I like to slow down in the middle of the week to kick back and reflect, and also think ahead about what's next.
To do: Get more sleep, pay my taxes and get my work goals in order, and buy some nice coffee and snacks to keep at my desk so that I stop drinking the piss and Snickers they sell at the office.
What I did manage to do this week so far: Getting started on "Just Kids" by Patti Smith (a birthday present), going on a 10-km walk at a nature reserve near my house with a friend before work, and deciding against buying a sleeveless linen shirt in the Outnet clearance sale because although I would like a more upscale version of my old ASOS one, it has served me well enough over the years. One of the things I'm trying to do better when it comes to shopping is to resist the urge to upgrade for the sake of upgrading, when the item in question is not at all poor in quality and fit.
I have the day off tomorrow, so I'm going for yoga, and then kick back with a friend, watch "Captain America" and show her the spectacular blister I got from the walk (I don't understand how it happened, I wore thick, cushy socks).
I love this Garance Dore picture. I wouldn't wear tie-dye trousers, but I'll love to channel that easy, barefoot vibe.
How's everyone's week so far?
