Notes from My Weekend & What I've Been Listening to Lately


I've been wanting to write diary-like posts again. When I started blogging, that's pretty much what every post was. I like writing about specific things in a post, but this is my compromise. I won't do these posts every Monday. There's no set schedule.

Friday: I wasn't able to fall asleep until around five in the morning. I woke up around 6:45 to feed the dogs, and couldn't fall asleep again. I watched Spongebob for a couple hours like a real adult. I fell asleep around ten, and woke up around two in the afternoon to playful, barking dogs. I treated myself to some candy, and took photos in the evening. I gave up my will to care for most of this day. This is also the day I stopped putting my hair up, because I think I'm getting eczema on my scalp. 

Saturday: I was running on very little sleep again. I had a brunch date with my mom, and shopped around for a bit. I had to go to the grocery store, and I learned a couple life lessons there. I'm quicker on my own. Anyway, I ended the day early. I felt ill, and subsequently slept for fifteen hours. I never took my antidepressant. Saturday was a quick day.

Sunday: I woke up around ten in the morning with a full-on cold. It was fine. It was cold outside, and I felt pleasant mentally. I didn't mind spending my morning playing catch up and preparing for Monday in bed. That's the thing with blogging and working from home like I do; Sundays are work days. Friday and Saturday are the real weekend. I enjoy this aspect. I painted a bit, did the day's illustration, had my favorite comfort food for dinner, and kept the windows open late into the evening. I personally think I did Sunday right.

My original intent for this post was actually just a playlist of what I've been listening to lately. I used to post monthly playlists over here, a few years ago now probably, and I tried to bring that back last year, but it died almost instantly. Instead of striving for a monthly series, I'll just post a little playlist of some of my current favorite songs. I've been listening to a lot of oldies but goodies, an excessive amount of Father John Misty, and The Kills' Ash & Ice on repeat. I'm really into this playlist. I hope you like something on it too.

  1. It's good though, to have days where you give up on caring, like your Friday. I had a day like that on Saturday and after half the day had passed I just accpeted that okey, this is one of those days. Just eat, drink tea and do whatever you feel like! Lovely to hear that your Sunday felt better though, love Sundays! Have a darling week Amber!Xx

  4. Diary posts are some of my favorite to read on blogs. Sunday's sort of my blog "work" day, too. It's bittersweet for Monday is right around the corner. Hope you recover from your cold soon, Amber!

    Yes, definitely found something to like on this playlist. I discovered Cigarettes After Sex earlier this year and was really blown away by their slow, dreamy sound. Do you like Mazzy Star as well?

    1. Thank you Alyse! Cigarettes After Sex are just gorgeous, it was difficult to only pick one song. I haven't listened to Mazzy Star, no, but that's definitely on my radar now!

  7. Sorry to hear that Friday was a bit rough - but sometimes those "I don't care" days are totally necessary! I'm excited to check out some songs from your playlist, too (so glad you included Bon Iver!) Hope your week has been off to a great start Amber!
