Guys I have to confess: I don’t have a post for today. I was doing so well at staying ahead with drafts while the ideas were fresh, but recently both my drafts and ideas have run low. Oops. So I’ve decided to do one of those “Currently…” posts that I’ve seen other bloggers do. Just share a little about myself and what I’m into these days. You’ll learn a little more about me and I’ll have a post…whew. Ok, here we go!
Currently craving: Lately I’ve been really into Hershey Kisses. I’ve loved them since I was a kid but the obsession comes and goes and lately it’s ON! I bite the top off and suck on them.
Currently reading: Likeable Social Media by Dave Kerpen. It’s ok so far. Somewhat useful, but a little dry. I’ll have a full review next week when I share reviews of the books I read in February. (January’s list is here!)
Currently feeling: Excited and happy! The week is off to a great start! I was so excited on Monday to find that the Huffington Post ran one of my posts! Oddly it’s one I wrote about losing my dream job. I’m glad positive things are coming from that unhappy situation!
Currently listening to: I love rediscovering music in my library and recently it’s been Florence + The Machine. Seriously talented and the lyrics are like poetry. No Light, No Light and Shake It Out are some of my favorite songs period.
I’ve listened to a ton of podcasts lately too: while I’m in the shower, getting ready for work, driving, going through email, cleaning…pretty much any time I can have them in the background. I wrote a post awhile ago about some of my favorites, but lately I’ve been really interested in The Minimalists and their new podcast. I’ve ventured more and more into minimalism and their talks really resonate with me. They’re the bloggers that gave us the inspiration for the Minsgame I co-hosted last fall!
Currently drinking: Water. Lots of water. I’m trying very hard to significantly cut back the amount of Dr. Pepper I drink. So far it’s been going well. I don’t drink it at work at all and drink a lot more water.
Currently watching: The only show I keep up with regularly is Grey’s Anatomy, but when I earn Amazon Video credits with No-Rush Shipping I buy episodes of Tiny House Nation or other tiny house shows. Tiny House Nation is my favorite though. I love how they customize these beautiful and fascinating houses! I should also add that I have a love/hate relationship with Grey’s. I’m watching because I’ve been loyal for a gazillion seasons, but I’m tired of the emotional roller coaster. I cry during nearly every episode!I should also add that I have a love/hate relationship with Grey's Anatomy. Click To Tweet
Current goal: This. If you’re a regular reader, I don’t need to say anything else.
Current new interest: I recently read Fast Food Nation, and while the food disturbed me, the overall talk about chemicals disturbed me the most. There was a section about how they create the beef flavor that gives McDonald’s french fries their distinct taste and how it was created by scientists, in a lab, practically alongside perfume and with a nearly identical process. There was nothing food-related or culinary about it. I’d never really given deep thought to how scents are created, but this really turned me off from all my fun girly scented products. So my latest interest has been switching to more natural products including cleaning, makeup, hair care, skin care, and general healthcare. Less chemicals and some still have a nice subtle scent. So recently I’ve been interested in learning more about this. The change in diet will come eventually too but it’s hard for me to change my eating habits…and those laboratory created french fries are darn good!
Currently…going to make dinner.
Thanks for bearing with me everyone. I will have some fresh content next week. Hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me! I’d love to learn about you too so please comment below with some of the things you’re currently doing or enjoying!
