I haven’t done one of these in a long while, but I used to adore doing these concise little run downs of the things I enjoy. So, without any further ado, I present my findings of this last week! Woo!
NCIS (Navy Criminal Investigative Service):
This show is so addictive! The snarky characters and intricate plot twists keep pulling me back in and I’m not being as productive as I’d like to be because this show is occupying all my spare time. It’s not conducive to getting anything done, but I am seriously hooked. There are 12 seasons on Netflix, so be prepared to not accomplish anything for the next few weeks! You’ll like this show if you enjoy things along the lines of Bones, Psych, Person of Interest, or anything in the category of crime.
Theory of a Deadman:
This band is absolutely one of my favorites! They are a fantastic semi-hard rock group, but they’ve done some astoundingly beautiful acoustic versions of their music, and I can’t get enough. My favorite album from them at the moment is Scars & Souvenirs (‘Not Meant to Be’ and ‘Santa Monica’ are really lovely). I highly recommend them, so long as you don’t fear some wicked guitar and great vocals! Also, this week I’ve been grooving on ‘Young Blood’ by The Naked and Famous, along with the song ‘Free Bird’ by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Gotta love the classics!
My Konjac Sponge:
This little skin care item has made such a drastic improvement in my skin, clearing it up in a matter of days. I wrote a whole blog post about it that you can read here if you’re interested!
Laying off the Caffeine:
I’m one of those people that really thrives on having a nice caffeine buzz humming in my veins throughout the day. I don’t exactly need the caffeine, but I’m so used to reaching for Diet Coke and coffee (I was a barista and some habits have to die hard). I’ve actually been drinking a lot of hot water (like you’d use to make tea), which I know is strange, but it’s really soothing for me and thoroughly enjoy it; I also like to add lemon wedges occasionally. Though I have taken to drinking it in a travel coffee mug because people give you weird looks when they see you drinking a steam cup of water.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy:
I’m taking this super interesting, but intense, course class A.P. Russian Literature this semester. Our first read is a 900 page behemoth by the name of Anna Karenina. I honestly love reading in general, but I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. His writing style is really soothing and the characters are dynamic and relatable. I highly recommend it, but it’s quite the endeavor to get through, so I recommend reading it a few chapters (they’re about 3 pages long each) at a time But it’s so worth the effort!
I hope you all enjoyed this Friday Five!
