FEELING: Excited! February has my second-favourite holiday – Valentine’s Day! As a (usually hopeless) romantic, I’m a sucker for chocolate and hearts and chocolate and roses and chocolate and love songs and chocolate! During February, everything red and pink is VALENTINES!!! Lovey-dovey and sweet and perfect and I’m thrilled!
LISTENING TO: I have a Pandora station called “Badass Bitches” with Liz Phair, Courtney Love, Fiona Apple, and other 90’s and riot grrl songstresses. It’s actually really soothing to listen to screaming angry feminists!
READING: I just finished In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, and while I actively loathed the book, I couldn’t put it down! Weird, huh? I guess it’s a “love to hate” book. I also recently went to a Geek Girls Brunch which got me so excited about reading more comics! I devoured Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky, and I’m thinking about taking the plunge into Saga next. Recommends?
WORKING ON: I made a pretty intense to-do list at the beginning of the year, and I’m happy to say I’ve been making real progress on it! I’m working on securing employment for next year, and I’ve set some pretty lofty career goals for myself that I’m excited to work towards!
THINKING ABOUT: Valentine’s Day like ALL THE TIME. I’m also always preoccupied with work, for better or worse. And I’ve been really thinking seriously about my life as well – thinking about what I want and how to get it. You know, serious adulting stuff.
MAKING ME HAPPY: My Wii is hooked up again, and I’m loving losing MarioKart and Wii bowling to my boyfriend – and then schooling him at Just Dance! The kids at school are starting to warm up to me, and having friends makes all the difference!
