Current Books: This weekend, I finished Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig and The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner. Gravel was absolutely heartbreaking. I started Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas last night, and I have the newest Louise Penny book, Glass Houses, to start this week.
Current Playlist: Mostly audio books, but I also just finished listening to an Amena Brown album.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Oreo cheesecake from Burger King… I get them after class some days.
Current Color: Deep purple
Current Food: Burger King on class days and whatever our cook makes for lunch on work days (I work at a daycare).
Current Drink: peach passionfruit refreshers
Current Favorite Favorite: Open mic nights in Tupelo
Current Wishlist: I might want an Apple Watch. I can’t decide. I’d really love a shuttle service from my door to my college next semester. Parking there stresses me out. LOL. More realistically, there are a bunch of books on my wishlist, as always.
Current Needs: I need to get my weekends to be more productive. This semester, I have gotten most of my homework done during the week, and my weekends should be spent doing housework, etc, but I mostly turn into a sloth at 6pm every Friday.
Current Triumph: I completed my verse novel, and I have been ticking items off the to-do list for transferring to Memphis come January.
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: Mostly life logistics, trying to make everything fit, etc… I mean, aside from racism, mass shootings, rape, and all of the other stuff that keeps me frothing at the mouth on a regular basis.
Current Indulgence: Single serve mug cakes
Current Outfit: Black Jordache skinny jeans, purple sweater, purple boots
Current #1 Blessing: My husband. He does so much with the kids and the house, and not feeling all that crappy gender role pressure that exists in so many marriages makes being in school a billion times less stressful.
