LIST OF NEWSWORTHY
|A and I on her wedding. // Somewhere in the state of Punjab. // Shoe shopping from Lark and Finch!|
I planned and brainstormed so much for sci-fi month but I couldn’t actually sit down and write any posts because the internet was having connectivity issues. I got it fixed around mid November but now it’s not working properly and just ugh. Kill me now. However, I’m getting a new broadband connection in a few days so hopefully there won’t be anymore issues.
Sci-Fi Month Updates
Despite failing in my plan to blog and to reread Marissa Meyer’s Cinder and then moving on Scarlet and Cress, I did manage to sci-fi out some. I read a comic after ages and abso-freaking-lutely loved it! I also watched the first three X-Men movies and a few episodes of Doctor Who.
My best friend’s wedding was supposed to be in December but she calls me casually during early November and is like I’m getting married in a week or two. We texted back and forth and I’m all wonders like is she married yet or what. But then she was like yes, getting married on 23rd November so just come, okay. Thus, I planned a trip for five days since there were going to be three events and I wanted to spend time with her as she’s leaving for the US in the first week of December and it feels somewhat surreal because most days I just feel like a twelve year old with a best friend who’s a married woman. What.
I also started catching up on the fourth season of Suits and it’s definitely the weakest yet.
I started watching Selfie and it’s so-so. No surprise about it getting cancelled.
The Big Bang Theory, New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are pretty much awesome comedies.
Kind of relieved that Awkward and Faking It went on breaks and that Awkward’s next season is going to be the last one because it can get really annoying sometimes.
I watched more episodes of Doctor Who and it’s all kinds of awesome.
Revenge‘s current plot is annoying me and I need it to get better. Whiny Emily is no fun.
Arrow is going great and The Flash is super great because of how much different it is from Arrow.
Finally, I started watching Daria from the beginning because I never did that and I want Daria’s sarcasm in my life.
Sci-fi-ing it out.
X-Men (6/10) – My expectations were sky high and while I liked pretty much all the action-filled scenes, I wasn’t blown away by it.
X2 (6/10) – X2 walked down a similar path in its execution as its predecessor and delivered.
X-Men: The Last Stand (5/10) – My least favorite up till now, the third installation left me feeling a little underwhelmed.
Maleficent (7/10) – There were some things that I loved and others that were okay. Overall, a good watch.
Ever since I got my first ever smartphone in June, my life have also been all about apps. So I decided to add this category since I keep installing new apps and getting rid of the ones I get tired of/find no use of anymore.

Oh right, I need to catch up with Akward. It's not the best show, but I still want to see how it's all going to end. I'm also very happy with New Girl, the newest episodes are great! And I quite like the new twist to The big bang theory.
Happy December 😀

In this day and age, us youngsters just can't survive without the internet, haha. Hope you get it fixed soon, Sana! And Sci-Fi November… I so wish I could have participated in it, but November was a crazy month for me. At least you managed to blog throughout that month — all I came up with was one tiny post about names. Wow, Meg. Such productive.
I so need to watch The Big Bang Theory. It's one of those classic sitcom comedies that everyone must watch at least a few episodes, you know? Which reminds me… I'm still stuck at Season 4 of HIMYM, lol. And eep, so glad you're enjoying Doctor Who! Okay, well, I don't watch it, but most of my friends do and they're huge Whovians, so it's kinda hard to not be influenced. I've heard the latest season isn't that great, though.
… I need Daria's sarcasm as well. I've already got my "don't-fuck-with-me" look down pat. It's only my speech that's impairing my image.
Ahh, I hope you enjoyed Blue Lily, Lily Blue! For some reason I haven't been seeing any reviews for it around, so I don't know how people have found it so far. But it's Maggie Stiefvater — can't go wrong, right? I think I need to start getting into e-books soon, too, because my new shelf is completely filled up. Bleh. Anyway, enough of my rambling. Here's to a much better December!!!

I always ALWAYS love your playlists so much!
Also, got to check out those apps! Thanks for the suggestions, they sound like something I'd like!
DOCTOR WHOOO!!! *whoop* which episodes did you watch/how far into it are you???
*downloads all the apps*
I've got my smartphone nearly two years now but I still look out for new awesome apps all the time 😀
Starting Daria and watch all episodes from the beginning is a great idea! I should do that too! 😀

Yikes, having broadband connection is the worst. When my internet was down earlier in the year, it was the worst time. I felt like such an addict. Lol.
TwoDots is the only game I installed. I can play it over and over again without getting tired. So glad there was a new update. I felt so deprived of new levels. ;D
I can't stop thinking about WICDIV. That comic always manages to strike me in the face. I get so emotional reading the lines. Lol.
