Monthly Look Ahead: June 2019

Juuuuune. Here we are. It came so fast and I have a feeling it’ll go by really fast. Next thing you know it’ll be July. And then what? August? Ridiculous.

Anyway, Junes are usually decent months for me, and that’s not just because they are my birth month. So let’s dive into what I’ve got coming up. And then tell me (in the comments or in your own post) what you’re looking forward to in your June.

  • The Tony’s are on the 9th. They’re always a fun show to watch because a) performances and b) they seem less political and more fun and joyful. Just a bunch of theater nerds geeking out, ya know? But what do I know; I watch from my couch. Anyway, every year I try and watch to find bootlegs for the big shows nominated so I can have some basis of knowledge for the evening. I’ve yet to watch a few, so I gotta get on that.
  • As I said, my birthday is coming up on the 16th. That’s Father’s Day this year, which is neat because I was born actually on Father’s Day, and the days only align every eight years or so. I’m glad my birthday is not on a weekday so I don’t have to spend it alone at work and I can instead spend it alone at home.
  • For my birthday, I asked for tickets to Dear Evan Hansen because really I want to see it and it’s playing near me for a few more weeks only. We’re actually going before my birthday, but that just means I get to see it sooner. I am very excited. I adore the soundtrack and can’t wait to see it live.
    Dear evan hansen.
  • Season 3 of Jessica Jones is out on the 14th. This is the last of Marvel’s Netflix shows, which is kind of sad. I hope it ends on a great note, but I’m not too optimistic given that I thought JJ‘s second season was kind of bad. Of course, Daredevil had a sucky second season too yet surprised me with a fantastic third, so I never know.
  • Toy Story is back with a 4th installment (a fourquel?) and though Toy Story is not my favourite Pixar series, they were all good movies. I’m a little wary for this new one on the 21st, but based on the trailers, it doesn’t look bad. I won’t be lining up to see it right away, but I do want to see it eventually.
  • Last year a Superman prequel show called Krypton aired, and it wasn’t that great, but I watched it and now its second season is starting on the 12th. I’ll probably watch that too because a) it’s the summer so I don’t have much else to watch and b) I found myself thinking about the show a weird amount. So, yeah, bring it on.
  • The radio station I listen to at work is hosting an 80’s dance party this month, which sounds like a whack of fun. I bought two tickets, but haven’t yet confirmed who’ll be using the second ticket.
  • Another movie that looks alright is Yesterday. It’s about a guy who gets injured and wakes up in a world where the Beatles didn’t exist, so he capitalizes on that for his own music career. I’m not a huge Beatles fan by any means, but I think this is a clever movie idea, so I definitely want to see this.

Anyway, that’s my June. See, seems like it could be fun overall, right? Junes be like that. (Do y’all remember those books called Junie B Jones? Man, I was obsessed with those when I was a kid).

That’s all for now!

  1. V, I love your June! Sounds fun filled!
    I am looking forward to more cottage time, and maybe start some packing.
    Hope you have an amazing Birthday and I know you will have a Delish Cake for sure! 😘

    • Thank you so much!
      Going to a cottage sounds like fun! I hope you have good weather!
      I would love to get out of town for more than an afternoon and enjoy the new nice weather! I’m tired of putting on three layers at work every day!

  2. June- June tends to have an outdoor symphony: more specifically The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. We picnic there, and listen to the music. There is a Broadway theme this year.

  3. […] Late getting something here again, lacking focus and concentration lately. May turned out to be a hopelessly haphazard struggle against some odds. Less said the better for now, it’d most likely seem crazy paranoia if I even began to try to elucidate & essentially personal impacts were of an external variety with other folks confidentiality to guard in the mix, so, onward for June… joining in with […]

  4. Great post!

    I know I’m a little late on this, but totally loved the Tony Awards this year! This was just a great season for Broadway! I liked last season and there were definitely some great shows that premiered, but it just wasn’t that exciting of a season. This season definitely made up for that with so many great new shows! Did you have any favorite shows this season?

    That’s so awesome that you got to see Dear Evan Hansen! I saw it before it started its Broadway run when it played Off- Broadway at Second Stage. So happy I got to see it there, because I had no idea it would be such a hard ticket to get when the Broadway run started. Waving Through A Window is probably one of the best musical theater songs ever written.

    I still have to watch Jessica Jones Season 2. I gotta get on watching that at some point. There’s just always a new show on Netflix to watch that I sometimes get distracted by all the new shows instead of watching the new season of a series I have already started, LoL.

    • Hadestown got a lot of hype so I knew it would win the night. The music is really good, so I’d love to one day see that in peron. Also Beetlejuice looked very well-made, so it’d be cool to see that.

      Jessica Jones season 2 was disappointing to me, but JJ3 was pretty good. Power through, and ideally do it soon before fall TV starts back up again!
