Okay, so there's this new thing in my life that I'm not entirely proud of. And if I'm granting full disclosure, it's not even new.
I have the Sims 3 on my iPod... and it's too much fun to put down. I've always loved the sims series, and the tycoon series as well, really any game where I get to create and edit a world and then have achievements and goals and the like to show my progress is golden to me. So the fact that Sims 3: Ambitions has become really addicting really fast should surprise exactly no one. However, I'm taking a break from (alright... simultaneously working on...) my Sim life in order to update my real blog about my real life. Here's what has happened in the past week:
1. I stared reading Paper Towns by John Green. I know- not at all the book I said I was going to read, but I brought it with me on vacation and couldn't put it down. I'm not done with it yet, but a few more reading sessions (hopefully today on the train in and out of the city...) and I should be done! I shall report back once I'm done, and then I guess it's time for another non-fiction book. No. Cheating.
2. My writing challenge starts tomorrow. I still have no idea what I'm going to do for it, all I know is that I'm going to be writing daily. I've gotten some good suggestions, and I really like them, but I can't decide between them AND my own ideas. *harumph*
3. Started cutting out the patterns for Jeremy's Jedi Costume. Next time we're both in Stamford, I need to measure him to double check that he really needs an extra large and not a large (I think he'll only need a medium, but he doesn't believe me...) and then I will start pinning and cutting the fabric. W00t!
4. We watched Lady and the Tramp. I forgot how much I enjoy that movie, which is to say a LOT. I really need to review the movies I've been watching. I also saw Kung-Fu Panda II in 3D and it was surprisingly awesome.
I've got to head out to my interview in the city. Wish me luck!
