Trying to get with the times

A lot of the time, I just feel so freaking out of the loop! My friends are constantly talking about books/tv shows/movies/bands/actors/current events that I am just not up to date with! I am just not with it when it comes to pop culture. But thats the thing - it'd be cool if I knew a lot about what was popular back in the day or something. But a lot of the time, I just feel like I don't know anything about anything. And so in an effort to become more "with it", I thought maybe it would be cool to start doing reviews on my blog. Reviews of anything pretty much - products, food, things in the media etc. But since I don't even know what sorts of things are popular these days (I live under a rock), I was thinking that people who read my blog can leave comments, suggesting things I should expose myself to. Then I will review them, and it will be awesome!

Another way that this will seriously benefit me is because I am awful at forming opinions. I am the kind of person who can see both sides of pretty much everything, and its so hard for me to come to a final verdict. But doing reviews will force me to pick a side, and hopefully with time I will become better at feeling confident in my opinions.

I am thinking that the first review I will do will be of the HBO show Girls. But please, please leave suggestions! If you don't feel like wasting your time watching a crappy movie, suggest it to me, and I'll letcha know if its worth your time or not!



  2. First off, I'd love to do another swap around the holidays. It would be a lot of fun.

    Second, doing reviews would be awesome. I can't wait to see your thoughts on things...hmm...what should you review though? You like music so any thoughts on songs/bands you're listening too would be great. Start with what you like and know NOW and then that will hopefully expand so you can get more "with it." Don't worry, I often feel that way about things too. LOL

    It would be cool to see your thoughts on the movie Pitch Perfect coming out in the beginning of October. I can't wait to see it. OH! and if you can see the movie Ruby Sparks, I'd love to hear your opinion. I really really want to see it but haven't Paul Dano.
