Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings, thoughts, and discussions here at thoughts and afterthoughts.
A Rewind Of:
…I proclaimed to some folk that I’d gladly trade 5-10 meh novels for one glorious one. IS THIS A SIGN? WHICH NUMBER AM I AT?!
Think Aloud/Terrible Protagonist:
(If you have anything to add as to why you may be a terrible protagonist, let me know, and I’d be more than happy to have you guest blog!)
Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):
#106 – Characters Who Drank From the Fountain of Youth

#110 – Summer Beach Reads (16′ Summer TBR)
Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Awkward S5: The ending was so garbage. Fuck you, happily ever afters. -___________________-…
Containment S1: I think I’ve officially dropped this show.
Criminal Minds S11: The feels are not the same now.
Daredevil S2: Watched episode 1 only but I need to continue onward with the rest of the season. inished Season 1 (finally) and oh boy what a good show.
Faking It S2: I didn’t realize this show was cancelled until it just…ended. And the relationships were messed up — such that most of it doesn’t really work. Season two was terrible, basically.
Game of Thrones S6: Hold the…. fuck *cries/weeps/dies*
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD S3: I couldn’t watch after the Spy’s Goodbye episode because my heart still hurts so.
Orphan Black S4: I remember seeing an interview where the producers mentioned they *want* to keep Krystal in the dark forever — and it’s HILARIOUS.
Quantico S1: Literally the most anticlimatic ending ever; which also pissed me off because everyone was so useless and MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER HAD TO DIE FOR NO REASON.
Reign S3: Consolation prize: I can go back to my original Bash + Mary ship goodbye.
Scream S2: Hmmmm…goodbye character who I actually started to like despite being a huge douche.
Shadowhunters S1: I know the season is over–and that it got renewed–but I just haven’t continued watching it.
The Blacklist S3: At least the father theories might be finally struck down. BUT WHEN *THEY* REUNITED IN CUBA, I died.
The Mindy Project S4: I love Mindy.
Shows I Am Forever Behind On: The Vampire Diaries S7, The Flash S2, The 100 S3, Lucifer S1, Limitless S1, iZombie S2, House of Cards S4, Arrow S4,
Captain America: The First Avenger: Am I the only one who was amused by super tiny and skinny with a massive head Chris Evans? I basically could’t watch Civil War without watching the previous two movies soooo I still need to watch Winter Soldier.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Måns Zelmerlöw & Petra Mede – Love Love, Peace Peace: Before I go into my Eurovision Song Contest recommendations, if you don’t know what Eurovision is, watch/listen to this one performance. It encapsulates the whole competition and the song is hilariously good.
Måns Zelmerlöw – Heroes: Much like how Loreen’s Euphoria had a slower re-arrangement for the opening act the year after she won in 2012, I actually enjoy this 2016 ESC version of Heroes better.
Dami Im – Sound of Silence: People be angry at politics but POLITICS ALMOST DID SOMETHING RIGHT BY VOTING FOR AUSTRALIA TO [ALMOST] WIN EUROVISION 2016 LOL.
Sergey Lazarev – You Are the Only One: Admittedly, this song is actually quite catchy that I understand why it won the top prize in public voting. But it’s literally a hodge podge of lyrics that don’t make sense and an amalgam of effects from recent years.
R3hab – Wave (feat. Amber and Luna of f(x)): One day I was skimming through my go-to places for EDM music and this came up and I’m thinking “wut, kpop?!” Solid.
Martin Jensen – All I Wanna Do: A groovy tropical house!
Kapslap – Felt This Good (feat. M. Bronx): I don’t know why (or how) but this song just makes me happy…?
Wiltril & Aayio – Still Young (feat. Matthew Kurz): Enter Summer with this jam.
A better reading month in terms of number of books read but June, you better be a better blogging month.
