“Sierra Burgess Is A Loser” Vs Real Life

Let me start off by saying that I loved this movie so much, but that’s the thing about romantic comedies they make you think that whatever is happening in the movie can happen to you in real life, and then you try to follow it and lose miserably. Sierra Burgess got her crush to like her back (good for her), but we (the normal people) no matter what we do we end up getting our hearts broken because sadly our life isn’t a romantic comedy, not even by a long shot. We live in a world which is boring and that’s how we all have accepted it because boring is normal, boring doesn’t bring you any harm, boring is safe, and boring doesn’t break your heart.

So what do you guys think should a person risk their heart to try something as daring as reaching out to their crush? or should we just accept the way things are because that’s the safer option?

Closure…

I have been thinking a lot, thinking so hard about this topic. When you want to get closure on something you try to have “the last talk”. Closure on a break up can be easily attained (comparatively to what I’m about to say), all you have to do is talk to the other person about things. BUT the real question here is, how can we get a closure on something that never truly began? an unrequited love, a crush, death!

All these things also need closure but how can we get a closure? Acceptance might be one of the answers. You accept the way things are, you accept the way life takes paths, you accept that sometimes things need to be left unsaid, undeclared, but isn’t that the hardest part? Knowing in your heart that you could have done something but at the same time you are way too scared to risk anything, most of all you are scared of risking your heart, you are scared of the outcome (or the lack thereof)

Getting closure can be sometimes so tricky because you want to get closure but you have no idea why you are seeking it, you have no idea on what you’re seeking it.

Looking Back!

Hey guys,

If it wasn’t because of the constant emails I get from WordPress I wouldn’t have remembered that I have a blog. I think I haven’t used this blog for almost a year. And today I suddenly remembered about it and I decided to check. For of all, I changed my username and everything else. The reason is that this blog is connected to my Instagram account and I changed the name of that account quite a while ago. So if you’re confused this is (or rather used to be) “A Wanderer Soul”.

After opening this blog of mine, I perused through my previous posts and OH BOY! Was I a crybaby last year?! I used to rant a lot about so many things. Glad I grew up mentally and emotionally. The last time I updated this blog I was in my Junior year at university but now I’m starting my senior year and I can’t wait to graduate.

So, just like all of my other posts, this post is also getting ridiculous so I should stop typing and go to sleep already because I have to wake up early in the morning and it’s already so late.

I’ll try to post more in the future but I’m thinking of posting about books again because I used to enjoy writing those posts and talking about books.

A question before logging out, how many books have you guys read so far this year?

I have only managed to read 17 books and it’s annoying me so much! I’ll talk about it in detail in future (hopefully).

So see you next time. ❤

“Shackled”

“Shadows lurk around the corners of my room
Walls darken as I watch their doom
I talk and talk to the air I breathe
They watch me as I try to sleep
The tick tock of clock, the stillness of time
I keep sitting as the moments fly by
I feed the monsters
I wait for angels
I watch the horizon
As I drift away in water
The fire has been burning
The ashes have been fading
I tried to shatter what has been creeping
I tried to unfold the thoughts of escaping
The shadows kept lurking around the corners of my room
The walls started to fade before my view
They still watch me as I try to sleep
I keep hoping to disappear as I breathe.”

“Binge-watching and Reading slump” (My Recommendation)

Hey guys, so two weeks ago I had a reading slump, where I couldn’t read any book. I tried so hard and even skimmed through some books to get back in the mood but I guess you can’t fight the reading slump sometimes. At the same time, I really wanted to binge watch some really good tv shows or sitcoms. I asked my sister what should I watch and she suggested me Brooklyn Nine Nine because she had recently watched it too. Let me be honest here, I was quite skeptical before starting this sitcom and I don’t know why maybe because my idiot mind was saying “O’ little mortal, don’t go for that ye have no idea about” (Okay that was such a bad attempt, I deeply apologize for even trying to say that and you should never go for the hype) but despite all my inner battles I thought, ‘Let’s give the sitcom a chance’. And MY OH MY! Was it the best chance I had ever given. Guys Brooklyn Nine Nine is such an underrated show. I thoroughly enjoyed it and binge-watched it even though I had to go to university and I was pretty exhausted that week but I just couldn’t stop watching it.

The sitcom is filled with humor, sarcasm, real issues, and EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN A SITCOM. Andy Samberg is such an amazing actor and every single actor in this sitcom is so good. If you really want a light hearted, cute, sarcastic, and a sitcom that actually addresses real social issues, then Brooklyn Nine Nine is definitely what you should binge-watch. I  highly recommend it. And trust me you’re really going to enjoy watching it.

