This week was (finally) the beginning of my study break. I have one more week and then it’s exams all the way!
I’ve got mixed feelings about this blog…more like missed feelings. Maybe it’s the effect of staying at home but when you’re lying about in comfort, nothing really happens does it?
Dear Avengers: Age of Ultron,
Wow! I watched you on Wednesday with my brother on his day off and I’m still thinking about what I saw. I don’t know which is better the first or the second. You know, we as an audience really owe it all to the genius that is Joss Whedon. The weight and worth of any TV show is always dependent upon its writers and that is no less the case for movies. Now, we all know that Mr. Whedon is a comic book mastermind and I feel the reason why I can’t choose between the first or the second movies is because of consistency. Every time there is a change of regular writers in a TV show, the balance shifts and some people on one half fall off the scales. That’s exactly what happened to Community. Thankfully, they brought Dan Harmon back. Whew!
But it was more than just consistency. Despite bringing in new characters, the new information we were exposed to was not at all overwhelming in any way. It did not turn out to be a cameo overload like the first episode of Gotham was –groans– but these introductions were done so naturally. We already anticipated them in previous movies. Not only that but they brought in Guardians of The Galaxy so neatly with Thor’s epiphany and oh-so casually mentioned Wakanda.
I still don’t know how to feel about Bruce and Natasha.
Pietro’s hair was phenomenal.
Clint mentioned one of the most profound lines in cinema history: No one uses dining rooms anymore.
I’ve never seen such beautiful hand-wielding but Wanda blew my mind to bits with her glowing red hands.
And Pietro’s hair was PHUH-NO-ME-NAL!
A little tribute I made.
Sincerely, someone whose money was well spent
Hello you. I think it’s high time you stop narrativizing and conceptualizing every single thing you see to make more art and writing and start actually studying like a good little brain. Yeah?
Even though that’s never gonna happen. Wishful thinking never hurt no one…
Sincerely, Exam Season
Dear 2016 & 2017,
I just saw this last night:
Are you seriously going to take all the cash out of my wallet like this? With absolutely no second thoughts?
PS: 2017, Fantastic 4 II? Really?
Sincerely, someone who will be asking for alms real soon
I’m glad you contacted me yesterday. It’s been a while since we talked right?
I’m so happy for all the wonderful things happening in your life. It’s funny how back in the days you were the one in our group obsessed with boys and the girly things in life and now you’ve truly become a woman and for that I am so happy and proud like a mother watching her children get awarded by the President or something.
Yours truly, Esther
Stop constantly confusing me. You’re wrinklin’ my brain.
Sincerely, The language functional part of my brain
Dear Car Radio,
Too many commercial breaks, not enough songs. Amiright people? Amiright?
At least it’s be better than this:
I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence
–(“Car Radio” by Twenty One Pilots)
Sincerely, a population that doesn’t need your products shoved down its throat
Please don’t make me laze around all day. I mean I don’t technically because I do things…on my laptop. In other words, please see that you push me outside to the social world. Sure, I may think socializing is stupid but the truth is, when your mind connects with someone else’s even in a superficial way, your thoughts start churning and those rickety wheels in your head turn to inspiration.
The best things in life are almost always a surprise, unknown and unplanned.
Sincerely, person in the present
Dear Administration Systems,
I want to address this to the administration systems in Delhi but really this is a problem that we face everywhere in the world. Why do your employees insist on being so inefficient??
I spent 4 hours in college today trying to get my exam admit card and still didn’t get it.
When someone tells you to come back on Tuesday but then says something can be done in 10 minutes, you know there’s something truly wrong when their first response was to procrastinate.
Sincerely, disappointed with the system
I’ve been thinking so hard of what else to address but really I haven’t done much except for spending more than half my days just painting on my laptop. Need to get out of that.
But I’m only doing it till May 4th, I promise.
Yours Truly, Esther
