Life & Nonsense Etc. #6Sunday, 25 January 2015
It feels like it's been a while since I've done one of these - in fact, the last post was in October, yikes. Time really does fly, doesn't it?
I've definitely been out of the blogging loop lately, which kinda gets me down sometimes, but I constantly think about ideas and videos I want to film, so whenever I get the chance, I will definitely try harder at working on getting these ideas on this little space!
I honestly feel like my life lately has just been work, work, work. When the weekend comes, I always feel like I have a million things to do, and sometimes feel like I'm not properly resting. This weekend was fantastic - it was hot, and I bought an adult sized blow up swimming pool, which I'm quite sure was the best idea I've ever had! Laying in the sun, submerged in water, and drinking margaritas - what could be better?
While everything has been a little mellow and streamlined lately, I did have something rather unfortunate happen to me last week. My house got robbed, while I was inside, and it's left me a little unsettled (read: seriously, locks-the-doors-twice-and-slept-with-a-knife-the-first-night paranoid). Basically, I was in my living room when I heard a noise in my bedroom and when I got up to check, I saw someone emerge out of my bedroom and run down the hall. I yelled and chased him out and was overcome with a rather scary panic attack, after which I had to deal with the fact that my wallet and cash was stolen from my bedroom, and he had used a credit card that was in my wallet (among other things, gah). Police were called, statements were taken, but at the end of the day, we all know he won't get caught. Lessons learnt: lock your doors kids. There are desperate people in the world.
On the upside, I am planning two sneaky overseas trips this year, and I'm beyond excited. More to come on that LATER.
The trouble with not blogging for several months is you forget what's happened. I do know that since getting Foxtel, my life has been a blur of trashy reality shows and weather documentaries, so I can't really I've seen too many fantastic movies or tv shows recently (insert crying laughter emoji - truth).
I did watch St Vincent recently though - amazing movie. I'm a massive Bill Murray fan, so naturally I jumped to watch this ASAP, and it did not disappoint. It was a lot funnier than I was expecting it to be, but at the same time extremely moving and clever. Bill Murray's character cracked me up, that man is a genius.
I've also downloaded The Rover, as I have a soft spot for Australian movies or anything filmed in Australia - I also have a soft spot for Guy Pearse and Robert Pattinson both, how could I resist? I've not had time to watch it but it looks visually stunning, and I love dystopian type movies so I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Has anyone watched it? It's next weeks plan.
Since having full access to Foxtel for my first month, I took advantage of the Boxset channel, where they had the entire series of Love My Way. I love this show, and I've already watched all three seasons a few times, but I really wanted to watch it again. If you're unfamiliar, it's an Australian drama starring Asher Keddie, Claudia Karvan, and Brendan Cowell to name a few names, and it's just...amazing. It sucks you in, and the end of Season 1 will have you absolutely bawling your eyes out. I always forget how sad it is. It is one of the few shows I highly recommend - it's truly a gem.
I really feel like I have so much more to tell you, but I'm currently drawing a blank! Feel like I have a lot of #firstworldproblems lately - my current dilemma is 'Do I cut my hair?'. Every long haired girls problem, right? I blame LLYMLRS, as I am currently in LOVE with her hair. Tough decision to make, as I mostly love having long hair! I know, the struggle is real.
Any recommendations for new shows, or movies? Books? Blogs? I'm open to all - I'm in a rut lately. Boo hoo.
