FEELING: I am working on healing. I’m trying to eat better, and work through some personal issues that I’ve been having. I’m trying to let go of a lot of my control issues, enjoy just “being”, and not worrying.
WATCHING: I just discovered Breaking Amish – talk about gripping! I’m also enjoying the animated series Batman Beyond. Old Bruce Wayne is adorably curmudgeonly. Terry is a cutie who reminds me of Buffy Summers. And the main title design was by Darwyn Cooke, who I saw speak at NYCC ’13! Speaking of, how much does the opening sequence remind you of the credits for Law & Order: SVU??? Can’t be just me!
LISTENING TO: Mellow soft music – I believe you’d call it “coffeehouse rock”? Ingrid Michaelson, Meklit Hadero, She & Him…let’s not call it “hipster music” even though it TOTALLY is.
READING: I think I have a problem! I’m still in the middle of The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (which I read on lunch breaks at work), and I’m slowly digesting Arkham Asylum (I guess I’m on a Batman kick?) because the artwork is SO AMAZING. Meanwhile, I found a copy of U.K. LeGuin’s The Left Hand of Darkness which I read in college and LOVED, and I’m dying to dig in again to remember why it left such an impression on me!
WORKING ON: I had knit my grandmother a fluffy purple cowl, and loved it so much, that I made one for myself! Since the yarn went on sale (and my own washes and wears so well) I’ve been using up leftover yarn on them. I’m a knitwit, this year, what can I say? I also ordered some patches off Amazon to adorn my thrifted backpack with and can’t wait to snazz it up!
THINKING ABOUT: Traveling back to Amsterdam. I was only there for a few days and it was so beautiful! I’d love to go for longer this time. Fingers crossed I win the lottery!
EATING: I have rediscovered raw kale in a big way! I also discovered a cute raw/vegan/GF restaurant in Greenwich Village called Rockin’ Raw and I think it may be my new favourite place! I went there on Pi Day and had amazing chiles rellenos and raw pasta and eggplant and of course, PIE!
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Rising temperatures, long walks, and settling into a feeling of contentment free from worry. Same as last month.
MAKING ME HAPPY: Learning how to play Magic the Gathering!
