And I’m in LOVE. ❤ ❤ ❤
But not in the way you think I mean. I’m in love with my life, and I want to tell you about a few things that are making me happy right now because I’m all about spreading love and happiness. ❤
MY FAVORITE GLUTEN FREE CRACKERS:
They’re the Sea Salt Brown Rice Crackers by Food Should Taste Good, but a better name might be Crack in a Box.
The government should require a warning label for these things.
Monica loves them so much, she snuggles with the box.
They used to carry them at Costco, and I got ADDICTED. They stopped stocking them last year, and I nearly had to go to therapy.
I recently found them at the high end market on my street for 6x the price I paid at Costco. I only let myself buy them as a special treat because I’m not trying to be homeless because I’m addicted to amaranth and rice crackers.
Today felt like the right day to splurge, so I bought a box.
You probably should too, but please don’t blame me if you end up living in your car because of your addiction.
WALKING THE DOG WHILE LISTENING TO SCREENWRITING PODCASTS:
I’m ALL about maximizing efficiency, so I get excited when I can do two things at once. Yesterday, I found a way to do THREE things at once, which was so fabulous it was almost like having an orgasm.
See, I figured out how to work out, tire out my enormous dog, AND solve some script problems all at once.
Walking the dog while listening to screenwriting podcasts.
I decided to make it an extra relaxing time for us, so we even lay in the park for a while as I listened to smart and famey writers talk about writing.
Aren’t you glad I showed you my armpit?
Nature + Learning = ❤
Plus a humming bird joined us for a while.
It was awesome.
That’s not dirt. It’s a bad photo of a little bird. I promise.
Time with my dog + birds + learning = ❤ ❤ ❤

And last but not least….
WRITING TO YOUTUBE MIX TAPES:
I started doing it this week, and it’s uh-mazing. Most of the mix tapes run about an hour, so you get uninterrupted beats without having to deal with ads.
I put one of my favorites below. This one happens to be all Kygo tracks, but I’m not mad about it. It includes remixes of Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire,” Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” and Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.”
Plus Owly, the genius who created it, even lists the tracks on the playlist so you don’t have to interrupt your writing flow to shazaam a song when you like it.
OK, I’m off to implement some of the screenwriting tips from yesterday before going to dinner with my adorable aunt and cousin.
We’re going to listen to country music while eating our favorite burritos.
It’s going to be beyond.
