Weekend Recap: The Fault In Jenga

  • Saw Monster’s University on Thursday evening. Pixar never disappoints and I find that no matter how old you get, the movies just keep getting better and better. I first saw Monster’s Inc when I was in 6th grade and watching Monster’s University last week brought on the nostalgia.
  • Got a mani-pedi  treat as a small birthday gift from my aunt. The pedi is going strong but the mani is pretty much done. This is why I usually get mani’s done in Salon di’Riordan. Because they never last and I much prefer the *satisfaction of doing my nails myself. When did I start sounding like my mother?
  • Met up with some friends for a coffee catch-up after work on Friday. Then went home and started reading The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. After reading this article, I have such admiration for John Green. I placed a hold on his other three books so hopefully I'll get to read those soon.
  • Went to Relay for Life in Queens on Saturday with some friends and got a bit sunburned on my face and arms. Correction, just the bottom half of my right arm. Awkward. I'm usually good with the suntan lotion, but forgot to bring some and had to suffer the consequences. We went to a house party afterwards and I confirmed the sad fact that I'm still awful at beer pong. Also, life-sized Jenga. ‘Nuff said.
  • Sunday was a lazy day, as it should be. I celebrated my birthday with my immediate family (usually we do this the night of, but I was out with my friends and this past week was just too busy for everyone.) That cake right there is Boston Cream, which should just be called Cream. Because that’s basically all it is.
  • I finished The Fault In Our Stars late Sunday night and was crying by the end of it. I would love to do a Book Review post, but I honestly feel that a.) I just don’t know how to write a book review without giving away spoilers, b.) I’m too lazy, and c.) if I did write one, the only thing I would say is to just read it. Experience the hype for yourself because it definitely lives up to it. Sure, it doesn’t take a lot for me to cry when reading books (which is why I do it privately, for the most part) but I think the ending of this book would make even the most cold-hearted individual weep and weep and weep. Because that’s pretty much what I was doing last night. Read it!
'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah after all this time
I'm still into you
