Fun Findings Friday #154

Well, hello, Friday! Another week down, and this one felt like a fast-forward button was being pushed on all week. I guess that’s just how super-busy weeks go! My big focus through this weekend is my marketing class, that has just over 2 weeks left to go! Not only do I have an insane amount of reading to catch up on (e-textbooks are THE WORST), but I also have a 2-part midterm to take, and a huge group project to work on. Needless to say, I think Monday’s going to roll around pretty quickly! I’m already looking forward to my “break time,” which will be celebrating my dad’s birthday and a belated Christmas with my grandparents! And of course, the return of The Walking Dead on Sunday!

So what’s on my radar this week? Lots of pop culture things!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Parts 1 & 2)

Earlier this week, a new Harry Potter book was announced, and myself and the rest of the HP fandom freaked out big time! Unfortunately, it’s not going to be an actual novel like the rest of the series, but instead, is the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, J.K. Rowling’s broadway that opens in London this year. The script/book will be released on our boy Harry’s birthday (July 31), but it’s already available for preorder (which obviously I already signed up for)! Will you be reading it?

After This We’re Getting Pizza Workout Bag

This workout bag ($28) is so unbelievably perfect and sums up what I think a lot of us feel about things that need to happen post-workout. Despite it totally contradicting all the hard exercise you did/are going to do, I love this!

First 4 Minutes of The Walking Dead Mid-Season Premiere

My favorite show is back on Sunday night (Valentine’s Day date with the zombies, anyone?!) and it looks like no time will be wasted jumping back into things. It picks up with Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham’s run-in with Negan’s (the new villain we’ve yet to meet) group, and of course, cuts off just when things start to get pretty intense. Eek! Are you a fan of TWD? Will you be watching?

What do you have planned for the weekend?

    I didn’t realize she was releasing the script! I need to put that on my ‘to-buy’ list. Thanks for the info. :)

    • Yes!! I still hope to get back to London to see the show in person, but the script book will do for now :)

  • SO EXCITED FOR THE NEW HP SCRIPT! I love that it’s debuting on Harry’s birthday! And the second most exciting news is the special edition Hogwarts house books! I can’t wait to have a Ravenclaw set of books!

    • Me too!! When do the new special edition books come out? I’m also getting ready to splurge on wave 2 Funkos. My wallet’s in trouble!

  • I seriously can’t wait for Sunday night! Not only do my husband and I have a date night, but we’re planning on watching TWD too! I can’t wait to see what happens with everybody! Hooray for a new HP book! I need to go on ahead and pre order it right now so I don’t have to wait!

    • The episode was SO intense! I still haven’t been able to get over the craziness of it. What’d you think? And yes! I’m hoping they’ll mail the preorders out a little early!

  • Yes to the HP book! Although, I’ve decided that if I don’t like the way the story goes, it won’t count as real because it’s not an actual novel. Is that weird?

    • Haha, not at all! I’m very curious to see where the story goes. I wish it was an actual book though!

  • I’m so excited for the HP book/script/whatever you want to call it – as long as it’s about Harry Potter, I’m in!! I also LOVE that bag! Totally explains my life. These posts are so fun!!

    • Thanks, Mattie! Me too!!! I wish J.K. Rowling would just keep cranking them out, nothing will ever top the series for me!

  • HAHA. OMG i need that bag, i think i’m going to buy it tomorrow for myself for Valentine’s Day!

    I did read about the new harry potter book/script. exciting! i miss harry potter so much and wish it was still a thing. i may just have to go back and read all the books again!

    • Isn’t it the best?! I miss HP so much too! Rereading the books is on my radar. I’m hoping to start them up again in a few months!

    That bag is too funny! I think I’m one of the only people on the planet that doesn’t watch the Walking Dead. Maybe I’ll have to binge watch it on Netflix soon.

    • You definitely should! A lot of people are scared away from it because they think it’s all zombies, but there’s so much more to it than that!

  • Ahhh, so excited for the latest season of The Walking Dead as well as Game of Thrones! The workout bag is pretty funny and I like the color, too.

    • Are you able to watch TWD and GOT easily over in China? So much good TV starting up again, I’m so excited!

  • I’ve just discovered The Walking Dead and in one week managed to get up to Ep13 of Series 4… I’m thoroughly addicted. I’ve managed to avoid spoilers so far so I want to catch up before I do stumble across any. It was easy before as it wasn’t on my radar and/or didn’t know characters but now I have to be really careful!

    • Yay! So happy to hear that. I can’t believe you’ve been able to avoid spoilers all this time. Kudos! There’s a lot coming out now that it’s back on, so start binging faster :) haha

      • I know so lucky but as you say with the current season just returned I need to be careful! I’m on series 5 now so hopefully by end of the week I’ll have caught up!

  • I’m sure I’ll get the script at some point, but really hope that they broadcast the play like they did for Frankenstein and Richard III in the UK. (The broadcast the recording of the play in movie theaters all over the world for those who couldn’t make it to the West End.)
