On It's Been Real, Buds

Oh man, I'm coming in after a long line of bots. How do I manage to follow their act?

Jia! You introduced me to lots of cool new music, and you got me to think about a lot of things I wouldn't normally consider, like the role of women in the music industry. (Particularly Nikki Minaj). Thank you!

On Weekend Roundup

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Let's see..

1. Finding out I am teaching summer school, which is an opportunity to do all the fun stuff I wanted to in the school year but didn't have time to because of Common Core.

2. 2 cute new tops, one cute pair of shorts.

3. Lifting more at the gym than I realized I could.

4. Having some good me time this week.

5. Girl's night. :]

On Friday Open Thread

@adorable-eggplant My week has been pretty weird too. I keep wanting to go out and do things, but I have nobody to do them with. It's been frustrating!

On Read Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Short Story "Light Is Like Water"

That story is beautiful. It kind of made me feel warm inside. I write, but I don't think I could ever compose a piece as short, sweet, and beautiful as this.

On You Can Now Enroll at Hogwarts Via MOOC

Do I put myself in the house I really want to be in, or do I acknowledge what house I know I am deep down (Hufflepuff)?

There's the rub.
