Well, hi there! Happy Wednesday to ya! 😀
I’m currently sitting here in my favourite booth in ‘Bux with an empty grande cup beside me, meaning that I’m: a) hyper, and b) most likely going to have to pee soon. Sorry if that’s a little TMI, but… see ‘A’.
So heyyyyy! It’s June. And June is kicking my butt so far. Remember how I said I was stoked about the new month starting on a Monday? I take that back. A new month starting on a Monday has given me an extended case of The Mondays, which I can only hope won’t last for the next 27 days. Actually, that’s not even entirely true… but I needed some kind of intro for this Currently post, and that’s the first place my mind went.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at life as I currently know it… in June.
Current book: Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. After reading (and loving) The Lies of Locke Lamora, of course I had to go on and read the next book in the series. Loving this one just as much… especially because it legit makes me laugh out loud. The banter. The wit. The humour. Love, love, love.
Current music: Retribution by Blue Stahli. In fact, I’m listening to it a we speak. Or as I write. Whatever.
Current [non]-guilty pleasure: Video gaming. 7 months. I went 7 months without playing video games (aside from FarmVille, which doesn’t count), which is a freaking record for me. Video games have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, but I figured it was time to “grow up” and focus all my efforts on more productive things like work and what have you. Worst.idea.ever.
Current nail colour: NONE. Ugh. I broke two gorgeously long nails the other day, and I’m very much still pouting about it.
Current drink: Coffee. Hot coffee, more specifically. I know it probably makes more sense to stick to cold drinks when the temperature starts to go up, but to be completely honest… I’m not the biggest fan of iced coffee. I like my coffee hot. And I like it even better when it cools down to room temperature.
Current food: These cookie dough protein granola bars. I’ve made three batches of these babies since posting the recipe a couple of weeks ago (with the latest batch being yesterday morning at 5 AM), so I think it’s safe to say that I’ve been eating a lot of them.
Current obsession: My chocolate fudge bites. I know, I know. I’m not trying to toot my own horn on the recipe front, but you asked about obsessions, so I answered. Like the bars above (^^), I’m on something like batch #4 with these guys as well. It might be time to start snacking on other things soon. Maybe.
Current wish: More stable sleep. Or maybe just more sleep in general. I either sleep like a rock because I’m exhausted, or I toss and turn all night because I have too much on my mind. The hot nights don’t help much either.
Current need: To stop slouching. I don’t really have the best posture, which is made worse by the fact that I spend a decent amount of time sitting. I keep Post-Its around my computer to remind me to sit up straight, but I still catch myself slouching more often than not. Work in progress.
Current bane of my existence: Seasonal allergies. All things blooming + crazy winds + open windows = one miserably congested Amanda. Go away, Spring. You drunk.
Current indulgence: Teddy Grahams! Nothing like indulging in a childhood favourite to take you back to the good old days. Now excuse me while I bust out the My Little Ponies and My Littlest Pet Shop. Except I have no idea what happened to my old ones, and the new ones kind of creep me out. What’s with the huge eyes and huge heads?!
Current procrastination: Getting a tan. Or creating a tan, I should say, since mine usually comes from a bottle as opposed to the sun. I keep meaning to un-pastify myself, but yeah… it’s still on the to-do list.
Current confession: I accidentally saw a preview for a horror movie the other day, and I couldn’t sleep [well] for two days after that. Feel free to point and laugh. I’m a wimp and I know it.
Current blessing: Good friends on bad days.
Current excitement: Feeling sore… which I realize sounds a little twisted, but I’m talking about the dull muscle ache that comes after a little bit of strength training. I’ve been neglecting strength training for longer than I care to admit, and it feels awesome to slowly be getting back into it… DOMS and all
Current mood: Twitchy. Is that a mood? Because that’s how I’m feeling… and I think that’s a good sign that I’ve been sitting for too long and it might be time to hit up the gym in a little while here.
Current link: 11 Period Emojis That Need To Exist. Ladies… you know what’s up. #9 almost made me snort coffee out my nose.
Alright, friendly faces — I’m outta here. Have yourselves an awesome day!
Anyone else dealing with pesky seasonal allergies?
