Right Now

by Stacey

I write these Right Now posts every so often and after taking a long blog break, it seemed like just the right time to write another. That and the fact that Rudri of Being Rudri wrote a similar post last week and I was inspired. Thanks Rudri for the motivation to get back to writing!

Right Now I Am…

Traveling to… Or more aptly from. We just returned from Nantucket, our most happy place. We travel there with dear college friends and we had, as usual, the most wonderful time.

I think the highlight of the trip was our boat ride to a deserted island covered in seals.

Reading… I read The Luckiest Girl Alive while we were gone and I was that annoying person on the beach who kept saying, “What!?” “No?!” “Are you kidding me!?” The book was slow to start but it certainly made up for that about half way through. After I finished I couldn’t figure out what to read next and my friend Mindy suggested I go old-school to Stephen King’s IT. I have never read his older work and all I can say is wow. I always knew King was an amazing story teller but his work really is remarkable.

Watching… I watch Netflix to keep me on the treadmill for longer than three minutes. Top of the Lake was a featured show that I had never heard of but decided to try. It is a mystery that is definitely keeping my attention.

topListening to… Podcasts. I just discovered the New York Public Library’s podcasts with some of my favorite authors like Cheryl Strayed, Elizabeth Gilbert and Ann Patchett.

Eating… Summer is my favorite food season. Last night we had the first corn of the summer and it was perfect. We’ve also been having a lot of watermelon and tomatoes and mozzarella.

Drinking… Ice coffee. I am still trying to cut back on sugar which is putting a bit of a damper on my ice coffee obsession. Ice coffee really is one of my favorite things to drink but I don’t like it very much at all without an obscene amount of sugar. And yes- I have tried putting agave in it and no, it’s not the same.

Ok.. how about you? What’s happening in your world’s  Right Now?

    I just discovered the NYC library podcasts, too! I’ve enjoyed some of the old episodes. Didn’t love the Sloane Crosley and Joan Didion one. . .   I’m reading Attachments by Rainbow Rowell– LOVING it! And watching Friday Night Lights. REALLY loving it! I might do one one of these right now posts. Hmm . . .

      The Joan Didion podcast was on my list- maybe I will choose another instead. And I loved Friday Night Lights! And if you liked that, you should watch Bloodlines next if you haven’t seen it!

    Your Nantucket vacation looks amazing!! So glad you had fun. I remember reading It in 9th grade and it was terrifying. Enjoy your summer!! 

  4. Thanks for the shout out, Stacey. Loved your seal pic and can’t wait to check out Luckiest Girl Alive. I am hooked on the podcast On Being with Krista Tippet. Happy Summer!

    I didn’t know about the NYC PodCasts. How do you get them – do you have to “check them out?” I’m reading The Precious Ones and t’s really good.
