hey 19

I wonder if I'll ever NOT marvel at how quickly time goes by. I find it hard to believe that we're already (almost) three months into this year.

I also wonder if my creative side is ever going to re-emerge. It certainly seems to have gone pretty deep into hibernation.

Doing a reading challenge this year - it's on Goodreads, part of the "Across The Year" challenge, where 52 different themes are provided - a different theme for each week of the year. On top of that, I've given myself the additional challenge of having each author be female. While I haven't found anything that has totally wowed me yet, I *am* reading books I most likely wouldn't have stumbled upon had I not been doing the challenge to begin with.

I've found that I've watched a lot fewer movies so far this year. Probably because so much of my freetime has been taken up with novel-reading. (Also because finding movies I want to watch seems to be increasingly difficult, even as the choices out there multiply exponentially. SO MUCH STREAMING out there. And yet, I think I've seen maybe 5 movies so far this year. And none of them super-awesome. Year's still young, though, so we'll see.

It snowed here a few days ago, and there is actually more snow forecasted for this week. The snow that we had didn't stick for very long (other parts of the city got like an inch or two, based on all their social media gloating) but, it was kind of neat to get any of the white stuff at all. I could do without the extended cold snap that is accompanying it, but I'll take 30s and 40s over 120s any day, so I'm not complaining.

That's gonna do it for this particular entry. I didn't have anything specific I wanted to say, just to blog and give a brief update, I guess, and now that that's done...
