Gentle Readers, welcome! It’s time for another installment of Things I’m Currently Obsessed With. Previous installments can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
1. Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank)
I don’t know what it is about this particular song that I find so interesting, but I do know that I can’t stop listening to it. Kendrick Lamar’s album is probably the best new album I’ve been listening to a lot, and this song is one of my pump-up songs before I go out. There’s something completely voyeuristic about listening to Lamar’s whole album, and this song definitely showcases his talent at creating songs with soul-baring lyrics.
This one is embarrassing because it’s so consumption-driven. I like to troll the websites pictures because they have some ridiculous stuff for sale. They also have some really cool stuff. I’m not going to lie: I want the sweatshirt with the mermaid dance quote on it from Pitch Perfect.
3. Crafting a decent holiday gift list
I’m not going to lie: I have a hard time picking out presents for people, whether it’s birthdays, parent days, or the holidays. I try to start fairly far in advance so that I can get what I need to get for the people closest to me. This year, I’m spending a lot of time trying to figure out what to get people that isn’t a total waste of time or money. I also value giving gifts that the person will actually use. In order to do this, I’m making liberal use of Pinterest, Wanelo, Uncommon Goods, and Evernote (to track it all, duh).
4. French Bulldog Puppy
I stumbled across this while doing searches for stupidly cute animals. I don’t know what it is about this short video I find so endearing or affecting. I just know that it makes me stupidly happy. How can you not love it? I just want him to get up at the end. YOU CAN DO IT.
5. Stacked Books hosts Contemporary YA Week
Have you checked out Stacked Book’s Contemporary YA week? If you haven’t you should. They have tons of great recommendations, discussions, and information about my favorite genre. There are great lists of books (my favorite thing in the world) for any YA fan to geek out over. This is a blog that consistently delivers some of the best content on the internet (in my humble opinion). GO AND SEE.
