People. Ugh.

Just a quick post. Not much going on. I’m only working 17 hours this week. I was off today, and I’m off Thursday and Friday.  I will probably work on Saturday. I need the money. Work is going surprisingly well. Yay!

I’ve been working on creating the astrology course. It is much harder than I thought. Unfortunately, this first version will be very beta. I wanted it to be great. Not happening. 😦 I don’t know whether astrology is hard – YES – or creating all courses is hard. And I’m having a hard time recording due to my living situation. So the sound won’t be great.

People still don’t get that I have shit to do. SO FUCKING ANNOYING. I’m convinced that people judge how much others have to do by what they have to do. I don’t know, but it’s annoying.

I’m boycotting the news until at least Saturday. I’m still periodically checking twitter. But so far for today, I’m out of the loop.

It’s really hot where I’m staying. The AC is non-existent, and it’s over 99 degrees in that room. So I can’t get much done.

I took my dog to the park today. I’m on anti-nausea medicine. I just started it today. Gosh, it does make me tired and dizzy. I can get over the dizzy part as long as I don’t have to drive or stand up. I have a sedentary job, so 6 days out of 7, I’m sitting most days.

The tired part is the part that worries me. I hate being tired. Hate it. It leaves me foggy, and I have a job where the production really matters so I can’t afford to be sleepy or tired. We have to get a certain number of things done a day. I can’t be tired. Not going to work. But if that is the only way off Abilify…

Oh yeah, I stopped taking Abilify on Thursday or Friday of last week. I can’t remember which day. Now I’m worried about nausea. That is the main side effect I have without the Abilify. Oh, and I have depression.

I can’t get on Latuda. It is $1200 a month. LOL. Ha! Does Elizabeth Warren have a plan for that? I’m bummed about that. But maybe I won’t need it. I really, really wanted to try it. There is a generic. It was approved in January of 2019.  However, no one is selling it.

I know this is all over the place, but I’m working on creating my astrology class and this blog post at the same time. I need to stop. I’m good at multi-tasking. I’m a Gemini Moon. I got so much done last night while watching TV, and I thought I wasn’t going to get anything done. I can’t watch anything “deep” or I won’t be able to concentrate on work.  I can watch (listen really)  DNA analysts talk about DNA and stuff like that.

Politics: I can’t believe Democrats are worried so much about 4 people. ROFL. That is why they suck so much. Let them be. It’s four fucking people. Who gives a shit what they tweet? The Dems get what they deserve. 4 more years of Trump because they are too scared to do anything. I don’t feel bad for them at all. They are acting like fools for caring so much about FOUR people.

Have a nice week. 🙂 Thanks for reading. I’ll try to be back on Friday so I can be back on schedule, but I’m not sure about that.

The clouds are still here

COUNTDOWN: 19 days until my beach birthday vacation 🙂

I like the large print on this site, but I wonder how it looks on phones. I still can’t believe people go to websites on their phones! I only do it if I have no choice. But I know from my tarot site that people do visit on mobile browsers. Anyway, I wanted something basic, and purple is my favorite color, so here we go. I hate the red on this site, but I don’t know how to get rid of it. Have I mentioned that this blog is now at anotherparade.com? 🙂 But feel free to keep visiting the old address. Same site at both addresses.

I’m all for college being free and all. BUT I went to a community college for two years on scholarship and then went to a cheaper university for 3 years to lower my costs. (If I hadn’t changed my major, I would have only done 2 years at the university). If someone CHOOSES to go to a high priced college… WTF? Do you know how much better my life could be if I had gone to a more expensive school? I really wanted to go. I got accepted to the school. I could have gone. But I was smart enough to know I didn’t want school loans forever. C’mon people!! People act like they are entitled to go to any school they want and have no side effects. Ten years from now, college might be a right, but the last time I checked America doesn’t do it that way.

