Okay, so my dad has been sick all week. Turns out he got an infection following his biopsy last week. He's had a fever since Monday. He's getting a little better. Also, he doesn't have cancer (again)! Exciting. On a related note, Mischa (my sick cat) seems to be feeling better as well. She isn't eating at her normal rate yet and she's vomiting a bit, but overall she's doing okay. Gotta be optimistic.
I leave for Korea in five days. I'm incredibly unprepared. I haven't learned Korean, I haven't started packing yet, and I don't know what happens once I arrive at the airport in Korea. (I asked my recruiter and he hasn't responded back yet. This was a week ago.)
On the other hand, today I went through my closet in search of dressy-ish clothing - polo shirts, sweaters, that sort of thing. I wasn't expecting much because I tend to only wear t-shirts. However, I managed to find some old clothing from the last time I was skinny. I fit into some shirts that have never fit before! Very exciting. Turns out I have more polos than I thought I did. And khakis. And jeans. I still need to get a few more shirts, but beyond that I'm pretty much good to go. Surprisingly.
Here are some songs & music videos I dig right now:
These New Puritans - We Want War
fucking love this video + song. Absolutely epic.
These New Puritans - Elvis
see above. This band kicks so much ass. Can't wait for their new album!
Chromeo - Night By Night
I dare you to listen to this and not dance. TRIPLE DOG DARE YOU.
The xx - Shelter
Ladyhawke - Paris Is Burning
a little late to the party, but w/e. the chorus is hot.
Yeasayer - Ambling Alp
big YEA for YEASAYER. officially one of my favorite bands EVAR. I can't wait for their upcoming album.
