Hi all! Popping in to share my latest Spotify playlist with you, filled with tunes I’ve been listening to since late July. You can find the newest playlist here. And, something else fun and music related to share: I recently compiled all the music I shared in 2016, as well as everything that’s been shared so far this year into two big playlists. They’re great to put on while you’re working or driving or hanging out at home! You can find the “master” 2016 playlist here, and all the songs shared in 2017 (so far, at least!) here. I’ll keep adding to the latter as new playlists are published! Hope you enjoy.
(Edited to add: I nearly forgot, but Odesza’s latest album is out today! Listen to it here. Soooo good.)
Quick week and life updates in 500 words or less: was anyone else totally discombobulated this past week? Labor Day coming and going, September’s arrival, plus a rather awful heat wave in the Bay Area meant this week just felt…off. I’ve recently been feeling like I’m drowning a little bit — in work, general life responsibilities, mostly doing way too much and not really keeping my sanity in mind. I’ve been pondering how I’ll
recover from tweak this as we head into the autumn (and winter…and the year beyond). But at the same time, it feels like there’s no time to ponder. Hmm. More on this at some point, I’m sure. Being the architect of your own evolving life is both the greatest pleasure and the most immense challenge. Know what I mean?
In the meantime, I finally have put together a post about this amazing homemade facial mist/toner I concocted — I just need to finish writing the last bit of it, then I’ll share it with you next week. I’m wondering, now that I check in here less often (…bum bum bum…is this thing still on?), what do you enjoy seeing most? I’ve been wanting to write more essays, stories — long form type pieces — and wondered if you would enjoy such a thing. You’re probably going to get a little bit more of that over the coming months regardless, but…anything you want to discuss here? Tell me about it below. Current topics I’ve been tossing around in my head: a series about my own journey with adoption, thoughts on freelancing and how I work, and chatting about relationships of all types — marriages, friendships, etc. Thoughts?
(Whew. Got it in right at 270 words).
