GDR Book Club: The Vampire Lestat

This was a gift given to me by a friend. I haven't had a chance to read it until about January.

Anne Rice has a way with imagery and characterisation that makes me melt. Since The Vampire Lestat is a first-person account, it's incredibly intimate. That works to the book's credit as it's very easy to get immersed. I was thrown into Lestat's life right along side him. I shook my head; I disapproved. I was emotionally swayed, and most of all, I was taken away by Lestat's way of speech. My good friends, I have fallen in love with Lestat de Lioncourt. (Even while writing this, I realised that my full name would sound amazing with 'de Lioncourt' at the very end, hoho!)

Check In: Lenovo A820C+ Smartphone

Remember this thing? Aah, it was so shiny and new before. I reviewed it in a previous post (where I mistakenly labeled it as a A850C+). As stated then, I bought mine from Alibaba.

Let's say that I have a long, long history with this phone for the short time that I've had it. I was so, so excited to buy it and to finally have it. I can acknowledge that I have a chronic problem with buying my technology aesthetically. After doing all of the research, I will harshly evaluate whether or not it will fit into my desired look. I know. It's a pain. It really worked against me this time.

Prince Not-So-Charming, Galavant

Aaaaah— What a charming little show. It's really hard for me to do a review about Galavant. I know just that it's one of my favourite shows right now.

One of my roommates, M, was the one who told me about this show. She was on YouTube browsing around and came across some of Galavant's first season clips. She told me about it, and we looked it up together. The first season is available on their YouTube, but each episode is $2.99. Considering the first season is only eight episodes, that's actually not bad at all.

The Macbook Struggle

My Mac was given to me as a hand me down during my school days. Fun fact: it was originally won at a work raffle! I actually used to be a Windows user until about 2010, when my computer malfunctioned and died completely. My Windows was a Vista, and it would have been really expensive to replace it.

I've always enjoyed Macs though, since I was in middle school. My school had the interesting predicament of only having updated computers in their library. Every other system was behind or nearly outdated as a whole. A lot of people complained about the difficulty, but I was always interested. When this MBP was given to me, I was pretty excited (especially since it was already loaded with stuff).

Let's LVLUP!

Happy March 1st! Guess who's jumping back into the fray. And with music at that. It's been a while since I've listened to pop music, especially in English. So let me just say that I was incredibly taken aback when I listened to this group. Now that I've revealed that, let's talk about LVLUP.

I ran across this group because I was blog hopping. Turns out, a blogger is in this group, whoa! I decided to give their video Beautiful a listen, and it's really… Well, let's just say that the title is appropriate.
