    It's a Katherine Hepburn Spencer Tracy flick that would be amazing to remake

Wow that's a lot of notifications
  1. Self confidence
    Am I even funny? Do I have something of worth to say?

Let it goooooooooooo
  1. False friends
    Also former who have been separated by time and distance. Facebook is both a boon and a pain.
  2. Former selves
    I am not who I was one, five, or twenty years ago. Let it go.
  3. Self doubt
    What is it they say, that the highest walls we need to climb are from within ourselves? Yeah.

    I've had every song on repeat for the past three days and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
  3. TV: Modern Family

I started this as a personal project on paper, just a sort of journaling exercise. What have I learned from this? There's so much that I am interested in! Ugh no wonder I love wikipedia.
  1. History
  2. Early American history
    1607-1820 or so
  3. Medieval history
    Also philosophy, religion, art, politics...

Yeah yeah I'm a day late. I had this great idea last night while watching fireworks and by the time I got home all I wanted to do was collapse into bed.
  1. 2016: Portland, TX
    Made an apple pie from scratch for the first time. Watched 1776, ate hot dogs and hamburgers. Went to the Corpus Christi aquarium for fireworks.
  2. 2015: Nashville, TN
    Visited Codys friends there. We ate really good pancakes and it rained but we saw some fireworks anyways.
  3. 2014: Houston, TX
    We were going to see the symphony play at the park but it rained so we stayed home and watched the fireworks from the apartment balcony.

All hail Netflix! (And HBO)
  1. Tudors
    Sure it isn't exactly historically accurate, but damn if it isn't good
  2. Sex and the City
    I'm a Charlotte and a cliché and I don't care
  3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    Straight up amazing.

I saw something about this yesterday and it piqued my interest: I've always wanted to read more classic literature so I think I'll start working through this list! You can read about it here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokklubben_World_Library but basically a bunch of international authors got together and chose the 100 best books of all time.
  1. 1.
    Achebe, Chinua: Things Fall Apart
    Ok so I read this freshman year of high school, almost 11 years ago. I'll re-read it because it was so long ago.
  2. 2.
    Anonymous: Book of Job
    Read this twice, each time I did the read the Bible in a year thing. I've never read it from a literary perspective though so I'll look up some commentary and read it again.
  3. 3.
    Austen, Jane: Pride and Prejudice
    I've read this at least a dozen times (check out my earlier list about books I've read at least twice).
