I know it's been a little while since I've posted one of these, but nevertheless, here's what was going on in my world this week:
Jon Stewart's time on the venerable fake news show is coming to an end soon, and his final stretch of episodes began this past Monday. The Daily Show has been mandatory viewing for me for years now and the quality of every show has been consistently amazing. All of Jon Stewart's episodes over his 17 year run are live streaming on the Comedy Central website (through August 6), where you can also find extended interviews with recent guests. Bid Jon adieu with me and the rest of his fans in these final weeks.
Lately I've been feeling a bit both in and out of sync at the same time. I have been keeping with my regular sleep routine (which is very important to me) but I haven't been writing as much as I would like. Inspiration certainly has it's place and sometimes I just have to wait for it to come, but I feel strongly that consistency and hard work are important, especially with where I hope for this whole thing to go. I think my recent travels earlier this month and last month has played a role in upsetting my rhythm. I'll be staying local for the foreseeable future so hopefully I can meditate, reflect, and write.
- Thrift Shops
My partner and I (now that she is back in Maine) have been shopping around for some new things to decorate and furnish with. We got some great deals and found a solid bookshelf (we'd been needing one badly for a while now) to house all our books and my movies. I have donated often to various thrift shops and have found a lot of cool stuff at them over the years. I highly recommend supporting your local shops or places like Goodwill, Salvation Army, or Plato's Closet. You save money, help people, and support sustainable reusing of all sorts of stuff.
