T.V. Gilmore Girls
I'm currently making my way through Gilmore Girls on Netflix, I'm on season three right now, and I'm obsessed! I love the humor and heart in this show and the complex dynamics of all the different relationships. I love Stars Hollow and Rory's reading taste. I'm planning to watch more over break, but so far I have been resisting so I can get some reading done. I will be so sad to finish this show, as I love it so much, but I have heard a few details about a reboot in the near future which makes me very, very happy!
People Frida Kahlo
Over the summer, I went to see the Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera exhibit at The Detroit Art Institute and ever since seeing her artwork and learning more about her life, I have been really interested in her. She was such an exceptional painter, and all of her works are so personal and moving. A lot of her works deal with pregnancy and the miscarriage she suffered and it's heartbreaking but I love the raw element of womanhood that it brings to her art. I would really love to read some biographies on her and have added a few to my Goodreads TBR.
The Two FridasMusic Justin Beiber and The Neighbourhood
I have been loving Beiber's newest album Purpose which I think we can all agree that everyone was surprised at how enjoyable it was. But I have also been loving The Neighbourhood, who I have been listening to for years. I just bought their latest release from earlier this year, Wiped Out! and I have been playing it on constant repeat. I really like these guys, their lyrics double as poetry and have a darkness to them, but just a hint. They are the band that sings Sweater Weather which you may remember from a few years ago as it was on the radio every other second for a while. So check them out if you are looking for some new music!
Movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens and particularly BB8
I grew up in a Star Wars home. My younger brother has loved, and I mean LOVED, the series since he was about four (he's almost 18 now) so my house has always been covered in memorabilia and talk about Star Wars. I have of course seen all the movies, but I never considered myself a mega-fan, but I really loved the new movie. I loved the strong female lead (amazing, amazing!) and I loved the nostalgic feeling I got while watching the movie even though I was never a mega-fan myself. I think it's amazing when stories can bring so many different people together for so long like this franchise has, and the energy and loyalty that comes with it is amazing. It was cool to see my brother so excited and nervous for it, and BB8 is the cutest thing I have seen in forever! I'm on a mission to buy myself a plush BB8 for my bed now. So, if you haven't seen The Force Awakens yet, I recommend that you do, even if you aren't a super-fan.
