Way too much to read, listen, see, do, eat, drink, watch, write, and make. I want to do it all and every day I just find out about more stuff!
I will be honest that TV has taken a bit of a backseat lately. We don’t have any shows going right now. Although we did start Boardwalk Empire. Egads, that thing is about MEN being MEN and being POWERFUL. Which I’m not so sure I need to see another show like that, but it’s very well done so….
I’ve been reading at night instead of watching stuff and am trying to read during my lunch at work as well. It’s going okay! Here’s a master list of the things I’m trying to consume this week…maybe just this afternoon!?
I’m currently reading two incredible page turners. I was making fabulous prgress on the second book in the Elena Ferrante trilogy when I listened to this episode of Books on the Nightstand. I am now obsessively reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I’m not sure how great a book it is (quality wise), but it’s definitely entertaining…the Gone Girl of 2015 for sure.
My podcast feed is out of control. Trying to listen through it all, but getting bogged down. Especially with the slew of new albums being released right now too!
Oh, and let us not forget, the internet. There is my Feedly list of blogs, which is downright gigantic. The flood of daily news (thank god for NYT Now), op-eds, long reads, twitterings, and vlogs. Yep, I said vlogs. Perhaps my secret obsession with YouTube channels should be saved for another post entirely…
And on top of it all, today is Thursday and Thursday is when the GOOP newsletter arrives in my inbox, ready and waiting for ridicule!
It’s all too much…but in a good way I’m pretty sure.
