I’m hoping, in a nervous-to-write-a-proper-blog-post sort of way, that this will give you a little bit of insight into the kind of sloth I am. I’m not sure I did a very good job.

(also, I cheated… this was actually two lists – what a way to start a blog! On cheating and lies!)

Essentially, you will find a lot of posts on this blog about self-care that include things from the top list: Listening to true crime podcasts, exercising, reading great books, and spending time with your pets.
You will not find a lot of posts suggesting that you go to loud crowded places, try to stroke an over-enthusiastic dog and eat some coconut.

And that’s me!
