I am such a slacker but really there’s no excuse. I should have gotten this done so much sooner, but whatever. End of the week update!
Here are 5+ things going on with me and/or the world at large:
1 HOW HIMYM SHOULD HAVE ENDED - So if you haven’t heard yet, the world is revolting against the end of How I Met Your Mother. I may be over exaggerating. But I’m still kind of reeling from the way they wrapped up one of my all-time favorite shows.
It’s so crazy how much I cried within just minutes of the finale. I can’t go into detail because I hate spoilers*, but the show could’ve been SO GREAT and they could’ve just made things amazing for all the viewership. But they threw in a couple twists and honestly speaking, it made me hate the ending.
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one. An angry fan created a 3-minute video from the show’s footage and cut it in a way of how it should have ended. I can’t post it here because it’s been pulled from Youtube, but still. I’m going to choose that ending always. The actual finale is stupid.
(I mean, I get it. Story twists and stuff. Etc. Whatever. Ugh.)
(DISCLAIMER: I love love love the series. Don’t let this deter you from watching the show if you haven’t yet)
*both the TV kind and the ones you put on cars. Gross.
2 I’VE BEEN BINGING ON THE WALKING DEAD - Another finale that has got my brain in a complete tizzy is The Walking Dead. I’ve been seriously fascinated by this show and all its character development and such.
But Terminus?! WTF. Seriously, if it is what I think it is, that’s just crazy.
Anyways, I decided to start it from the beginning on Netflix and I just flew through it. SO GOOD.
3 TV LESS TUESDAY FAIL / HALF ASS LENT - So earlier this year I mentioned how I’d try out TV Less Tuesdays with TJ Mousetis (owner of Walk In Love). Dude, I did not know how HARD that would be.
And then I started Lent and gave up a few things and have seriously noticed that’s just as equally SUPER HARD too. In all honestly, it’s not because I want to do these things it’s because I keep forgetting. Like I just forget that I made a commitment. And then on the flip side, I’m not replacing it with the good things that I had planned.
Taking the time to detox crap out of my life shouldn’t be done halfway. And that’s where I’ve been. Half-assing it when I should be seriously spending more time with God and more time putting good things into my life.
It’ll get better. Still growing. Still learning here.
4 MORE PODCASTS - Well, in efforts to not listen to secular music during lent I’ve resorted to listening to more podcasts. I love worship music, folks, but I can only handle so much. I hope that’s not a bad thing.
Anyways. i’ve been listening to a few new podcasts: Improv 4 Humans, select things that featured Rachel Cruze (Dave Ramsey’s daughter - she’s awesome), and a few other random things that have to deal with business development.
I miss the Kidd Kraddick Show.
If you have any suggestions on good podcasts to listen to, please let me know!
5 CURRENTLY IN PDX - Lastly, I’m in Portland! Which is probably the big reason I’m able to sit down and write this post. There’s something about getting out of town to clear your head. That’s what this is about. Well, at least part of it.
I’m spending the weekend here with one of my friends. We’re going to hit up all the things that PDX has to offer and just catch up on life. And do some tax-free shopping! I’m excited.
If you have any suggestions of what to do/where to go while here, please let me know!!
