Game of Thrones Ep.5 Eastwatch Recap and Thoughts!

Happy Monday Novas! Omg I can’t wait to give you my thoughts and opinions on this episode so let’s jump straight in, but before we do **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!** I will be recapping significant scenes from last night’s episode so if you haven’t watched it, stop reading. To read last week’s recap and thoughts, click here!

First we have grown accustomed to the opening themes of the show revealing different locations and this opening featured Eastwatch on the wall. We start with Jaime and Bronn getting out of the water. Bronn starts scolding Jaime for being reckless in the fight last episode. Bronn had some funny and choice words for Jaime:

…You saw the dragon between you and here? -Bronn

Till I get what I am owed, a dragon doesn’t get to kill you, you don’t get to kill you, I do! – Bronn

Bronn is definitely giving me life both in the series and by Jaime’s side. I just hope he doesn’t become a casualty of war or fodder for Drogon.

Next we find that Tyrion is walking the ashes of the fallen soldiers of the battle. His path ends with Drogon perched on a mountain top with Dany ready to address the survivors of the battle. As Dany is settling into being a ruler, she knows that at this point she is at war and must assert herself. The Tarly’s Randall and Dickon are faced with a choice along with the rest of the soldiers:

I offer you a choice. Bend the Knee and Join Me… If you refuse, you will die! – Dany

Randall Tarly takes his proud stance and unknowingly seals his and his son’s fate. As much as Tyrion pleaded for mercy, “Dracarus!” was the last thing that the Tarly duo heard and fire was the last image they saw.

Jaime returns to Kings Landing and addresses Cersei bringing with him not only the news of the lost battle, but the dying message of Olenna. Cersei almost in disbelief questioned Jaime further and ended with these words:

I shouldn’t have listened to you. She should have died Screaming! -Cersei

This is a climatic scene not for the obvious reasons of her finding out the truth and Olenna’s final wish being fulfilled. Because you can see in the anger in Cersei’s face that she is starting to trust Jaime’s opinion less and less. Another intriguing part of the episode is when Cersei reveals that she is pregnant and that Jaime is the father again. What should have been a joyous moment of relief turned into Cersei bluntly warning Jaime not to betray her again. That makes me wonder if she really is pregnant or if she’s using this as leverage to reel Jaime in.

Jon and Dany are also reunited after the battle is over. Another climatic scene is unveiled when Drogon snarls in Jon’s face. Jon actually reaches out and pets the dragon. Of course Dany is watching and taking in everything that is happening, my guess is the attraction between the 2 monarchs was just increased again. But more than that, Drogon identifies with Jon which is why he allows himself to be touched. We all know that Drogon is the least friendly of the trio of dragons so this is a great moment that is backed up by a blanket statement made by Guilly later in the episode.

Did you catch it? Guilly was reading the details that 1 arch maester wrote down from the number of steps at the Citadel to the number of Windows at the Sept. The 1 fact that was not mindless was the record of the annulment of Rhaegar Targaryen and a secret marriage to someone else in Dorne. Think about it… Lyanna Stark who is Jon’s mother was held in the Tower of Joy. The Tower of Joy is in Dorne. Are you catching on? If this record is legitimate then so is Jon. He is no longer a bastard and now arguably the rightful heir to the Iron Throne… OVER DAENAERYS!!!!  I’m mind blown right now. I really don’t want to talk about anything else but let’s dissect the rest of the episode. jon

Arya is being played by Littlefinger. Remember last week when I inquired into Sansa and Littlefinger watching Arya. Now I know why. It was all a trap for Littlefinger to set up Arya. He really is so clever isn’t he? This act of deceit piled on with Sansa accepting praise from the northen lords is all the evidence Arya needs to start hating her sister. We will see how it all plays out as Arya has already questioned Sansa’s intentions earlier in the episode.

Davos finds Gendry, Robert Baratheon’s bastard son and takes him to Jon. Against Davos’ advisement, Gendry introduces himself for real to Jon and travels with the others (exceptionally fast) to the wall. Here we also meet the Brotherhood with No Banners and the Hound as they join Jon, the Wildlings and Jorah Mormont to end the episode by journeying beyond the wall.

What an episode. Let’s end it here with some notable moments and quotes.

