Currently... (22)

I've been contemplating what to do with my little piece of cyberspace here as it has shifted away from its original intention to be literary focused, and we've gone from 2 bloggers down to 1 (me)! Things will continue to be on and off as I figure things out, but for those of you still here, you can expect to see more geek fashion (which I hope you like), some book reviews, and maybe more of those bookstagram Annotations posts I promised a while ago. I appreciate anyone who still even reads this!

Since it's been a while since last I was here, here's a quick CURRENTLY - for old time's sake!

I found the Currently post at Kate Hart's blog, who got the idea from Amy Lukavics, who found it here. Please join in and link me in the comments if you do!

LOVING: Reading spooky stories on the internet, even though it terrifies me. I know it just passed but Halloween - I think I love it more as I get older? What a hit our last minute Stranger Things costumes were!

Lorde's latest album. Thor Ragnarok!! The Thor franchise will always have a special place in my heart (and not just because of Loki), and I am 100% here for Taika Waititi's humor.

READING: Gray Wolf Island by my lovely friend Tracey Neithercott! It's just the kind of magic I love to read. Empress of  Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza for Books & Boba Book Club.

WATCHING: On Netflix - Mindhunter, Stranger Things 2, American Vandal. This is a good mix of psychological darkness, scary-fun 80s nostalgia adventure, and on-point crime documentary mockumentary humor, respectively. (Technically, I have just finished Mindhunter and Stranger Things 2.)

THINKING ABOUT: What I'm going to do with this blog and with Girl on the Roam. I blog mostly for fun, but I also don't like to think I'm neglecting either of them. The fact that I'm going to see Hamilton next week for the 5th time, this time in my home city of Los Angeles. Wow.

ANTICIPATING: Looking forward to seeing my friend Melissa (@melfallorama) do a stand-up comedy set tomorrow night. She's one of the wittiest, funniest people (and writers) I know, and I'm so thrilled she's back on the same coast as me and living in the same region! If you're in Los Angeles on November 9th, tickets are available here: Funny Girls

In geeky anticipations: Star Wars Battlefront 2, Punisher, kinda even tentatively optimistic about the Justice League movie? Oh and seeing Hamilton again, of course!

WISHING: Time would slow down a little. Can you believe we're already approaching the end of 2017? I'm not even sure what to think, I'm so busy catching my breath! I'm also hoping for the weather to to stay cool, or at least stay consistently one thing or another. I'm not traveling this fall for the first time in 3 years, which is making me nostalgic for trips past.

MAKING ME HAPPY: Meeting online friends in Real Life. I had the pleasure of meeting up with Danielle Ward, the brilliant founder and designer of Little Petal at LA Comic Con. She makes convertible geeky dresses, and they are just amazing.

My current hair color. Chats with Sarah Enni. Snuggling with Loki, even if he would rather not. Getting SDCC badges!! See you in 2018, San Diego!

My poetry getting published! This is never not wonderful and exciting. "Estate Sale," which I wrote last fall while getting frustrated with house-hunting was published this Monday in the online magazine Polu Texni. I'd love if you let me know what you think of it! Here's a little background: The Memory of Objects.

My house. Furniture browsing. Sweater weather, finally. Informal ConSquad get-togethers. Loki- I told myself I wasn't going to be Loki-trash again, but well, here we are. Founding Daddies brunches. Porgs.
