Oh hey there!

I'm back! But not really, I just have things I want to say about Sense8 and I want to avoid spoilers for people who haven't finished it yet.

And I can do cuts here.Collapse )

Life at the moment

My life is an amorphous sort of thing right now. Sometime just before I left school I lost the ability to look ahead. I live very in the moment. Sometimes I know what I should do - I should get a new job, I should go out more - but it's very hard to take any action toward that end. This probably sounds bleak. I am not unhappy. I'm not at my best, but I'm far from my worst. I'm quite lonely, but I have friends, better friends now than at any previous point in my life. I don't take that for granted. I love them very much. There are things I wish I had, but not so strongly. There are things I enjoy, although not with the sort of abundant glee I have felt at times past. I wonder if it's the medication. Or my age. I am glad for things that make me smile. I am more or less content. I miss my family. I wish I had more security. I worry my computer will die and I'll be cut off from everyone. I worry I'll run into some medical expense that leaves me broke.

I thought 2014 might be better. It wasn't, really. It just happened. Perhaps 2015 is the year I've been waiting for.

I read fewer books, but more articles. I watched The Daily Show. I was more informed. I got a smart phone and spent a lot of time on Twitter, skimming for interesting links and good jokes. I didn't fall in love this year, but I did find a really nice lip gloss. I watched a lot of documentaries, and a lot of TV. I saw ten movies in the theatre, mostly with friends.

I finally colored my hair.

I didn't do much knitting. I didn't do many crafts. I bought a lot of makeup, but I've had fun with that. I baked sometimes, mostly staples: banana bread, chocolate chip cookies.

I need to read more books. I need to craft more. I need to save money. I need to meet new people. I need to get a new job. I need to exercise.

It's the 2014 Book Post!

Blurry book haul!

book haul4?
I keep telling myself I'm going to grab fewer titles so I can keep up with my reading and feedback (when did I become such a slow reader?) and I keep ending up with about the same number of books every time the reps visit.

Probably the two most exciting things in this pile, for me, are the John Waters book, Carsick; and Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle(!!) Beeteedubs, it has a blurb from Joseph Fink! I have two... three books I should probably finish before I start it, though.
