M: totally neglected... but i still like tv!

... and books and music and movies. :)

Though in truth, my TV watching has been sporadic at best in the past 1.5 years since I last posted.  The only currently airing TV shows I watch are The Amazing Race (though I haven't watched the finale of the most recent season which ended in December), Gotham (4 episodes behind), and MasterChef Junior.  I listen to the husband watch Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Bones.  I recently obsessively watched all of season one of a Canadian TV show called The Next Step, I'll blog about that separately later, though.

I don't do much reading these days, or at least anything blog-worthy. I've discovered in the past couple of years that if I don't have the time to sit and read a book (or series) from start to finish in pretty much one sitting, chances are pretty high that I will never finish the book (or series). As a result I've been pretty bad about reading anything long and meaty, and instead tend to only read young adult or trashy books, which can be started and completed in one sitting.  However, last weekend I did binge-read two books that are blog-worthy -- Graceling and Fire, part of a 3 book series by Kristin Cashore.  I have the 3rd book in possession now to read, so I will blog about those 3 books soon, too!

I do listen to music and make my way to concerts when opportunity arises.  But truthfully, I have no idea what "new" music exists anymore and find myself listening very often to the same music I have always liked.  Notable concerts I have attended since I last blogged: Imagine Dragons on their Night Visions tour, OneRepublic at the Royal Albert Hall, Pentatonix, Download Fest in Derbyshire with headliner Linkin Park performing Hybrid Theory front to back, and Linkin Park on their Hunting Party tour.

I go to the movie theater for movies maybe once every other month?  Working backwards, I've seen: Into the Woods, Mockingjay, Part 1, The Maze Runner, The Fault in our Stars, and Captain America: Winter Soldier. I think I watch more movies on planes than in theaters... I could write about Into the Woods (which only just released in the UK and I watched yesterday), but I probably won't. :)

And so yes, that is the round up of how I still like tv and books and music and movies but never blog because I just don't watch/read/listen/watch much worth writing about.  That said, I of course have new year's resolutions that I'll probably forget about shortly, which includes writing more -- and so I will try to do so through blog.  I've started my own personal blog and the plan is to cross-post anything that is relevant to this long-standing blog on both sites in the coming year.  So stay tuned! (If anyone is still tuned in, that is, ha!)

Oh -- and I did totally kill the 2013 weeklies by moving overseas.  :(

I'm still sad about not being able to see Linkin Park. How was Into the Woods?
