  1. Playing with Finch, a self-care app where you can complete goals/reflections/breathing exercises/etc in order to help a little bird grow. It’s cute; I don’t know if I’ll stick with it, but it’s nice to see this kind of thing out there. My invite code is 99ADS57EQG if you want to try it and help me get rainbow stones to get my finch a cute lil winter sweater…
  2. Finally starting to read The Untold Story by Genevieve Cogman, and it’s exactly the kind of book I wanted to tuck into right now.
  3. The UK are accelerating access for booster vaccines, so I will either be getting mine at a walk-in this weekend or getting it via an appointment on the 23rd.