In the future, when college may be free, some people may not be able to go very far for school. Where are they going to live? I had a loan for that, and I went without food during the last days because my loans and financial aid ran out. I mean, I ate something once a day, but I couldn’t eat any of the cafeteria food that I really loved.

No one ever taught me about finances, but I could figure out going to an expensive college wasn’t smart. I knew that at 10 years old when I was thinking of becoming a veterinarian. Is all this fair? OF COURSE NOT. People without money always get screwed. It’s the American way.

And on a different topic, I guess people in prison should be allowed to vote. Maine and Vermont already allow it so why not do it for everyone else?

I have my second therapy appointment in about an hour. OH! The insurance company said I should only have to pay the copay. That’s great news, right? However, I also got TWO letters saying the service is not covered. So which is correct? SIGH!!! I still don’t know whether therapy is covered, but I did look at the benefit book, and it says video/online treatment is covered as long as I use the right company to pick a therapist from and of course I did. Besides, I don’t know of other companies that offer REAL online therapy. Meaning Talkspace and companies like that. I’ve read horror stories about how bad the therapy is on those sites.

In conclusion, I still have no idea whether this therapy is covered.

Election 2020: Buttigieg appears to be more moderate than I like. Damn. But I have high standards. It’s also very convenient that people are trying to say he’s racist. Yes, the white GAY man must be racist, and that’s why you don’t like him. 😉 I have no idea why the black police chief (sergeant or whoever) had to leave his job. Really odd. I’m curious, and I want facts.

Btw, a lot of people are racist. I’m sure some of the Dems running for president are racist. I just accept that as a given. I know some are annoyed by “identity politics.” Sanders admitted it about 6 months ago. Now he knows better than to say that shit out loud. I bet Biden is SICK of hearing about women and the crime bill and Anita Hill and blah, blah, blah. I bet he is so over it, but I have no proof.

At least Beto apologized for being white. ROFL. I’m joking. Well, Beto and others have sort of apologized for being white males. White people don’t need to go around being ashamed to be white (not that many even think about being white). I don’t mean to give anyone a pass, but is it Biden’s, Buttigieg’s, or Sanders’ fault that they are getting more media coverage than most of the women? I think it’s a HUGE mistake for Beto not to give press to cable news. He’ll learn the hard way. You can’t run for president as you ran for the Senate. Oh, and I loved how Sanders was groaned at by women of color when he mentioned marching with MLK Jr. I’m so glad I’m not the only one sick of that story. I’ve seen the pictures. I know the story. Um, good for him?

One more thing – Marianne Williamson has raised 1.2 million dollars! That is more than some of the men already in DC!! But she still doesn’t have enough people donating to be in the debate. I think she’ll get there. She has the money, but not enough supporters.

Wait…another thing. Some people are pissed that Biden used Charlottesville in his announcement. Especially people in Virginia. Sigh. When I heard rumors he was going to be talking about Charlottesville, I knew that that was going to be a mistake. I didn’t know that was going to be the whole freaking announcement! Only the Biden lovers were so in love with that announcement. A person in the media said it made her cry. Oh please! Don’t exploit Charlottesville. This is how people get called ‘out of touch,’ but whatever. Carry on.

In case, you’re new here, I usually do one LONG post a week. I used to blog about 3-4 times a week, but due to work, online classes and trying to start a business I can’t post that often so I always post here once a week.

This week I…

Music of the week: Beyonce, Jess Glynne, Jussie Smollett, Matt Nathanson, Tori Kelly, Ariana Grande, Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift

I thought Taylor Swift was releasing an album. All this hype for a single? 😦 Okay, I’ll wait for the album. Her albums are hit or miss, so I know not to be too excited.

TV of the week:  NBA Playoffs, How to Get Away With Murder

Podcasts of the week: True Crime Garage, So You Wanna Be a Witch, Pod Save America, The Lowe Post, The Water Trio, Living Open

Books of the week: Now reading – 

Weekend Plans: Uh, a lot. Working overtime on Saturday. My dog’s birthday is on Sunday, so we’re going to the park. I want to take my astrology test, but that’s not required. I have to take notes on another astrology class I’m taking. I want to get back into yoga desperately, so I’m going to do it in the backyard because it’s hard to find a class that fits my schedule. I wanted to blog more about yoga, but this post is so long!

