So I won't go too into detail, but I just need to express my current emotions. Literally, I shed a few tears at end-not too weird. I get out of the theater, still a little red eyed and sad (but the good sad). My friends ask me if I'm okay. I open my mouth to express why I had cried, and get out "it was just so beautiful" and then promptly burst into tears and kept sobbing until we got home.

I sincerely apologize to my receiver of my card. It is literally completely and totally ready, its in the envelope, stamped, and everything. Just give me one more day to complete my finals and then I can send it out.

I know, I know, I know. Everyone is raging about this show. You can't go three feet anywhere without hearing "Stranger Things", or "Friends Don't Lie", or hell, even "Bitchin". Point is: It's hot. Popular. Lit.
I am going to add my own voice on this show, on top of all the millions of other reviews/comments/opinions/whatevs.
This show--well, I should really say the idea, or more so the concept of it--is everything I have ever wanted. No, I was never obsessed with the thriller/horror/suspense genre (unless you count Jurassic Park, which, I guess in this case, you can make that argument). Nor was I particularly intune with the
"80's culture". But this show fed my wants that I didn't even realize were there.
It hit that "kids-go-on-an-adventure-and-become-friends-that-last-a-life-time" paired with good ole "character-development-like-ohmygod-yes". Like, I never realized how lonely I felt until I watched this and realized (gah, I'm using that word too much. Synonyms much?) that all I have ever wanted was the childhood adventures with groups of friends.
Dear God, I can only wish that I can create something as clever as Stranger Things one day.

This is the most excited I've been for Christmas because all the gifts I'm getting for my family/friends, are ones that I know will make them excited. Like, usually, I just kind of guess on what to get them, but this is the first time I'm like, yes, THIS is gonna get them to smile, and honestly that's the best representation of "good cheer" ever.
Because I know that they're never gonna see this, here are what I'm getting my family.
Mom: A birdhouse in the shape of a caravan
Brother #1: Actually, I'm unsure on his gift. probably like beer glass, or something.
Brother #2: Oh. Ma, I don't know his either. Something Star Wars themed.
Sister: THIS. I'm getting her this nice poster of an old movie she loves, and the new book from the guy who wrote the Martian. The book is about black markets, SPACE, and SPACE.
Cousin #1: An Off Topic poster, he likes the podcast.
Cousin #2: A behind-the-scenes book about the Princess Bride. He loves that shit.
Cousin #3: A SP7 Hoodie and a poster of the X-files duo.
Brother #1's fiancé: a little eos kit with lip balm and lotion
Cousin #1's wife: A mug that says "Mommy needs her coffee"
Cousin #2's girlfriend/my friend: A poster of Audrey Hepburn and an eos kit.
B: We don't like to get each other expensive gifts, but she's getting this awesome cartoon looking poster that I also have, so we're matching.

I managed to watch about 2/3 of the stream live! It was the most amazing thing ever, and I am falling in love with Rooster Teeth and the family all over again. I mean, 1.2 MILLION DOLLARS. LIKE WHAT.
This was the first time I was able to donate money too! I can't wait to get my poster in the mail.
I can't stop smiling. 1.2 million. Wow. For the kids!
"You turned my mourning into dancing."
