Life Lately List

"But then it passes, as all things do."

Yes, I know the year passed and I didn't really get back to regular writing but ... when it's not there, you can't force it... Whatever that means. 

So here is a quick update of life lately. I was home for Christmas (best feeling ever), went to Milan and it was freezing lovely, I got quite ill twice and got better eventually. Now I am back on track, busy at work but eager to do the things I love (somewhat cheesy, apologies).

Loving   

Amy Poehler. I don't know why I end up promoting comedians every time I sit down to write this, but she is a genius. What a brilliant, funny and honest woman. I love Parks and Recreation (her mocumentary-style show, which you need to see!) so I decided to read her memoir - Yes, please. I devoured this book in what felt like seconds. It is funny, yes, but also so much more than that. Every chapter I was reading seemed to resonate with me and my life, it was as if a funny lady from my future was giving me life advice. Yes, it won't become a contemporary classic, but it's a great book for sure.

P.S. I also loved Star Wars The Force Awakens - it's awesome!

Hating

The commute in London. And don't get me wrong, my commute is pretty average for the place, but it's exhausting and it drains my power every morning before I even get to work. The pros and cons of living in a metropolitan city... I do hate it though.

Craving

Mainly sleep these days. Not that I don't get enough of it, there's just room for improvement. I am convinced I could have slept through the last couple of Sundays without a problem. Is this normal? Maybe not...

Listening to

Rihanna's new album ANTI. It went out a few days ago, exclusive to Tidal and Samsung mobile, but who can stay away from the good old Apple people, who generously released it shortly after. I have been hooked - and it's not just your good old gangsta songs, there are a couple of jazz - sounding ones, which are great. Go for it, it's a good album. Plus, I am seeing her and The Weeknd live in June (not bragging at all!).

Reading

At the moment I am reading David Foster Wallace's "enthralling narrative adventures" - Consider the lobster. He uses way too many footnotes and can be a bit pretentious in his writing (he makes up his own words!) but boy, do I have the biggest intellectual crush on this man. He is smart beyond possible and it's so obvious. At one point I started imagining having dinner with him and talking about literature and profound existential dilemmas, and then I realised that I would feel positively stupid next to him and probably wouldn't even open my mouth. Let me just say this... I read a 30-page dictionary review and I really enjoyed it. That tells a lot. He probably wouldn't approve of me listening to Rihanna though...

Thanks for reading and stay tuned (no, really, stay tuned)!
