Quick July Update

Hey guys! I just realized I hadn’t posted since the 13th. I’m sorry about that. Life just got a little busy trying to get back into the swing of things after my trip. What have been doing you ask?

Well, I saw the new Ghostbusters and enjoyed it very much. My friend Rachel came by and helped me film this video. I did a little skit that I think was a creative way to address the internet nonsense surrounding the movie.

I have also been getting ready for the latest Star Trek movie, Star Trek Beyond by podcasting on Star Trek 6, Star Trek 2009 and Star Trek: Into Darkness with my friend Tom. I loved Star Trek Beyond by the way. For my review click here.

It’s also been a lot of fun digesting all the buzz from Star Wars Celebration and ComicCon. There are a ton of trailers and announcements about franchises I like which make me very excited. I am particularly pumped for the new Disney film coming out in November called Moana. If you missed the international trailer here it is:

I also had fun at book club this week and everyone read my choice, Finding Audrey and to my delight they all liked it! Humor is so subjective so I wasn’t sure what they would think. It’s a great book. You should read it.  On vacation I read a book called Sandition which was interesting. It was started by Jane Austen and then finished by ‘another lady’ and you could kind of tell it was different voice finishing it off but in an interesting way. Either way it was fun to read something fresh from Jane Austen that I hadn’t read before.

I’ve gotten busy with my new ward. I already have a calling on the communications committee and have attended an activity. My movie-watching is going to be a little impacted because now I won’t be seeing movies on Mondays but going to FHE but I think that is a good change!

My roommate of 3 years is moving out. It’s weird to see her room all empty. I’m actually not going to replace her, at least right away unless my brother is interested in the room. I am thinking about using the room as a studio for my youtube work. That way I can have my actual room back to me again. We’ll see. We didn’t see each other that much but I will miss her nonetheless.

I’m getting ready for another open water swim- the only one I decided to do this year. I will be swimming the Deer Creek 1 Mile Race for the 5th time and I’m a little nervous about it. I just don’t feel as prepared as some years but am going twice this week to practice. I’m sure it will turn out fine and be a fun time as it always is.

So there is a lot of busyness and fun times in my life! I hope you are doing great! Let me know what is going on in your life. You seen any movies this summer? Over all it’s been pretty disappointing summer. Have you been reading anything? Anything else going on? Would love to hear all about it.

Sure love ya
