New Year’s Resolution Update – January

Stuck to my resolution pretty well for the first month. I don’t miss The Bachelor or Downton Abbey as much as I thought I would. I have plenty of books to read. I can still watch most episodes of 30 Rock, which is what’s really important. Here’s a comprehensive list of media I mindfully consumed in January:

  1. Both seasons of Transparent, created and produced by Jill Soloway
  2. Room, written and produced by author Emma Donohue
  3. Carol, directed by Todd Haynes and written by Phyllis Nagy
  4. The Danish Girl, written by Lucinda Coxon and produced by Liza Chasin
  5. Sharp Objects, written by Gillian Flynn
  6. The first two episodes (SORRY, I KNOW) of Making a Murderer, written and directed by Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi
  7. The first episode of Chelsea Does, created and produced by Chelsea Handler

Currently reading The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood. I’m noticing that most of the entertainment media I’ve consumed is created and/or produced by women, and I’d like to make a conscious effort to focus more on LGBT writers and writers of color moving forward.

One thought on “New Year’s Resolution Update – January

  1. Good to hear from you again. I wondered how your resolution was working out. We just more or less live day to day without resolutions. Last Monday Marv bent to turn off the night light in the hall and his right knee popped. I had to get him a walker from the basement so he could get around. He had an xray on Tuesday that showed fluid so he is seeing the doctor tomorrow.

    Hilary has been substitute teaching in Kewanee while waiting to hear from a job application. Austin will graduate in May with a degree in nursing so applied for a job at the hospital in Geneseo.

    Ellyn chose to stay with the night job and packed clothes so she could stay at the hospital if the storm closed things in Omaha. No news is good news so I assume she is fine.

    Three of our eight bridge players are snow birds so five of us had lunch at Cerno’s this noon to keep in touch. We probably won’t be playing together until March.

    Take care. Blessings and Love, Lola
