Four months left in the year guys! What??

Movies

My Neighbour Totoro

I watched this just a few days ago, but I’ve been meaning to watch it for sooo long. Totoro wasn’t in it as much as I thought it would be, but he is so cute and weird. Also, catbus.

The Defenders

Okay, so this isn’t a movie, it’s a show, but I did enjoy it! I was a huge fan of Jessica Jones, so I was looking forward to this. The show wasn’t perfect, but it was a lot of fun. If you’re into the superhero genre, then this is worth a watch!

Music

Bad at Love – Halsey

I’ve been listening to a lot of Halsey lately. This has been another favourite! I just love the hook, and I can almost sing along to the whole thing.

Pumpin Blood – NoNoNo

Another older song, which I recently found while going down a YouTube hole. It’s so peppy and the whistle part never gets out of my head now.

Books

The Handmaid’s Tale

12961964

I have been recommended to read this book by a number of friends, both real and blogging. I got sucked into the story, and it was definitely harrowing at times. I recommend the series as well, but I did enjoy the book just a little more.

Games

Moon Hunters

This is a co-op game that Rory and I have played a few times. It’s a myth based action game. Basically, following along the story, you guys work together to clear your chosen area before the third night when you have to fight the leader of the Sun Cult. The graphics are gorgeous, and at the end you get a constellation named after you depending on how you played. I once got to be a “Spider” where I had a whole army of spies, and the other time I was a “Throne”, where I got to confident and arrogant so I got turned into a chair.

Something New

Thanks toΒ AnniΒ (and Zoella), I found out about an app called 1 Second Everyday. Basically, you film for a second everyday. Then you can compile them all together. Anni shared a video where Zoella used the app for a whole year. It’s really cool to see it all together. My life isn’t as exciting as a YouTuber, but I have been having so much fun filming everyday. I’ve compiled it recently as I started it early this month, and for each second, I remember where I was and what was happening when I filmed it. Makes me realize again how fast time goes by!

What are some of your favourites from this past month?

Angela.

  1. We LOOOOOOOVE Hayao Miyazaki’s movies over here! My kiddo’s first movie was Ponyo, he still* watches it and he recently got into Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service. There’s so many good movies, you should look into his movies. Lots of good ones out there!
