All the Big Events During the Holiday Season

This holiday season will probably be the best time of the year for me because of all the things I'm looking forward to. Most of it has to do with relatively (okay very) nerdy things, such as movies, television series release dates, conventions, etc...yet I'm also just looking forward to the fact that it's around holiday time and that I'm almost finished with my first semester with barely any issues, if any at all. I'm looking forward to break.

When I do get free time, a lot of it is spent on being excited about the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary movie, The Day of the Doctor.  You can see the exciting trailers for The Day of the Doctor here and here. There were at least four doctors in this one episode (Tennant, Smith, Hurt, Capaldi). It's a really big deal (at least in my opinion) especially with it showing in theaters for the first time. I could barely get tickets because most were sold out. In the end, I had to sit in the second row from the screen in the Century City AMC. But still, the movie was great.

Before that, I went to a Supernatural Convention, which was my very first TV series specific nerd fan convention. It was as amazing as everyone insisted it was going to be. I made fan buttons and gave one to Misha Collins. I had a photo op with him too. By the way, I met Osric Chau, the Asian American actor who has appeared on Supernatural this season. He was so cool and funny, and extremely nice to chat with me and my friend. I got his autograph too.

The Hunger Game (Catching Fire) started, and The Hobbit, Part 2, and  BBC's Sherlock season 3 will be starting soon.  "Truly, the tales and songs fall utterly short of your enormity, oh Smaug the stupendous," says Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer. That basically got me hooked, and after seeing the first movie I want to see the second one with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, both which are some of my favorite actors. (If I haven't mentioned already.)

I saw Thor: The Dark World the other day with my mom as well. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) was personally my favorite character, and perhaps one of the most intelligent in comparison to the other characters.

I've been also pretty hyped up because of Bakuman (which my sister recommended a while ago in one of our blogs, yet I've just started).
Other mangas and animes I've been reading/watching include, Adventure Time on Cartoon Network,  (I know some of the artists who are doing the animation there!), the debut of the new Cartoon Network show (which is reallllyyyy cute looking) Steven UniverseAttack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin...which is personally one of my favorites, yet my mom disagrees), and hearing more about Bryan Lee O'Malley's secretive Seconds comic he's working on. (Author of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World)

A lot of these events is to take my mind off of highschool and art. It seems to be working since it seems to be all I can think and talk about as the year comes to an end.


  1. Update! I went to see Hunger Games: Catching Fire last night. It was awesome!

  2. Update 2! I went to see The Hobbit with my dad and my friend Josee last weekend. It was so good. I made a gif of Smaug and Bilbo Baggins.
