Inspired by Derek Sivers’ now page.

Last updated: December 6, 2023 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Working on: Just launched thefitlifeja.com and ruthchisholm.com for two very special clients. Finishing up another before the holiday break and hoping to give this site some updates as well, so I can be fully prepared for diving back into work full time in January.

Reading: In the middle of My Life So Far by Jane Fonda (audiobook). Enjoying it so far. Still planning to read Justice Is Coming by Cenk Uygur when I’m done.

Watching: Rewatched White Collar – such a great show! Started Only Murders In The Building S3 but was so bored two episodes in, I don’t think I’ll continue. Trying to focus on movies this month – particularly Spirited and Last Holiday (which I hear are both good) and a Last Christmas rewatch because Emilia Clarke is my fav and she is at her cutest in this movie.

Obsessed with: Christmas! I am feeling particularly cheery this season. My Xmas playlist on repeat and my decor has arrived. I’ll be putting them up this weekend and I can’t wait!

Reflecting on: World War II and the events leading up to it and how similar they are to things that are happening now. More than a little scared about this.

Location: Montego Bay, Jamaica

Working on: Finishing up sites for 3 clients this month and working on some SEO updates for another.

Reading: About to start My Life So Far by Jane Fonda (audiobook), then Justice Is Coming by Cenk Uygur. (Didn’t get much reading done in October.)

Watching: Finishing my Lost rewatch (so much of this show I did not remember). I also want to watch Suicide Squad, Suicide Squad 2 and Birds of Prey this month – more so for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn than anything else.

Obsessed with: Choosing Christmas decor for my home. It’s my first time decorating for Christmas and I want to keep it simple but embrace the cozy winter vibe. My mind will not rest until I’ve chosen the times and they’re shipped.

Reflecting on: Visiting Las Vegas for the first time and seeing Trevor Noah live in New York last month. October 2023 belongs in the life highlight reel for sure!

Working on: Populating Notion’s Template Gallery! (Web design projects on long-term pause, but still maintaining some client websites I previously built.)

Reading: Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig. Recently finished The Guest List by Lucy Foley (fun!)

Watching: Rewatching The Newsroom, yet again. Recently binged The Circle Season 5 (love who won!) and Kaleidoscope (meh, felt like a Money Heist wannabe). Patiently waiting for Succession Season 4!

Obsessed with: Colouring on my iPad. I’ve been working with color-by-number PDF pages in GoodNotes, but I’m gonna run out of those soon, so thinking of transitioning to a coloring app like Pigment or Calmeleon.
