Truth or Truth?

As I've previously talked about at length, I get bored easily.

For the past few years my friends and I have developed a game called Truth or Truth.Well, 'developed' is probably a strong word considering it's basically Truth or Dare for lazy people. It's fun to just sit around with friends and not have to bother with "I dare you to run outside naked," when you know that no one sane is actually going to do that for real.

What intrigues me about Truth or Truth is that you can ask anything and people, ideally, have to tell the truth. This way you can get away with asking personal or borderline inappropriate questions, because the randomness is the best part of the game. And let's be totally honest, the game is at its best when everyone has had a few cocktails.

Truth or Truth is always fun to play with people you've just met because, obviously, you know nothing about them at that point. But I sometimes find it to be more fun to play with close friends that you know really well, because then you have to dig deep for questions you don't already know the answers to. The actual question-asking usually fades after a while and the game almost always leads to a really interesting conversation between old friends and new.

I've gotten myself in tons of trouble with this game because I'm brutally honest with my answers and ask extremely blunt questions. The other day I was playing with a friend of mine, and it while he was uncomfortable with it at first, he totally came around and we ended up playing for hours. It's pretty much just a fun way to get the conversation started.

Try it! Let me know how it goes...the good, the bad, and the ugly!

Remember these guys?

When I was an awkward fourth-grader back in 1998, two things were painfully true.

1.) I wore stirrup leggings...regularly.
2.) I was completely obsessed with Hanson.

And I mean obsessed. I remember spending hours taking the staples out of  Bop Magazine posters so I could plaster them all over my walls.

Let's all take a trip back in our 10-year-old minds. For nostalgia's sake:



Ah the memories.

Well apparently these guys are back at it. Their new album "Shout it Out" was release last week and apparently has a whole new "sound."

So of course I had to listen to it here.

I'll let you make your own decisions about it, but make sure you come back and tell me what you thought of it!

I suddenly have an urge to see what the Spice Girls are up to...

When in Rome, do....?

I have been back in Rome for almost three weeks now, which is just about the amount of time it takes to get bored around here.

For the past four years I've been living in Albany while going to college, and just coming home for summers and short breaks. Without fail, every time I hit the two or three week mark, I've seen my friends and had some fun, and then I start to get bored.

Albany isn't necessarily the most exciting city ever, but there is definitely a lot to do. You can go see a local band play at some hip venue, go to a festival in Washington Park, or grab a few drinks at a nice little bar. I need to find things like this to do around here before I start losing my mind completely.

Now I was born and raised in Rome, but I honestly didn't have much time to explore growing up. I was a senior in high school when I got my license, and then left for college a few months after that. But now that I know I'm going to be in the area for a while, I  really want to experience all of the things to do around here. The only thing is, I need help finding out what these "things to do" are.

What are your favorite cool/interesting things to do in or around Rome? I'm talking festivals, markets, shows, plays, museums, bars, restaurants, and any other events you can think of!

I am a Gleek

I thought there would be a point in time when I would stop finding television shows about high school entertaining, but somehow, that point hasn't come yet.

One of my biggest guilty pleasures is Fox's hit show Glee. Let's face it, the concept is genius. Pair a dramedy set in a high school with musical numbers from Queen to Lady Gaga, and you can attract almost all women ages 7 to 70. They also have a group of characters that are so diverse, you're sure to find someone in the show to relate to on some level.

Perhaps I am obsessed find this show so entertaining because I was a theater kid in high school, but who knows. The fact that Corey Monteith is cute as a button doesn't hurt either.

I encourage everyone to tune in to at least one episode and see what you think! Then, of course, come back here and let me know!
