Movies/TV ShowBlack Panther* - Quick thoughts: maybe my favorite Marvel movie. I loved this so much!!
Scooby Doo: Case of the Lake Monster - Quick thoughts: yes I did watch this because I was excited for Hayley Kiyoko's new album. I'm not ashamed. I love her. Plus I haven't seen her as Velma and accidentally borrowed the sequel. Also, Robbie Amell as Fred is adorable.
The Big Sick* - Quick thoughts: I loved this so much. I wasn't sure if I would (I knew there was a lot of stand up comedy bits and I hate stand up comedy) but I found this story so charming.
Wonder Woman* - Quick thoughts: My first re-watch this year. I love this movie so much. I feel like I will always love it.
Star Trek: Discovery (season 1)* - Quick thoughts: I was a bit unsure the first couple episodes but once I got into the story I was hooked. Also, Sonequa Martin-Green is absolutely gorgeous and such a talented actress. I had heart eyes the entire time watching this show.
Jessica Jones (season 2)* - Quick thoughts: Didn't like it as much as the first season but I still really loved it. I love both Jessica (her show is the best of the Netflix Marvel shows. Fight me.) and Krysten Ritter. But I wasn't a huge fan of Trish (I didn't like her in season one either) or her plot line.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (season 3) - Quick thoughts: This season was weird for me. I kind of liked it, but I also disliked it. I will still be watching the show, but I am hoping it gets better.
The Bachelor (season 22) - Quick thoughts: I hated this season.
Star vs. the Forces of Evil (season 2)* - Quick thoughts: I loved this season! This show is great! I am not the biggest fan of the way the show is pushing the romance by the end but I still loved it as a whole.
The Siren* - This only just started so I've only seen the first two episodes but I am really enjoying it!! It's all about mermaids and mythology. I believe it's on Freeform but I've just been watching it on Hulu.
MusicHayley Kiyoko: Expectations* - THIS ALBUM IS SO GREAT! I love all of the songs on the album and I am addicted to it. He'll Never Love You and What I Need have been both in my head since it released.
Todrick Hall: Forbidden* - Whoa! I have been a fan of Todrick on YouTube for a long while. His covers are always so much fun to watch. He dropped a musical album (30 songs!!) and with the album a video that is basically a musical movie. It's gorgeous and I've watched it twice (its about an hour and a half). It's totally worth watching, the story is really great and I love the majority of the songs! I will link the video here.
Meghan Tonjes Cover Everyday* - Meghan Tonjes, my favorite YouTuber, did a music cover each day for the month of March and it was so much fun to look forward to each day. She ha this talent at taking a song I am not the biggest fan of and making me not only love her versison but end up enjoying the original. I will link her channel here and I recommend not only watching the last thirty-one covers but her other videos also. She also has another channel where she discusses current events in the news and entertainment.
Apps/GamesNeko Atsume: Cat Collector* - I re-downloaded this app after having it off my phone for a long while. When it was super popular a couple years ago I downloaded it, collected all the cats, and then deleted it. A few days after I deleted it, news dropped that there would be an update with more cats to collect. I was so grumpy that I had deleted the app that I refused to play anymore. Now that time has passed I found myself interested again and it's been a lot of fun.
My Tamagotchi Forever - I downloaded this for fun thinking I'd delete it after playing with it for a little but I've had it the majority of the month and I've really enjoyed it. It is very similar to having a Tamagotchi in the 90's when it comes to how annoying it can be to take care of. However, it's been upgraded. The graphics are cuter (not pixelated) and there are fun side games you can play to earn coins so you can buy your Tamagotchi food/clothes. It's super simple but entertaining.Not sure how long I'll have it because boy does it get annoying but for now it's been fun. If you had a Tamagotchi as a kid and want to re-live those stressful days but with better graphics I recommend it.
