Taking Stock #001

I originally had this post over at my old blog and before that I had seen it on this blog over here. She’s now a missionary-in-training as she is heading over to Korea to serve for eighteen months! She has even started a brand new blog that is updated once a week so we can go on the journey with her. How neat is that? Anyway, I really like the idea of a ‘quick update’ so I thought I would keep this feature going on my new blog too!


Making :: my heart rate slow down. My car can keep up {kind of} with a friggin’ Ferrari, folks! That’s exciting news. Well, until they went over 150km/h and then I got the speed wobbles. Ha. Still, for a solid one or two minutes I was tailgating them so hard. It was a good time. Pure adrenaline, right there. Now I can understand why racers do it all the time.

Drinking :: coffee. Always coffee.

Reading :: I got a new book for Christmas! Hooray! It’s called Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult. It’s about a girl who is born with osteogenesis imperfecta, otherwise known as OI or brittle bone disease. It’s heartbreakingly sad but it shows you what a true family is all about at the same time. One of my favorite books, hands down.

Wanting :: to have all my university stuff sorted out; my re-enrollment, my house, my payment details. Everything. It’s not really a want, it’s more a need actually. Time is ticking away.

Looking :: at houses to live in. I’m living with four boys this year. Four boys and me. This is going to be interesting.

Playing :: Sims 3 Pets. I’ve found my addition within it again.

Wasting :: time. I don’t have much time until university starts again but I still haven’t applied for my loans. Whoops. Time is ticking away and I know the people I have to deal with aren’t the easiest of folks. I might regret this.

Eating :: salad; lettuce, carrot, feta cheese and a vegetarian patty. It doesn’t sound like much but it was amazing.

Wishing :: that the world would right itself. Everything seems to be upside down again and I hate it.

Enjoying :: …my job, still. That’s a pretty serious thing to say since I’m working seven days a week and I’ve only had one day off. It’s true though. I really, truly love my job and I would do it for a long, long time if I had the chance.

Waiting :: until I can go visiting. I have friends in Hamilton, friends in Auckland and friends in Taupo that I’ve promised to visit before university starts again. Well, we’ll see how that goes ;]

Liking :: the fact that I still haven’t eaten meat. I’m sure I accidentally ate some food that had sneaky ingredients that were derived from meat but that’s a whoopsie on my behalf. This month I’m getting more serious about it and I’m looking up all those tricky devils so I won’t make the same mistake again.

Wondering :: what drives other people. I’m curious. I want to know the how, what, when, where, who and whys of their life.

Loving :: my job. Just love.

Hoping :: I can get my ass into gear about eating healthily again. I say I’m going to but then candy {probably loaded with animal} is so tempting. I didn’t eat candy or any junk food for three weeks once, so I know I can do it. I just have to find that same motivation.

Marveling :: at how family can come together so quickly. I’m so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful family.

Needing :: a kick in the ass so I can get motivated about my health goals. Two weeks left before time runs out for my January goals.

Smelling :: clean laundry. I’m currently snuggling in my dressing gown and it is glorious.

Wearing :: my dressing gown…soon to be my running gear. I’m determined to go for a short run tonight, even if the effort kills me.

Following :: the sexy people of Instagram. I’m still addicted. Give me abs, beautiful eyes and an attractively sexy accent any day.

Noticing :: that I need a couple of days notice before a family gathering. My family is suddenly rather large. I love them all but I’m an introvert and I need a day or two of preparation before I get tossed in with the screaming children.

Knowing :: that a bit of ‘me time’ is good…and normal.

Thinking :: about what living with four lads is going to be like. Some say a nightmare, others say awesome. I guess I’ll find out soon enough ;]

Bookmarking :: websites that have the hidden ingredients listed. I’m brushing up on my knowledge. This was just an experiment but now it’s going to become my full-time lifestyle. Vegetarianism agrees with me.

Opening :: my secret draw of hidden stuff; money, shoes, lipgloss and a nail clipper. This draw is full of endless possibilities and surprises.

Trying :: to remember to breathe. I feel like I have a to-do list that is the length of my arm and growing every day without respite for my sanity. I’m trying to remind myself that I’m still in control.

Feeling :: dkhlksfhsl.
