The Twelfth Doctor

Today, the 12th Doctor was announced on the BBC. Peter Capaldi.
I saw a short interview with him and he seems pleasant enough. It sounds so silly but I am so nervous to have a new Doctor. I know I have been through three so this shouldn’t be a big deal but it is. It always is. When Chris left I was sad, when David left I was devastated and when I think of Matt leaving my heart aches. At the same time I have loved all of the replacements. Of course, it helped that I had Punk’s reassurance that I would like the new one. This time I don’t have that because I am all caught up with Punk and so we’ll be watching Peter for the first time together.
Here is the thing. This show is a huge part of my life right now (which I get also sounds silly) but I love it. It is my number one favorite show of all times. This is a big deal because I love so many television shows.
Anyway, I have certain expectations for what the Doctor should be and is … and I’m scared of being let down. I think many people feel this way. No pressure for the new guy. Ha.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see how Peter portrays the Doctor. The thing is they are all a little different and the same. Well, break a leg Peter and don’t mess up my show. Please. 🙂 For the records, I have high hopes for him.

The epiphany I had with my two favorite tv shows and my love life …

So, my two favorite shows in life are The Vampire Diaries and Doctor Who. I am pretty sure everyone knows this about me and if they don’t … they don’t know me very well. Anyway, I had this epiphany like the titles suggests concerning my love life and my two favorite shows.
Now, please note that I am talking of the shows as a whole and I am not talking about the men in the shows. This isn’t a Damon vs. The Doctor thing. This is about what each of the shows are and how they effect me.
I feel like these two shows in many ways represent the kind of guy I fall for on a regular basis and the kind of guy that I will actually end up marrying. Now just go with me on this …
The Vampire Diaries is the kind of guy I fall for all the time. There is the attraction, the passion, the clever, witty, charming lines. There is adventure, risks, the fighting for something, etc. And there are these moments in the show that make me so so happy. But other times I get so frustrated every episode with the characters because I adore them so much but they just keep doing stupid things that screw up their relationships. And things can be so soap opera-ish like and I just want to throw something at the tv screen. And let’s be honest this is the kind of guy I typically fall for. The not super active Mormon, but he’s charming and clever, and I am so very attracted to him. And he talks about exciting things and we have good conversation and I have these moments of just feeling like the happiest girl alive and then … I get so frustrated. And he does things that makes me unhappy. And I don’t know what is going on and I just want to throw something. I fall for guys that I adore but aren’t really good for me. (Please note that I am not saying Vampire Diaries isn’t good for me. Ha ha) But more like the people in the show keep having these unhealthy relationships.
And I think this is my problem. I am so drawn to these guys … that are delightful in so many ways but … they aren’t what I really want/need.
They aren’t Doctor Who. Doctor Who is nerdy, charming, so nerdy and good, and I don’t get frustrated. I mean I cry in episodes but it’s not out of frustration it’s because I’ve lost someone I have grown to just adore. The main characters are changing but the change is never bad. IT is full of adventure and it makes me think and laugh. Oh it totally makes me laugh all the time. And it’s clean and good and I watch it with my parents.
I want a guy like that. Someone that is good, funny, attractive, nerdy, out to save the world, progressing, adventurous, changing in good ways, intelligent, willing to try new things, has an appreciation for people, never walking away when there is a problem … This is the kind of man I need.
Vampire Diaries Man is intriguing but makes me want to scream.
Doctor Who Man is what I am waiting for.
I love them both but let’s be honest … I need to marry the Doctor Who guy. If this means I should actually marry Matt Smith I am totally cool with that. Whatevs.

I’m Annoyed

The amount of people in my age group 25-35 with no ambition is unbelievably irritating. What happened to dreams? And motivation? And wanting something out of life? I just seriously want to scream every time I ask someone what they want to do and they respond with “I don’t know, something I don’t have to work very hard at.” What the crap kind of answer is that? What happened to aspirations. Why are people not into work? I am seriously peeved right now. Mainly because every time I get set up with guys closer to my age they all seem to be lacking any sort of ambition. And the guys I keep telling myself it won’t work with because they are doofuses … they have ambition. They have goals and dream jobs. And I just am so angry at the fetching world. And I get that maybe it is the area I am in. I just want someone with balance. I don’t want someone who does nothing but work but I also don’t want someone who has no desire and no drive. AHHHHHHHHH!
I think it has been decided. I need a fictitious man that does not exist or is already married. Congratulations to me.
Wow this sounds super pessimistic of me. I don’t mean to sound pessimistic. I’m simply annoyed. And I just really don’t have a lot of hope in reality.

Esmeralda … my new favorite Disney Princess Heroine

For as long as I can remember Belle, from Beauty and the Beast has been my favorite Disney “Princess” and as I continue in this post please do not think that my love for her has diminished because it hasn’t at all. I have just come to the realization that I love Esmeralda from the Hunchback of Notre Dame more. I remember loving the Hunchback of Notre Dame when I was a little girl. I also remembering it being very controversial because of how sickening Frollo was. A lot of people were upset with the film, including some of my relatives because he was very open with his lust. I think this is maybe why Esmeralda has not been as popular/ inducted into the Disney “Princess World” as I think she should be. I have just rewatched the Hunchback of Notre Dame and I feel like the movie is brilliant. It teaches so many important lessons in a realistic way … well as realistic as Disney can. It brings up issues like lust, prejudice, emotional abuse, accepting others who are different, having a positive self-image, showing kindness, letting God be a part of your life … I could go on. Seriously, I could just go on and on about the brilliant messages taught in this movie. But I think the best part of the movie is Esmeralda.
Esmeralda is a strong, confident woman. She has a fantastic self image, she is kind, she is witty, she can fight back, she is willing to stand up for what is right, she turns to God in her despair, and she treats everyone as an equal. She is smart. And it is clear that people love her. Frollo is burning up Paris to get her and still people will not turn her in. She is respected. She also thinks of others and not just herself. The woman has every quality of a strong woman. I also love her because she still needs help. She can’t do everything alone. She needs people. I don’t know … I just love her.
I also love her relationship with Quasi and Pheobus. Esmeralda and Phoebus are so great together. I love their witty banter. I love that her strength turns Phoebus on. And I love his goodness. I love that they are two individuals that come together rather than it being a thing where they just aren’t complete until they are together. It’s like their completeness makes something fantastic. IF that even makes sense. And I feel like Esmeralda sincerely thinks of Quasi as a good friend. That may suck for Quasi but she is there for him. She really is. And I like that Pheobus and Quasi clearly become friends at the end too. Phoebus is also so cool when it comes to the Quasi situation … he can tell the boy loves her and he never rubs it in Quasi’s face that he has the girl.
One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Quasi has saved Esmeralda from the flames and he is holding her on the cathedral roof and he yells sanctuary. It literally brings me to tears. Maybe because it shows that the innocent and the good need sanctuary. We all do. Sometimes we need to get away from the world and just be in a place dedicated to God. Not only that but it is such a symbol of God being a protection.

I also love the song “Out There” that is sung from Quasimodo. How he sees the world … I think we forget do often to see how beautiful the world is. I know this whole post is so random and scattered but I just have so many thoughts running through my brain. I love the Hunchback of Notre Dame so much. And I like that we get to see Frollo for the evil guy that he is. All of the other Disney villains are so frequently “dumbed” down … in a melodramatic way. Frollo is just legitimately horrible. He is racist, abusive, murderous and lustful and horrible. And I think it is good know those things are in the world. Monsters exist in the form of humans but so do angels. I just love the movie so much. And Esmeralda is my hero!
