Happy April! What are you into these days? I think I might start writing up a post like this regularly to share a little of the everyday and to motivate myself to write more in this space. Share some of your own in the comments if you're so inclined.
Watching: Z Nation with Erik. We have a standing date after Matt goes to bed every night. It's silly and very frequently ridiculous and reminds me of the pre-marriage weekends when we'd scrape the bottom of the DVD barrel at Blockbuster and come up with such cinematic gems as Spanish horror film Dagon.
Listening: I'm trying to catch up on some favorite podcasts. Just finished the Song Exploder episode in which The Roots talk about the making of "It Ain't Fair" and the Special Sauce episode where Ed Levine interviews Andrew Rea (go watch some Binging with Babish right now). Plus, our faculty recently collaborated on a 4th Quarter playlist. I love how it includes hints at our varied personalities as well as a mix of tracks that heal and tracks that get us moving and ready to finish the year strong. Check it out in the player below.
Eating: Snacking on grapes/raw almonds dipped in sweet white miso paste. It sounds weird, but if you like fruit and nuts with salty cheese you'll probably be into this combo. Note if you give it a try: a tiny dab of miso goes a long way.
Feeling: Happysad to be winding down the final semester at my current school. The year is flying by, and I love these kiddos. Not ready to let them go. Plus, our school ceases to exist in May, and we'll move into a new building with a whole new identity, so there's both excitement and anxiety there.
Planning: Travels to all 67 counties in my state within this calendar year, which I talked about a little bit here. I'm in full research/spreadsheet nerd mode, and it is both overwhelming and so fun to try to do this right. Our state is celebrating its bicentennial, and we recently received a couple of copies of the Past Port, a guide to the key historic destinations in each county. It's a beautiful little book, and I look forward to collecting stamps in it.
