Feedback Needed, Please

13 May

I’ve been writing here in this fun place I call Pocketful of Joules for over 8 years now. For much of that time, I’ve been publishing three posts each week. And I love it. And I love all of you guys who stop by!


I’ve been a little overwhelmed lately and I’m thinking about cutting down my posting schedule to two days a week. I’m planning to try it for the summer and see how it feels.

And here is where you come in…

My current publishing schedule is Monday’s, Tuesday’s and Thursdays. If I decide to just post two days a week, which would you like best: Monday’s and Wednesday’s or Tuesday’s and Thursday’s?

Leave me a note down in the comments with your preference! Also, if you think it’s an awful, terrible, no good idea to cut down my posting to two days a week, I want to hear about that too. Comment away!

And thank you!

Who is Your Movie Star Crush?

7 May

I thought it would be fun to talk crushes today! Specifically, do you have a movie star crush? Back when I used to watch a lot of television, I had a bunch of crushes. I would shoot heart-eyes at Booth from Bones, Sawyer from Lost, and Vaughn from Alias.

{Apparently I have a thing for television characters that go by one name…}

Nowadays, I stream my television and I just haven’t had a TV star crush in a while. But, MOVIE star crushes… I’ve got me one of those!

And it is none other than The Rock.

He’s handsome. He’s fit. He’s hilarious. He isn’t afraid to show his emotions. He seems like a genuinely nice guy and he is gaga over his family and specifically the women in his family. What’s not to like?!

So now it’s your turn. Who is your movie star crush and why?

Loving Right Now: The Umbrella Academy

16 Apr

You guys know by now that I love my comic book movies. I ate up Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, etc on Netflix. OF COURSE I love the Marvel franchise and can’t wait for Avengers: End Game. But to hold me over, I’ve fallen in love with a new series on Netflix, The Umbrella Academy.

{Pssst, my Loving Right Now posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything. They are just stuff that I’m totally digging now and thought you would like too. You can check out my previous posts here}

Short and sweet synopsis: The Umbrella Academy is the story of a super-dysfunctional family of superheroes who have eight days to get it together and save the world.

Going into it, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But by the end of the first episode I was hooked. I plowed through all 10 episodes pretty quickly. They just announced that it was renewed for Season Two, so I’m super excited to continue the adventures with the Hargreeves family.

My current favorite characters are Five and Klaus, with a special place in my heart for Cha-Cha and Hazel. I actually started re-watching the entire series, just so I can enjoy it again and savor it a little more this time!

Is The Umbrella Academy on your watch list? If you did watch it already, which is your favorite Hargreeves?

Saying Goodbye to Crazy Ex Girlfriend

3 Apr

Anyone out there watch Crazy Ex Girlfriend?

It’s on the CW (and Netflix) and I’ve been watching it since the very beginning thanks to the CW app.

The show follows Rachel Bunch (executive producer and all around awesome lady, Rachel Bloom) – she appears to ‘have it all’ in the first episode and feels like something is missing. She impulsively decides to give up her life in New York City to relocate to West Covina, CA after running into an old boyfriend. The show has so many ups and downs, with singing and dancing through it all.

I love the relationships between the characters, as well as the way the show shines a light on borderline personality disorder and managing mental health. Crazy Ex Girlfriend has been running for four seasons and the season finale is airing tomorrow.

And I’m really going to miss this show!

So I thought I’d revisit some of my favorite songs from over the series. Please note, many of these are NSFW with some salty language, so you’ve been warned!

I’m super excited about Friday’s series finale and also excited to see the live show that they performed of the show’s songs. Since I watch it on the CW app, I won’t get a chance to see it until after it airs… so finger’s crossed that I don’t get spoiled on anything!

Are you excited about the Crazy Ex Girlfriend Series Finale? What is your favorite song from the show?
