When you try to πŸ™‚ but you end up 🀨. Story of my (selfie) life.

Hogwarts acceptance letter: the first hand-lettering project I’ve done in ages! It was so fun.

It just occurred to me that after many years on this planet I still don’t have a favorite combination of pizza toppings. πŸ•

This is weird, right? πŸ€”

What’s your favorite?

Weezer’s Teal Album is the cover album I didn’t know I needed. 🎡 I’ve been listening to it all day!

Posted @withrepost β€’ Stunning truth from @mattzhaig, as always.

Quick practice lettering from a movie still. Getting excited to work on a fun lettering project!

Book two of 2019: Golden State, by Ben H. Winters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ πŸ“š Fascinating novel about a near-future society’s attempt to eradicate lying from human nature. A must-read if you are at all concerned by the battle over truth and fiction currently playing out in the world.

Why do I post photos of what I cook? I know that sharing casual food photos has become an “uncool” use of the internet.

I post these photos to remind myself that I rewrote the story I used to believe, the story that I can’t cook. I can: here is the evidence.

Bibimbap-ish rice with veg and an egg on top. Easy to make!

The world can be a cold and spiky place. Today I am grateful for coworkers who support and inspire me.

Thai steak panang curry. 😍

Matthew McConaughey read me a bedtime story. The future is pretty boss. (I’d like Tilda Swinton and Henry Rollins options too, robot overlords.)

The sound I made when I realized I finally made it to the top of the months-long hold queue for this book: eeeeEEEEEEEeeeeee πŸ₯³

Had a marvelous time at the Judge John Hodgman show tonight. And I’m ready to settle arguments with my official challenge coin!

Scenes from Tolkien’s birthday celebration at Kennedy School. Lord of the Rings boardgaming!

Deconstructed samosas. I kinda liked this vegan dish, but it was bland and the tortillas had a dismaying texture. I used honey to solve both problems. 🍯 🐝 Thanks, bees! I love you!

Some treasures: labradorite, opal, and amethyst, plus a labradorite-infused candle. πŸ’ŽπŸ•―οΈ

Looking forward to re-reading one of my favorite books, Helene Wecker’s “The Golem and the Jinni”. πŸ“š

First read of 2019: “Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine” by Gail Honeyman. Quick, compelling read with a satisfying and not saccharine ending. Recommended! πŸ“š

Another tool for the new year: Baron Fig’s Wander Dream Journal. I have been plagued with nightmares most nights for as long as I can remember. I’m aiming for some greater understanding as to why through recording and reviewing them in this notebook.

Bullet Journal, Hobonichi Techo, pen, and ink. I am ready for 2019.

Today was a calm, joyful, relaxing, and restorative day at home. Naps and long-distance chats and cooking and reading. And presents! I hope you, too, were able to spend the day just as you wanted.
