some things never change

such as my preference for studying with the assistance of espresso.
(or my tendency to take pictures of my coffee).

things that make me feel old

  • a younger sibling about to turn 17 years old
  • a third grade cousin talking about using flash drives for school projects and remembering that I used floppy disks at that age
  • realizing that the first Toy Story film came out over 15 years ago
  • hearing 90’s music on an oldies station
  • balancing my checkbook
  • using expressions like “where I grew up” and “when I was in college” in conversation
  • people asking my parents if I’m dating anyone seriously / planning to get married soon
  • a newly developed habit of watching CNN

how i spend my sunday mornings

When the weather is nice, there’s no better way to start a Sunday than on my porch with a good book and a fresh cup of coffee.

I’ve taken a break from my current reading list to return to an old love of mine. In my mind, Les Misérables is one of the best books ever written, worth all 1200-some pages, and is tied with The Count of Monte Cristo as my favorite of all time.