Quotes:

“Nobody Mind me, all I’ve ever done was lived to be a ripe old age.” -Davos

“If I don’t return, at least you don’t have to worry about the King in the North.” – Jon “I’ve Grown Use to him.” -Dany

Here We are at the edge of the world, all together, heading in the same direction for the same reason –

“He’s right. We’re all on the same side” – Jon “How can we be?” – Genry “We’re all breathing.” -Jon

Notable Moments:

  • Bran seeing the army of the dead
  • Tyrion and Varys Talking
  • Sam addressing the Maesters
  • Sansa taking in the praise of the Northern Lords
  • Arya Confronting Sansa
  • Jon finds out Arya and Bran are alive
  • Jorah returns to Dany

We still need to catch up with Grey Worm and the rest of the Unsullied. We still need to find out just what has happened to Yara in her captivity by Euron. There’s so much we still need to catch up on and start to piece together, but I don’t know how this will happen with2 episodes remaining.

Ok I have rambled on enough. What did you think of Sunday’s episode? Are you interpreting the scene with Gilly the same way I am? What would it mean if Jon wasn’t a bastard? What do you think will happen next? Let’s talk Game of Thrones!

Favorite Call of Duty Game!

Happy Sunday Novas! Today is the culmination of the Call of Duty World Championship tournamnet that is taking place in my home of Orlando Florida! The COD World Championships is the biggest event of the year for professional COD PLayers and holds the largest prize pool: $1 Million Dollars. It’s no secret that this year’s Call of Duty Game (Infinite Warfare) wasn’t a fan or even pro favorite. Because I wasn’t really into the game, I didn’t watch too  much of the professional Call of Duty Scene this year. This also stems over to the World Championships. Since I’m out of town on vacation (ughhh I did want to attend the event but timing lol) I chose to just check Twitter for updates on the event. Anyway, because it’s a COD weekend, I wanted to have a discussion post about your favorite Call of Duty game!

My favorite Call of Duty Game of all time is Modern Warfare 2! Modern Warfare 2 or M Dubs as we called it, was the first COD game that I bought at a midnight release. This game holds some of my funnest and fondest gaming memories and was released November 10th, 2009. I remember playing the Spec Ops mode in which you were able to team up with friends to complete challeneges outside of the story mode. If you’re read most of my gaming posts, you will know that I am not one for playing a story especially in multiplayer heavy games. Spec Ops will little side missions that were super fun to play. My favorite missions were the stealth ones where you would used your Ghillie suits to blend in and snipe enemies.

The Multiplayer levels and movement of M Dubs was pretty awesome in my opinion as well. I don’t remember ever having too much lag or crazy things happening in the game due to conection. The controls were easy to use (and the same in just about ever FPS) and the levels themselves were pretty cool. My favorite level would have to be Estate but High Rise and Terminal were fun as well.

One of my favorite weapons appeared in MW2 as well, it was the Scar- H. This gun had no recoil, was insanely accurate and powerful. I actually thought that I was too good with this gun once I have my attachments and perks set up so I only used it when I was going try-hard mode.

My killstreak setup for multiplayer was almost always UAV, Harrier Strike and Pave low or UAV, Predator Missile and Harrier Strike! The UAV gave you enemy recon so that you could see enemies (not wearing cold blooded) on the map. the Harrier Strike was 3 jets flying over and dropping a bombardment of missiles on a single loctation and then 1 Harrier Jet stayed in the air to shoot enemy equiptment, players and even other airborn weapons,

the Pave Low was a helicopter that stayed in the air and shot at enemy opponents and the Predator Missile was a guided missle drop from the air.  Also the sound effects and soundbytes were some of the best “Tactical Nuke Incoming, It’s Over!” “Enemy Ac 130 Above!”

The Perks that I would use in the game varied based on the gamemode I was playing. I played mostly Team Death Match so I would use Marathon to sprint longer, Stopping Power to have increased bullet damage and Ninja to move silently (no one was hearing my feet lol).  I was mostly an AR player in MW2 but sometimes I would switch to a sub or sniper, depending on the level. For a Submachine Gun my perks would be Sleight of Hand to reload faster, Lightweight to move faster and Steday Aim to have increased hip fire accuracy. For a Sniper class I went all stealh with Scavenger to pick up extra ammo and equiptment, Cold Blooded to be undetectable by UAVs and Ninja to be silent.

If you haven’t played it, it is remastered and available on Xbox as well as PC.

Modern Warfare 2 is my pick for my favorite Call of Duty game of all time. What are your favorite COD games and why? What are your favorite perks, weapons or killstreaks? What are some of your favorite levels from any COD game? Are you following Competitive COD or any competitive game? Let’s talk Call of Duty Favorites!

