loving | weekends in the middle of nowhere. watching onyx play and voluntarily swim (a little) in the lake. rooting for don mattingly to be don mattingly (come onnnn, mets).
working | on getting up early (earlier, at least) and creating a new morning routine. it’s a work in progress.
hating | allergies. god. guys, I never got allergies until after I came back from Denmark. I think that one year away killed any immunity I may have had to all the zillions of allergens that now attack me at least twice a year. at best i get hit with itchy eyes and a general “foggy” head feeling. at worst I’m literally incapacitated for a couple days.
wishing | to see a weather forecast where the high temp starts with a 6. honestly, I know it’s lame and annoying to constantly
complain talk about the weather but for fuck’s sake. I haven’t experienced temps below 70 degrees in I don’t know how long. does anyone have an extra room in Alaska I can move to for the next few months?
listening | turnpike troubadours, aaron watson, jason isbell, sturgill simpson. all sorts of podcasts. and Garth Brooks, in preparation for SEEING HIM LIVE IN NOVEMBER OH MY GOD I CANNOT WAIT.
writing | 750 words a day, and I’m starting to churn out some story outlines and character sketches. lots of ideas starting to percolate.
buying | a plaid shirt from target. because yes, I needed another one.
reading | harry potter. and it is so good.
planning | Christmas gifts. oh yes. I keep running lists and notes for ideas of what to buy people all year, but around this time I try to really pay attention and plan who I’m going to shop for and what I want to get them so I can budget and start looking for deals.
