Nothing about this week has been normal. Most days, I feel like Peter Pan; doing everything I can to avoid the messy, emotionally draining issues that come with adulthood. But every once in a while, I’m pulled back down to reality by my pesky shadow to face all the things I like to pass over in favor of matinee movies and popcorn for lunch or hours of practicing our family dance and a cappella routine. A chronically ill kid, parents who are out of work, a bully issue, and OH YEAH, my toilet keeps making this running noise and won’t stop no matter how hard I kick it or jiggle the fucking handle OMG WITH THE RUNNING.
So yeah, I deal with that crap because that’s what being an adult is, and I do really want to deal with it, but it totally stresses me out that I suck at it, because while I thrive on being mediocre at random things, sucking at important things drives me crazy.
So, I’ve been trying hard to fill my day with, like, fun hobbies.
About Last Night, Ruthie Knox: Like, the first chapter sucked and I hated it, but then I ended up totally liking it. It’s got a touch of smut, but, like, they have British accents, and it’s bloody lovely.
I Suck At Girls, Justin Halpern: This is the guy who wrote Shit My Dad Says. While the twitter account was funny, I never read the book, and honesty felt meh about reading this one. Except I’m so glad I did because it was fantastic. Totally hilarious.
The Siren: Tiffany Reisz: Again, smut, but totally well written and really entertaining. It kept me on my toes the whole time, I didn’t know who I wanted to root for, which was a nice change of pace. I devoured it in 24 hours.
I watched movies at 4am:
Beastly: Alright so, in order for your eyes to not roll all the way back into their heads, you have to suspend reality a bit. For example, pretend it’s totally normal LisaGay Hamilton has a Jamaican accent, Neil Patrick Harris is blind and that Mary-Kate Olsen is a brilliant actress. Once you get past that, you’ll see a guy named Alex Pettyfer who I’ve now dubbed my new pick for Christian Grey.
Our Idiot Brother: This movie had Paul Rudd in it. That’s basically all I have to say about that.
Katy Perry: Part of Me: Ok I rented this during a bout of insomnia (Andy was less than thrilled by this purchase), and here’s the thing. I don’t know what happened to me while watching it, but maybe if everyone on in the world would be forced to watch this, I don’t know, war would stop and people would have enough food to eat.
I’ve also been up to all this:
- I help you to have a successful garage sale by telling you how NOT to creep out the general public with your shit.
Here’s some cool shit I saw online:
I received such a huge response from the Bullied post, and I wanted to share one of them with you. This video is by Megan Landry, she wrote this song and made this video herself. It’s super powerful, and she’s amazing in every sense of the word.
