An Egg-cellent Weekend of Breathing

This past weekend, I have taken the time to come back home, and that is where I am spending my time for a bit. I don’t think I see my grandma enough, and we’re coming up on her birthday soon, so I’m soaking up all of her energy while I’m home. My weekend included this and more, so keep reading if you want to find out.

Debating About Friends After Watching for the First Time

I feel like so many people in my life love the show Friends that it was a crime that I hadn’t seen it. So I squeezed it in recently, and while I can say that I appreciate it, I don’t think it is as special to me as it is for everyone else. It is enjoyable for what it is, but I think the reason that people loved it so much is that they were living with it. Like, they had to wait week by week for the next thing to happen, kind of like how I loved shows like Big Time Rush, Hannah Montana, or The Vampire Diaries. They’re so memorable because I remember being invested in the characters, being upset by the cliff hangers, and just having a little escape from life. 

Anyway, for this blog post, I thought I would tackle some of the major debates about the show since Thanksgiving is around the corner. For me, the show really gives me Thanksgiving vibes, so that is my logic.

The Weekend of Feeling Like a Woman

At the beginning of the semester, I kind of considered delaying starting graduate school. Why? The Ladygang announced their tour, and I immediately wanted to go and be a groupie, because I absolutely love them. Their podcast is the good part about my weeks, and no show is ever the same because the crowd is never the same. So I considered it for a minute, but I already enrolled in my classes and I couldn’t forget how hard I worked to be in graduate school.

But this past weekend, I got to live out my groupie dreams. I picked up tickets to their last few shows in Phoenix and Denver (because Los Angeles was sold out). So that’s what I did this weekend, and while I missed Asanti, he’s the best for reminding me how important it is to treat myself in the midst of all my hard work.

What To Fall In Love With Beyond Looks

On a recent trip, my boyfriend and I were out to dinner when he said, “You know, I think this trip has been good for us. I’ve fallen in love with you all over again.” That sentiment is just so sweet, and shows that he always knows how to make my heart melt. It is a great reminder on National Inner Beauty Day that while looks are a nice bonus, they aren’t everything. I’m going to say that since being in this relationship, I’ve put on about twenty pounds and a lot of my clothes don’t fit anymore. There is a significant height difference between us, and as good looking as my boyfriend is, that’s not what attracted me to him. So what is it that we fell in love with that is beyond skin-deep? Keep reading to find out.

My Well-Balanced Weekend

It’s not often that I get a weekend where it’s nicely balanced, one that is equal parts work, socializing, and resting. Either I work or do homework for most of the weekend, or I worked all week so that I could have a completely fun weekend, just like the one I had last weekend. So what does a well-balanced weekend look like for me? Keep reading to find out.

My Very Nice Weekend

It seemed like a much-deserved holiday weekend for me, because I have been laboring my days away since the week before school started. But now I’m back, and while I also spent the weekend doing homework, I also had some fun. Of course, hard work is important, because I don’t live to work, I’m working to live. So enjoy reading about what I worked for this past weekend.

I Finally Finished Reading The Summer I Turned Pretty

This book has been a slight thorn in my side these past couple of weeks. Before the television show came out, I saw a trailer and said, “Oh, I’m going to read that before the show comes out.” But then it seemed like it came out the next day, so I barely had time to try to read it. It seemed like all of the podcasts that I normally listen to were talking about it the weekend after it was released. So in my dedication to not spoil this book before I read it, I pretty much have a lineup of podcast episodes to listen to once I watch the show. Now that I’ve finally finished reading it, I have to wait for my sister in order to start watching the series. We’re planning on having her come over so we can binge watch it together. To bide my time, I thought I would go through a discussion of the book. In my research, I found a fun reddit thread for a Taylor Swift inspired book club, and they chose this book back in June. Since I love Taylor Swift, I thought it would be fun to go through the questions for today’s blog post, especially since I’m also still waiting for the re-release for the rest of Taylor’s albums, or just more new music. I’ll take what I can get.

Another Weekend of Wisdom

So my boyfriend had another wisdom tooth removed before the weekend started, and I believe that this is the last one. The loving, doting girlfriend that I am, I took the weekend off of work to make sure that he was going to be okay. If you’re reading this, it is probably obvious that we both survived the weekend, and if you’re interested in seeing how, you can keep reading.

The Weekend Where I Still Have Some Hula Hoop Skills

It’s one of those rare weekends where I worked, but I didn’t work on Sunday. With how my schedule worked out, I was lucky to be able to spend some time with some girl friends and my boyfriend. Keep reading to learn about my themed weekend that had me wanting to watch Scooby-Doo all weekend long.

Why The Bold Type Stands Out

I’m probably late to the party, but I just finished watching all of The Bold Type. It is a show that really stands out in my mind, and I find that it was so refreshing, comfortable, and pleasing to watch that I can’t bring myself to start another television show. At this point in time, I feel like nothing can measure up to the feeling that The Bold Type gives me when I’m watching, so I am avoiding the idea of starting something new.
