New Music

Been listening to a lot of Helen Jane Long's songs lately.

Her piano and orchestral music is very relaxing yet powerful and thought-provoking. Here are a few songs I recommend starting with:

Perspective, Outside, Flowers.

Latest Reads

The Prosperity Bible -- Contains 5359 pages of wisdom from Napoleon Hill, P. T. Barnum, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Fillmore, Wallace D. Wattles, Florence Scovel Shinn, Ernest Holmes, and others for less than a dollar. I'm still slowly working through this tome, but highly recommend it.

The Almanack of Naval Ravikant -- This was one of the best books I've read in a while. Almost every page contains nuggets of wisdom that you can apply to your life.

The Craft of Scene Writing -- This masquerades itself as a book about scene writing, but it can be applied to other types of writing and other creative ventures.

Latest Experiments

Been doing higher-rep (15 reps X 5 sets) and lower-weight exercises to gain more muscle. Also been waking up really sore and tired after these workouts though, so may need to cut down the reps or weight.

Latest Thoughts

Thinking about moving someplace warmer or sunnier than Wisconsin for the winter.
