This isn't going to be a very forgiving review, so bear with me.

Convoluted plot, unlikeable characters, ridiculous endingCollapse )

I urge no one to explore old entries of theirs, for fear that you might not like what you see. I have definitely CHANGED drastically over the years. However, I think an objective glance at what you used to be can be quite healthy. I say this because we tend to exaggerate our circumstances now, because the now is real. It affects us currently and it affects us dramatically. It's hard to believe that only a few years ago (fine, seven), I let my emotions dominate my waking thoughts. I let myself be hurt and tortured by the careless words of a sixteen-year-old boy. Granted, we were both stupid but that pain and psychological torture was real. Though I might laugh now and think, "Past!Fran, you sure were a scary drama queen!" I will never trivialize it as just being "teenage angst" (which it was, don't get me wrong). That pain I felt hurt as much as pain I feel today. 

Whenever I feel emotionally troubled, or upset by my situation, I like to look at how I treated romance in the past. In every entry and rant, there is this unmistakably pungent sadness you cannot deny. But I remember immediately how that was the past; I am here today, affected but not scarred by what happened. My feelings for this careless boy are gone, even though the thoughts my of rejection and invalidation can still bruise my ego. I am able to be without him which reminds me that whatever boy comes next will receive a similar treatment until or if I find the man I marry.

And those thoughts, are quite sobering if not actually comforting.

I do not make resolutions. Why? Because I break them. Most people do, so I do not consider myself a special snowflake for not. However, I want to make promises to myself...or at least guidelines and goals for my year this year.

1. I will worry less.
Though there is much to fret about, I will worry less about it and enjoy my life as much as I can. 

2. I will be a good friend.
Even if I suck sometimes as a friend sometimes, I will try my best to be the best friend I can be when I can. 

3. I will gossip less.
I don't consider myself a completely vindictive person (ok, who am I kidding, sometimes I am awful) but I think I let my level of gossip rise dramatically. Who could blame me though?! There's so much gossip flying around and drama that I haven't even delved in fandom because real life is just so much funnier. THAT SAID, it's not productive, or nice or fair. 

4. I will encourage my friends more.
I've bagged on the male friends in my life A LOT this year, mostly deservedly but not always. I will encourage them and be confident in their maturity.

When I was eleven, I was introduced to the Hobbit. I read it and quickly got bored of it. Yes, I guess you didn't expect that segway. My crazy grade six teacher had recommended it to us. I hardly valued her opinion because I mostly disliked her. She was a bitter divorcee who longed for better, simpler times. She also mooned a lot about Joni Mitchell and had a soft spot for people who could sing. 

At the time I was consumed with things beyond my maturity level. I had a dorky crush on a boy who would eventually grow up to be an Asian gangster. I was consumed by shoujo anime, and had recently delved into scary areas of fandom that eleven-year-olds should not venture into. I was all about Escaflowne and that magical ~romansu~ between Van and Hitomi. So, it would make sense that any girl who was obsessed with love and romance (or the idea of it) wouldn't like the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings for that matter. Silly short people, going on strange Adventures (sounds like something someone from the Shire would say actually!).

A year later, the first LOTR movie came out. When I saw it, I was immediately in love. Everything about LOTR suddenly made sense to me, and I could see why my friend was crazy about Tolkien. But still, I was in it for Aragorn and Frodo. I loved them and did I love them hard...and by the time TTT came around, I had pretty much consumed a vat of Kool-Aid for Legolas.

I kind of wish that Cracked.com would not include photoplasty on their front page.
For the most part, photoplasty has got a case of the unfunnies. I'd rather read articles.

I truly believe every girl should have someone sing or say this genuinely to them. Though I might shun romantic gestures, I could never shun a song that recognizes the importance of a partner, the sacrifices that partner makes and the growth that the singer wants to achieve in order to treat their partner the way they deserve to be treated.

Material Queen is currently one of my favourite dramas of the now. However, I'm actually only 12 episodes in and I have been hearing some baddd things about the rest of the drama. Tbfh, I think that drams need to end at around episode 15 to preserve the plot but apparently this story drags to episode 22. I get nervous when any drama is over 18 episodes because I know they've just used the last five episodes to drag out an unnecessary arc. 

Spoilers for MQ and Absolute BoyfriendCollapse )

This drama is making me go crazy. 
It is simultaneously the cutest and most infuriating thing. It has all the conventions of a typical romantic drama, but has something to it that makes me go cray cray with happiness and sadness. There's also a strong underlying misogynistic vibe BUT for all dramas I seem to overlook this because it seems to be part of the package.
