This post is just going to be a brain dump of things I’m into, thinking about, or need to yell about. So enjoy!
Earlier this week, Instagram quietly got rid of it’s Activity Following tab aka where you could see who like whose picture or followed so-and-so aka the best place to internet stalk people. And now it’s gone. I’ve skimmed a few articles about it, and they said that people didn’t even know the tab was there?! Seriously? I’m upset Instagram got rid of it but I guess it’ll cut down on my overall time on the app since I’d get lost in the rabbit hole of seeing who liked someone’s picture and then creeping on their profile, etc.
I decorated my office for Halloween!
Friends who run outside in the cold: any advice?
Friends who run outside in the cold at night: any advice/suggestions about wearing lights or reflective things?
The sun is starting to set earlier and earlier, and soon enough it’ll feel like the sun never actually came up. I’ll need to run outside in the cold, and that might mean running outside in the dark 😦 Both sound miserable.
I’ve been listening to “Circles” by Post Malone on repeat.
I bought a planner! Well, I bought a new planner. I needed one for next year, so on my day off on Friday, I went to Marshall’s. I stood in the aisle for probably ten minutes looking at the different ones. It runs August 2019 to December 2020, so I already started using it and copied over some stuff from the planner I was previously using.
It has months and weeks, so I can see the overview of my month and also see each day of the week. I want to get better about keeping track of my to-do lists, and I’m planning to use the day sections to do that.
I’ve already decorated it with some stickers and will be adding on to it as time goes on.
I’m obsessed with the Baker Mayfield “At Home with Baker” Progressive commercials. Very very funny.
I currently have seven books out from two different libraries. Three are from the library on campus, and books taken out by staff are due on the last day of the semester—December 13—so I can hold onto them until then. My mom is reading one of the books I took out and already read, and I have two that are sitting on my desk at home currently unread. I have four out from the town library. One I finished and it has to go back before the end of the month. And the other three I got on Friday.
So I definitely don’t have a book problem, right?
My work-aversary is Tuesday! I’ll be at the university for one year, and it really feels like I never left. I’m still really happy there and sort of feel like I know what I’m doing (haha).
I won’t be participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I just don’t have the time. I’ve been plugging along at the current story I have, but I don’t think I could write even close to 50,000—or even 25,000—words. If I have spare time, I think I’d rather put more miles on my sneakers.
Anything on your mind?
