Wednesday blahs and The Oscars

18 September 2013

Is it really Wednesday already?

I went back home yesterday for the night and slept on my cousin's couch. I'd like to take this moment to share with you the fact that said couch was about the size of a sofa chair, and while sleeping on it I felt like I was Snow White sleeping in the Seven Dwarves' house. Needless to say, my back is in knots and I'm exhausted.

Plus it's Wednesday and this week has been so lame. On the plus side, last's night's episode of New Girl did not disappoint!


I figured today would be a good day to post an update of one of my goals! Get ready, because this list is going to be looooooong.

I've made a lot of progress! I think I can actually do it this year! I can't wait to check that goal off of the list, it makes me smile just thinking about it!

How has your week been?

  2. I actually wasn't a huge fan! I hadn't read the book before the movie and about half way through the movie though, "she better not kill herself". I wish I had loved it, because I'm such a sucker for period dramas, but it just didn't pull me like I wanted it to.. :(
