weekender + a song, a book, a quote, a look.

wanting to be back here today. can you really blame me?

Well, folks, it's really been one of those weeks. Truth be told, it's been more than one of those weeks, & I'm just ready for the upswing. For a while, I was really enjoying my psychology classes, but lately they've just been depressing. Sometimes, Psychology likes to try to take life, put it in a neat little box, & explain it. It tries to divide life up into neat little categories & explain to you exactly when, where, & how the things in your life will happen. I don't like to think like that. I've written previously about how thoughts of the passage of time sometimes makes me an anxious nutcase. In order to cope with these feelings of time-is-fleeting anxiety, I choose to view life as one big, solid block of time. Not separated by years or months or milestones... just one big chunk of time & space in which to collect memories & moments & love. And I don't like it when a book tries to tell me otherwise. Maybe I'll write more about this another day. Maybe not.

For the present, how about we focus on some light-hearted, lovely things? Whilst perusing {dear friend} lately, I saw that Anna had participated in a link-up in which you share your current favorite song, book, quote, & look. How could I say no? You're right, I couldn't. 

SBQL, one.

I've said this in other recent posts, but lately, I have been sucking at both reading & writing. However, two things around the Internet have caught my eye recently: Erstwhile dear introduced me to oh life, which I think may help me finally achieve my goal of beginning a one-sentence-per-day journal. 

And then, we have book recs upon book recs from whatever, gatsby. I've linked her summer reading list, but also check out her light reading section for more. 

I've also been spending a lot of time on Goodreads recently.

Now, let's bow our heads & pray for a restorative weekend.
