October Recap

8:12 PM

Books:

I actually got to read a book this month. PRAISE. It felt really good to shirk my responsibilities and read it in like two days straight.

Yes, kids, I'm the best role model ever. (assuming any kids read my blog)




Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. ✪ This book was great. It's set in medieval times and romance was quite a big part of it so it kind of had that "predictable Medieval romance" feel to it (you know what I'm talking about right)...like every Christian medieval-setting romance? But the world, especially the world of the sisters, was built beautifully. And Ismae went through such amazing character growth. It was great watching her learn and mature. I likes it.


Movies/TV Shows:

Movies and TV shows (especially TV shows) have sustained me through my problems and homework which are basically the same thing. I've actually gotten to watch a fair amount of movies when I go home and shows when I'm at college (it leaves me with less guilt). So here they are.



~SNSD and the Dangerous Boys~
I just found this on one of my random wanderings through YouTube. I never would've found it otherwise because I don't watch SNSD (Girls' Generation) things but this is, I feel like, a gem. The SNSD girls mentor a group of "troubled" boys and the relationships that grow are so cute and it's awesome seeing the boys change even though I feel like Korean standards are sometimes too high. Or maybe SNSD's standards. I dunno.


~Sassy Go Go~
Literally almost everybody captured my heart. They are my babies. I want to hug them all and give them chocolate. Friggin three main characters. Also this is my favorite poster of all time. Besides the fact that I just love the characters (oh sorry, did I already say that?), DO YOU SEE THE GIRL IN RED. She's dressed in actual non-girly, non-tracksuit clothes! This makes me so happy. And a hat. Hats are life.


I also watched all these movies which were great:

 The Avengers 2 (nothing needs to be said here. it was awesome)
Home (the legit cutest animation ever)
Mad Max: Fury Road (this was really weird but also epic at the same time. i've never watched a movie like this which is a great compliment in my opinion)
Fast & Furious 7 (i cried. like this was so sad at the end. but it was also fab action scenes)

Songs:



Yeah... I've been in a Monsta X phase. You should check them out. They're not from any of the super big companies so they could use the support and they're SO talented. 


This song. I love it.


Happenings:

>>> I've been volunteering at an animal shelter for part of my honors program and I love it. I work with the cats so sometimes I just pet them and love them and sometimes I clean out their cages and refill food & water and stuffs. It's the best. And it's reminded me how much I love helping animals/people.

>>> Basically projects and school all the time.

>>> I got to eat Thai recently though! That's always a plus. :))

>>> My life is so boring I'm sorry.

  1. dude. I've literally walked past that book so many times at my library but never picked it up. I'll have to check it out now. :D

    *has all the Sassy Go Go feels*

    I am so in love with Monsta X right now. I.M. is my bias...I don't even know how I got serious enough about them to have a bias. But Hero is life. Their dance practices are killing me. Also, it's really fun to look at Sistar's music videos and pick them out as the background actors/dancers. XD

    and Home was the cutest movie on the planet oh my gosh.

    1. yeah I don't know how long I've been putting off reading it even though a lot of people recommended it to me :D It's a super interesting concept.

      *also has all the Sassy Go Go feels*

      I.M. is my sister's bias! Monsta X is the best, but weirdly I'm taking a while finding my bias. I usually decide before my sis. But noooo, my weird self has to pick THREE possibles. >.< Hero is my favorite song ever. Although tbh a lot of their songs are pretty epic. I DID THIS TOO. When I was stalking them, as I do when I find a new bae group, I looked up all the videos XD

      Literally. Yes. It's made of rainbows and candy. And dreams.

  2. HA. I told you you would love Monsta X. I knew all that shoving-of-them into your face would pay off. (Please tell me you've picked a bias. you've never taken this long before and it's worrying).

    I think the main issue why you can't pick a dude to side with in the love triangle (or square, or possibly pentagon) in Sassy Go Go is because Ha Joon is so similar to his broken self in Angry Mom. Like. GAH. Whenever I see him I just want to cry and give him all the food. *All You Need is Love plays in the distance*

    My life is more boring than yours. I haven't gone outside of the house in a week.

    1. I NEVER SAID I WOULDN'T LIKE THEM. I just wasn't crazy about their first song okayz? (I still have not picked a bias. I'm sorry. If it makes you feel better I might have narrowed it down to two. but then again maybe not)

      That is actually true. Since Bok Dong didn't get the girl.... I really want Ha Joon too. Who knows what shapes love makes in this series. But it BETTER have more than two more darn episodes.

      I wish I hadn't gone outside in a week.

  3. Aw your life isn't boring. Kitties and Age of Ultron and Thai food are awesome! What's your favorite Thai dish?

    1. Yeahh, you're right, I like all those things :D Sometimes though I feel like it's boring to you all to read the same things again. Like omg really you went out to eat and played with cats like the last time you wrote a post. XD Hmm... my favorite at the restaurant in my town is the drunken noodles. They're scrumptious. Every time I eat them I savor them as loooong as possible.

  4. Thai is life. <3 I've had Grave Mercy on my TBR for years now because the synopsis never seemed unique enough to convince me it was worth reading above other books. It sounds like it was about how I imagined. I may read it yet, but I doubt it will be anytime soon.

    1. I'm so sorry for not replying sooner! I thought I'd answered you already >.< Thai is the best of all things. :D I did like Grave Mercy, but I don't think it was something I'd try to force everyone to read hehe.
