Day 09

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include
a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I've been meaning to write up a New Year's resolution post, so I'm glad that this was today's challenge.

Goals for 2016 )

I could put more, but it's good to start small, isn't it? I will have my hands full with these goals already, and any additional goals could probably fit under the above categories. At least I know that many of these goals are common, so I won't be alone in trying to live a better life in 2016.

All I have done so far is watch a few episodes of my shows and read some things here and there. It's still the beginning of my break, so I still have time to take care of other things. Honestly, I don't feel very motivated to do much else, though. I really should go out today because I have been at home pretty much since my semester ended, but the weather is hardly enticing.

This morning, I've been trying to write a bit. I rarely ever write reviews of the shows that I'm watching, but I thought I'd give it a shot this time even though these episodes are probably only new to me. I'm so behind~ So here are two reviews of three old episodes from Doctor Who season three with cuts for some spoilers.

"42" - Spoilers )

"Human Nature"/"The Family of Blood" - Spoilers )

I meant to write more, but I'm just not feeling it right now. I have already watched "Blink" with audio description and hope to finish up season three before the year is done. I also watched the first three episodes of season two of Penny Dreadful, so I'll get to talking about those soon, I hope. Perhaps I'll go out and actually do something with other humans today. In the future, I should probably write the reviews right after each episode or stop to write things during the episodes.

Well, I've been bad about posting again... Blame it on stress and depression. It's not that I haven't been productive at all in the last month, but I've withdrawn into a sad little ball of gloom quite a lot. This means I haven't made much progress with my life. I've barely talked with anyone, and I worry that I've let my friends down by withdrawing. Even though my life has improved by leaps and bounds over the last few years, it still needs a lot of work to get it where I want it to be.

Details about my crummy mental health at the moment )

On a happier note, I have been re-watching the eighth season of Doctor Who with audio description this time. :D I was able to enjoy the season well enough without it, but the descriptions make it much easier to get all the little jokes and bits of action. I've re-watched only the first two episodes, but I have the rest waiting for me. I'm enjoying it a lot more than I did the first time around. I'm so glad that I have discoveed the joys of audio description because it makes my TV watching life much easier.

Okay, so... I wandered away from this entry for a couple of days. XD Things are indeed looking up. I've now watched up to episode five of season eight of Doctor Who. Currently, I'm in the middle of episode six. I'd like to get back to that soon, but I've been all over the place in the last few days. Turns out my concerns about letting my friend down were not true. She's just as lost as I am or maybe more. The fear of intimacy still stands, though.

In addition to the re-watch of season eight of new Who, I just started watching the classic series as well. 8D That's a whole new world of fun to look forward to. I stayed up late last night researching the classic series and looking for clips. This morning, I watched all four episodes of "The Aztecs" story and enjoyed myself very much. Of course, it did not have any audio description on Netflix, but I can look into that more later. I enjoyed it, nonetheless. It's fun to be diving in to something so iconic and classic.

The eighth season/series (I will never get used to these British terms) of Doctor Who is almost over, and I have become a good and proper little Whovian over the past few months in the process. :D As far as I can tell, the current season is fantastic. I know that a lot of people are complaining about Clara's prominence and having difficulty adjusting to the new Doctor, but I love them both. Maybe this is an advantage of being new to Who? *shrugs* Anyway, I'm having a great time, too. It's so great to be getting back into fandom and looking forward to a new show on Saturdays again. I still need to catch up on the earlier seasons, though. I'm almost done with season two.

The main reason for this post is to gush about Doctor Who, but... eh, I'm getting tired. I'll just leave you with this thought: evil!Clara is awesome. I saw it coming, and I can't wait! I also want to watch the biopic about Dylan Thomas this week.
