I love natural beauty, and I think it’s your best look, but I think makeup as an artist is so transformative.

“How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d.”
Share my body and my mind with you, that’s all over now. Did what I had to do, ‘cause it’s so far past me now. Share my body and my life with you, that’s way over now. There’s not more I can do.

We would watch everything. The patterns of tree branches spreading out… the thousands of shapes clouds make. I could count the number of leaves on a tree in five hours.
To my great surprise, I’m actually really enjoying it. The plot isn’t too cluttered, the writers aren’t cramming disturbing stuff just for the sake of shock value and they aren’t creating a million separate storylines that don’t entwine nicely with one another. In fact, the only “separate” storyline is Twisty the clown and I have a good feeling he’s going to merge well with the rest of the “freak show” central plot. I’m also enjoying how they’re developing the main characters attentively instead of introducing 75 seemingly crucial characters that will only end up half-assed due to lack of screen time (aka. the usual ahs problem). Given that the episodes are 1hr instead of 40mins, it allows more room to unfold the plots thoroughly. I’m also liking the pace. It’s not rushed and the gradual progress is building up a nice intensity that keeps you engrossed. So far there’s no petty melodrama that seems like a waste of screen time. There’s a nice dosage of everything; horror, suspense, drama, sass, etc. We’re two episodes in and the story as well as the characters don’t fall flat at all. It’s the opposite — the story feels intricately rich with no superfluous crap. Everybody’s acting & characters are engaging (except maybe for Kathy Bates.. idk i’m not feeling her character so far). And yay for Evan Peters actually having an interesting 3-dimensional character again! Oh and last but not least, I am LOVING the aesthetics this season. It’s so colorful and bright which brings a clever contrasting touch to the overall sinister atmosphere. I’m also loving the freak show performances scenes and finally the singing this season doesn’t feel out of place lol.
At least those are my thoughts SO FAR. That’s not so say they’re not gonna screw everything up halfway into the season and waste all that potential again. But as of now i’m really enjoying it which is unexpected for me because I had zero expectations and after being disappointed two seasons in a row I was giving up on this show. Let’s hope s4 stays on this positive track.
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
