FEELING: A little bit under the weather, but I may just be hungover as I write this! Halloween was such a blast, and I went out for a drink after my tour with my boyfriend and friend and may have overdone it…ughhh… I do have a clean bill of health from my doctor though!
WATCHING: I’ve gone back to my dark roots and watching reality TV dating shows. I’m talking Rock of Love Bus, Daisy of Love, ugh. Terrible stuff. I enjoy it as levity though, while I’m doing other things! And I intersperse those with deeply sad documentaries. It’s called “balance”!
LISTENING TO: Well, my favourite album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, just turned 20 last month! It’s so great to appreciate it now again. I’m also – surprise – really enjoying The Talking Heads and Stop Making Sense. No new music discoveries this month, just rehashing the old stuff. Also – Christmas music. I will probably get sick of it by Nov. 15th, but hey.
READING: I started reading the Life As We Knew It series and I don’t know if I want to continue. I love/hate it. I love it because it’s eerie, devastating, and intense, and I kind of hate it for the same reasons. The end of the world freaks me out sooo much, but I’m really invested in the characters! I think I’ll have to read the rest of the series to make sure they come out okay.
WORKING ON: Writing the crap out of this blog, can’t you tell?! I’ve been making myself crazy trying to post EVERY SINGLE DAY and I think woah, I gotta step back and chill a little bit. I was feeling bursts of creativity every day and churning out amazing posts (oh thank you, I’ll take that compliment, ME) and being witty and amazing and DAMN. I think I blew a gasket. I need to ratchet back and be realistic about what I can be capable of. THAT SAID, I am totally attempting NaBloPoMo sooooo we’ll see how that goes!
THINKING ABOUT: Giving Standup Comedy a try!!! I was convinced that I need to try it by some friends, and I’m working on some jokes and finding a good open mic night to try it out! Wish me luck!!
EATING: Raw spinach…and quesadillas. Far too much coffee to be okay. I neeeeeed to scale back my caffeine intake, for real.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Getting the office set up, wearing my blue fur coat around town, and the first snow! But ONLY the first snow, any snows after that can just…
MAKING ME HAPPY: Halloween hangover – the post-Halloween fun times! Weekend brunches and cooking at home, scented candles and Twitter chats, blog comments! Going out on weeknights! SCARVES!!!
