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.

monthly look ahead

  • 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!

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!

monthly look ahead

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!
