Warning: this is a long post – there are a lot of GIFs, and I regret nothing.
This is obviously a book blog first and foremost, but there’s a lot more to me than just the books I’ve read and loved this past year. So, after seeing so many other great posts from other blogs talking about the music, movies, TV shows, and other moments from their past year, I just had to do one of my own.
I love TV – I watch too much of it, really, but who cares about that, I still find time for other things. There are old favorites that I’ve continued to love, as well as some intriguing new shows that hopefully will continue to thrill and entertain me for years to come.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
How to Get Away With Murder
Jane the Virgin
NCIS: Los Angeles
Once Upon a Time
The Vampire Diaries
Fresh Off the Boat
From Dusk Till Dawn
Why yes, I do watch a lot of TV. And I’m currently behind on… oh, just about all these shows. *sigh*
I don’t really watch a lot of new movies. I rarely go to the movie theater, and I often just rewatch the same movies I already have. This year, though, there are four new movies that I see myself rewatching plenty of times in the upcoming years. Time for more GIFs!
Pitch Perfect 2
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
The Final Girls
There have been plenty of great albums that have come out lately, as well as some great songs I listened to this year that either came out this year or before but I hadn’t discovered or simply rediscovered this year.
These are just a few of the great songs I’ve put on my Spotify playlists. To see even more, just check out my various Monthly Rewind posts!
- I’ve spent the past semester slowly getting into the classroom. I’m an early childhood education major, and I’ve gotten the chance to be in classrooms and help out. I’m definitely not ready to be the teacher of a whole classroom, but I’m happy with where I am so far. I’m looking forward to get into the classroom a little more next semester.
- I’ve had some great family gatherings, like my dad’s family reunion that we have every year and a get-together for my grandmother’s 90th birthday – she’s basically who I would like to be when I’m 90. She lives on her own, still drives, and only seems to have some slight hearing loss that some 7o-somethings could be jealous of.
- There have also been some great little moments, like reading great books, catching up with high school friends and movie nights with current college roommates. Classes that make me think or are simply entertaining, a job that can be boring but has some funny people to keep me company, and many hours spent volunteering in a fourth grade classroom on my own time. It’s the little moments that make up a year just as much as the big ones.
