Hibernation (aka Blog Break)

April 14, 2014


During hibernation, when I’m not thesis-writing, I’ll look like this …

So this situation was probably inevitable.. partly because I’m very talented at leaving things to the last minute and mostly because I’m really bad at time management. Therefore, my thesis is currently lacking form and content which I have to find, write and edit very soon; and in order to give my thesis its truly deserved focus and dedication, Mettel Ray is sadly hibernating until May.

Mettel Ray’s 4th birthday is coming up on May 1st so I might show some life signs then but I’ll be officially back with blogging by the 12th!

Writing this post is literally breaking my heart at the moment but I have to do what’s best for me and my education. I’m pretty certain you guys will understand and/or have been in the same situation that I’m currently in, so wish me luck and I’ll see you all in May!

Shameless-ly Discussing Season 4

April 11, 2014

shameless season 4 recap

If you haven’t watched Shameless, shame on you, and yes, there are spoilers!

To all honestly, Shameless is the only show I consider writing an episode recap each week because there’s always something to rant about and its 4th season was no exception. With all that was going on this season, from liver failures to jail time, I decided to do a different kind of TV-show post because Shameless deserves a celebration to its craziness. Considering the length of it, I went a bit crazy myself.

Commercial Break #6

April 9, 2014


Some Game of Thrones spoilers ahead in case you live under a rock and haven’t seen it yet.

I know I’m late on the whole excitement-train-of-Game-of-Thrones-premier but I had a really long Monday, followed by an eventful Tuesday and I just didn’t have time to write down my thoughts. Besides, I knew I was going to take forever to get it all down which meant taking the entire morning to write this post. It will be filled with all of my Game of Thrones thoughts. In other words, get ready for a very specific Commercial Break guys, it’s going to be a doozy.

The existential force of a movie lover’s mind

April 8, 2014

existential crisis

Every now and then I get the “Why do you watch so many movies?” or “Why do you go to the cinema all the time?” or any other version of the same question, and my entire existence is put under a microscope while its purpose is being investigated. I never fail to answer these questions but I usually go for the simplest of answers “I love movies” to justify this huge part of my life, so I figured it was about time to go deeper into the mind of a movie lover and explain the force that keeps me going.

Divergent (2014)

April 4, 2014


Young Adult novels are getting more and more popular and I’m not afraid to admit that I’m going with the flow and enjoying the ride. From The Hunger Games series to the Maze Runner series, books with dystopian story lines are becoming a trend and that trend is reflected on the big screens. Whilst I don’t mind the fact that the novels like to play around with similar situations and heroins, the standard for these types of movies for me needs to improve franchise to franchise. Therefore following the highly successful Catching Fire might have been Divergent’s biggest downfall.
