I currently have almost zero conception of what day of the week it actually is.
Tuesday felt like Monday; I don’t even know what the heck happened to Wednesday; and today feels like a Saturday. The only thing I’m actually sure of is that it’s September. Wait… it is September, right? Okay, yeah — it is. And because it’s the beginning of a new month, and I like to keep a record of what’s currently going on in my life so I can look back and laugh at myself one day, that’s exactly what today’s post is all about — a nice little survey of life as I currently know it.
I hope you guys have an awesome Friday (err… it is Friday, yes? yes), and I’ll see ya on Sunday for some Link Love!
. – . – . – .
Current book: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. After months and months of waiting, I can finally find out how one of my favourite series ends… and all I can say is that it better end the way I want it to, or a lot of unpleasant words will be uttered. I’ll keep you updated!
Current music: I Need Your Love by Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding; also known as the song that Amanda dances around to in her apartment, hoping that no one is watching her make a fool out of herself 😉
Current guilty pleasure: Eating my meals straight from the pot. You guys… it’s finally reached that point and I started doing what I never thought I would — not bothering to plate my meals and just eating them straight from the pot. Not every time, mind you, but it’s definitely become a more regular thing. Not good! But who wants to wash extra dishes?!?
Current nail colour: I really wasn’t kidding when I told you guys that I fell in love with Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails nail strengthener… And apparently my nails share my sentiments because they’ve never looked better! Recycled pic because they look exactly the same and it’s incredibly awkward to try and take a picture of your own hand with a massive DSLR.
Current drink: Starbucks Vanilla K-cups. I’ve made the switch from hitting up Starbucks in the morning to going later in the afternoon when the cabin fever really starts to set in, which means I’ve had to start making my coffee at home. I came across a box of these in Safeway a while back and decided to try them out.
Current food: I haven’t busted into my stash quite yet, but it’s only a matter of time before I’ll be eating ALL things pumpkin…
Current obsession: Frozen mangoes. This stuff is ridiculous. I originally bought it to toss into smoothies, but it hasn’t made it into a single one so far because I just can’t stop eating it straight from the bag. I can’t help it! It’s so sweet and creamy — basically impossible to resist.
Current wish: That I had the power of teleportation. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — that would definitely be my super power of choice. Oh, the places [I’d] go… 😉
Current need: The motivation to attack the e-mails that have been piling up in my inbox instead of sweeping them under the rug and trying to pretend they don’t exist 😆 Oh, and a few cups of really strong coffee wouldn’t hurt either. If I owe you an e-mail, I’m sorry! I’m getting there.
Current triumph: Finally getting that memory card for my camera that I’ve been needing since… oh… April 😉 It only took me 5 months, but now I can get all sorts of snap-happy again. Woot!
Current bane of my existence: I had an answer to this question at some point, but then I forgot what it was. It must not have been that big of a bane… I mean, Spike had an accident on the floor this morning (read: I tipped over his pot and some water leaked out), but that hardly counts as bane-worthy material…
Current indulgence: Late night drives. I don’t talk about this too much on the blog, but cars and speed are the loves of my life. I spent the majority of my late teens and early twenties either driving a car, tuning a car, or racing a car, and there’s seriously nothing in life that relaxes me more than a late night cruise in the summer with the windows rolled down and the music going. Hands down the best form of therapy there is.
Current procrastination: Cleaning the keyboard on my laptop. I eat most of my meals by my computer, and you can definitely tell 😳 The R, T, Y, U, F, G, H, and J area is particularly bad. Oh geez. I never took a good look at it, but it really is! Okay, that’s just gross… going to grab some Q-tips. Excuse me.
Current blessing: I’m going to have to repeat last month’s answer and say that I feel incredibly blessed to have a job that I love. Sometimes I have a hard time answering people when they ask me what it is that I do for work because it honestly doesn’t feel like that. I wake up every morning just itching to get started, which is what I always wanted from a career. Really couldn’t have asked for more.
Current excitement: I may have already mentioned that I’m ridiculously excited over the fact that it’s finally fall? Heck, it’s not even technically fall yet, but I’m still saying that it is because I’m kind of done with the heat and high-energy of summer — too exhausting. Give me my cool and calm fall days! And baggy sweaters, boots, scarves, etc., etc…
Current mood: Tired. It’s late Thursday night and I should be sleeping. Did that sentence even make sense? Let’s hope so.
Current link: All your fabulous Thinking Out Loud posts! I always do my best to read and comment on every post that links up because I feel like it’s the least I can do if you take the time to contribute! Well, that and I love the random thoughts — you guys are fabulous.
Your turn! Give me your current:
1) … food.
2) … guilty pleasure.
3) … procrastination.
4) … blessing.
5) … mood.

I think I’d rather enjoy watching you bee bop all over your apartment. You know I’m a huge fan of dance parties, especially as a source of relaxation therapy. I’ll have to try night driving next. 🙂
I eat meals out of the pot, pan or Tupperware on occasion. I feel like I’m being green and saving on energy. Water conservation baby. It’s big on the west coast. We’re just doing our part for the environment.
Stop talking about fall and pumpkins. Alright fine, carry on. I’m just going to pretend it doesn’t exist.

OMG frozen mangoes are the BEST! I really wish I could have some now.
Favorite food: cottage cheese! There’s no Greek yogurt in the dining halls, but cottage cheese is very quickly becoming a huge favorite of mine.
Guilty pleasure/procrastination: reading blogs when I could be studying 😉
Blessing: wonderful new friends, beautiful weather, and a great education.
I know this sounds weird, but I sort of miss you! I miss reading and commenting on every single one of your posts!
