So far, 2017 has been pretty cool.
There was the initial holiday let-down at the beginning of January-- when school started again and we stopped listening to Christmas music 24/7--, but I "recovered" quickly. ;D
Now I feel content with the point of the year that we're at. The end of the school year is tolerably near and, following that, summer. Yay summer. :D Also my Beauty and the Beast Week is approaching, which is exciting.
It's always interesting to look back and think on where I was a year ago(which was Florida, by the way, so that's not always helpful). Or the things I was thinking about and the things I was doing.
So I thought I would share some of this year's-- the moods and things that have been happening in the last few weeks.
Star Wars Obsession
Ever since I saw Rogue One for the second time, I've been in a big SW kick. And the release of Episode VIII's title and the anticipation of a trailer have only fed my enthusiasm. I re-watched A New Hope and The Force Awakens and bought a Rogue One poster and checked out a character encyclopedia from the library.
Also, I'm finally starting to "get" Star Wars limbo and...world. As much as I enjoyed the movies, I used to be shamefully ignorant of the Star Wars world and vocabulary, but because of this kick I'm learning it now. :D
I've decided this is my favorite chapter of the Bible. It's encouraging but challenging and includes so many "famous" Bible verses.
I started listening to Twenty One Pilots. Crazy, because it's totally out of the genre that I usually enjoy. Totally. But despite its occasional darkness and *ahem* weirdness, I like it. Especially the Blurryface album.
~You've Got Mail soundtrack
I've been listening to this for as long as I can remember and it's still good. xD
~You Make Me Feel So Young by Frank Sinatra
I don't know what it is with this song.
~La La Land soundtrack
Alll the songs. City of Stars, Someone in the Crowd, and whenever I need motivation for whatever task is in front of me(be it starting school, cleaning the bathroom, or clearing the table), Another Day of Sun.
I bought a ukulele! It sounds so happy. :D
|my ukulele and the Rogue One poster my siblings think is weird :D|
We've had a LOT of snow this year and one can particularly enjoy it while taking a day-road trip.
I took pictures, but I'm pretty sure they look deceptively good because they're small. In reality, they're pretty blurry. xD The snow was gorgeous though.
As always. ;)
Here are some of the best YouTube videos I watched this month...
What have been some highlights of your year? Do you have any snow? Do you ever experience "kicks" of enjoying a certain movie series?
