Snapshot #138 | 10 Things for 20 October 2019

Personal

Currently…

1. putting… off the upgrade to Catalina; it’s going to break too many applications I rely on.
2. reaching… the point where I have to decide whether I’m going to try (again) to grow out my hair, or if I’m going to chop it all off.
3. falling… down a rabbit hole entirely composed of Japanese stationery supplies. I might have a new obsession.
4. planning… the final (for now) round of edits on The Black Sun.
5. emptying… another one of those boxes I’ve been hauling (unopened) from apartment to apartment since at least 2008. The decluttering process is slow, but it’s still moving along.
6. thinking… about making some changes to the newsletter. Is there anything you’d like to see? Writers or photographers who do it particularly well? If you don’t subscribe, is there something in particular that would change your mind? Let me know in the comments, or via the contact form if you’d rather get in touch that way.
7. starting… my Christmas shopping. In early October. There were specific budget-related reasons, but I’m still pretty sure that’s a new record for me.
8. feeling… relieved. I took care of a few chores that were really stressing me out—nothing serious, I’m just terrible at adulting—and I’m so glad to be done with them.
9. realizing… that I’m a little bit out of practice when it comes to grinding coffee by hand. I had a good routine down in the spring, but I’ve been drinking cold brew in the office all summer. It might take a week or two to get the muscle memory back.
10. finding… my way back into a good writing routine.

Snapshot #12 | 10 Things for 10 November 2014

Personal

A bit late, and no photo, this week… still wrestling with my schedule.

Currently…

1. playing… with my hair. It’s just long enough now that I can start doing something interesting with it. I just need to figure out what.
2. looking… for art… still. Always.
3. getting… rid of that awful hand-me-down armchair. Finally.
4. spending… too much time at the vet’s office. Nothing serious (don’t worry!), but Lucy wasn’t very happy about any of it.
5. listening… to the same (mildly embarrassing) song over and over again, like I did when I was 13.
6. wishing… I had more excuses to wear costumes. Stupid Hallowe’en.
7. trying… to get everything back under control. It’s been a weird couple of weeks.
8. solving… a problem that’s been irritating me for ages.
9. planning… some personal projects.
10. eating… too much candy. Stupid Hallowe’en.
