Last workout of 2017!

Tonight is New Year's Eve. It's the end of 2017, a year that has had many ups and downs. It's a time for reflection, for apple cider, and for avoiding human contact.

I have no plans for the evening, so I've decided that I will update my blog. You know, the blog I forget about for months on end. Yeah. So I'm going to watch Netflix-flavored Voltron and update my blog. And you, my imaginary readers, shall reap the benefits of my lack of social life.
Aren't you lucky?

December 2017 Update


Well now, I haven't updated in...way too long. I really need to get better at this (he says, not for the first time). Ah well, I'm here, and hopefully that counts for something. If not, well, deal with it. There's hardly anyone who even reads my blog (maybe it's because I never update?). It's time for an update!

What a freaking day! Today was my last Fun Day with Kids World 4 (aka my favorite class), and I had promised them a movie. My plan was made in advance. Today I was told we don't have a laptop use 30 minutes before my class, and that I should change my plan. Could I? Yeah, I'm awesome like that.

May Update

"Optimism is the madness of insisting that
all is well when we are miserable." --Voltaire

Monthly updates continue, though my intent was for them to increase in frequency and, thus, meaning. Perhaps they gain importance by being so spaced out, but I fear that they instead lack relevance, that they fade from the minds of those who might deign to even peruse my troubled blog.

Tonight I must remain awake far past the time a reasonable person would seek refuge in her bed, and thus am afforded the perfect opportunity to post an update. Without further ado...

April Update

CFM box in my face!

Check it out, I'm posting almost one month later! Hoo boy, monthly updates...well, it's something, right? Seriously, and I know I say this every time, but I really ought to update this blog more regularly.

Until further notice, I will continue to utilize Cards for Mindfulness structure my update. Also, so as not to frighten away potential readers, the random shirtless pictures of me holding the cards are going to be replaced by pictures of my amiibo figures with the cards instead. Enjoy!

March Update


Ok, here's a big update from nobody's favorite procrastinator! Monthly is good and all, but maybe with a little practice I can get it up to weekly. Crazypants, right?

This month I will again be using the nifty Cards for Mindfulness deck to guide my update. It worked well enough last time. If any of y'all have one of these decks, feel free to leave a comment and let me know how you use them in your lives. I'm curious!

2017 Reading Challenge #08 - 13


Let me get everyone caught up on my books I've been reading lately. Maybe, moving forward, I'll do a monthly entry for what I've read, making more room on my blog for updates (updates that, well, I am all too forgetful to keep up with regularly). Anyway, one day at a time.

February Update (Cards for Mindfulness)


I really do need to update my blog more regularly. I decided to do a quick update this morning since I'm up way too early for the day ahead of me. Today I'm going to use my Cards for Mindfulness deck (which I backed on Kickstarter) to guide my update, because why the heck not? I haven't really messed with this deck yet, and I thought it would be an interesting exercise

2017 Reading Challenge #04 - 07


I realize I've neglected my blog and I'm trying to get caught up. I'm also working on a second blog with my friend, with whom I am reading this year's list, so I'm taking these four entries from that blog and pasting them here. Sadly the act of copying/pasting them from that blog to this makes formatting all wonky, which doesn't make sense as they're both blogger blogs, but whatever. Here they are, and I'm more or less caught up.

Happy New Year!


Right now I'm sitting in my apartment in Taiwan watching Krull. It's quarter past six and I'm trying to decide what I want to eat for dinner. My roommate is out of the country, so it's just lil' old me here. I decided I should come to my blog and post an update about me, not just the wonderful books I've been reading. So hold on to your butts, here comes my year in review!
