Friday stuff

1. Today concludes hell week. I survived four tests and a project and all I got was this lousy headache.

2. Remember when I went to Europe for three months? I still haven't written about my trip to Barcelona (my favorite weekend trip of the summer) and Oxford in general. Stay tuned, because I will share.

3. This song.

4. Today the Braves play in a one game playoff "series" (is it a series if it's only one game?) against the St. Louis Cardinals to enter the real playoffs. I stopped caring about the Braves a long time ago. Like  I told my mom earlier this week, I learned a long time ago not to derive my self-worth from the performance of my favorite sports teams (I think I'd be the most worthless person if I did, too!), but I somehow let myself become peripherally invested. If I recall, the last playoff game I watched with the Braves was in 2005. Ask my dad if you want to know the whole story, because he loves to tell it.

5. I've been on a TV-rewatch kick lately. It started with Mad Men (rewatched twice, natch) and now I'm into Gilmore Girls. That show is seriously good. And so funny.

6. I hope to get back to more regular posting here. Whenever I write I always realize how much I miss it. So thanks for reading, as always.


  1. hope the headache is better. great GG clip. I laughed out loud! (and no pressure, but I would love to see you here more often. I've missed it too!)

  2. a. i'm glad you survived hell week b. i feel the same way about the braves and most teams in general-over rated, and there are way better things to do with my time. i have on my list to watch mad men, have heard great things about that show.
