Retrospective is a monthly post to rewind all of the happenings here at thoughts and afterthoughts.
A Rewind Of:
Think Aloud/Terrible Protagonist:
[Terrible Protagonist] – Being the Love Interest (Without Knowing You’re The Love Interest)
[Terrible Protagonist] – Overthinking Dialogue (To the Extent that Nothing Gets Said)
Memes (Top Ten Tuesday):
[Awards/Tags] – 90s Kids Book Tag
Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can experience the feels together! Only shows I watched this month are included.
Big Brother Canada S5: As much as my favourites are still in it (Will, Paras, Erica, and Johnny), my god is this suddenly boring now.
Champions: Love me some Mindy Kaling.
Deception S1: The lead looks like Pierce Brown…?
For The People S1: I am legal show trash.
How To Get Away With Murder S4: Good resolutions being brought forward with stellar monologues from Viola Davis. Also: “that kid” at the end is an interesting avenue into next season.
Rise S1: Dare I say this is better than Glee? Maybe.
Suits S7: I suddenly really dislike this show and its leniency to the in-office drama. It’s far too much.
The Good Doctor: While I love Highmore and his acting remains impeccable, there’s a lack of excitement in writing that’s not being delivered for me right now. I’m in favour of The Resident, maybe.
The Resident S1: I love my residents
Annihilation: Trippy, eerie, and a thinker.
Pitch Perfect 3: All I want is an Anna Kendrick cover of Christina Perri’s Human.
Thor: Ragnarok: I have not seen ANY Thor films and ultimately decided to watch this to gain perspective as to where Thor was in relation to everything else re: Avengers. It was surprisingly humorous.
Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa): I really dug this film, it’s animation and story direction were exceptional and it took an unexpected twist that I was thankful for. Honestly, if you haven’t seen a Japanese animated film before, this is one you should give a try.

Nil: This section will be nil to focus on below but I can tell you it’s been a lot of Zayn.
It’s that time of year again! Here are some faves of this year’s ESC:
All 43 Songs Recap: Check this link out to watch all the participating countries. Otherwise, my favourites (so far) are below.
Spain: This duet makes me smile. Lyrical, lush, and has a tenderness to it (even if I don’t know wtf is being sung). 10/10 would want this ship to win.
Ireland: Will this song win? Don’t think so, but hear me out: imagine Simon Spier and Bram Greenfeld dancing around the street all giddy. Bam.
Israel: A bop. Popularity wise, it’s a shoe-in to win. It gives me 2NE1 kpop vibes (if that makes sense).
Estonia: Definitely one of the strongest voices this year. Operatic. Power. Dazzling effects with the dress. Whistle tones!
Czech Republic: This song/performance has that quality that can make a compelling run, but I think it’s missing something.
Germany: Okay hear me out: German Ed Sheeran.
Life has been solid and I hope your days have been filled with all the highs too! The weather’s a bit of a doozy though but I’m also okay for it because winter. And if there’s any better moment this month of March, it’s being in the presence of greatness of Canadian Ice Dancers Virtue/Moir.
