If you are not in school for the summer or just taking a summer off, you are probably wondering how to spend your summer not sitting on the couch watching Food Network. I am in the same boat; I don’t currently have a full time job and I do not school until August, but instead of moping about it I am trying to do something about it. Here are some of the techniques I am using to quell those…
So, the Vogue team met Grumpy Cat in Austin at SXSW and Grumpy Cat made such an impression on them that they decided to invite her to Vogue in honor of her second birthday, which is tomorrow. Check back tomorrow for Grumpy’s birthday surprise on Vogue.com!
As all you lovely people know, I haven’t had regular internet on my personal laptop for awhile now. Well that has changed; thank god! And to get back into the swing of things, we are starting with a wonderful “Media Monday!” Basically I am going to go through everything I loved over the past couple of months via the interwebs, music, and anything else I can think of.
I have become a game freak on my phone. It is ridiculous. My top game: Candy Crush. Yes hit me now, but I never send out requests; promise! I have managed to get to level 65. The next app I love is Poshmark; I found it via one of my fellow merchandisers. It is an app that you can create online parties to sell items that you don’t want anymore. You can find some awesome deals on here. My Twitter app on the computer has been a life saver, since I only have wired internet now I can keep up with my Twitter feeds and able to post anytime I want.
Music has been my saving grace with a world without internet. I was able to re-download a majority of my library while in Australia, so I didn’t have the same thing to listen to over and over again.
My top new albums:
Body Music by AlunaGeorge - One of her songs was free iTunes, listened to it, and decided to buy the whole album. Favorite Song: Kaleidoscope Love
Paradise Valley by John Mayer - Besides that I am absolutely in love with this man, his albums keep getting better and better. Favorite song: You’re No One ‘Til Someone Lets You Down
The Music from Nashville (Vol 1 & 2) - I started watching this show before I left the States, but now that I have internet I have downloaded season 1 and fell in love again. I am secretly a country fan; I know strange. Favorite Songs: Undermine (Vol 1) & I Will Fall (Vol 2)
Soundtrack from Spring Breakers - I know a strange mix of music, but for some reason club-esque, dub step music is what I need right now. Get me in a good mood. Favorite song: Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites by Skillrex
Movies & TV shows
Just going to get this out of the way now: movies have saved me during this deployment. Just to relax I have watched so many movies and re-watched some of my favorite shows.
The Great Gatsby
The Vampire Diaries
The Secret Circle
Game of Thrones
Unfortunately books have not been a priority while having down time.
The Mortal Instruments Series
A Modern Witch Series
The Devil Wears Prada
Honestly between work and vacation I haven’t really had time to sit and think and do anything for myself. Here is hoping the next few months go by fast.
