This is a good one. Denise rants about the US media's obsession with "millennials" (AKA snake people). Both sisters talk about the perils and pleasures of setting your own schedule. Burned out ba sila or tamad lang? As for Celine, she goes on a long (is it boring?) segue about environmental humanities. Clue: Hindi ito tungkol lang sa haikus about flowers. Plus, updates on their 2016 goals.

Pancakes. pancakes. PANCAKES.

Denise wants to be a better writer (parang si Murakami daw?) Celine takes this opportunity to be pedantic (again). They also go into their goals for the coming year. Paano ba nagiging goals ang resolutions? In 2016, Celine wants to limit the TV shows and films she watches so that she could write more. This somehow leads to a long segue about racism and sexism in period shows? Ok. As for Denise, she is going to do comedy. Everyone -- meaning Celine -- is excited for her.

Movies and TV Shows mentioned: The Martian, Fury Road, anime, Never Let Me Go, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Deadwood, Fight Club. Plus Star Wars talk, including fan edits, despecialized editions, and toys.
