On Freaking Out, Supernatural and TFiOS Tearfest + links

I. Go on and look into my archives. Look at last summer. The time has come. [….dramatic music with high piano notes.] This year, being all legal and with a domain, I am actually planning to stick around, but I’m not off to a great start. I have a reason. I have a really fucking good reason. In one week, I’ll be boarding a plane that will take me away from my life in Norway. I haven’t been able to sleep for two weeks; I just start panicking and find myself, at 3am, eating chocolate, watching Supernatural and pausing to either see if it’s light outside yet or to explore an idea I’ve had (some of them: training sledge dogs in Alaska, volunteering in Chad, studying in Sweden, waitressing in Cambodia). I’m not in a good place mentally, but I’m pretty sure no exchange student is, waiting for their life to be smashed into pieces. Thing is, I have no idea where these pieces are. Buried somewhere in the sea between my two countries, I guess.

II. There will be no 20 things I love about post tomorrow, as I have been too busy to write anything. However, I might do next week’s one on Supernatural. See, I decided that if I’m not sleeping anyways, I could catch up with that show, as I stopped watching halfway. The finale was really good. And Mette’s tweets have made me hungry for a rewatch. So I’ll be rewatching SPN in July and I loved the first five or six seasons. (Oh, and reviews, I guess — cinema is basically free in Estonia, so I’ll be hidden away there as often as possible.)

III. ~Next review will be on The Fault in Our Stars. I went to see it and cried through most of it, but it wasn’t the film. It was the book, coming to life. John Green is a very good writer, and I remembered pieces of his writing as I heard the dialogue and saw some details. Ansel Elgort really surprised me, in a good way, and Woodley was amazing. I’m going to have to start standing up for her — I’ve loved her in everything she’s been in, no matter the dumb things she does.

IV. Finally, I’d like to take a moment to say a big thank you to the people who haven’t forgotten about me as I’ve been absent this past week, from both this blog and yours. I promise I’ll get back to all of you as soon as I can, but I really have to prioritise the last days with my family and friends in Norway. Thank you all so much for making this community be so great! (I don’t doubt that you guys will forgive me. If you won’t, let me know and I’ll send you a chocolate puppy or something.)

+ pretty sure Stannis wasn’t the only one who came

+ flashback movie challenge with one of the funniest films from your very childhood! (I hope…)
+ Bergy cherry
+ remember perfectly-smitten Joaquin Phoenix?
+ can you believe I haven’t seen this and am yet to be…..terminated?
+ great post, but also naked boobs!

  1. Thank you for the link! 🙂 I hope you enjoy your last few days in Norway! I’m looking forward to your next 20 Things I Love post!

  2. I’m sure everything will be fine! *hugs*

    Oh that’s a very accurate name for the link to my post :D:D:D

  3. Good luck in your future adventures. As Sati said yes everything will be fine, sometimes life is scary, but when you look back you will think why I was even nervous about this whole thing. 🙂

    • I’m sure you’re right, but future is…scary. I didn’t know I’d become so insecure about it all. Heeeh. Thank you for the kind words!

      • Of course! We have all been there. I spent many years in my 20’s crying and freaking out over stuff and now I look back (I’m 34) and think what in the world was I thinking. 🙂 Had this or that not happened, I wouldn’t be where I am now or I wouldn’t have met my husband. So hey you never know what is out there and what the future has in store for you. I am sure all good wonderful things!

  4. Thank you very much, for the glorious linkage. I appreciate it ever so much.

    As for your current state of affairs…you know you’re going to be fine, right? I mean, when I was younger I used to think all kinds of shit was the end of the world…and, well, look at me now.

    Okay, fine. Bad example. But you? You’ll make it. And even if you don’t….um….I still get a chocolate puppy, right?

    • No thanks needed, my gentle soldier!

      I hope I grow up to be you. Like, I hope I just turn into a man at one point. But honestly, thank you! I’ll get back to you on that chocolate puppy thing…

  5. Ohhooo.. kas koos domeni nimega midagi muud ka soetasid endale? MA olen korduvalt mõelnud seda soetada aga.. iga kord mõtlen, et ma ei tea, kas see on seda väärt 😀

  6. How could we ever forget about you Elina? 🙂

    Its sad that you’re leaving Norway, ypou seemed to love it

  7. You can do it Elina! Life can be scary but it’s the way we respond to the scariness that matters the most. I have no doubt that whatever you end up doing or wherever you end up going, you’ll be able to face any challenges that pop up. Us film bloggers are made of tough stuff!

    And thank you for the link! 🙂

    • Ah, thank you, Anna! I really do feel inspired by film bloggers, because all of you are impressive people even beyond the blogging. 🙂

  8. I’m fairly new to your blog but from what I’ve read, you’re such a good writer that I have no doubt you’ll make it through all this just fine.
    Good luck with your future endeavors.

  9. I hope your time in Norway is going swell, and totally looking forward to your review of TFIOS. 🙂

  10. Glad to hear Woodley is great in TFIOS! She’s the only reason I’ll be watching it.

Tell me, tell me, TELL ME
