We’ve now reached the most joyous time of the year – no school, vacations, outdoor movies and concerts, ice creams, melting in the heat…So the last one isn’t so great, but it’s all I’ve been thinking about since returning to NYC. I am not sure how people who live here do it because all I want to do is shower. All time time. I feel sticky and gross and I’m pretty sure I’ve managed to sweat out most of the liquids in my body (seriously, how am I not dehydrated…yet?!).
I haven’t updated in forever because of school, but now that I’ve got more free time on my hands, I’ll try to keep up with this blog. There’s a bunch of that I want to commit to memory via electronic paper, so I will try my hardest to not be so lazy and actually write. In the meantime, here’s a quick little Summer 2013 playlist that I’ve put together of some of the songs that I have been enjoying for the past month or so!
Like I mentioned above, there are a bunch of awesome events going on in NYC this Summer and I’m hoping to go to as many as I can. Tonight I managed to catch Comedy Central’s Stars Under the Stars event as part of the NYC SummerStage series and it was great. Gabriel Iglesias hosted, while the main performers included Adam Devine, John Mulaney, Jeffrey Ross, and Amy Schumer. The other three were decent (Jeffrey Ross made the whole audience uncomfortable though when he started roasting two 13 year olds), but Mulaney was my favorite. He was absolutely hilarious and unlike a lot of comedians, did not have to rely on racial or overly sexual jokes. Maybe I’m getting older (or my taste has changed), but I’m more impressed when comedians can do a great set that isn’t riddled with cheap jokes. Not to say that I don’t enjoy “low-brow” humor, because I do (just saying, I absolutely loved This is the End), but after awhile it gets old and feels lazy, as though the audience were stupid. Anyway, it was still lots of fun and I had a great time!
