Currently

I so should be asleep or close to it right now. I worked at 5:30 a.m. today and am back at 7 a.m., so I could really use it. But first I wanted to do a quick "currently" post with a bunch of random categories I selected as I went along.

Loving: House sitting in a place with a programmable thermostat. This probably seems silly, but being able to make sure the house isn't freezing when it's time to get out of bed is maybe the best thing ever. I'm sold. Someday I'll have one of my own.

Watching: Downton Abbey. Oh. My. Gosh. I can't even talk about it (and wouldn't anyways because I hate spoiling stuff for others--just like someone did for me on Facebook about the last episode). I also finished Private Practice. Kind of weird to think it's over. I caught up on New Girl and watched an episode (or two of Grey's Anatomy. Let's just say the Roku (more on that in another post) and Hulu Plus have changed my life.

Listening: It varies depending on my mood, but I've been on a bit of a Girl Talk kick, again. I also downloaded Tyrone Wells latest CD This Love with a gift card. And I'm still loving The Heist by Macklemore. I really should it mix it up more though. Any good recommendations?

Thinking: About whatever is next and trying not to get myself worked up about it. Luckily I have some amazing people in my corner. But it's still hard to not know.

Celebrating: Three mornings managing the Internet at work by myself. Okay, not the whole Internet, but our website and social channels. And I had to be there at 5:30 a.m. for it. My high school self would not know what to make of current me.

Wishing: For time to pass quickly and slow down all at once. I have some fun things planned in the coming weeks, but I also need all the time I can get for my job and figuring out life. Also, I'm starting to crave travel again. It has been quite a while (August) since I set foot on a plane. At least for me. What a first world problem...seriously.

Splurging: On a trip to Ulta. I had a few things on my list that I needed, and then other things started hopping into my bag. I don't know exactly how that happened. I might just have to do a little post about some of the goodies I grabbed. If I get around to it.

What have you been up to currently?

  3. Oooohhhh Ulta... Between them and Sephora, I'm only allowed to walk into their stores like once every other month. I'm not even a huge makeup girl, but shiz goes DOWN.

  4. I totally agree on the thermostat with timer. I don't even live in a cold area, but that helps me get up in the mornings like no other!
