I decided to join because firstly I wanted to share my blog posts on it and secondly I thought it would be fun to share a bit more of my life and what I’m doing because as much as I try to share on my blog I can’t really share everything I do every 20 seconds because that would be weird and slightly annoying but totally normal on Instagram! ūüėā

I also wanted to sort of make more memories and I thought this would give me more incentive to go out more often and also try new things. It also help me kind of document my life and this way I have pictures/videos to look back at and remember stuff and smile!

My 2016 Favorites!!!

So it’s almost the end of the year and I really wanted to share some of the things I really enjoyed this year!

My 5 Favorite Books Of 2016:

  1.  The Unknown EgoРthis book is about the Freudian theory of the ego and how it effects behavior. It explains from a psychodynamic approach how human behavior is effected by the by our earlier experiences in life. I would not really encourage everyone to read it but I would encourage anyone who is interested in psychology, especially the psychodynamic approach, to check this book out. I’m still barely starting to learn psychology but since I want to become a therapist I thought I should read up on it and this book was so easy to follow and simple so I also really liked it for that reason.
  2. ¬†We The Living By Ayn Rand– This is the first book I’ve ever read by Ayn Rand and I can tell you it was really something. It takes place in Soviet Russia and even though it is a work of fiction it is quite realistic is showing what life was for the Russians after the Civil War- especially for those who did not support the Reds. I would highly recommend reading this book at least once unless you’re the kind of person who gets depressed easily by books (I’m like that too! I literally cried after reading this) in which case I would suggest you avoid it by all means.
  3. ¬†On The Road by Jack Kerouac– I don’t even know what to say about this book. This book has changed my life in such a way that I could never be thankful enough. Kerouac has been a lifesaver for me. I wanted to read this book for quite a long time and when I finally did it turned out to be so much more than I expected. It’s about a young mans journey around the US with his incredibly amusing and often outrageous friends. This book inspired me to start working on my own book starting next year and gave me some amazing ideas. While reading this book I felt like my mind just opened up and I had this amazing epiphany.¬†Even to people who don’t usually enjoy reading I would¬†highly¬†encourage reading this¬†book. Believe me it will change your life!
  4. Othello¬†by William Shakespeare– I was really inspired by this¬†book too and found it¬†a fascinating read. This is probably my favorite Shakespeare book so¬†far and I actually read it because¬†I had to for my English Literature for school. It is a sad¬†description of how a mans life is ruined and turned upside down due to racism and prejudice and his wife too suffers a¬†sad fate¬†for¬†her undying love for him. I would recommend¬†this book to everyone but if you’re a fan of¬†Shakespeare or if you¬†don’t mind the kind of olden English used in this¬†book you should totally check it out!
  5. Bluebeard’s Egg¬†And Other Stories¬†by Margret Atwood– I have been obsessed with¬†Atwood’s work since I first read The Handmaids Tale which¬†I also had to read for my English Literature¬†but last year. This¬†book is a variety of short stories which are all incredibly interesting with surprising and mostly pretty sad endings. I would highly recommend this to anyone who’s a fan of Atwood’s work or of kind of depressing short stories in general…

Honorable Mention- The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy By Douglas Adams– The only reason this book isn’t on the list is because I kind of felt like the sequels were not as amazing as the first book and in fact I am finding it kind of difficult to finish the last book. This book however (the first one) is witty, sarcastic, humorous, kind of insane and really interesting. I would highly recommend giving it a read especially since it’s quite small and you can finish it in like¬†a day.¬†

My 5 Favorite TV Shows Of 2016:

  1. ¬†30 Rock–¬†The cast includes¬†Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski and more. It’s hilarious, interesting, deep, sarcastic and basically one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen!
  2. ¬†Arrested Development– The cast includes Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Portia De Rossi, David Cross and many more incredible actors! It was hilarious, outrageous, emotional, thought provoking and more. I would highly recommend watching it even though the end is kind of left hanging because it didn’t really end (it’s hard to explain just Google it!)
  3. ¬†The Office (US)– The cast includes Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling, B.J Novak and many more. The first word that comes to mind when remembering this show is probably outrageous. From Jim’s silly pranks and antics to his love for Pam he stole our heart. Steve Carrell may be the worst boss ever but he too will forever be remembered fondly as Michael Scott. If you’re a fan of Parks and Rec or The Office (UK) I would highly recommend this show.
  4. ¬†Modern Family– The cast includes Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and many more incredible actors. I absolutely love this show. It’s¬†hilarious yet enables to learn so much about both life and family. It’s ongoing and if¬†you haven’t began catching up yet all I can say is what¬†are you¬†waiting for?!?
  5. Fresh Off The Boat–¬†The cast includes Randall Park,¬†Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Ian Chen, Forrest Wheeler, Lucille Soong and many more amazing actors. It’s funny and relatable and¬†surprisingly emotional.¬†I have really enjoyed¬†so far and look forward to more¬†episodes.

