sunday summary #5
what i'm reading / i love days when i get book-mail and today is one of those days. i'm about to crack open brene brown's new book, braving the wilderness. i've been resisting the urge to order books recently, but this week i kept stumbling across people on instagram and twitter who had posted the perfect quotes from this new release and i finally caved.
what i'm thinking / that i have changed a lot even in the last five months since graduation, that i have shifted my thinking and brought new ideas into my reality. that i have so much growing and learning and processing to do, but also that i am grateful for all the hard work that has gotten me to this point.
what i'm writing / during one of my late-night strolls through my document folders on my hard drive, i came across an essay i started writing this time last year for my longform essay class, an essay i didn't finish on time because of a mental breakdown and never turned in because this professor doesn't accept late work. at this point, the narrative is fragmented, mostly in the form of freewriting. but it's an essay that still speaks to me, even after all these months and i'm enjoying sitting back down with it, attempting to piece together some of the fragments and unfinished ideas.
what i'm listening to / silence. for a long time i haven't been able to write without music, but right now my mind feels strangely quiet and calm.
what i'm hoping / that this coming week will bring cooler weather and some positive energy in the realm of employment. that this sore throat i've been nursing for four days will finally go away.
what i'm fearful of / self-sabotage.
what i'm about to do / make a breakfast veggie bowl with zoodles and fried eggs and then get some writing/work done and then go to work at my new (ish) part-time job.
