I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend! I'm sad that it has to end, but another work week is ahead. I guess it's good though, at least it gives me some time to think of some crafty ideas for next weekend. It's a vicious cycle!
I enjoyed this afternoon with some homemade cookies and some Hulu. Not the best combination if you're on a diet, but I can always start my diet next week, right? Or the week after that? Ha!
I can't really decide if Hulu is the best thing since sliced bread, or the worst thing since Oprah went off-air. I'm actually pretty torn about it.
On the one hand, Hulu brings all of your entertainment needs into one convenient location. It's like the Pinterest of entertainment, and I love that I can catch up on all of the things I miss throughout the week.
But, on the other hand, the episodes are all right there in front of your face. You don't have to wait a long-suspensful week to find out how each cliff hanger is solved. Plus, the commercial breaks are only about 1 minute long. That's not even enough time to fold a load of laundry! It's like a productivity death trap! Once you start watching something, it's difficult to walk away and do something meaningful with the rest of your day.
Even worse, when you finally finish up the episodes of your show Hulu takes it upon itself to start streaming another show that it "recommends" for you! Maybe I'm just a sucker for this gimmick, but it gets me each time!
So, I started some of the episodes for the next Design Star, and I think I already have my favorites picked. I can't even imagine what it would be like to make it on that show. What an opportunity, but also so much pressure. There's a part of me that thinks I would enjoy it, and another part of me that really loves the process of working out the design challenges of a space over time. Everything in the HGTV world is like design on steroids. It's like the superhero forces of space planning and implementation. I don't think I would work well like that, but I enjoy watching others do it.
One of my absolute favorite designers to watch is David Bromsted. I know, it's not like I'm the only one, but I'm just drawn to his design style and his vibrant personality. It's very challenging to put your heart and soul into designing a space for another person and then hand them the keys and walk away. There's a part of you that just wants to move in with them so that you can enjoy the space along with them, but that's what I love about David. You can just tell that he designs for the client, and the high that he receives from his work is in their happiness with the space, not his. Such a role model! Check out this episode of HGTV'd to see what I'm talking about:
So, now you know that I lazied-up my Sunday afternoon, but what did you do with yours? Did anyone else make cookies? Is Sunday the day that you get together as a family, or maybe the day that you get outside?
Sunday is my recoup day. It's the day that I try to relax a bit before going back to work on Monday...so in some odd way, I'm kinda glad that Hulu sucked me in. It's what I'll need to re-energize for the week to come!
