• Ich Liebe Deutschland (and all things German)!

    Yay! My first post for LindseyTinsey! 😀 Finally! Allow me to introduce myself: Hi. I’m Alaric. I’m 25 (but not for very much longer – Rocky Horror reference FTW). I’m a scientist (or at least, that’s what I pretend to be most days) and a huge Harry Potter nerd (Potterhead, if you will). I’ve known Lindsey for 7 years, and through our mutual love of Harry Potter, amongst other fandoms, and Lady Gaga (Yaasss Kween!), we’ve become great friends (queue: emotional music and staring vacantly into the distance). However, I digress – this post is not about our life-story… Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m, by and large, in love…

  • Goodbye Hunger Games

      I read the Hunger Games series maybe 2 years over a period of 2 weeks. I remember feeling so down and dark after finishing. It’s quite a dark, grim, series so it’s to be expected. The end of the war has lots of death and maybe one twist but overall the ending in anticlimactic. That is not a bad thing. The end is still satisfying for me. I really enjoyed the movie adaptations as well. This past weekend I watched Mockingjay Part 2 at The Scene at the V&A Waterfront my sister and my friend Alaric. It was true to the book and a great adaptation. A quick look…
