Hello, hi, and welcome to another Sunday which means another blog post (I think).

For today, I am doing something my last year self would never have thought doing, an art haul!

If you know me personally, you will now that anything related to visual art is something I don't do well. My hands were just never for drawing or painting, making me hate anything with relation to paints, crayons, and the like. Well, not actually hate it, but it's just not in my alley.

Nonetheless, I am a lover of anything with relation to words, may it be writing poems and stories or this — blogging! And just months ago this year, something that combines both visual and written art caught my attention — brush pen calligraphy! And when my sister asked if I was somehow interested in that field of art, I decided to say yes even if I have no idea of what I'll be doing. With the glory of the heavens above, my sister bought me the "basic" materials required to actually do brush pen calligraphy and months later, here we are. 

As you may or may not have noticed this "haul" is a two-part blog post. This first one would be all about watercolors and palettes I used for the past three months I've been "trying" to do calligraphy. And the second part would talk about the brushes and papers I've been using. The reason behind this is not because I have too many materials (debatable) to show you, but rather because I am a very busy student and I barely have enough spare time to make this blog post so I figured the most rational and efficient way to do this is to separate this haul.

Just a disclaimer, I am NOT by any means a professional nor at the very least am I knowledgeable enough to fully understand what I am saying but I will do my very best to share my personal thoughts about these products. I am also barely able to habitually practice my calligraphy so don't expect some jaw-dropping art as to I only had less than three months of practice and I started as someone who knew absolutely nothing about paints except for the fact that they act like wet crayons. Plus everything's hard to manage (school, personal, etc.) so, I've only had a very little amount of practice, I just really wanted to share to you guys what works (and doesn't) for me.

Hello, hi, and welcome to my blog! It has been more than a month since I posted anything and I don't really have much of a reasonable explanation, so...... let's just head right into this review.

This day, 7th of June, I finally have watched one of my most anticipated movies of the year— Wonder Woman! And I can happily say that I am not disappointed at all. Although, I did not love every part of it (that I will discuss further on), I did enjoy it so much!

Before heading on to the actual review, here is what I know of the Wonder Woman Movie before watching the film:

Wonder Woman is the fourth movie of DC Extended Universe franchise distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures that was released in the Philippines last June 1. Directed by Patty Jenkins, this movie earned a total of $103,251,471 on its opening weekend. As of now, it has reportedly grossed $240 million worldwide. This 141-minute long movie is starred by the amazing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman herself along with Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. It is also starred by Connie Nielson, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis and a bunch more amazing actors.

(All of the details above are from IMDb and Wikipedia.)

Now that everything has been told, let's get on to the review!

Disclaimer: I am in no way knowledgeable enough to critic films in much intricate explanations. More often than not, I would probably repeat words I just said, forget the fitting terms, and just ramble everything up.

First of all. this movie was phenomenal! It was everything I anticipated it to be. It was so action-packed and was just purely wonderful. Although, I wouldn't say that it was Earth-shattering (it was for the first 3/4 in but the ending was a bit off for some personal reasons) this definitely was a huge improvement from previous DCEU films, at least in my opinion. Just a side note, I adored the first three DCEU films so if you're looking for a love-hate opinion towards the franchise, you probably wouldn't get it here.
