Taking Stock

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that sometimes I like to pause with whatever’s going on for a little bit and take stock of what’s going on in my life at the present moment. I feel like I’m always moving and rushing on, it’s nice to take a breath and just write it out. Before beginning this new week, I wanted to stop and take stock of the past week.

Making: Plans for my new apartment
Cooking: Nothing right now, but I’m wishing I had grabbed breakfast this morning!
Drinking: No more soda! My boss has started a competition in the office, I’m not sure I’ll be able to hold out though!
Reading: The Hunger Games series. Yep. On that bandwagon.
Wanting: My space heater back! Work said they were a fire hazard and took them all away. Totally understandable, but my fingers are freezing on my keyboard now!
Looking: At new furniture I’ll only ever have in my dreams. Online window shopping!
Playing: With my budget for the next couple months. Seeing where I can move things around to be able to save up money to be able to go home.
Deciding: Some big things soon. In the end I know things will end up as they should.
Wishing: This cold weather would go away! I’m ready for some GA heat!
Enjoying: Talking and laughing with one of the regulars here. He cracks me up on a daily basis!
Waiting: For Friday for some news on a new opportunity.
Liking: My super cute shoes today. Little black booties are making me feel like a star today!
Wondering: When I should start my travel series for my blog?
Loving: Being able to see my boyfriend almost every day lately. Timing has been on our side this past week and it makes me super happy!
Pondering: What to cook for dinner tonight. My roommate and I BOTH bought groceries yesterday so we are ALL stocked up for a while.
Watching: Revenge ALL the time! Well, not at work of course but at home. I need to catch up on it!
Hoping: That someone brings back my heater or the weather warms up. My frozen fingers are having some trouble typing!
Marveling: At how incredibly kind people can be. And at how not-so-kind some people are on the phone.
Wearing: Suits on suits on suits. AKA work clothes.
Following: Along with a travel blog religiously and seriously considering moving to South Korea
Noticing: My spirit coming back. The excitement of a new city and new opportunities and a new apartment are giving me new life.
Knowing: That I am surrounded by people who support and love me.
Thinking: About whether to take a jump into another new opportunity or now.
Feeling: Pretty optimistic about the next few years!
Admiring: Puppies and kittens at the local shelter
Buying: Apartment things. I’m exciting to stock up my new place!
Bookmarking: DIY websites for later when I’m feeling more crafty
Opening: Myself up to other opportunities. I thought grad school right away was something I wanted, now I’m considering putting it off for a different adventure.
Giggling: Over silly posts from some of my favorite bloggers. I don’t usually read blogs over the weekend so this morning I’m catching up!

  1. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers do something similar to this. I should do it at least once. I’m with you on moving to Korea. I have been following a few and I am really really thinking about going there to teach. Who do you follow?
    And I think a lot of people are reading for the cold weather to go away. It sucks here!!


    • I follow Amanda over at Living in Another Language. Her and her husband seem to be having a blast over there and I also kind of want to be her friend, haha. It looks like the kind of life I’d love!
