Well it has been quite a while, hasn’t it.
I am so behind on the stuff I wanted to write about. Life just keeps happening. Which, uh, is probably something I shouldn’t complain about. But here’s a compromise: I will use this post as a brief update of all the things that have happened, and then perhaps I will elaborate later. Yes, I’m aware this is something I always say then never do. It’s fine. It will be FINE.
First of all, Florida was AMAZING. There was beach and ocean and sunshine and JET SKIS just like I had planned. We…may now be looking to buy a jet ski. Not that we have a wedding or house to save up for or anything. Oh, also there was a girl in the room next to us who had a literal psychotic breakdown because her boyfriend cheated on her and the cops were called. Other than that, it was a perfect relaxy type of vacation where we mostly laid on the beach and drank wine. And ate a lot. A lot. Especially these guys. The 4 of us literally ate through 4 bags of them, omg, I just realized that’s a bag of person, but it doesn’t even matter because they’re so GOOD. Also, while I was down there, it very much inspired me to write more because I have a story bouncing around in my head that takes place on an island, so hopefully I’ll GET ON MY ASS AND WRITE MORE.
I have 2 Hannibal episodes to Sort Of Review so I may just do a 2-episode post to make my life easier. I will say, though, that this season is BEAUTIFUL and also, I had a dream that Richard Armitage and I were in love. I…may be excited about this Red Dragon stuff coming up.
While on vacation, BOOKS. I finished up Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson and my God that book is hilarious. It is really, really difficult for me to find words funny unless they’re making fun of something or in caps lock, but this book doesn’t’ really do either of those things and was still cracking my shit up. If you think you’re a lesser person because you’re weird, please read this because it will make you feel good about being a weirdo. Once I finished that, I started Howls’ Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, which I love so far but I still got about 25% to go.
Um…I started playing Farming Simulator 2015. Look, I don’t need judgement, but I have been itching to play this game for months and I finally just caved and spent 30 damn dollars on it and I LOVE IT. It’s like Harvest Moon but without the joyful festivals and love and happiness and human interaction – it’s just cold, hard farming. But it’s very informative and exactly the kind of task-based games that I get mightily addicted to. For example, we were driving through farmlands yesterday and all I could think was “YOU SHOULD PROBABLY SPRAY YOUR CROPS SO YOU CAN HAVE A MORE BOUNTIFUL HARVEST SO YOU CAN INVEST IN BETTER MACHINESSS.”
Also, lots of fitness news! In light of US WINNING THE WOMEN’S WORLD CUP LAST NIGHT (wooooo!! USA! USA! USA!) I should mention that I LOVE playing soccer and our rec team is starting up next week! By that I mean, our first game is next week and I haven’t practiced in a year. So this week the boy and I are going to practice like, every day. I bought new socks and an agility ladder that I can’t wait to stumble over. I’ll be pairing this training with a new program I started called Strong Curves by Bret Contreras, who is very obsessed with glute workouts which is good for me because I have no ass and I want one. I started it on Saturday and it seems pretty good so we’ll see how it goes!
Also, Reddit imploded and it was hilarious. It’s been a great couple of weeks, guys.
