What I'm Loving | 9/24/17

The importance of taking time to recharge is something I've learned a lot about in the past year. It's so hard to find the perfect balance, but this week came fairly close. I had a very big event planned, and though that was hectic I really wasn't feeling overwhelmed. I made sure to take plenty of time for myself to read and relax, and it really made a load of difference. I've also been breezing through books, which is new for me but very enjoyable. Before I never felt like I had time to read; now that I make time for it, it's amazing how quickly books go by!

Here's what I'm loving lately:

Books :: I finished The Goldfinch! It was a hefty book but I did enjoy it. There were enough elements of the story layered together to keep it interesting even with it's length. I've started The Invention of Wings, which is part of Oprah's book club, and I'm enjoying it. It's written from the perspective of two characters which can sometimes be confusing, but they each cover different events throughout the story so it's very well done. It's set in pre-Civil War era Charleston; I've always enjoyed historically accurate Southern literature so I've been very into this book.

Listening :: I've finally started saving more music on Spotify! I don't get great service on the subway, so I kept finding myself listening to the same saved songs over and over. So though I haven't been listening to anything new yet I hope to soon.

Spare Time ::  Work events! We had our large, annual event of the year, and all-consuming is the best way to describe the prep for it. It went down Thursday, and without a hitch, so I really could not be happier.

Style :: I think I mentioned that I got these white Converse for my birthday, and I do wear them all the time. Before the event on Thursday I was running around in my nice dress and my sneakers on before I switched to heels, and I got so many compliments! Apparently nice dresses and Converse are very in right now, which is news to me but I'm not fighting it.

Today is free play day at a Coin Op bar in the city, so I think we might check that out. It's always good to be reminded how terrible I am at Galaga.
