Weekly Update 5

Jade discovers the joys of HBO

I come to you after an exhausting day exploring Yellowstone (I’ll post about that later). I’m still recuperating from 9 miles of hiking, a mild sunburn, and too many bug bites. While I’m recovering, I can still talk to you about what I have read/watched/listened to this week.

HBO is my saving grace

Well I finally watched Game of Thrones! Wow, what a great start to the season. From the intense opening scene to the last lines uttered as a promise for the game to finally begin, I was enamored. I was so happy to have the show back that I didn’t care about Ed Sheeran’s random cameo. I don’t really understand all the people who were so upset to see him in Westeros. He’s probably one of the more high-profile musicians to make an appearance on the show, which was a bit jarring I’ll admit, but It’s not something to get up in arms about. Some other standout moments for me were when the writers threw in a jab at man buns and when Euron Greyjoy shaded Jaime Lannister hardcore. That was hilarious.

Another standout HBO show I started this week was Big Little Lies. Now that is a great show! I’m concerned at how much I relate to Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon) considering I’m not a mom and I’m only 19. I love her pettiness and her fierce love for her family. She can be a bit overbearing sometimes, but she is still amazing. What I love about this show is that it portrays these women as multi-faceted and sympathetic, even though they can be real catty with each other. Definitely worth a watch!

Did she read?

No she didn’t. I don’t really have an excuse for why, but that’s the case. I will be starting a new book soon though, so I don’t need your judgement.

Songs of the Week

Tired of Love (acoustic) – The Dig

Breaking the Habit – Linkin Park (RIP Chester Bennington)

I hope you all have a lovely week! This time next week I will be turning 20 so I might not have a post on Sunday, but I’ll make sure to have one up on Monday.

 

Weekly Update 2

Guess who finally watched Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World!

Happy (nearly) 4th of July everyone! July is my favourite month! Summer’s in full swing, it’s finally consistently hot, and it’s my birth month. Let’s be honest, our favourite seasons and months are always the ones that were born in. Really looking forward to this month! Anyways, here is what I read/watched/listened to this week.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World

Don’t kill me for this one, but I watched this film for the first time ever this week. I don’t know why it took me this long to be honest, but whatever. I’ve seen it now and I love it. I mean for one thing the cast is incredible! Brie Larson, Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans, Aubrey Plaza, Michael Cera (and way more) all in one movie! How? Can this happen again? Soon please? I really love the style and message of the film. It was satisfying and thoroughly entertaining! If you haven’t seen it yet (I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who took this long) please do yourself a favour and put it on the top of your watch list.

The Dark Duet (shocker)

Yep that’s right. I haven’t finished it yet because I have a bad habit of being sucked into the internet for hours doing absolutely nothing. I did read a few hundred more pages though. I’m starting to get more into it, but now I have family in town and I’ve been put on babysitting duty which is exhausting and time-consuming. I barely have time to myself right now. I will persevere though and finish it by next week (I swear).

Songs of the Week

Definitely slightly obsessed with Brie Larson singing in Scott Pilgrim.

Young Folks – City of the Sun

Benine Redux – STRFKR

4th of July – The Dig

Have a great (and safe) 4th of July!
