So, you might be thinking, where the heck was I?

Where in the world was Milena?

Well, I was busy watching Sharknado, all 5 parts.

The most ridiculous movie ever. It’s so ridiculous that it’s funny.

It’s about a tornado that picks up everything in its path even the sharks from the ocean. Then the sharks start falling out of the sky and eating people.

The movie is so badly done that is funny.

Btw, I am lying. I didn’t watch all 5 parts, just the first part.

Now, again. I’m lying haha that is not the reason you didn’t hear from me last week.

I wasn’t eaten by a shark.

I know you expected to hear from me last week. After all, this is a weekly show.

I’ve decided to treat myself to a week off.

I took a week off. In other words…

I took a break.

It wasn’t a relaxing break it’s just a break from recording.

I attended a couple of events last week so by the week I was exhausted to record.

And so I decided to take a week off.

Maybe this is a good time to teach you about the word OFF.
