+ I started driving again after a 5 year hiatus. We have Car2Go Smart Cars here so I have been using those to get back into the driving groove. We are now looking for a used car for me! While I do want something cute like a Fiat or Mini Cooper, I think we should go with a Subaru (something with 4 wheel drive) since we both will be using the new car. I can put off a cute car until I'm a nurse. But seriously, a chocolate brown Fiat is like my dream car at the moment.
+ We ordered tickets to see Norm MacDonald in Cleveland and Tim, Eric and Dr. Steve Brule in Pittsburgh. I'm pumped for both and we're in the front for Norm MacDonald!
+ I rented a Tilt-shift lens and started making posts in July but will continue into August with more photos I take with it. I had so much fun taking pictures at the fair!
+ I read and finished Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. I was highly impressed with the novel.
+ I started a new blog feature called Whisker Wednesdays that is all about cats. I'm not sure if I can think of something to write about every Wednesday but at least all cat talk will be dedicated to a certain day of the week.
+ We started watching The Leftovers and I kind of dig it. They're being very secretive about why a portion of the population disappeared but I'm hoping aliens.
+ I started reading The Lies of Locke Lamora and am in love. The author, Scott Lynch, is often compared to Patrick Rothfuss and I love Patrick Rothfuss. I feel like such a nerd but these authors are incredible storytellers.
+ I've been eating better and lost some weight. I still have a ways to go but I feel considerably better overall. The only problem I'm having is that I work until 8pm and I don't eat the food that's in the break room. So, I am usually super hungry when I get home.
+ A blog redesign with a new header image and layout that actually shows my comment count. I think I'll actually stick with this layout for a bit.
- N/A. I have nothing negative to say about this month over than the usual--school and work get in the way of fun.
