What’s good? (July 2015)

So……..July.

Where did you even come from dude? I feel like you snuck up on us a bit and now we’re more than halfway through the year with little to show for it.

We’re all going to wake up tomorrow and it’ll be Christmas. Watch…

Do you remember the movie, KIDS?

This was probably the most interesting thing I have read all week – an interview with the main cast and crew, twenty years later. I remember seeing this movie and being both deeply moved and deeply disturbed at the same time. It was unforgettable, and it had hit me hard.

Sex, drugs, and rave culture were things I knew very well and things that were so vividly illustrated by this unexpected cult-like film of the 90s. It had a big impact on me when I saw it. Reading this interview really stirred things up for me…

9 Things to Know About Kids in Foster Care

This really ripped my heart right out of my chest. I have felt for a long time that foster care and/or adoption are part of my future, and now I feel so more than ever. No child should have to live without someone to love, cherish, and protect them. That just should not be.

CURRENTLY READING:

Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham

It has taken me so long to get around to this one because I didn’t want to read it badly enough to actually buy it and only just discovered it at my library last week. But, better late than never, right?

(And to be honest…I think I could’ve written this very same collection of essays with far greater fanfare. All I heard about this book was the controversial content and explicit stories, but I have yet to be even the slightest bit shocked or offended.)

Are we friends on Facebook yet?  Because we totally should be.

Even though I usually have a way better time on Instagram…

I do some pinning here and there, and occasionally I tweet.

And just for good measure ;)
