December Favourites: Nerd Edition

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you are having a great time and I wish you all the best in the year to come. This post is, again, my favourites. There are many things I have been loving in December and I wanted to share them with you – so let’s get straight into it.

Music

I Get Ideas – M. Ward

I discovered this song only recently and I am totally in love with it. It’s now my go-to song every time I have to do things like get dressed or shower. (Because who likes putting on clothes when there’s no music to accompany you?)

Wicked Always Wins – Once Upon a Time (Rebecca Mader)

I LOVE THIS SONG. It’s from the musical episode from Once Upon a Time (check out the post I’ve written about the show here) and it’s just been constantly on my mind for the last month. I love Zelena, Rebecca Mader and everything about it. (Also, my favourite lyric of all time really has to be ‘what they call green with envy I just call looking good’.)

TV

Doctor Who

Doctor Who is definitely one of my all time favourite TV shows. It’s funny, smart, ridiculous and wonderful. I honestly tell everyone I know to watch it. This month I watched the Christmas episode (goodbye, Peter Capaldi, you were amazing and will be missed) and my flatmate and I just finished watching season 8 together. I can’t wait to start season 9 now and see what my flatmate thinks!

Girls

Whenever I find an actor that impresses me with their acting, I want to watch more of their projects. This is why I started watching Girls (because Adam Driver is brilliant). And oh my god, I am now obsessed with Lena Dunham, she’s a genious.

Girls is a TV show about friendship, relationships, sex and… well, basically, life. It’s so raw and open and true and I enjoyed everything about it. You don’t see many shows like this, shows which explore the lives of twenty-somethings in such a unique and honest way.

Also, I managed to watch the whole thing in less than 10 days. Seriously.

Youtube

Movies, Musicals & Me

Have you ever heard of Team Starkid? No? That’s a mistake!

Starkid are a team of actors and creators who make super funny musicals (like A Very Potter Musical, Holy Musical B@man, Twisted etc.), often with geeky content. Right now, they are working on this youtube series called Movies, Musicals & Me and let me tell you – I am loving this. It’s about this guy, Halpert Evans, who stars in more movies to musicals adaptations than anyone else. And he’s… well, kind of cringy, to be honest. Each video has under 10 minutes and is unbelievably funny. My favourite episodes so far are episode one (Forest Gump), nine (Star Wars) and ten (Home Alone).

Films

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Okay. I heard you either love or hate this film. And I freaking love it. I went to the cinema three times to see it and I would totally go again if I didn’t suspect everyone would think me crazy. I don’t want to say too much about it because I don’t want to give anything away. But… I loved it. I really really did.

 

Miscellaneous

Christmas ❤

Finally, Christmas. I love this time of the year. I get to go home, meet up with my family and friends, eat tons of delicious food and just enjoy myself. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

(Also I got a new laptop which I am loving. And all the presents I got, to be honest.)

 

And that’s it for my December favourites. I am not completely sure whether I will be making more of these on monthly basis because I have some other plans for my blog right now… but we’ll see, right?

Thank you for reading and I wish you all a happy New Year!
