im sorry if ive ever told you the same story twice its just that i dont have an interesting life and cool things rarely happen to me
well i didn’t really leave to begin with, but i did go back to school therefore i’ve been super busy being a sophomore and trying to figure out what the hell i want to do with my life. but here i am once again. hello.
so the main point of this post is not to tell you that i am back in fact it’s not really about me at all, it’s about a television show. called scandal. that i have been watching obsessively for the past week.
i finished season 1 a while ago and i kept trying to find the time to watch all of season 2 (which has 22 freakin episodes while the 1st season only had like 8). well, i finally finished. i was up until 3am last night. i couldn’t stop. this show is SO good. for those of you who are into passionate forbidden love, politics, crime, and MURDER then you need to watch this show. like asap. it’s basically romeo and juliet meets law and order.
notes *spoiler alert* **seriously if you haven’t watched don’t read this**:
1) as much as i know i’m supposed to kind of root for fitz and olivia, i’m kind of 100% done with fitz’s bullshit. i feel like he does love olivia, but treats her like absolute shit. he always “demands” that she do something and throws a hissy fit whenever he doesnt get his way. basically i like him when he’s not being an asshole.
2) mellie you need to leave his ass. he has treated you like dog shit stuck on the bottom of his shoe and you don’t deserve it. giiiiirl you deserve better. don’t give in to him running right back to you after olivia leaves. he’s just lonely and horny.
3) yeah mellie can be pretty freakin annoying too but i don’t think she deserves what fitz does to her.
4) tbh i really want huck to find his family and live happily ever after. that flashback episode literally killed me. i was a mess.
5) why does billy resort to murder when things don’t go his way
7) finally, olivia’s dad. can i get a TWIST ya’ll? i really have nothing more to say about that except, :O.
This is my all time favorite quote about my all time favorite movie from one of my favorite actors. It is so incredibly true and he really explains the point of the movie so well.
last year when i was packing for college i was allll ready like 2 weeks before. this year, i’m barely gettin’ it together and i move in on saturday
i don’t know…he believed that girl he got pregnant in high school was Maggie, and plus he wasn’t in high school when Ali was alive, he was in college. You’re right it’s a little weird he was wearing all black and in Ravenswood following the girls, but i don’t think he was ever really that shady…he was pretty normal to me. (well besides the fact that he is in his 20s and was dating a 17 year old)
but yeah i get the reasons why he could be, but i just think they’re pretty weak and not supported enough by the storyline!
PLL Season Finale **spoiler alert**
I’m gonna be pretty honest here: the pretty little liars finale was not very good. Unfortunately. They usually do so much better. Although i still like the show, I feel like the writers aren’t taking advantage of the TRULY shady characters (AKA WREN AKA SHAWNA). they’re trying so damn hard to throw twists at us that they’re missing the best reveals. so, and this goes without saying, for me the reveal of Ezra as A was pretty weak. I understood Mona being A and i even got Toby being A, but Ezra? Really?? He literally is a poor soul who has his own grown up problems, what does he have to gain by tormenting teens?
I know they tried to set it up like he was stalking Ali and using the girls to try to find her, but that makes ABSOLUTELY no sense with all the shit A has done to them. like what was the point of killing off the NAT club and all that other stuff with Hanna’s mom?
Also where does Cece come in and how did she get away so quietly wearing those loud ass heels. and could she even walk that fall was def a back-breaker
i guess there are only 2 ways they could save this plot line for me:
1) Ezra is in fact NOT A and he was just super mad that the girls are still fucking with A and going into A’s lair and shit.
2) The real A is the one that Cece is working for and who may or may not be Ezra. (also Wren, Mona, maybe Melissa and maybe Jenna and Shawna are working for this A). And then there’s Allison who is trying to help them get A. I don’t know. I just don’t know. I’m confused.
In short, that finale was hella confusing and the writers should probably step up their game, just sayin.
I finished Looking for Alaska by John Green about a week or so ago and it was positively beautiful. The writing, the story line, just everything.
I kinda wish that I read this book last summer because it really hits on a lot of the things i was going through at that time such as depression, blame, and suffering. although the book definitely would not have made me feel less depressed, i think it would have helped me to understand myself a little better.
notes *spoiler alert*:
1) i had a love/hate relationship with pudge. he got on my nerves with how he placed alaska on this pedestal in his mind and refused to accept that she would never love him as much as he loved her. but i love his narration, the way he describes things and breaks them down in his mind. i feel as if he really grew by the end of the book and came to realize that there is a way out of suffering one way or another.
2) this book talked a ton about “the labyrinth” and while i still feel as if i don’t fully understand what exactly that labyrinth is, i think they really described it beautifully as not life or death, but universal suffering. and you can choose to waste your whole life trying to escape the labyrinth, or you can take things as they come; live through the hard times, don’t dwell, and learn from the hard things that life throws at you.
3) finally, i guess i have to address alaska. i guess she annoyed me at times with how she seemed to use others to her own benefit and how she always found a way to make others feel inferior to her. but ultimately, she was an truly amazing character. she was one who lived her life constantly trying to escape her labyrinth of suffering, and when she couldn’t, she gave up. and i think that is what some people, especially teenagers, feel like most of the time. and i think she is a character that a lot of us can identify with, at least some of the time (meaning without the suicide(?) part). there were times when i really didn’t think i would ever escape the negative and pessimistic mentality i gained from what happened to me, and there are times i still don’t, but if this book taught me anything it’s that if you believe that you will never escape, you won’t. the key is your own mentality.
Ahhh it’s amazing!! Definitely a favorite.
Basically John Nash is a freakin boss.
