Guest bloggers needed!

This blog has been pretty quiet this month, and I have a feeling it will remain quiet throughout the summer. (Remember that six-week European backpacking trip I mentioned earlier? Well, it's starting next month, and I don't think I'm packing my laptop. Gasp.) So, I'm looking for guest bloggers! Of course I would love posts that match my blog content (primarily travel and books, but also post-grad life or collegiate life if you are still a student!). Please email me at semicharmedkol[at]gmail[dot]com with your blog information and post idea(s), and I will get back to you as soon as possible!

Note: Guest post submissions are now closed. Thanks to everyone who emailed me!

Too good to multitask.

While traveling this year, I've developed the habit of watching television on my iPad while blogging/working on my laptop, or vice versa. I can rarely ever watch my favorite shows on television, but luckily most channels have free apps that allow me to watch shows the morning after they air. Sometimes, I stream a mindless show on my Netflix account while working (think How I Met Your Mother or Glee), but there are three shows I can't multitask while watching because they are just too darn good.

1. Scandal

I was expecting a trashy scandal, but instead I got intelligence and wit! Score!
