Alissa Lately





READING: Paper Towns by John Green. I'm officially in a John Green hole and I don't hate it. He's such a nerd, and I get hearts in my eyes hardcore for nerds. Next is Will Grayson, Will Grayson - and I mean it this time!

EATING: Not the cookie dough I bought last Saturday. Absolutely not.

LOVING: The tiny bit of a tan I have. All of the things I have planned in the next few weeks. Group texts with friends that are full of snark. That I got the rap from "Talk On Indolence" down!

WATCHING: Last weekend Kelsey suggested we watch Mike Birbiglia's film, "Sleepwalk with Me." Birbigs is a comedian, if you've never heard of him before, and we were able to see him live a couple months ago. We also saw him on the street before the show, which warranted a, "Hey, Mike!" from our friend Brandon. I'll never forget him yelling that, like they were fucking besties.

I've also been watching Awkward and Faking It on MTV. Long live pretending I'm still a teenager.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: The Avett Brothers concert I'm going to next weekend with Kelsey and Kate in Atlantic City. I've been so excited about seeing them live again, that I completely forgot that we'll be at the beach (hence the song) (they better play it). We're only staying one night, and the majority of our time will be spent securing a spot as close to the stage as possible, but I'll be damned if I don't spend a quiet 15 on the beach.

THINKING ABOUT: Red Chuck Taylors. Black Chuck Taylors. Um, Converse All Stars in general.
