June 2015 Round-up (Other)

Not going to be super wordy here.

Comics

Read through Alex + Ada, in addition to whatever comics I kept current with. Mildly enjoyed the concept (near future with household AIs that can become sentient; very similar to the current TV show Humans) and found it compelling enough to read through all 15 issues in one sitting, but ultimately kind of whatever.


Podcasts

So much Gilmore Guys: episodes 101-104, 321-322, 401-410.


This playlist:


Clothes bought:

More than I meant to? Kind of a paradoxical problem of not being employed at the moment: time off means time to actually go to stores and buy shit, but it also means not really earning the money to justify one’s purchases. It will get even worse in the July Round-up. Although if one views this time as an extended vacation between grad school and gainful employment, it might be alright?

Finally got something from AllSaints (on sale, of course), which I’ve been wanting to do since I realized that basically all of Lucy Liu’s wardrobe on Elementary is from there:

Also got multiple (oops) things from H&M, but can’t find official pictures online, so:
