boardwalk empire

June 26, 2011

The weather’s been unusually solemn for this time of year, which I don’t actually mind because all it means is a wonderfully mild climate and that I get to cover up with a blazer or a light jacket, which is always preferable to sitting in that sauna called the metro.
I have my two last exams of the year on Monday and Tuesday (business law & media politics) which I can’t wait to be done with.

I haven’t actually studied all that much so far which is why I really need to get my ass in gear. Instead of studying I have spent way too much time on Polyvore & started watching ‘Boardwalk Empire‘ which is officially about the Prohibition era but really all about gangsters being their wonderful selfs. Have always had a knack for morally ambiguous characters, still I didn’t think this show was going to be up my alley but it surprisingly is very much so. Unlike a lot of other gangster shows it’s kind of subtle actually and not all that showy. Furthermore I have started reading A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan because apparently I have too much time on my hands.

On top of that I’ve also slowly but surely started preparing for my semester abroad in Paris – got an apartment, booked my flight, made a list of places I still need to visit even though I haven been to Paris twice before (Versailles, Maison de Victor Hugo etc.)
Also definitely on my list: pop by COS, the A.P.C. surplus store and IRO to buy up their whole line of goods.

“When I think of bookishness in music, it’s not of Katy Perry
but something more awkward, more earnest, the type of music that stays inside on
a sunny day.”

Laura Barton

Might I suggest this fine piece of music?!
