Well, apparently this is my first outfit post of 2014. I think I've told myself every day this week that I would take outfit photos, but somehow it just hasn't happened. It's really just because I'm lazy in the mornings and don't actually get in the shower until noon, and then I'm busy doing something with friends until it gets too dark to take photos. I'm pretty bummed that I haven't been able to make much time for blogging, but I guess that means that I actually have a life/friends who are willing to spend time with me, so at least that's something. As for the outfit though, something about it feels a little different for me, but I love it. I've been looking for a new utility jacket for a while now, and my good friend Alena bought this one for me as a Christmas present while we were out shopping. I love it that it's slightly more unique than most of the other ones I see due to the multiple shades of green. Plus, this cropped sweater is kind of the best.
Enough about my clothes though (what is this? A fashion blog?), I want to talk about entertainment. I've been spending most of time seeing movies, and they've dominated most of my conversations as well. Last week, I saw American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street, both of which I enjoyed (More so American Hustle, though). This week, however, my friends and I went to a theater a little out of the way that shows limited release movies, where I saw possibly my two favorite films of the year (since they both technically came out in 2013) — Inside Llewyn Davis and Her. I'm a big fan of the directors of each (the Coen brothers and Spike Jonze, respectively), and both were like breaths of fresh air after what felt like a lackluster year of movies. I can't stop listening to the soundtrack from Inside Llewyn Davis, and Her just blew me away. I can't recommend either of them enough.
While I'm on the subject of entertainment, I should also mention the important matter of Community returning last night with Dan Harmon finally at the helm again. My life is complete again.
As if there was ever a chance of me writing a short post, I suppose I should also mention Christmas and all that jazz since I haven't actually posted much since. I had a great, if uneventful, holiday with my family, and I'm sad that it's over already. My parents surprised me with a new laptop for my combined Christmas and early graduation present (it's a Lenovo, "a big girl computer," according to my mom). I'm so relieved to have a computer that doesn't freeze up on me every two minutes and one that doesn't feel like it could die at any moment. I also got that adorable fox tote on my list, some graphic novels I wanted, an adorable scarf, and plenty of Starbucks gift cards among other things. My family treats me well. New Years Eve was pretty boring, but it's never been one of my favorite holidays, so I'm okay with that.
I really am hoping to blog more soon, and I'm starting to come up with some ideas that I'd like to make happen this year. In addition to outfits, I think I'm going to start having more personal posts and more entertainment-focused ones as well. I'd also like to focus a bit more on journalism, and I'm hoping to write more about some of my favorite Etsy shops and the people behind them. I already have a few in mind that I'd like to write about, but if you shop you'd like to be interviewed about, please don't hesitate to send me an email and I'll take a look!