Have a great Sunday!

A Very Gilded Drama

the-bbc-confirmed-the-news-to-fans-tonight-619209

Good day all! It’s Maria again, and as promised, I’m here to review the Hulu series Versailles. I figured that since my review of Split was on the dark end, I would bounce back with something a bit more cheerful and pleasant.

I understand that some of you may have watched this before, and a girl I know actually recommended this series to me a while ago. However though, I did not get around to watching it until fairly recently. Versailles can be found on Hulu, and originally aired on Canal+ in France before going to Canada, Britain, and ultimately here in the States. Currently, there are two seasons of the show, and a third one in the works.

In a nutshell, Versailles is pretty self explanatory–it is, of course, about the historic structure in Versailles, France, which was built by King Louis XIV during his reign from 1643 to 1715. But the series is far more complex than that; it actually goes into more than the obvious construction of the famous Palace. You will see yourself looking into the lives of Louis XIV, his family, and the nobles who have found themselves living there despite their feelings of rebellion against the monarchy. There is definitely a lot of drama, secrecy, and political maneuvers going on underneath the gilded and lofty outer facade of Versailles.

I will admit, I like watching shows whose premise is drama and secrets: Gossip GirlRiverdale, etc. But a show with genuine historical background makes it much more gripping and interesting. And that is what Versailles is. As you continue to watch the show you’re basically trapped into the inner workings of what the Palace really was: a place of glory, brutality, politics, and most of all, intrigue. And that is why it’s definitely enjoyable. And you will not want to stop watching it.

I give it a 4.5/5.

We Need to Talk About Kevin

split-2017-movie-reviews

Hello all! Maria here, and I hope you all are doing great this week! And yes, I am here with another review, but this one is different. Why, do you ask? Well, it’s not a review for a Netflix series or even a basic television series at that, as are most of the reviews on this blog, but it’s a review for a film. I don’t see as many reviews for films on here, so today’s review is going to be a treat for you all.

(Actually, I stand corrected…I shouldn’t say “today’s review” because I will be writing another review right after this one, for a series on Hulu called Versailles. You’ll see it either today after this one or tomorrow, depending on when I finish it.)

This film review is going to be all about one of the most recent M. Night Shyamalan film, Split. I had the opportunity to watch it last weekend with a good friend of mine on Netflix, and let’s just say…it was very interesting. And dark in a few places. I would say, actually, it’s kind of disturbing to boot. But my eyes stayed stuck to that film, no matter what.

A brief synopsis: Split is about a guy, Kevin, who has Dissociative Identity Disorder (otherwise known as multiple personalities). His psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, has witnessed 23 of them, but there is one that has yet to materialize. At least, not until he kidnaps three teenage girls in a parking lot after knocking out the father of one of them. If you’ve seen the trailer for this movie when it first came out, then you may recall this scene. What happens after that, though, and after you see the girls imprisoned under the basement of a zoo, things themselves begin to spiral as you see Kevin go into one personality after another, eventually getting to the 24th mysterious one.

As I said before, this movie is anything but lighthearted, it is one of the more disturbing films I have ever seen. I’m sure some reading this will be asking, “Why did you keep on watching it? Why didn’t you choose something else on Netflix?” Well, there a few reasons why. First off, I wanted to see if the girls were going to get out alive; second, just seeing Kevin in his various personalities was intriguing, and having been a psychology major, anything psychology related always fascinates me. This film was basically the Netflix film I could not put down.

(As far as being lighthearted, there was one part in the film which made me laugh a little. I’m not sure if any of you watch Adventure Time, or have in the past, but there is a character on there called the Earl of Lemongrab, who is known for his “UNACCEPTABLE” scream. One of Kevin’s personalities, “Dennis”, is looking at the bathroom connected to where the girls are being kept, and he says that it’s in “unacceptable” condition. And to be fair, “Dennis” looks a bit like Lemongrab.)

In summary, I would have to give Split a 4.5/5.

With that said, I hope you enjoyed this review, and be sure to stay tuned for Versailles!

Video Game Playlist

Happy Thursday Novas! Thank you for tuning in to today’s post. I want to apologize for the content slipping this week, but I am on vacation at the moment so getting around to blogging hasn’t been an easy task. Today’s post will be a look into music that I love to listen to while playing videos games!

