Weekly Shawarma: The One With the Exhaustion

, , No Comments
This is the week that started with good intentions but quickly got derailed by real life. Due to many, many adult responsibilities, your resident Harley Quinn impersonator has been getting home at sketchy hours and completely unable to work on my projects and update Le Blog. Therefore, here we are with Shawarmy goodness on a Saturday. Enjoy!


All The Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders. Having started seeing hype about this book late last year, I was beyond excited to finally get my hands on it and plunge headlong into the world described in the blurb. This brings to mind "The Rook", which I started solely on the basis of the world building and premise then got really into, which was what I was hoping would happen here. So far, I'm 87 pages in and I cannot say I'm a fan. Of course I'll persevere because even "Raising Stony Mayhall" started out a bit slow, but I am unfortunately, unenthused. Let's see.

Living For

A metric tonne of motivational videos. This is precisely the kind of thing you wouldn't expect to work but as it turns out, they are profoundly useful in getting you off your tushie and into gear. I mean, wow. I have a couple saved in my YouTube Watch offline, but here's one of my favourites to listen to on those difficult mornings. Watch here!

Not Appropriately Using

My Stop Breathe Think app. Mid last year, I was under a stunning amount of new pressure and went looking for a meditation app to help get my head back on straight because as we've established, my solution to everything is to get an app. Global warming? Get an app that tells people to stop being jerks to the environment. Can't find a parking space? Find an app that motivates you to walk to school or work. It's really that simple.

Anyway, with the slow easing of that mental stress, I fell off using the app. I honestly miss the zen bubble that came with being a daily user, and recognize the need to have your ish together even when there isn't one specific stresser so the goal for the last two weeks of Feb is to get back in that groove. Le app is available here for Android, iOS and online use. Getchu sooome.

Righto, for extra strength late wrap ups and hopes for a better tomorrow, this has been your host, Magento's oldest child. Until next time, love and light, my beetles.
