Not a lot to tell you guys about today’s outfit except that I wore it because turtleneck + high waisted pants + basic pumps is always a winning look, and also because I could stuff all of these items into my gym bag with reasonable assurance that they wouldn’t get wrinkled before work. We started a new routine where we go climbing first thing in the morning and then I go to work directly from the gym, so I’m having to figure out a whole new routine and environment to get dressed in (in a locker room! in front of strangers! hope I like the outfit I picked out because I literally have no other clothes with me!)
I thought that my alarm going off at 4:45 would be horrible, but it actually gives me an opportunity to just sit in bed with a cup of coffee for 20 minutes or so while I wake up gently, quietly and by myself. I recommend it.
I even managed to get makeup and jewelry on at the gym! Woo!
What I’m Reading This Week:
I’m still plugging along on my 52 books a year goal. Last week I finished Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily and Amelia Nagoski, and Record of A Spaceborn Few from the Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers, which I had started as an audio book in the fall and never finished (audio isn’t my favorite way to read a book, so I frequently end up abandoning them…). I love a good space opera, and this was a very good space opera.
This week I’m all about romance. Specifically, feminist historical romance. More specifically, finishing up the novella collection, How the Dukes Stole Christmas and reading Sarah Maclean’s Never Judge a Lady By Her Cover, the fourth and final book in her Rules for Scoundrels series. Romance is a genre that I wholeheartedly endorse and defend, so if you ever find yourself thinking that romance novels are mindless drivel, please be reminded that the patriarchy works hard to reinforce that impression, but that the romance genre is actually really important and awesome.
