This week has been super fun, even if the for the first half of the week I was plagued by snow! However, with snow comes the excuse (like I need an excuse!) to watch lots and lots of films with my housemates. From Monday to Wednesday Daryl and I got through D.A.R.Y.L., The Green Hornet, The Breakfast Club, G.I. Joe, Star Trek, Brave, Me, Myself and Irene, the Scary Movie Quadrilogy, Yes Man, and finally, Flubber. It’s been a pretty varied mishmash of films (both in variety and quality. I really didn’t enjoy Green Hornet at all) but I’ve finally had the chance to watch The Breakfast Club, a film I’ve been wanting to watch for a very long time now. As well as watching lots of films, I’ve also been watching a lot of TV series! I’ve been working through series five of Supernatural with Daryl, and on recommendation from my Twitter friend Jen, I’ve started watching HBO drama Girls. Despite knowing very little about it before I watched the pilot, I really enjoyed it, and I can see a lot of myself in the characters (in particular Shoshanna, although I’m not sure if that’s a good thing!) but overall it is a very good series, and I got emotionally invested in it very quickly. Also, as Jen mentioned in her blog about it, the clothing and fashion the girls wear look amazing, and the programme itself feels very 'real'.

The second half of this week has seen me going all over. On Friday I travelled back home for the day to visit my family (and surprise my best friend Lawrence at work!) so I more or less walked across my hometown twice, which was exhausting! I had a good catch up with my Dad (despite him scamming me into buying him a cup of Earl Grey in Costa Coffee!) where we chatted mostly about films, my blog, comic books and his current random hatred towards Batman. After spending an hour talking to him, I’m still not sure why he hates it! I also gave him the final volume of The Boys, and his face lit up like a kid at Christmas! It was brilliant. I spent the rest of my day at my Grandma’s and at my Auntie’s, having more catch-ups and discussing when I’d be back again to visit, which will hopefully be next week!

Now, I’m having a lazy Sunday, and preparing for my uni course starting again tomorrow. I’m finally starting the screenwriting segment of my course, and I couldn’t be happier! I’ll also be watching the last few episodes of series two of Battlestar Galactica with Robin, before we get started on series three. I love BSG so much!
Thanks for reading!
