I don't have a lot of time to read, but when I do I switch between Alice Munroe's "My Best Stories" and "The Rosie Project" by Don Tillman.
I have been obsessed with itunes lately and buying as much music as I can possible afford (or think I can by putting it on my credit card). My latest purchases are:
Somebody loves you - Betty Who
Feather, Fur & Fin - Danny Michel
Lights Out - Ingrid Michaelson
Sheezus - Lily Allen
Pure Heroine - Lorde
All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor
Can you tell I love pop music?
Current guilty pleasure:
But I do love my pop music...
Current nail colour:
For the first time in a long time, I'm going au naturel. Which is driving me nuts - I am way too femme to have bare nails.
COFFEECOFFEECOFFEE. I am running on zero sleep, so coffee is a must. Also, big smoothies with lots of matcha green tea, more caffeine the better!
Lovin' smoothies and salads. It's summer time!
Current favourite show:
Community, Orange Is The New Black, Broad City
Current wish list:
I'm on another Buffy kick, and some of my friends here are obsessed as well, so I've been browsing Etsy for some subtle but awesome Buffy jewellery. Now I desperately want this necklace.
A deep tissue massage! Work has been stressful and I haven't had any time to work out my muscles with yoga, so my shoulders and neck are feeling the pain. Anyone want to come over and rub me down? Pretty please?
I am a stress eater, and when sh*t hits the fan I turn to food for comfort. Well, sh*t has been hitting the fan on a consistent basis, but I have been choosing healthy foods over junky ones. I occasionally indulge in some french fries, but otherwise I've been choosing smoothies and oatmeal when I absolutely need to shove food in my face.
Current bane of my existence:
Different work schedules than Kaylee. We rarely get to Skype, and it's been really bothering me lately. I knew that long distance would be hard, but not being able to see her face every day is driving me a little bonkers. Also, I've been a little down because a friend of ours from Germany is staying with her for the week, and I'm not there to partake in the fun. It's hard when I'm stressed at work to remain positive about the distance, especially when she's having such a good time with people I miss.
Current celebrity crush:
I've been watching Community, and am slightly obsessed with Donald Glover. He's hilarious, charming, adorable, has great comedic timing and is an incredible rapper. Love. Him.
A few people at work have birthdays, so this weekend I am going to bake my butt off, then eat all the vegan cupcakes I can!
My friends. It's easy to forget how incredible your friends are when you're hanging out with them, but when you're separated and they still Skype you and send you mail, you realize how important they are in your life. I will never take them for granted.
Lululemon tank top, black yoga sweater, jeans, and converse sneakers. With pearl earrings. Always a class act.
Exhausted and a little home sick, but trying to remain positive.
Amy Poehler is a goddess, and here's why she should also be my life coach.
What's your life like, currently?
Have you ever dealt with being home sick? How did you remain positive?
