Show Notes for Season 1, Episode 7: Life Is What Happens


Alethea wishes all a Happy Lunar New Year, and talks about using planning and lists to create cleaning routines and conquer your most-procrastinated tasks.


Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts and I might read it on the show!

Lunar New Year

CNN has usually a pretty good list of info about how people celebrate Lunar New Year. I learn something new from the Do's and Don'ts List every year. Here's another one from their Travel department.

There's another really great resource here: Asia for Educators (Columbia University).

And another list from a tour company in China: China Highlights

I'm Filipino and we have our own traditions. My fave LNY food from home is tikoy, a glutinous rice cake. I've never made it but I might take a stab at a Tikoy recipe during my lunch break today!

Help out some stray cats! 

Follow Esmeralda @TheTNRGirl on Instagram to learn more about Trap-Neuter-Return and humane ways to help the feral cat community in Los Angeles and beyond.

Signed Bridgerton Books is Julia Quinn's home bookstore and you can order signed copies of her books there! 
Hmm, I'm going to need to make some space for those... luckily it will be a bit of a wait as most of the titles are backordered.

Getting Things Done

Shop for the book here on my page, borrow it from your local public library (book, audio, or ebook!), and find out more on David Allen's official site Also, if you just look it up you'll find tons of resources other people have made.

Passion Planner

or just go to

Rifle Paper Co.

Listen, it's just really pretty.

Take a before photo of your space -- make sure there's nothing of a private nature, like your home address or the like, or any humans in the photo who have not/are unable to consent to being included in the image. 

Clean up, then take an after photo. You can take video too, and share multiples of each, since Instagram allows up to 10 photos or videos in a multi-media post. 

You can tell us whatever you want in the captions, but make sure you put the hashtag #cleanyourroompodcastchallenge in there somewhere! We might choose to share/repost some posts and stories as well if your profile is public.
