(moved out of my apartment last week)

Watching: Hemlock Grove. I just finished up Vampire Diaries season 4 and all the Netflix episodes of How I Met Your Mother, so I was in need for something new in which to occupy my time. Since Hemlock Grove has been much buzzed about and appealed to my love of things supernatural, I decided it was worth a shot. Though I'm only a few episodes in, I'm still undecided. I want to like it so much - but I find myself being entirely confused through large parts of it. Still, I think I'll stick with it for now.

Reading: I picked up The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter - And How To Make The Most of Them Now by Meg Jay and The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell. I hope to read them simultaneously, but so far I'm only a few chapters into The Defining Decade which has been a really interesting and relevant read. Since I've turned twenty, I find myself obsessed with all things surrounding twenty-culture, so this book is really feeding my obsession. The Other Typist is a non-fiction book revolving around a typist for the NYC Police Department named Rose, set in the year 1923. It looks to be filled with lots of interesting plot twists and turns as a glamorous new typist named Odalie arrives on the scene and drags Rose into an underworld filled with speakeasies and other such mischief.

Listening To: Sirius Alternative Radio and The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Hello.

Eating: Since I'm back at home and have the shelves stocked, I'm enjoying lots of breakfast foods and fresh strawberries. Yum!

Looking Forward To: Vacation! Getting away for a week will be just the thing. Late June could not get here fast enough!

Mourning: The loss of a sorority sister. The main reason for my absence since finals ended in addition to moving home and unpacking. The unexpected death of a beloved sorority sister has deeply touched me and sent our whole sisterhood into grieving. It's made me think so much about death and the preciousness of life.

  1. I am so sorry about your sorority sister. :( *big hug*

    The Other Typist sounds like a cute, fun read. (I have a weird definition of "cute", BTW and I enjoy mob/gangster culture, so yeah. ^_^)

    If you're into sci-fi AT ALL, I highly recommend Battlestar Galactica on Netflix, oh my word. <3


I value each and every comment. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to leave one!
