The Summer Currently
writing: if you can believe it, cover letters—what else is new? Aside from that, I'm trying to make time every day to journal. I do it most mornings, as is the recommendation of The Artist's Way...which I've never actually read myself, but I know people who have and this is the biggest piece of advice it gives that I can glean from other people reading it.
reading: not The Artist's Way, obviously... but maybe I should. I am reading Eat, Pray, Love, for like a frickin' month now. I'm enjoying it; I'm just not prioritizing my reading time.
watching: alternating between The Mindy Project, going to town on a Seinfeld binge from episode 1 (you guys, the first two seasons were really not great. No wonder I don't remember any of those episodes from syndication.) and watching Community for the first time with David. It's officially one of like two shows we can actually agree on.
burning: a whole mix of random candles—a few from Target in summery, flowery scents and a few random finds from TJMaxx. Secretly waiting anxiously to break out Leaves and Sweater Weather.
eating: everything. That's pretty much one of the only things David and I both enjoy doing together. I mean, we have other common interests, but if you know me, you know I don't care much for in-person running partners (unless they're Tracy, who also gets how to run "with" someone without communicating verbally or much at all). Food, though, we can both get on board with. He's an adventurous eater and luckily lives right in Hell's Kitchen, so stepping out his front door is basically heaven for the hungry. (Although, not great for the indecisive.)
listening to: all the podcasts I've been loving on. Including The Armchair Librarians, hosted by Steph and Jana, which you should start listening to immediately if you haven't already. Also This American Life, Fresh Air, Savage Lovecast, and We Have Concerns. I have a hard time loving new podcasts, and often find myself not really loving ones I think I will or that come highly recommended. Such struggles, I know.
sweating: in yoga class more than on the road, and still not as much as I'd like. I've been agonizing over this in my Sunday Sweats posts, but the Cliff's Notes version is that my schedule and the weather don't allow for many runs that don't occur in the mornings...but I hate morning runs. I'll do them (occasionally and lazily) when I have to, but it's not the same as the evening runs I love. Which I can't do much anyway because I teach two evenings a week, am always in the city on one, usually have David plans on another, and practice the morning of another and I am not in shape for two-a-day workouts currently. Sigh.
focusing on: only the good things. Onward, ever. Backward, never.
Linking up with Kristen and Gretchen. What's new with you?
