More Literary Fun On Rest in Piece Book Blog!

Hey everyone! I thought I would just remind you that in addition to this blog, I also have created a blog dedicated to my book, Rest in Piece! The Rest in Piece Book Blog includes information about my newly published book, information about me as an author, fun book parties including questions and polls, literary advice, and much, much more!

While this blog (Getting Through Anxiety) is mostly serious in content, the Rest in Piece book blog is more along the lines of both informational and fun. As mentioned, the blog is all about my newly published book and the writing process. If you’d like to take a look, please feel free to do so. This week I’ve been celebrating the publication of my book with my second book party – which includes lots of fun polls! There is one more poll tomorrow, but you can always participate in the past polls as well!

Thanks as always for reading and thanks to everyone who has already checked out the Rest in Piece book blog!

Gilmore Girls : A Year In The Life – Review

Okay guys, I didn’t plan on it but I finished Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life in two days! While it’s still fresh in my mind, I’ve decided to write a review. Warning: Spoilers Ahead…


What I Didn’t Like:

The scene with the musical: The town of  Stars Hollow is throwing a musical – fine. The problem? The scene lasted way too long in my opinion. While I loved Lorelai’s reaction to the whole thing (the looks from side to side saying, ‘Are you serious?’), I thought the whole thing in general was a little obnoxious. Plus, the part when Lorelai walks out and the actress gets all over her – it just didn’t seem to fit with the show.

How some of the scenes seemed forced: I know how they were trying to include everyone, but some of the scenes seemed a little too forced. For example, I loved that Suki was in the show, but waiting until the last minute seemed a little too much. I can’t totally explain it, but some of the show seemed a little pushed.

Rory and Logan’s ongoing affair: I know that Rory’s character isn’t meant to be perfect and that’s fine. However, when we last left Rory before the continuation of the show, she and Logan seemed to split after she said no to his proposal. However, when we returned, they’re carrying on a secret affair?! Can you say, annoying? Not to mention, I think Logan (especially by the end of the show), is an ass. Plain and simple.

Lorelai and Luke’s ‘baby issue’ – I didn’t hate this, but it didn’t totally seemed solved by the end of the show. Sometimes it seemed like Lorelai wanted a baby and at others, it didn’t. I was a little confused.

What I Did Like:

Carol King playing ‘I Hear The Earth Move’ – This was great and it cracked me up! I love the song and love how Taylor didn’t find it catchy! Just a really funny scene!

The Dancing Scene with Logan and Friends – I loved this whole scene including the great music! It was amazing!

Lorelai and her Mother: I liked how they kept the relationship between Lorelai and Emily tense, but at the same time, loving at times. Emily still isn’t a saint after Richard dies, but she still has moments when you can tell that she loves her daughter.

How the Characters Were Put to Good Use – I liked how Jess was put in the show (though I could practically hear the audience clapping as he walked in – it’s just how he randomly showed up). He came in to help out Luke with his mom and he visited Rory and the paper. I also like how they had Lane in the show. I also enjoyed seeing Dean! Seeing Michelle again was great as well. I liked seeing Suki but felt that her not showing up until the end was awkward.

Lorelai and Rory’s Relationship – While maybe not as strong as before, you can tell that the mother and daughter still have an incredible bond. I loved that the creators of the show kept that.

Rory writing a book about her relationship with her mother – I thought this concept was fantastic. So much so, that Lorelai not liking the idea at first pissed me off!

Spoiler Alert: Major spoilers ahead…….

Lorelai and Luke Getting Married – I’m so happy this finally happened! I think they did a great job with it.

‘The last four words’ – I guess everyone is referring the last words as ‘the last four words’, so I’ll do the same. At first I was like, “That’s all we get?”, but after a while, I kind of liked how it ended. It leaves us wanting more, but at the same time, we feel satisfied with the ending (I did anyway). The baby is most definitely Logan’s (it didn’t seem like Rory had seen Paul very recently) and she’ll most likely raise it by herself. Perhaps she’ll end up with Jess in the end since he obviously still has feelings for her. Though, personally, I don’t think she likes him like that anymore. Who knows.

Overall Rating: 8/10

November Challenge – November 26th

What TV shows have mattered to you?

So while I think the word ‘mattered’ is a little strong (after all, in the end, they are just shows), here’s a list of my favorite shows!)

Friends – Friends is my all time favorite show. It has great actors and is hilarious. I have all the seasons and honestly I could (and have) watch them a million times. Also, I know that a lot of people pick on little things that are unrealistic, but I think it’s one of the more realistic comedies. I mean, take Seinfeld for example – utterly unrealistic. Friends has also helped me relax during stressful times.

Quantum Leap – Quantum Leap is a great show about a scientist bouncing around to different times in his lifetime to ‘fix things that once went wrong’. It’s an amazing show that can be utterly heartfelt. I also love the character Al – he’s awesome! This show also means a lot to me because I remember my dad watching it when I was younger.

Early Edition – Early Edition is a great show about an average  guy who goes out of his way to help others. Every morning a cat arrives at his door with tomorrow’s news – how awesome is that? Plus, Kyle Chandler is an attractive, talented actor! This is another show I remember watching when I was younger and still enjoy watching.

Gilmore Girls – Gilmore Girls is a show that both makes me laugh and cry. I love so many of the characters as well. Great show!

Supernatural – Supernatural is a fantastic show. As I’ve mentioned before, I really thought it would suck. I’m sorry, but it’s true. I was bored one day and saw it on Netflix. I had heard of so many people watching it so I decided to try it, and man am I happy I did! I’ve seen all the seasons (some twice) and am still watching the show! Fantastic! It’s also fun being able to talk to some amazing people about the show!

Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman – Another great show that my dad introduced to me. Honestly, I think Teri Hatcher plays the best version of Lois Lane and I think Dean Cain plays a great Clark Kent/Superman.

Mad About You – Mad About You is a great comedy about a married couple living in New York.

Alias and Prison Break – I’m grouping these together because they’re my two favorite action shows. I like Alias more but Prison Break is pretty awesome too!

I love a lot of shows, but in my opinion, these are the best of the best!
