i'm living in procrastination nation right now, and i kind of like it

The now has stopped falling already. Everything in the city feels quiet and alone. Not that I would know much more than that because I'm holed up in my room, repetitively watching reruns of the 2012 olympics- specifically, the equestrian section. It's all so peaceful, a little bit after Christmas and a few weeks after Hanukkah, a few days before New Year's Eve. It's the break for everybody that I know, and I'm not complaining.
It feels I'm putting everything off until the next day, where I just procrastinate again. And you know what? I like it. It feels really, really, good.
I am reading the Gossip Girl series for the first time. Can you believe it? Everybody I can think of right now has either read every single book in the collections, or watched the TV show. I've done neither before. I would tell you that I've been reading the books the cute, traditional way, with little English tea cups and all of that, except so far, I haven't tried a single type of tea that I actually ended up liking.
Gossip Girl makes me want to write my own book. I don't really know about what exactly it would be, or what it would be called, or anything. I just like the idea of it, and as you can probably tell, I also really like to write.

Umbrellas are suddenly so into the picture. Everybody has them in all kinds of sizes and patterns and whatever else the umbrella world has thought of adding. I guess they seem kind of romantic or something like that. The two pictures I  picked out above certainly seem that way to me!
This is me at the beach yesterday morning. I was wearing these enormous, oversized jeans and a giant coat that were so comfortable and cuddly (if you know what I mean)! I was just standing there, watching the still water, when my mom (who is a photographer by hobby) took a picture of it. I look like a dork. But honestly? I don't care. I like it.

I know what you mean about procrastinating, the time after christmas and before new year always seems to be filled with procrastination <3

I love all these pictures! Although the one of the teacups is the cover of one of my least favourite books I've ever read, and I'm now having terrible flashbacks....

Oh thank you! I'm sorry to hear about the teacups... what book was it? Now you've actually gotten my curious!
