'to live for the hope of it all' 🦋
hey, i'm maya — your regular teenage dreamer with a penchant for literature and music. check out my blog @ pretty little scribbles for rambles about my life & what i'm loving lately ♥
These past few weeks, I—not unlike the rest of the world—have been relentlessly watching Marvel Studios’ new TV series: Loki. It features the titular anti-hero (whom everyone loves) who, after the events of Avengers: Endgame was in possession of the Tesseract and got offered a ‘job’ at something called the TVA.
Yes, that’s all we were given. Also a whole two years waiting for this show.
I absolutely loved it. Loki was just given so much potential and there were so many new characters introduced! I adore Marvel films as it is, but what they can do with just one character is simply mind-blowing!
That having been said, watch me lose my mind over 6 weeks of Wednesdays when each episode was released. I’ve documented my process (it was so very fun) as the episodes came out.
June disappeared, in all honesty. It’s almost as though this month was non-existent and we’re already in July. Halfway through the year. We’re still self-isolating a year later and I keep reminding myself that there is still hope. June was absolutely a blur. I know I say that so much, but I started out in a most terrible reading slump.
Nevertheless, I did have a lot of fun and I kept up with the blogosphere (for the most part, I suppose!) I had my whole family over and the summer weather is absolutely gorgeous here. All the flowers are in bloom, we had, like 3 birthdays (which meant 3 different cakes, haha!) and we’ve been out on long walks through the gardens. June and July have the best weather in the whole year (except for February and April).
This week, I got an amazing opportunity to interview Juliet Wilson: a poet, environmental conservation volunteer and a blogger this week. I first found out about her when we studied her poem for school and she is such an inspiration!
On occasion of World Environment Month, I thought it would be nice to spread a little more about the ecosystem and this year’s theme is #EcosystemRestoration. It is a growing issue in today’s society and we must start being more careful.
…And I’m back with another series for y’all! I love analysing literature and it always seems to help my writing, too. I’ll be posting here every week and it’s basically just a category for my literature and lifestyle posts. Since it’s pride month, what better topic to discuss than diversity?
Are you looking for something to watch on TV that’s fun and entertaining? Well, look no further! Here’s my personal list of favourite TV shows and movie series for fans of YA books, for tweens and teens and for anyone who’s confused as to what to watch!
Between the ages of 12 and 14, there seem to be very few options for us tweenagers on Disney+ and Netflix. Everything seems to be too young and schmaltzy or too inappropriate! Today’s (rather long) post will be covering the main four genres I watch: Sitcoms, (my personal fave!) Mystery, Fantasy and Fiction (with magical realism).
