Recent Happenings

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 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

Philippians 4

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...

Josh Taylor from Blimey Cow has his own Youtube account called Movie Trailer Trash for reviewing and discussing movies and movie trailers and it's really good.


What have been some highlights of your year? Do you have any snow? Do you ever experience "kicks" of enjoying a certain movie series? 


Comments are my favorite, seriously. :D But please do remember to remain respectful and all that.
