I've been a little lost for words lately. I've had bronchitis/pneumonia for a full month now and am on my fifth antibiotic (save your speech about antibiotics, I love them.) I haven't skated much. I haven't left the house much. I've had a LOT of time to think, and that can get messy. But here's what is CURRENTLY happening in the carnival that is my life.

I am reading The Wife by Meg Wolitzer. I read her book, The Position, many moons ago and loved it. I've moved this book from apartment to apartment and finally decided to read it. I love the was she describes things without being confusing or pretentious. I identify with the main character of this book, and for a book called The Wife, that says something.

Recent internet reads that are definitely worth your time:

1 | Here's My Excuse, Maria Kang - thoughts on body image, mental health, and being who you are
2 | Would Jesus Have Prayed 'Allah'? - linguistics, religion, and tolerance all packaged together
3 | From the Different Ways You Can Miss Someone - basically sums up how I feel about my ex-husband

When I grow up, I want to be as freaking rad as Lennon Stella. Also, I love the name Lennon. Also also, These girls have more talent in the tips of their tiny little fingers than I have in my whole body!

I'm thinking about making an enormous life change. This is part of why I've been so quiet. I really can't say much more publicly but it's weighing on me and scaring me and exciting me all at the same time. Stay tuned.

I'm taking my first Skillshare class! I'm going to be learning to hand-letter by taking this class. I'm excited, because nothing inspires me more than words and art, I've just had trouble in the past putting the two together. You can do it at your own pace, so join me if you want! Your first class is just $10.

If I watch anything, it's on Hulu Plus. Parenthood, Nashville, Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, The Mindy Project, and Modern Family are all back. But I normally save them all for Saturday and watch them while I clean.
