Monthly Look Ahead: January 2017

I can’t believe 2017 is already here. I’d ask who’s excited but I think everyone is. 2016 was crazy. But this post is not for reminiscing, it’s for looking ahead. While I do my Monthly Look Aheads by the month, anyone who wants to is more than welcome to make this a special Yearly Look Ahead.

Though I have to go back to school a week earlier than half of my friends, I still have a lot to look forward to this month, and these things are definitely getting me hyped to start a new year.

  • First of all, TV shows. The Christmas hiatus hasn’t been too painful but I am very excited to get back into the viewing swing.
  • Riverdale. The new liveaction Archie Comic TV show is finally airing on the 26th. I’ve been waiting so long for this, and even though it have the potential to be slightly trashy with the teen drama, I’m still so excited and am already planning a post on it.

  • Team Starkid has a new musical being released to YouTube on January 1st called Firebringer. Starkid never fails to amuse me and I’ve heard good things about the show, so I’m definitely excited to watch that.
  • My Quidditch team is having a Yule Ball of sorts, so we’ll get to dress up and hang out. This is happening the first week back, so it’s something to look forward to aside from classes.
  • A new school semester. New classes, new routine, new set of assignments (and inevitable struggles).

New year, new me, right? Nah, new year new classes. What are you looking forward to?

I hope you all have a Happy New year and I look forward to another full year of blogging with you!

Monthly Look Ahead: December 2016

This year is almost over and I think we’re all pretty glad. It’s been a wild year. But before it ends, we have to celebrate December, and as a lover of Christmas, I can’t wait. December is the best month. Even if it sucks, you know the music will always be good.

Here’s what I’m looking forward to this month:

  • Christmas. Of course. The best holiday to exist.
  • Writing one exam and then heading home for like three weeks so I can not cook or do laundry. That’ll be nice. Home also means more than 10 TV channels, so I’m looking forward to that, and seeing friends
  • Hairspray Live on the 7th. Hairspray is a fun musical and I’ll take any opportunity to watch musicals (as you can tell from my last post), so I’ll definitely be tuning in to this (even if it overlaps with the mid-season finale of Arrow).

  • My friend and I are going to see a play downtown. She got free tickets and I haven’t seen her in a while, so it’ll be fun to hang out with her and see a cool show.
  • There are two movies coming out (Passenger, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, and La La Land, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone) that I’m not dying to see, but they look good if the reviews are positive, I’ll likely find my way to a theater.
  • New Year’s Eve. No plans yet but probably something will happen.
  • That feeling of finishing my exam and assignments and knowing I literally have no more responsibilities. It’s so freeing and calming. Priceless.

 

That’s my December, folks. Once I get past the first nine days of studying and doing assignments, it’ll be smooth sailing and familiar faces and I can’t wait. What are you looking forward to this coming festive month?

Monthly Look Ahead: November 2016

Happy Halloween!

How is this year almost over? How is it already November? I mean, the weather where I am has been weirdly up and down, so even that isn’t a give away. Anyways, my November may be filled with assignments and stress, but it’s also filled with some fun things like:

monthly look ahead

  • Dr. Strange! The newest movie in the MCU hits theaters on the 4th, and that happens to be the day I hand in a major project, so it seems like a good time to reward my weeks of hard work! Plus it’s gotten really good reviews so far, so I’m really excited!
  • The newest addition to the Harry Potter franchise, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is out on the 18th. I can’t wait to see that! I think my Quidditch team want to try and see it together, so that’ll be fun. So far I have no one to see Dr. Strange with, so at least there’ll be someone up for Fantastic Beasts.
  • Christmas music! I start listening as soon as I can, and my local radio is set to begin it on the 20th. I already have my portable radio ready!
  • Anna Kendrick’s book Scrappy Little Nobody is out on the 15th. I love Anna Kendrick so much. She’s so funny and talented, so I imagine her book will be a delight to read. I already have it on hold at the library!

  • Is it weird that I’m kind of excited for the American elections? Like, not shaking-with-anticipation excited but a casual readiness. Maybe I’m just ready for it to be over. It’s been all over the news for like two years and as a Canadian, I super don’t care. Maybe I just look forward to more memes that will inevitably come with the results.

 

Not a lot going on, but it’s enough to keep me motivated through what will likely be a very busy month, school wise. What events or activities do you have going on this November? Make your own post and spread the happiness! I look forward to reading what you got!

P.S. Last night I got a notification from WordPress that I cracked 500 followers and I am floored! I’m so happy, it’s such an achievement, so thank you all so much!

Monthly Look Ahead: October 2016

Oh, October. This month has never been a favourite of mine. Not only do I lack interest in Halloween but it’s kind of the only thing stopping me from going into full Christmas mode. I don’t want to be that person who gets hyped too early, but after October it’s suitable. That being said, I do have a handful of things to look forward to this month. And, like always, you’re more than welcome to take my image and participate in this month’s look ahead on your own blogs.

  • Fall TV is still returning. I have the DC lineup coming back, so The Flash on the 4th, Arrow on the 5th, Supergirl on the 10th and Legends Of Tomorrow on the 13th.
  • Also The Middle and Mr. D are back on the 11th.
  • Thanksgiving (in Canada)! Time off from school is always appreciated.
  • Also this month I have a reading week! My school never used to have a fall one, but now we do. I’m excited to go home and see friends but I also know I’ll have a lot of literal reading and studying to do. Yuck.
  • On the 20th, Fox is airing The Rocky Horror Picture Show Live, and it stars a bunch of cool people. Rocky Horror has some good music, but I’ve only sat through the full movie once and I don’t remember it being anything standout, so we’ll see how it goes.

  • Pumpkin seeds! I’m going to go buy a pumpkin (and probably carve it too) just so I can roast some pumpkin seeds. They’re so good and make for a great healthy snack! (Oooh, side note: should I do a post on that or nah?).
  • Okay, I’m adding Halloween to this list, but that’s because last year I actually hung out with friends and I may do that again. No plans have been made or even talked about, but there’s a chance. Here’s hoping!

 

Thank goodness I have some fun things going on to balance out the piles of reports and readings I’ll have to do. I’m already stressing!

I look forward to reading what you’re up to this October! Leave a comment with a link to your post and also comment telling me what your favourite Halloween candy is! Mine is Skittles!

That’s all for now!

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!
