This Is Us – s04 ep01 – “Strangers” REVIEW – SEASON PREMIERE

"This Is Us" is back and I'm intrigued. My relationship with the show has varied a lot in recent years: from a person who sobbed like crazy for all the episodes of season 1 and most of season 2, to someone who rolled their eyes at every cheesy line. While season 3 mostly annoyed me, [...]

This Is Us – Season 3 – REVIEW

I've been watching "This Is Us" since its premiere 3 years ago and althought this season hasn't connected with me, I still tune in every week to watch what happens to the Pearson's family. I'm not much of a "negative reviewer". If I don't like something, I just won't talk about it. Why put out [...]

This Is Us – Mid Season 3 – Winter Hiatus – Comments & Observations

I have been following This Is Us since it came out. I was really excited when I saw the pilot and I fell I love with it. Season 1 was spectacular and I cried in every single episode. Like, literally sobbing. It lived up to the hype and it was compelling I have changed my [...]

Sometimes Change Isn’t For The Better

I got a haircut today. And it didn't go as planned. I wanted it shortened and with long bangs so that there is a little movement and volume. Instead the hairdresser cut them too short and now it looks like I had a fringe and I'm trying to grow them out. It's not terrible... I [...]

Life Update: September/October 2017

I've been pretty absent from the wordpress world lately. Life got busy and this takes so much time!!! I have a lot of posts I have started writing and never finished, but this morning I took the pictures for my Summer/Autumn haul (yes, I am very behind) and for the post I've been cooking for [...]

This Is Us – Season 2 Premiere Review

"This Is Us" is one of the most popular shows on US cable and the season 2 premiere didn't disappoint. Although I fell immediately in love with the show when it started in September 2016, there are elements of it that I didn't particularly like: I thought the moment Jack and Rebecca met each other [...]

Hugging

Today my mom hugged me. And not in a congratulatory "Happy Birthday" or "Happy New Year" way. We hadn't hugged like that since that morning in high school, when I basically had a breakdown in the bathroom. This time, we stumbled upon each other in the kitchen and she hugged me. So of course, I've [...]

Letting It All Out

Today I sat in mt bathroom floor and cried for 20 minutes. It hadn't happened in a couple of months and in the last couple of days. I was truly feeling better. I wanted to study, to do things and get my driving licence. But apparently something inside of me said "No!" and I found [...]

“Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah

I finished reading this book a couple of minutes ago and as soon as I turned over the past page (and I finished crying) I started typing this review. As I wrote on my Goodreads page: ONE OF THE BEST BOOK I HAVE READ. EVER. I've discovered Trevor Noah as a talk show host a [...]
