The first is an old favorite - Big Brother. Serial and I are both pretty into it (not stalking the live feeds type into it, but really excited about new episodes) and we watch every season, but this season is kind of crazy. There is a ton of racial tension and one girl in particular (cough, Aaryn, cough) is saying a lot of ignorant comments. So much so that she has lost her job in real life, but doesn't know it yet because she is sequestered in the house. Drama.
The second is a Netflix series that has been getting a lot of press, but I managed to not know about until I stumbled it across it in my "Top 10 for Jill" queue. Netflix, you know me so well. Except that one time you recommended Toddlers in Tiaras... what was that??
Anyway, Orange is the New Black was originally a book that I read awhile back, about a woman who is serving a jail sentence for a crime she committed 10 years prior. I LOVED the book and stumbled upon this show while I was sick on the couch one day. Needless to say I tore through it. I think it took me three days to watch the whole season and now I'm desperately hoping they make another. It has been getting great reviews (here and here) so I'm guessing they will.
Speaking of my high school friends, I was digging around in old pics the other day and found some real gems. We were group texting them and making fun of each others' high school style for a good hour. Yes, the pictures were in a scrapbook and cut into those shapes to fit. And yes, I had blond hair. (Girls, please don't hate me for putting these on the internet...at least they weren't the freshman year pics)
I'm not a before-and-after picture type person so don't expect that. But I did take measurements and I'll report back on any changes. If you're interested in before-and-after pics, Holly is doing a link up at the end of the month for anyone doing a Jillian 30 day challenge in July.
