For my new readers, I want to introduce myself. I’m Jasmine a college student who is majoring in education. My dream is to become and English/Literature teacher, teaching students anywhere from middle school to college. In the previous post, you’ll see mainly fiction writings of the romance or thriller genre (which are my two favourite genres) as well as movie reviews.
Because I am re-starting up this blog, I figured it would be courteous to re-introduce myself A) for my current readers and B) for my new readers who want to get to know me. So, without further ado, here are ten random facts about myself that you never asked for!

Hello readers, I’m Jasmine! I am a dual enrollment student in eleventh grade. I hope to become an english and literature teacher, teaching students from sixth grade to college. As I mentioned on my About page, this is a blog all about movies, books, television shows, etc. that fall under the romance genre. For movies, I will post the title of the movie and I’ll talk about what I liked and didn’t like about it. I’ll also try to anticipate any kind of spoiler and separate it from the rest of the post (or give it a separate section or something! I’ll try to make it obvious) for those who have not see the movie. For books and television shows, I will most likely talk about the plot of the show then what I find romantic about it. There probably won’t be spoilers but if there are then I will put a warning.
After a year of posting, I would hope to accomplish a blog that is updated regularly and has a wide variety of romantic works.
My favorite romantic movie is Pride and Prejudice. It has been remade several times and I love them all, however my favorite version is the 2005 version directed by Joe Wright. The movie is a period drama based off a book by Jane Austen, taking place in 1813. It’s a story of Elizabeth Bennet one of five sisters and her struggle with conforming to the social norms of the time period as she falls in love.If you want to read more about it here is a link to wikipedia.
I would love comments and constructive criticism, so long as it’s not rude. I will also take request of things (movies, t.v., books, poems, etc.) you want my opinion on. Although, I ask that you be patient and give me enough time to watch whatever it is.
