April is almost done and I know I saw this practically every time I write one of these, but can you believe that it’s already almost May? It feels like January was such a crawl to the end of the month and then once February hit, the month’s been flying by ever since. It’s a reminder to try to enjoy the little things about each day and each moment because time truly is fleeting.
As you know, we’ve been cutting back on how often we make these posts, so this is our first in quite a few months. We’re still playing around with the format, but so far this feels a bit more manageable to me than posting these each month. It also frees up a little more space for us to write different kinds of content if we choose to during the month.
Other than that, things have been pretty busy on our end. There are some things going on behind the scenes that we’re working on, including creating a YouTube channel, possibly. I know, I know. If you’re subscribed to our newsletter, you know that I wasn’t for it at first but Han eventually convinced me and we’re considering making one to share some of our posts in video format. We could change our minds in a couple of months, but right now we’re brainstorming what it would look like and if that’s something we could actually effectively manage – especially considering we’ve already scaled back how often we’ve posted here.
Enough of my monthly rambles, however. Here’s some things we’ve liked and what we’ve been up to.
I finished reading “The Other Black Girl” and it was pretty good! I’m reading “The Handmaid’s Tale” now because believe it or not, it’s one of those canonical texts I’ve never read before. My husband hasn’t been reading many books lately, but has been continuing to read a lot of articles.
Other than our NPR morning listens, I’ve found myself listening to Spotify a lot more. I’m an Apple Music user since I pay for it, but for some reason, I’ve been gravitating to Spotify for their playlists. Maybe they’re curated a little better?
I’ve been watching “Love is Blind” Season 4 and my husband and I have been watching the latest seasons of “Impractical Jokers” together. It’s truly our comfort show.
I’ve been experiencing major regret for second-guessing signing up for the presale code for Taylor’s Eras Tour because I thought given some of the things we’re working on behind the scenes, I wouldn’t be able to go. I thought, “I’ll think about it more because I really want to go, but not sure if I’ll be able to make it. If I can, I’ll purchase after the presale when the general tickets go up.” Well, I could go, but now there’s truly no chance for tickets thanks to Ticketmaster screwing things up. So, naturally, I’ve been watching the various live streams on TikTok and living vicariously through all of you who were able to go and get tickets. I love Taylor, but that’s what I get for hesitating. There are teardrops on my guitar, for sure.
I’m so happy that she’s back to posting! I’ve definitely been frantically checking her blog to see if she’s returned. I also relate a LOT to what she shared here about her relationship with social media. As she quoted in this post, “Creative people need time to just sit around and do nothing.”
This was such an interesting read! We don’t own a Wagoneer, but it’s been cool seeing some of the things that Victoria and Marcus love about it, while also interviewing other folks who own older models of cars.
LOVE a good Q&A.
Florence hasn’t been on our bucket list of places we’d love to travel to one day, but after viewing this post, I may have to add it. These photographs are stunning!
We’ve been somewhat obsessed with these videos showing what people make and how they spend their money. It’s very interesting to watch.
