I am currently
reading Ted Gioai’s The History of Jazz. I just finished the second chapter on New Orleans jazz this afternoon.
writing this. I was working on something else earlier, but I got lazy so, meh.
listening to nothing at the moment, but here are a few recent finds slash recommendations: Wallice’s “Punching Bag”; Routine, Annie Truscott, and Jay Som’s “And Other Things”; and Bantug’s “High Worry.”
Also, I recently realized that I have not listened to Fiona Apples’ Fetch the Bolt Cutters yet. Everybody was hyping it up last year so I was like, meh, I’ll listen to it later. I listened to the song “Cosmonauts” for the first time last week when it came up in one of my Spotify mixes, and I thought it was so, so good! I still haven’t played the entire album though, hehe.
watching The Office. I already finished the entire series about a year ago and I am re-watching it because, I don’t know — I guess I got tired of my two go-to shows so I decided to make The Office my third.
thinking about whether I should work from the office or from home tomorrow. Hmm…
smelling sweet, sweet cupcakes. I made red velvet cupcakes today, and they turned out to be dark purple-ish or some really odd shade of red. They taste good though. I used to bake a lot more, but I kinda lay low ever since I moved out. Most baking recipes are not designed for small batches, and recluses like me have no choice but to eat all the shit that we make. I already had five cupcakes today. By the third cup I was, like, ugh, god, why did I even?
wishing for the pandemic to be over.
hoping that I finish all my immediate work tasks so I can book the entire December off.
wearing a shirt and a pair of leggings.
loving planning my meals in advance. I want to save money and not waste food, so I recently started planning my meals ahead. I don’t cook them all in one day though. I just write down the dishes that I want to make for the entire week, and I try to stick to the plan as much as I can.
wanting a Dyson Airwrap. I probably won’t buy it anytime soon, or maybe not ever, but I really, really want one. I am low-key hoping that I will eventually just lose interest in it so, yea.
needing money, of course.
feeling sleepy, hayyy.
And that’s all I have for today. Have a happy Monday, folks! May you all enjoy the rest of your week. 🙂
