Taking Stock: April 2016




Surviving: Finals. Somehow.
Writing: Much more regularly. I’m not turning out any masterpieces here, but just producing a bit of something more or less every day has been wonderful.
Reading: Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire, Under the Jolly Roger by L.A. Meyer.
Watching: Law & Order: SVU. Police procedurals are my kryptonite, and Law & Order is especially addictive. Movie-wise, I saw The Judge (good) and This Is Where I Leave You (very good).
Feeling: Sad that the semester’s ending and I’ll have three months with no assigned reading or papers. I never thought I would be, but I am.
Noticing: Pots full of flowers on doorsteps in the town where I go to college.
Appreciating: Warmer weather. It’s finally started to feel like spring.
Drinking: Way too much soda and not enough tea.
Eating: Homemade Napoleon Cake. It was delicious!
Admiring: The “Batman Through the Years” mug at my college bookshop which I won’t buy because it’s a waste of money...but it’s Batman. On a mug.
Listening: To “Someday” by Steve Earle, “Home” by American Authors, and “If I Had a Heart” by Fever Ray.
Launching: The Comics Cafe, a new blog for reviewing and/or gushing over comics! It’s still very much under construction, but you can take a look here.

  1. Writing/Drinking/Watching -- I feel ya!!! For me it's editing, not enough tea in general, and NCIS: LA. :p

    1. There can never be enough tea. I've actually never watched NCIS, so I must remedy that immediately. And editing can be so much fun! A pain in the neck, but lots of fun.

  2. The end of the school year can be a little melancholy, huh? I hope you did/do well on your finals, and your new comics blog looks awesome! (If you haven't, you should talk to Aimee Meester about comics. She loves them, too. :) )

    1. I never expect it to be, but it always is. My finals went pretty well, though, and I'm looking forward to having a bit more time to write.
