For instance, on Tuesday I had a lovely picnic date with Stephen, AKA the guy I really like. I didn't take any pictures, in part because of the whole philosophy that you aren't actually enjoying what you're doing if you stop to take pictures, and in part because I just didn't feel like it. I also wasn't thinking of how I was going to write about the event later in a blogpost unlike I usually do. (Having been a blogger for about five years now, it's a habit.) I thoroughly enjoyed the day, though. There's no doubt about that! There's a lot I'm not going to say, but I will tell you I read aloud the first chapter of The Fault in Our Stars and he was kind enough to listen. And that I am quite possibly the happiest I've been in a really, really long time.
I'm currently listening to Temper Trap play live at Bonnaroo thanks to a stream on YouTube. Using the same channel, I watched Radiohead perform last night and I had SO MANY FEELINGS. Especially during House of Cards, for reasons.
In the past few days I've watched a good number of episodes of Breaking Bad and several movies thanks to my one month free trial of Netflix. Hey, I'm going to milk it for all it's worth! Instead of talking about the films individually, I figure I will compile a comprehensive list of all of them and then give my thoughts in one massive post. Look forward to that, I suppose.
After hearing it was good from several sources, I finally read Divergent by Veronica Roth. I can see why people would compare it to The Hunger Games, but I think it stands it own. I've only just started the sequel, Insurgent, so I'll have to wait and see how it all pans out before saying too much. Plus, there's a third book to be released soon (because apparently you can't write YA fiction making it a trilogy) and that could either make or break the series. Still, if you're looking for a compelling read to occupy potentially rainy summer days or accompany you outside, I certainly recommend it.
I hope your summer days are awesome, friends!
