A Quick Update Post: What I’m Currently Doing

It was a whirlwind of a weekend and I didn’t have a chance to prewrite anything for Friday or today so here’s what I’m currently up to, just to give y’all a little update!!

Reading… Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl. Among other things, that is. I just finished rereading my favorite book of all time so expect a post on that soon. I’m also slowly but surely working my way through my backlist of ARCs from Netgalley because I was staying on top of things until last month when I went downhill mentally.

Listening… My brothers and their friend screaming outside in the pool. And with my headphones in I’m actually listening to some old school Sleeping With Sirens.

Writing… This is actually really exciting. I have decided to embark on a crazy project that I’m hoping will go up in October. I’m feeling very inspired after a conversation that I had with my grandparents yesterday and I can’t wait to see what I can do. I won’t be sharing too much but I will tell you it involves short stories and spookiness.

Feeling… NERVOUS AS HECK. Classes start on Thursday. And the syllabi just went live and I have no idea how this is going to go. My financial aid is being difficult because I had to provide a ton of verification documents that felt incredibly pointless!!

Drinking… A strawberry banana smoothie from Caribou that I got after my eyebrow appointment this morning. Also thinking of making tea and taking my computer outside to work on some blog posts since I don’t have work today and the weather is gorgeous.

Eating… Does drinking a smoothie count as eating something? I really should make myself lunch soon. I might just eat some snacks instead.

Watching… 24 hour readathon vlogs. I’m sort of addicted to watching reading vlogs as of late? Really makes me want to make them but my house is so loud that it’s so hard to film here. I’ve tried to make a reading vlog in the past but I always get discouraged in the end and scrap the whole project. It would be fun to expand my platform to Youtube and I know it’s not a numbers game but I feel like no one would watch my videos. Who knows. Now I’m off topic so I’ll move on.

Hoping… That the cute boy messages me back. And also that my face does not stay red for too much longer. I got my eyebrows waxed for the first time ever this morning and while I didn’t react as badly as I thought I would, I am still very red.

Wanting… Cold weather and fuzzy socks. The weather yesterday was so pleasant that it made me so hopeful for fall. Time is going far too quickly for me but I’m very much looking forward to cooler days.

Thankful for… The great outdoors, summer tradition, cats, and sunshine.

Not my typical type of post as of late. But I wanted to just put up something quick and fun. Posts should hopefully be regular from here on out unless school gets to me. But I’m going to try and be better than I have in the past with my horrible procrastination habits.

I have a lot of fun stuff in mind for upcoming posts and I can’t wait for October too with my giant plans.

I hope you all had a nice weekend and that your week is starting off well. Happy Monday!

Currently…

Reading… My religion textbook. Attempting to work ahead because I have a few very busy weeks ahead of me before I get a break for spring break.

Listening… THE HAMILTON SOUNDTRACK. It’s amazing, just take my word for it, you won’t regret it. A musical about Alexander Hamilton, I may be a history geek but I think anyone could get to love the music, it’s so catchy!

Feeling… Tired yet wide awake. I’m writing this on Friday night in order to get some posts prepared so I can get back into the swing of blogging and I’ve had so much caffeine today but my soul is tired. I need some time to relax and not think about anything but that is a long ways off.

Drinking… Water. I’ve made it a goal of mine starting this week that I want to drink at least 64 oz. of water every single day. So far I’ve done it every day but today I fell behind. I still have another 32 ounces to go and it’s currently almost 8 pm. I’ll get it done, though, even if I have to chug a bunch of water before I go to sleep.

Eating… Not eating anything, but I’m tempted to make myself a bag of popcorn to snack on while I blog and do homework.

Watching… When I have a spare 20 minutes (hahahaha what a joke) I’ve been watching Fuller House. 

Thankful for… Technology and the ability to keep in touch with my best friend, boyfriend, and family even though I’m hundreds of miles away from them.

There’s a  little look into my life at the moment. Busy with school and consumed with coffee and papers and work. Trying to put in the effort to be more mindful. Drinking more water, taking vitamins every day, sleeping at least eight hours a night, and journaling on a regular basis.

I hope you all have a great day, I’ll talk to you next time.
