I’ve been meaning to do a “Friday Favorites” section for AGES. But life, like it always does, keeps preventing it from happening. On a Thursday afternoon, I’ll remind myself to come up with something… only to forget. Or, I’ll think of it on Monday… which is not very helpful. Now, though. Now I’m going to make it happen.
Without further ado, here are my Friday Favorites!
For only 99¢, Peace tea is a worthwhile investment. It’s basically what I survived on sophomore year. (Dining dollars well spent? I think, yes.) I managed to wean myself off of them after a while, but still pick one up every once in a while when I’m out grocery shopping. My favorite is the Razzleberry, but I recently discovered the blue Sno Berry flavor, which is also fabulous.
I just finished reading Mrs. Dalloway for the second time this week. It is a breathtaking portrait of a day in London after World War I. Having spent time in the city, I felt like I was right there–standing in a crowd outside Buckingham Palace, cruising up the Strand atop a bus, crossing Victoria Street… “What a lark! What a plunge!” How Woolf manages to capture all the beauties and complexities of a single day astounds me. I could ramble on and on about all the aspects of the book that I love, but I’ll let you discover those for yourself. Still… I could read this novel once a year for the rest of my life and still not fully comprehend all of its elements.
Bath, England. They just don’t make cities like these in America. The lovely Georgian architecture, stunning cathedrals, old bridges, and ancient Roman bath houses… it’s like walking backwards into history. Because it’s a World Heritage site, it looks pretty much the same now as it did in the 1700’s. Plus, Jane Austen lived here… which is pretty much fabulous.
I want to do is hop in my car with all my friends and sing at the top of my lungs. It’s all I’ve been listening to for the past week.
