August Favorites

Instead of doing weekly favorites I thought I would do a monthly favorite, except I haven’t done a very good job of keeping track of things so far this month so I’m not sure how well this will go.

My very first favorite has to be the late-summer, late-afternoon light, as you can see in the picture above, it is like extended golden hour.

TV Shows/Movies

The Sandman

I did not expect to like this show, I thought it would be too weird, too dark, but it actually is very good. It is definitely very weird and a bit dark, in that classic DC way, but it is a interesting, and a good story. I’m intrigued by it.

Burn Notice

Burn Notice has become one of my comfort shows, I’ve never seen it before. It seems to have been on in the early 2000s, but it doesn’t seem terribly dated in the way many early 2000s shows are. There seems to be an endless number of seasons and it’s easy to hop in and out of.


I seem to really be finding my groove with my exercise routine, I’ve been going for walks almost every day, doing lots of pilates with The Pilates Class, and doing a couple Sweat Sessions with Aubre Winters a month (they are kind of expensive classes), and I haven’t felt this content with how often I am exercising and the quality of my exercise in years, at least since before the pandemic.

Oh, and roller skating! It’s so fun and great cardio.

Podcast Favorites

It’s Me Tinx: How to Throw a Funeral

I came back to this episode last week. I really like this idea, it’s not for things that you really need to mourn, like real relationships or getting fired, but for things you allowed yourself to future-trip about. That person you went on a couple dates with and started thinking about being with and getting married to. The job that you had interviews for in the cool town that you started imagining yourself living in, not real losses, but things that bruised your ego. It’s stupid, it’s meant to be stupid, the stupider the better. But it works, it’s fun.

Maintenance Phase: French Women Don’t Get Fat

Music Favorites

This band opened for Aly and AJ when I saw them in June and then have quickly become one of my favourite groups.
I love a break-up track
I love Fletcher, which isn’t very straight of me, but no one writes break up music better.
Maggie Rogers is definitely not experiencing a second album slump. This album is soooooo good.
I’m definitely re-entering my indie/rock music phase lol

I would probably include a favorite buys list/collage here, but I haven’t bought anything but groceries so far this month so, I have nothing to list here!
