Girls S2 and My Lame List of Organizational Tactics

Pressed on time tonight; but, GIRLS should be considered for a short binge..

Girls S2
10x30 mins
2013 HBO

Hannah's relapsed OCD emerges after she's got an urgent deadline for her novel. The girls have blossoming and crumbling relationships. What they've been looking for all this time may have been in plain sight, all this time.

Lena Dunham is a woman who knows women- their pain, joys, and unbeknown volatility (sorry; I mean, it happens sometimes). Her performance as Hannah is quintessential in this age of a growing respect for feminism (to whatever extent). Love your body as Dunham, among several cast members, bare al(most) all. 

Marnie tries to believe that having your shit together is too good a deal and sets out to release her free-spirit, while having fiery loins with Charlie, who's rekindling his feelings. This show got me tearing up, laughing along, and strangely 'connecting' with the characters. Even if I'm spurting bullshit, just know that sympathy is not the price for the series.

I had a few [shallow] problems while watching GIRLS Season Two:
Shoshanna is pulling off a sorority girl persona, with a "33-year-old loser" at her side and Hannah has a volatile personality under that warm smile. I don't know how Adam handles her (it's revealed how well he handles her, yeah?) For now, I'm just trying to breathe through all of this  busyness.

Get Organized with Your Life!
-Use a small planner on a weekly basis; or, be compact with a nicely-sized calendar(paper/electronic)
-Set two alarms: one for the weekdays/naps and one for the weekend.
-Organize your drawers with labels: Pants, Pants with Pockets, Jackets, T-Shirts, Tank Tops...
-Name your people contacts.
-Do things the night before.
-Have a laundry schedule.
-Make to-do lists by the day. Keep your lists in notable places (I got weekend day plans, entertainment watchlists, a bucket list..)
-Save one-pagers for the morning; essays should be over a span of two weeks or so.
-Reserve at least 15 minutes at home for legitimate, effective studying
-Have a tidy person in your life, otherwise, be that guy.

Additionally, The Odd Couple (CBS) remake premieres Season Three tonight at 9:30/8:30c. I do t know why that's on my calendar, so just a lil heads up.
