Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Squandering Summer Edition

I feel like I’m not doing summer right this year. I made the conscious decision to not overbook myself this year and to spend more time at home. This was partially a cost savings measure since I’ll probably be in need of a new car soon, but also so I could spend more time with my little nephew.  I didn’t want to miss out on these important few months because I was away. In theory, this was supposed to be a summer when I didn’t miss out on things going on locally and that I would spend more time with my friends here. In practice, that hasn’t much come to fruition – which is partially my fault for not advertising that I am in town. But the invites to BBQs and patio drinking haven’t been pouring in like I hoped and now it’s already the middle of July and I feel like I haven’t accomplished much of anything on my summer time bucket list. So I really need to kick it in gear for these final weeks of summer. I’m going to visit that Game of Thrones bar in DC if it’s the only thing I do.

So while I try to figure out a summer’s worth of activities into five weeks, get yourself caught up on the pop culture you might have missed while you were making better use of your summer.
