Quote 1.13

I’ve spent this month reading Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 and I’ve finished around 40% of it. The trilogy follows the lives of two main characters as they live through pretty weird times. The title of the book is a take on George Orwell’s 1984 and is pretty amazing. Like every Murakami book, the book is mesmerising and whatever I’ve read of it till now is so good. Here is another totally amazing Murakami quote:

A little bit Alexis!

I’ve been watching a ton of Schitt’s Creek for the past month because what is there not to like about an overly extra family that is thrown into a crazy situation? Schitt’s Creek follows the story of the Rose family who after becoming totally bankrupt move into a town that they once purchased as a joke and soon becomes their home. Watching every single family member change and grow over six seasons and also make people around them change and grow is quite amazing – plus, Schitt’s Creek has really good humour.

Alexis Rose starts the show as a woman not caring much about anything other than mostly herself and the amount she’s changed (all for the better) bj the time she gives this amazing piece of advice is truly mind-blowing.

Season 4, Episode 12: “Singles Week”

 Hey, singles, I’m Alexis Rose, and I, like all of you, am single. I would just like to welcome you to the first annual Schitt’s Creek Singles Week. Now I know many of you are excited about the lock and key event. The more I think about it, the more I feel like that game kind of sends the wrong message. Because it makes it seem like, as soon as you find the right key, everything’s just supposed to work out, right? But life is more complicated than that. Now, I used to think that my one special lock needed to be like super aggressive, and come from a long line of Adriatic royalty, or have a beard, and be really into the woods. Then I realized that sometimes, a special little lock can come along, that you didn’t think would fit because it didn’t look, or act, like the lock you thought you needed. So instead of actually giving it a real chance, you throw it away because it was too nice. And it liked you too much, and cared. And now that lock has found another key, and you are so happy for it, and you just need to accept that, and find a new lock.

Quote 1.12

I finished Bojack Horseman’s season 2 last night and it was so much better than the first one. I was actually surprised by how quickly I finished this second season. This season follows Bojack working his dream job on the Secretariat movie but it also simultaneously follows Diane [working on the same movie], Mr. Peanutbutter and Todd’s new friendship amongst so many other things.

Every episode is fresh and in typical Bojack fashion leaves really great life lessons for you. The finale ends with these exact words and I couldn’t believe how underrated this show is!

I finished reading After the Quake yesterday and like every other Murakami book, I absolutely loved it. The best part about the book is that it has stories that barely span twenty pages and that makes it really easy to read. There are six stories and I think for anyone who has never read Murakami before, this is the best book to start with.
