Thoughts on The Hours and Mrs. Dalloway

December 3, 2018 | Comments

Warning: Spoilers for The Hours and Mrs. Dalloway. Also, mentions of mental illness, suicide, sexuality, and death The Hours is exactly the type of book that I would fully expect to love. It hits emotional high notes, it touches on topics that I feel strongly about, and is decent enough prose. However, it pales in comparison to the book that it pays tribute to, Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway.

The Ending of Arrival

February 22, 2017 | Comments

I finally got to watch Arrival the other day. It wasn’t exactly everything that I expected but I think I wasn’t displeased with the twist. The fist half of the movie follows Louise, a professor who specializes in languages and translations. She is recruited by the government to help translate the language of aliens who had touched down on earth. Together with a mathematician, Ian, they slowly learn the writing system of the aliens.

I Watched: Rogue One

January 20, 2017 | Comments

Spoilers, beware. I am not a huge Star Wars fan. I watched the first trilogy very quickly, bits and pieces of the second trilogy, and The Force Awakens. Honestly, most of what I know about Star Wars is from the Lego video games and Family Guy. However, my lack of knowledge of the franchise didn’t stop me from going to the theaters and watching the latest installment. When I first watched the Rogue One trailer, I was left wanting for a little more.

You Know What Happens When You Dance

Yesterday was my birthday. Yay birthdays! I’m now the golden age of 17 (this means I have to change all my ages on my websites, ack)! I kinda don’t feel any different (no one ever does, am I right?), not to mention that 17 is a weird number. I guess it’s because it’s odd. But 21 and 23 aren’t that weird of numbers either. I guess 17 is weird because it’s that age that’s in between.

He-Man Woman Haters

Right now, it’s commercial break and I’m watching The Little Rascals. This movie is such a classic. I would always watch it nonstop when I was younger. It’s almost kinda weird watching it now. I feel like a kid all over again! Except now, I can recite all the words to this movie. My favourite lines? _Dear Darla, I hate your stinking guts. You make me vomit. You are scuuuum between my toes.
