Kate, Lately

I have no food-related updates for you , so I thought I would try something different. Hopefully I will be able to share a recipe soon.

Relishing any moment I have to read for pleasure. These moments have been few and far between since I started my new job, which is a big change for me.

Remembering that this isn’t forever.

Reading George W. Bush’s memoirs (a little odd timing) and on page 2 of this novel.

Delighted that I have made two genuinely fantastic friends since my move up north — I live with one and one is a colleague.

Recommending the second season of the CBC podcast Someone Knows Something. Start from episode one. It is without a doubt one of the best podcasts I have ever heard, possibly the best.

Eating a lot of meals that require a minimum number of ingredients.

Grateful to have a new job that challenges me.

Loving that I am teaching feminism for the first time next week.

Checking Donald Trump’s Twitter feed almost obsessively. It’s a problem.

Choosing life. (Ha). Positivity & gratefulness.

Listening to (back episodes of) CriminalThis American LifeMatrimoney. I’m one ep in to the Babysitters Club Club and it is hilarious and so nostalgic.

Laughing with my sister, whenever we can. I miss her. We can always make each other laugh.

Looking forward to Saturday, the first day I will be taking off since I started my new job.

Planning lecture after seminar after tutorial after lecture.

Running 2 mornings a week before work. This is a new routine and I am proud of myself for sticking to it so far.

Working like I have never worked before.

Finding that H. & I are rock solid — as if there was ever any doubt!

Dreaming of summer in Nova Scotia.

Still thinking about donating blood — something I wanted to do for the first time at Christmas and haven’t done yet.

Ending my student life. My PhD corrections are officially approved. My full-time job is now teaching undergrads. My first paycheck arrives in 12 days (not that I’m counting or anything). Apparently I’m an adult!
