Sunday confessions, vol. 12

Sunday confessions, vol. 12

I don’t like Mumford & Sons. I tried, but they just don’t do it for me. I thought I could at least like their cover of “The Boxer” by Simon & Garfunkel, but I couldn’t find any reason why I would ever listen to it when I could just listen to the original instead, since … Continue reading

see no evil, hear no evil, read no evil

Because it’s 2013 and I have nothing better to blog about than stuff I did in 2012, here’s a recap of some shows, movies, albums, and books that I enjoyed last year. I watched… TV: The Walking Dead · 30 Rock · Workaholics · The Wonder Years · Sex and the City · King of the Hill · Modern Family · The Adventures of Pete & Pete · Roast of … Continue reading

Sunday confessions, vol. 9

Sunday confessions, vol. 9

I don’t believe in “body language.” Sure, there are probably some really basic components of body language that can be read consistently for anyone, but I’m a very direct person so I hate the thought of someone trying to read between the lines of what I’m saying by interpreting my body language. I really like this short … Continue reading

Sunday confessions, vol. 7

I hate traffic. I know that probably everyone agrees with that statement–it’s not like someone would be like “oh well actually, I LOVE wasting gas and time and getting sunburned only on my left arm while sitting in standstill traffic when I’m trying to get from point A to point B,” but I like really hate traffic. My … Continue reading

Sunday confessions, vol. 3

I guess Alyx isn’t doing her normal Sunday linkup today, but I’m still confessing. I don’t like babies. I met my three-month-old niece for the first time this weekend, and she was cute and everything, but mostly I just felt awkward while I was holding her. I don’t want to sound like a dick but I’m … Continue reading

hungry for Hunger Games

hungry for Hunger Games

So…remember how I said that I’m totally not into books that are insanely popular like Twilight and The Hunger Games? Yeah, forget all that (well, not ALL of it–I still fucking hate Twilight), because I went to see the first movie with Erin yesterday for her birthday, and I’m totally on The Hunger Games train now. The movie was … Continue reading

when I'm not drinking

When I was in college, the only things I did that didn’t involve drinking were homework and going to class. Now that I’m an “adult,” I rarely drink, because I’ve found that I actually enjoy taking it easy on the weekends just as much as I enjoy getting rip roaring drunk. These are some things … Continue reading

harry potter and the end of my childhood

Look, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m totally and completely a Harry Potter geek, and I get why a lot of people think that’s lame. But I’m not ashamed, because what Harry Potter has meant to me is something completely unique and awesome, something that could never be ruined for me by someone … Continue reading

money talks

For this week’s Learning Curve I’ll be rambling about the 1976 film All the President’s Men, which is based on the book by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward chronicling their investigation of the Watergate break-in. The thing about this movie is that I put off watching it all last week because even though this is … Continue reading
