workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

And last day of February! Yeah, I’ve got nothing other than that, so I searched my images for the word February and got this adorable otter. (I have no idea what the February connection is. Maybe I posted it in February before? Really no clue how the search feature works.)

I’ve been trying out a mindfulness app for almost two weeks, with mixed results. Mostly I fall asleep a lot. I’ve had somewhat better luck with the fitbit breathing relaxation thing — probably because it’s only 2 minutes long and is visual-based, rather than something I’m supposed to listen to. The app thing is eight […]

notes from a Saturday adventure

Monday, February 26th, 2018

*I found the canoe launch! Not that I was ever really looking for it, but I was still excited. *To the person who said good morning as I was headed out — it sounded like the next thing you said was, “You’ll need your galoshes on the ice.” In retrospect, that makes no sense, so […]

2 month update

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

It’s February 25th, officially two months since Christmas — time for a door decoration update! *Two of the previously Christmas-decorated doors are now undecorated. (‘Tis the season no longer!) That brings the total of non-decorated doors to four. *My door has a Valentines Day theme going on with the door art. (For a holiday with […]

unexpected awesome

In any organizing project, there’s only so long you can put off dealing with the inevitable paper collection. (Not the paper crafting collection, although to be honest, that too.) But all that stuff that seemed too important to throw out right when I got it, but not important enough to ever go back and look […]

and another thing!

Black Panther was great, seriously. But it did kind of grind my gears that they didn’t even hint towards the Accords when they did the chase through South Korea. [‘Hey, we’re going to have our enhanced superhero (plus team) cross your borders and chase an enhanced villain (plus team) through a crowded city, causing an […]

I have Some Thoughts

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

::deep breath:: I have Some Thoughts about the upcoming MCU Infinity War movie. And also fun thoughts. Let’s go with those. 1. A huge shoutout to that tumblr blurb about Shuri and Peter Parker pulling the “what’s updog” joke on Thanos. I chortled through the entire trailer thanks to that, and enjoyed it immensely. 2. […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Since it is unseasonably warm at the moment, a post about going outside at work! 1. I work near an airport, which means every once in a while a very low-flying plane will go over while I’m out walking. This constantly gives me the urge to throw my hand up in the air, Free Willy […]

apartment check-in

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

1. I found the card! Last night, in (yes, of course) a box of other cards. And with still over a week left to go in February — truly a success story for the ages. 2. I also found a key. It is a key with a sticker on it with my apartment number, which […]

that makes no sense

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Here’s a thing I’ve never understood: telling people who are nervous about something, like public speaking, to imagine the audience naked, as if this will somehow ease their nerves. (There’s a song getting radio play right now that mentions it, and keeps bringing it back to my mind.) ((‘There’s Nothing Holding Me Back,’ Shawn Mendes)) […]
