Monthly Look Ahead: December 2017

Can you believe it’s the last month of the year? Can you believe Christmas is almost here? I can’t, but I’m also not in the right mind frame for that. But here we are, and December is always a great month, so let’s get into it! Here’s what I’m excited about! Here’s my Monthly Look Ahead for December!

  • I can’t wait until the end of the semester! I have just another week and a half left but I have so much work to do before I can head home. I have final assignments for every class, and some of those assignments have several parts to them, so needless to say, being done with those will be 10/10.
  • Christmas!
  • But before that, Christmas movies! As soon as I’m home, I’ll have nothing to do except watch cheesy Christmas movies (and edit my novel). The cheesier the better!
  • Agents Of SHIELD‘s fifth season starts on December 1st. I am so so SO excited. It’s my favourite show and we’ve waited ages for it to return, so I am very ready for the emotional torture that this show is so good at for the fun.

  • Pitch Perfect 3 comes out on the 22nd. I adored the first movie and enjoyed the second, so I’m praying this one holds up well too. At the very least, I know there’ll be decent music!
  • Another movie I’m kind of interested in is The Greatest Showman, out on the 29th. It’s a movie musical and I honestly don’t know too much more about it, but the trailer looked cool, and the song in it is catchy. I’m always weak for musicals, so it’d be on my radar anyway!
  • The comedy Superstore is giving us a bonus Christmas episode on December 5th. The mid-season finale was several weeks ago so they didn’t have to give us a Christmas episode, but they’re doing it for us, and I’m excited because I’m laughing at every episode. I think it’s the only one of my shows doing a Christmas episode this year, so I’m even more appreciative for that reason.
  • Love of my life Darren Criss is releasing a new EP on December 15th so I can’t wait to listen to that.
  • I’m planning a few Christmas themed blog posts that I’m excited about. I haven’t written them yet, though.

And that’s what my December looks like! What’s going on with you guys this month? Got fun holiday plans? Let me know!

Monthly Look Ahead: November 2017

Happy Halloween and Happy November’s Monthly Look Ahead Day.

While November in the past has been a really hectic month for me, this one, at least so far, doesn’t seem to be too crazy…yet. And there are some cool things happening, so I am actually kind of looking forward to this month. I hope I don’t come to regret that statement. The eleventh month is upon us, and here’s what I’ve got going on.

  • Thor: Ragnarok is out in theaters on the 4th. While the past two Thor movies failed to impress me that much, this one is apparently really funny and has some cool characters, so I will definitely be making my way to see that ASAP.
  • Likewise, I’m pretty excited for Justice League on the 17th. This movie could make or break the DCCU and I’m hoping it does well. I’m so excited to see Diana again.
  • Also on the 17th comes The Punisher to Netflix. I liked Frank Castle in season 2 of Daredevil, but based on the trailers, this show looks to just be a dark, military drama, and I can’t say I’m super psyched for that. I’ll still watch it, but I’m not expecting to love it.
  • My Quidditch team is not only having a Games Day, but also a double-header movie night, both of which I’m excited for. I’m glad we’re doing double-header movie nights because I’m hoping we can get through them all and still have time to perhaps watch A Very Potter Musical before April exams start. We’ve all seen the movies a hundred times but there are people who still haven’t experienced AVPM, and I refuse to graduate under these circumstances.
  • The Arrowverse crossover! Happening on November 27th and 28th, this four-way crossover is sure to be wild. I love seeing the characters from the different shows interact. I am a little sad that I’m scheduled to have a late class on the 28th, meaning I won’t be able to watch The Flash‘s episode live, though…unless, of course, the college strike shifts that around…

  • Christmas music! Yes, it’s beginning this month, and I will be listening as soon as it does. I think my local radio station starts it on the 19th. I’ve got my portable radio ready to go!
  • On November 1st I’m planning to meet a friend downtown. I haven’t seen her since April so it’ll be fun to hang with her again. I hope it’s not too cold that day.

Here’s hoping that the above things will be enough to get my mind, body, and soul through the month. I can’t believe the year is already over. Who allowed that to happen? And as I always want to know, what do you have going on this November? Let me know!

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: October 2017

Time for pumpkin spiced everything and overpriced candy in stores because it’s October! September was pretty warm and while the forecast was calling for a mild October, that’s still cold for me. And then, of course, there’s Halloween. As I’ve stated before in blog posts, I don’t really care for Halloween aside from pumpkin seeds. And I’ve got a project due that day. But there are a few things happening this month that have got me ready to embrace it with moderately open arms, and here’s what they are.

