What to Watch on Netflix + Amazon Prime

As bad as it is, most of my free time is spent browsing through Netflix but since it’s summer it’s really not that bad right? Totally acceptable! And since it is the All-Star break for MLB, there’s nothing for me to watch until Friday. So I figured I would share some of my favorite shows, movies, and documentaries in case y’all were looking for something new to watch! These aren’t all of my favorites, we would be here forever, but I tried to pick ones that I’ve watched multiple times and deserve some more love.

p.s. I’ll more than likely call every one of these “my all time favorite” but that’s because I really do love all of these and I have trouble picking favorites. Like when you’re a kid and have all your stuffed animals on your bed because you don’t want them to be lonely.

DOCUMENTARIES

Documentaries are some of my favorite things to watch, especially about events that I know very little about or have only heard about in passing. These are my favorite because they’re very well put together and you get a lot of information very quickly. They aren’t boring and drawn out and they really make you think.

Musings No. 5 | Friday Favorites

Found this photo while digging through my external hard drive, it’s too pretty not to post

LATELY

listening to:  I’ve been obsessed with Harry Styles’s new album. I was never a One Direction fan so I feel like my opinion is on this is a very fair an unbiased one, you need to listen to it. I listened to it on Spotify, loved it so much that I bought the CD so I could listen to it on my drive to class. It’s been playing non-stop  

reading: I’ve been terrible about reading lately. I started 10 weeks of summer classes so I’ve been extremely lazy. I’m still working on  Now I Can Die in Peace by Bill Simmons... which I started in April.

watching: It’s been non-stop baseball for the most part. I re-watched  Newsroom for the millionth time. I’m obsessed with that series. So much so I bought it on BluRay so I could watch all the behind the scenes and commentary episodes.

snacking: Because I’ve been waking up earlier for my  8 a.m. classes, I feel like I’ve been snacking a lot more throughout the day. Recently discovered  Boom Chicka Pop cheddar popcorn and it’s seriously the most addicting snack ever. I’ve also been loving the Chobani greek yogurt drinks. Since I commute, it makes for an easy breakfast. I like the mixed berry but my favorite flavor is the Apple Veg.

loving: Shea Moisture blow dry cream, this stuff smells amazing and leaves my hair so smooth and soft. Makes blow drying with a round brush a breeze. 

wearing: I’ve been wearing these Old Navy sandals nonstop. They’re comfy, look good with everything, and come in a bunch of different colors and patterns. 

Here’s to the beginners

It’s only been a week and a half but it feels like it’s been over a month since I posted.  I started my first of two five week 8 a.m. summer classes this week and I feel like all I’ve done is wake up at 6 a.m., drive to campus, spend two hours in class, drive home, and sleep.  And that’s all I’ve wanted to do.

I’ve had four blog posts sitting in my drafts just waiting to be written. But for some reason I couldn’t make myself sit down and write them. I thought about them, on multiple occasions. On that 40 minute drive from campus at 10 a.m. every day I’ve had the thought “I can get home, have plenty of time to write and be productive, I can get so much done!” And then nothing.

Musings No.4

listening to:  Big Little Lies soundtrack, The Aventine album by Agnes Obel (who I found because of the Big Little Lies soundtrack) has been my go to when studying or writing lately. When I want to listen to music but not music I’ll get distracted to. It really makes me want to learn piano!

reading: Since the semester is winding down and most of my big assignments have been turned in, I finally started reading a book I got for Christmas, Now I Can Die in Peace by Bill Simmons. If you’re a fan of the Four Days in October 30 for 30 on Netflix, this book is for you!

2017 Goals || March Update

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I totally had this planned to go up earlier this week but school has been crazy. So much was due this week and I’ve been swamped!

I’m excited for this update because February-March was really good for accomplishing my goals.  Especially the ones that I didn’t do much with in January.

2017 Goals

January Update

1. Watching more baseball and more photography went together especially in March.  My best friend and I went to the Rangers ballpark to watch Texas Tech play UT Arlington so I took my camera and I was so happy I did because the sunset that night was gorgeous.

Musings No. 3

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetKind of forgot about this little series I started and then didn’t really know what to do with it. So I think I’m going to try doing this weekly or every other week depending on the number of posts I have for a week. I thought about adding it to Monday since I’ve just been doing the weekly inspiration posts then. But since I didn’t post anything Wednesday or Friday, I decided to post today. I’m not sure if it’ll stay on Saturdays or even have a set day. Honestly, I’m just winging it.

In the Books: Three book reviews

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetI enjoyed the last few days of my winter break, I enjoyed it by reading three books in three days. It’s safe to say I got my groove of reading back.I started with The Twilight Wife, then The Good Neighbor, and lastly, The Couple Next Door.

If you enjoyed Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, all three of these will be right up your alley.

They’re all dark mysteries, and like I said I finished each of them in a day, all are total page turners. I didn’t want to put any of them down.
