Happy rainy Friday.
It’s a day in which I feel like being this cat. My (many-windowed) bedroom is at the top floor of our apartment building, so I woke to the howling and pounding of the rain. It would have been a lovely day to stay in bed, but alas, I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep again.
This week was fills with lows, in the form of trying to organize a group housing situation for a wedding on Martha’s Vineyard (I’m about ready to bail on the group thing so if anyone has hotel recommendations, please let me know); and highs, in the form of a tiny baby girl born to my boyfriend’s sister, making me an aunt! (sort of!) I’m already looking forward to buying her all the children’s books (have you hear of these? they’re so cute!) and am currently taking suggestions!
Here are some other things that made my week:
Just discovered this site, and immediately became obsessed with it, particularly this article.
Have you read any of these?
So, so cool.
YES YES YES. (I wrote about this before.)
All too (frighteningly) true.
Also, I wrote this article; my new job is nothing if not interesting.
Reading: This, still. It’s long. But it has picked up, so there’s that. Meanwhile, this came in the mail and it’s taking all my willpower not to abandon everything else I have to do in life and hibernate with it. (I loved this series.)
Writing: Play story! I have figured out how to make my protagonist an actual human, so it’s full steam ahead. Until the next problem. Such is (a writer’s) life.
Watching: I’m constantly amazed by how deeply stupid the characters on this show are, but somehow I can’t look away.
Listening to: My brand’s SoundCloud.
Cooking: These sound weird, but were incredibly good and you should make them ASAP.
Have a wonderful (rainy) weekend!
