Lately:

I took instagram off my phone a few days ago so I haven't been taking a lot of personal photos. I have done the following:

- Took an "autumn soup making" class alone and loved it. Autumn and all this nice chilly (not cold) weather is definitely my favorite.

- Got my COVID booster shot and spent an entire day lying in bed with a massive headache.
- Purchased a Wacom Cintiq because I really desperately want to make more illustrations again soon.
- Had the above thanksgiving dinner alone, but watched "Home Alone" with my friend Heather while we texted about the movie while I ate it.

Things I mentioned:

My Imagen AI Patreon review - https://www.patreon.com/posts/article-review-55417998

Last month's video about burn out and creativity (which felt very reminiscent of my podcasts because we talked so much about feelings - https://www.patreon.com/posts/video-staying-57490753

Things I’ve been loving:

- This collection of photos by brian chorski
- The absolutely surreal art of Ismail Zaidy

- Rereading Hyperbole and a Half (I have two of Allie Brosh's books and I connected with someone in Costco because I was carrying one around). Her comic about depression is incredible. (and there's a Part 2)
- Learning to identify new feelings in my body. I had this whole exercise with my therapist where I told her I felt "numb" and she got out a bunch of "feelings" cards and we went through them one by one and it turned out, I wasn't numb, I was just having feelings that I didn't recognize how they felt in my own body. So now, I use a feelings chart and I love it.
- Breakfast. This could be in every podcast newsletter episode, really, because cooking breakfast for myself is dope.
