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…?
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!)
