Listening to: Regular Show Soundtrack (1 Year Anniversary)

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

It's been one year since Regular Show ended, and I still constantly refer back to old episodes and have been trying to find solace in new cartoons. The show has left a hole in my heart, even though I am excited about JG's new show 'Close Enough' on TBS. At the moment my cartoon cravings have been satiated by the new season of Family Guy, which is really good. But one thing I do miss from Regular Show that Family Guy doesn't have is an amazing soundtrack. The thing that matters most to me in a creative work of art, as I've stated before, is it's art style and music. And Regular Show's simplistic yet elaborate animation style, and it's classic hits soundtrack made for a great show. Most of their songs are old 80's and 90's hits worked into montages during the show. In this list, I give my favorite songs from Regular Show to pay homage to the great series and its finale anniversary. I also put which episodes they were included in and who they were by.

Reinvention in 2018

Sunday, January 7, 2018

Whenever a new year starts, it’s common for many people to want to reinvent themselves and better their lives for the new year. They start going to the gym, eating healthy, make plans to boost their productivity and accomplish their goals. Of course, by the end of January, it’s very easy to forget these promises we make to ourselves and slip back into our old ways.

But if you’re like me, and determined to make 2018 the best year of your life (so far of course), you’re staying with your plan. I made a list of what I want to accomplish this year in my journal, which you can read here, but just to make sure I follow them at the end of this year, I sent myself a letter to my future self virtually, that I will receive January 2nd, 2019.

Using the website, I was able to send myself an email that I will receive a year from now. If you want to check in with yourself one year from now, use this site to send yourself an email from 1 to 5 years from now! It’s a really cool concept.

New Years' Resolutions

Monday, January 1, 2018

New Year People! Pretty surreal to finally be in 2018 already... so many things happening this year. My graduation, start of college, senior prom, and so many trips and adventures to be had... exciting!

I wrote a special journal entry for this occasion, and I wanted to share for celebration's sake(some stuff blurred out for privacy purposes).

I'm gonna try to make this year as productive as possible. Achieving my goals one year at a time. I even wrote a letter to myself for June after I graduate, 6 months from now! Crazy to think everything will be so different.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Pixar has really outdone themselves with their new feature film, 'Coco'. This film has restored my faith and excitement in Pixar and I can't wait for their soon upcoming movies.

Coco wasn't a big movie on my list for this year. For some reason when I saw the trailer, I wasn't drawn to the movie, so when my friend told me she wanted to go out to see Coco in theaters, I was confused.

Let me preface this by saying the trailer does not serve the movie justice. It doesn't portray the emotional parts well, only focusing on the goofier parts of the film, which were still very entertaining but not the main focal point.