I have to clean up and move things around because I had to buy a portable AC. $$$ It’s been 95 degrees in here, but only 85 outside. I kid you not! So I had to do something. I hope to get it installed by Monday or Tuesday.

I have therapy in 20 minutes. LOL. Instead of focusing on that, I’m doing this blog post. Anyway, thanks so much for reading. Have a great weekend! 🙂

I really want some comfort

Yay for Ben Jealous winning the Maryland primary for governor! And good for Oscario-Cortez for winning her primary. I hope they win in November. The good news ends there. 😉 I have to blog about Kennedy retiring. I already tweeted what I thought. Okay, maybe it’s not the end of the world. Maybe. I’m mostly concerned about the death penalty and gay rights.  I know most people are concerned with Roe v. Wade. Of course, other things will come up. Oh well. The people voted OR they didn’t vote, and they get what they deserve. Ouch, that’s harsh!

Yeah, most people voted for Hillary, but whatevs. Who cares about the popular vote? Who cares about voting at all? We should make it impossible for people to vote. Wait, are people already trying to do that? Gotta love America. Don’t forget there was no difference between Trump and Hillary.

/end political rant

Ugh. I shouldn’t be bitching about my “friend”. She’s a Facebook “friend”. We don’t know each other AT ALL. Anyway, she is addicted to online tarot readings.  Um, that would be great if she were paying people, but she is getting a bunch of free readings to help with a decision. I told her I would do one for her tomorrow because today has been really busy. I had a therapy appointment and an appointment with my tarot mentor. Plus, I have this thing called work.

Yeah, I feel kind of used (KIND OF??!) because she isn’t just getting free readings from me. She is getting them from a couple of other people too. I would recommend she learn Tarot for herself because it can be so helpful, but her life is hectic right now. It is NOT the time to recommend that. Not that I don’t still get readings from others. I always think someone may be more intuitive than me.

WOW. I just got off Zoom (just like Skype) with my tarot mentor. She is fucking fantastic! She is my role model. Can I be her? The conversation didn’t flow 100% perfectly because I’m me. But she was wonderful. That has to be the best money I have ever spent in my life. Her services are not cheap.

She’s going to email me the 90-minute video recording tomorrow. I can’t wait. If I had taken notes, it would have been pages and pages. I hope she wasn’t offended that I wasn’t taking a ton of notes. I knew she was going to send the recording to me and I am planning on taking notes on everything then.

We got through a lot for our first meeting. Thankfully I wrote down things I wanted to discuss ahead of time. One thing that scares me is that she says I can email her anytime during the 12 weeks. Um, I hate being a bother. I know I’m paying her, but I don’t like emailing people. I have to get over that if I want this to work better.

The only “bad” thing she mentioned is that I should start posting on my business Instagram. UGH. Double UGH. The thing is that I know next to nothing about advertising on Instagram. All I have on my business Instagram is a link to my biz site. LOL. I hope this doesn’t take all weekend. I had my weekend planned out…I guess things have changed. This is probably a good thing. I don’t know why I’m complaining. I just don’t have a lot of time to play around with Insta. I’m not that familiar with it. I just kind of know how to post pics. I’ll figure it out.

But YAY for the mentor meeting going great!!! I almost said her name by mistake. Eventually, her name will be on my biz website. She will be listed as my mentor when we are done. Oh, she also says I write so well. I can laugh, but you can’t. 😉 Wait until she sees my blog on my tarot website. That isn’t written so well. I’m struggling over there.

