What I'm Listening To: 

Lana Del Rey's "When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing" on repeat (oh so relevant). My go-tos, namely Gaga, Florence + the Machine, and Spice Girls. A LOT of Loreena McKennitt. And a little diddy called "Femme on Femme" by the incredible Gaymous.

What I'm Watching: 

Leah Remini's Scientology show, The Dead Files, and any political comedy clips that can get me to laugh-cry through another day of this dystopian "presidency."

What I'm Reading: 

Many Moons workbook. Gods of the Blood: The Pagan Revival and White Separatism by Mattias Gardell. Telling myself I'm going to finally dig into Hannah Arendt's The Origins of Totalitarianism. You know, your typical beach reading.
