WENT: To the cutest little breakfast place in Gloucester, and a great weekend in Boston for Memorial Day.
READ: I finished four books in May! I listened I Shall Be Near To You by Erin McCabe on audio, which while not being one of my all-time favorite books, was probably a top fiction pick for me so far this year. I also listened to A Spool of Blue Thread and Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant, both by Anne Tyler. Neither, I'm sad to say, were as incredible as my first experience with Anne Tyler (An Amateur Marriage). I also finally finished Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts, which took me a long time to get through but was so, so worth it. As always, more reviews in my Instagram Story Highlights!
WATCHED: I really didn't watch a lot of stuff this month, which I guess is a good thing? Friends, Deadliest Catch with my mom, and Masterpiece Mystery's Endeavor are probably my top favorites right now.
WROTE: A lot of journal pages, and Upwork proposals. On the blog: Summer Afternoon in Boston & The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and Hiking Mt. Moosilauke & A (Much Needed) Re-Set.
MADE: A showcase program! And iced tea.
STARTED: Coming up with plans for next year.
CROSSED-OFF: I finally got busy submitting proposals to freelance writing jobs through Upwork.
TRIED: My Novice FS test, sticking to a budget, and a couple new bars.
FAILED: My Novice FS test, to stick to a budget, to pack my bags and lunch the night before.
PERFORMED: A heck of a lot. With American Ice Theater of Boston in Canton, Haverhill, Wesley and Westborough. Competed at Spotlight on the Cape with Act 1 of Boston. Tried my Novice FS test.
THOUGHT: About the fact that every single weekend, from this past March until the end of June, is packed with plans.
What filled your May?
