Time still seems to be dragging on and on and on.
Oh, there’s stuff happening, like the number of the infected constantly increasing, but that doesn’t really move things forward. Quite the opposite. There are folks being ridiculous and saying stuff like They’ll vaccinate my kid over my dead body. There’s a lot of nonsense of this kind and of that kind…and all of it contributes to the feeling of time dragging on and on and on.
So I still do pretty much the same stuff: staying away from everyone, reading, watching, working… What a life.
Currently reading: Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. I bought it a few years ago, kept reading something else, and now I’m wondering why I haven’t read it sooner. Oh, well, I’m reading it now, and enjoying it thoroughly (myths and stories and archetypes would be enough on its own to interest me, but this book is much more, making me recognize situations that my friends went through or are going through, as well as the mistakes I’m making). I’d say that this is one of those rare gems that are useful for everyone; you don’t have to like all of it or agree with all of it (I certainly don’t), you’ll still learn a lot.
Recently read: Demons by John Shirley. The edition with both novellas in it. They start out really well (the first one with an impossible situation, the second one with a bunch of nutcases who want to bring the impossible situation back), but then the ending turns out to be meh. They’re still an interesting read, though.
Also recently read: Weyward Children series (all of the books) by Seanan McGuire. Some books I liked more, some I liked less, but overall, I loved the series more than enough to keep reading it when the new books come out. Really good portal fantasy for young readers.
Currently watching: nothing. I keep planning to watch this or that, and then grab a book instead.
Currently working on: work, when there’s any. With the heat wave that kept dragging on, I can’t say I was enthusiastic about work.
And that would be pretty much it. I know, I know, it’s sooo exciting… Not.
See you next time!
