What I'm Reading
I'm still beta-ing, but mostly right now I'm reading the textbook I'll be using this year in my American History class! It's consuming pretty much all of my time but I'm also getting really into it.
What I'm Writing
What Else I've Been Up To
This weekend was the first one in a long time that Mr. S and I were just at home, with no travel plans and no big family plans. As fun as travel and family are, it was nice to just have two days to ourselves. We drove around listening to podcasts for part of it: our long-time favorite Pop Culture Happy Hour, and the recently-popular-on-Tumblr Welcome to Nightvale.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Taking a day off! Yesterday, I woke up a giant ball of stress. Work stuff is already piling up, and my road test is a week from Friday. I had a driving lesson around noon, so I spent the whole morning messing around online and worrying. The lesson went ok-not-great (it had been a while, so I had gotten used to our car, not the car I do lessons in--which will also be the car I take my road test in--and it took some time to get it back) and when I came home, I decided: I was calling a "sick day." I made myself some soup and tea, and curled up on the couch to watch Little Women. Mission: Chill Out went nicely, and I'm feeling energized and excited about working again.
I apologize in advance as well as retroactive to last week for not posting, commenting, or responding to comments as much as I normally do--I may try to keep up with WuW check-ins, but until school is clicking along, I'm going to be online a lot less than usual. I'm hoping things get back to normal by the end of September!
What's up with you?
