Can you believe it's almost mid-April already? Time goes by so quickly! This week is my last week of school and I thought I'd share with you some of my recent thoughts, and some of the things that have happened in the last few days.

Last night I rented the movie "The Boy Downstairs" on iTunes. It's an independent movie starring Zosia Mamet (who plays Shoshanna in Girls) and it was incredible! The apartment where she lives is beautiful, I had serious clothing inspiration from her and the storyline was lovely. It got me thinking about all these other movies that have had an impact on me for different reasons than just the plot. I think what I loved the most about this one was how relatable it is, and how beautiful it was visually. Zosia Mamet is super talented and always makes me laugh! I love watching smaller productions as they always feel more real than the big budget movies. What do you think?

This week I also attended the opening of Colette Grand Café with my blogger BFF Cassidy. We didn't stay for very long but it was so nice to see her and I'm happy that my blogging experience lead to such a great friendship! After reading The F Word by Lily Pebbled (despite being disappointed), I've been thinking a lot more about how I met my friends and what makes them so special. For that reason, I ordered the book "The Friendship Cure" by Kate Leaver, the reviews are great so I'm excited to delve more into the topic of friendship. I think a big section of the book focuses on long-distance friendships inspired by her permanent move Australia to the UK, which I'm curious to read considering the long-distance friendships I have. 

Talking about books, the pile on my bedside table keeps growing and growing. I've started reading 3 books at the same time, something I never thought I would do. And I'm also planning a visit to the public library this afternoon despite having enough reading materials for the whole summer (but I want to pick up a Nora Ephron book). Is there such a thing as too many books?

On a completely different note, I've been thinking about sleep patterns. For some reason, I always wake up around 6:30 am, even on the weekend. It's frustrating to always be the first one up, and the first one that needs to go to bed. Do you think sleeping patterns can be changed easily? I'll have to do more research on it. Fun fact: I've never in my entire life waken up after 10 am. 

So this post was very random and scattered (just like my brain), but it would be lovely to hear your thoughts on some of the topics or hear what's been on your mind this week. Happy Sunday!
