#FiftyFiftyMe 2014

  • Currently listening to: "Ghosting" by Freelance Whales

Hey, guys! Been a while since I last posted anything, I know, and I deeply apologize for that. Been pretty busy and generally stressed out with my senior year down here at SCAD. But I'm trying to get a better hold on things and get a grip on time management and all that beautiful adult stuff.

With that being said, there may not be a lot of art on here for a little while, seeing as a lot of my artistic attention is going to be directed towards classes and my film; not sure how much recreational time I'll have between that, but! To keep this blog alive, I'm going to attempt the FiftyFiftyMe challenge for 2014!

I'm still working on building my list of 50 books and 50 movies, but I'll be posting little reviews for them as I go. Nothing too thorough or fancy--especially for the books as I'll probably be reading them over long stretches of time for the first half of the year--but yes. c: I'm really excited about this.

My list so far is as follows! An * next to a book title indicates I'm currently reading it.

Obviously, I need more movies on my list, but since I'm not expecting to really check any of those off until I'm either on a break or graduated, I'm willing to kind of let that one grow slowly. 

If you have any suggestions, books but especially movies, just throw me a tweet or comment here maybe? With movies, I'm trying to find older ones that might be considered classics, even though quite a few of the ones I have listed aren't. So suggestions towards those would be awesome. Romances and romantic comedies aren't really my thing, but if it's a good solid one, why not?

I think that's all I got for now. Hope you've all had a good start to your year and hopefully you'll hear from me again soon!
