Can you believe we’re about to enter the fifth month of the year? How did we get here so fast? But never mind that, let’s focus on enjoying this month. There are some exciting things coming up. As always, you are welcome to make your own MLA post because I want to know what’s getting you hyped up.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 out on May 5th. Of course this is my number one. The first GOTG movie was amazing and the soundtrack was legendary, so I have very high hopes for this second movie. Though the soundtrack came out in the last week of April, I’m not listening to it until I see the movie. I’m so excited to see that group of idiots again…plus Baby Groot is adorable and I can’t wait for more of him!
The TV Upfronts in mid-May and though I won’t be there physically there, I’m excited for this event for two reasons. One, because they announce which last-minute shows they’ll be renewing and my fingers are still crossed tightly for an Agents Of SHIELD and Blindspot renewal, and two, they release trailers for all the new shows coming in the fall, and I like watching them. Should I do another post on them?
Speaking of TV, May is finale month, and though I’m sad to see my shows end for the summer, the last episodes are always so good. I just hope no one I love dies…
The Dirty Dancing remake airs May 24th on ABC. The original movie wasn’t a favourite of mine by any means, but I’m interested to see how this remake is. I’m always down to watch a musical.
The amazing band R5 has a new EP called New Addictions coming out on May 12th. Their music is always so good and so fun, so I’m really excited to hear this.
This is really nerdy but sometime in early May my school will release the course list for the coming year and I lowkey enjoy planning my schedule and courses, especially because the coming year will be my final year so being able to plan it out is really satisfying. I just hope the courses I want to take don’t overlap and there are no issues because that really sucks.
And that’s how my May is looking! What do you have going on this month? Any plans to enjoy the upcoming warm weather?
And, as it is tradition, here is an obligatory picture of my favourite May, Melinda May from Agents Of SHIELD, who did this sick move last week, proving yet again, that she is the very best.
Well would ya look at that (you know what video I’m referencing). I survived March. Though my classes are done, I still have two assignments due before I can say I am officially done third year (ahhhhhh!).
April means spring and spring means warm weather and freedom and I need all of that. I also need these next fun things that I’m about to list for this month’s Look Ahead. It’s not a super thrilling month but the fact that I’m not up to my eyeballs in schoolwork is enough for me. Here’s what I’ve got going on this month, and, as always, you’re welcome to share what your April plans are.
Prison Break season 5 starting on April 4th. I never saw this show when it was originally on, but over Christmas my brother started watching it and I happened to be in the room and boom, I got hooked. When we went back to school, he stopped watching (around the middle of season two) but ya girl just had to binge it all, so I’ve been ready for this new season for a few months now. Also, the Legends Of Tomorrow finale is moved to 8pm that night so I won’t have an overlap, and then Agents Of SHIELD is on at 10 after its month-long hiatus so basically April 4th looks like it’s gonna be great for me.
There’s a fancy gala for students in my program. I got a ticket but none of my four friends wanted to/could go so I don’t know how much fun my awkward, anti-social self will have. My roommate is going but she has her own friends and I don’t want to be that tagalong. But I’ll be dressed up and there’s an open bar and I don’t get out too much so I am looking forward to the event either way.
Lea Michele has a new album coming out on the 28th. She has such an amazing voice and I loved her first album Louder that came out a few years ago, so I have high hopes for Places.
In case you missed it, I’m co-running an online movie swap which you can learn about here and the form closes on April 9th (it’s not too late to join!) so I’m super excited to send people movies and hopefully read reaction posts from bloggers.
Easter. I don’t think we have plans, but I’m expecting a little bit of chocolate that day, so yeah, I’m looking forward to that.
Hopefully getting a summer job. I think I put this on April’s Look Ahead last year too and didn’t end up finding work until June, so pray extra hard for me this year because now that my father is retired, he’ll be home all day, just nagging at me to apply for more and ya girl can’t deal.
What are your April plans? Any big things going on? Any exciting moments coming up? Tell me so I can be excited with you!
Can someone tell me what an Ide of March is and why I should beware it?
I can’t believe it’s March already. No offense to this month but I have so many projects and assignments due this month that I’m really not looking forward to it. Not to mention that Agents Of SHIELD is on hiatus all month so I really have nothing to live for except the eleven other shows I watch. If SHIELD can skip out right at the stressful parts, why can’t I?
Luckily, of course, there are some fun things going on that’ll get me out of bed, so let’s list them. Here’s what’s looking good in March:
The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover on the 20th/21st. This is exciting for three reasons. One, it’s a musical crossover, man! I love music, I love musicals, and I know that most of the involved cast members have lovely voices, so it’ll be great. Two, Darren Criss is the villain, so not only will he be there and singing too, but he’ll be playing a cheesy bad guy, which will be very fun to watch. Three, I look forward to these shows every week anyway.
Beauty And The Beast is out on the 17th. I was never a huge Disney fan, but I adore Emma Watson, and this looks pretty neat, so I will definitely have to make my way to see it at some point.
Iron Fist hits Netflix on the 17th. This I am very excited for, as Marvel’s Netflix shows are always cool. I don’t know much about Danny Rand, but he’s seen a dragon and that makes him cool in my books. Despite how busy I’ll be, I am aiming to carve out time to binge this!
My Quidditch team not only has a little scrimmage/game/tournament thing to attend, but we’re also having a Games Day where we play Harry Potter board games and whatnot, so both those activities sound super fun.
Warm weather is coming. I know I said I like the cold weather because there’s no bugs and stuff, but I really hate being cold and the two hour outdoor quidditch practices really tested me this year. Lighter coats and feeling in my hands will be blessed.
Okay, these are some cool things and maybe, hopefully, this month won’t be too bad. I’m sure it’ll fly by. Is your March looking more or less exciting than mine? I’d love to know!
By now we’re all adjusted to the new year and have given up on our resolutions (you know it’s true), so let’s take a moment to think about all the fun activities going on this coming month.
The Newsies movie. At the end of last year, the original Broadway Newsies cast got together to film the show and they’re playing it in select theaters for a few days this month. Luckily for me, Cineplex is showing it in a few theaters in Canada. Newsies is one of my favourite musicals so I’ve already got a ticket and am very excited to see the amazing dancing and singing again!
The Lego Batman Movie. Okay listen, The Lego Movie was pretty good and though Batman has never been my favourite, I love how sassy and silly they’ve made this guy. I think one of the reasons that DC movies so far have failed to impress me is that they’re always so dark and serious. Batman takes himself too seriously, and I don’t want to watch that. I want to watch Lego Batman joke around. I don’t know if I’ll go see this in theaters right away but I will see it eventually!
Powerless. It’s a new show coming to NBC and it’s a DC comics comedy TV show. It’s not tying into any of the current DCTV lineups but from that, I think DC can do comedy well when they want to, so I hope this show works out.
Reading week! A week to go home, see friends, and procrastinate the homework I’ll have sounds nice to me!
My Quidditch team is having a Harry Potter movie night. I don’t need an excuse to watch Harry Potter, but this is a good one.
The Oscars on the 26th…I’m behind on movie watching and I usually get bored halfway through and I am very upset that Sing Street wasn’t nominated, but I’ll still tune in.
And that’s what I’ve got going on this month, y’know, aside from the projects and quizzes and job applications… What do you guys have going on? I’d love to know what’s getting y’all out of bed in the morning, so feel free to make your own MLA post and send me a link!
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!
