A Collection Part 52

I’ve never said this to anyone, but sometimes I look through these posts and try to find the story that it’s telling. It seems like I’m making it up as I go. I wouldn’t consider myself a great writer by any means. Call it Imposter Syndrome or whatever, but I have this blog despite all of that. If I get better over time, sure, I would consider that a win! Since I’m not the writer I thought I’d always be, I’ve wondered if people can tell what I’m trying to say or what I’m thinking by the pictures I choose to highlight. This is something I’ve been wanting to ask Veronica for a long time. I like to think that she can tell my mood or my feeling, but am I consistent? Do I change year to year or by months based on the photos?

Does posting one photo lead me to want to post the photo afterwards? What if one photo had led me to choose the next photo differently?

For the first time ever, this collection post only has photos from one source.

Awkwafina Is Getting Her Own Show

2018 was the year for Awkwafina after starring in Crazy Rich Asians and Ocean’s 8. She is still my favorite part about Crazy Rich Asians and I tell everyone that. Now, the young Asian-American actress is getting her own show on Comedy Central in which she’ll star in, write for, and produce. The 10-episode scripted series is a play on her own life – a 20 something living in Queens with her family.

“I’ve been watching Comedy Central since I was old enough to hold a remote, and so many of their shows have defined who I am today,” said Awkwafina about the show. “I am so honored to be given their platform to tell the story of an Asian American girl against the backdrop of the city I was raised.”

No premiere date has been slated yet for the series, but we can’t wait to hear more!

To All The Guests I’ve Loved Before w/ Noah Centineo

It has been months and we’re still not done with being obsessed with this movie. The funny part of this is that if you’ve ever followed Noah on Instagram, you’d discover that he’s a complete weirdo. I’m assuming that this is probably his most authentic self and while I find it endearing, we like to pretend he’s just Peter Kavinsky 24/7

MTV Spring Break Will Return In 2019

When my parents granted our family home with cable, I knew my life would be changed forever once I had MTV. It was the channel that would essentially show me how my life was going to look as I grew up. I remember being in 8th grade and telling my history teacher that I aspired to be on Real World. Back then, it wasn’t actually the shitty show it became eight years ago. The cast members had jobs and they were tackling real life cultural issues. Shout out to the Seattle and San Diego season.

Even though I knew I’d have to lie to my parents if I wanted to go, Spring Break was the place I had to go. But let’s be real, that’s no place for a pre-teenager. Naturally, we tried to grow up way faster than we should have. I shared the news of Spring Break returning to the guys today and the first thing I asked was, “Are we too old for this?” The answer is yes. I didn’t think it would be possible, but yes, you can outgrow television shows and the culture that surrounds them.

The network announced today that it would be rebooting this program which will be the cause of all FOMO I’m sure. The next season of Spring Break will take place at the Grand Oasis Hotel in Cancun Mexico from March 19-21st. Has it always been this short? Probably, but MTV stretched this out for weeks in repeats! Here’s what you can expect: themed specials like before, celebrity guest appearances and of course everyone’s favorite – musical performances. Get ready to feel incredibly old watching this program this upcoming season.

Will this crash and burn like the revival of TRL or will this actually thrive? Guess we’ll know soon enough!

Weekend Update: Pete Davidson

Pete Davidson is having a year, isn’t he? It’s amazing how every week he either a) manages to say something wrong or b) something unfortunate kind of happens to him. We will always be team Ari forever, but I do like seeing someone who has done wrong get in front of the camera and apologize.

Troye Sivan Thirst Tweets

Made me blush. People say the funniest things on the internet that they would never say in real life. This stuff kills me and I love it. We put celebrities on such a pedestal, but I at least love that he can roll with this no matter how weird these are.

If You Need A Laugh…Riverdale Edition

I’ll never forget the day I discovered Riverdale on Netflix and finished the whole season in one weekend. It’s weird to say I grew up with Dylan and Cole Sprouse because of them in Big Daddy or The Suite Life… because they are actually younger than me. I really enjoy Cole in Riverdale though and I shipped him and Lili Reinhart almost immediately.