Tell me in comments down below if you have watched it or planning to watch it. And also tell me what are you binge-watching these days and if there are any shows/sitcoms that you recommend watching?

American Horror Story Season 7: Cult (My thoughts)

Before starting off let me just say it is not a review. If you haven’t watched the first episode that aired on 5th September then I would say don’t read it maybe, I haven’t really decided if I’m going to put some spoilers here or not. So let’s just say go watch the episode and maybe then come and read it if you really have an interest in knowing what I thought of it. Without wasting any more time, let’s get started.

Okay, so Evan Peters (in every other season of AHS) had been so charming even when he played a psychopath in Murder House (Season 1). But this season he gave us a whole new level of insanity (I mean, the guy can REALLY creep you out). Also, I didn’t know Billie Lourd was also going to be in this season *shocked* and she gave off the same vibes in this episode -at least half of this episode- which she gave off in Scream Queens (Fun fact: I was waiting for Scream Queen Season 3 to air this month but yesterday I got to know that the show got cancelled). Really love how she acts. The episode focused on so many issues. Not only on the surface, where the whole episode consisted of President Trump being elected and its impact on the public but also on multiple other issues like self-harm, the dark side of the internet, children’s minds, et cetera. Sarah Paulson, as always, delivered amazing performance but still her performance in Season 4: Freak Show will always be my most favorite amongst all.

Now coming to the negatives, this episode gave me the worst anxieties. Trypophobia is one of the widely found phobias amongst people yet choosing to show it in such widely watched show is a big risk because those producers can consequently lose their audience suffering from this phobia or Coulrophobia. I was literally afraid throughout the episode not because of the themes of it but because of visual representation of Trypophobia. Somehow, I managed to watch the whole episode but I really don’t think I will be able to watch any more episodes of it. Can’t risk my anxiety when my plate is already filled with it.

The conclusion is, I found the episode interesting and to be honest I didn’t plan on watching it because I DNFed the last season after watching the first few episodes. And if it weren’t for my trypophobia I would have considered watching it but at this point, I really think that the AHS franchise either needs to bring back Jessica Lange or it needs to make its seasons more interesting like the first few were.

With that being said, these were all my thoughts and if you disagree with me on any of it then please feel free to comment below and also tell me if you liked the episode or not? and the things you liked/disliked?

Thank you for reading.

The Ruler of Books Tag

So this book tag was created by the booktuber Ariel Bissett and because I’m lazy I’m attempting to do it after a year.

The tag basically opts the question, if you were a ruler of books what kind of world would you create? So here go the questions and my answers;

  1. What book would you make everyone read?

I would definitely make everyone *forcefully* read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

2.  What would you abolish in book construction?

I have so many pet peeves when it comes to book construction but one of my biggest problems is way too small fonts. It just makes it hard to read the book and it annoys me so much!

3. What author would you commission to write you any book?

A few months ago if I had asked the same question to myself I would definitely, without thinking twice would have said Kasie West because I LOVE HER BOOKS SO MUCH!!! But 3 months ago I binged read Shatter Me Series and I fell in love with Tahereh Mafi’s writing instantly. She writes so well and her stories and everything about her books is just phenomenal. So I would commission Tahereh Mafi to write me any book (and by any book I would only ask her to write as many books as she can about Warner :D)

4. What book would you demote to the library basement to make room for new books?

Okay, so there are so many books and books series which I would rather not have in my world but if asked to keep some of them and to demote them to library basement, I would say Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. And I know a huge amount of people would disagree with me but this book is simply so problematic that I would rather it stays away somewhere in the basement.

5. What cover artist would you commission to make a mural?

Penguin classics because I love those editions of Jane Austen’s novels and they all are so pretty and cute. Besides that, Alison Klapthor, who designed the covers of Firebird series by Claudia Grey. I haven’t read the books yet but the covers are so beautiful.

6. What characters face would you put on a coin?

I want to say Mad Hatter but then I really want the face of  Warner from Shatter Me Series to be put on the coins of my world. And I also want Hermoine Granger From Harry Potter series also. So this question is really tricky for me to be honest.

The last question in the tag is, What book would you award the “Ruler of Books” 2016 Prize to? and since I’m doing the tag in 2017 so I don’t know if I should include the best book of 2016 or 2017. Simultaneously, I’m not sure if I came across any new releases in both years which should be granted with the said award. So, I’m not going to answer this question and I really apologize for it. But if anyone of you wants, you can also do this tag and don’t forget to tell me in the comments below what kind of world would you create if you were the ruler of books?
