Reading...
This novel which starts off with a meet cute in the NY subway is a charming and sweet romantic comedy in book form. The characters are actually likable and you find yourself rooting for their slow burn romance.

Watching...
A man starts working within a special division in a company of grim reapers following an accident that renders him half-human and half-spirit. The crisis management dept. is tasked with saving suicidal people. Despite the serious subject matter, the drama features light moments of physical comedy and promotes a meaningful message about appreciating life. Kim Hee Sun's hair and wardrobe are TTDF!

Watched...
This pirate comedy follows the absurd life of "gentleman" pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby from Flight of the Conchords) as he captures the attention of the terrifying legendary pirate Blackbeard (Taika Waititi). The two manage to find common ground and build a bond which leads to an unexpected twist. This show contains some serious undertones but it is also hilarious especially if you like offbeat humor.

Listening to...
I know that BTS is all the rage but if I had a favorite K-Pop boy group, it would be BTOB. The entire group is talented and they grow musically with each new release. Be Together is another solid album. Jackson Wang's newest English release Blow is a rollicking dance track with a 90's rock vibe that is my new exercise jam. The music video is 🔥 and Jackson is very easy on the eyes.

Eating...
I've been boosting my protein intake in line with my workouts and this cottage cheese which has 19 grams of protein along with a handful of berries makes a really good breakfast when I'm not on an intermittent fast.

Drinking...
This cherry blossom infused green tea with a subtle slightly fruity flavor is like springtime in a cup.

Working out with ...
These 3 lb. bar weights are the latest addition to our home gym. Their ergonomic design and even weight distribution make them ideal for use during my cardio workouts. And they look cool too. I still use my Bala Power Ring for strength training though.

Excited about...
Baseball is the only sport we follow in our house and the NY Yankees are our team.

I have always been put off my the texture of cottage cheese. I haven't ever tasted it. I am similarly not a fan of oatmeal etc. But during Ramadan I made some cracked wheat porridge (mainly because I found a bottle while cleaning out the kitchen) and it wasn't bad. And I would think of a similar texture.
Lol.. sorry for the ramble..

The romantic novel about a couple meeting on NY subway sounds like an enjoyable read. Our Flag Means Death looks like something that might be fun to watch. The premise of that series about a man tasked with saving suicides sounds fascinating.
