This has been quite a month! Here are just a couple of my favorite things from July:
TV SHOW: Glee (This show’s second season became a guilty pleasure of mine, but it wasn’t till this month that I actually went back and watched the first season on Blu-Ray.)
MOVIE: X-Men: First Class (Yes, I know this movie’s been out since the beginning of summer. I saw this movie again at a dollar theater with my dad and sister. Still just as awesome as when I first saw it. Probably my favorite movie of the summer.)
BOOK: Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw (I love My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn, but I prefer Shaw’s realistic ending. Not even looking at the age difference, I have no idea why Eliza would choose Higgins over Freddy as suggested in the movie.)
STYLE: Dianna Agron’s Quinn Fabray from Glee (I’ve fallen in love with Quinn’s feminine and put-together wardrobe while watching the show. Time to start saving up for some Anthropologie dresses and J. Crew cardigans of my own!)
ACTOR: Michael Fassbender (This guy can act. I was very impressed with him as Magneto, the depth he brought to the character was incredible. With several upcoming films including Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated Prometheus, his star is definitely on the rise.)
MUSICIAN: Cameron Mitchell (I literally just watched the The Glee Project episode in which he quit. It was for admirable reasons, but it very much saddened me because I felt he was not only the most talented person on the show, but the most interesting, as well. Either way, he has an incredible voice and I can’t wait to see more of him in the future.)
FOOD: Watermelon (I’ve been so spoiled with my dad cutting up pieces of watermelon for my sister and I for our evening snack. I’m not at all handy with a knife so this is something I’m definitely going to miss once I head back to college.)
TRAVEL: San Diego, California (Two words. Comic Con. It’s like Spring Break for nerds. This was the view from our hotel, The Mariott.)
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH... Back to school shopping, more reading, and being reunited with my APO Family.
What are you guys looking forward to in August?
