Well, this week has been all over the place. The breakup is still rough and messy and sad, but I’ve been keeping busy with some wonderful friends. Although I spent most of the week moping around my apartment, I barely set foot inside the building this weekend; drinks with friends, an evening at the beach, and a day spent kayaking the Buffalo River kept me on the go and my spirits up.
I also did some pretty good reading; I savored When Women Were Birds by Terry Tempest Williams, which was exactly what I needed. I’m also about ten pages from the end of Fortune Smiles by Adam Johnson (coming in August from Random House).
I broke down and signed up for a free trial of Scribd this week, and I finally started reading Lumberjanes! I’m only three issues in, but it’s just as wonderful as everyone says it is. Girl power! I’m also about half an hour into the audiobook of Modern Love by Aziz Ansari, which is really interesting so far.
I’m not quite sure what’s up next. This week’s going to be pretty busy; I’m trying to find someone to sublet my apartment, and I think I’ll be moving my stuff back to my parents’ place. (Fun.) Then on Saturday, I’m heading to the Finger Lakes for a week of swimming, boating, and hammock reading with my family. I’m also crossing my fingers (ridiculously hard) for some good news this week.
What are you reading this week?
