January is coming to an end already. And then it’s time for the worst month of the year! At least for New England. There’s just something about the winter in February that just…sucks.
In continuing with my theme of giving things I can look forward to each month, February will be finishing my tattoo! I’ll be getting the color and shading done and I’m so stoked to see what the artist has planned.
Then in March (fingers crossed), I’m going to Germany to visit my brother. I haven’t seen him in three-ish years. If any of the European Bitchery has suggestions, I’ll be there for two weeks and will have plenty of time to bop around to other places.
Enough about me, let’s get into it!
I love listening to stuff when I go to sleep. Normally, it’s Twitch streams, but I do love a sleep-focused podcast. (Shoutout to Sleep with Me). I recently discovered this one: Sleepy Bookshelf, which has a lovely narrator read classics to you as you fall asleep. They’re on Anne of Green Gables now.
Look at this adorable interaction between author Kate DiCamillo and a young reader:

Sarah: I subscribed to and supported the 28 Days of Black History email series last year and it was powerfully good. Each email features a different artifact with an explanation of the history attached to it. It’s like having a museum exhibit delivered daily to my inbox. I looked forward to reading each one in the evening. I loved it and I’m so excited it’s back for 2022.
I love discovering new artists on social media and I was immediately taken with these bird-themed plague doctors. Someone make a tabletop game campaign or something because there is some major world building going on here.

This video may be of interest to some of you and yes, I did immediately think of DiscoDollyDeb and her dark romance recommendations!
Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!
