So much to watch on Netflix this month :o

Luke Cage came out just a couple of days ago, which is the first on my list of things to watch on Netflix. Not only that, but this month has a lot of great shows that will be added on Netflix that I want to catch up on!

Here are the shows and movies that I want to watch coming out on Netflix this month!
  • The Flash Season Two
  • iZombie Season Two
  • Kuromukuro Season Two
  • DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season One 
  • Kung Fu Panda 3
Not to mention Supergirl Season One and London Has Fallen came out last month that I really want to watch as well. I really want to watch all the things but classes are so time consuming... D: I really need catch up and study more so that I don't fail ;__;

Maximum Ride has a movie?!

I have been a fan of the Maximum Ride series since I was in middle school. At that time, James Patterson had just released the third book in the series, and there was a lot of talk about the series being made into a movie for years but nothing really to show for it. 

It has been a long time since then, and I've only just heard about the movie now??? Apparently the movie came out on iTunes on August 30th, but it's been released in select theaters since September 30th.

This is the trailer for it. 

Just looking at the trailer, I'm disappointed in half of the casting since it didn't stay true to the characters in the books. This isn't a big budgeted movie, so I'm not complaining that much about the special effects, but I'm still disappointed about the details that were left out, especially about their wings. Their wings are supposed to be two times their length and shouldn't be able to just pop in and out like how it is in the trailer!

I've only ever watched some of Jenna Marbles' YouTube videos, so I'm not sure how she is as an executive producer. Actually, I'm more interested in how she got to become an executive producer for any nonYouTube film in general.

Anyway, I hope the movie is better than the trailer makes it out to be, because even though it doesn't look that great, I will watch it because I have waited long enough for one to come out! Maybe I'll write a review after I watch it; it's been a long time since I last wrote a movie review, lol.

When you have no motivation for school anymore

I'm only taking two classes this semester, and I'm struggling so hard to find the motivation to do anything. Granted, they're grad classes on my least favorite subjects, so I can understand why I don't like studying, but still. It's like senioritis times two. It's so bad. 

You would think that I would have plenty of time to study and do the homework, but I'm pretty sure it's because of that reason that I procrastinate so much. I think that I have more than enough time to do my homework and study, so I goof off and make plans until the last minute when everything's due, and then I'm scrambling to finish everything in time. That, and whenever I plan on studying, something or someone comes up, so I have even less time to be productive. 

You'd think I'd learn from my lessons these past few weeks, but I'm still making the same mistakes. -__-"

Right now, I should be catching up and reading last week's chapter for Financial Accounting because we have a test on Monday, but I'm not. And I know that I really should study because I'll be at Anime Weekend Atlanta this weekend, but I just can't bring myself to study right now. 

Ugh, I'm disgusted with myself. 

I'm gonna try to do better, but I've been saying that since this semester started. Maybe I should get a part-time job so that I have to manage my time better after all...

Cover Lover 46

It's been a while since my last post. I've mainly been busy with school and working out and hanging out with friends. My bro and I went to my sis and her fiance's Labor Day party a few weeks back, which was also fun. I went to a couple of events at school where I made my own dream catcher and watched Finding Dory last week. This past weekend, I went bridesmaid dress shopping with Emily and Tawanda, one of Michelle's other bridesmaid, and the next day, I went to the 25th annual Ocmulgee Indian Celebration with my friends, which was really fun even though it was super humid and hot.

I have a test on Wednesday that I definitely am not ready for. I haven't even finished reading the last chapter yet! Ugh, my stomach has been hurting for the past couple of days, and David thinks it's because I'm stressed from school. I really hope not, because that would be the first time I've ever been so stressed to the point of having stomach ulcers or something. :/

Anyway, here are some covers that I really liked. Enjoy!

Weekly Haul (89)

I should really rename these to monthly hauls since I've been doing them so sporadically nowadays, lol. Over the summer, I ended up buying quite a bit of books. This was mainly because I had a steady income and could afford it and also because I had some motivation to start reading again since summer classes were ending soon. So here are some of the books I bought over the summer that I was too busy to post about a month ago. -__-"

How Good People Make Tough Choices by Rushworth M. Kidder
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
Rebel Springs by Morgan Rhodes
The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
Unite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Quiet: The Power Of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain

I have a box full of books that I also bought during the summer, but I'm kind of pressed for space in my room at the moment, so I haven't unpacked it yet. I'll make another post when I get around to doing that, lol.
