I’m just saying

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

Oh, wow, Monday again, huh? Stuff I’m thinking about this morning: *Since I usually do the grocery shopping on Thursday or Friday, that means there’s only one grocery trip left on this month’s budget, which is a Super Win. *And should balance out the fact that I really want to do a second supplement order […]

waiting on sunshine

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

(Theoretically, it will be partly sunny at some point today, which would make walking outside oh-so-much more enjoyable. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but plan to go regardless. Come on, sunshine!)

sounds about right

Tumblr is such a wild way to learn about movies, but it’s often much more fun than seeing the actual movie itself. Take Venom, for example! I have zero plans to ever see the movie, but I am loving the tumblr experience of Venom. Here is my understanding of things based solely on internet reactions: […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, October 19th, 2018

No particular fic to rec today, just fic in general. It’s so great! I recommend it! (Yeah, it’s been a long week. Not bad, just long.) This is one of those days when it would be super helpful to just have the day off from work, so I could do a bunch of errands, and […]

You know what’s great about October? CANDY. There’s candy everywhere, and it’s suddenly more acceptable than ever to just snack on it all the time. I took a peanut butter cup to my super special meeting training last week, and it was excellent. Things I’ve said to explain all the candy: *”There’s just so much […]

whorl Wednesday

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

One of the unexpected side benefits(?) of cutting my own hair is that I’ve grown much more familiar with my whorls/cowlicks. And there is for sure more than one. As far as I can tell, that’s why I get the wacky ‘breaking wave’ effect, which is just the baby cousin of the even wackier ‘peaks […]

thanks, neighbors!

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

To my neighbors (especially the downstairs ones): Thanks for turning your heat on too! (Despite hoping to hold out until closer to the end of October, the sudden onset of cold weather led me to turn on the heat in my apartment Monday morning. I can tell other units have their heat on as well, […]

winter plants update

Monday, October 15th, 2018

It’s been a few more weeks (yes, I was too lazy to go check how many), and there is news to share about the plant cuttings! Round 1 (in soil): *kiwi fern coleus — champions, looking very perky, happily growing some new leaves. I have a terrible time keeping those tiny flies away, so it’s […]

might be time to turn the heat on

Sunday, October 14th, 2018

It was 80F degrees last Wednesday, so I was really hoping to get in another week (or more!) without needing to turn the heat on. But we had a frost advisory last night, and I can hear someone scraping their windshield in the parking lot this morning, so it’s definitely cold now! I’M NOT READY […]

I sure did learn something

Saturday, October 13th, 2018

I have now been OFFICIALLY TRAINED in how to lead meetings. Except don’t call it leading, because the “lead” doesn’t do that part. That’s the facilitator’s job! The common thread of the training was using words that already exist to mean something else. Like, apparently we address “tensions” now? But don’t think that means something […]
