The weather lately has been so up & down that it’s been difficult to coordinate outfits.
I seem to have developed an overwhelming obsession with Fleetwood Mac that came out of nowhere. A friend advised me that my 30s is the perfect time to foster such an obsession, but I feel as though I can’t write anything about it! It’s overwhelming to even try and begin when there’s so much commentary.
I’ve also been listening to Aimee Mann’s I’m With Stupid a lot. I don’t know if all of this is connected somehow? WHAT IS THE COMMON THREAD?
I won’t be able to get to yoga this week and it is making me realize how scatter-brained I become when I don’t go to yoga. It also makes me realize that I used to be like this all the time before I started my practice and folks, that is scary.
I am thinking about reading War and Peace, except that I have been saying I am going to read War and Peace for about four years now and it never happens.
I like Girls. And I liked The 5 Year Engagement. I am concerned about this current trend in cultural criticism that seems to want movies and television to emulate an ideal instead of actually dealing with the issues of socio-political barriers? (I sound fancy!) Like, WHY DOESN’T THIS SHOW HAVE MORE RACIAL DIVERSITY?/THIS MOVIE IS SEXIST! instead of actually applying how this form of media might be reflecting factors about a certain age group, class, section of the city, and/or re-definition of masculinity that make us feel uncomfortable about our own issues with these topics.
I have also made a decision to try not to complain as much. It’s really difficult, you guys.
