Today is the first day of fall and even though nature is dying, I am coming out of my summer hibernation and am about to be the most alive I am all year long! Here’s a quick reflection on my life as we enter a new season of this wild ride that is 2020. I filled this in throughout the day so “currently” is referring to… today in general haha.
Reading… I just started Sadie by Courtney Summers. I’ve heard good things about the book and the audiobook is a full ensemble (which are always awesome). The titular character is played by Rebecca Soler, who has done SO many of the audiobooks that I’ve enjoyed most so that’s what really sold me. I am 12 books away from meeting my Goodreads goal for the year!
Playing… around with ideas for my phone icons. I just updated my iOS and have been really into looking at how other people are organizing their apps and using widgets.
Watching… the OG Digimon dub aka partaking in the ultimate form of self care.
Trying… to rationalize a mug purchase at Anthropologie (spoiler: it was on sale so I definitely did).
Cooking… Classy Chicken tomorrow.
Eating… at a cool pizza place #dineoutsidevancouver .
Drinking… peppermint tea out of aforementioned Anthropologie mug.
Calling… my parents tomorrow probably.
Texting… my best friend as we also carry on a separate conversation on Snapchat. We’ve been having multiple streams of simultaneous conversation going for like… 15 years?
Pinning… nail art, midi skirt outfit inspo, and home decor. I’m playing around with the idea of doing a vinyl quote (like this) over the door but have not committed. I also am toying with the idea of doing some kind of decal on the side of my bathtub but this is still in the early pondering stage.
Tweeting… just… random things?
Going… to paint my nails tomorrow because I totally meant to last night but washed my hair instead and I don’t really feel like it today haha.
Loving… my new planner! I got THIS ONE.
Hating… the on-hold feeling of the world, while still having to work and do the day-to-day monotonous stuff.
Discovering… Pillbury Halloween sugar cookies are now “safe to eat raw” but… this takes away the sense of danger? The thrill of staring salmonella right in the face and yelling HA! Is it… even worth it?
Thinking… about future creative projects.
Feeling… ready for cooler weather.
Hoping (for)… some sort of redemption for 2020.
Listening (to)… Miley Cyrus. Something I never thought I would do, but it’s 2020 and anything can happen?
Celebrating… my brother’s birthday this weekend.
Smelling… THIS candle.
Thanking… those who are supportive of me no matter what!
Considering… buying new pencil crayons JUST BECAUSE I NEED A NAVY. Such an annoying and minor problem but what can you do… sometimes royal blue just doesn’t cut it.
Starting… to upload my phone photos on a regular basis. Before this week I hadn’t done so since December 2018 and there were over 3000 photos/ videos on there. Big yikes, I know.
Finishing… this blog post!
Thank you for reading this post and I hope you have a great day!
