Monday after an intense Netflix binge got me like…
Month: January 2016
Can I be real with yall for a second? I’m not 100% pleased with the candidate choices this year. Obviously more so with the GOP because it’s a nuthouse over there. Don’t even get me started on Trump. Or Palin…?! (get out of here this isn’t 2008! you’re 2000 and late gurl)
One of the major issues in this election is over gun control. I would love for everyone to stop being cray and realize what the second amendment is. Hi quick history lesson for the entire nation who I guess slept through it multiple times in their life: The second amendment was for regular citizens who formed the militia when needed. Because we were a baby country who didn’t supply the militia with guns so they brought their own.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Are you part of the US militia? No, then go away. The second amendment was not for you to be able to carry a hand gun into Kroger’s. (seriously why?)
Answer to the nation’s problem:
Enter the most perfect human ever, Kiernan Shipka. Yes she’s forever younger than me at 16, but anyone who can pull off this outfit deserves respect. Also she always knows whats up on the food scene. Thank you Kiernan Shipka for introducing me to Sqirl and the delicious rice breakfast bowl and brioche toast <3 (seriously go bc their brioche toast is to die for)
Top candidate Kiernan Shipka hangs out with more knowledgeable people (Amanda Stenberg) than half the other candidates and has good international diplomacy, as seen here with NZ native, Lorde (bow down)
That is all. Case closed. Bye haters.
My yoga studio has launched our 40 Days to Personal Revolution on Sunday and I’m pumpedddd. 40 days is based off Baron Baptiste’s book (see here) and it outlines the entire process.This guy is always wearing a bandanna, definitely rocks his own style and I dig it. You do you Baron.
The program includes daily meditation (2x a day), daily journaling (of your yoga practice, what you eat, feelings that come up), and daily yoga practice (6 out of 7 days a week). It’s pretty transformative and I love the community it builds within the studio, we are all doing this crazy thing together and know what each other is dealing with. Plus all the fun workshops!
It’s officially day three and I’ve planned out all my yoga classes for the week. Today is Forrest with my girl Connie :)
I’m really excited to see how it all goes and hope I don’t collapse by the end of the week! More updates to come
From Sense and Sensibility to Robin Hood to HP, Alan Rickman I loved in you them all. Idk how this man never got nominated for an oscar. I call shananigans. Who else could make you love a character who in the book is a straight up psychopath and you’re like wtf dumbles how could you let this man near children?????! Enter one beautiful Alan Rickman. Game changer.
Can we all take a moment to remember how JK Rowling told him a secret about Snape’s character that he never revealed?! I always said if anything were to happen I would want him as my secret keeper bc he fo’ sho’ knows how to keep one!
Our main man was also an advocate for the HP books:
The movie looked silly and I thought the book couldn’t be much better. That is until I read this review and my mind did a 180.
The Martian by Andy Weir centers around Mark Watney who is accidentally (serious bad luck man) left on Mars after his crew thinks he is dead. He needs to survive on the planet with limited resources for 4 years until the next mission. Question is, how? For Mark Watney the answer is clear: potatoes. Guys, without Watney’s crazy thoughts/inner dialouge this book (and I assume movie) would be nothing. Some might ask why is this dude cracking all these jokes when he’s going to die fo’ sho? Wouldn’t you? I could only hope I was as funny as this guy when I’m stranded on an alien planet!
Favorite Quotes from my main man Mark:
“Fear my botany powers!”
“Godspeed, little taters.”
The Martian is a surprisingly quick read! I became so invested in the main character I didn’t mind all the sciencey talk. I would have loved a longer ending but I get that it’s just not the style the book was about and you got to stick to what is true to the book. The Martian is hilarious! I definitely recommend, especially if you plan to watch the movie!!
Goodreads Average Review: 4.38
My Official Review: 4/5
My love for David Bowie goes back a ways from growing up watching the best/weirdest movie, Labyrinth. So many questions. Why did he decide to make this movie where he is only working with puppets? Why the hair? Why the spandex and enhanced package when it’s a children’s movie? Does Jennifer Connelly have the best brows of all time? Why is all the music so good?!
Questions that will never have answers.
I love how he got to fulfill his life long ambition of creating a (mostly) successful musical and dropped another album out of nowhere on Friday. Whaaat he is the most mysterious and I love it. I still remember going into Whole Foods and seeing The Next Day at the check out counter and had no idea what was happening (obvs buying it immediately). He is everything. May we all be a little more Ziggy and a whole lot more mysterious, minus the feathered hair please :)
Still confused (for life) about the (illegal) love story line between Sarah and the Goblin King but then again…
Farewell you strange, strange, beautiful man. Goblin King 4ever <3
