Five Things I’m Addicted to This Week

Evernote.

In fact, I’m writing this on Evernote. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Evernote is both a program and an app that allows you to write out, screen shot, and audio record your notes. The possibilities are legitimately endless and I’ve taken to using it for school, blogging, and just my general life to stay organized. You can also sync everything to all of your devices. Delicious.

Fonts.
Okay I just completely blame Carmen – she made a post about fonts a few weeks ago that I stumbled across and now am promptly addicted. Ever since I got CS6, all I want to do is graphic design. Do I know how to do anything in graphic design? Hecks nah! But that doesn’t mean I don’t try. Well, I mean, I download loads of fonts. That sort of counts. Here are a few of my favorites: here, here, here, and here (but mostly I just love the fact it’s called ‘Swagger’).
iPads.
Annie got me on the iPad bandwagon and Instant Gratification Z is determined to get one. I like to think I’d use it for reading class textbooks, watching Netflix at the gym…but I know I’ll mostly use it for Fruit Ninja. Regardless, if anyone owns one and says yey or nay, let me know!
Joppie.
Oh, joppie. How do I explain you to those who haven’t been graced with your presence. This, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the best sauces around. A bit onion-y, a bit garlic-y, some tang mixed in there…add in the fact that it looks yellow and disgusting slobbered all over your fries, and dang you got me sold! I go back to Amsterdam in a week with my parents and I’m determined to be bought fries constantly…but only with this or American sauce. And yes, there is something called ‘American sauce.’
Tina Fey’s Bossypants.
I’m always on the hunt for a new audiobook, especially if it’s read by the author. David Sedaris is one of my favorites, as well as Garrison Keillor. I read Bossypants about a year ago, but recently I decided the audiobook would probably be worth an investment. And oh. my. I didn’t think Tina could get any funnier, BUT SHE DID. Perfect read – er, listen – for anyone who loves her comedic timing and excellent imitation of voices. Basically she’s just perfect and I want to be her okay goodbye.
