This week, I had multiple Chinese New Year gatherings with friends and family. Being around so many people at the same time can be a challenge for me but I try to remind myself that family is a blessing.
In between all the dong dong dong chiang, I worked. This year, one of my projects includes managing a program for journalists (and media practitioners) who tell religion-related stories. We had our first needs assessment meeting this week.
I’ve also been working on an outline for a collection of short stories. And I did a full-day SEO sprint with one of my clients.
Somehow, I managed to find time to clock in 20 hours of Stardew Valley and get through half a season of The Ghost Bride.
Does it surprise you that this blog has been quiet? But hopefully, I’ll be writing a bit more here in the coming weeks (and months).
I’ve done a few of Bernadette Mayer’s writing experiments since I first discovered the list years ago. But this year, I’ve decided to begin keeping various journals to record trivial things like what I ate, or places I’ve visited. I’m hoping it’ll help me become accustomed to noticing the world around me.
