Overcoming August Angst

September 2, 2011

I haven’t posted in like, a month. I’m so ashamed.

Since the beginning of August I’ve:

  • Acquired a new roommate (2 counting her cat)
  • Transported a brand new IKEA chest, jettisoned to the curbside a block away from my home, into my home
  • Hosted an impromptu New Wave dance party fueled by pancakes
  • Celebrated the birth of my dog
  • Joined a philosophy reading group; started a fiction reading group (however, I’ve only read the first 16 pages of said work of fiction)
  • Started* 6 books
  • Realized that in order for me to be satisfied with life I have to be doing something difficult
  • Decided to take a trip to New England for Thanksgiving (YES!)

And now here we are in September, and I feel like I haven’t accomplished enough. I suffer from the pervasive problem of lacking adequate time in a day. I also frequently lack energy, likely because of the way I feel about how I spend 8 hours of my day, 5 days a week. The heat may also be contributing to my listlessness. Triple digits? For real?

However, the following things help get me through the week:

Willa's faces


Particularly track 2

Kimchi fries (with wonderful coworkers) - Don't be incredulous. They (both) do exist.
