Look Back: March

I found this meme somewhere in a similar form, I don't know where, too much clicking through and around. But it seemed like it might be a good monthly review, something to get me blogging when I don't feel like it. 

  1. I'm currently reading: Last week I read My Booky Wook by Russell Brand, and I'm currently reading It Sucked and Then I Cried by Heather Armstrong and The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner. I'm loving all three!
  2. Newest music I added to my iTunes: I just downloaded a live version of Come On Get Higher by Matt Nathanson, and I just bought Nothing Fancy by Craig Carothers (love, love, love.)
  3. Movies I saw: I saw a few different movies in NY while passing the days getting ready for the move, but nothing that stuck out. 
  4. Yummy food I made: I haven't made anything lately. I made creamy chicken enchiladas at my sister's before leaving. They were great!
  5. The last place I ate out: Sadly, Burgerville. But I've eaten at tons of great Portland eateries lately, including The Red Fig, Pastini's, and Noah's New York Bagels.
  6. Something that I'm thankful for: My apartment. It's small and I can hear the neighbors showering, but it's mine.
  7. Something that made me cry: Saying goodbye to so much to make room for my new life in Portland.
  8. Something that made me laugh: Talking with my sister; we laugh a lot. Also, I was able to laugh at all the move-induced chaos (for short periods, in between the tears.)
  9. Something I'm looking forward to: My first trip back to the Pacific Ocean.
  10. Something I want to remember about this month: I went through a lot in March. Most of it was pretty difficult, but, with the help of a lot of family and friends, I made it. It was a big transition and I feel good to have gone through it.


  1. The Red Fig?? On Fremont?? Really?? When was that? Because, you know, that's precisely three blocks right down my street!!! I'm going to email you my phone number for you to put into your electronic little telephone for these times. As for Burgerville... I had the spicy black bean gardenburger basket there...extra veggies, no sauce. Yummy.

  2. My Booky Wook just arrived in my mail from Amazon yesterday, along with two other memoirs I ordered from them.. Looking forward to reading something that will make me laugh! :) I'm saving It Sucked and then I Cried for next time... Here's to hoping April is at least a little less challenging than March...
