Inspired by Tom MacWright’s Recently posts, here’s what’s been going on with me!
I got my vinyl copy of Nothing Happens by Wallows on Thursday and I’m delighted :)
I discovered Su Lee through kyuuwaii’s cover of Can’t Get Over You by Joji aka Pink Guy, which was fun. She is wonderful.
I don’t know when the last time I read a book was, but I have been itching for a reread of the Eragon series in order to read the first book in the sequel series.
I do spend a lot of time reading my many RSS feeds I’ve subscribed to in Feedbin. Here’s some of the articles I’ve read recently:

I’m hoping that in the theme of zettelkasten I can post more useful tidbits of information that can be useful for both myself and y’all. I remember a post from Chris Krycho (do you see a theme here?) about using his blog as a public notebook, and I definitely vibe with that idea.
In November I stopped drinking coffee and soft drinks and started taking Vitamin D supplements and using the Rise sleep app to track my sleep in a non-didactic way, and I had a good experience. Carport Coffee is an active hindrance on this plan though. They have delicious coffee and take great consideration in their brewing and water filtration.
