Diversions, vol. 78
Some product links are affiliate links but all are where I make my gear purchases. You can also find all of my photography gear recommendations here.
Progress is a tricky beast. We all spend our formative years in school slowly progressing through grades, with a ceremonial hoorah to keep us all going. Actual, adulthood life is nothing like the slow and steady progress of school! The only applicable portion of school has been group projects. Scowling at the group slacker and trying to figure out exactly how to get credit for my portion of work is the day to day usual. Plus the whole wondering if other people will hold up their end or leave me to stay up till 3am to finish the project. I think we should all have more arbitrary parades to keep us going through life as adults. Sent your taxes in on time, have a parade! Woke up, put on pants and ate a healthy breakfast, have a parade!
Anyway aside from trying to covert everyone to the joy of dumb parades, I’ve been:
Crying from laughter at Amy Schumer's new special.
Admiring this Curbed article about lead paint. It uses illustrations really beautifully.
Bookmarking a ton of recipes now that Eli and I are not doing Whole30. There are these peanut rice noodles, this salmon with broccolini and this ricotta dip that doesn’t even have exact measurements.
Watching old acclaimed movies like The Deer Hunter (very strange) and Heat (so good) that I’ve heard about for years but have never watched. Eli might be stopping this soon because I spent a considerable portion of both movies marveling at how handsome Robert De Niro was in his youth.
Living in denial that Eli and I are no longer in Mexico City by taking a month to edit all my photos from the trip. So far I’ve shared some photos from spots to photograph and some of my hotel photos from the trip.
Working on my New Year’s Resolution of doing 10 regular push ups slowly but surely and these progression exercises are really great.
Diversions is my way of sharing links of interesting things that I’ve come across recently. To see past diversions or subscribe visit https://tinyletter.com/AdventuresOnceHad.