It’s funny, I turn on music when I’m playing alone in games like Gears of War, Call of Duty or a sandbox game like Minecraft. Why, you say? Because music can help you focus, put you in a great mood and help you forget about your stresses. I like to consider myself a bit eclectic so the songs I will list here will span different genre’s. I encourage everyone to share some of your favorite songs to game to and I’ll add them to a spotify playlist for everyone to download.

The beginning: listening to music while playing video games started for me in the original Xbox days. If you have read my Evolution of a Gamer post, I talked about gaming starting with my brother Kenny and his journey into the new consoles. Well Kenny introduced me to games I probably would never have played, one of which was the Tony Hawk Pro Skater Games. I remember him first playing Pro Skater on his computer and her would have music paying in the background. When the game released for Xbox, Kenny would still have music playing through his computer and he pretty much put me on to music like Staind and Nickelback.

Once I had my own system, I started burning music on to the 360 to listen to at my leisure.  tony Here are some of my favorite songs in which I played during Tony Hawk Games:

  • This is How You Remind Me – Nickelback
  • Price to Play – Staind
  • Hero – Nickelback
  • Senorita – Justin Timberlake

Most of the songs I listened to were Alternative and Pop while playing Tony Hawk. I’m not sure if it was the beat, the lyrics or the feeling on the songs, but they seemed to mesh well when I was kicking flips or grinding on rails lol.

First Person Shooters – When I delved into the world of First Person Shooters, the music that I turned on changed. Gears of War and Call of Duty 4 were my first experiences with FPS games and before party chat, I would play alone with my mic muted and play music. Here:s a sample of my FPS Playlist:

  • Lose Yourself – Eminem
  • Forgot about Dre – Dr Dre & Eminem
  • Lollipop – Lil Wayne
  • Shots – Lil Jon

You can kind of see the difference in the music choices for each game. I wanted more upbeat or hardcore music when I shooting people’s faces off lol. I wanted to feel like I was watching an intense action movie and the playlist had to match.

Strategy or RPG Games: When I started playing games like Fable and Oblivion, music still played a huge role in gaming. When you’re playing games like this and you’re alone, you have to do quite a bit of farming to gain the resources you may want or need. This tideous bout of compleing the same quests, killing the same enemies or searching for the same item can get monotonous. How do you combat the endless farming? Music of course! Here’s a sample of my RPG or RTS playlist:

  • La La Land – Demi Lovato
  • Hey Daddy – Usher
  • Danza Kuduro -Don Omar
  • The Way – Ariana Grande

This final playlist features more pop songs than anything. I need to be energized and feel motivated to continue questing. Below is a sample of my current Video Game Playlist!

That’s a list of some of my favorite songs to play video games to, what are yours? Do you have a specific time that you listen to music when you are gaming? Are there any memories that you have specifically about gaming and listening to music? Share your thoughts! Let’s talk Video Game Playlists!

Pokemon Battledome: Who do you choose!

Happy Tuesday Novas! Today will be a discussion post on you guessed it, Pokemon! For today’s post I wanted to ask other gamers which 3 Pokemon would they take into battle. This can be from any generation. Personally, I would take Charmander, Combusken, and Dratini because they are my favorites. Battle wise, I could be countered easily as 2 of my choices are fire types (but that’s only if my opponent knows who I am using bwahahaha).

Let’s set the scene: You are summoned to a battle arena for a tournament, but the details are vague. The only requirement is for you to bring 3 Pokemon to battle with… WHO DO YOU CHOOSE and WHY?

Luna- Aside from my answer above, I would probably really bring Machop, Haunter and Combusken.  imageedit_2_2981487739  I feel as though, that’s a pretty good mix of characters and types to have with you in a blind battle and they are some of my favorites. Let’s check in with some of our friends to see who they are bringing to the rumble!

Mikey – My coworker Mikey prides himself on being a competitive Pokemon Player! He’s so crazy about it that he wanted more details on the rules and who he would face (type, tier level, etc). I again approached him with the description above on this post lol. After many changes he finally decided on 3…Here’s his response…

I would select Whimsacott, Slowbro and Megametagross. imageedit_4_3530078019  Whimsacott is the Lead setup against opponents and fastest taunter. Slowbro will be my defensive specialist tank that can take hits and output damage. Megametagross is my priority sweeper who hits hard and great has a finisher! 

Erick: My co-worker Erickkkkkk who is another self proclaimed Pokemon master, selected Chimchar, Espeon and Blastoise as his partners in crime. imageedit_6_8096274036

Chimchar because hes my personal favorite and I love him! Espeon because they are beautiful and one of the most powerful special attackers and Blastoise because… well because NOSTALGIA!!!!

