On the Big ScreenObviously, Mockingjay, Part 1. I watched The Hunger Games and Catching Fire again the night before and I was an emotional MESS. Mockingjay was way better than I expected. I super appreciate all the details they added, so I don’t really mind the split into two movies anymore. I mean, it still wasn’t super necessary, but they are doing it well. I got really emotional about Gale asdfjkl; and also Philip Seymour Hoffman, because god, he killed it as Plutarch. Anyway, it was really really good.
TV has been more of the same, but The Newsroom is finally back and asdfjkl; IT’S SO GOOD OMG. If I still haven’t convinced you to watch this series just asdfjkl; doooooooo itttttttt. It’s immaculate. And Don and Sloan are the best ever I just cannot even with my feels.
I’m still slowly binging Eureka, just like in last month’s wrap up. I’m on the last season now, and I’m liking it more than ever. Though I’m very scared about the prospects of MY SHIP.
Through My SpeakersI’ve mostly been listening to Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989, this month – which unfortunately means I can’t share any of the songs because she keeps pulling them all from YouTube *rolls eyes* But aside from the awesome Shake It Off and Blank Space, I’ve really been loving Bad Blood (for relatable reasons asdfjkl;), Wonderland, and Style. So. Yeah. That.
In Real Life
- Reeeeeally not a good month. Work drama, direct family drama, extended family drama, other extended family drama… let’s just say there’s a reason why I primarily read contemporary romances this month. -.- My mood has been tragic, and I’m sorry if that’s been bleeding through on social media.
- BUT I did get to buy a ticket to go back to Texas for Christmas, to spend it with my dad, so that’s something.
- And book club was really nice. I love those girls. ♥
