Currently + The First Day Of School

The first day of classes means awkward introductions, the possibility of new friends, and lots and lots of coffee. By the by, this is my new favorite mug.

Loving. I'm still giddy over all of my Christmas presents. When I take Joker for a walk and pull out my Ray-Ban sunglasses I feel extra cool. It was really great to order those handful of things that I have been wanting forever.

 Recently I read Domino: The Book of Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating a Home That Makes You Happy. It was a really great read on a chilly Friday afternoon, with a coffee cup in hand. I have many more books on my shelf that I need to read, but I'm pretty excited to give The Help a go. My friend Lizzie's mom let me borrow her copy, so I'm going to get to that the first chance I get.

 I'm still obsessed with Modern Family. We just finished season three! This show puts a smile on my face every time, and I love how much it makes us laugh. This is hands-down my favorite show right now. I can not get enough of Cam!

Thinking about. Today was the first day of school for this semester. I don't know why, but I'm always nervous. I'm taking more classes this term, so I guess you could say I'm a little anxious.

Anticipating. I can't wait until Friday! Since I have next Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, off of school Jason and I are going to spend the weekend in LA. I just can't get enough of that town. There is always so much to do, and I love spending time with my brother.

Listening to.
I've been in Pandora mode lately, so nothing too specific. I had a pretty good time blasting Lady GaGa's "Bad Romance" on the drive home today though. Good times.

 I really want to make time for everything I want to do this semester. I just need to stay organized. There is this quote by Lao Tzu that is very dear to my heart, and that I refer to in times of need: "Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished".

Making me happy.
 I'm really proud of myself for finding time to work out on the elliptical for an hour a day 4 or 5 times a week. It's hard, but definitely worth it.

Thank you to Danielle at Sometimes Sweet for the idea for this post. What are you currently into? ♥


  1. hope your first day went great! my ray bans went missing a couple months ago, and i've definitey missed them in my life so don't lose yours! haha

  2. Good luck on your first day! I always get really nervous about me new people, I'm also extremely awkward around new people, so that doesn't help me at all haha.


    1. I talked to a few people, and made it through the first two days in one piece! Yay :)

  3. Uhm I TOTALLY love that mug too! SO CUTE! Which Ray Bans do you have? I swear by Club Masters - they are the only kidn I wear (I have three going on four pairs :D I have lucked into a lot of them being given to me, including my ex boss walking in and giving me a pair becuase she didn't like them!) I always hated the first day of school myself - but it was because it was always the SAME people (my major you stayed with the same 20 kids for 5 years, it was a competitive, focused program)
