TWITL – week twenty-seven – spinning lazy dreams

let me savor this
the minutes languid and sweet
spinning lazy dreams


“I’ll Dream of You Again” – working title – My writing pace has slowed, which isn’t surprising. I’m close to 60,000 words but the story is far from over. The story feels almost episodic, which confuses me a little but I’m going with it because the characters demand it. They want me to tell the story this way and I must oblige. I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s obviously a romance. The steamy scenes aren’t as descriptive as I’ve been writing, which I find interesting but it’s not a bad thing. No one else will probably read the story but I’m having the best time writing it. I’ve gotten quite comfortable writing in the first person and I think I’m starting to prefer it. Probably means I should switch to third person for my next story, eh? As written so far, “I’ll Dream of You Again” is probably about halfway finished.

Jack Whitehall – Here we go. I’m admitting that this one is my current Muse. It started with Good Omens (if you have Amazon Prime, GO WATCH THIS SHOW)– Jack plays Newt Pulsifer and I thought he was simply ADORABLE. I told myself, no, you don’t think of him “that way.” I checked out some of his stuff on Netflix and he made me laugh. Then I started writing my current story and Jack just happened to fall into that character. So I’ll admit he’s my latest Muse but that doesn’t mean he’s going to a Listworthy or anything. He’s SO YOUNG! (Not that age matters but…) So there it is, Jack Whitehall is my current Muse…

Listworthy5 – I’m still in a strange limbo about this one. I’m still posting the IG photos and a little to the twitter but is my whole heart in it? Do I still adore him in the same way? Enough of my heart is in it but my adoration has certainly shifted. I’m still in it to participate in our group but a lot of it is because I’m stubborn and will not be run off by a challenging incident. I hope to learn and grow from the whole thing…

4th of July
4th of July Parade in Brentwood

I’m on vacation! My first day of vacation was July 4th. I thought I’d do something different and take the week AFTER 4th of July off from work. We had the 4th and 5th off (since they were Thursday and Friday, respectively) so extending my long weekend into a whole week was an easy decision.

We woke up early so that we could set our chairs in a good spot. The parade was a fun watch, a bit on the short side but that was all right. Later in the day, we headed to my cousin’s place in Pleasant Hill for dinner then fireworks. Good times, good times!

Stranger Things 3 – Yes, we binge watched this during the weekend. No spoilers! I will say that I enjoyed it more than the second season. I think knowing the characters and the world made it more enjoyable.

Blood & Treasure – This is a fun show! It’s adventuresome and intriguing and fun. The leads are good looking, OF COURSE, and the female lead is super kickass! I’m glad we started watching it and I’m also glad that it’s getting a second season. I love summer shows!

In the Dark – I’m reluctantly watching and reluctantly enjoying it. Is that weird thing to say? The lead actress has hooked me though and I’m digging the mystery of the show. What happened to her friend? Will we find out? I have my suspicions so we shall see…

Bad Education – This was a British show starring Jack Whitehall (hence me watching it). I’m almost finished with season one. I’m not sure how to describe the show. Jack plays a young teacher who has a good heart but terrible instincts. It’s fun to watch him stumble. He’s sweet but clueless. He’s probably the worst teacher ever…

Jack Whitehall
Jack once more….

I have a celebrity crush type, don’t I? Jack seems to be of the slightly dorky variety but he makes me laugh and I like that…
