Circe is great. Enjoy!
I have a steadily increasing amount of things I have to do or want to make time for and I’m freaking out. So... that’s not fun. I don’t have a free weekend until April and the next few weeks are also full up with post-work stuff.
Oh I gotta make time for Kingdom of Copper. I did read through City of Brass quickly, despite its size. I was also more interested in Ali than Nahri. I don’t like Dara at all and she spends so much time thinking about him it got on my nerves.
I recently finished Lincoln in the Bardo, which really was wonderful. I love books that start out a bit opaque and then really open up as you get deeper in. Now I’m reading Strange the Dreamer, which I’m very into. The writing is so good. I’m also trying to re-commit to finishing War and Peace.
There are a few things I took out and asked for her ok.
This is dumb and not that bad, just annoying. My coworker and I are putting a fun little article up on our website and we split up the writing. She just sent me her piece and it’s sooooooo long and full of anecdotal stories about her life and like... we’re not a lifestyle brand or a cooking blog. We work at a…
It’s a 3 day weekend and I’m getting my perfect weekend! Saturday: socializing, Sunday: errands and chores, Monday: chill the heck out on the couch!
I’m having one of those. I’m so goddamn tired and have been all week, despite getting a snow day on Tuesday. So I took a melatonin last night and it didn’t work at all, but of course now that it’s day time and I’m at work, I feel like I could easily fall asleep for a few hours.
Our office is officially open but last time there was snow it took me 10 hours to get home, so my boss very thoughtfully told me to work from home. So in addition to getting my shit done I’m hoping to finish my book and watch some movies. Very excited to be in my jammies all day!
Happy: I’m wearing a new sweater. I got it on sale and I really like how I look/feel in it!
A friend and I went to visit another friend who lives out of town for the weekend and then last night I met different friends for dinner and a concert. The weekend was nice and the concert was pure bliss, but I have a hard time when I don’t get my alone time, so I’m really looking forward to this day being over so I…
Actually not leaving early anymore because the friend who’s picking me up misjudged how long it would take to get here from her place (by which I mean didn’t bother checking Google maps until she was getting ready to leave).
I thought for the first time in several weeks of an overwhelming amount of work I was going to have an easy Friday. But OF COURSE NOT! And I’m leaving early today, which was supposed to be nice, but now it’s just extra stressful.
Yeah, after a few years they got to be friends again. My mom and stepmom get along really well too. All very mature.
So a few weeks ago my mom broke her knee. My father is now staying with her to help her out. It’s obviously incredibly nice of him to do that, and I’m appreciative that someone can be there for her, but my parents have been divorced since I was 2 and it is FREAKING WEIRD to call my mom and hear her talking to my…
I’m enjoying some berries and trying to stay calm amidst a continuing exceptionally busy time at work. And I’m hoping that I won’t be too tired when I get home to catch up on some movies I took out from the library.
So funny, I also looked much more Dominican when I was younger, and I get asked if I’m Arab a lot too (but I think that’s because of my last name.)
White people are definitely not okay.
omg yes! Whenever there’s a siren in a song I’m listening to in the car I’m convinced a cop is behind me.
