Just wanted to post an update for you guys about what’s going on in my life these days. I haven’t been posting as frequently as I’d like to be, and this post will hopefully explain why.
First of all, this week I’ve been participating in Campus Movie Fest, which is a competition for college filmmakers that requires a five minute film to be made in one week. It’s been a pretty stressful process, and I just finished editing my film today (it’s due tomorrow). I’m pretty proud of it, but as you can imagine I’ve been working non stop for a solid week on this. I’m glad I don’t have to worry about it anymore.
In addition to that, classes just started up again and I’ve been working pretty hard to keep up with reading. Sometimes blogging gets put on hold because of school and I hate that. This is what I love and it really pisses me off when I have to do work and throw this on the side.
I finally caught up on American Horror Story and I got my friend hooked on it as well. The season finale is Wednesday and I am absolutely obsessed! I religiously watched last season and, at first, this season just wasn’t doing it for me. My friends persuaded me to catch up and I have to say that the second half of the season hooked me. It is just as good if not better than last season. The fact that they use a lot of the same actors in both seasons really intrigues me. It’s cool to see the same person play another character. Ryan Murphy (the show’s creator) has been talking about season 3 lately and I’m so anxious to see what they’re gonna do.
A few minutes ago I finished watching the pilot episode of The Carrie Diaries. The new CW show premiered last week and I was pretty much a million percent skeptical about it since it’s the CW I mean come on. However, the pilot is streaming on the CW website here, and I really enjoyed it. AnnaSophia Robb and I go way back to the Bridge to Terabithia days. I’ve always liked her for some reason. I feel like she never ages but that’s irrelevant. If you like old John Hughes movies/Gossip Girl/Sex and the City I think you should give The Carrie Diaries a chance. It manages to be perfectly eighties in the sense that we don’t notice that the show is set in the eighties but the hair and wardrobe is still pretty on point.
On a similar note, I’m almost done reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. I’ve only got about 30 pages left and I have to say I really love it. It’s not nearly as awful as I expected it to be. I saw the trailer for the movie and that made me incredibly skeptical as it pretty much looks like a shitty zombie movie. The book, however is strangely enticing. It’s kind of about a lost soul which is like my favorite book topic. The main character manages to be totally likable and brilliant while being, you guessed it, a zombie. It’s not a dumb paranormal romance novel. It’s really well written and clever. I’ll do a full review when I’m done but I really suggest that you check it out!
Stay tuned for my Warm Bodies review/Oscars Nominee post/February Ear Candy, and hopefully much more!
