Self-Care Friday (Week 4)

Some weeks are harder than others and this was one of those weeks. Luckily I have plans tomorrow and Saturday, so that’s a very good thing. I didn’t really finish music this week — just one book — and my audio book expired on Overdrive so I’m listening to an actual book on CD.

What I’ve been reading:

  • Read Harder
    • Read a superhero comic with a female lead: Storm Volume 1: Make it Rain by Greg Pak, Victor Ibanez, and Scott Hepburn
  •  Completed
    • The Divine by Tomer Hanuka, Assaf Hanuka, and Boaz Lavie
  • Reading:
    • Go Tell It on the Mountain by James Baldwin
    • The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu (audio book – on hold)
    • Chapelwood: the Borden dispatches by Cherie Priest
    • Under the Midnight Sun by Keigo Higashino
    • Reykjavik Nights by Arnaldur Indriðason (audio book on CD)

What I’m watching:

I finished Kaitou Tantei Yamaneko, which had a really weird twist toward the end that I’m not sure I liked. I also loved Get Out and highly recommend it. South Pacific was an interesting movie, but I dislike the way it ended.

  • Voice (Korean drama)
  • Tokyo Tarareba Musume (Japanese drama)
  • Totsuzen Desu ga, Ashita Kekkon Shimasu (Japanese drama)
  • Twin Peaks
  • Hackers
  • Oklahoma!
  • Anne Get Your Gun

What I’m listening to:

Lu Han

Gugudan

SHINee – 1and1

Dreamcatcher

1949 Cast Recording of South Pacific

The Wednesday Four

Two things about this week’s links. The first is that I will forever have a huge soft spot for the movie Hackers. I know that it’s not really a great movie, but I adore it and I cannot imagine growing up without having watched it. My sister and I still quote it to each other (along with another cult classic from our youth, Empire Records). There is something endearing and enduring about Hackers, it was in many ways such an innocent time, too. The second thing is that I adore the late Oliver Sacks and his writing. If you’ve never read any of his books, do yourself a favor and read one. It could be one of his science books, or something else of his entirely. Please, go read his writing. It’s great way to remember him.

Week 15 is all about Russia and intolerance.
