January

  • a less than ideal start of the year with endless coughing fits, sore throat, vomiting and other flu symptoms, lasting two weeks
  • living off fresh fruit and vegetables from the market, ginger-lemon smoothies, and copious amounts of tea with honey
  • expanding my cooking repertoire: learning to flavour tempeh, tofu & making hummus from scratch
  • getting into Agn├Ęs Varda and Jacques Tati
  • catching up on last year's films with THE LIGHTHOUSE, THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO, JOJO RABBIT, KNIVES OUT & JOKER
  • weekly trips to the library after renewing my subscription & reading every day before bed: ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE & NORMAL PEOPLE

February

  • house-sitting for my sister on the weekends, swapping city life for the countryside: taking care of animals, making the most of large spaces (long bathing rituals, attempts at playing piano, singing loudly), the utterly dark and still nights
  • seeing LITTLE WOMEN at the cinema with my mother and sister
  • continuing the great big 2019 movie catch-up: UNCUT GEMS, 1917, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE & THE FAREWELL
  • having a heart-to-heart with my supervisor, voicing my issues & figuring out a work-around by changing my schedule and job responsibilities
  • seeing Sleater-Kinney live, being a few feet away from Carrie Brownstein's signature high kicks and beaming smile and inches from Corin Tucker who handed out guitar picks (which I ended up not taking because I'm an idiot)
