Alissa Lately

reading // How Did You Get This Number by Sloane Crosley. I read her first book of essays, I Was Told There'd Be Cake (amazing, a must read), a few years ago and I've had this one on my to-read list for a while. I'm only a few chapters in, but I'm liking it so far.

writing // Two weekends ago, I went up to Saratoga by myself to write. Not for the blog, just for myself, and it was the best thing I've done in a long time. It's amazing how easy it is to write when you know no one else will be reading it.

listening // To the videos I still have on my phone from the Justin Timberlake concert back in November, when Kelsey and I drove out to meet Michelle for the first time. Kelsey and I are going to see JT on Wednesday night (this time the show is ~9.5 hours closer to home), but it won't be the same without you, Shell!

thinking // About lunch. Is it too soon? Whatever.

smelling // My coffee.

wishing // That Katy Perry did stand up. Or strictly acoustic shows. Don't get me wrong - she's my queen, and she puts on an amazing show, but my favorite part was when she spent some time interacting with the audience. She's so weird. She gets it. I love her.

hoping // I don't have a panic attack while packing for my trip in a couple weeks. I made a spreadsheet last week to help me get organized (I'm only slightly neurotic) so I hope that helps.

wearing // A polka-dotted shirt, because I like to channel my inner Seth Avett. And I also haven't done laundry since last week, and this was my last clean "work" shirt.

loving // wanting // needing // I can answer all three of these with two words: Scott Avett

feeling // Still sick! I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm not getting any better.

clicking // Though Instagram. So many photos/videos of the Avetts from their 3 shows at the Red Rocks over the weekend, and they are all making me emotional.
