Summer is for late nights watching TV... and you know, other things too...

Currently listening to: Forensic Files on truTV...
Currently reading: Harry Potter a l'ecole des sorciers by J.K. Rowling (French Harry Potter), I'll Scream Later by Marlee Matlin

I watched the Oscar Nominated movie 'Rachel Getting Married' today... and was completely unimpressed. It was possibly the most contrived film I've ever seen. It tried way to hard to be a hard hitting emotional roller coaster of a movie and still failed to make me feel anything but boredom. In other watching things news... I've devoted the past few weeks to the TV series 'Lost'... mostly because I had seen random episodes and needed to understand it. It's most definitely an addicting show, but after watching the fifth season, I don't know how I feel about it anymore. I really did like it through the third season, then I got into the fourth season and wanted to like it, but it was starting to disappoint me. The fifth season made me sad... it wasn't fun to watch, mostly because it seems like it's setting up for an unimpressive sixth season. I really hope the show shapes up, because it is super interesting...

Anyways, I'm sitting upstairs listening to the TV and thunderstorm, waiting for sleep to come. Also, I just re-read the paragraph that I wrote and found it highly impersonal.

Currently listening to: Negative by Project Jenny, Project Jan
Currently reading: 3 books... Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz, The Giver by Lois Lowry & Moab is My Washpot by Stephen Fry

This is proving to be an exceptionally boring summer. I've spent so much time sleeping/reading/watching TV and I've only been home for 2 weeks. I am having fun experimenting in the kitchen though, I've been cooking for my mom & dad. I guess that's all I'm going to blog about, I'm tired.

This time I mean it....

Currently listening to: A Harry Potter Podcast... (I'm a dork)
Currently reading: Doctor Who - The Story of Martha (Also a dork)

Yes, yes, it's been a long time since I've written anything... I'm not sure why, I just kinda got out of the habit of telling everyone what I've been up to, but now is as good a time as any to start again. I'm in New Baltimore again for the summer... to make a long story short, I spent the first week of my summer vacation working in Wisconsin at a really awful job at what used to be a really great water park. It sucked. A lot. And they had us living in the most awful housing I've ever been to, and I lived for a week in a bure. So, I - as well as Nicole - quit. We stayed for a night at a hotel so that I could fill my quota for going down water slides for the summer. We ended up staying at the Kalahari for an amazing price and after hearing our sob story from our job, the girl at reception upgraded us to an amazing suite. It was pretty great.

Now, I'm pretty much staying home, although I'm doing all the cooking and cleaning for mom & dad and being reimbursed monetarily... which is better than being in the hole in Wisconsin.

As much as I think I will never go back to the state of Wisconsin, there are 2 great things that I had the chance to experience. Cheese Curds and Fairy Food. Yes, they're both food. Which just shows that Wisconsin doesn't have anything to offer but food. Anyways, Cheese Curds are pretty great, but turns out that Fairy Food is my long lost love Hokey Pokey from New Zealand. So that was exciting. Otherwise, Wisconsin can suck it.

Hopefully this summer I will get some sewing done and maybe get my own web domain, because who doesn't want their own website?

As soon as my roommate sends me the photos from our awful apartment in Wisconsin, I will post them here.
