American Horror Story Rewatch: Part 2

Just like that, I am done. I can now dip into Apocalypse with a well-rounded understanding of all the characters, and where they cross-over/feature in each season. It's so Stephen King! I have absolutely loved my AHS marathon (which didn't include Cult because that one is still so recent). Here are my thoughts: Freak Show Freak… Continue reading American Horror Story Rewatch: Part 2

Autumn Bucket List

I haven't really planned much for Autumn apart from my trip, which in itself is a pretty cool thing to cross off the bucket list. I've always wanted to visit Copenhagen, so I guess I'll start there. These are the things I'll be doing this Autumn, in no particular order. Copenhagen Tora and I have… Continue reading Autumn Bucket List
