My Fall Bucket List

Hiya Hart Beat. How are you? I hope your Monday is going well, mine is off to a good start and I’m ensconced in my studio writing (procrastinating away). I’ve been pretty dedicated to writing these last few weeks and have been plugging along this morning like most other days. If you haven’t learned yet from Instagram, my life is pretty boring since coming back on the Camino. Most days I wake up early, walk downtown with Mateo, buy a coffee, walk back home, write, write, read, check twitter, look out the window, make coffee, pick at my slowly regrowing toenails, write some more, go for a bike ride, eat dinner, knit, binge on Arrested Development, and pass out with the lights on at 9pm.

It’s amazing.

I am so so so happy Hart Beat and can’t believe how lucky I am. Over the summer I wrote to you that I pulled together a summer bucket list and I am happy to report that I did all of them except two. Here’s a recap:

  • See the friends that I haven’t seen in the past few years (hi sister wives).
  • Find a song that I like as much as Malibu (highly doubtful). Almost…Issues by Julia Michaels This version of is pretty damn good. 
  • Win a sailing race in the Berkshires. Sad times :(
  • Skinny dip in the ocean. Under a full moon, boom take that.  
  • Read a book a week (should be easy for someone who’s daily responsibilities include watering my Grandmother’s flowers and going to the beach..) So. Many. Pages.
  • Play in my family’s August tennis tournament. (It was started the year I was born and my entire family plays in it every year. I have never competed.) No, but I did run it.. That should count.
  • Write every day. 💪

And now, here for fall. It was easier to come up with some since most are things that I’m already working on (that counts right, Hart Beat?).

  • Go to the movies once a week. So far I’ve seen Logan Lucky (good), Wind River (VERY good), and can’t wait to see Home Again this week.
  • Get to Boston, Washington D.C., San Fransisco, and Toronto to see friends.
  • Go to a book reading or signing every month. (Super excited that first up is Rupi Kaur in Cambridge.)
  • Finish the sweater that I started knitting about two winters ago. I want to actually wear it this year.
  • Teach Mateo how to play dead when I point a finger at him and say “Bang Bang” a la the Kill Bill Volume II final scene. We’re still working on stay so this might be a full year goal.
  • Keep trying to learn french… Not going “tellement bien d’être honnête.” Although I have been dreaming in a French/Spanish combo which is pretty fun.
  • Keep working on this GD book every day.

What do you think, Hart Beat? Pretty doable, right? What are your fall goals? Any of them line up with what I’m doing? In other news here are a few things I’ve read around the internet lately that I’ve loved:

Anyway, that’s life lately Hart Beat. I hope the week treats you okay and that you get outside a bit. Hopefully talk soon. I have to get back to writing and stop this procrastination nation.

Happy Friday, Hart Beat

Hi Hart Beat! I was resting my legs all week long and am late with a post, I know. Lucky for you here are some articles that I did spend time reading this week that I thought you might like to see. P and I are going up to stay with my parents this weekend and I’m so excited to get out of the city. California really won me over with that whole “not humid” thing. Happy weekend, Hart Beat.

Apparently you can cure chronic lateness… Might have to try this one.

I want to eat this all summer long.

Have to try this bar next time I’m in North Brooklyn.

RBG spins truth.

Sleep makes the modern girl.

Speaking of girls, don’t call me one.

THE HAPPIEST OF FRIDAYS. Oh Hart Beat, for some reason this week was super long and I am so glad it’s Friday. The reason is probably because Saturday morning I’m running the Brooklyn Half Marathon and I’m very nervous slash excited. Any of you out there in internet world have plans for the weekend? If not you should come cheer me on! Carolyn and I are both running and there’s going to be a party at the end at Coney Island. What else do you want to do on a Saturday morning?

Until then, here are my top five links from the week:

. The most popular jukebox songs depending on your zip code in New York.

. All I want to after reading this article is go to Brimfield insane antique market.

. Last week was Brigitte and this week we have Katharine Hepburn as our style guide. I love her.

Abandoned love signs from Miss Moss.

. I have the worst wanderlust right now and this blog post from Madewell is not helping.

Oh also, here’s an Instagram photo from this week (shameless plug to get you readers to follow me there). Isn’t Bay Ridge a crazy cool place?
