My professor seems to think so. But first, a bit of catch up. Two big things… I’ve reentered grad school for the third time. Perhaps I’ll graduate by the time I’m officially geriatric, although that’s not really the point. I now cohost a podcast with a close friend, because I needed something to do during COVID lockdown and I’m a horrible bread baker. Both of … Continue reading Virtuous Creativity
Sup internet? I’m finally feeling better and minus a kinda gross cough, am back to normal. And officially on Christmas vacation for a couple of weeks, so that’s a nice feeling. It will be busy, as this time of year always is but I always feel like its a good time to reset myself in a way. Kiddo’s dance recital was cute but two shows … Continue reading books and movies and a post
I’m reading the best book. Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. The Jazz Age, F. Scott, New York City, great writing…what’s not to love? I think I’m going to give The Paris Wife a go next. I gave up on Winter’s Tale because it was boring me to death. I know many people who cannot bear to finish a book once they’ve started … Continue reading books. poetry.
I’m over the holidays and Christmas “vacation”. I’m ready to go back to work. And now there is the threat of Snowmaggedon on Sunday night so there’s more than a snowball’s chance in hell that Monday will be a snow day and I will go crazy. I’m overly dramatic, I realize. Its been awesome to hang with kiddo these past couple of weeks and we’ve … Continue reading stuff ‘n thangs
I’m not going to say “time flies” because I hate it when people say that. It doesn’t fly, it passes at a constant rate. Its your perception of events within that time that make it seem to “fly”. But whatever. So, August 1. Like most other days, although made much nicer by lunch at a favorite hole in the wall joint with a friend who … Continue reading Hiya August
Just finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I’d tried it once, dropped it, and then picked it up again a few months later. I gave it 5 stars. Its been a while since a book has made me cry and this one did towards the end. Not that it’s exactly difficult to make me cry, but for a book to do … Continue reading the latest on my reading plate
No workout or run last night and I’m ok with that. I intended to but instead fell asleep with kiddo around 9:00. Got up once to move to my own bed and slept till 6:00. This is unusual and qualifies as a restful night for me. I’ll take it. Tonight however…it’s on like Donkey Kong. I’m going to redo my bad run from Sunday. I … Continue reading sleep trumps most everything
While looking through all the blog templates on WordPress and fidgeting with the format I noticed that I have a tiny little section called “Currently Reading” that I haven’t updated in oh, at least a year. Mainly because for the past year or so I’ve been reading several pregnancy/childbirth/parenting books all at the same time and didn’t feel the need to share. Now I have the urge to … Continue reading books ‘n books ‘n books
