Stephen Hawking died this week on Pi Day in a weird coincidence
Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem , there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t give up.”

Stephen Hawking, world renowned physicist and author of books, including A Brief History of Time and The Theory of Everything, died in his home in Cambridge. Hawking was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and he appeared as himself on television shows including The Simpsons and The Big Bang Theory.

OSCARS
This was the year to root for maybe not necessarily performances but actors that hadn’t been given due credit before.

Sam Rockwell finally won an Oscar for his performance in Three Billboards Outside of of Ebbing Missouri A mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter’s murder when they fail to catch the culprit.

Gary Oldman has worked as an actor for 36 years and he’s finally walking away with an Oscar. I couldn’t believe when I heard that. I’m so happy for him and found his Oscar winning role in The Darkest Hour magnificent.

Roger A. Deakins finally wins, I guess 14th time is a charm, for his cinematography in Blade Runner 2049. He’s been the cinematographer on a few films you may have heard of including Fargo, The Village, No Country for Old Men, and Sicario.

I finally saw The Shape of Water which was magical and entertaining. There’s a hilarious video online comparing it to the film Splash. It’s so unique in that the relationship is only able to be conveyed nonverbally. I’m also watching Gravity Falls and Pretty Little Liars.

I’m also rewatching Breaking Bad and rewatched Speed and The Net. Also for all of you Oregonians out there I’m watching Gravity Falls and I’m loving it.
