Watching: Parks and Rec on Netflix. My roommate introduced me to it last year and thus inaugurated a period of lit-trally calling each other "beautiful tropical fish" all the time. I'm still way behind (because I stop watching everything I like, natch), but Parks and Rec has been bringing some much needed hilarity into my life lately.

I've also been taking pictures of my outfits daily, to compile in a post to come (probably mid-month). Here is a sneak peek:
