Good birthday @dannyyumyum, may the worst case scenarios you’re always ready for never come true.

GIVING IT ALL

We all get a limited amount of tomorrows. I don’t want to come to my last one only to realize that I could’ve given more, that my time and energy and gifts could’ve been better used, or that I spent way too much time on things that didn’t really matter.

Every so often, it’s worth it to do a check in with yourself. Ask if your current situation- your job, your community, your location, etc. creates an environment where you can fully give what you’ve been given. Sometimes you’re in unplanned situations that you have to endure for some time, but other times, you end up spending way longer in a place that holds you back just through passivity and comfort.

Keep checking in with yourself. You’ve got way too much to give!

READING FRENZY

Reading Frenzy [1].JPG


A perk of not having internet at home over the past month? I’ve been on quite a tear when it comes to reading.

Here are some turbo-reviews:

Reading Frenzy [2].JPG

Idaho, Emily Ruskovich

So much suspense but you never get the answer to your most burning question. ★★★

Reading Frenzy [3].JPG

Severance, Ling Ma

The concept is intriguing but the ending is a little unsatisfying.  ★★★

The Lucky Ones, Julianne Pachico

I loved the setting of Colombia in the early 2000s, but I wish the characters didn’t seem so disposable. ★★

Reading Frenzy [5].JPG

Sea Prayer, Khaled Hosseni

Heartbreaking and tender.  ★★★★

Reading Frenzy [4].JPG

The Sympathizer, Viet Thanh Nguyen

I really wanted to like this more than I actually did. Reminds me of The Orphan Masters Son in that regard. ★★

The Female Persuasion, Meg Wolitzer

I liked this read much more than I anticipated. The characters were easy to root for.  ★★★★

Reading Frenzy [6].JPG

How Neighborhoods Make Us Sick, Veronica Squires and Breanna Lathrop

Check my post from last week. ★★★★

Raise Your Voice, Kathy Khang

Good, and ironically I don’t have much more to say. ★★★

A MONTH AND SOME CHANGE

Here’s what life has looked like lately:

• Getting buried in books
• Wet dog courtesy of the ocean
• Wet dog courtesy of bathtime
• The OA’s second season being such a trip
• No at-home internet
• Bookmarking all kinds of furniture I want whenever I do get internet

This has been one of the most unanticipated, surprising, and kinda comedic seasons of my life, and I’m loving all that it brings.

BUN WHILE IT LASTED

It was bun while it lasted, but it has definitely been a season for change.
