Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a “haul post,” and since I recently picked up a couple of random things at Five Below, I thought it would be fun to share them with you all today. Random side note: any fellow RuPaul’s Drag Race fans out there? Can we PLEASE talk about yesterdays #AllStars3 finale? Sigh… (don’t get me wrong I really like Trixie but my girl Shangela deserved that crown!).
It’s that time of year again: The Oscars! If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you already know that I look forward to the The Oscars each year. Every year I make it my personal goal to see ALL of the Oscar nominated films BEFORE the Oscars (and before they even get nominated!). I love seeing dozens of movies throughout the year and guessing which films the Academy will recognize. (I’m usually 90% right!).
Unfortunately, this is the first time in TEN years that I haven’t completed my goal of seeing every ‘Best Picture’ Oscar nominated film. But I have seen most of them (that counts for something, right?). For the past four years I’ve been able to correctly predict (almost) EVERY major Oscar win (I only got one prediction wrong back in 2015 and one wrong in 2017) so here’s hoping for another year of successful predictions.
Here are my predictions for the 90th Academy Awards:
Raise your hand if you also saw Black Panther last weekend. Can we all just talk about how amazing that film was?! I’m seriously thinking about seeing it again soon! Since I spend last weekend seeing the latest Marvel film and since I had such a blast sharing my favorite Disney films last week, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Marvel and Star Wars films with you guys today!
Since there are significantly less Marvel (18) and Star Wars (only 9) films then there are Disney films, I decided to go with my top five favorite films (instead of top 20 like with my Disney list).
Here are my five favorite Marvel films (in no particular order):
From the classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to 2016’s Moana, Walt Disney Animation Studios has released 56 full-length animated films to date. Today I wanted to share a few of my personal favorite Disney animated films. These are the films that have shaped me, inspired me and taught me to always keep dreaming! Although I’m a fan of pretty much every Disney film, I wanted to narrow the list down a bit. Although it was hard to pick and choose, I was able to come up with my top 20 Disney films!
If you couldn’t already tell from the photo above, Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite Disney film. Although oddly enough, I wasn’t a big fan of the 2017 live-action version. (It just wasn’t my cup of tea. I found the signing to be awful and for me, a HUGE part of Beauty and the Beast is the songs!). Also since I’m a 90’s kid, you may notice that I basically listed all the films released in the Disney Renaissance Era (since those were the films of my childhood!).
For reference, this list ONLY features animated films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Meaning, there will be no Pixar, Star Wars, or Marvel films (because those deserve a list of there own!).
Here are my favorite animated Disney films:
You know that old saying “To be a good writer, you have to be a good reader.”? Well one of my goals for the New Year is to read more. And what better way to complete my goal then by making myself a list of books to read. The only problem is, I have NO idea where to start.
Should I start with the classics? Should I read something that just came out? Should I reread one of my favorites or should I read something new? So many questions.
I’ve been having some major writers block (hence why I’ve only been posting once a week instead of my usual three times a week) and I think reading more will inspire me to what to write more. (Both with this blog and with my screenplay, which I hope to finish soon).
