Well folks, I think it’s about time that I share my first ever “favorites” post. Some people do this by the month, but seeing as it’s the end of the year, I’m just lumping it all together in a “favorites of the year” post. I’ve watched quite a few new shows and movies, read some interesting books, bought a few really great songs… eh, you get my point. So, let’s take a look at what I personally love the most of them all.
Seriously, I’m Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres
While I am actually, technically still reading this book, I know already that it’s my favorite because it is a book that I am smiling, and laughing, the entire time I sit to read it. Ellen has a great way of really talking to the readers of the book making it as if you are sitting there with her listening to her talk.
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Yes, yes, I know. It’s an animated movie, but you know what? It’s adorable! And even though there was obviously a first to this movie, I saw this one first. See, my best friend and I were going to see some other movie, then decided on seeing this despite the fact I had never seen the first one. I didn’t think I’d like it, but boy was I wrong! It didn’t take me long to get around to seeing the first one.
The Heart Wants What It Wants – Selena Gomez
After recently, as in a week ago, listening to this song, I fell in love with it. While Selena Gomez is not my top favorite artist, I do like quite a few of her songs and this is the best one I’ve heard from her in a while.
I binge watched this show back in January-February when it became available on Netflix and… yeah. Even though that is the last show I ever thought I’d watch, I really enjoyed the show (and closed my eyes for the really gross parts).
Much like with Dexter, this is a show I didn’t think I’d really like, but I actually really ended up loving it. After season 2 was released online on Crackle this past August, I took a day, or two, to watch the new episodes and now I’m anxiously awaiting season 3 to come.
Thank you Thomas Frank from College Info Geek for having this app up on your “essentials” list. This app literally saved my life when it came to taking notes this past semester as it was easy to switch between taking them on my laptop and tablet. It also made for a quick way to review my notes one last time before taking the test on my iPhone.
All I have to say is, “How have I not watched her videos before this year?” She is very entertaining on YouTube and the best part is that the majority of her content is unscripted and I personally love it. I found out about her channel when watching a documentary about YouTubers called Please Subscribe.
Needless to say, I relate to this blog and everything that the writer posts. Though I suppose being in her early twenties herself, I would be able to relate to many of her posts. It’s just refreshing because a lot of the blogs I follow are more directed into a specific niche such as cooking and… well, mostly cooking (though I personally cannot cook).
So those are my favorites of 2014. Needless to say I am ready for the new year and what it has in store for us!
