Also, I’m pleased to announce my participation in #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks 2017! It’s a set-your-own-goal reading challenge with monthly posts to check in on progress. I still own a staggering number of unread books — 746 out of a total 1,373 — and have made very little progress in the past few years because most of them are still packed in boxes in my mom’s house from two moves ago. But I’m going to start working them down. I hardly buy any books at all these days (most of them date from back when I was a librarian and had access to cheap or free book sales all the time), so I’m not setting any buying limits, just a low goal of four books a month. Hopefully more, but four minimum. I’ll report back on what I read, I’m sure it’ll be quite a variety!
There’s not much other news. I’m finally settling into the Spring semester after being away at a conference and having a death in the family in the second week. I’ve got a lot of writing to do, but again I hope to report back here as I get ever-closer to finishing my thesis project. (It’s related; I do queer literary history!) Also I met my goal of writing every day in January, woop woop. And I bought a memory foam pillow and it’s basically the best thing ever. I grind my teeth at night, and it’s even helped me stop doing that, judging from the lack of painful aching!
I’m thinking I’ll put TV updates in these coffee shares too… Working on some kind of regular format. But anyway I love the Muppets! It’s my first time watching The Muppet Show and I love it! Harder to find than you might think though, so let me know if it’s online somewhere. And I started Riverdale but I hate it.
How are y’all?
