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 The Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante; I’m still reading The Economists’ Hour by Binyamin Appelbaum; and I’ve finished reading Future Tense Fiction edited by the editors of Future Tense (its issues at OverDrive finally having gotten resolved so my Kobo borrow properly downloaded). I’ve completed fourteen titles so far this year, with nine 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