I’ll have more to say about therapy later. It’s not going great. :/

This week I…

Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Demi Lovato, Alanis Morissette, Halsey, Janelle Monae, Florence + The Machine, Christina Aguilera, Kacey Musgraves, The Bird and the Bee

TV of the week:  This is Us, Big Brother

What a tear jerker the second season of This is Us is. I find myself crying whenever someone faces racism on the show…especailly the young kids. Maybe I have some issues there. Big Brother is okay so far. Loved the first show, wasn’t crazy about the second night. I like Sam. Unfortunately, the rest of the house doesn’t love her so she might not last. 😦

Movie of the week: none.

Podcasts of the week: Missing  & Murdered: Finding Cleo, So You Wanna Be a Witch, The Biddy Tarot Podcast, The Lowe Post, Why is This Happening?

Books of the week: I finished reading What the Truth Sounds Like: Robert. F Kennedy, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America by Michael Eric Dyson. Good book. Started off great with the history lesson. But I thought he talked about Cornel West too much. Maybe that’s my bias because I don’t care about the Dyson/West beef. Let it go.

Now reading (too many books to mention, but I will list a few) –

Plans for the weekend: Working, working, and other shit I don’t really want to do. LOL. On Saturday, I’m working 5 hours of OT, paying bills, cooking for the week, doing my July budget, and I will probably work on learning the tarot through notecards. Oh, I already forgot that I have to do that reading for my Facebook “friend.”  It’ll take less than an hour because she has already taken up a lot of my time. I don’t usually call people vampires (okay, I NEVER do), but she’s draining me. I hope she resolves whatever is going on, so I don’t have to deal with her constantly asking for free readings.

On Sunday, I’m taking my dog to the park first thing in the morning; then I’m taking my dad grocery shopping. I might offer to do 1 or 2 free readings. I feel like the weekends are the only time I have to practice. When I’m off the week of July 30th, I may do a lot of free readings, or I may redo my website. Who knows where things will be then?

Those are my exciting weekend plans. It’s going to be so hot this weekend. I have this small patch of lawn I haven’t mowed yet. It would only take 20 minutes or less, but it’s too damn hot. It doesn’t look like it will cool off. I’m probably going to mow it Monday during my lunch break.

Have a great weekend. Thanks so much for reading! Stay cool. 🙂

pretend I’m not real

I had to stop watching cable news. Now I’m watching CSPAN and learning things. I love BookTV.  Before MSNBC existed, all I did was watch CSPAN. I can’t stand all this Trump talk…so I will blog about Trump. 🙂 All of this talk of him dropping out is making me nervous. I know it is unlikely to happen, but what if? Don’t scare me. Hillary is a weak candidate. If Trump had done things right, he could’ve won. I know there are still 90+ days left so he could turn it around.

There was a popular column in The Washington Post asking, “Is Donald Trump Crazy?” and then other journalists started asking it. Um, no. I don’t see crazy there. He is a liar, and he may be narcissistic. But crazy? Where are people getting this stuff? (I respect the columnist, btw). Trump just talks a lot and lies constantly. I know people like that, and I don’t consider them crazy so I won’t call Trump crazy. Am I too literal? Perhaps. Just call him what he is. No need to exaggerate.

I’m supposed to be looking for a PT job, but I’m taking a break. ha. I just can’t.  I don’t know. I don’t care. I’ll get back into it. I enjoyed this past week of only working at my full-time job. I love staying at home…too much. As of right now, the plan is to go to a temp agency or two on my days off in 2 weeks. But of course, I have other things I want to do on my days off. Fun stuff like taking my dog to the park and not so fun stuff like getting an oil change or tune up.

I’m doing a bunch of unboxings on Snapchat (kat3x5) this weekend. I go for weeks forgetting that Snapchat exists, and then I use it a little too much.

One more thing before “what I did this week”. My therapist. I am now paying $50 a month for therapy. It’s not working. 50% of it is my fault, of course. I feel like my real problems are urgent, and she’s talking about other shit. She’s WASTING MY TIME and money. This has to get better next week, or I will have to go back to once a month or consider quitting. WHY did I go back to her? Why? Ugh.

