With COVID-19 putting the kibosh on our social lives for the time-being, it’s not hard to get a bit bored or feel a bit lonely sometimes. Living with an auto-immune disease has made me no stranger to this kind of life (you could say that I have been in quarantine for years now!😆), and movies are one of my favourite escapes.
I have loved movies for as long as I can remember. It started with Disney movies (Disney princesses to be exact). If my mom ever needed to distract me she would just put a princess on and I would get lost in my movie. When I was in high school my best friend and I had sleepovers every weekend, and we would always start our night at Blockbuster. She would pick a comedy, I would pick a horror movie and then we would get a whole bunch of snacks!😍
When we got back to her house or mine we would get all of our treats and drinks ready, make the room as dark as possible and shut the whole world out. We’d watch the scary movie first and then the comedy after (to prevent nightmares) and we would usually talk and add our own commentary the whole time.🙊 We would end up falling asleep on the couch most nights, then do it all again the next night. Those nights are some of my favourite memories. I continued this tradition throughout college (though it did change a bit when Netflix replaced Blockbuster) and have added a few more bffs to movie night.🥰
I’m open to watching pretty much any movie at least once but I prefer sci-fi/fantasy, horror/thriller, and action movies. Oh, and I love documentaries!! I generally don’t like romantic comedies or dramas except for a few (in my opinion) classics, but my favourite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany’s and my two favourite actresses are Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
I wanted to find a way to spend more quality time with friends and escape from my worries for a little while, so I have started hosting online movie dates on my Twitch channel! I watch two movies every Friday night at 8 pm and 10 pm. You can chat as much or as little as you’d like, if you just want some background noise that’s ok too! I’ll update the schedule weekly on my Twitch channel, if you want to know what I’ll be watching. Come meet me if you’re in the mood for a movie or two!😘