  • Fall reading week 2017! I was about ready for a break a week into this school semester and I guarantee I’ll be even more ready in a few weeks. Thanksgiving and reading week will be much appreciated.
  • More TV shows! Half my shows came back last month, but the other half start this month. Returning to my small screen in October are Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends Of Tomorrow, Riverdale, Blindspot, and The Middle.
  • Apparently, PBS is airing full musicals on TV on Fridays, which is really cool! She Loves Me and Falsettos are just two of the handful of shows that will air, according to this. My little TV does manage to pick up PBS so hopefully I can watch them that way, or stream them online if I can’t. Either way, free pro-shot musicals. Yay. (Even though I didn’t love Falsettos…)
  • I am hoping some of my novel’s beta readers finish their read this month and give me some feedback. As busy as I am and as much as I complained about editing, I do kind of miss working on my story. I spent so much of my summer on it, I’m kind of itching to go back. If any of you beta readers are reading this, no pressure, take your time, of course, but just know that I am very eager to hear your thoughts!

This is cute. Happy Fall!

Well, that’s about it. Kind of a quiet month. Fun times, right? What’s your spooky month consist of? Make an MLA post and let me and your followers know!

Monthly Look Ahead: September 2017

Who allowed it to be September, because I sure didn’t? I am appalled that I am a few days away from being back at school. Where has my summer gone? I went swimming once. ONCE, you guys. But I guess if I have to accept this new month into my life, I should embrace all the goodness that comes with it. Here’s what’s looking good this September.

monthly look ahead logo

  • A fresh new schedule. Going back to school for the last time meaning I’m back in classes, back on my own, back to business. I do enjoy the first few weeks of school.
  • Back to Quidditch. I was very inactive this past summer, so I am looking forward to hitting the pitch again and getting even a little exercise, and especially now when it’s still kind of warm outside.
  • I’m getting Invisaligne braces put in. I don’t know how exciting this is, as it’s a lot more work on my part, but I’m hoping that it’ll fix up my teeth’s crowding and minimize the damage I apparently do to myself in my sleep. Have any of you had them?
  • This isn’t confirmed yet, but I am planning on volunteering at my local Wordcamp again. Last year I had a good time, so I figured, why not do it again?
  • The sequel to Kingsman called Kingsman: The Golden Circle is out on the 22nd. The first movie was great, so I think I’ll make a trip out to the movies to see this new one.

  • Marvel’s newest cinematic endeavour, The Inhumans, is out this month. It’s a TV show, but the first two episodes are being shown in IMAX theaters before the rest of the show airs on TV on the 29th. I gotta say, this is the least excited I’ve been for a Marvel project in a while, so I may not be first in line to see this in theaters, but I will give the TV show a chance at the very least.
  • As for other brand new TV shows, there’s nothing too exciting coming this fall. I’m considering watching The Mayor and Ghosted but I am not overcome with anticipation, so we’ll see.
  • I’m more excited for returning TV shows. Returning to me in September are: The Good Place, Superstore, Modern Family, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, This Is Us, and Mr. D.
  • Shania Twain’s new album is out at the end of the month. I loved the first single and I’m just so happy she’s back making music.

So that’s how my September is looking. I’m guessing a lot of you are going back to school too. Are you excited? Or are you more excited for fall TV, like I am? Make your own MLA post and share the goodness! I’d love to read and I’d love to see more people spreading the positivity by participating in this blogging feature.

Monthly Look Ahead: August 2017

The last month of summer is upon us. Summer has flown by, and it’s weird to think that this may be my last ‘summer’ as after this upcoming school year, I’m graduating and hopefully finding full time work. But let’s not stress out about that now. Let’s instead look at the fun things I’ve got going on in August. There’s not a lot, but there never is.

  • Of course my number one is The Defenders, hitting Netflix on the 18th. I’m done work by then so I have nothing stopping me from waking up at 3am to watch it. I can’t wait to see the four heroes team up and fight together because I’m sure their dynamic is going to be hilarious. I’m also very excited to see all the secondary characters. I’ve missed Trish and Foggy and Claire. I hope we see a lot of them.

  • The band Neon Trees announced last week that they are back and that in early August (like, in the next few days) we’ll be getting a taste of their new music. I loved their last album, Pop Psychology, so I’m hoping their new music is just as good.
  • I finish my work term in the middle of the month. Though I wouldn’t complain if I worked for a bit longer (mo’ money), I guess it would be good to relax for a few weeks before school starts up. Maybe finish my novel editing before I get others to read it.

So that’s it. Not an exciting month at all. I was supposed to also be going to New York state for a weekend away, but I don’t think that’s happening for me, so…I’ll just be at home, taking in the last of summer in front of the TV, like usual. I know I got a great job over the summer that I am grateful for, but I do wish I had done something fun this summer, gone somewhere exciting, even for a few days. Summer 2017 did not impress. But I’ll stop being bitter now. I have a whole month with essentially no plans, so who knows what may happen! There, that’s positive!

Hopefully you’ve got exciting plans for August? Let me know in your own MLA post!

That’s all for now!

P.S. I’m still looking for a fall internship, so please pray for me, y’all. I need them good vibes.
