I know I said I would write about what I was excited for that same weekend, but obviously that didn't happen and it is because times are tough right now. I am job searching, getting my apartment in order, potty training a puppy, and trying to balance all of my time and budget as wisely as possible.
It has most certainly taken its toll. So I am taking a night to sit down and write what I have been excited for. The list isn't long and it will end up being kind of a list of resolutions. So here we go:
First of all, I am very excited for Mindy Kaling's new book to come out in September. It's called "Why Not Me?" and I hope it is as wonderful as her first novel was. Here is an Amazon link to the book and you can check out her other book as well from that page. There isn't art work yet but I can assure you it will be adorable. Just wait. Also you should read her first book, watch all of The Mindy Project, and follw her on Instagram if you haven't already done all of these things. She is just as cool if not cooler than Amy Poehler and Tina Fey so get on it!
Also, I am excited for are a couple of TV shows. Later in the year there will be a bigger post about the new fall lineup, but for right now there are some spring releases I think should be discussed. First off, Fresh off the Boat is finally being released!! I am super excited. I have probably too high of hopes for it, but I am really hoping it is as funny as it looks. It will air on ABC February 10th.
The second show I am excited for is a new drama called American Crime. It looks very intense from the trailer. It could go the overdramatic route, however, I am optimistic. Once again it is ABC and they have been known for some good dramas. This isn't Shondaland though so it may be less fun and more dark than Grey's or Scandal.
A few other exciting 2015 items are Better Call Saul, the final season of Mad Men, and the Texas Rangers to have a healthy good season. I hope. In the meantime, I will just listen to Avril Lavigne's new song, which isn't great and Meghan Trainor's new album, which also isn't great. I was wrong about that one. I am sure music will get better. I am not the most up to date in the music scene anyway. If you want that information you should check out Culture Greyhound.
Not focusing on media and looking into my real life, I have to say I am excited to get a job. A real 9-5, weekends off, and benefits package job. I am also excited to take my puppy for walks and maybe a hike once in a while as well as FINALLY learn to cook and spend time with my friends. Every year I find myself watching more and more tv and not really learning any new skills or changing the way I would like to. However, this year feels good. It's been a month and I have already completed some projects, I have started walking the dog more and my apartment is coming together nicely. There is so much to do and once I find a job there will be less time to do it, but I am confident that it will get done.
I hope everyone has had a great year so far and I hope it keeps moving along nicely. I have already had some down times this year and I have let stress get to me, but I am tired of sitting around being sad or stressed. It's hard and time consuming when I could be doing bigger, better, louder things.
Sing at the top of your lungs, you'll feel better.
