My musings.

It’s Saturday afternoon and I just sat outside with my laptop and leftover thai hoping to enjoy some afternoon sun. It’s windy out, but not unbearable like my mum said it would be, but I’m pushing through the cold trying to enjoy the little time I’ve got before I have to leave for work. I’ve got a lush face mask on, coconut oil in my hair, and a cigarette in one hand. I hate the fact that I still smoke, but I’m only on my 4th today so I’m cutting back (for now) and proud of myself for that. Last night was the world premiere of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Out of all time zones, I think Australia got the the best pick of the lot. It aired at 7pm and I finished watching by 1.30am, so I didn’t have to stay up any ridiculous hours to watch it. I’ve been a fan of Gilmore Girls for as long as I can remember, and have rewatched more than 9 times now. Yesterday was spent …

Podcasts I want to listen to.

I am not a very productive person. Sometimes I go through spurts of productivity but the rest of the time I am pretty much rolling around my house like a potato searching for food or sweating my ass off in the kitchen at work. I’m really good at wasting my time – which is why I haven’t managed to actually listen to any podcasts that I’ve been meaning to for years (apart from a few episodes) So today I’m going to write a list of some podcasts I want to listen to – mainly so I can reference it in the future! But also, you guys might find it interesting, so who knows! (bio’s taken from podbay.fm) SERIAL – Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life, hosted by Sarah Koenig Serial tells one story – a true story – over the course of a season. Each season, we follow a plot and characters wherever they take us. We won’t know what happens at the end until we get there, not long before you get there …

Life get’s tough.

In September I challenged myself to post content on this blog every single day. I see a lot of people online making similar promises (whether it be on youtube or a blog) and then giving up. I always wondered how they couldn’t complete it. Is it really that difficult to do something for 30 days straight? And well, the answer is yes. A lot can change in a month. My life has kind of gone a bit haywire at the moment and I’m not positive when things will begin to calm down again. I am reading! Slowly but surely I am reading, but with everything else happening at the moment I know I can’t promise content every day or a new review every week, so I need to admit to myself that nows not the time. I hope everything calms down soon(ish) and I can get back to normal. But for now I’m going to keep on reading and sourcing inspiration for this blog. In the meantime, I’ll always be on goodreads and instagram so give them …

On rereading

I’m posting every single day in September! Go here to check out everything I’ve talked about so far! Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about my reading habits. And the fact that I have not reread a book consciously in a few years now. As a child I used to savour reading my favourite books. I would not only spend my time fully immersing into the story, but I would reread my favourite books over and over again until I knew them cover to cover. I cherished my reading time. Nowadays? Not so much. Don’t get me wrong – reading is still an incredibly large and important part of my life. But in a different way. Over the past couple of years I have read upwards of 50 books a year with the hopes that each and every one of them will become a new favourite that I hope to reread for the rest of my life. I intend to reread my favourites time and time again and yet…. I don’t. In the past few years I have reread …
