Life Update

Life Update: 8/8 – 8/14

I didn’t get a ton done this week, but that’s partly because TEAM USA IS CRUSHING AT THE OLYMPICS!!!

MICHAEL PHELPS. KATIE LEDECKY. SIMONE MANUEL. SIMONE BILES. THE ENTIRE FINAL FIVE!

Also, I applied for Senior Editor at Her Campus and entered Rejected Princesses’ contest to win a signed copy of the upcoming book. I just said “I got this” aloud–if it worked for Laurie Hernandez…?

BOOKS/MOVIES/MUSIC RECAP

Read THE GIRLS by Emma Cline. This novel was so hyped that it was hard to really live up to those expectations, but ultimately I do think it did deserve them. Cool movies this week: BLUE VALENTINE, 45 YEARS, THE ROVER, and HELL OR HIGH WATER. In contrast, music was a bit slower. Catchy singles from the other side of the pond: “Good Summer” by Kate Nash and “Power Over Men” by Jamie T (I dig the older female sexuality in the video!)