I think I’m going to consider doing online therapy through work. I get six free sessions. I can do therapy with two therapists, right?  I’ll probably do it. Maybe I will quit IRL therapy for online therapy. Right now that sounds divine.

This week I…

Music of the week:  Alessia Cara, Ariana Grande, Rachel Platten, Ellie Goulding, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, K. Michele, Kanye West

Song of the week: Alessia Cara – Scars to Your Beautiful

TV of the week:  Grey’s Anatomy, Big Brother

I do not love Big Brother this season. I like everyone, but I don’t care who wins.

Movie of the week: none

Books of the week: I quit reading Along Came a Spider by James Patterson. Too many characters. Fiction has to be great for me to read it. Now I’m reading two nonfiction books:

Planner update: Plans for August 1 – August 7 in my Erin Condren neutral planner

DSCN0118 (2)

Plans for the Weekend: My dad is still here. He was supposed to leave for the Philippines on August 1. I might take him to the grocery store this weekend. I sorted all the clothes from the auction. Now I have to get rid of the hangers. What else? Not much going on. That is a good thing. Next week will be busier than this past week.

Have a nice weekend. 🙂

You left me kneeling

The auction. WOW. I won so many things; I could not fit it all into my car, and I have a decent sized car. It’s a typical four-door. I had to leave things at the store because I had a doctor’s appointment and couldn’t go back to empty my car and pick up the other stuff. I felt bad about leaving my stuff, but I did pay for it, so it’s my loss. I previously said I won over 100 things. Uh, nope. I  got over 300 items. I kid you not.

A lot of the clothes and purses are good quality. Most of the clothes are from Old Navy, Charlotte Russe, Kohls, Target, etc. There were a few Coach bags in the mix too.  I’m currently separating things into keeping (for me), keeping for others (mostly my mom), and donate. I thought I would have to donate most of the clothes, but I’m keeping about 65% of the items.


My dad says choosing between Trump and Clinton is like choosing between the lesser of two evils. LOL. He is like everyone else! I agree too.  I’ve been thinking a lot about what has happened during the last eight years with income inequality. If a Democrat can’t fix it (it got worse), what would a Republican do? Nothing, right? Forget this. The real problem is people not voting in local elections. The president doesn’t matter if things at the local level are a mess.

Maybe one day there won’t be a two party system. But there aren’t enough progressives to break away and form a formidable party. I would be down with that. 🙂 I would love not to have to vote for the Democrat. I’m way more progressive than Hillary. Way more. But we have a two system party and blah, blah.

At least I get to vote for Kaine since he’s on the ticket. YAY! He’s going to be in VA on Monday. I wanna go. But I don’t think they have a location picked yet. It is probably during the day. Wahhh! 😦 He’ll be back. As of right now, there is NO info on the event in the local paper. Weird. I saw it in The Washington Post.

Update: I found the event info on Hillary’s website. Um, it is from 5 to 8 PM. I’m too old for this ish. Why is it so long? LOL. At least, it isn’t during the day. I wanna go. I should go, right? Sigh. I might try to go and just see how long the line is. Kaine is pretty popular here. Still thinking. I’ve never been to a political event. I went to pick up tickets to see Michelle Obama, but then work happened. As of right now, I’m planning on going. I was so happy about not having to go anywhere next week. Change of plans? I just RSVP’d, but that doesn’t mean anything.

Update #2: Now my mom is coming with me to see Kaine. I guess it is happening. My mom doesn’t even like Kaine that much. Whatevs. At least, I won’t be there for hours by myself.

People can say what they want about Kaine, but he did a good job as governor and in the Senate and a great job as mayor of Richmond. So what if he’s goofy? He’s the nicest man on earth. What’s so wrong with that? I do have a problem with his position on the Hyde Amendment. I don’t agree with him at all. Hillary wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment while Kaine “personally” supports it. Ick. I guess nobody is perfect.

in 1976, Congress passed the Hyde Amendment, which banned Medicaid coverage of abortion. This is the only medical procedure that has ever been banned from Medicaid. What’s more, Medicaid covers other reproductive health care needs, including birth control and sterilization. And the vast majority of private insurance plans cover abortion, too.

