Currents, January 2016


Resolutions: Find alternate forms of secondary income (such fun!), learn how to drive stick, and improve my grammar & spelling.

Project: I made my sister an embroidery piece for Christmas which I plan to post about ASAP! Also, I made a curtain-skirt that hangs under my kitchen sink! Owning a sewing machine makes (my) life so much easier.

TV Shows: Oh boy, I watched all the American Pickers available on Netflix and while it looks like a fun job I would NEVER pick the junk they get money for, and would probably only find stuff from the 70s/80s that no one else would want. But it made me feel like much less of a hoarder, so that's good! I watched all of Making a Murderer, and like, I was underwhelmed? It was not nearly as compelled as I was by Serial and The Jinx. Maybe it was too many episodes? Finally, I know I told everyone how excited I was about The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but the late show really charming my pants off is The Late Late Show with James Corden! I'm not sure if it's that I'm having a hard time with Stephen being out of his Colbert Report persona, or he is.

Movie: The one everyone is talking about!

Food: I've been making Chex party mix non-stop since Christmas.

Celebrity Crush:
(The dudes are cute, but I'm mostly into their sweaters.)

Book: Got some great books for Christmas, including ones from my mom that instruct you on how to make your home more cat-friendly! Trying to do that on a tight budget should be interesting...

Indulgence: If you follow my Instagram you know the answer is posting photos of baby Arne.

Fashion: Trying to figure out how to rock a 40s style/Rosie the Riveter-esque bandana/headscarf.

Music: Lately I've been listening to Sandra McCracken's Psalms before going to bed or reading poetry.

Wishlist: This bonkers-level of expensive automatic litter box.

Reminder: "No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side. Or you don’t." - Stephen King, The Stand
