onefixedstar: (mystery)
Hmm, you'd think after finishing my comp, I'd have more time to post. But of course, now I'm not trying to desperately to procrastinate, and so I'm less motivated. Instead, I've been trying to catch up with things I let slide over the summer. The past two weeks have mostly been errands and housework: fall cleaning (finally!) and taking in pants to be hemmed and unpacking boxes that have been sitting in my room for two years now...things like that. I updated, backed up, and sychronized my computers today, which is why I'm here again. Tomorrow I might even try backing up my laptop to a location that isn't located in my apartment just in case I don't have time to grab my laptop on the night when the space heater finally sets fire to our living room. I even have an external hard drive waiting in my office for this very purpose, but I haven't backed anything up on it in about six months.

Oh, I've also been reading. Mostly at the gym, on the bike, but occasionally I'll finish the book when I get home. (The inability to stop in the middle of a work of fiction, even if it's three in the morning and I have to get up at eight, is a problem of mine.) Most recently I've been reading Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, which is dense and depressing enough that even I don't want to read it all in one go, and Dropped Threads 3, which I found a little disappointing. There were a few good pieces in there, but a lot more fluffy feel-good pieces. Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul, but in advice form rather than story form. I picked up a couple more books at the library this afternoon; maybe one of them will be better. In the mean time, I think today was my last catch up day. From now on, catching up will be done in the evening, and my days will be spent planning my second comp.
