TV shows drive me insane. Thinking about the amount of other stuff you could've done after finishing a bad episode is like, wow. Espcially if you had a test the next day (heh).
I started this show called Stranger Things, and at first I kind of regretted it because it seemed too been-there-done-that. You've got a missing kid. You've got supernatural stuff. Science. A dash of government conspiracy—congratulations on making a generic sci-fi show!
Actually, they managed to do what good horror movies do to the genre: they un-clichéd a cliché. Kids and teenagers sound like actual kids and teenagers. And it's fun—like halfway between a heavy-investment movie like The Shawshank Redemption and a movie that doesn't strain as much, like Mean Girls.
Another show I started is Suits, which makes being a lawyer seem like smart-alecking bad guys and getting dough. Or maybe that's actually what it's like. Can I be a lawyer now?
It's about a genius who can memorise anything, who ends up with a job at a law firm hiring only Harvard graduates. And never even graduated from law school.
I'm a little more cautious towards YA books, recently, and I don't know if it's me or the market. I read a lot of books that I wish I could un-read to get back my lost time. Honestly, I don't know what YA books I've been reading. Where's the emotional ride? Where's the ping and the zest?
And where's the depth—remember The Hunger Games, The Knife of Never Letting Go, Blood Red Road? Instead, we get All the Bright Places, which I didn't like at all. Maybe it's not fair to compare a contemporary with dystopians, but I had to slip it in there, it makes this rant possible. Do you like All the Bright Places? Let me know why and I might change my mind. I really do want to like it.
So maybe you clicked to find out about the status of my blog. I'm back! It's a busy year in high school, there's too much to do for the usual 2-3 posts a week. I think I'll go weekly, every Sunday maybe, and try my best. I hope you've enjoyed what I've written thus far, and continue to like Bearable. Or at least take away something from it, like, "Oh, so this is what happens when you don't do assignments."
I'll definitely do
Now, back to Chemistry
