How to Overcome Loss With Only Your Fists, a Butler, and Billions of Dollars: The Bruce Wayne Story

Meet Bruce Wayne: industrialist, billionaire owner of Wayne Enterprises, philanthropist, Gotham’s favorite son, playboy, orphan. His success is a heartwarming example of American enterprise and ingenuity. It’s the stuff of folklore, really—a life we can all look to and feel inspired.

This is what I imagine most people picture when they think of Bruce Wayne. I mean, just look at how handsome and charming he is. He’s someone who overcomes a traumatic childhood and forgoes his own social advantages to fix the problems he sees in his own city. Surely, this character should be inspiring, right?

What’s New With Me

Life has been a little chaotic for me. I've been wanting to make more blog entries but I've been holding off and have been focusing on school right now. I need to survive the last two and a half weeks until graduation. It doesn't sound like a long time but it seriously feels like it's taking an eternity! Where is a Tardis when you need one? whatsnewghWell, I'd rather fast forward to the day AFTER graduation; I already have a set plan of what I want to do on my first day being graduated... This will probably not sound amazing to anyone but I'm waiting to do this... Lately, I tend to get only 4 hours a sleep at night (max) because I've gain a lot of anxiety and stress from my school projects and work, so I plan on sleeping in as long as I want! To add to sleeping in, I plan on ordering a pizza and having my laptop ready for Netflixing all that day and playing all the PC games I want. I'll even throw in some comic book reading since I haven't done that in a long time too! That sounds amazing to me; A full day of relaxation.

Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them – Poll

Basically, every single Harry Potter fan has been hyperventilating, squealing with excitement, and worshiping our Goddess 'Mrs. JK Rowling' due to the announcement of her book "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them" hitting the big screens! (... Or at least I have?)
Words from our Goddess, J.K Rowling: “Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” said Rowling. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.” “It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of ‘Fantastic Beasts,’ realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood. As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros. I particularly want to thank Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros. for his support in this project, which would not have happened without him. I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it.”
How do you feel about the news? I can't wait to see the production begin! :)

Breaking Pinkman

Today my friends and I caught up with the latest episodes of Breaking Bad.

I can't get enough of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul)! From the moment I started watching Breaking Bad, Jesse has always been my favorite character in the show. I'll admit, Walter has his 'badass' moments, but he is a little too extreme. And by extreme I mean, cold blooded killer who will do anything for his family (and he really has done it all...)!

**If you haven't watched Breaking Bad, it might not be ideal to continue reading on! Spoilers!**

It breaks my heart to see Jesse losing it; And from the last episode that just aired, "Rabid Dog" [Season 5, episode 12], the turning point of actually hating Mr. White pains me... Because Mr. White truely does care for him and Jesse has completely lost it. He's paranoid, angry, and completely lost with himself. I can see how he feels that Mr. White ruined his life - Mr. White keeps feeding him with so many manipulating lies just to keep Jesse in his life. But in the end, we all know that Mr. White only cares about himself and he will do whatever it takes for him and his family to come first than anyone else. I wish Sunday would come sooner. Jesse threatening Mr. White in the last episode was just golden. I wouldn't have thought their relationship together would ever come to that point!

To keep myself at ease until Sunday, here are some awesome gifs I found of Jesse.

01. Jesse Pinkman's famous "Yeah, science!" quote which has now been turned to a very popular internet meme.

02. A turning point for Jesse after he gets beaten up.

Netflix Shows You Should Be Watching

Here are some recommendations of TV shows that I found worth watching and highly recommend. You can find both of these shows on Netflix (which is great because all the seasons are available to watch!)

Breaking Bad

Yes, it has been trending on social media networks for a good while now til TODAY since the second half of season 5 premiered. Why do I recommend this show? Well, let me start of by quoting the Netflix description & a video that elaborates the show/but has spoilers.
"A high school chemistry teacher dying of cancer teams with a former student to manufacture and sell crystal meth to secure his family's future." - Netflix
If you want a better elaboration and you're not afraid of spoilers, watch the video below to get a FULL recap within the seasons!

Orange Is The New Black

A friend and I were skeptical about the show but we heard a lot of great things about it, so we decided to give it a try. Seriously, a minute into the show and it's already getting 'down to business'. To sum of the show in a few words, here is how I would put it: Lesbians. Affairs. Lying and Cheating. More lesbians. Alex Vause. Boobs. Crazy bitches. Lots of feelings.
"Piper must trade her comfortable New York life for an orange prison jumpsuit when her decade-old relationship with a drug runner catches up with her." - Netflix
It is actually based on a book by Piper Kerman, which is based on her experience when she was incarcerated. I haven't read the book but I plan on reading it! They are currently filming season 2 which will be released in 2014! So if you haven't seen this show you have PLENTY of time to catch up! (It's only 13 episodes and I KNOW you will finish it within a few days span - Cause I totally did.) I really hope you guys check these shows out - Happy Netflixing!

‘Peter Capaldi’ is our 12th Doctor!


So yesterday they announced that Peter Capaldi will be the new star of BBC sci-fi series 'Doctor Who'. I'm not completely excited nor completely disappointed. I feel that Capaldi will have 'some big shoes to fill' and hopefully will do a great enough role to capture my heart.

I'm always saying this, but David Tennant will always be MY doctor. I know he has captured many other hearts and I have high hope Capaldi will do a fantastic job to have him in a special place in my heart.

Matt Smith, you did a terrific job and it will be hard to see you regenerate into a new doctor - but I'm really excited to move forward and continue on with season 8!

How are you guys feeling about the new doctor?

"Doctor Who" returns for its 50th anniversary special on Saturday, November 23 on BBC America.
