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.
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!
