Okay, so, the start of school has been incredible, and I feel like I might just be saying that every month. And that is a shocker. I am loving all of my classes and just… nailing it.

I’ve also been feeling a lot like I’ve improved in my own self presentation and confidence. I sort of did a 2 am thread about it, but I also just want to celebrate here:

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017) | ★★★★★

Love is real and it came into my home and punched me directly in the face
➽”they’re fascists!” “no, they’re catholics.” “same difference!”
➽”50-60%, we gotta cut the kink!”
➽the shot of them both walking towards him and slowly splitting……. i love cinematography and romantic love

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018) | ★★★★★

this was the cutest movie i’ve seen in my damn ass fuckin ass life
➽her outfits are so alternative cute i love them
➽”damn covey, you’re a player”
the absolute definition of romance
➽the emphasis on Lara Jean’s development fitting in with the romance rather than being contradicted by the romance
➽also I memed about it here

Crazy Rich Asians (2018) | ★★★★★

legendary, gorgeous, sweet, funny, etc etc etc
➽THE DIRECTORS ABSOLUTELY MURDERED ALL THE BISEXUALS IN THE THEATER. don’t know how yall survived but hope you’re coping
➽ummmmmm the family? was? iconic. absolutely stunning so fun so dynamic so interesting so… real despite being a soap opera esque drama? we love them

The Bachelorette (2018) | ★★★☆☆
2x eps

I started this two months ago to bond with a friend who’s really into it, and also because I was curious, and I’m now invested? yikes? also I really fucking hate being this person but… Jason for Bachelor there I Said It. even though there’s a good chance I’ll never watch this again.

Sense8, season 2 (2018) | ★★★★★
3x eps

My favorite show and for some reason I never got around to watching this season despite being super excited for it? I just love alllllllll of the characters on this show so much. They’re all so amazing.

The Good Place, season 2 (2016-ongoing) | ★★★★★
8x eps

Holy shirt, this show is funny. It follows a woman sent to The Good Place [basically heaven] after she dies, and then realizing she totally does not belong. Sadly I have stalled on season 2; it’s not on Hulu.

How were your months? Any tv shows or movies on here you’ve seen? Any thoughts or favorites? Any goals you achieved? Let me know in the comments!

  3. Girl I am actually super jealous that you’re doing well in school!!! It’s my first year in uni and I’m doing okay, but I’m really shyyyyy. I get comfortable people around me easily, but for those I don’t always see? It’s so hard to strike up conversations with them. D: Anyway, I’m so so happy you loved TATBILB and Crazy Rich Asians as well! Adaptations are slayyyying this year!!! 😍
