Osian and Dannel have an epic setup. They live in a building owned by Danny’s family–so no rent. They do have to keep an eye on their neighbour’s and help clean up. All things considered, they’ve got the best of everything.
So what do I love about it?
There is an eclectic group of people who live in the apartment building. Ian is probably my favourite secondary character. He’s a riot.
They live in Covent Garden and have a colourful and eclectic view out the window.
The apartment building was built in the 40s…and looks like it. It’s lovely. Check out my Pinterest for the visual reference I used.
In my post on executive dysfunction a few months ago, I believe I mentioned having a cleaning routine. I might’ve also talked about my daily routine that helps me cope on hard days. If I didn’t, I meant to.
I have both a morning and evening routine. Truthfully, I follow the former more frequently than the later. Evenings just don’t always go to plan.
The key thing to me following a routine at all?
Keep it simple.
Complexity doesn’t work for me when I’m stumbling around in the morning without coffee.
I wake up, a key part of any morning routine.
Splash my face with water, brush my teeth (and hair…separate process lol), and stretch.
Make the bed.
And that’s it.
That is literally my early morning routine.
Everything else that comes next is part of my to-do list for the day and may or may not get done.
I have an incredibly long TBR on my kindle. Books I’ve bought that have languished unread for months (or years in a couple cases.) So here’s a least of ten, in no particular order, that I’ve bumped up in the hopes I’ll read them this month (or next, if I’m honest.)
After a conversation on Twitter with Sasha Devlin about music, I started thinking about the first albums I purchased in my late teens and early twenties. I had my Discman and a handful of CDs. I used to listen to them as I walked to work.
These are the ones I remember. I’m sure there were others.
Jarabe De Palo
Third Eye Blind
So, Shakira, Tracy Chapman, and Jarabe de Palo came from when I moved to Santo Doming at 19 and lived there for two years. The rest I got when I was 18.
I think I listened to the first Matchbox 20 album at least three times a day. It soothed my angst-ridden soul.
How about you?
What were the first albums you remembered listening to?
