Taking Stock #036

taking-stock Making :: I’m making decisions for my Sims family 😉 That’s right. I’m one of those girls who plays The Sims 4. Don’t get jealous now 😉 I’ve been playing this game for a good portion of my life and I have no plans to stop any time soon. It’s such a good distraction from study, responsibility and general “adulting” activities.

Drinking :: Coffee. With cinnamon. Standard.

Reading :: I’m reading a really interesting college textbook called Criminology by Stephen Jones. I’m reading a textbook for fun. Who would have thought? This is probably the one and only textbook I have devoured in such a short amount of time. I’m obsessed and in love. Criminology is a little side passion of mine 😉 Don’t know if you could tell or not. I’m starting to think that I’m going to become a professional college student and get a degree in criminology after I’ve gotten my degree in journalism. College for lifeeeeee (probably).

Eating :: Lately I’ve been wanting to eat everything. All the things, all the time. I went to my sister and her boyfriend’s house last night and they cooked the best feed ever. There was crayfish in green curry sauce, roast lamb and vegetables, breads and the best non-alcoholic drink I have had in my whole life. So good. I could eat nothing but crayfish for the rest of my life and be perfectly content.

Wishing :: I wish that my car would get fixed. Quickly. For minimal money. I took my car to the mechanic on Friday and he discovered that the radiator is cracked and ran computers over the system to find another issue (or two). Surprise, surprise. They think there’s something off with the cam belt timing, but they need more time to sort it out. I’m just sitting here praying that it doesn’t cost a bomb because my parents have already dropped $1,000 on it this year. Gah, cars.

Enjoying :: I’m still really enjoying this holiday period. I’m starting to get annoyed with the lack of structure in my day, but not enough to really complain about it 😉 I’m liking be able to sleep in, cook breakfast and take it back to bed, and write a blog post in the morning. No rushing about for this girl! College life is oh so good 😉

Waiting :: I’m waiting to hear back about my car. I miss her. A lot. Gah. Why do I always get so attached to inanimate objects and not people? I clearly have a few issues 😉

Wondering :: I’m wondering if I can have a second (and third) cup of coffee and call that “breakfast”. It counts, right?

Hoping :: I’m hoping that I passed my PR exam. I’m really worried about it. I’m too nervous/scared to check if grades have been released yet. My lecturer was actually in Europe at the time of our exam, so fingers crossed that she hasn’t gotten around to marking them yet 😉

Wearing :: I’m wearing my cuddly dressing gown. Standard. I’m still in bed and it’s 9:50am. Standard (for a holiday).

Trying :: I’m trying to figure out if I can do four rounds of my leg/butt circuits instead of just two. Today is leg day and I’m already mildly excited for it and dreading it at the same time. Whoever said seven minute circuits are easy is a liar and you shouldn’t trust them. I’m always dripping with sweat at the end of them.

Feeling :: Blah. This morning is just one of those mornings. I have zero motivation, yet all these things on my “to do” list. Isn’t that how it always goes?

  1. Haha I used to be addicted to the Sims – the ultimate way to procrastinate, the hours just dissapear when you are on that. There is nothing worse than waiting for your car to be fixed, we really don’t realise the freedom they give us until they are gone! x

    1. Used to be?! Haha. How is that possible? The hours really do slip away! I swear I spent 90% of yesterday just playing Sims! No shame. Ha. Right? I really love my car. I get seriously attached to them, like unhealthily attached haha. I do miss the ability to be able to up and leave whenever I want to though. Freedom is everything to me and I start to feel a little claustrophobic if I don’t have it ;(


  2. I completely feel you, I’ve spend around $1000 on my car in the past month. Car troubles are the worst, I’m sorry. I keep going back and forth on whether not it’s time to get a new car. The car payment would suck but the stress level decrease might be worth it? Your thoughts?

    Also, what is your leg/butt workout routine? I’m looking for a new one. Mine has gotten a little too easy for me.

    1. This is my THIRD car in 2.5 years. I need it to stick around for a little bit haha. I haven’t even had it for a year 😦 I think if the repairs start pushing past half the buying price of the car then it’s time to buy a new one. I think I’m getting pretty close to that figure haha. It depends what they find now. I might be getting a new one or I might be getting a super tuned up one!

      I don’t really workout all too often and I have no muscle in my legs, so anything is killer for me ha. I’m actually doing that BBG workout #typical and I’m noticing results in my fitness already. I’m only in the “pre-training” stages, so it’s just a whole lot of lunges/squats/typical workout stuff really. Good for me though cause I’m a n00b.


    1. Haha YES. I think I’ve lost two or three days since holidays have started. I’ve just sat in bed with my laptop and a bunch of coffee ha. No shame 😉 I just wish they would come out with better/more expansions! I want to play the pet expansion so bad.

  3. Yay a criminology fan! I’m not alone haha! I love criminology, always reading about it!

    Never tried coffee with cinnamon, sounds really good! And car maintenance is the worst right?!

    1. My goodness, I LOVE criminology! Someone requested the book I had, so I had to return it 😦 Booo. I’m forever watching shows about it though! So fascinating. I might have to go find some psychology books too.

      Just a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top! It tastes so good 🙂 I’m a bit obsessed with cinnamon though. I’m putting it on/in everything at the moment 😀 Car maintenance…ugh, don’t get me started hahaha. Only do it because I would be royally screwed without a car >.< and I do kind of love my car haha.


  4. I miss the sims!I really want to download sims 4 for my computer but am afraid that that’s ALL i will do… there are so many things I try to balance already (blogging, working, cooking, cleaning, reading and Netflix-ing) adding “play the sims” worries me…. ahhh I’ll probably download it anyway. 😛 just wish the price would go down!!
