Ahh, here we are once again, 11pm on a Wednesday night; the absolute perfect time for me to ramble on about random things. Thank baby Jesus for Thinking Out Loud Thursday is all I can say.
1. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.
Holy. Crap. I went to see the late show of TFIOS on Tuesday evening. Perhaps a 9:35pm showing wasn’t the best idea after what was the longest day in the world, but I’m SO glad I saw it. I was beyond pleased with the movie. I can’t even imagine a better adaptation of the book! The casting was perfect, every performance was heart wrenching and believable. I don’t particularly like Shailene Woodley, as we differ in opinion on many things ( and she eats clay?!) but she is a damn good actress. So yes, if you haven’t seen this yet, go see it!
2. My DVR is so full of Tonight Show & Late Night episodes that it’s ridiculous. However, I did happen to watch this while working out the other day and it cracked me up so much I had to stop because I couldn’t breathe.
And can we take a moment to appreciate how cute his People magazine cover is?!! Adorbs.
3. On Wednesday I went for my longest run since my race. I made it a full 8k without dying! As I have previously mentioned, I’ve felt SO off lately when I’m running, so I was SO happy yesterday. I have a feeling that all my school related stress has something to do with my feeling mentally off during my runs, but yesterday I felt great. My next 10k is July 19th. Technically I haven’t registered yet, but I’m now 98% I’m going to. I put off registration for a long time because my running had been so shitty.
5. This is kind of old news now, but Amy Poehler’s book is now available for pre order!! I am SO excited, obviously.
6. I haven’t read a book for pleasure since Gone Girl in March ( ps Carrie: I’m gonna send it back to you, I SWEAR) I started one other one, but haven’t had the time/energy/desire to. I’m started to get real excited for reading for pleasure once school is done. I feel so left out in blogland, it seems like people are able to finishing 2-3 books a week. WHAT ARE YOUR SECRETS?! Where the eff do you find time to do that?!
This was a super short TOL, but when all you do is schoolwork & work, there isn’t many interesting life stories to share.
Have a happy Thursday!
Book recommendations? I’ll start making a list for once I finish school!