This week I…

Music of the week:  Anna Nalick, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, India.Arie, Priory, Jennifer Nettles

TV of the week:  Grey’s Anatomy, Big Brother, Democratic Convention

I fell asleep and missed all of President Obama. I missed the second half of Hillary. Overall, I thought it was a great convention. I didn’t think I would say that, but there were moving moments. I even cried. Why am I admitting this?

Movie of the week: none

Books of the week: Still reading Along Came a Spider by James Patterson. I’m on page 215.

Planner update: Plans for July 25 – July 31 in my Erin Condren neutral planner

erincondren

Plans for the Weekend: I just want to scream because there are clothes EVERYWHERE. I ran out of trash bags. I’m sick of sorting, so I’ve stopped for today. I will finish sorting everything by Sunday.

I have nowhere to put this so I’ll randomly put this here: I went in for a health screening for my health insurance today and for the first time in a few years, my blood pressure was normal. NORMAL! yay. 118 over 78. Amazing. What’s going on? Is it because I have a treadmill now? I don’t use it every day. On average, I use it about 15-20 days out of a month.

My stats (including cholesterol, glucose levels, etc.) were so good; she thought I was an athlete. ROFL. Me? Athlete? hahaha. All I do is occasionally get on my treadmill. Maybe the blood pressure thing was a fluke. I’m shocked.

I’m 5’6″ and weigh 129 pounds. I should weigh 125 since I’m on Nutrisystem, but I keep cheating. 😦 Anyway, I’m glad that went well. Going to screenings helps me save money on health insurance. I could save even more if I got a flu shot, but I’ve never had a flu shot, and I never will get one.

Gotta go. I wish I could sort more clothing, but I need trash bags, and I’m not going to the store until tomorrow morning. So I’m going to chill tonight. Have a great weekend. Thanks for reading.

It’s not any fun

Well, it looks like I didn’t get the job. It probably wasn’t only the two-week notice issue, but I’m telling you they really need someone ASAP. He promised to email me. All I wanted was an email.

I’m done with wallowing and listening to Anna Nalick on repeat. I used to listen to Anna Nalick when I was working in the office and needed some comfort on my way to and from work. Now I’m going to listen to Jewel and India.Arie. It’s time to move on. It wasn’t meant to be. I probably would have hated it due to all the auditing. But I can’t be sure. I get audited at my current job (but it isn’t as bad).

I just wanted an email saying “Sorry, we didn’t choose you.” That’s it. Oh well. I’m not actively looking for full-time jobs as of this moment. It depends on how I feel about my full-time job on whatever day.


Should I talk politics or auction? I haven’t done an auction in a long time. Maybe a year? Anyway, I went to see the stuff on Saturday, and I decided to bid on a ton of stuff. I didn’t expect to win it! LOL. Oops. I won over 100 items. Most of this stuff will be donated to the Red Cross. That’s the good news. I will keep only the purses I know I will use and the clothes I can wear. The Red Cross will pick up in my area in August, so I will have the other clothes and purses in trash bags, ready to donate.

I got really good deals. I’m talking $1.00 for eight purses. $2.00 for eight skirts. etc.  I paid $47 for things I’m going to mostly donate, but I do get to keep some stuff for myself. I’m picking up the items on Wednesday before my therapy appointment. I should probably talk about therapy and how I’m not sure I want to continue, but I’ll give it one more shot.

I have real issues, and all she wants to talk about is social anxiety. Social anxiety does affect job stuff, so it does affect my life. But I have other issues too. I think I’m going to make a list of what is really bothering me before I see her this time.


Bernie supporters are getting on my nerves again. I don’t like Hillary or Trump either. But I do have a soft spot for Kaine. Did you see all my tweets on him? I wanted to tweet more, but I held myself back. 🙂 Clinton picking Kaine saved my weekend. It really did. I just didn’t believe she would do it. No, he’s not the most progressive, but neither is Hillary. They’re a match!

