Okay, so I’ve just realized my attempt at “Monthly Faves” instead of “Weeklies” hasn’t worked out. I haven’t done one since January. So I’m trying again with Seasonal Faves. Who knows? This could become an annual thing if I’m not careful. Continue reading
To be honest, the way my year has started has been probably one of the worst starts to a year I can remember. Sorry I keep disappearing. Continue reading
I wonder whether I should just make it official and rename these Bi-Weeklies?
Nah. Continue reading
Sorry I’ve been gone awhile. I’ve been sick, and working on my ECP (thesis/dissertation) which I’m actually supposed to be working on right now. I was doing so well posting a blog post every day, and then this last week has just been a let down. Oh well, I’m back (temporarily). Continue reading
Just because I’m busy all the time doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy stuff. Here are this month’s weeklies (because let’s face it, these only ever happen every month anymore). Continue reading
Yes, this Weeklies is going to be on a Thursday. It’s been a crazy week and it’s not even over yet, so you’ll have to make do with this. I’ll tell you about my week soon enough. There’s a lot to catch up on.
Let’s start with music. Continue reading
These shouldn’t even be called Weeklies anymore. I’ve had this blog for 50 weeks and this is only the 19th Weeklies I’ve done. But oh well. Let’s see what I’m into this week.
I completely forgot Weeklies even existed. The last time I did one was way back in June. Oops.
I’ve taken a short break from blogging, but not to worry. I’m back now!
Book: I don’t often recommend books that I haven’t read myself, but I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like so this recommendation comes from my dad. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. According to my dad, it’s really good. I got him the sequel for Father’s Day, The Rosie Effect.
TV Show: A friend of mine recently got me addicted to Pretty Little Liars. It’s not the type of show I usually go for. It’s got mysteries and serious themes. Murder, torture, tricks, and mind games are all part of the story, but so are teenage love, family values, and friendship.
Food: I made stir-fry for the first time this week and it was absolutely delicious. Maybe I’ll write up the recipe for you guys sometime.
Music: MIKA has great summer-y music. This is one of his newer songs.
Okay, so these are quickly turning into Bi-Weeklies, but you know what? I really don’t think anyone cares. I don’t. Let’s continue, shall we?
Food: Salad. I often underestimate the deliciousness of salads, but I had a couple of good ones this past week, and have found a new appreciation for them.
TV Show: Chuck. An excellent story with well-developed, likeable characters. My favourite show used to be Psych, and I’ve been searching for a successor since the show ended. Psych was a dramedy about a fake psychic who solved crimes. Through some Googling, I found out about Chuck, a dramedy about a fake spy who caught bad guys. The crown fits, and I can’t say it’s any better or worse than Psych. What I know is it’s good. Hell, it’s awesome.
Book: The Book Thief. I finally finished it, and reviewed it here, if you’re interested.
Music: Do I Wanna Know by Arctic Monkeys. I know it’s a bit outdated, but it doesn’t matter because I can’t imagine ever falling out of love with this song.
Website: Tumblr. How could I live in this empty flat for an entire spring break without it? It’s the ultimate time-waster.
Wow. That was pathetic. You know what? I owe you guys more than that. Here’s a haiku I wrote last year:
My dreams are happening to
Someone else right now
Lucky fucking piece of shit
By Ivy Miller
Hope you guys have a good weekend!
