Today’s Blog Like Crazy prompt is to list things that I’m currently into. It’s a simple idea, but I found that my categories were pretty different from others’. Without further ado,
- Watching: After figuring out I was getting overstimulated from watching television while writing, I’ve started turning off the boob tube. I’m watching less television than I have in a long time, but still manage to keep up with a few programs. Adam and I have been watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Grimm since they started, and are still current on both. They’re fun, (mostly) well-written and light. We also keep up with Boardwalk Empire and are looking forward to the springtime return of Game of Thrones.
- Listening to: I have no music on my phone thanks to Spotify. About a year ago, my five-year-old iPod went belly up and I haven’t been able to spring for a new one yet. Since I mainly used it in the car, it hasn’t been worth the money to replace. Over the past few months, I’ve been jamming out to The Strokes, Foals, Young The Giant, Leagues — all bands that are played regularly at Octane. My coworkers’ tastes in music may differ from my own, but they’re pretty darn good.
- Planning: One of my goals for this month is to build my blog’s visibility and to build a client base for my writing. I have a tentative plan in place of how to achieve both, but it’ll take an investment of a good deal of time.
- Looking forward to: Thanksgiving. I’m taking some time off to rest and relax and spend time with Adam while he’s off work and out of class. It’ll be nice to be able to just hang out and not have to worry about so many things.
- Reading: Cocktail books. Lots of cocktail books.
- Making me happy: My new running shoes are still making me happy and helping to motivate my runs, leading to increased seratonin levels and chemically-induced good feelings. I dig it.
