Hello, hello!! I hope y’all are having a great day, I sure am. It’s cold, it’s rainy, it’s cloudy, and I’m about to sit on a bus for four hours, but I’m alive and the world hasn’t ended so I guess it’s a good day. At the very least, it’s the day God made for us so there ain’t no point in complaining.
So, now that my little moment is over, let’s get this done!
I was actually tagged by two people to do this tag and since I don’t want to do this for six days in a row, I’ll just do them together and tag 6 people instead of 3.
The people who tagged me were Rendz @ Reading with Rendz and Angelica @Dreaming of Fiction. Thank you so much for tagging me!!!!! I’d been seeing this going around for a while and thought it was pretty cool so now I’m super excited to get to this. Also, if you guys haven’t checked out either of these two wonderful people’s blogs, I highly recommend you do!!!
Now, without further ado, let’s get to it!
“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
As you can tell by the title of this sort of review, this is well…sort of a review. But not really. Here go I guess.
So, Valentines Day happened. I meant to post this on Wednesday because I am bitter and single and just because I like to be contrary. But, I didn’t finish the post in time so here we are two days later as if nothing happened.
All Wednesday I saw posts on love and romance and all those cutesy things. Everyone was talking about their favorite books and romance novels and all that jazz. And I decided, no! I am going to rebel! Go against the status quo! Never conform! Stand up to the patriarchy and whatnot!
And that’s how it all went down and how it is that we find ourselves here today.
So, while there a lot of romance novels that I’ve loved, and a lot of book couples in all types of books that I have come to greatly enjoy, there are also a lot of romances that I absolutely hate. Much more than one would think, or perhaps not. I think I’m pretty open about the things I hate.
So, on this holiday of love *let’s ignore the fact that it was on Wednesday* let us talk about romances that maybe aren’t that lovable
despite the fact that everyone seems to love them.
*If you love any of these books or couples then I am happy for you and respect your opinion. So, let us all be adults about this and respect what everyone has to say!*
Hello, hello! Here we are again with the second movie review on my blog! I figured the first one went over well so why not keep reviewing?
So, let’s get to it!
I watched this movie with my mother a few days ago. It was beautifully dreary day and we decided, who needs a clean house when we can sit around and watch movies! So, after ignoring all of our chores and responsibilities, we watched movies, and this was one of them.
The score below is the one I gave it right after having watched this, but looking back, I honestly don’t know how I feel about it. But, oh well. To the review!
So, I went to the theater yesterday. The Shakespeare Theatre in D.C. to be exact. I went to see their rendition of Hamlet and it was everything I ever hoped it would be and then some.
Hamlet is my favorite Shakespearean play and I’ve wanted to see it live since my senior year in high school when I first read it. I’ve seen the Kenneth Branagh movie (the one that is 4 hours and 20 minutes long!) and loved it. And if sitting through a 4 a four hour and 20 minute movie isn’t a sign of love and dedication, I don’t know what is.
All that was left was for me to see it in the way it was intended, with a live cast and large stage. So, you can imagine that I was excited to finally be able to cross this off my bucket list.
