I’m a few months behind with this one, but this survey popped up on a few blogs I read and I finally felt like joining in. I’m always a little behind with trends anyway, so this should be no different 🙂
Current Book(s): I just finished The Senator’s Wife last night. It wasn’t an amazing book, but I breezed through it this week.
I’m still in the middle of Slow Death by Rubber Duck. Since it’s more scientific, it’s definitely a type of book to read a few pages at a time instead of huge chunks in one sitting. But I still find it interesting and informative.
The book I’ll crack open tonight was recommended by (and currently being bored from) one of my graduate assistants: This Much I Know is True.
One of her tasks was to let me borrow some of her favorite books and this one came highly recommended. Our town’s book resale/trade-in shop is reopening tomorrow. I never thought that would make me as excited as I am!
Current Music: Aside from my running playlist, I’ve been digging my No Doubt & Maroon 5 Pandora stations. Sometimes when I’m getting ready for work I’ll play my Dixie Chicks station. Funny how certain locations change my music mood…
Current Guilty Pleasure: http://whatshouldwecallstudentaffairs.tumblr.com/ I can’t look at these and not giggle.
Current Nail Color: Natural. I never paint my nails. I feel like mine are oddly shaped and I feel so awkward when they are painted. Even if I would normally paint them, they wouldn’t be at present. One fingernail is recovering from being chopped off while I was cubing sweet potatoes. My toenails, however, are painted with my favorite: Conquistadorable. Love that 🙂
Current Drink: Water, coffee, Celestial Seasoning’s Blueberry Tea, or Panera’s Acai Berry Tea (so yum!)
Current Food: Almond butter, apple butter, and Kind bars. Can’t stop craving all 3.
Current Favorite Show: The West Wing. I just started the final season. A big part of me doesn’t want it to end, but I’m dying to see how it plays out. I’m so obsessed with this show I feel like these characters are real.
Current Wishlist: Choco Peanut Butter Brownie Blizzard from Dairy Queen.
Obviously, since I’m dairy-free this will need to be consumed during a dairy-cheat-day and preferably on a long run day. I know, you were expecting me to say “a new car” or “a Kindle”, weren’t you? My life revolves around food, whether I can eat it or not 🙂
Current Need(s): I desperately need to clean my apartment. I haven’t had a weekend since February where I can devote time to each room. I don’t know how I don’t have a bug infestation. Gross. I also need a massage. Now.
Current Indulgence: My $25 planner and 2 new pairs of running shoes.
Now that’s a sight for sore eyes 😉
Current Blessing: Having a job & colleagues that I love, that challenge(s) me, that is applicable to my degree & my passions. It feels good to have life figured out for a while.
Current Outfit: Pajamas. My favorite outfit ever. A close second is any workout gear.
Current Excitement: 3 major life decisions coming into play in the next year: 2 marathons and starting a PhD program. I’m nervous and dreading the exhaustion I know all 3 will bring, but I’m pretty excited for the challenges and feelings of accomplishment.
