Agenda for April 2020 & March wrap up.
March has been wild. There were days when I could bet it was summer upon us and then today in the morning (In April 2020) I was freezing and the first thing I did when I got out of bed was put on some socks and then curl back up in my bed. Very productive, the highlight of my week. But on a lighter note, the Pandemic has not been so hard on me or so I like to tell myself. Besides the fact that my boss doesn’t realize ‘work from home’ doesn’t mean ‘work twice as much’ it has been fairly peaceful the past 2 weeks.
The best thing that happened in March was is that I pulled through with the content despite a very demanding work schedule. Historically I have erred time and again and half-assed my posting schedule. I am surprised I managed it this time because there has been a good blog post or two up every week, and last year that would have been a wild outreach for me. But last year I wasn’t as happy working on my blog as I am this year.
Found some musical gems
This is not courtesy of sitting at home due to COVID-19, this is just my mood around springtime. Here’s how I feel about stuff in music:
- Last hope by Paramore
- I lost a friend by FINNEAS
- Love is Mystical by Cold War Kids
- Nico and the Niners by twenty one pilots
- Missed connection by The head and the heart
- Habits by Tove Lo
- Clean by Taylor Swift
- Expensive Mistakes by Fall out Boy
- Wings by Birdy
- Simmer by Hayley Williams
TBR looks like:
- The Mercies by Kilan Millwood Hargrave
- Holding up the universe by Jennifer Niven
- !0 minutes 38 seconds in this strange world by Elif Shafak
- Hotel of saints by Ursula Hegi
- It ends with us by Colleen Hoover
Year of Sorrow has played the favourite child for a while but I have been writing some more and in ways, nothing has changed. But in other ways, I am not sure if someone who doesn’t know my work would think a poem I wrote right now and something I wrote 7 years ago are from the same writer. Someone told me once that my poetry reminds them of Pink Floyd and not that it isn’t the greatest compliment ever but I want it to sound more like me.
I want to wrap up Year of Sorrow. Make sure as many people get to read it as possible and I am looking for ways to better achieve that. I will be posting new excerpts and I would love to get feedback on it.
I want to share more book reviews but with a spin on it and I also want to share some of my own short stories that I have been working on. I want to put in the kind of work in this blog that you would if it was a job but I also want it to feel like a hobby.
Bucket list for when this is all over?
While it is best to stay at home, the pandemic has made me realize that I am an idiot who stays at home way too often, does not take enough leaves from work and should’ve gotten that haircut I’ve been thinking about a month ago. Also how great was dry-cleaning? It is a really good time to think about everything you can and should have done in the event, the world really does end in April 2020. (Just kidding)
