Monthly Look Ahead: July 2018

We’re officially more than halfway through the year, and that’s wild. Now it’s July, and I don’t have a lot lined up, but that’s alright. Here’s what’s getting me out of bed:

  • As I do every Canada Day, I’m going with my best friend and her family to a BBQ where we can hang and socialize and watch fireworks.
  • Ant-Man And The Wasp comes out on the 6th. The first Ant-Man movie wasn’t my favourite of all the MCU films, but I didn’t hate it. Not to mention that this new movie is getting some good early reviews. After Infinity War, it’s clear that I’ll watch everything Marvel throws at me, so I’m ready for some Ant-Man.
  • But the movie I’m most excited for is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again on the 20th because Mamma Mia is my favourite musical, and I enjoyed the movie (even if it was a little cheesy) so I’m excited to see what happens next. We haven’t set a date or anything, but I suggested going to see it with my mom, my best friend, and her mom.

  • Later this month is SDCC, an event that I’m once again very far away from, but am still excited to experience over Twitter. Give me ALL the TV show news!
  • I might be going with my parents and some family friends for a little annual weekend getaway. My presence is not confirmed yet, but if I’m able to go, I will, and I will enjoy it.
  • Getting a job??????

And there ya have it, folks. July is set to be decent, and that is all I can ask for. What do you have going on this month? Let me know!

Monthly Look Ahead: June 2018

June is here! And it’s shaping up to be a busy month (though 80% of this MLA is all happening in one week…). Anyway, June has always been a good month for me, and I hope it is for you too. Make your own MLA and get hyped for it with me! Here’s what I have going on:

  • Marvel’s newest TV show Cloak And Dagger starts on Freeform on the 8th. I don’t know much about the show or the characters, but Marvel TV has never truly disappointed me, so I have faith. Plus it’s the summer so it’s not like I many other TV choices anyway.
  • Oceans 8 comes out on the 8th. I’ve seen the other Oceans movie and though they aren’t my favourite, I am kind of looking forward to this one because the cast looks amazing.
  • June 10th is the Tony Awards, which I always like watching because I like the performances. Unfortunately this year I won’t be able to watch it live because…
  • I’m going to see Darren Criss and Lea Michele on tour! They’ve got one Canadian stop, so as a treat-yo-self/grad present to myself, I bought a ticket. I was a huge Glee fan and they’re both so talented, so I’m very excited. Should be a good show!
  • My bookmaking class will be holding a book launch at a nice hotel downtown. My novel, The Time Company, is already available, but this is just a little celebration for us all where our family and other profs and people in the community can come and check out our books. It’ll be fun, even if I’ll have to dress up and read a part of my book out loud in front of strangers.
  • I’m graduating! Honestly, I’m not really looking forward to the ceremony, as I’m sure it’ll be long and boring, but it’ll be nice to finally be done school and have a diploma to prove it.
  • Incredibles 2 comes out on the 15th, and I am very excited. I remember going to see the first Incredibles movie in theaters and loving it. It’s one of my favourite animated movies (tied with Monsters Inc) so I’m very ready for this followup.

  • I’ll be turning 22 on the 16th!
  • Season 2 of Luke Cage drops on the 22nd, and I’m excited to see Misty and Claire again…and Luke, I guess. He’s cool.
  • Season two of the Queer Eye reboot is coming out on the 15th. Considering that season one only just came out in February, this is a nice surprise. I’m not in love with this show or desperate for more, but it’s cute and easy to watch.

So that’s my June. Hopefully my June will also involve finding a job. Cross your fingers for me, okay? Anyway, what are you looking forward to this month?

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: May 2018

It’s May, and it’s the start of the rest of my life, now that I’m out of school and looking for work. And while that sounds exciting (it really isn’t), there’s not a lot this month that’s noteworthy, so this MLA is going to be a weaker one. Though that doesn’t mean your May isn’t going to be cool! Take this below image and write your own MLA post!

  • Deadpool 2 is out on the 18th. The first Deadpool movie was hilarious and perfectly brought the merc with a mouth to the big screen. I have faith in Ryan Reynolds and this new movie to be just as funny and action-packed.
  • My family is going to NYC for a few days. I’m super excited because I love New York. And I love musicals (if you didn’t know!) so there’s a Broadway show in my future!
  • The TV network Upfronts are this month, meaning I’ll know the fate of all my shows and get to watch all the trailers for upcoming shows, which is always fun.
  • And speaking of TV shows, May is largely finale month, so while I’m sad to see shows end, I’m expecting some grand finales, especially if some shows *cough*AgentsOfSHIELD*cough* may be series finales. I want to celebrate the legacy, ya know?

