Currently Obsessed With #1: January 2014

I’m actually really excited to be doing this post!  One of my goals this year was to get a little more personal, and talk about what’s going on and what I’m really into, and now seemed like a really good time to start!  This is actually inspired by a few different blogs where there’s a look back at their week (or month) and this is just my version of that.

First: Let It Go in 25 different languages!

It’s actually awesome to see it in so many languages!  Frozen is pretty awesome, and when this version of Let It Go came up at a friend’s birthday dinner, I knew I would have to look at it!  It even says what the different languages are, and it’s astounding that someone (I’m assuming someone from Disney, since it’s on their youtube channel) put it together.

Speaking of Frozen, I’m also obsessed with the soundtrack!  I don’t usually feel compelled to buy movie soundtracks, but I fell in love with the soundtrack while watching Frozen, and now I can’t stop listening to it!  It’s also one of the best Disney soundtracks. Seriously, it is.

I’ve also been crocheting a bit, and I’ve made some hats and headbands.

I also want to make a blanket, so I’ve been looking at patterns.  A blanket is definitely a big project, but since I want to try new things, a blanket seemed like a good idea.  It is a little intimidating, because that’s a lot of yarn!  I think yarn sales will be my best friend for a while.  I’m not completely sure about colors yet- I like the idea of a rainbow, or something a bit more gradient.  But I am determined to do a blanket…

I’ve been re-listening to the We’re Alive podcast, and it’s definitely one of my favorite podcasts.  I’m really bummed that it’s ending this summer, but I guess it had to come to an end eventually.  I’ve been listening to it for a couple years now, and it’s weird to think that it’s coming to end.  But there’s also that part of me that wants to know how it ends, you know?

I’m also loving Welcome To Night Vale, which is another podcast I’m really into right now.  It’s a podcast I always look forward to listening to, and it’s actually hysterical to listen to.

I thought this post on BookRiot was really interesting.  To sum up, it’s about how people are judged for how much they read, and it got me thinking about reading and people being all judgy and stuff. Speaking of readers, I love this infographic thingy I’ve floating around pinterest lately.  I really need to take a closer look at it.  Maybe I’ll even talk about it one of these days!  Also: I love the idea of a book jar!  I have a mason jar, now I just need some pretty paper.  That I can get while I’m looking at the sale yarn at Michael’s or something.  I’ve also seen this floating around pinterest, and I love the idea of using it because my TBR pile is overwhelming.

You know how I was going to start exercising?  Yeah…that hasn’t happened.  I was sick for a week or so last month, and I just never got into the habit.  Now that I’m not sick, I am totally going to be doing the Blogilates workouts.  I’ve done a few, and I’m always ridiculously sore the next day, but it’s worth it, because I’ll be healthier and taking care of myself and all that jazz.

I think that’s all for my current obsessions, but I’ll be back with the usual book reviews and stuff!

And I think I shall leave everyone with the story of my life right now:
