It was about a month ago. I was scrolling through my FYP on TikTok one night out of pure boredom, a night I’m sure we all can relate to. The videos ranged from teenagers rating old Cartoon Network shows to adults calling their significant others the wrong name. I was about to log off for the night when I found myself mesmerized by nine influencers lip-syncing to the chorus of “Kings and Queens” by Ava Max.
Sometimes I wish I didn't feel so distant from other people. I can laugh at a joke, sympathize with a problem, and yet it feels like I'm in a totally different space from the person sitting next to me. It gets pretty exhausting trying to figure out the correct reactions to other people's situations.
Last night I was all comfy in bed wandering around on Hulu when I came across a show I had never heard of before; Grand Hotel. I had never heard of it, but it seemed intriguing (except for the title), and I figured I'd give it a try.
Even though I've been racking my brain for weeks, unsure of what to write about, tonight made it clear. WARNING: This is the only spoiler alert you're going to receive for potential spoilers if you haven't watched the fifth episode of the last season—or if you plan on starting the series AFTER the show ends.
Seeing as how I've been nothing but sick the last four days, I took it upon myself to finish The Haunting of Hill House and frankly... it was rather disappointing. Again, spoilers ahead.
Yesterday I was scrolling through Netflix when I finally decided to give The Haunting of Hill House a chance, only after watching the trailer for it a dozen times. Six episodes later, I decided to call it a night. I couldn't tell if I liked it or if I didn't, so instead of posting another review, I guess I'd rather ask questions about it. Spoilers ahead.