Rare: My homie from PS4 chimed in with his top picks for a Pokemon Battle as well!

I’d choose Dragonite because he’s super strong, Gengar for the strats and Dewgong because he’s crazy strong, especially against dragon types. imageedit_8_2477493524

Nathan From Hurricane Thought Process: I would choose Cubone, Squirtle & Eggsecutor because they are my all time favorites! imageedit_10_5602307796

Tim from Geek Out SouthwestDusclops because darn good defense. Haxorus because he’s only bested by Rayquayza for attactk, but her has a nicer move pool. Volcarona for Speed, Quiver Dance and great offense. imageedit_12_3001041546

Chris from Overthinker Y Rapidash, Hitmontop and Wailord because there are my favorites! imageedit_14_2215176843

NekoJonez -Absol, Alakazam and Groudon because they are my favorites. imageedit_16_8565110385

Kevin from The Mental AtticI’m one for the classics so I would choose Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno. I love those birds! imageedit_18_7600937720

You know how you have your Notable or Honorable mentions when selecting your favorites? Yea, well that doesn’t apply for my friend Emily here! She has more of an Un-Notable mention because of her answer!

Emily- I would choose Eevee because, I mean it’s Eevee!

Luna – Ok great and who else?

Emily – You don’t need anyone else, it’s Eevee!

Luna – Sooo you can’t do that?

Mikey – Yeah Emily, that’s against the “Species Clause.”

Luna – Is that a thing?

Emily – I don’t care, I would take 3 Eevees.

Luna – They’re all normal types, you have no diversity.

Emily – I’d have a pocket full of stones and no matter who is summoned, I can evolve Eevee right on the spot!

Mikey – You can’t evolve during a match -_-

Luna – Plus you can only evolve like 3 Eevee types with stones. Do you know anything about Eevee?

Emily – I mean it’s Eevee. THEY’RE CUTE!

Mikey & Me – Okay Em! lol imageedit_20_3363362111

You can view the battle where Mikey played with some of our favorite Pokemon by clicking the link below! http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-613856839

Game of Thrones Ep: 4 Thoughts!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was another epic episode of one of my favorite binge watching series, Game of Thrones. Want to read our thoughts from last week, click here. Please be advised, that this is the official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert** Stop reading now if you have not watched the episode yet because this post will be more of a recap and discussion.

The episode starts off with Jamie, Bronn and the Tarlys looting High Garden after the battle at the end of last episode. Here we see Bronn take another secondary role as he is rewarded for his efforts and in classic Bronn fashion asking for more; a castle. bronn Bronn will play an important role later in the episode. This scene sets up the next scene with Cersei paying the Lannister’s debt back to the Iron Bank and surpassing her father in strategy, fear and intelligence.

The long awaited scene of Arya returning to Winterfell is not far behind. You can see how Arya is disconnected from the world as she is asking for characters that were killed off seasons ago like Sir Roderick and Maester Luwin. Because of this disconnect, the guards doubt her identity. The reunion of Arya and Sansa raises a few questions. Sansa is trying to gauge if Arya is serious about her List and Arya is trying to gauge what Sansa’s new ambition is. Both sisters reunite in the crypt at the memorial of their father Ned Stark. Arya is also reunited with Bran where a symbolic event occurs; Bran gives Arya the Valyrian Steel dagger. I know that this event is symbolic in some way, not only by Bran’s cryptic presentation of the dagger, but I’m not sure what this event is pointing towards.

Another important event is Jon showing Dany that the Whiterwalkers are real. He unveils his findings in the cave where they are set to harvest Dragonglass. The cave is marked with drawings from the Children of the Forest (no clue who they are but I’m sure it will be explained later). The whitewalkers are shown on the wall with the first men fighting together. I believe this is a set up for Dany and Jon starting to align.

Quotes:

I will fight for you, I will fight for the North… when you bend the knee! – Dany

My people will not follow another Southern lord – Jon

They chose you to lead them, they chose you to protect them. Isn’t their survival more important than your pride? -Dany

The enemy is real, it’s always been real. – Jon

Arya vs Brienne had me on the edge of my seat. You know that Brienne is a talented fighter and that Arya is amazingly dangerous. When Arya spotted Brienne in the courtyard and ask to train with her, it was almost too much for my heart to handle. You see Brienne hold back a bit at first until she is bested, then her true skill is unleashed. By the end you’re wondering who’s going to stop who! Arya’s face lights up when she is tested and you can see her alternate side of an assassin coming out. I do wonder what Sansa and Littlefinger were thinking during the battle as they watched from above?

