August Wrap Up

month 08


I went through a major reading slump this month. Nothing interested me. I lost the book I was supposed to be reading for review when I cleaned my house, and then I kind of went ‘fuck it’ and didn’t want to read anything at all. I spent more time on other hobbies – rewatching Charmed on Netflix, getting back into puzzles and gaming and knitting. I think I’m trying to find more balance in my life and not have it be half about books and half about work. I want to do things other than read. So I went out and bough $300 worth of art supplies. I used to be quite the glass and watercolour painter, and I want to get back into it.

It was also my birthday this month, so despite not being in a particularly bookish mood I forced myself to buy some books.

Monthly Highlights

It was my birthday this month! I’m one step closer to the big 3-0, so I didn’t do anything to celebrate this year. One of my closest friends is a year younger than me and her birthday is two days after mine, and she always has a dress-up party, so I went along as Velma Kelly from Chicago.

    first off – HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!!!?????????????????????

    second off – I love Charmed but hate it on netflix because they changed ALL the music and the music is part of what made the show great – just dont get the same feels with the crappy replacement music (which may not actually be all that crappy if you didnt know the original music) – I own the entire series on dvd and binge watch it periodically

    and lastly just wait til you are nearing 50 – ouch lol

      First of all THANK YOU.

      Second of all – yeah it’s weird hearing all the music changed. I took a while to get used to the new opening credits song (although they did use it on the DVD release of the final season as the license to How Soon Is Now expired before the DVD release) but then my husband bought a new sound system and the bass sounds AMAZING so I don’t mind it so much anymore when it goes DUNNNNN DUNNNN DUNNN DUNNN with that screaming guitar.

      But I do miss How Soon is Now, it just fit so well.

        and Sarah Polley singing Courage in that one episode with Phoebe crying on her bed with Paige and Piper comforting her – that made the scene
