Currently Reading: I read salt. by Nayyirah Waheed in February. Waheed is an Instagram poet that published a couple of collections of poems. I really relate to her words and style. She’s fiercly feminist and tough on white people, but so many of the poems were really helpful to me last month. I’m also still working on The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. I’m flip it open every now and then. I need to finish it, and crack open something new.
Currently Singing: Worst In Me by Julia Michaels.
Currently Watching: Bojack Horseman and Cheers. I’m on the last season of Cheers which is very sad.
Currently Loving: Coming home to my own home and a happy dog who misses me.
Currently Celebrating: It’s Lent, and I’m doing a very bad job at being Lenten. I’ve been meatless every Friday, but I prefer to take up some routine or ritual that is reflective or good. I still haven’t thought of something.
Currently Thinking: I’m currently preoccupied with the house projects I still need to do.
- Sand and finish the hardwood floors.
- Take measurements of the kitchen and attempt to design my “dream floor plan.”
- Remove/throw away the old furniture and junk that the previous owner left in the house.
- Get the workout/studio room in a functional state.
- Put shades or curtains on the kitchen windows.
- Buy a couch and chairs.
- Clean the upstairs.
Currently Worrying: That I need to start saving for a newer car. I could definitely drive mine longer, but I’m worried something else will be wrong with it tomorrow. I’ve put almost as much into it as I paid for it – of course it wasn’t that expensive. My plan is to hang on for a little while and build a savings. I think if I hold out and wait for something to happen, I will at least be comfortable making the decision to buy a newer one.
