Ramble Session #1

So I’ve decided to do a ramble session. I’m literally only going to write whatever comes to my mind and this’ll be like having a conversation with me! Yay.

Gosh, I’m sarcastic.

And hungry.

But I already finished all the chips, so I have to wait until I deem it acceptable to have lunch. Which is in an hour.

You know, outside of the internet, I have friends, though a majority of them don’t live where I live and there’s no way I’m paying a ticket to fly to their places. That’s what video calls on Hangouts are for!

Speaking of, I’m that one friend that refuses to have any form of social media other that Google+. How sad am I?!

Anyway, as I was saying, my friends in the real world and live near me, I don’t if I should count as friends. Their more like, I dunno, people that I spend the day with, and kind of like, but past that, I do NOTHING with them. The rest of them go and hangout together and I’m just like “Can I come?” and they sort of look and me and go “Naaahhhh…”

But it’s fine! I have you guys (which I still don’t get, I mean, people like to hear jabber on about stuff!?) the Goodreads community, and this one friend I’ve been messaging for the last 5 hours that should be awake by now and isn’t responding to any of my messages and we were supposed to have a video call today.

I’m trying to find a wordcount on here, but I can’t find it. Maybe there isn’t a wordcount on WordPress…?

 

Well anyways, thanks for listening (or technically reading!) my ramble. I hope you enjoyed it!

Trends

Trends come and go. I think we all agree that I’m stating the obvious. But, honestly, some there are some trends that I just don’t understand…

I’ll just talk about one today.

And gosh do I hate it…

It pains me to even type it…

(GAH, gimme a sec to prepare myself)

You know that weird auto-tune extremely high voice. Yeah, I think you know which one I’m talking about. Like when you stub your toe on the leg of a table and you scream out in pain, then your voice cracks.

Yep that one.

And, look, I get it. Some of you guys think that it’s fine, and I’m not judging, but I honestly don’t care for it. What happened to just normal singing. I mean, have you ever listened to Barbra Streisand singing ‘Don’t Rain On My Parade’? (If you haven’t I’ll put the link somewhere in this blog post).

I’d be a happy person if I turned on the radio, and for the entire car ride, I don’t listen to that voice. Not even once. (And also no ads, because that takes up 3/4 of the car ride).

I know this is more rant-y than usual, but I really needed to get this of my chest.

Well Then…

SOOOOOO…

Many things happened these last few months that I want to go over in a numbered recap. This is gonna be a while, so just hang in there, grab a charger, and maybe some food (I suggest cereal because why not?!)

  1. Sherlock Season 4 began, then it ended, and I’m still not over it.
  2. Hamilton erupted (very rudely) into my life.
  3. I tried many times to the Newsies jump (each time I failed miserably).
  4. I got into musical theatre.
  5. I feel like I know the plot of Hamilton inside out.
  6. I got into roleplaying on Goodreads.
  7. I made FRIENDS ON GOODREADS. That was in all caps because I’m wondering how I actually made friends.
  8. I found an oddly accurate definition of me on Urban Dictionary.
  9. I got Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas and I finished reading them in about a week.
  10. I came back in contact with a friend of mine.
  11. I (sort of) dumped a friend of mine (or at least I thought this person was a friend of mine…)
  12. I STARTED FANDOM QUOTE OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. I got WAYYYYY into my Goodreads groups (it’s kind of worrying). Every time I go on my laptop (and there is good WiFi) the first thing I check is my Goodreads.
  14. I finished Castle. Again.
  15. I’m halfway through the Grimm Brothers Original Tales book. (Yes singular) (IT’S A THICK BOOK!)

There you guys have it! I did quite a few things this few months and I’m still very proud to be a slightly socially-awkward fangirl!

SHOUT-OUT TO THOSE IN FANDOMS THAT NOBODY ELSE WHERE THEY LIVE ARE A PART OF!

Thank for listening (or technically reading)!

Top 5 OTP’s

So today I’ll be talking about my top 5 OTP’s. As you may or might not know OTP stands for One True Pairing (so It’s sort of ironic that I’m even doing this blog post). OTP is usually a term coined in the fandom.

So let the list BEGIN!!!

5. Scomiche

Scomiche is the ship between two members of the a cappella group Pentatonix, Scott and Mitch. They run a YouTube channel called Superfruit. They’ve known each other for YEARS now, so they know each other very well. I know this is pretty mainstream, but I love it nevertheless…

4. Baz and Simon (from Carry On, by Rainbow Rowell)

I. LOVE. CARRY. ON.

I also love the two main characters and there absolute, undying love for each other. Even though a lot of people think that Carry On is a Harry Potter rip-off, therefore not worth reading, I still love Carry On. Baz and Simon have this dynamic that I always crave for in a fictional relationship.

3. Wolfstar (Harry Potter)

Wolfstar is the ship between two of the Harry Potter marauders, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. The name originates from the root words of their names. Sirius is the name of a star and Lupin is the name of the wolf that found Rome, hence WolfStar. I mainly ship them because, why not.

And they literally stare at each other for more than 100 lines. COME ON!

2. Dramione (Harry Potter)

Were any of you surprised when I said this? No, not really is probably your answer. I Dramione is the ship between Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger. I absolutely love it because I love to see their hate, blossom into friendship and finally love. It really is a rollercoaster of emotions.

AND NUMBER 1 IS… (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)

  1. JOHNLOCK (Sherlock)

Need I explain any further than this…

Troye Sivan: Stop Being So Relatable. Please.

Why is it, that as soon as I settle down with a nice album, a new song pops up in my face, and I become obsessed all over again? Well, this happened to me over the weekend, and I was listening to ‘Youth’ by Troye Sivan, and curiosity took over and I listened to all the songs in ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ on YouTube. Well, guess what, I’m obsessed!

Some of the songs on the album, I will definitely be using for my new fanfiction (WolfStar, otherwise known as Sirius Black/Remus Lupin). And others, I just relate to so much. ‘Fools’ and ‘Wild’ have become one of my many go to songs.

What makes a good song, isn’t only a good beat or melody. In my opinion it doesn’t even need to have a GOOD meaning, it just has to have a meaning you can relate to. That is what makes a good song. It doesn’t need a great music video, it doesn’t need sponsors or endorsements. It needs meaning and vibe, and as long as there are those two things you’re on your way to a good (even great) song.

I know feel as if ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ is one of those albums that you will always listen to and never get bored of.

Cirebon Day 2

Today, instead of summarising what happened today, I will review a movie I just watched (because that’s more important than retelling my boring life). MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN!!!

Review:

The movie was great, so props to Tim Burton, who is the director and the amazeballs cast. But, the plot was not even vaguely similar to the books by Ransom Riggs. But you also have to realise that they tried to put 3 books into one movie, so kudos to that.

But, character names and peculiar abilities or mixed up quite a lot, such as Emma, Olive and the ‘supposed’ Dr. Brannon (who never made an appearance in the books).
