After being a huge fan of the books, I obviously already knew what exactly was going to happen in this final installment of the movie series. (Spoilers: I was going to witness the brutal and sad and heartbreaking death of my favourite character)
Despite knowing how the movie would end, I was still silently hoping that by some random miracle the Director would’ve decided to actually keep my baby (Newt – Played by Thomas Brodie Sangster) alive. The movie starts off where the previous movie ended – Thomas and his friends deciding to rescue Minho and save a ton of other kids. Though the main storyline and crux of the movie is the same as the book, there are major changes; the biggest being that Newt figures out all on his own that he isn’t immune to the virus.
The movie is full of plot twists for people who haven’t read the books and by far is the best movie of the franchise. It also has a gut-wrenching letter that Newt writes to Thomas and by far the saddest part of the movie is when Thomas reads it. The movie is exciting and fun and happy and super sad all at the same time. The biggest low point of the movie is the fact that Minho barely has any role at all – which is completely opposite to the book.
On a whole, The Death Cure made me cry loads (for obvious reasons) but really is quite worth watching for anyone looking to end the series 45% happily.
Happy New Year Guys! The only thing I really want out of this year is good grades and One Direction back together. Keeping that in mind, here’s my biggest resolution for this new year:
The biggest barrier to my unhealthy skin is my unhealthy mind, thus I’m going to try my 1000000% best to have a healthy ass mind!
I watched Liberal Arts day before yesterday and it was a movie I had actually wanted to watch for quite some time. Liberal Arts is one of those movies that has actors that everyone just knows. The movie starts and the first thought through your head is, “Hey, thats the guy from How I met Your Mother!” – the protagonist of the movie is Jesse Fisher, played by Josh Radnor (who’s actually directed, and produced and written the movie as well). Jesse Fisher is 35 years old and has a degree in English and History that is getting him nowhere in life. Jesse Fisher lives in New York, gets dumped by his girlfriend, and then goes back to the university he graduated from – Ohio University, for the farewell of his second favourite professor ever.
If you’ve watched Avengers: Age of Ultron (which you definitely should have watched), the first thought you get when you’re introduced to Zibby, is, “That’s Scarlet Witch from Marvel – but, where’s the accent?” – Elizabeth Olsen plays a 19 year old sophomore who begins a quick friendship with Jesse and makes him forget that he’s actually not 19 years old anymore.
The movie overall however seems to be quite random, but I enjoyed it very much for one very simple reason: Every single character in the movie is obsessed with reading! (And actually enjoys it shamelessly) The movie has endless book references and a TON of quotes to be used for various instagram posts. Apart from Jesse and Zibby’s friendship, the movie has quite a few complex characters and various sub-plots, and everything involves books! I loved the movie and I loved the fact that millions of people rely on millions of books. Additionally, the movie had some of the most relatable quotes.
Me too, Ted Mosby, me too.
Its my last trimester end exam today, and guess what was the first thing I saw today on my phone when I opened it?
Yes, you guessed it right! I’ve crossed 400 Followers! (dies from internally screaming way too loudly)
My official tally is now 403;
Honestly, a huge, and big, and gigantic thank you to everyone who follows me to those really amazing people to take time out to read whatever I’ve written, no matter how inconsequential it is!
For the past few months, I have been way too engrossed in what is happening around me and thus have never been updating properly and having just really small filler posts. I promise this changes now, I’ve decided to go back to being regular blogger (even if it just means ranting about my second last year at law school)
Its been a whole week since college started (second last year of law school – self high five!), and to be quite honest, I’ve handled things pretty well.
My new goal for this 10th Trimester is to be happy and stress free – to accept things and still not get crazed and angry. Seeing as only 6 days have gone bye, I can’t really say how well this has been going. However, I have been coping!
In other news, I seem to have lost all and any kind of inspiration. My thoughts and ideas have vanished and dried up and there’s really nothing going on to blog about. On the bright side of all of this, I’ve been staying really healthy – both mentally and physically, and let me tell you, it is the best feeling ever. My acne has improved so much, and my brain isn’t continuously muddled with crazy thoughts about anything and everything. Also, my reading is on an all time high and I’ve read some really exiting books this summer (Case in Point: Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball by Haruki Murakami)
This post is quite pointless other than the fact that I really, really wanted to write and couldn’t really come up with anything to write about.
P. S – I’m actually not hating college that much right now!
It’s the festival of colours and I’ve just returned back to my hostel after a very, very, very tiring day(s)!
The past three days, our college had its National Debate Competition (for which I was a photography volunteer), and we worked non-stop from 9 AM – 9 PM and it was tiring and crazy. Since today was Holi, first few hours of the morning went in to prepping for the mass attack of colours that we’d be victims of. This thus included painting my nails black, oiling my hair and arms and face and getting rid of all kinds of jewelry. After that, all of morning and afternoon went into crazy water and colours celebration, and pictures and the first half of the evening went into removing all of that colour.
At one point during my shower, I was legit confused as to whether the colour in my hair was the holi colour or my pre-coloured hair. As a result, I have specs of pink all over my auburn hair.
All in all, the last few days have been hectic as hell and all I really need now is a nice, big vacation (going home, maybe?), but on a positive note, HAPPY HOLI GUYS!
Yesterday night, I was feeling really unwell and had a terrible stomach ache and a terrible head ache and thus I decided to skip Barcelona’s Champions League match with PSG because quite honestly, I didn’t think they would be able to win this.
Barcelona had to overturn a 0-4 deficit and everyone (including me) had huge doubts about this happening since it’s never happened!
So, I decided to sleep and wake up in the morning and check the score and pray for a good scoreline. And guess what is the first thing I see when I wake up and check my phone?
FC Barcelona – PSG : 6-1
I’m not going to lie: I legit lost my shit. I then sat and googled and looked through millions, and millions of articles and watched all the goals and cried tons of happy tears. Neymar scored a brilliant free kick and the last goal came in the 90th minute just when everyone thought Barcelona was done and eliminated.
Waking up to that scoreline was the happiest part of my week and it’s quite enough to keep me happy for a long time now!
