(#2) Weeklies!

It’s late and I’m tired, so I’ll make this quick.

Books:

Maggie Stiefvater’s “Lament” ©2008

I’m only 57 pages in, but Stiefvater has yet to disappoint.

Movies:

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

A documentary about a dedicated sushi master. I saw it on the plane home and would definitely recommend.

Websites:

http://tradingvoyageur.com

It has some interesting articles on things like travel and street art..it also happens to be run by my cousin.

Blogs:

iamasexual.tumblr.com

I’ve submitted to them before and they’ve promoted my “I Have A Superpower” article, so yeah. They’re pretty cool.

Salmon, avocado, and a poached egg in a paper cup.

I chose it at random for breakfast at Heathrow before my flight and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was despite seeming like an odd mix.

I’ll have something more substantial tomorrow. Promise.

My Room: Starting From Scratch

You may have figured it out already: Thursdays are about Interior Decorating.

My room happens to be the smallest bedroom in the house, but I chose it because it gets the most sun and the other two rooms had weird mint-coloured walls whereas mine are a light grey. The plan is pretty simple: A door, a window, and a closet.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

Wednesdays I will write about things like TV shows, films, books, websites, YouTube channels, or anything else I happen to be into on any given week. I happened to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in theatres today.

Saturdays are story days! I will post short stories, poems, or anything else that I’ve written in the week. Unfortunately, all I’ve really written this past week are my assignments and some of Book3, so I’ll just write something on the spot.

There’s people watching, and then there’s accidental people watching. I’ve done both. People watching is when you’re sitting somewhere like a park or a shopping mall and you watch all the people around, what they do, what they say, and how they act. Accidental people watching is what I did around two years ago.

(#1) Weeklies!

I have handed in my last assignment before the Christmas break today! *Insert generic celebratory onomatopoeia here*

Today also marks the end of my first successful week of daily blogging! I think that’s a personal record, if you don’t include Tumblr. I don’t.

You know what I just realized right now while writing this? I’m listening to music on my laptop and my earbuds are in my ears, but they aren’t plugged in. I’m just listening to the music on the speakers with pointless earbuds on.

Okay I fixed that.

I’m still finding my footing, but I’d say it’s been a great first week! As of last night, I have had 10 likes on my blog and fourteen followers (some who are just spam and one who is me, but they all count). So thank you for reading this if you are (or will be) one of the people who like what I’m doing on here.

I did some thinking and I came up with a posting schedule for the different kinds of posts I’ll be putting up here. I have something different for every day of the week, and–like yesterday–I may put two up in a day on occasion. I’ll reveal what type of posts each day is going to have as I go along this week. For Fridays, I’m going to be doing something I call Weeklies! Basically, I summarize my week with a few things I love from that week.

Here are today’s Weeklies:

TV Shows: 

– Arrow Midseason Finale

It cut the head off of the other shows with season finales and overshadowed it’s own crossover with Flash, just saying.

Songs:

– Any Other World by MIKA

Films:

– Interstellar (2014, Dir. Christopher Nolan)

Filmed just outside my hometown. My sister was an extra but I don’t think she actually shows up in the final film. At least she got to meet Matthew McConaughey.

Things:

Small Pink Artificial Christmas Trees

It’s almost scary how sparkly my shirt is. It takes guts to wear a shirt like this out!

People:

– IT guys

True life savers, each and every one.

Clothes:

– My sparkly shirt from TopShop

I can’t find it on the website, so I must’ve gotten it on sale. I probably wouldn’t pay full price for such a shiny shirt anyway.

Websites:

– Apartment Therapy

It’s the only thing keeping me sane when I think back to my unfinished bedroom at home. (I also have plans for the garden shed. Don’t tell my dad, he still thinks he’ll keep the lawnmower in there.)

That’s all for today! Come back tomorrow to see what kind of posts I will put up on Saturdays!
