Music

This old favorite was on repeat all last week and it is looking like this week will be much of the same.

Been listening to this on repeat for days. It is peak comfy synth. Just the right balance of warmth and adventure.

Love when a song stops you dead in your tracks.

Made a playlist last week for World Goth Day. Just a short little mix of some of the standards/intro bands. It is a little heavier on the post-punk side. Recently I’ve been focusing on digging up newer groups so it was nice to spend some time with the favorites.

Went through a period of slowing down my usual reading amount. Suppose that goes hand-in-hand with reading three back-to-back books that required a bit of a pause and reflection after each chapter/essay. Trying to get back into the swing of it. Was lucky enough to find a used copy of Extra Bold: a Feminist, Inclusive, Anti-Racist, Nonbinary Field Guide for Graphic Designers. That should push me to pick up the pace a bit.

The garden is being attacked by mites right now, but neem oil seems to be doing the trick. I know they have to eat too, but it is just out of control. Sorry little ones.

A few weeks ago I attended a portfolio review event through AIGA. I was lucky enough to give five one-on-one presentations. The feedback was almost entirely positive. So thankful to have such a great free resource. Wasn’t sure what to expect when joining AIGA, but the experience has been excellent.

Just cant get enough:

The bunnies are obsessed with trying to get a bite, but I will only allow some sniffs and a couple pieces of arugula.
