It feels like it has been awhile since we have had a proper catch up. Sometimes I feel a little bogged down constantly trying to pump out great posts. I prefer to write about things that are inspiring or thought-provoking, rather than just fluff about me. But today we need a bit of fluff. I think since it is Friday we need a little break from the heavy, deep topics. So I’m gonna fill you in on what is new in my world…
Current book recommendation: Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist.
I’ve found the only way to make the semester more bearable when my classes are so dull is to fill up my spare time devouring books. I’ve read so many amazing books recently that it was hard to pick just one to recommend.
But if you are a lover of words, imagery and finding the beauty in everyday things then you will LOVE this book.
Current favourite song: Another man’s shoes- Drew Holcomb.
Don’t you love it when you come across a new artist that you just instantly can’t get enough of? I love this song because it’s super catchy but it also has a valuable lesson…you don’t know what someone else is going through until you walk a mile in their shoes. Don’t be too quick to judge!
Current favourite food: These no-bake oatmeal peanut butter bites.
You seriously NEED to try these. Roasted peanuts are life.
Current favourite workout: This SUP power yoga workout.
Before trying this I thought yoga was all zen and peacefulness…but after this workout I was a sweaty mess. Power yoga is hard guys!
Current need: To go grocery shopping.
This used to be my favourite thing ever when I lived at home. But that was because Mum and I would grab a coffee and chat beforehand and then take our time perusing the shelves.
Now it’s just a chore because I’m usually in a rush, lacking caffeine and flustered trying to decide if I need a 75 watt lightbulb or a 100 watt lightbulb. (FYI: I got the 100 and instantly regretted it because it’s so bright in my room now I could practically start tanning.)
Current craving: Cinnamon rolls.
How good do these look?…
Current excitement: SPRING IS HERE!
The days are getting warmer and longer finally. I can’t wait to not have to carry three extra jumpers and a scarf with me everyday.
Current procrastination: Studying for my test.
Anyone who thinks molecular biology and genetics are interesting have never studied molecular biology and genetics. It’s so boring that I think my succulent may have died while listening to the lecture recordings.
Currently laughing at: This…
Crying with laughter because is that not the most accurate thing ever?
Current confession: I talk out aloud to myself.
If you know me well, then this is old news to you.
But I realized this week that I actually have a problem. Because it has reached the point where I ask myself a question and then answer it. For a long time I actually thought everyone did this until my parents gently told me otherwise.
Currently thankful for: Sunsets and friendship.
On Saturday night my cousin and I hiked up a mountain (it’s really just a big hill) to watch the sunset. We laughed so much trying to eat our dinner as the wind whipped it off our forks!
So that is what’s new with me. How about you?
Now tell me…
What are you up to this weekend?