There was the awkward encounter of Tyrion and Dany when the news is unveiled that, although High Garden has fallen, the Lannister army got away and took down another ally; Olenna. Jon Snow and Sir Davos look away as Tyrion is scolded and almost accused of not really wanting his family dead. Another great moment happens here where Dany asks Jon for his advice (that she doesn’t use). All of these scenes with Dany and Jon and their attraction to each other makes me think that there may be talks of them ruling together. Maybe as King and Queen… sure they’re related but they don’t know it and it’s not like GOT is shy about family relations lol.

Key moments in the Episode:

  • “We don’t have marriage in Naath so the term bastard doesn’t exist.” – Missandei to Jon
  • Jon taking Tyrion’s advice from last episode and asking around about why people follow Daenaerys.
  • The reunion of Jon and Theon
  • Olennas’ last words coming to fulfillment about Cersei being the downfall of Jaime?
  • Bronn’s role in the episode. His skill, his guts and vow to protect.
  • The closing battle of the Dothraki Army, Drogon, Dany and the Lannister army

What did you think of last night’s episode? What do you think will happen next week and what are your thoughts on what has happened so far? Let’s talk Game of Thrones!

Six Word Story Challenge: Poem

Happy Sunday Novas! I’ve found another blogging challenge and this one is for the 6 word stories! Here is my entry into this week’s post!

Her fire ignited his crimson spell.

Feel free to join the challenge over at the Sometime’s Steller Storyteller blog by clicking here. 

This post will be a short poem on the 6 word story that I have submitted.

Ember’s breathe, a volcanic eruption,

Brought on by his dark seduction,

Wildly flying to escape his gaze,

Knowing not his trap, his maze,

Trying her best not to consume,

The tempting lust in the room,

He cornered her before she could strike,

And tamed her beast before the night,

Merlin cast his spell so well,

It iced and smothered her mood to kill,

Blinding lights she could not see,

The reality of this fantasy,

Merlin loved the beast so wild,

Reluctant as though she were a child,

Ember found a way to love him back,

Saving her from her devious acts,

Now they fly hand in hand

The dragon and her magical man.

Have a great day!

Friendly Trends 1: Guilty Pleasures

Happy Sunday Novas! You know how you can hang around someone so much that you start picking up their habits and sometimes even their interests? That’s what I have noticed has been happening to me and my co-workers lately. Each week I will introduce the blog to this new segment called “Friendly Trends” that basically will catalog the trends that I have been “Put On” to by my friends. The inaugural post will feature my friends Selena and Erick and the Guilty Pleasures that they have introduced me to!

The Beginning: Selena and I were looking for a way to bond and have something that we could talk about (we have little in common).

The Trends: The trend that Selena has put me on to is the teen drama on YouTube. So let me set the scene: Selena is 21 and very young. She is constantly on her phone watching videos on YouTube and Instagram.

insta
Instagram Drama!

She has been following the drama of these teens fighting on Instagram and it slowly led into me being mildly entertained. I will say right now as a PSA that I DO NOT CONDONE the behavior and I haven’t went as far as to “Follow” their accounts, but I was introduced into this world that slowly transitioned into me watching people on YouTube.

 

Now I follow few new channels on YouTube that shows young adults vlogging and doing challenges. She has also put me onto beauty tutorials with makeup and natural hair that I watch more than the teen drama stuff now.

Erickkkkk Mi Corazon!

The Trend(s) – Erick is a hardcore advocate for just about anything it seems. Erick has put myself and others on to a number of things that we would otherwise not have bothered with. The 2 main “Put Ons” are Game of Thrones and Comics! Around January of this year Erick was pleading with me (who had never seen an episode) to download HBO Now and watch Game of Thrones. He was recommending GOT to me because I was consistently talking about or watching historical dramas. He figured it was right up my alley and I am so thankful that I listened!

giphy
The suspense is killing me!

 

 

Erick also put myself and Selena on to comics. I was always interested in reading comics but there was never a drive strong enough to make me start. That is until Erick. He started recommending comics that suit each of our personalities. When you find friends that really understand you, it is an indescribable feeling!

Those are the few trends that will start off this series. What items have you been “Put On” to by your friends? Let’s talk Friend’s Trends!
