Upcoming movies directed by women!
My mom had her knee surgery this morning and it went really well, so that’s a relief. Now I’m trying to think of ways to get her out of the house a bit while I’m here, that won’t be too strenuous.
No, I read Conversations with Friends because everyone was hyped about Normal People, but there was no way I was buying a hardcover of that and I bet the library wait list is very long.
Ugh, it’s so hard! I don’t even need lighthearted, just a really good story that’s on the easier side to read and won’t be devastating.
This morning I finished Sally Rooney’s Conversations With Friends, which wasn’t really my jam, but I can see why so many people like it and are excited about her as a young writer.
My half-sister, who I haven’t seen in 10 years, was like surprise I’m in NY. So I’m seeing her this afternoon. To be clear, there’s no drama; the reason we haven’t seen each other in so long is because she lives in the Dominican Republic. I just wish she’d told me she was coming and hadn’t left it for the last minute.…
I’m so excited to just get through this day! I’m trying to get to a movie tonight, I have theater tickets tomorrow, and I’m going to down to Florida to help my mom out post-surgery (a small one) so it’ll be nice to get to see her for some of Passover and a friend of hers is making extra matzoh ball soup for me.
1. Roswell New Mexico because I’m scared that it’s truly only me and one friend of mine watching it and it’ll get cancelled and I love those goddamn aliens. Also this show called Shababnikim that’s a comedy about these Yeshiva boys and I love it so much and I don’t know why it’s not available to stream in the States…
I just watched the latest episode of Jane and had a revelation about why I’m #TeamRafael. Previously, I’ve only been able to articulate it as a personal preference for bad boy trying to change > “good” guy with a dark side, but tonight I realized I totally identify with Rafael. My family dynamics aren’t as telenovela,…
I stayed in bed until 7 this morning and it was glorious. I feel extremely well-rested. And it’s finally Thursday - a huge accomplishment since I’ve spent almost every day this week thinking it was already Thursday.
Tonight is the one night this week I get to go home at normal time I’m so happy! I’m super tired and if I happened to go bed at like 8:00 tonight that would be just fine with me.
Why are our brains messing with us? Thinking it’s Friday in Monday is so deeply disappointing.
I’m so annoyed that it’s only Tuesday. I was feeling some strong end of the week vibes yesterday, probably because I left work a little early to catch a movie, which I almost never do unless it’s Friday.
This is too real.
What’s more interesting to me is everyone else’s reactions when they find out. As far as I remember, it’s still mostly a secret that Jamie is the one who pushed Bran.
The Bran ones are honestly so good.
It’s totally fun, but let’s not kid ourselves. It’s very bad.
I won’t watch Sabrina because horror, but the sense I get is that it’s higher quality than Riverdale.
