Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Vacation Booked Edition

I have commitment issues. This has manifested itself in many aspects of my life, but most recently reared its head when it came to planning for my upcoming vacation. I am, by nature, an organized person. For me, sometimes planning a trip is almost as fun as actually going on the trip. I love exploring the different things to see, eat, and do when I am away from home. I have the Pinterest boards to prove it.

But getting me to actually commit to flights is always a struggle. When it comes to airfare, I’m always playing a game of chicken, hoping that the price of flights will drop further before I am willing to book. I’ve known that friends and I are going to Austin for months now, but I was convinced that I could get a better deal (not only do I like to maximize my time, but my dollars as well). This strategy is nerve-wracking and I wind up booking when I finally stress myself out enough to make a decision. This week, I was starting to put myself in a panic as flights were actually getting more expensive – not the trend I was looking for. I was worried that I was going to blow my travel budget before I even got to Austin, but then, like an angel from above, I found a tremendous deal. Even then I briefly hesitated, wondering if something better may come along. Much like Alexander Hamilton and Angelica Schuyler, I’m never satisfied. But then common sense prevailed and I made the purchase. Now my vacation is real and I can finally let myself get excited for it. It’s only three days off from work, but man do I need them.

Something else to get excited for – this week’s pop culture roundup. As always, I’ve tried to bring you the best that the world of pop has to offer. So while I scout Austin for the best breakfast tacos and BBQ, get yourself caught up on what you may have missed.
