Even though it's been over two months since my last update, I'm keeping this one short and sweet. So far summer twenty nineteen has been 45% traveling, 45% work, and 10% trying to stay afloat (no pun intended, in reference to the above photo). The library's summer reading program is winding down and I'm looking forward to settling into a more consistent routine next month. This might be the first time that I'm genuinely okay (maybe even excited) about summer coming to a close.
Does this mean I'm a real adult now?
reading: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain (finished it about a week ago and highly, HIGHLY recommend to both intro- and extroverts alike)
watching: any and all interviews featuring Jake Gyllenhaal because that man is off the WALLS and I love it
listening: Happiness Begins by the Jonas Brothers (are we in 2019 or 2008? I don't know and I don't care)
eating: Panera Bread -- the ultimate comfort food imho
drinking: black tea with honey and lemon
playing: I haven't had much time to game recently but I've been itching to replay Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door in celebration of its fifteen birthday last month! (speaking of which: #RemasterTheThousandYearDoor)

Just found your blog and I am going to be grabbing that book Quiet because for this introvert- the world is too noisy and busy.

You are so welcome! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It was balm for this introvert's soul. <3

I'm glad you got the chance to balance your work and your leisure time. Seldom people are able to do that. It's best to not neglect the things that will make us happy. I know that work is necessary for those who were not born with a golden spoon in their mouth. But working without a break can give too much stress and burn out to us. Let us do what we need to do, but also do what we want to do.
