Now

I’m in my second year living in St. Johns and twenty-third year living in Portland. I’m in my fifty-first year of being alive and my fourth year as a diagnosed autistic. I’m in my third year of trying to figure out my health — my lymph nodes remain a question — and my second year of trying to find a psychoconsultant both knowledgeable about adult autism and covered by my insurance. I’m in my first real year of a return to blogging. I’m in the second successful month of my first-ever experience taking medication for anxiety. I’m in my nth year of not feeling like much more than a failure and a fuckup. Like everyone else, I’m in whatever week this is of a global pandemic.

Current 📚: I’ve started reading Cities: The First 6,000 Years by Monica L. Smith; I’m still reading The Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante; and I’ve finished reading The Economists’ Hour by Binyamin Appelbaum. I’ve completed fifteen titles so far this year, with eight waiting in my queue.

This week on 📺 I’m watching Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, 9-1-1, Dispatches from Elsewhere, Briarpatch, The Masked Singer, Motherland: Fort Salem, The Magicians, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Better Things. I’ve slowed down watching season five of The Blacklist and can’t seem to get back into Diablero even though I enjoy it. I’ve started in on High Fidelity and when that’s done will start in on Devs.

What is a “now page”?

Most websites have a link that says “about”. Most websites have a link that says “contact”. So a website with a link that says “now” goes to a page that tells you what this person is focused on at this point in their life. — Derek Sivers
