Weekend Reading 10/29

Happy Sunday, guys. I'm happily enjoying a rainy day at home today after a very, very busy week. It's funny, I expected things to slow down when we moved here, or at least to feel as though I had more time, but things have only sped way, way up. I have my suspicions that it's due to the days getting shorter, it's been hard to stay motivated past 7pm lately - and also possibly trying to get back to some semblance of routine. I finally joined a local gym, which is a reasonable 30 minute drive away (ha) and also doubles as the local haunted house (double ha). Despite the fact that this is where I grew up, the transition from city mouse to country mouse has been a comedy of errors. I have no idea how long it takes to get places (a general rule: 40 minutes in any direction), I've had several encounters with bugs I'd rather not relive, I've gotten myself lost in the woods, and Halloween movies are 1000x more terrifying when watched in a 200 year old farmhouse in the woods (we watched Stephen King's '1922' last night - good but scary). Anyway - this week I have a lot of work to do, per usual (life seems to revolve around work these days), but I'm hoping to check out a yoga studio in town too. Even though we're not planning on moving to Portland until spring, I've been casually apartment hunting and dreaming of having my own space again - this book from Moorea Seal has been serving up a ton of inspiration.

Anyway, enjoy your Sunday

Are you still job hunting? I have been for 2 months and I feel like I'm going to jump off of a bridge. I don't have the skills to freelance or advertise clothing brands on a blog, so I feel like you're killing it and I'm not.

Anon - I actually just signed for a full-time job, but know that I FEEL YOU. Job seeking is no joke and I still have so much anxiety over it, even with freelance and a blog. Especially after being laid off, it fucks with your mental state so much, like the rug could be pulled out from under you at any point. Anyway, I'm thinking of you, I've been there (I still feel like I very much AM there), and I truly hope you find something soon! xo
