On: Obergefell v. Hodges

US-COURT-RIGHTS-GAY MARRIAGEHistory is very, very close to being made, Fangirls. Hopefully. The Supreme Court is preparing to decide on nationwide marriage equality within the next few days, in a case titled Obergefell v. Hodges. It is a ginormous deal.

Scrolling around Netflix can do the heart some good, Fangirls. I love choosing random movies or shoes to watch, things I’ve never heard of. I went to do this one day this past weekend, and accidentally ended up at a movie I had wanted to see, I just didn’t know what it was. I had heard about Beginners, though I hadn’t remembered the name, and after initially choosing the movie, was delighted that “Oh! This is that movie!” However, this was more than “that movie”, Fangirls. This was an incredibly directed and creative film that had me feeling all sorts of feelings.