Aaaaaand that’s about it. Like I said, not super busy. But maybe that’s good considering that I already know June will be busier.

So let’s end this May MLA as per tradition with my favourite May, Melinda.

Monthly Look Ahead: April 2018

Welcome to the fourth month of the year. I can’t believe we’re here already. And I can’t believe I survived March. It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. I was big time stressed for about three days and then everything slowed down slightly, and I got a handle on it all. So now I am ready to move into April and take on all that’s coming. Especially these following fun parts:

  • NBC’s newest live musical, Jesus Christ Superstar Live! is airing on the 1st (since it’s Easter and all). John Legend and Sara Bareilles are starring in it. Admittedly, I’ve never seen this musical, but that just makes me more excited. I am ready to be wowed, and NBC’s musicals are usually solid.
  • Finishing school! Can you believe I’ll be done? Four years of essays and group projects and lectures, all coming to an end. I have only one exam and as soon as I’m done that, I’ll be done it all. Forever.
  • Avengers Infinity War! This highly anticipated movie got pushed up a few weeks to April 27th, and I am so excited. So many awesome characters are coming together in this, so it’s sure to be stellar. This is the movie that the MCU has been building up to for a while now.

  • The Quidditch team is celebrating the end of the school year with a laser tag session, and I am beyond ready. I love laser tag, and I think the team will be a great bunch of people to play it with. Plus, a girl on the team works there, so we get a discount. Cheap fun is often the best fun. This will be the last chance to hang with my Quidditch pals, so I’ll cherish it.
  • After years of work, I’m finally able to sell my first novel! I already got a proof copy, made some last fixes, and ordered a first batch, so this month I will definitely be able to sell it to friends and family and any interested readers. Keep an eye out for a big reveal blog post very soon with all the info!

And that’s my April! What’s going on for you this month? I’d love to know!

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: March 2018

It’s March, and as I’ve mentioned a few times on this blog, my March will be a busy one, full of assignments and projects and papers. Since I can’t avoid any of it, the least I can do is be super hyped about the fun things that’ll be going on this month. And they are as follows:

  • Jessica Jones season 2 is coming out on the 8th. Season 1 was pretty good, so I’m excited. Does anyone know why it’s coming out on a Thursday, though? Isn’t that weird for Netflix?
  • A friend is having a party and we’re going to an escape room, which I’ve never done before.
  • The Oscars! I’ve seen almost all the movies from the bunch I want to see, and I don’t mind award shows.
  • And since we’re here, I might as well mention the other award show this month (on the 25th): The Junos, which is Canada’s music night, and for the most part, I appreciate the pure, authentic Canadian-ness of it.
  • Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s 100th episode is airing on the 9th and from what I’m hearing, it’ll be a big one. Fingers crossed for a Fitzsimmons wedding.
  • The Quidditch team is having our last movie night and we’ll be watching A Very Potter Musical and I can’t wait to have some teammates experience this masterpiece for the first time. I also haven’t seen it in a while so I’m excited to watch it again myself.

  • No one wanted an American Idol reboot, but we’re getting one this month, and since I spent years watching the original show, there’s a good chance I’ll tune in.
  • Similarly, no one asked for a Superman prequel set on Krypton, but we’re getting one called Krypton, airing on the 21st, and I’ll probably tune in to that too.
  • I’ll be finished the typesetting and designing of my book by the middle of the month, and then ordering a proof, and I am so excited to be able to hold my novel soon! I know I’ve been pretty tight-lipped about this all, but I will explain more as time goes on.
  • NBC has a new show called Rise coming out on the 13th and I’m pretty excited for it because it’s looking like a new version of Glee and I was a huge Glee fan, so I’ll definitely be checking this show out.
  • I have Rachel Hartman’s new book on hold at the library, and I’m in position two, so I’ll likely be getting that this month, which is great because I adored her first two books , and this new one, Tess Of The Road, is set in the same world.

Okay, so like five of these are TV shows, but what can I say? I like what I like. Will you be watching any of these shows? Or do you have other things to look forward to this March? Let me know in your own MLA post!

That’s all for now!