Voter turnout will be pretty low this year since most don’t like either candidate. This is great news for people who can’t wait or hate waiting.  However, where I live turnout will be pretty high and who didn’t ask for election day off? ARGH. I hope it isn’t too bad. It’s probably too early to worry about election day.

I’m just pissed because I wanted a nice Democratic National Convention and the Bernie ^%$%ers are ruining it. I empathize with them, but I don’t see the point in booing people. Have some class.

The DNC emails were pretty bad, but that is to be expected in politics…especially when dealing with the Clintons. ROFL. Sorry.


I’m going to go now. I’m so tired even though I just took a nap. I hope work goes better tomorrow. Some of our systems were down today, and I didn’t get much done. That frustrates me so much. Anyway, I’m going to try not to fall asleep while watching the DNC tonight. #Goals

I wish I were a stick

I feel bad for Bernie. Hell, I even feel bad for Jeb. That’s just how I am. Hillary is going to be the Democratic nominee. After Super Tuesday, it might be over. Shock me, Bernie! I want this to drag out. Sort of.

Hillary has a 12 point lead where I live. That isn’t that much.  Bill came here on Wednesday. I’m not a Bill Clinton fan due to his policies, but I don’t hate him. If it were at another venue, I would have gone. I still don’t know whether I’m voting on Tuesday. I have a doctor’s appointment the next day. Leaving my house two days in a row??! I really don’t want to. Woe is me.

RADICAL OPINION ALERT: I wish Obama could close Guantanamo Bay on his own. I have been waiting for him to do it for seven years. It couldn’t get through Congress, of course. So I no longer blame him for it being open. Closing Gitmo is the right thing to do.

That’s enough on current events.

Countdown time!

58 days until the Tori Kelly concert (!!)

82 days until my Asheville vacay

106 days until the Ellie Goulding concert

When I think about the concerts,  I start freaking out.  I haven’t paid for parking for the Tori concert yet. I need to do that. DAR Constitution Hall is one minute away from The White House! I had no idea, so I probably have seen the building. I might have even been inside the museum.  The last time I was at the White House was during W’s last year of being president. (not IN the White House). I would like to go to the White House during this short visit. I’m not sure I’m going to have time, but I’ll try.

This week I…

Music of the week:  India.Arie, The 1975, Jewel, Lissie, Troye Sivan, Tori Kelly, Leon Larregui, Rihanna

Song of the week: Demi Lovato – Stone Cold

TV of the week: Mad Men, basketball, politics, politics, politics

Movie of the week: And Then There Were None (1945) Well, I haven’t finished it yet, but I’m almost done. I know it was made in 1945…um, not a good movie. They even changed some of the characters names from the book! I would love to know why. Some of the acting is over the top. I thought I would love it because I loved the book and I love old movies. I would like to see the 2015 version, but I can’t find it anywhere. It’ll probably be on TV soon.

Books of the week: I finished  And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I want to say it was the best book ever, but there is a reason why I stopped reading mysteries. I grew up on mysteries. I was a Nancy Drew girl. I read Mary Higgins Clark. But now mysteries just don’t interest me anymore. I can usually figure out what will happen. What’s the fun it that?

I did enjoy this book and I want to read more Agatha Christie, but it didn’t live up to the hype. The book reminded me a lot of Clue. Clue is one of my favorite movies. Most would call it a guilty pleasure. If you love that movie, you must read this book. Anyhow, very good book, but not excellent. I’m glad I read it. Mysteries aren’t my thing anymore, and that is why I didn’t enjoy it as much as most people did.

Now reading:

Planner update: I didn’t decorate my planner last week so I’m not sure there will be anything here this weekend. I will probably stop adding this to the section. Now I’m doing more functional planning and less decorating.

We have a tornado warning!!! gotta go.
