 – 3.5/5 stars
I watched Deadpool 2 on the plane to South Korea, as I had quite a long flight ahead of me. I was so excited to see this movie on their entertainment offerings list, because I had been waiting for ages to watch it. Somehow, I never ended up going to the theater to watch this, even though I loved the first Deadpool movie. I did really enjoy this, and it definitely made me laugh at times. But I didn’t love it as much as I did the first one.
The Dragon Prince – no rating yet, but definitely liking it so far
I saw everyone on Twitter talking about this new animated Netflix show, so I decided to give it a go myself. I’ve watched three episodes so far, and I’m really enjoying it! I feel like I can’t truly give a detailed opinion or rating yet, because I’ve watched so little of it. But I’m planning on continuing the series soon!
Chanyeol x Sehun – We Young
We have been waiting on an EXO comeback for a while now, so I was really happy to see Chanyeol and Sehun put out a song together! I adore this song, and I’ve listened to it so many times in the past month.
AOA – Bingle Bangle
Listen, I’m not usually into the cutesy concept so I wouldn’t have started listening to this song on my own. But it was playing on the TV during breakfast at the hostel I was staying at in Seoul and man, is this song catchy. I’m not kidding, it’ll get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Good luck with that!
Quite a lot has happened in September! For example, I turned 24! That’s right, my birthday has come and gone once again. I am now almost a quarter of a century old. Yay!
On September 4th, I left for my solo trip to South Korea and Thailand. As I am typing this, I am in my hostel in Busan waiting for the rain to stop. So on the 4th, my dad drove me to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam (about a 2,5h drive). I had to wait in the airport for a few hours, and then had my first flight (of 2,5 hours) to Helsinki. Another 2-hour wait later, I was on the plane to Korea, which took about 8 hours. All in all, it was a long day.
I spent 3 weeks in Seoul, and loved every second of it. Honestly, it’s such a great city! There’s so much to do and see, I could’ve stayed for years and not grown tired of it. Unfortunately, I didn’t have years. On September 27th, I took the train to Busan (fortunately without zombies), where I currently am. In a few days, I’ll move on to Jeju and Bangkok before going home.
It’s been a busy month, but I’ve had so much fun discovering Korea. I can’t believe so much time has passed already…
That was my month of September! How was yours?
