[Retrospective] – A Rewind Of: December 2016

Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings, thoughts, and discussions here at thoughts and afterthoughts. 


A Rewind Of:
December 2016



Think Aloud/Terrible Protagonist:

Sad category is sad.


Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (2016)

Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):

#132 – New To Me Authors of 2016
#133 – 2017 Releases I’m Excited For (First Half of 2017)
Thinker Awards – Best in 2016 Fiction (26 Bookish Categories!)


[Awards/Tag]: T’is the Season Book Tag

Other Feels:

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!)

Shows I Am Perpetually Behind On: Arrow, The Flash, Agents of Shield, Vampire Dairies. The Blacklist S3, Quantico S2, Luke Cage

Black Mirror S1: One night I decided to watch the first season with my bud. Despite plot holes everywhere, it’s actually quite good!

Class S1: Still no caught up with the finale.

Designated Survivor S1: Answers, just give me answersssssss.

Kim’s Convenience: Enjoyable, but have become behind.

Mr. Robot S2: To nobody’s surprise, I am behind (by 3 episodes to the finale and I will leave this here until I actually watch it as a reminder.)

The Real O’Neals S2: Not gonna lie, the Glee-esqe choir song at the end of the midseason was great (re: Sia’s The Greatest)

Westworld S1: It all makes so much sense…BUT WHY DID MAEVE NOOOOO.

Younger S3: Mad. I am mad.

Yuri on Ice S1: I do not like the ease to which skating is represented on this show. It’s just unrealistic is all.


Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive: For what it is — a long cut-scene, it’s not bad. But everything else? Yeah, it’s pretty bad. But it’s to lead you into the game, so it’s understandable. But Nyx and Regis feels are real.

Deepwater Horizon: My hands were clammy watching this.

Girl on the Train: This was terrible.


(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)


High School Musical 2 – Gotta Go My Own Way (you bet)

The Chainsmokers – Paris 

The Nor’Easters – Rise Up (Andra Day) (A Cappella)


I’m still adjusting to 201″7″

  1. Out of all the songs I expected to pop up, Gotta Go My Own Way was not one of them and now I’m having a jam sesh to said song. What a tune! Yuri on Ice has been my filler for this reading slump I’m in, it’s just so cute. I keep meaning to catch up with Mr. Robot but at this point I can’t even remember the last episode I watched so I might have to start from the beginning of s2.
