The Weekender

The Weekender: 3 January


Here it is, the very first Weekender of 2015. There really wasn’t much in the way of interesting news this week with the New Year rolling in, but I managed to find some fairly interesting tidbits to share.

The Weekender: 11 October


Nothing new in the way of personal bits this week. I think I covered most of it yesterday, so on to the links! Have a great weekend. Catch you Monday with a whole new week of style, music, and general musings! Maybe even a product review or two!

The Weekender: 4 October


Another week bites the dust and it’s time for personal bits. I feel like all I can comment on is how busy my weeks are becoming. I mean who schedules all their tests for the same day? Apparently every professor I have this semester. But Monday was a pretty great break from the normal. My bestie and I spent plenty of the morning dutifully annoying our local KISS FM station about playing the new One Direction single. Now, yes, I am in my twenties and that seems like such a 14 year old thing to be doing, but to be fair it was over Twitter and the song deserves to be played. I stand by one thing, good music, despite the countless claims they stole the piano intro. just to comment on that: it sounds most like Faithfully by Journey which is also a great song. But moving on….

The Weekender: 27 September


This week has been one hectic mess. It felt as though I barely slept or stopped moving. I’ve been studying up a storm which is never fun. It’s a stormy Saturday outside and they ever so non-chalantly said “be aware there could be isolated tornados.” Yes, in Arizona. As if that’s a thing Arizonans are used to hearing and should not at all be concerned with. I mean it probably isn’t going to be Twister-esque outside suddenly but I’m not a big fan of funnel clouds in the sky. I’ve seen a few of those here in my lifetime and they are constantly unsettling.

The Weekender: 20 September


‘Ello, all and happy weekend! Not too much to talk about in the way of personal bits this week. Still trying to get back into the swing of things. I’m not a big fan of the whole “get ahead but then fall behind” thing that is currently happening to my life, but in the grander scheme of things having fun was far more important. Those times are so few and far between lately. I’ll take them when I can get them.

The Weekender: 30 August


So personal bits for the week: a never ending circle of crazy. It feels like I never slowed down this week. From sun up to sun down just go, go, go. I could definitely use a bit of break. Getting back into the swing of things with classes being back in session is a bit rough. It’s Labor Day weekend! The unofficial end of summer has finally arrived. Time to get excited about finally being able to wear my favorite clothes and not look absolutely crazy. Unfortunately I guess that means surviving this weekend with 110+ temperatures. Gross. This weekend is going to be fun and filled with BBQs, birthday celebrations, and (hopefully) at least one hour of Great British Bake Off.

The Weekender: 16 August


I don’t have very much to say in the way of personal bits this week. I’ve been fairly tame and boring. I did have a bit of an episode with a jumping spider just yesterday, and I must admit, jumping spiders are literally the worst things in the world. I don’t even know why they exist. It scampered off and I haven’t seen it since. I get the jitters just thinking about it being somewhere in my dwelling just waiting to attack again. Gross…
