That’s an absolute joke. Same old Beth, here 🙂
Just take what you can get!
Another week in the wonderful life that is 2020. But the weather. It truly has me feeling some type of way. I always say that once Daylight Savings hits in the Spring I become a new person. And I stand by that. Especially in June when daylight hours are peaking. I even have a couple tan lines. Which is fun for a little Polish girl like me. Granted, its shorts, sneakers and sports bra tan lines because I only go outside once a day to go on a run. And by go outside once a day, I pretty much mean that I only get out of bed once a day. Honestly, why do I even complain – this is an ideal lifestyle for me.
So, wanna know what I’ve been consuming while I lay around all day? Well here we go with our Monday check in…
Boy oh BOY, have I been on my podcast listening game lately? Yes. I have, indeed. I’ve been listening to a lot of Jay Shetty, as always. Pretty much just binging every episode he has.
And when I feel like listening to music, ODESZA’s been the move recently.
Would you hate me if I said I was watching New Girl again? I kinda hate myself, to be honest. I’ve seen it so many times. I’m just picking and choosing episodes now. I just identify with Nick Miller so much. Like he’s so lazy and yet has so many ambitions and it’s so oddly specific that it makes him very relatable. Anyway, I don’t care more about fictional characters than I do my real life. Really. I don’t. I swear.
I also watched a super cute CHEEEEESY movie called 2 Night Stand on Amazon Prime. And I am not in the business of film critique, but if I was, I’d rate it pretty well given the fact that it was incredibly cheesy. Sometimes you just need that though. And besides, my mom was the one who recommended it to me and she is the QUEEN of Hallmark movies, so if that tells you anything.
Okay I finally picked up some of the books I’ve had laying around. Every day this week I’ve been reading a book called Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion & Truth in the Immigration Debate by Matthew Soerens, Jenny Yang, and Leith Anderson. Which as we all know, is my life’s calling. So it’s been really good thus far and I have to shout out my friend Tess, for recommending it to me months ago.
I have been having a ton of fun writing the Unemployed Tales – just putting a lot of my feelings from the past few months into words. Its so cathartic that I already have quite a few posts queued up, so perhaps I will post before Thursday 😉
Obviously, also still working on the book so when I feel confident enough I’ll finally tell you guys what it’s about 🙂
And that’s it for the week – I’ll leave you guys with a short poem that I wrote a few days ago on my Instagram:
G U S T
It’s easier to say good bye to a gust of wind than what it takes with it when it goes.
