This Sunday marks the start of Daylight Savings here in the UK, which means pretty much nothing to me except that I feel kinda pissed off about that hour I've lost. It also meant that my boyfriend had to get up for work at 3.30am (which is normal) but it was actually 2.30am and I feel bad for the kid. I, on the other hand, am not looking forward to getting up at basically 5am every day now for work, but I'm sure I'll get used to it (as always) but SIGH for this week.
However, it is Easter at the end of the week, I will be able to eat chocolate again, I only have to work 4 days this week and next, so all will be well. All. Will. Be. Well.
Let's do this post, shall we? I'm going to do that thing that's a questionnaire thing, cause I am lazy and that kind of structure works well for me. BOOM, post done (nearly...)
Lately I have been...
Writing: Blog posts with more frequency, thank you for noticing! My writing has definitely tapered off since January's month of writing prompts, which was not my intention, but I'm trying to keep up with blog posts (see: this one right here!) and a few other bits of writing besides. There's this website which is routinely pretty terrible but which has a feature I love called Money Diaries, so I had a god at keeping track of everything I spent this week (described in an interesting way, is the idea) and basically I just buy a lot of diet coke, if you were wondering.
Reading: Sooooo much it's stupid. I think I finished my 10th book of March yesterday which is just ridiculous (although a lot of them have been quite short). I have literally just this morning started reading Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore because, you know, Easter, and one chapter in I like it already which is promising!
Listening: I basically just listen to 3 podcasts: The Babysitters Club Club (two guys read all the Babysitters Club books and talk about them... plus many other things. I love it), My Dad Wrote a Porno (it's... pretty much what it says on the tin. However, his dad wrote a REALLY BAD porno, and so this is basically the funniest thing in the world. Also you have probably heard of this cause it's like the most famous podcast) and Thirst Aid Kit (two women talk about men they lust after. This sounds a bit meh, but actually it's really interesting and looks at the reasoning behind desire and lots of other good things like that. Plus there is fanfic so yeah). I also basically only listen to them in the shower or while I'm doing some boring chore, but yeah. I am also starting to listen to Hamilton a lot more now because I AM GOING TO SEE THE DAMN SHOW IN 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS WUT WUT?!
Yeah, I'm excited.
Watching: Ok, basically I'm obsessed with Call Me By Your Name and I've watched it 4 times in 2 weeks. THIS IS NOT NORMAL, but I am in love so what can you do?! I don't think I've had this reaction to a film ever in my life (except maybe, weirdly, Mean Girls. Weirdly because they're so different, Mean Girls is still a fucking brilliant movie) and I just can't even cope with my feelings about it. UGH. (I just searched for gifs of the movie and now I CAN'T SPEAK)
Also I discovered the other day that the rest of season 3 of Crazy Ex Girlfriend is on Netflix now, so I am ON. IT.
Looking: For a hobby, I think. I get really bored when my fella works nights, which makes me feel a bit pathetic, so I think I need a project or a hobby or an evening class or something so I have something to do with myself. It's possible I might start learning Japanese again WHO KNOWS, but I think I need to do something. I am more telling myself this than telling you, btw.
Learning: Hmmm. What have I been learning recently? I guess most of my learning at the moment has been at my job- I kind of keep forgetting that I'm still really new, so it's a bit like 'OMG why don't I know this thing?!' BECAUSE YOU'RE REALLY NEW, DUMBASS. Working on that, ya know? It takes time.
Feeling: I'm feeling pretty good! Annoyed about my lost hour, and kind of tired but I'm feeling pretty good. Also I miss chocolate but THAT WILL BE REMEDIED next week. Next week, my pretties. (Oh hey, sponsor me here please!)
Me, next week.
Anticipating: APRILLLLLL! If I may just talk about April FOR A SECOND: I am only working for about half the month (which is obviously amazing), it's my birthday month (yay!), I am GOING TO SEE HAMILTON, and then I am going to Naples, which is my first time abroad for like NINE YEARS. Yeah, I'm excited... How much of a comedown is May going to be?! But who carrrrres, April is still to come!
Wishing: For some real spring weather! It has been cold as hell all spring whenever you think it starts, and I am so ready to just go outside without a coat on, ya know? Also I want to see some blossom so yeah. Come ON, spring!
Loving: Reading (duh) and movies and just generally absorbing so much fiction it's awesome. I have also been loving the anticipation of exciting things to come, even though I wish they were here right now, the anticipation is really top notch.
And that is me, for now. How about you?
