July 2017 Wrap-Up

Since I’ve read all of one book during the month of July, I am going to do a little book haul instead of a reading wrap-up. It just makes more sense to me, because then I at least have three books to show.

  • Love Her Wild by Atticus
    LOVED this one. I am just really into poetry lately.
  • Because You Love to Hate Me edited by Ameriie
    A collaborative book written by some great authors and booktubers about VILLAINS! I only read the first short story and it was already disturbing. I like it!
  • Almost Adulting by Arden Rose
    Arden and her boyfriend are some of the very few youtubers outside the bookish community that I watch and the title of the book just intrigued me. It’s non-fiction and since adulting has been a bit challenging lately, I just thought, why not?

Love Her Wild: Poems   Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy   Almost Adulting: All You Need to Know to Get It Together (Sort Of)

Can you believe that I’ve been in Canada for 2.5 months already? It feels like just a couple weeks to me, but time keeps flying by and a lot has happened. I’ve been visiting sets, I’ve made new friends and generally started to really feel at home here. Of course, there were some downs as well. I won’t go into detail, but there were things that made me angry and frustrated, some things that made me feel lonely and isolated. It’s only normal to go through these phases, but I’d prefer to focus on the positives for now!

I can definitely see how the novelty of having film sets everywhere around town might wear off after a while, but I have literally nothing to do and nowhere to be at any given time. I never get annoyed if a side alley is closed because of filming, I embrace these situations and some of my fondest memories from the past month have been on set.
I am not exactly sure I would like to work on set full time, however, I DO love to hang out there. I used to love to do that back in Vienna s well. Some of the shows I’ve visited are The Flash, Supergirl, Riverdale and Travelers. Although I have no photo proof, I think my favorite set so far was the one for Travelers. We really bonded with the crew on that one and had a lot of fun. We even made it into one of the shots and I hope that someone in post messes up and I end in the final epsiode (which is unlikely). I do have photo proof for others though, namely me meeting Keiynan Lonsdale (Kid Flash and Bram on the upcoming Simon vs. movie), Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima (aka Sanvers on Supergirl). For the latter, I even got caught by a random photographer working for a BC based website talking about current filming in Vancouver. Those pictures got around on Twitter and Tumblr and I was so shocked. I never expected it, but some of my friends wanted to start a rumor that I would be their new co-star and I am ALL for that! Something like them adopting me and me coming over for a visit from college? I’d be in without a doubt.
