On the Big ScreenAs far as TV goes: Agent Carter has been rocking my world, Peggy is my hero, and I need badly for it to be renewed. Nashville has been making me cry MULTIPLE TIMES – I’m so invested in this show, it’s completely ridiculous. Suits was blah until the most recent episode and OH MY GOD THE SHIPPY FEELS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I caught up on Broadchurch in time to catch the finale, and wow. This season started rough for me, but when I marathoned the last episodes, I got swept up in the story again. The cinematography and music just make it so atmospheric and engrossing. I also watched the first two episodes of The Casual Vacancy and I mostly like it! I am really impressed by Krystal, who was my favorite character in the book as well. I think it captures the atmosphere of the story well, though I’ve heard the ending is going to be completely different. We’ll see tonight, I guess!
I went on a bit of a Disney kick in February. I re-watched The Little Mermaid, because I bought an awesome Little Mermaid puzzle and thought it was the perfect thing to put on while I was doing it. I also re-watched Sleeping Beauty because I adored A Wicked Thing so much. Then I watched Maleficent because I totally missed that last year, and it was AMAZING. I also re-watched Alice in Wonderland, the Tim Burton version, because I read the book back in January and meant to do that for a while.
Through My Speakers
In Real Life
- I hung out with my mom a couple of times, and things seem to be going well! We even got tickets to see Soldaat van Oranje, a Dutch musical based on a story about WWII, in May. I’m really excited, because it’s gotten rave reviews.
- BOOK CLUB, obvi. We had Korean food, which was okay… not the best I’ve had, but it was fun nonetheless. Book club is such a judgment-free zone, I really feel like we get each other.
- FALL OUT BOY IS COMING TO HOLLAND AGAIN! October 20th! I already got my ticket to go with Daph, so now I can start counting down the days.
