7 Quick Takes…about nothing in particular

on September 21, 2012

Hidy Ho Neighbor!

This weeks 7 QT has no theme. Just bits of randomness. Pretty much my life.

1. Last weekend was a lot of fun. The sister and I  had a lot of fun in Lubbock and got to see Tech dominate the Lobos. We ate lots of good food, saw good friends and even did a painting (shout out to Painting With A Twist Lubbock!) of a famous Tech landmark. Good, good times. Even though my grandmother no longer lives there, I am glad I still have friends out there – gives me an excuse to go back!

2. This weekend will be dedicated to Fall Cleaning. What’s Fall Cleaning? Spring Cleaning for procrastinators. Actually, it just means I need to clean my apartment. And tomorrow is the first official day of Fall, so even though it will be 95 degrees, Fall Cleaning. Whatever. Either way, my apartment is a disaster zone and I hope that by Monday, it will not be. Let me tell you, it is super easy to let things go when you are the only one who sees it. Not that I like it messy, I’m just not quite as motivate as I was when I had a roommate.

3. This week, I decided to re-read the Harry Potter series. I don’t know that I’ve read all 7 books one right after another. I think I started reading them when the fourth or so book came out, so I read all those close together, but the others I read when they came out, and then re-read just before each movie came out. Anyway, I’m already excited about it because a) I love those books and b) I’m only in book 2 and I can already see where things are being set up for later. I love when authors (or tv/movie writers) do that.

4. My favorite app right now is Instagram. I so love taking pictures and then seeing other people’s pictures.If you want to follow me, I’m @hollyberry402. I promise, no duck face pics. Unless it’s the face of an actual duck.

5. Speaking of apps, I’m considering a new phone. I have an almost 2-year -old HTC Evo 4G and I feel like it’s losing battery power more and more these days. Plus, it’s almost out of storage space. Plus every now and then it does crazy things that drive me batty – like completely lock up so I can access nothing, usually right when I need to make a call. Don’t tell me to turn off Wifi and 4G or to download Task killer or adjust my brightness or any of those other tips that you can easily find by googling. I already do all of that. I think it just can’t handle new stuff as well as it did in the beginning. The iPhone 5 came out today, and I’m debating it, but I do love Androids (and the bigger screen), so I need to do more research

6. There are several food items that I can’t stand an yet everyone else thinks are the best thing God ever created. Examples: Avocado, Hummus, Fruit cereals (like Fruit Loops, Fruity Pebbles, Trix, etc. Special K Red Berries is delicious). Don’t even try to change my mind on these. I have tried them all multiple times in an attempt to like them. No use. Avocado makes me gag and want to vomit, even just the smell of it. In any form. Which makes it hard for me to like sushi, since every time I see sushi, there is piece of green grossness in it. Hummus is a texture/taste thing. I don’t like the texture (usually grainy to me), but even if it was super smooth, it stills tastes like sand to me. And those fruit cereals are gross. I’m  not a big fan of many artificial fruit flavorings to begin with, but those 3 cereals take the cake. Yes I know, I’m weird.

7. The thing I’m most excited about right now is that before the Fall Cleaning begins, I get to go see a brand new baby! Two of my childhood friends got married a few years back and their first son was born yesterday. Love newborns. All cute and little and perfect.
