The May Currently
writing • three books, one project. Hold me to this, guys. Keep me writing, even when I start to feel like it's pointless.
reading • Atonement by Ian McEwan, for the second time though I can't remember anything about the first.
burning • a fresh pink sangria, a repeat Target purchase that has no business smelling quite as delicious as it does.
watching • One Tree Hill. I never watched this growing up and have been reprimanded for it a LOT over the years. I flipped it on on a whim a few weeks ago and am fully committed to the lives of these decade-old strangers at this point.
listening to • a whole lot of back-logged episodes of This American Life. Any song that feels like something I can work into a yoga playlist. (In fact, the other night I was complimented on my playlist by a newcomer who was pleased to discover I play "real songs." I guess he was fearfully expecting more gongs and chanting and less Gnarls Barkley than he got. Confession: I love when people ask me about my yoga playlists.)
planning • the second to last wedding hoopla extravaganza, the bachelorette weekend. Yes, weekend. Lord help us.
sipping • green tea with mint.
snacking on • avocado toast with an over-easy egg broken over top. I could eat this for three meals a day. I won't even tell you how many times I've done close to that.
teaching • fun (well, I think they're fun...) themed classes to keep things interesting. Writing a class around a theme helps me make sense of the sequencing and string poses together in a way that each is really complementary to the one before and after. Last week, my class was complimented by nearly every single yogi who took it and of course I got nervous, worrying that I'd peaked already and wouldn't be able to write a class half as good ever again! A good practice with my mentor, though, cleared that worry right up.
seeing • The Fits as part of my town's annual film festival. It's a rather big to-do around here with tons of great events and panels and special events and such, though I only was able to make room for one film on my schedule this year. But one is better than none! (Even if the one ended up being very strange and kind of left us going ??????? all night.)
focusing on • what I can control and what I can do with what I have where I am.
going • on a vacation, soon? Maybe? I hope? That's more wishful thinking than updating because I have no plans to go anywhere but oh man alive, do I need a few days with nothing to do but lie under the warm sun and read a book while a cabana boy cools me down with a giant palm leaf. Anyone want to kickstart the funding for this one?
Linking up with Kristen and Gretchen. What's new with you?
