A Day in the Life #42

So my blogging schedule hasn't quite made it to any resemblance of regular (or frequent) posts, but I picked up extra shifts at both my jobs the past two weeks, so I've decided to go ahead and forgive myself.  I'm so magnanimous, I know.

Why have I been picking up so many extra shifts you might ask?  Well there's:

A. My student loans that have kicked in because the government took forever to process my repayment plan, but more importantly

My best friend is now a flight attendant!  Which is such a good fit for him, and has mad benefits for me.  Namely, I can go to Paris for like...nothing practically.  All it's going to cost me is basically hotel fare, doing stuff in Paris costs, and the cost of not working.  Which is totally worth it. Because, hello, I'M GOING TO PARIS.  It'll only be for a couple days but, hey I'm not complaining!

And that's basically it?  Overall it's been a fairly uneventful past couple weeks, with really lovely weather, so I can't complain too much :)

HAHAHA.  You ask why I'm laughing? Because I was going to post this last weekend.  And then I got knocked flat for half a week by the stomach flu.  Like...easily in the top 5 sickest I have ever been in my life.  Which considering the sickest I've been is either the time I was pretty much confined to my room for a month with an ear infection, throat infection, and pink eye or that time I threw up every 10 minutes for 24 hours (quite literally), is really saying something.  Also that lovely weather is SO NOT TRUE ANYMORE.  It HAILED yesterday. HAIL.  In APRIL.  Also I'd put my lavender and baby aloe vera plants out because it had been nice and I'm fairly certain they aren't going to recover which makes me sad :(.

But hey, I'm not sick anymore and I'm going to Paris, so what's a little bad weather and plant death to me?

What I've Been Listening To:

I tried watching the MV for this one and...I had no earthly idea what was going on.  Don't care though, this song is SO. GOOD.

I've been listening to Kishi Bashi for the past month and I can't pick between these two songs as my favourites.  It's like Andrew Bird meets Sufjan Stevens meets MGMT.  It's so bubbly and fun and layered and I LOVE IT.

Ooh and speaking of musical stuff, turns out they actually recorded the Bach concert, so for those who care to listen, here's the recording of my part of the Bach concert!

And now I leave you with your weekly bookish links!
