Augusting

So, I kind of just fell off the blog in July. My stress levels are off the charts right now and I have been reading but haven’t felt like trying to articulate thoughts and feelings.

THIS MONTH: I’ve been looking for a place to live for so long but haven’t been that great at actually procuring one. I’ve made some awkward calls (my phone cut off during a voicemail, I called a wrong number, this one place never answered) and haven’t had much success. All of this is overwhelming. I think I’m finally getting somewhere, so good thoughts are appreciated! I want to be closer to my NEW SCHOOL and I need a place of my own. Plus, my sister has big plans for the room I’m currently in. And I think everyone is just ready for me to be out! SO hopefully this month will see me move into some crappy apartment and I’ll have something completely new to whine about 😉

Also this month: new semester, new school. I’m excited and nervous. I’m taking some classes I’m really interested in. I’m taking French! Online French because the non online classes were at weird times for me. I took German in high school but I think French seems pretty widely used and pretty.

 

OTHER STUFF: I got a hair cut! I like it. It’s a little longer than I wish, but it looks shorter when it’s curled under. And the bangs hamper my eyebrow raising game because I can only raise my left eyebrow. But my left eye is lazy, so it’s better for hair to be in the way of it than my good eye. So complicated.

I also went to see Guardians of the Galaxy with some really cool people and it was SO MUCH FUN. Surprisingly emotional and laugh out loud funny. It isn’t perfect, but it was a lot of fun! I rewatched Brooklyn 99 because I’m pretty lame and I really like that show. I really, really love it. One of my best friends just watched it all and loved it, and it was so much fun to talk about it with her! I’m really excited about all the seasons starting this fall! But I also need to catch up on so many shows. I’m working on Teen Wolf, then I plan to hit The Walking Dead, and I might start The Mindy Project, I need to catch up on Parks and Rec, and I’m sure several others.

 

BOOKS:  I liked The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey, Pointe by Brandy Colbert, I reread The Archived by Victoria Schwab and followed up with The Unbound, and I love those books!! I liked Kiss of Deception but didn’t love it, and didn’t like The Sea of Tranquility much. I read Anna and the French Kiss again to gear up for ISLA but I don’t really feel like reading Lola again, even though I like it. I really enjoyed Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, my favorite Rowell so far. I bought it when it was on sale for 1.99 with my BN settlement money! I also bought my sister If I Stay by Gayle Forman and The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater for her (late) birthday and I’m excited for her to read them. Oh, I also liked The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. I’m not sure if any of these will end up being posts, but I might do something short for some of them? I am super lame right now. I read more than this but kind of got lazy with my list and I’m being lazy now listing them.

 

I’m behind of everything ever, especially commenting! Hopefully I’ll make time for that this week! But if you’ve stopped by and have a post I should look at, or want to rec me a book or talk about a show or anything, let me know! Or feel free to tweet or email me!

    • Thank you! I almost felt like getting a pixie but wasn’t quite brave enough! Maybe someday! And thanks, I think I found something! I hope you like Attachments, it wasn’t perfect, but I enjoyed it and the writing seemed to fit more than her YA for me, if that makes sense!

  1. I have so much to say! First off, I love your new haircut! It’s super cute!! And I can definitely relate to not feeling like articulating anything you’re reading; I’ve been going through that since May/June but I’m finally coming around. I do feel your pain! I wish you the best of luck looking for a new place to live! I know that can be such a challenge, but it’s great you’re looking!

    I just finished Attachments myself and it was my favorite Rainbow Rowell book to date, too! I still need to read Landline. And you definitely need to start watching The Mindy Project!! Although give it half a season to really find itself. Your post also reminded me that I really want to go see the If I Stay movie this weekend (although I probably won’t because I’m so bad at going to see movies in theatres). It looks pretty good!

    Glad to see you back on the blog!! 🙂

    • Thank you! I wish it was a little shorter, but I also like being able to pull it back, even though I will probably rely on that too much! I feel like with certain books I have lots to say then when I go to type I’m just like “. . . ” and will probably end up sounding dumb, but oh well, I guess. Just gotta jump in! I THINK I found a place! It isn’t exactly what I wanted, but I think it will work. Maybe it will end up being better than I expect! I’m not moving for another month, though. Which is fine and not at the same time, I’m sure you understand!

      I’m so glad you liked Attachments (and I know I’ve told you that in comments on your site, too!) I caught up on TW and TWD so The Mindy Project is next and I’m really excited about it. I will definitely give it time, I’m usually pretty easy to please so when people say shows (like Parks or B99) start out slow, I usually end up liking them before other people. That probably isn’t good? But I am also really quick to quit shows later if they do something dumb that just makes me mad, so it’s a toss up. I really want to see If I Stay, too! I wasn’t sure if I really did because I’m not a huge Chloe Moretz fan from the two things I’ve seen her in, but I want to give it a shot. I don’t go to the movies a lot, but I think my sister wants to see it so hopefully we’ll work it out. If you go, I hope you like it!

      Thanks! TY for your comment and making my blog happier too =)

  2. So…I’ve been following your blog for a while and I’m trying to be better about actually commenting on my fellow bookish blogs, so here I am!
    I just saw Guardians of the Galaxy last week. It was a lot of fun, and I was definitely laughing. Baby Groot is the best!
    Your haircut is really cute! It’s funny how you’re saying it’s longer than you’d like, because I’d never cut my hair that short. I like being able to braid my hair and put it up, so I usually don’t cut it shorter than shoulder length. Maybe some day I’ll go for the pixie! 🙂
