under the tide

I have a cold. I had been doing so well this winter and then Matt brought me this. It's not horrible, mostly just annoying. I've been sniffly because of sinus for a week or so, but last night it just sort of hit me all of a sudden. I ended up just finishing off an old Portal 2 saved game because it was all I really had the brain power for.

I know it's only a few days into the new year, but I did start up a new notebook for the year, following the bullet journal method I linked to before. I'm really liking it so far, although I'm a little worried about space? I picked a journal that Matt's mom bought me for Christmas a few years ago and while I like it, the lines on each page are big and I don't know -- it seems like it might not hold a whole year's worth? I suppose we'll see. Maybe it'll be fine.

I'm still listening to The Satanic Verses... because well, it's long. And honestly even on audio it's a little boring. I'm determined to see it through, but it's just going to take me a little while to get through the second half of it. At least I'm into actual story now instead of all background. It's not something I can listen to while I'm working though, which does change how fast I can get through it, it requires concentration so it's basically become a car-listen. I should start up something else while I'm at work, but I haven't. Instead I've been putting the new Kings of Leon album on repeat, and mixing in Chvrches and other stuff as Google Play recommends them to me.

I hope you feel better REALLY soon and that it just stays a cold!

Sometimes with journals where the lines are really widely spaced (if that's what you meant) I try to fit 2 lines of information between each line. For some pages it works out awesomely, for others I can't read what I wrote because I tried TOO hard to make it fit. :)

Yeah, the lines are too wide in this journal, I thought about doubling up... but I like writing ON a line too much. And I'm not really one to complain about needing a reason to buy more notebooks/journals, so if I need a new one, I need a new one. :)

Ha! I totally understand the enjoyment of buying new journals. I have more journals than things to actually write in them. :D
