There was one movie I’d been looking forward to all year. All year I’ve waited for the next film by Ari Aster. Hereditary blew me away, and I was ecstatic when I heard about Midsommar.
Jobs. We all need them. While the job market is difficult and scary, finally landing that new job can be just as frightening. What do I do? What if I don’t like it? I have to wake up early? The list of fears can stretch for miles. It did for me, and I’ve been out of college doing job applications forever. I finally got a full time office position after months of retail, and oh boy was I terrified. It’s a temp job, so what if they don’t take me on at the end of it? What do I do? What if I don’t get along with my coworkers? I can’t list all my fears here, because then you’d be reading a list the size of the Bible. However, I’ve been there about two weeks, and you know what?
I recently finished Gurren Lagann, and I can honestly say there’s nothing else like it. This is a unique anime for many reasons. Needless to say, some major spoilers are ahead, so if you plan on watching this and want to be surprised, maybe check back in after you’ve watched it all.
Black Mirror is a historically strong show. It’s one of my favorite shows, to be honest. I was excited to see what this newest season would bring. Seeing the casting, I was a little nervous. With the three episodes starring Anthony Mackie, Andrew Scott, and Miley Cyrus in each, I wondered if the star power of these well-known actors would overshadow the writing and big ideas the show is known for.
I was very excited walking into this movie. I’m a huge fan of the X-Men movies, both the good and the bad. I love the heroes and their powers; I love the social commentary the movies invite. Even the worst movies, The Last Stand and Apocalypse, have some nice action scenes, and of course the classic Charles vs. Erik frenemy dynamic. Also, I’ll put my spoiler warning here, there are a few bits in here where I discuss the ending and what not.
Keeping a journal can be a lot of work. I've tried to have a daily journal where I write things to get out all my feelings for the day. When that became too much, I tried to do at least one sentence a day. Still, I couldn't keep up with it.
