December Reflections

I thought since I utterly failed on the Instagram challenge for the December reflections, I thought I might try to do a quick one or two lines here for each one, (and try not to make them all about Costa Rica), maybe a photo or two if it merits it. Ready? Let’s go! My smile:…

December recap and shutting it down

The month started out with me having things I wanted to accomplish. There was editing work to do. I had fallen behind on my reading challenge, so I wanted to read at least six books this month. Plus, poetry. I wanted to use the down time to work on organizing my work and setting up…

TV shows I’m enjoying

I mostly completed November’s NaBloPoMo, but I did miss a couple days, so I’ll catch up into December. Aren’t y’all lucky? I recently started watching a couple different TV shows that I am really enjoying. Since they might not be on people’s radar, I wanted to fill you in. We Are Lady Parts This show…

Coffee

As an extra gift for my birthday, aside from surprising me with her actual presence, my sister bought me a coffeemaker. You see, when we were in Costa Rica, we drank coffee every morning. That wasn’t that new for me. I tend to favor mochas, but I’ve had plenty of brewed coffee. I just didn’t…

Hair snake

Here’s a story from a couple weeks ago. My shower drain started backing up. My sister had had the same problem with her bathtub and had to call a roto-rooter guy to come snake the drain. Mom had said she had a device to do it, but she couldn’t find it. But she went online…

Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie review

Warning: this post contains major spoilers for Ghostbusters: Afterlife. I was unsure about seeing this one because I’d heard some things about it like it was more fan fiction than any kind of real story. But then a friend who I trust about this kind of thing said he was excited to see it, so…

College applications

I have no real recollection of my college applications. I’m pretty sure I had to write an essay, and I might even have it somewhere in a file folder. But what these applicants need to do now is remarkable. There are activity lists and short answer essays and student statements and academic statements. And so…

Working Friday

I had the day off from my regular job, but my editing job was very busy today. There are some school deadlines on Nov 30, so a lot of things are on my plate. I still have a few more to do over the weekend. But this morning, I did a 2.5 mile hike and…

Day of thanks

I slept in. I thought I might go for a hike this morning, but after I got up and around, I thought that maybe I should actually have a holiday without any to-dos or should dos. So I went to Starbucks, came home, read my book outside and enjoyed the morning. Then I went in…
