Was able to relate to Melancholia at a disturbingly high level.
1Q84 is one of those novels that I don’t necessarily want to end so I’m limiting myself to a few chapters a day.
Experienced a brief existential crisis on the drive home from my sister’s last night.

Currently reading four books at once. Things are getting a little out of hand.

Enjoying physical fitness and all the reading I’ve been doing. A few days in NYC will be a much needed respite from the daily grind.
I’m feeling optimistic today.
