I’m known for going though some serious phases, but in my defense, I grew a lot as a person while trying out different interests. There are still boxes of plastic, fake food in the basement from when I was eight and obsessed with becoming a chef. Some might even say that this desire to blog is just another to add to the incredibly long list of phases I’ve gone through over the years (I really hope not). Some “phases” do indeed stick though, so here’s hoping Under the Microscope is one of them.
MY CURRENT OBSESSIONS:
1. Gossip Girl
I’m nuts about this show. Whenever Monday night rolls around, homework is ignored and all responsibilities vanish during that one hour of bliss. The clothing alone would keep me coming back week after week, but I just can’t get enough of Chuck and Blair.
2. The Selby
A post on Binky’s Alternate Reality introduced me to this website with pictures of “interesting people in their creative spaces” and now I’m hooked. For as long as I can remember I’ve been collecting materials and ideas for when I get my own personal space, and this website has so many wonderful ideas I can take and make my own.
3. How-to videos
If you don’t know, someone else does. YouTube has become my best friend lately as I’ve gotten more and more obsessed with learning how to do pretty much anything. Thanks to YouTube’s vast how-to library, I now know how to tie a tie, cook lasagna, and draw cartoons.
The boyfriend and I recently started recording our drives to school, adventures, etc. for no particular reason. I’m not really sure if anyone else does this, but it’s similar to vlogs (minus the video part of course). There has been some hilarious audio recordings created that’ll be interesting to listen to a few years from now. We have yet to decide what we are going to do with these recordings, but the boyfriend and I are obsessed with making them.
5. Ben Folds feat. Regina Spektor – “You Don’t Know Me”
I used this song in my “Life’s Soundtrack” post, and to my dismay I’ve become even more obsessed with it since then (One guess what song I’m listening to right now). This song is amazing for no particular reason. It just is. It’s one of those songs that you can explain why you love it, but you know that you’re different now than you were before you heard it. Listen to it. Seriously.
What I should write next is all I can think about (I’m thinking about it now even). Forget doing that silly history homework, there’s a more pressing matter at hand whether to create another “Appearances” or “Art Forms” post. I’ve become addicted to this blog, and I’m totally ok with it.
There are numerous others, but these are clearly leading the pack to attract the bulk of my attention.
