Liberal Arts (2012): A Very Biased Review

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.

400 Followers!

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)

898e064bb8979a5f9abb3a24134d35938ef22633_hq

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)

“My Inspiration’s Run Dry”

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!

Happy Holi!

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!

FC Barcelona did what!?

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!

300 Followers, what!?

HI HI HI

Well, guess what? Yes, you’ve guessed correct! I’ve reached 300 Followers! I still can’t believe this because who would’ve ever thought that 300+ people would come across this blog and end up liking something and thus end up following it?

A HUGE, HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL YOU LOVELY PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVER BOTHERED TO READ ANYTHING I’VE EVER WRITTEN! I’m so eternally and fully grateful! ❤

Thank you so so so much guys! Its an amazeballs feeling and I couldn’t ask for anything else!

Fantastic Beasts :”)

This movie. I have no words.

One thing that possibly everyone knows about me is that I’m a crazed Harry Potter fan; and thus when JKR announced this brilliant movie she was planning to make, I flipped out and I’m still flipping out all day.

Spoilers below, but everyone should’ve seen this movie by now it’s so beautiful you’ll cry! 

I admit I was all ready to cry and weep in this movie. This all brilliant and beautiful movie starts with the Warner Brothers Logo and guess what plays in the background? HEDWIG’S THEME. Yes yes yes yes! That beautiful Harry Potter music :”) So yes, that’s where my goosebumps started. The last time I’d heard this music on screen was back in 2011 so you can imagine my emotional state.

Eddie Redmayne is everything all at once – Happy, and funny, and cute, and beautiful and bags full of bubbliness. I had goosebumps atleast a hundred times during the movie including the times when Newt subtly makes a Quidditch reference, when they show the first shot of MACUSA, and my absolute favourite was the part when Newt enters his little suitcase and you see a whole HUGE, HUGE world down there.

The biggest reveal of the movie is by far the fact that Ezra Miller, who plays Credence who everyone widely believes to be a squib is actually the dark force they’ve been hunting! And also, JOHNNY DEPP PLAYS GELLERT GRINDLEWALD YOU GUYS CAN WE JUST CRY AND BE HAPPY AND KEEP CRYING TILL WE SEE HIM AGAIN ❤

Oh and Newt carries around a picture of a girl named Leta Lestrange, someone who he clearly has very strong feelings for. (See the surname!)

This movie is so so so beautiful and amazing and everything I’ve waited and dreamed for since Harry Potter’s last movie and I couldn’t be anymore satisfied and happy. Eddie Redmayne is a dream come true and you’re lying if you don’t crush majorly on him. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will make you cry and jump and dance and if it doesn’t you’re definitely not human!

PLEASE GO WATCH IT
