Hello everyone! So in my time here I haven’t really come across a studyblr challenge other than the great “100 days of productivity” meme which I know is really helping a lot of people! I know there are probably some out there but I decided to contribute too!
However, I know some people struggle with what to post and when, and 100 days is a huge commitment! So I designed this short(er) “30 Day Studyblr Challenge” that anybody can participate in if they want to! The 30 days don’t have to be consecutive because I understand that people are busy and can’t always find time in the day to come on tumblr! So I invite you to take part in this little activity, and please feel free to tag me in your challenge uploads - If I see that I’ve been tagged I’ll check the post out.
Here are your challenge questions: Day 1: A photo of your supplies Day 2: A photo of your study space Day 3: Your favourite motivational quote Day 4: A photo of your most recent work Day 5: A photo of your favourite book Day 6: A photo showing how you relax Day 7: The best advice anyone’s ever given you Day 8: A photo of your to-do list Day 9: A photo of your desk in use Day 10: Who is your favourite teacher/professor and why?

I recently had the privilege to see this film on the big screen and take part in a discussion on it. Based on what was discussed, I feel it is time for a post.
This is actually the only Wes Anderson movie I have seen. And I have seen it quite a few times before the fortunate moment I previously mentioned. The first was with a person who will always remain near and dear to my heart, who always showed me very good movies. This was in 2015, after its many Oscars wins and wide release. I have lost touch in many ways with this person, and my relationship with him is strained and painful.
Which is as good of a segue as any as talking about this movie. In many ways, Grand Budapest is also about love and loss. Zero’s loss of Agatha. M. Gustave’s loss of his lady companion. Zero’s loss of M. Gustave. And, ultimately, the loss of the hotel. Many beloved and cherished people and things are lost in time throughout the film, without the characters being able to stop it.
Despite these very sad and nostalgic undertones, as Zero reminisces on all this and misses Agatha deeply, the whole film is charming and cute. In typical Wes Anderson fashion, it is colorful and dainty with delicate title cards and charming set designs that look like the confectionery marvels that come out of Mendl’s. It is a visual treat watching this pastel wonderland and its ever-changing aspect ratios to reflect different periods of time. The style is impeccable, luxurious, and the viewer years for these days much like M. Gustave does.
Not only that, but it has a charming sense of humor and wit. Ralph Fiennes and the whimsical set designs add to this, in particular. The entire film, despite its underlying sadness, is a charmer and a fun visual ride. There are so many lovely shots and lovely cinematography it was hard to pick just ten pictures.
We were happy here. For a little while. This happiness and yearning nostalgia can be captured by watching this movie over and over again.

An avid cat fan himself, Xiumin would be excited about the
prospect of adding another kitty to his collection. He’d teach you everything
he knows related to the world of cats, and would probably dote on your kitten
even more than you would.
Though more of a dog fan, Baek would think it’s adorable
that you wanted a pet for yourself- whether cat or dog. He’d probably enjoy cuddling up with the
little kitten, but would opt out for the whole “clean-the-litter-box”
Happy to help with your dream of getting a kitten, Chen
would make sure to do lots of research beforehand so you two would be
well-prepared parents. He’d probably insist on naming the little furball a
cheesy pun name, like Bob Meowrly.
Chanyeol wouldn’t be too thrilled about the idea of getting
a cat. Though he loves most furry things, he’s a dog type of guy, and it would
take some convincing to get him to agree. He’d help take care of the kitten
anyway, wanting to make you happy.
A sucker for literally anything soft, Lay would readily
agree to your ideas. He’d buy lots of cute little outfits for the kitty, and
many different toys. You’d frequently come home to him lying on the floor
playing with his new friend.
D.O’s number one concern would be whether you would be fully
willing to take care of a new pet. He’d chip in and help, however considering
he wouldn’t necessarily want the cat in the first place, he’d probably just let
you do most of the work, brushing it occasionally and that’s it.
Behind you with almost any decision you decide to make, this
would be no exception. Suho would be pumped to be a pet-parent, and would even
buy him and you matching “#1 Mom/Dad” coffee mugs. Not to mention, he’d make a
picture of the kitten his phone background.
Although Kai thinks kittens are adorable, he’s more of a
puppy guy, and would probably try to convince you to get a doggie instead. Once
he finally realized how seriously you wanted a cat, he’d happily help you pick
out the cutest, fuzziest one you could find.
A living cat himself, Sehun would encourage your dream of
owning a cat and buy the chicest one for you. He’d do a lot to help with taking
care of it, however when it came to scooping the litter box, he’d generously
let you do it.
