In some ways, the idea of me making a “now” page is a little ludicrous: I excel at straying off paths, and when it happens on a micro level, I brush it off. When it happens on a macro level, I get very distressed. The micro-strays are products of having a wandering mind; the macro-strays occur when life is Not Going as Planned.
So I’m only going to address micro things here for the time being; they’re what I can focus on (and remind myself to focus on) without causing distress. I’d like people to know what I’m currently up to and interested in, but I have no idea myself where I’m headed in the grand scheme of things, so I’ll just table that.
- Reading, always.
- Trying to be more faithful about reviewing current releases, mainly to keep a hand in about thinking critically about– anything.
- Teaching myself guitar.
- Learning how to cook.
- Various crafty projects.
- Trying to blog more faithfully.
- More journaling, which is all the gunk that doesn’t end up on this particular windshield.
*Please note that what is on LibraryThing is incomplete; I’m trying to get my full library on there (and weed a lot of junk that needs to go). The GR account is largely a straw man and is never updated with any accuracy or faithfulness; I do, however, transfer current reviews written for LT to GR. TEAM LIBRARYTHING!
The other /now that is ongoing, and which I try not to mention much, is recovery. It takes a lot of frigging time in micro and macro ways. Things that are going on that I’m willing to put on a blog:
- Eating. Regularly.
- Logging faithfully.
- Identifying negative crap (internal and external) and distancing myself.
- Starting physical therapy, which is causing me to move like a praying mantis.
- Again, cooking.
When I had the 2001-2010 blog, I used to do a Reading/Listening/Current Obsession/Alice at the end of entries. I updated that every day for a long time, though (ahem). I think I may have lifted that from LiveJournal? Honestly, I don’t remember. At any rate, I’m going to add an additional tab for similar information and see how that goes.
