Of course, I only make time to blog when I’m sick. I’m writing this from the comfort of my couch, where I’m dealing with a cold by drinking my weight in orange juice. I figured now would be a good time as any to post what I’ve been up to lately:
Watching: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It’s a web series that is a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, created by Hank Green (who also created the vlogbrothers channel with John Green). It’s kinda awesome and really well-done. There’s new episodes every Monday and Thursday and it’s already halfway through the novel’s plot, so check it out!
Listening to: My high school nostalgia mix. Every so often, I feel like listening to these songs I used to love and reminiscing. It’s got plenty of tracks by Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Yellowcard, and Dido. I’ll probably be switching over to Christmas music any day now.
Thinking about: All of the stuff there is to do in December! The Renegade Craft Fair is back this weekend with their holiday fair. Alex and I still need to finish our Christmas shopping and check out the Christkindlmarket downtown. Throw in a couple of different parties, including Alex’s 30th birthday, and it’ll be 2013 before I know it.
Looking forward to: Going home next month! I can’t believe I’ll be back in Texas in a matter of weeks to celebrate the holidays with my family. Good food and tons of baking await me. I can’t wait.
Reading: I’m seriously failing on this front right now. Good thing I asked for plenty of books for Christmas!
Making me happy: Lazy Sundays. Christmas decorations all over the city. Fuzzy blankets. The return of peppermint mochas. Baking new things (I semi-successfully pulled off an apple pie for a friend’s birthday). Re-watching Game of Thrones because WINTER IS COMING.
I’m really looking forward to the holidays (I’m a huge dork when it comes to Christmas) but also can’t believe that means that 2012 is coming to an end. What are you guys excited about?
