Star Wars: Episode I- The Phantom Menace REVIEW-VISITED (AAA #2)

Note: This is Day 2 of my new daily blog series, Arjay's Anti-Internet adventures, which I explained in depth in this post: http://www.arcabaran.com/2019/12/arjays-anti-internet-adventures-day-1.html

This is also the beginning of my Star Wars Skywalker Saga re-watch, in which I will be re-watching all of them one by one and giving a short review in retrospect of them before I get to see the finale, Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker. We start out with none other than the first prequel film that released in 1999, Episode I: The Phantom Menace. It is considered one of the most disappointing movies by some fans who look back today, but plenty still loved it and praised it on its release, citing George Lucas as a film-making genius who hadn't yet lost his touch. Today, I re-watched the film for maybe the third or fourth time, and I will discuss my thoughts briefly. Mainly, I seek to answer the following questions: Was it worth the over-15-year wait when it released? What are its bi…

Arjay's Anti-Internet Adventures: DAY 1- How to Successfully Disarm Toxic Ramen Noodles

This is the start of a blog series that I just had the idea for which will chronicle my daily struggles trying to use the Internet for nothing but schoolwork, homework, and writing for my blog as part of my effort to go in spoiler-free for the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker, which will have early-showings tonight (cue the social media leaks), and I also will be watching a full week after worldwide release date. You could wish me luck in the comments, but it's not like I'm even reading them. Why? To continue my 11-day-or-so objective of A.A.A. (Arjay's Anti-Internet Adventures), rules as per how I detailed in my 15th Birthday post. That's enough chit-chat for this inevitably soon to be copy-pasted intro paragraph, let's get into Day 1!

Wait... what is this, exactly?

I made this series right on the spot, after not having much homework for much (or maybe just better time management on my behalf...) and also after some more peculiar things happened at school today.

Why …

MY 15th BIRTHDAY!!

It feels like every single post I make nowadays is about a celebration or special event, since I never get time for anything else, but I don't want to complain about that this time. Why? Since it's the most wonderful time of the year, and my favorite winter holiday: My birthday!

To say that yesterday, my birthday (the post publish date says my actual birthday day December 12, even though technically I'm writing and publishing this the day after, December 13th) was a bit unusual would be an understatement. I woke up, ate some eggs and breakfast, and then walked to my bus stop. Pretty normal. Then, I slipped on some ice on my way to my bus stop, which is two streets down (I got back up and was fine). Then, I went to school and my first class was English. We spent most of our time in class reading. Again, also pretty normal, except that this time it was under the label of hygge- A Danish tradition for having fun. So in other words, some people were allowed to bring in hot co…
