Sarah… Tuesday?

I feel like I haven’t done a proper Sarah Sunday post in a while since the holidays were busy, so I’m just gonna go ahead and pretend that today is actually Sunday instead of Tuesday.

Reading: WELL, a couple things because it’s the #boutofbooks readathon this week so of course. I started Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit for the Social Justice Book Club, and I started reading the essays in The Feminist Utopia Project, which are FANTASTIC. And today Daniel Jose Older’s newest book comes out, Battle Hill Bolero, and I would be starting that tonight except the tracking on my Amazon package all of the sudden says ETA is tomorrow. And that’s what I get for being lazy and not wanting to go to the store. I may just go out and get it at B&N and return the Amazon copy, b/c what the fuck.

Watching: I’ve been rewatching a lot of stuff – Archer, Captain America: Civil War, Luke Cage, and Deadpool.

Listening: I’ve been playing all the tracks on my phone on random, so… a little bit of everything.

Eating: Some more salads because I need fresh food in my life after all that holiday food. Also, I’m not drinking coffee in 2017 and that already sucks.

 

Exercising: Adding this to my Sarah Sunday posts! Ummm I crushed it last week and worked out 4 times, but so far this week has been off. Didn’t go on Sunday because I woke up really late and had been drinking for NYE, of course. Didn’t go Monday because I was being lazy and didn’t go this morning because I had some extra stuff going on. Tomorrow morning for sure though! Because I like seeing it on my Fitbit updates at the very least.

Thinking: Nothing but wanting to go home and read my books.

Citizen-ing: Another addition to my Sarah Sunday posts, I need a better name for it though. Anyways, so this morning I called my Representative in the House at her local and DC offices and encouraged her to vote against HR5 and the Goodlatte amendment.Β Her staffers couldn’t tell me how she was planning to vote, which is concerning since it was today and all, but they were very kind. I’m trying to make calling reps or taking other actions more of a habit, hence adding it to my weekly update posts.

Anticipating: Reading! I just want to dive face first into my pile of books, TBH. I have that new-year-excitement giving me a push.

Okay time to face the rest of the day. Oy.
