I gave up on Moods for a while because I wasn’t interesting enough, to be quite frank. I wasn’t filling them with interesting, worth-while information that I thought anyone would care about. However, after looking back at previous Moods from last year, there are already things I would have forgotten if I didn’t write about them — yet another reason for you to start a blog!
So I’m bringing Moods back starting with July!
Movies: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! I wrote a review of the movie, and my overall thoughts, but have kept it as a draft. I might publish it later, but overall I couldn’t write everything I wanted to in a short enough blog that anyone would find interesting. In short: amazing movie, but sad about some of the important scenes from the book that were left out.
DVD: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! – I watched the ending of this movie about 10 times before I went to see Half-Blood Prince. It’s the only DVD I have even had time to think about this month.
Music: Music is now changing to Top 5 Songs of the month due to the fact that I can never just pick one song or artist to represent an entire month. I was originally going to report my Top 5 songs according to my Last.fm, but now that I drive to and from work, I don’t scrobble all of my music. I’ve added a 6th song, which is the one that probably could have been No.5, but didn’t make the cut this month (See below).
Top 5 Songs of July:
1. Whitney Houston – “I Look To You”
2. Ingrid Michaelson – “Maybe”
3. Mariah Carey – “Obsessed”
4. Passion Pit – “Little Secrets”
5. Chester French – “She Loves Everybody”
6. Beyonce – “Halo”
TV Shows: Just recently bought a season pass for Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, because it was only $15 on iTunes! Wowsers!
Game: I wish I had more time to play games, but probably my Wild Wild West pinball game on the iPhone. A lot of fun!
Book/Magazine: Is it bad that I am an English major and don’t read as much as I would like. This section of my blog is going to be the sole purpose in my reading a lot more. No books or magazines in July. (I work too much!)
Purchase: I’ve made a lot of awesome purchases lately. Most importantly: my iPhone 3Gs! So much faster, and the video quality is so much better than I expected. Last month I bought Sirius radio which has been amazing. Also, spent $2 on a laser pointer that has been a source of amusement and laughter for my family because Mick, our dog, just chases it around until he can’t stand up on his own 2 legs anymore.
Travel: Since I spent 5 days in New York City last month, and I work full time, I didn’t travel that much this month. I went to Brittney’s in Altoona 2 weekends ago, and that was about it. It was a lot of fun, but I expect a return to New York City in August when the U.S. Open starts!
