Super Space Chick’s Weekly Round Up (#3)

Super Space Chick’s weekly round up is a blog series in which I’ll be chatting to you about what’s going on in my life, what I’ve been posting on YouTube and my blog, some favorite instagram photos of the week, and such.  So basically just general life happenings and feelings!  I looooooove writing book reviews but I also love reading more personal blog posts so I want to make an effort to share more of my full life here and not just my reading life.

We had a really quiet week and it was glorious! On Tuesday I got copies of the Sailor Moon R movie and the second season of Snow White with the Red Hair.  And I did some shopping (at Her Universe, Hot Topic & Loungefly) so I’m eagerly anticipating those packages which should be arriving soon! I also received The Melting Library’s Villains sampler for April and I love it so much more than I was expecting to (mainly because I’ve just been dying for the fictional confections sampler so I haven’t even thought about anything else).  My favorite candle in it is Amarantha who is one of the villains I love most.  Photos to come!  This week, my bosses also got me the most beautiful flowers and brought in Doughnut Plant which was a lovely surprise.  Other than that, I read some great books, watched A LOT of Sailor Moon R and OH YEAH WE GOT NYCC TICKETS NBD.  And I cut off more than half my hair.  Actually, storytime below!

On Thursday morning, I got a really exciting email re: NYCC.  It’s not a confirmed thing that I can share yet, but it will basically be a dream come true if it happens.  We had been hemming and hawing over whether to attend NYCC this year because of how overcrowded its gotten but after this email we had to buy at least one set of passes and once I fell into that waiting queue, the adrenaline was pumping and it felt like the race was on.  I was driving myself crazy reading the tweets of those who bought tickets within, 5, 10 and 15 minutes while I slowly watched the minutes tick by and the passes start popping up on eBay.  Some people were saying that Saturday tickets were already sold out so my stress level just amped up even further but an hour later when our time finally came, all four days had tickets available and we got them with no issue.  Speaking of stressful things we do for fandoms, I spent Friday going to not one, not two but THREE Target’s looking for an early copy of A Court of Wings and Ruin since everyone in the world seems to have already received theirs while I’m just waiting over and here and slowly dying.  At the third and final Target, I HAD A COPY OF A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN IN MY HANDS… and then it was taken away because they’re not allowed to sell it until May 2nd… even though they clearly are because I’ve seen so many other people with them (including my bff Cassie!).  So after that horrible, horrible night, I went home and drowned my sorrows in Ben & Jerry’s PB & Cookies non-dairy ice cream and more Sailor Moon.  I know it’s silly since at this point, I will have the book in two days but I just want it now, ya know?

Reading: I finished reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli which is just as amazing as her first book.  Cassie and I are getting ready to host our book club in about an hour for the book and I can’t wait to talk about it in depth with her!  I also finished reading I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo which is outlandish and adorable and the 8th volume of Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches which is a manga series I’ve really come to love. And lastly, I started my A Court of Mist and Fury re-read in anticipation of ACOWAR!

Watching: Pretty Little Liars– the second episode was HELLA problematic.  I did not appreciate the writers including a storyline where a girl falsely accuses someone of sexual harassment.  It was just done in such poor taste, especially with how uncomfortable victims already feel about reporting their cases.  Famous in Love continues to be adorable and I still think Nina is by far the worst and most manipulative character on the show and I’ve just loved every single minute of Sailor Moon R <3 <3 <3

I am back on schedule this week with three videos posted!!! WOOO!

  4. Your hair looks amaaaaaazing!! Does your head feel lighter haha? When I first chopped off my long hair that was the first thing I noticed – and how weird it felt in the shower! I definitely need to snag Sailor Moon R on blu-ray. I have not rewatched it since I was a teen and I definitely need to sit down with my daughter and introduce her to SM!
