Everything is still great here, I don't know what I ever did to deserve it. Or how I'm ever going to be able to go back home. I miss some things, of course. I miss my family, friends, my cat (I really do miss her, so much that I almost can't look at cat-videos without going in to cuddle-withdrawal), and ordinary, every-day things - speaking Swedish, knowing my way around, communicating and just feeling a part of it all.
I do feel great here, but it's still not my
city. And I'm kind of scared of what this place and the people here are doing to my confidence - for some strange reason I seem to stand out here, while back at home I'm just a face in the crowd. It's weird. I know I'm not beautiful or extraordinary.
Two out of three of my courses are great, but sadly I hate my film course - it's just a giant waste of time. The art course is pretty much on things I already know, but the professor is great and we go to a museum almost every week, so I still like it a lot. Amsterdam in the Golden Age
is exactly the way I thought it would be, and probably where I'll learn the most.
I went to see Midnight in Paris
with two friends on Friday, and I'm not a fan of Woody Allen, but this film was all I needed and more. ( Read more...Collapse )
I'd like to start with saying, I quite enjoyed the first episode of Community
. It wasn't the show's strongest (duh.) but after being without it for so long, it was enough. Just. Please stop making fun of Britta. Britta Perry is awesome, she has flaws, but she's still amazing and not the opposite of Batman at all.
Now, for myself, to keep track of everything, or for you to see if you want to watch, this is a list of pilots I've watched:2 Broke Girls
Not as hopeless as I feared. Still, if the scripts don't grow from the pilot, I'm dropping it. Giving it two more episodes because of my enormous crush on Kat Dennings.The New Girl
Ergh, not really sure what I think, honestly. This one, as with 2BG
, wasn't as bad as I expected, but it was still pretty bad. I'm glad Damon Wayans Jr. is still doing Happy Endings (which I love
). Giving it one more try, because half hour (20 min) comedies are easy to watch.Revenge
HA! Uhm, sorry. It's a bit like Desperate Housewives
, but younger. Didn't hate it, didn't love it, but it was entertaining. And I do have a thing for female leads, even though she's every clichéd venger ever.Pan Am
Not as "wannabe Mad Men
" as I thought. Will keep watching.Prime Suspect
I never saw the Helen Mirren series, except for the last episode, so I can't really compare the two. But I did like the pilot of this one. And it has Kirk Acevedo, I can always use more Joe Toye in my life.Homeland
Just so good
. Though it doesn't actually premiere until October 2nd so the next episode is far away - I want it now! Damian Lewis and Claire Danes were both outstanding.
I think that's all, for now... Did anyone watch Person of Interest
and was it any good? I don't think I'm picking up any new CW shows, but I will try the first episode of Hart of Dixie
, just because of Wilson Bethel.
