Watching: Silicon Valley. While my sister and brother-in-law were in town, we flew through the first season. I didn’t know what to expect but this show is hilarious. If you like Big Bang Theory and Mike Judge, you will love this show. It’s a bit raunchy but the vulnerability of the character helps keep things real. I won’t give too much away, but it follows a small technology start-up company with some quirky programmers. With the hype and money surrounding today’s app developing wunderkins, the show is relatable even if you don’t follow all the tech speak.
Reading: The Fault in Our Stars. I was looking for a book for my Kindle, and A Fault in Our Stars was the top recommended book. I had no idea it had a moving adaption coming out. The main character is well-developed with a bit of dry humor and charming quirkiness. She realizes that her cancer places limits on her life but it’s still only a part of her life. In other words, it’s not her life’s story. The book is about teenage love and trying to live a full life with a chronic illness. As with any cancer story, yes, it’s sad. But it’s not sad because it’s a story about illness but because the characters are so relatable. I’m not sure if I can see the movie though since I’m not a public crier!
Eating: Chinese delivery. While I lived in Atlanta, I could never find a good Chinese delivery restaurant. Luckily I found a great place that delivers to my new apartment. Score! I’m addicted to the chicken fried rice mixed with some schezuan dumplings and don’t forget the crab rangoons.
Looking Forward To: Exploring the city. I’m discovering new museums, new restaurants, and different neighborhoods.
Making Me Happy: My dogs. Even though I spend most of the days at home now, it’s still pretty awesome to have a welcome committee every time I walk through the front door. It’s not the most fun walking them in the heat, but their excitement makes it worth it. I’m a sucker for their adorable faces.
