While most of the United States was swimming, barbecuing, and enjoying actual sunlight yesterday, I was voluntarily cooped up in my apartment binge-watching television and wondering how I’d become so lazy. I couldn’t even get it together enough to post a Monday Mood. Now it’s Tuesday, but I figured hey, better late than never, right? I hope everyone had a fantastic 4th—take this red, white, and blue collage as a sign of my patriotism.
