Books I've Read & Places I've Loved: June 2018

Remember last June when I didn't read any books and basically hid from the world all month? I'm very happy to say that this wasn't the case this year. Sure, June had it's ups and downs like every month does, but overall it was still a better month than June of 2017. This month I started an internship and got to spend lots of time with theatre oriented people who love many of the same things I do. I also read a book that gained a permanent place on my bookshelf.

Bossypants by Tina Fey
I've mentioned this a couple of times since October, but this year I really wanted to read more memoirs. I definitely haven't read enough of them yet, but this summer I wanted to change that. Last time I was at Barnes & Noble, I picked this one up. Bossypants was released in 2011, and I've been hearing about it almost ever since. I love Tina Fey, and after watching all of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I decided to give her book a try. I finished it in only a few days, and I loved it. It made me laugh, and gave me much of the same information from Jenna Fischer in The Actor's Life, only with a more humorous take. 

I recommend this book for: Fans of Tina Fey, memoirs written by comedians, or both. 
I don't recommend this book for: Anyone who doesn't like any of the above, and anyone who doesn't like Saturday Night Live



Stage Right Productions
This month, I've been working as an intern for a nearby community theatre. I'm the intern for their production of The Music Man, and so far it's been a really good experience. There's still a few weeks to go, and they're going to be busy weeks, but I'm excited for them. I'm going to miss this internship when it's over, and I'll always be thankful that I had it. So far I've learned a lot that I wouldn't have learned otherwise, and it's all information I needed to know in order to grow and progress. 

This has been a month of adjustment to a simpler life style and a slower life pace. I've spent a lot of time watching movies that have been in my Netflix List for forever (should I rename this Books I've Read, Things I've Watched, and Places I've Loved? Haha, nah...) and journaling. June has been a very reflective month, and I think we all need one of those every once in a while. Here's to July, I hope it's a good one for all of you.
