I got this neat “currently” post idea from Lauren’s blog Oatmeal After Spinning.
Current books: Right now I’m reading both Storm of Swords (the third Game of Thrones book) by R. R. Martin and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia. I don’t usually read more than one book at a time, but recently I’ve been doing just that. I find the Game of Thrones saga to be really intense, so I need to break it up with something less thought-intensive every once in a while.
Current music: I’m in love with Rihanna’s new single Stay.
Current guilty pleasure: The Bachelor. I’m so embarrassed that I watch this show, but seriously… it’s so good.
Current nail color: Hot pink! Not sure of the actual name. I started doing acrylic a few months ago and I really wish I’d started sooner. I love having long, beautiful nails 24/7.
Current drink: Just plain old water for me right now.
Current food: I just finished a midnight snack of mashed sweet potato. It’s hard to believe something so healthy for you can taste so much like dessert
Current favorite show: Besides The Bachelor, I’m loving tons of shows right now: Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Revenge, Pretty Little Liars, and Switched at Birth — to name a few.
Current wish list: There’s a lot of stuff for the house that I’d really like to have, but I’m trying to be patient. Repairing and decorating an old house doesn’t happen in a day… this is going to take years.
Current needs: SLEEP! I don’t know why, but I just can’t seem to get enough sleep lately, ugh.
Current triumphs: Getting some more unpacking done! Unpacking was kind of stalled for a little while there, since we were really busy and focusing on some other important things that needed to get done, like building the master bedroom closet. But this weekend we were able to take a decent crack at it, and we’re slowly starting to be able to see the porch floor again!
Current bane of my existence: Snoring boyfriends!!
Current celebrity crush: After seeing Identity Thief with my mom recently, I totally have a girl-crush on Melissa McCarthy. She is awesome.
Current indulgence: For the past two months, my mom and I have been going out for sushi every week. I think we’re addicted…
Current blessing: My amazing boyfriend who has been helping me so much with the new house. Obviously he’s living here too, so it’s also his house… but I still appreciate the tons of effort that he’s put into this place already.
Current outfit: Just an old football t-shirt of Brent’s. It’s bedtime!
Current excitement: I think that buying the house was enough excitement to last a long, long time. I’m perfectly fine with just being calm right now!
Current mood: I don’t know if there’s a word for it, but for the past couple of days I’ve just felt like I have tons of stuff to do and there’s never enough time to finish everything no matter how long I do stuff. It’s getting really frustrating because it’s hard to feel productive when there’s still so many to-dos on the list.