My 5 Favorite Movies Of 2016:

  1. ¬†Rogue One- Absolutely brilliant and surprisingly sassy. Even if you haven’t watched any other Star Wars movies and even if you aren’t a huge Star Wars fan you will still love this movie.
  2.  Finding Dory- This movie just proves that Ellen DeGeneres can do no wrong. I would highly recommend you watch this movie.
  3.  Zootopia- Hilarious with an amazing moral about peace and unity. Really loved this movie.
  4. ¬†Sausage Party- I would definitely not recommend this to everyone but if you are a fan of Seth Rogen do find some time to check it out. It’s quite funny!
  5. ¬†Central Intelligence-¬†Hilarious and also very interesting! Definitely check it out if you haven’t so far.

My Favorite Musicians In 2016:

I hardly ever listen to new music so all the musicians below are going to be kind of old but they are what I listened to most this year.

  1.  Janis Joplin
  2.  Bob Dylan
  3.  The Beatles
  4.  Loudon Wainwright
  5. ¬†Seth MacFarlane- Yes you read right! I said Seth MacFarlane. If you’ve heard of him before it’s probably because of his TV shows or movies but yes he does music to. If you’ve seen anything he’s worked on before don’t be scared because his music is the exact opposite. It’s deep, meaningful, beautiful, and truly amazing. Please do check out his music if you have some time!

So those are my favorites for this year! Please let me know yours in the comments below I would love to hear from you!

Also really random question but if anyone has a good recipe with parsnips let me know because I bought some yesterday but now I kind of am not sure what to do with them because I’ve never had parsnip before and I have no idea what they taste¬†like… Thank you!! ūüôā

T.V Show Review: Jessica Jones

*Warning: Contains Spoilers*

“A big part of the job is looking for the worst in people. Turns out I excel at that.”

I started watching Jessica Jones last Friday and have been absolutely obsessed with it ever since. I have literally told everyone I know to watch it because it is the most amazing show I’ve ever seen. Marvel never seems to disappoint and Jessica Jones is evidence of that.

Jessica Jones is a Netflix original series that revolves around the life of Jessica Jones a sort of anti-hero. She is extremely introverted and has barely any friends at the beginning. We also see that she has superhuman strength and later in the show we realize she has been experimented on which is why she has this super power. In the start we see her throwing a man out of her door after she tells him his wife is cheating on him- she’s a private detective. However the plot gets even better when we see her following around a random man we later realize is Luke- a man she has a lot of history with.

Jessica, from the minute the show starts till the end, is the brooding, introverted, badass, brunette I wanted to model my life after. She doesn’t care what people have to say, she doesn’t even try to please anyone and she pretty much lives her own life. Of course she is kind of an alcoholic who binge drinks but then again who isn’t!

Unfortunately, her usual habitual life is interrupted by the return of her sadistic and sociopathic ex- Kilgrave. Her past finally begins to unravel when two parents whose daughter goes missing arrive at her doorstep for help. She soon starts to realize that their daughter has fallen prey to none other than Kilgrave who she assumed (hoped) was dead. She is forced to remember her past and finally face Kilgrave. He too has a form of superpowers except he uses them for pure evil and often to stalk Jessica.

 

Not only does Jessica Jones now need to protect herself and those around her, she is also forced to protect others too from the wrath of Kilgrave. This season tells us a lot about her past and how she became who she is. It also tells us that she was always sort of a hero- trying to help out others like her step sister/bestie who was a victim of her abusive mother.

The side characters on this show like Trish (her sister/bestie), Simpson, Kilgrave’s parents, Malcolm, Jeri¬†and more make the show even more interesting and show a different side of the otherwise lonely and distant Jessica- like the way she saves Malcolm who will always be grateful to her or¬†the¬†always¬†a little evil Jeri Hogarth.

   

I cannot wait for season two to come out because I’m hoping it will explain to us how Jessica got her powers, what happened to Simpson and more! That’s also another reason to start watching Jessica Jones­Рthere’s only one season out and you can easily binge watch and finish it and catch up with the show. The best part of this show is that even though the episodes can be similar sometimes they never get boring- the end of each episode always leaves you wanting more.
