My Favorite Things: A Blog Linkup

 

Ok before I get started, I just want to say thanks to everyone who wished me well on my last post. Luckily, my sore throat hasn’t turned into a flat out cold and it looks like it’s just allergies. So I just need to take some allergy meds and drink tea with honey to keep it at bay.

 

Anyway, it’s time for Raisa and Eirene’s linkup. Here’s what I’m in love with this month:

 

Personal Objects

Stuffed Buddy

 

I really hope I’m not the only 20-something in the blogosphere who has an attachment with a childhood stuffed animal. I don’t really care if I am, it would just make me feel less weird. Anyway, this is my stuffed chocolate Labrador, stuffed Buddy. I named him after my childhood dog of the same breed (who’s now passed) and he’s been with me through every major point in my life. From my 6th grade day trip to New York to my first night in college, he’s been there. I never go on an overnight trip without him.

 

Anime

 

Untitled-126

 

Sailor Moon

 

I’ve seen a lot of anime fans rave about this show. I was apprehensive about getting into it at first but I’m glad I did. It can be very corny at times (in my opinion), but the plot and the characters are great so far. I’m excited to get more into it.

 

 

Rooster-Teeth-RWBY-Volume-3

 

Rwby

 

I love this one. It’s an online web anime that takes place in the distant future. There, Grim (demon-like creatures) roam the Earth and it’s up to huntsmen and huntresses to stop them. The plot is amazing, the characters are awesome, and I’ve even gone so far as to think up some OCs based on this series. I highly recommend.

 

Shows

 

TeenTitansTogether

 

Teen Titans

 

This is one of my all-time favorite shows from my childhood (when Cartoon Network was good). You probably recognize Robin as the leader of the group, which are 5 teenagers who fight crime and live in a tower shaped like a ‘T’. I love the character development involved with this series as well the fact that it tackles some real life issues that people face. I’ve been rewatching it because I can never get enough. 😉

 

Movies

Spirited Away

 

Believe it or not, my first time watching this movie was within the past month. I’d seen Howl’s Moving Castle when I was in 6th grade, but never any other Studio Ghibli films until this one. And I honestly fell in love. I love the characters, the plot, everything. And most of all, I really liked how (*Spoilers*) in the end, there was no character that was flat-out evil. The antagonist turned out to have a soft side, just like a lot of people do. It really taught me not to draw conclusions on characters (or people).

 

Anyway, that’s all for now.

My Favorite Things: A Blog Linkup

So I decided to go ahead and participate in Raisa and Eirene’s monthly blog link-up.

Here are things that I’ve been in love with this month:

Food/Drink

Pepsi with Lime

I’ve been craving some of this stuff for forever. I haven’t had it in ages but there’s something about adding lime to cola-type product that just screams summer in my opinion. I’ll have try and get some.

Anime

Inuyasha

When I was little, I used to wake up in the middle of the night and find this show on (I slept with Cartoon Network on). I was fascinated with some of the art work that was involved. I started watching it on Netflix and I was sad when I found I saw that there were only 2 seasons of it there. So I was happy to find a site where all the episodes are on there and I look forward to watching more of it.

Books

Penryn and the End of Days Trilogy by Susan Ee

I’m going on my second time re-reading this series and I love it! The series is basically about angels who have started the apocalypse and a young girl who has run in with them. I love the humor and the plot is just amazing.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I’m still reading this one so no spoilers please! I don’t know why I didn’t read this sooner. It’s science fiction combined with a fairy tale adaptation and so far, I’m in love. The characters are amazing and the plot is epic. This book is also part of a series and I can’t wait to read the next one.
