Monthly Look Ahead: September 2016

Goodbye, summer. It’s been real. See you next year.

But now it’s September, aka the month with the most change. Students go to school, TV comes back on, leaves turn colour. What a month. So now let’s look ahead at all the things I have going on.

monthly look ahead

  • FanExpo! This’ll be my second year going, and like last year I’m only going for one day (Sunday). One of my best friends was supposed to come with me, but she has to work, so I’ll be going by myself, which is kind of lame considering a lot of people go in groups, but who knows, maybe I’ll meet some new friends! I’m planning to see the Daredevil cast panel and The Flash’s Danielle Panbaker’s panel, so that should be fun!
  • School starting. Each year I tell myself that this will be the year that I make a bunch of really close friends and love my classes, and while I’m sure I’m just lying to myself, the optimism is nice. A new school year is always fun for a week or two.
  • Quidditch will be starting up again at school, and I always look forward to that.
  • Blindspot S2 premiers on Wednesday the 14th at 10 then moving to 8pm  all weeks after that. This show was really captivating, so I can’t wait for more! (Though I’m not a fan of the new timeslot…too much overlap!)
  • Agents Of SHIELD S4 premiers on the 20th. I love this show so much.
  • Modern Family S8 premiers at 9pm on the 21st.
  • Superstore S2 premiers on the 22nd.
  • Marvel’s new Netflix show Luke Cage comes on the 30th, and that looks pretty cool. We already know Luke but it’ll be neat to see his own story.

  • The Emmy Awards are on the 18th.
  • Overall just a lot of TV. There are a few more shows that I won’t bother you with.
  • Alex & Sierra‘s album As Seen On TV is coming out on the 30th. I can’t wait to hear studio versions of the songs we first fell in love with, as well a hear a few originals.

As always, you’re welcomed to participate in a Look Ahead on your own blogs. I like reading what people are excited for!

Monthly Look Ahead: August 2016

This is the 13th Look Ahead post I’ve done, meaning that it’s been a year since I started this feature. Read the very first one here! I have to admit, I thought I’d have more participants by now. I really only have one regular person (shoutout to JATM) and a few others who’ll join in every now and again. I did consider stopping these posts, but I do enjoy writing them and they do okay view wise, so they’re here to stay for now!

Anyways, back to this month. August, aka the last month of freedom before school traps us and consumes our souls yet again. I don’t have a lot planned, but here’s what I do:

  • Wordcamp! Have you ever been to one? They are WordPress conventions, though they’re mostly geared toward dot-org sites. There’s one near me coming up and I’ve decided to volunteer.
  • A few months ago I chipped my front tooth a little bit and I finally have an ortho appointment, so hopefully the doc can shave down my tooth and in turn make my fairly large front teeth more even and not so large.
  • Suicide Squad on the 5th. Okay, I’m not super excited to see this, as DC’s movie history hasn’t thrilled me, but this looks alright, so I’ll probably go see it. This is a pretty cool poster, after all!

  • My brother is going to University! I’m kind of excited to help him move in and see him off as he embarks on this next big life journey.
  • Enjoy my last month of freedom. I’m going to try to get outside, hang out with friends a few more times, and relax.

Well, this is officially my least exciting month. I mean, I included an orthodontist appointment on here? Ugh, well, here’s hoping your August is a lot more thrilling.

Monthly Look Ahead: July 2016

This year is flying by! It’s already July! (Excuse the unintentional rhyme). So school should be over for everyone and summer should be in full swing. Summer months are always enjoyable for me so I’m heading into this July with high hopes, even though I don’t have a lot going on.

Monthly look ahead

I’d love to know what you have going on so please make your own Look Ahead post!

