I finally managed to finish Rooftop Prince... Thoughts and spoilers under cut )

I'm through episode 6 of Big. It's OK. Although how they've managed to AIR six episodes without anything really happening is beyond me. Things appear to have picked up with episode 5, so I'm hoping the drama is finding it's groove. We'll see.
I've really been awful about this Livejournal thing. I blame the fact that I haven't really been watching any dramas. I'm on episode 11 of Rooftop Prince and that's pretty much the only show I've been watching since my last update. I'm pretty pumped about watching Big simply because of the Gong Yoo/Lee Min-jung/Hong Sisters trifecta. I hope it doesn't suck. Someone tell me it doesn't suck.

Dramas have kind of fallen by the wayside because any tv I've been watching has been with other people (two sisters - one bonus one is living with us this summer). And dramas are kind of a niche thing, you know? So, when I do have alone time I have to decide between dramas or books and reading's been winning out as of late. I finally got around to reading A Dance With Dragons or whatever the lastest ASOIAF book is called. What a waste of my time. I wish I could understand why that book needed to be so long when NOTHING HAPPENED. Maybe I'll just stick to summaries in the future, since I still vaguely care about what happens to Arya and Sansa.

And then I did an A:TLA rewatch. But now my plate it clear! I am determined to finish Rooftop Prince. Although, I could very well get distracted by Big. WHO KNOWS. Time will tell. But, I've crossed the halfway point with RP despite it kind of boring me. Hopefully it picks up again. I still wish it was just a show about Park Ha and the three sidekicks. The prince and Se-na can go be on another show as far as I'm concerned.

SUMMER TV! I'm finishing up a rewatch of True Blood's last season before I start the next. I also have Bunheads on dvr, so I hope that's fun. I'm really only checking it out because of Amy Sherman-Palladino. Besides Pretty Little Liars I tend to steer clear of ABC Family shows. Jane by Design makes me watch to kill puppies.

Work has been pretty great. I got a raise so that's super. I'm supervising people which is a little scary but also cool? I want to be a good manager, but I'm dealing with some big internal battles because I don't want people to hate me. I just need to get more comfortable with confronting people when they do things wrong instead of going behind the scenes and cleaning it up for them. It just sometimes seems easier if I do everything because I know it's going to get done correctly... but it also makes my life kind of impossible.

As far as summer plans go I think I'm going to go on a cemetery tour! Sounds fun, right? :D I've inherited a bunch of family genealogy information. It's all in binders, so I've made it my mission to move everything into the digital world. It's all from my dad's side of the family and mostly his father's side. I have information going back to 1860, when they packed up and moved from Virginia to Illinois via Indiana. I have much, much less on my grandmother's family. So once I get all of my paternal grandfather's information squared away I'd love to delve into that and really learn how to research this whole ancestry thing. Because I really have no idea where to start when it comes to that. There is all kinds of conflicting/incomplete information out there. I think people just said whatever they wanted when the census came to town.

Anyway, I want to go get shots of tombstones because I'm creepy like that.

EDIT: OH ALSO! I wanted to catch up on everything I've missed, since I haven't even been ON this website in ages. And it wouldn't let me go past 120 entries on my friends list! D:
Hey guys! Sorry for neglecting for lj... again. I've been spending my online time over on tumblr for the most part.

Real life is been... quite full. Especially in the work realm. And I just haven't been watching that many dramas. I gave King 2 Hearts a try for four episodes but was bored (not quite to tears... but nearly there). I think I just need to stay away from North Korean spy dramas. I don't even know what that show was trying to be. But if it was trying to be dull, it really succeeded. Maybe it got better after 4 episodes, maybe other people liked it, but its not for me. And I'm past staying with dramas I don't care anything about.

I did randomly start Rooftop Prince even though I had no intention of doing so. And I surprisingly REALLY enjoy it. I'm totally in it for the comedic aspect of it, because the romance (through six episodes) leaves me completely unengaged. I think I just don't care about the male lead. But when the drama stays in the comedy realm I am completely on board. I haven't laughed like that at a drama in a long time.

I'm also slowly watching My Girl which is pretty good. Yoo-rin is fantastic. Gong-chan has the potential to be so, I'm still waiting since I've heard so many great things about him. But MAN, I can't be the only one who intensely dislikes Lee Jun-ki's character, right?

OH! And I watched the SPEC SP and like all things SPEC it was great. And made me want to watch the drama again, which I probably will.
