Okay, so … I’ve been procrastinating. I’ve pretty much been chilling out at my apartment and being a useless human being. To be fair, I was sick over the weekend so I just laid around drinking water and eating crackers, but that’s really no excuse for my laziness. I have watched A LOT of television shows on hulu.com though: Kings, New Amsterdam, The Listener, Jack of All Trades, and Death Note. Oh, and last night I went out and saw “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”. I actually enjoyed the movie and thought they did a pretty good job with it, but I think they over-emphasized all of the teenage relationship drama.
I have been somewhat good though. I finished reading “Prodigal Summer”, which I found to be an okay book. Not exactly my type of novel since it just felt too static. I’m not sure if that’s exactly the word I’m looking for, but most of the novel is written from within people’s heads, so there’s not so much action but a whole lot of thinking. It was well-written and I can see why it’s a rather successful novel, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. Now I just need to finish off “Mere Christianity” so I can finally return it to my friend. I borrowed it over a year ago. Yeah, I’m a bad friend. Hm, that reminds me that one of my friends still has my copy of “Sophie’s World” from a year or two ago.
I haven’t boughten anything unnecessary in a while either. Well … I did buy one spool of ribbon, but it was just one! It’s just simple 5/8″-wide white satin ribbon, which is always useful, right? That’s my justification. Oh, and it was just a dollar too. Forgive me? I also caved and asked my roommate to buy me some croissants for me because I was craving them. I’m trying to finish off all the food that I have before I move, so I wasn’t supposed to buy any more food. But a girl needs a little indulgence once in a while. And today I finally pulled out some boxes and am starting to pack. Okay, that’s not exactly true. I did pull out some boxes, but they’re still empty at this point. Oops.