  • Canada Day! July 1st is always fun. Not only do I have a day off work, but I have plans! For the past four or so years, I’ve been accompanying my best friend and her family to a BBQ and community party. There’s always good food and good company, as well as a great fireworks show!
  • Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters! On the 15th, the new movie comes out starring four very hilarious ladies. I think it’ll be pretty good, despite all the hate it’s been getting.
  • My father has some friends from University and they all have families too and once a year we all get together for a weekend, so I’m looking forward to that at the end of the month. We’re not going anywhere fancy, but I’ll take any chance to get out of town.
  • This is not set in stone, but music duo Alex And Sierra are working on a new EP that they said they hope to release in July, so my fingers are super crossed for that, as they’re so talented and their music is so good.
  • On the 31st, the script book for the Harry Potter play The Cursed Child will come out in bookstores. I’m super excited to read it and I’m currently looking into midnight release parties in my area.

Like I said, not much happening over here. I’m working full-time now and found a nice place to live this coming school year, so I’m fairly stress free and taking things day by day. I’m just ready to enjoy the summer!

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: June 2016

June. A time for summer to really start, the sun to really shine and the year to really be half over. But I’ve always had a special place in my heart for June and I have high hopes for this June. I hope you do too and I encourage you share what you’re looking forward to in your own Monthly Look Ahead post!

Monthly look ahead

  • My birthday! Goodbye teen years and hello struggling adult life because as of June 16th, I’ll be 20! That’s right, folks, I’ve been alive and kicking for two decades.
  • Now You See Me 2 comes out on the 10th. I don’t have really high hopes for the movie, as it is a sequel, but the first movie is one of my favourites. It really impressed me and if you haven’t seen it, go give it a watch!
  • Finding Dory on the 17th. Again, sequel, but Dory was an interesting character in Finding Nemo and I love Ellen, so I may go see this movie.
  • The Tony Awards! As a musical fan who isn’t anywhere near Broadway, this award show on the 12th is a great chance for me to learn more about the shows currently playing and watch some great performances. I’m excited to see what the cast of Hamilton has in store!
  • 3rd year course selection…not the most thrilling event, but this year I’ve planned so much that actual enrollment should be painless (unlike last year) and it’ll be good to get that out of the way.


And that’s June for me. Nothing too exciting. Not even my birthday, as that’s never a huge deal. But I’m just glad to have some warm weather. I know a few people with pools so guess and my dad bought these really good popsicles that are a welcomed treat, so I should be in for a decent summer….so far…

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: May 2016

School is done and summer is coming. Welcome to May, folks. And welcome to my Monthly Look Ahead, which you are more than welcome to participate in!

Monthly look ahead

Last month I literally had no plans and nothing exciting happened. It was so sad to glance at my calendar and see that the only things I had written on it all month were exam and study session times. The good news is, May is a fresh change and I have several things to look forward to!

  • Captain America: Civil War! Coming out on the 6th! Of course this is my number one. It’s gotten so much hype and every early review says it’s amazing. I have high hopes, even if I can’t really decide if I’m Team Cap or Team Iron Man.
  • Alice Through The Looking Glass on the 27th. I really enjoyed the first Alice In Wonderland. The visual effects were cool, the cast was great and Cheshire Cat was amazing. Of course I’m a little wary for this new movie, as sequels can be hit or miss, but I’m still excited to see it and see the cool characters again!

  • May is usually the month where TV networks shows announce new shows that have been picked up for the fall and old shows that have been renewed. While a lot of my shows have gotten renewal announcements already, I’m still anxiously awaiting a few, and I’m also really looking forward to hear about new shows coming. One I’m particularly hopeful for is Riverdale, the Archie Comic TV show.
  • Speaking of TV, May is the month of season finales. And while that’ll likely mean shocking and/or heartbreaking cliffhangers that will definitively make me wish away summer, I’m still excited to see them.
  • Being back home for the summer…meaning I won’t have to kill bugs myself, I can hang with my friends, and I don’t have cook. Those are all pros, but twenty bucks says that by the time September comes, I’ll be dying to be on my own again.
  • Hopefully getting a job this month. I wanted something in my field but no such luck… either way, having something to do instead of watching daytime TV will be nice.

And that’s how my May is shaping up to be. I’m just glad to not have any essays or exams to worry about. I can’t believe I’m halfway done University already….

Anyways, that’s all for now!
