Celebrate The Small Things

vik - small things 2

Celebrate The Small Things is a weekly blog hop, wherein we post our celebrations each Friday, no matter how big or small. You can sign up here. Thanks to our host Lexa Cain and her co-hosts L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Katie @ TheCyborgMom for continuing what VikLit started!

 

How can it be May already? Where has the last four months gone? Looking back at April, I didn’t make much progress in my WIP. My sleeping schedule is all messed up and I’m tired most of the time. Work isn’t going great (but at least I still have a job–so I suppose that is one thing to celebrate about).

So what else am I celebrating this week?

  1. Finished reading Atonement by Ian McEwan and starting on another book (Stuart: A Life Backwards by Alexander Masters). I’d been on a reading slump for some time so while it may not sound much, this is actually good news for me. Atonement started a bit slow but since I’ve seen the movie version, it made slogging through the boring parts easier, and I’m glad to have another book off my reading list!

  2. My birthday!

  3. And the three-day weekend. Yay!

 

Not really a celebration, but I went to see The Avengers: Age of Ultron last week. The 3D was really not that great in my opinion, and perhaps I had high expectations of the movie, as I found it was just okay for me. Don’t want to spoil anything for those that haven’t seen yet so that’s all I’m going to say about it. The Agents of Shield episode this week that leads into the movie was awesome though!

Anyway, a friend of mine shared this with me: Jeremy Renner singing (as Hawkeye) on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I thought it was pretty hilarious. Enjoy!

What are you celebrating this week? Have you seen Age of Ultron? What did you think of it? Do you watch any of the other shows that tie in with the MCU?

Celebrate The Small Things … With Cake

Just saw The Amazing Spiderman 2. I have some issues with it but over-all I enjoyed the movie. Peter and Gwen (Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone) have such an amazing chemistry and I just fell in love with “their” song from the movie, Song for Zula by Phosphorescent.

And since it’s Friday, it’s time again to post our celebrations as Celebrate The Small Things, thanks to our awesome host VikLit.

My Celebrations for this week:

  1. Won Camp NaNoWriMo and hit my goal of finishing the first draft.

Celebrating the 80’s

vik - small things 2

Time for another post in the Celebrate The Small Things Hop with our awesome host VikLit. Do visit her blog here to learn more about this Blog Hop and celebrate with us!

This week I’m celebrating:

4262 words in my WIP. Yes, I procrastinated–a lot! But I’m really getting down to the wire here. I just need to figure out how to tie up those loose ends…

And if you can’t figure things out or you’d rather put off doing things you should be doing, there’s always something on cable to catch your eye, which brings me to the 80’s, and a movie called 16 Candles.

I’ve never seen the movie before and although I found some parts to be a bit cheesy, I also thought it was cute and just the kind of teen movie that only the 80’s could pull off.

Big hair aside, the 80’s had some great music. New wave, anyone? And those classic John Hughes movies. Pretty in Pink has got to be my favorite and when they started playing If You Leave by OMD during the prom, best song intro ever! Okay, maybe not ever

What do you think of the 80’s? Do you have a favorite movie or song from this era? Do you find yourself nostalgic of the 80’s and these type of movies? What are you celebrating this week?
