Howdy, howdy! As I’m writing this on Tuesday, it’s a warm (mid-80s), dreary day in October. Not unusual for north Texas around this time of year. But it has me feeling blah and lazy. It’s no secret that I’ve been struggling to come up with topics for my blog each week, so I thought I would take the chance to let you know what I would rather be doing. Some of which I will probably indulge in after I finish this post. Please forgive me if it’s a little shorter than usual, but I’m really lacking motivation. Without further ado, here are three things I’d rather be doing at this exact moment.
1. Binge watching anime that I’ve fallen behind on. I was watching a new episode of Fruits Basket as it came out each week and now I’m suddenly nine episodes behind. I don’t even remember what initially interrupted my watching streak. It wasn’t that I got bored with the show, I know that much. Plus I have at least ten shows in my queue that I either want to watch or rewatch. No idea why I haven’t made time for anime, but on days like this, watching it is all I really feel like doing.
2. Crocheting. Yeah. That hobby I talked about trying months ago is still a thing I’m working on. I don’t have any finished products yet, but I’m really enjoying doing something with my hands. And seeing the progress I’m making is really cool. It’s a creative outlet that’s so different from writing. I’ve always been a super harsh judge of my writing. Mistakes and shitty storylines that I have to keep reworking are annoying as all get out. But with crochet, I see errors and loose stitches and I’m still at a point where I can overlook them and see my improvement. It’s still fun. And if I ever finish anything, I’ll be sure to share it (warts and all) here.
3. Reading. I’m currently trying to finish up a book to review. I have one more chapter left. But I also have a bunch of books I want to start when I’m done, including one to review next month. So many choices, so little time. If I’m honest, I should read the next review book and get ahead a little, but I’ll probably pick something fun that I’ve been wanting to read for a while. Maybe a cozy. Maybe not. If you follow me on GoodReads, you’ll find out when I decide.
That’s enough blogging today. I think I’m going to go finish reading that book real quick, then get in some crocheting before other things distract me. What about you? What would you rather be doing on gloomy work days? Would you like to snuggle up with a good book and a glass of something yummy? Or maybe you’d rather go for a jog? Whatever you decide, tell me about it. Feel free to share your lists or thoughts here or on my social media pages!
