As it Stands

As it Stands1 // 2 // 3 // 4: Me //

This week I have been listening to Portugal. The Man’s newest album, Evil Friends quite a bit. I was a bit apprehensive when they released their single “Purple Yellow Red and Blue,” but now that the whole album is out, I must say I have been listening to it on repeat. In particular, the song I’ve been most obsessed with is Atomic Man. Be sure to give it a listen here.

Kate Bingaman-Burt’s TEDx Talk is now available online, and I really enjoyed it. I constantly start personal projects which fall to the wayside, but hearing her talk about the process of making rules has me feeling more optimistic. For now, my newest project is keeping this blog alive and well. Let’s see how well my rules hold up!

I think it’s really important to get a little laugh in everyday because, let’s be real, life is too short to be serious all the time. This week I got a chuckle out of this slo-mo photobooth video. It’s an absolutely silly video that serves as a great reminder that growing older doesn’t have to equal growing up.

I’m trying to get better about documenting my life (see: this blog) because I realized how much I love that I can visit my 8 year old (abandoned) blog and quickly see what I was doing on this day in 2005.

That being said, I’m currently looking forward to visiting one of my best friends from college this weekend and spending my day with her in Madison tomorrow. To add to the excitement, another college friend is in town from Minnesota, so I’m excited to catch up with him too. I’m wholeheartedly embracing this busy but fun summer weekend!
