Things I'm Doing Instead of Writing

Playing so many rounds of Pepper Panic that the Royal Games admins should probably start checking on me.

Replacing imagination with procrastination in this song from Disney World.

Thinking about my coworker who will full-on vogue at the slightest provocation and how watching him is literally my favorite thing in the world.

Catching up on my correspondence, which I also put off for an unreasonable amount of time.

Debating what I should read for so long that I end up reading nothing.

Compulsively checking my e-mail even though I only ever get messages from retailers.

Scrolling through Facebook until there is nothing left for me to see.


Neglecting to compose even the simplest blog posts is becoming second nature to me. I hope that I can be better this year and get back on some kind of schedule, even if it's just once a month. That way, I'm still putting my work into the world even when no one else wants to publish my writing. Because honestly, if I don't keep going, I might die.

New Year, New Playlist: 2019

I had a tradition on my first blog, What We Covet, of starting each new year off with a playlist of music I intend to take with me throughout the year. As with the previous lists, the songs were culled from my current collection. Most aren't recent, but they certainly sound good to me, and that's really the goal of any playlist I ever make. They come to you in no particular order. I hope you'll check them out, if you're not already familiar with them. Enjoy!
There's only one song this year, y'all, and it feels appropriate to share it the day that our new Congress is sworn in: "Meltdown."
Just listen to the lyrics. They'll tell you how I feel.
