What’s going on? What’s going on? Eh, not that much but honestly I had no other topic in mind and really wanted to post today so …. awkward … this seemed like the best choice to post something today. Seriously, though, I have no excuse for my lack of writing and want to stop being such an absentee blogger. Just been lazy, that’s all.
But at least I’m a honest sort of lazy.
Currently: What I’m Doing or On My Mind
Sometimes I feel like I lead the most boring life, which is on me because I choose (to an extent) how I spend my time. I also know the dangers of comparing lives (you never win that battle) and some also lie about their so-called fab life via their heavily curated (or blatantly staged, overly-filtered and/or photoshopped) social media shares.
Yo, I’m see what you did. At least I’m honest about my snoozeville life.
What I’m Reading
Good news first: I am reading. Oh, happy day indeed. And with enthusiasm. Okay, I am mostly enthusiastic about placing a ton of books on hold at my library. You also know what this means: they will all become available at once! #FirstWorldProblems #BookNerd #iLoveBooks and #iOveruseHashtagsForNoApparentReason
After seeing Verity by Colleen Hoover reviewed repeatedly on the last Show Us Your Books Link-Up, I had serious book FOMO and was pissed my library didn’t own it. Now they do (or will after approving my request) and I’m #1 on the hold list.
So what I am actually reading? Well, everyone agreed in last month’s book review that cookbooks count … so I’m reading Chrissy Teigen’s Hungry For More.
What I’m Eating
Obviously, I don’t believe in moderation since I’ve gone on a bit of a cookbook spree. I still have Ina’s cookbook, both of Chrissy’s cookbooks and I’ve made … absolutely zero things from them. But I will. Hopefully. Maybe. I mean I want to eat lots of their yummy-looking recipes but the making (and cleaning up afterwards) part has me like, nah, too tired. Like I said, I’m a honest sort of lazy! But I WILL have a recipe on March 7th (said with mucho swagger and authority because I already made it) to share. It’s not from one of the aforementioned cookbooks, although it is something warm and comforting for these dang, chilly winter days, even in California.
Spoiler Alert: It’s something for St. Patty’s Day.
What I’m Watching
Not too much. Sometimes I’m all about TV (or books for that matter) or I watch very little. Right now I mainly watch Blackish and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Since there is something to be pissed about most days, humor and silliness keep me sane. Drama has become unappealing because I watch CNN for that shit.
We all scared, Cardi. We all scared.
What I’m Thinking about Every Day
2020. It pleases me to see so many Democrats running, which isn’t a bad thing to me. It shows excitement and lots of possibilities. And what matters most, is that we ultimately back the nominee. It’s okay to have favorites (Kamala and Amy are mine) and to roll your eyes at some (Bernie) but in the end, we put differences aside and stand together.
What’s Next. I’m at a crossroads in my life and need to figure some stuff out. It’s scary but I’m trying to focus on the potential too. Because potential is all around. But you gotta claim it. Good things don’t just present themselves; you have to make it happen. A hard reality for a depressed, anxiety-ridden, introvert but also exciting, which is what I’m choosing to focus on. Most of the time, cuz I’m also human.
Max Man. I did not realize yesterday was Love Your Pet Day. I love my cat a lot, which most of you already know. He keeps me sane in an insane world. He annoys me. And makes me laugh. He is personality plus and the best cat a depressed girl could have ever hoped to find at her local humane society. I knew the moment I saw him that he was my guy.
And I was right. He is my guy.
What’s Making Me Laugh
Lordy, we need laughter so much these days. And I love to laugh and this is my happy place.
This makes me laugh so hard. Also really miss summer.
That expression is priceless. Also, I do not put toilet paper in my toilet paper holder because it is cat nip to Max. He’s rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ kind of cat.
This is true. Spring Rolls indeed.
Honestly, 2019 feels like a bit of a retread of 2018 thus far. Good days. Bad days. A lot of uncertainty and unease, which is stressful. Seriously, I breakout in hives daily, without an obvious irritant besides stress. So I’m working on that. Trying to find my zen, my fun, my joy. It’s there, lurking around and waiting to be noticed.
Your turn! Tell me something new with you!
