song of the day: rosé
Rosé by the British band The Feeling.
I am in love with this song. It's the closest thing I found to describe a sunny winter day in San Francisco. Just today I was walking outside on my lunch break and I was almost overwhelmed by the light that greeted me. Such gentle, delicate light. As if the sun is reaching out to atone for our unusually cold days lately. And it is very cold. Or at least for someone like me, who grew up in a tropical island and spent the last 9 years in California.
So how is January treating you guys so far? Chilly weather aside, the year is off to a great start for me. I've already read 4 books and 1 novella. Don't ask me how that happened but I'm on constant reading mode lately. The only downside is I'm reading way past my bedtime, you know how that goes, 2 a.m. and you're still trying to finish the last 50 or so pages. When it comes to a good book, sleep is often an afterthought.
I've also started keeping a daily to-do list of (at least) 2 things that makes me happy. Something like: write a letter, take a nap, walk to the library. Just little things. And I must say that it really does make a difference at the end of each day.
