featuring me trying to organize my thoughts for the world to see and miserably failing. pick and choose which ones are least cringey and enjoy.
-jojo rabbit (which sounds absolutely insane but also kinda lowkey amazing and taika watiti directed it and it’s amazing)
-yellow rose (oh sweet mercy it’s getting spread everywhere represent *clap clap clap*)
-black widow (excuse me while i go shriek)
-soul (pixar what you doing)
-frozen 2 (yes, laugh but see that was one of the first movies i can remember actively watching with my sister and i miss my sister so there)
-toy story 4 (had too many messy plot twists but it teared me up more than once and by the time the credits rolled our plane landed in the philippines so it was kinda like literally saying goodbye to the past)
-new star wars movie (*eternal internal screaming*)
-listen yes tito i know endgame was a mess and time travel was a cop-out but as a content creator it gives me a lot of stuff to work with so it’s not entirely terrible
-keeper of the lost cities: legacy (chloe got me into keeper of the lost cities and i’m a little scared, not gonna lie)
-supernova (i’ve seen it in ig posts along with fawkes??? is it good? someone tell me please i beg you)
-black widow prelude comic (scared, very scared, extremely scared)
-captain america the first avenger script (i need this for personal reasons)
-this really good fanfic that i won’t link here to protect the youngs (i am this close to writing a post about fandom even though it’s been done and even though it’s obscure much like myself)
-andrew peterson wrote a new book and i really, really wanna read it
-i killed a spider with a flip flop all by myselfses and now i miss frubs because he used to do it
-me and weez are doing a really cool thing that would probably be more cool if timezones didn’t exist
-bible bee nationals are in a few days and i has a bunch of friends going (rebcake, light4thelord) and again, more screaming
-clara’s sunset fall instagram stories are making me cry with nostalgia that i don’t have
-maggie started a new blog and she deserves a call out because way to go girl ❤
-also i could link them but for some reason i’m not, hmm
-tess is probably the only reason why i’m still trying to finish my nano wip
-christi and hannah’s poetry both have this special way of hitting close to to home (i’ll willingly link in comments if you want, they’re both amazing people with beautiful thoughts)
-i’m pretty sure i was supposed to do a blog tour?? (really sorry kellyn, i’m working on it) and another one with tales of the lonely sun (more specifically merie) and just shucks it’s pretty cool
-enni spammed my inbox/chatthing/whatever with like, 350 messages and to this day i will never understand why
-i really really need keith’s help with worldbuilding because i’m clueless about stuff like fantasy
-garrett’s photography. uhm. WOAH.
-sarah’s art is mindblowing and i’m scared of her talent but also just in awe
-in this household we love and support emmie, who is doing great with the whole school AND dance thing and so much more
-ava come mourn with me about all four fingers being used on the uke it’s terrible
-abby does dead mom from beetlejuice make you cry too because i’m crying
-chloe i’m this close to asking you to spoil legacy for me and also i’m crying just thinking of aren ya can’t leave me hAnGiNg-
-my uncle said the beetles were the greatest and i bEg tO dIffEr
-he also said that ben rector was not bad but could be better excuse me
-MALINDA is just. *shrieks* really relatable and her vocal tone is just beautiful
-clara got me back into the lumineers and their music kinda reminds me of small towns and tiny houses and small roads and basically one of my homes
-because it’s christmas music season i’ll be blasting his story the musical’s “hey, it’s me,” “arrive”, and “was the word” til at least january, thank you very much. (THEY MIGHT BE ON BROADWAY AND THAT GIVES ME HOPE)
-been playing with a soundtrack for another idea i’ve been working on and i regret not being a composer
-beetlejuice. just. *mindblown* (yes, it does have issues but the themes are pretty great for all the spooks)
-beautiful people by pomplamoose
-the guy that worked on the winter soldier soundtrack is supposed to work on black widow???? i can die in peace now the world has peaked
-the sounds of like, 40 kids singing your grace is enough on a sunday morning is so deeply beautiful
-good grief i have zero romantical attractions or any intent to have any so why am i writing a whole book about it
-there are too many ideas in my brain and i’m pretty sure it’s not healthly to try to things at the same time
-i feel compelled to write this lengthy fanfic and a blog post about it because that’s so relevant (i’m being sarcastic)
-there is squealing, fangeek, love-every-line-of-every-paragraph, overall enchanted with a story jo and there’s critical, analyzing, philosophizing, will re-read a scene to break down every individual component of a character jo and there is no in between
-i have done more writing research than i have writing at this point
file not found randomness
-ok boomer is a thing and i really wanna write a discourse about it because on one hand, is it fair to dismiss an entire generation based on their conflicting thoughts? no. have many of said generation abused and made fun of younger generations, leaving behind a crueler world to survive in and mocking steps to make the world softer? yes. is it kinda funny? yup. do i need to get a life? absolutely.
-DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, HOLD A UKE BY ITS STRINGS ARE YOU DAFT OR DO YOU LIKE TORTURING ME
-vietnam war research time, one for school, two for aio lore, which says that whit’s son jerry died in the vietnam war (which must mean that focus on the family portrays it as a good thing), three for everyone who protested it
-and call me crazy but maybe it’s okay to look up these old, random, truly not that important stuff for. y’know. for research
-it’s kinda funny but also kinda confusing how some christians will be especially o_0 if you say “hey, i like studying the bible for fun!” and they’re like “IMPOSSIBLE” because on one hand, yes, the bible is sacred and should be treated as such, but on the other, God meant this book to lead us to actual joy? and? like? why would you not find joy in studying it? someone elucidate?
yeah, like that was any clearer than when i started.
i dunno that it’s beneficial to present these thoughts, raw, and unfiltered, incomplete and personal. i really don’t. maybe they just raise questions about the integrity of my mind (read: none) and maybe they just turn people off.
but i read somewhere that we develop as a society, not merely by sharing tangible matters, but by sharing the thoughts of our mind (it was about nasa releasing articles you usually find when you pay for scientific journals and i was pretty stoked even though i had no clue what the what any of it was about) so, if you got anything from this random thrift store of thoughts, feel free to take it home.
and hey, if you wanna feel like unloading your mind, that would be cool. i’ll add it to the list.
~and i know, it’s only in my mind, jo~
