I became a LAMB in November 2011, over a year after I started blogging to spread the word about Mettel Ray (then known as Mettel Ray Movie Blog) and to be apart of a very large community of movie bloggers. I think I was even a contributor and everything, which is why it’s actually baffling to me that I can’t remember why I stopped. Did I even give in my resignation? Did I just forget that I was a LAMB with university taking over my life? I did go through a lot of rough years with my blog during university as well, so it might have been my own personal crisis that pulled me away from that community. But that is not the point of this post! The point of this post is to talk about the upcoming Oscars, and more importantly, the Best Supporting Actor category.

Set in the 60’s, The Shape of Water is a love story between a woman and an amphibian man.

Without any doubt, I should have been sleeping during the time I actually wrote this post but instead, I just sat down to fangirl because that is my life now. I wake up, I go to work, I come home, shower, and I sit down at half past one to type incoherent thoughts about Frank Castle and his endless supply of grunts. [grunts passionately]

Even though I felt like crap at the end of last week, tired and stressed out, I still had a pretty successful week. I managed to watch a few movies, got further with Crazy-Ex Girlfriend, and by some miracle, and borrowing greatly from sleep, I finished three books! This week is hopefully going to be no different, except maybe more sleep and less stress.
