Obsessions: August 2015

Some days I feel like this blogging every day in August challenge I have going will be the death of me. Honestly. I don’t believe my brain has ever hurt so much. Trying to come up with non-specific content every day is hard. So hard.

I know I said this the other day, but I give the every (second) day bloggers mad props. You guys must be on top of life and be sailing through the writing/editing process like it’s nothing. In my mind, you guys don’t break a sweat. You are blogging machines. I’m in awe of you. Really.

I’m sitting here at 9.51pm wondering what the heck I’m going to spew out. I finally got my inspiration when I stumbled across Julia’s latest post. She shared a list of stuff that she is currently loving that is not like my regular feature. I figured that I love a lot of stuff, and I would love for you guys to know all about it. Why not share my love of stuff with the rest of the world?
my obsessions, kendel @ little misadventures blogCurrent Book: Is it wrong if I list a textbook? I’m actually enjoying my media law textbook. I know. I’m shocked, too. It turns out that I like reading about media law. Who would have thought? College readings. You should do them. They seem like a drag (and they are 90% of the time), but college can really open your eyes to new areas of life. Law is now on my radar. #amreading

If I can’t pick a textbook (set textbook, that is) then I would have to say that I’m really enjoying a book called Singled Out: How Singles Are Stereotyped, Stigmatized, and Ignored, and Still Live Happily Ever After by Bella Depaulo. I’m only one chapter in, but I’ve found myself nodding away to everything that she has written. Once again, college is to thank for this discovery. Who would have thought that stepping into the college library would have led to such amazing finds? 😉

Current TV Show: I have been watching The Affair with someone and I am 100% obsessed. It is taking all of my willpower to not skip to the end. We have two episodes to go and I am dying (almost) of anticipation. I’m currently trying to figure out whether I can get the show to fit to an assignment of mine. I think a little powwow with the lecturer is needed. I’m writing (or planning) an essay on what makes creative communication creative. They define it as providing pleasure and providing insight to what it means to be human. I think The Affair would be perfect.

Current Movie: Dumbo. I watched Dumbo on TV the other day, and my childhood self was so, so happy. I forgot it was that sad though. I’m sure child-me would have been mildly traumatised.

Current iPhone Wallpaper Desktop Background: I’m poor (really though) and don’t have an iPhone, but I do have a MacBook Air. It is my pride and joy, and I definitely changed the background a lot more than I should.

Current Nail Colour: I actually just took the colour off my nails. I have this wonderful creme brûlée colour, but I think it is finally drying out after all these years. It is my favourite and I have used it over and over and over. It is such a simple, nude (yet shimmery) colour that stands out just enough without being imposing. That is my type of nail polish. I will be looking for another one. Soon.

Current Drink: Oh my, spicy chai lattes with soy milk. I cannot deal. I am obsessed. I also broke my goal of not buying cafe coffee. Whoops. #soznotsoz 😉 Worth it.

Current Food: If you’ve seen my tweets, then you would have noticed that they’ve been a bit food-oriented at the moment. I have food on the brain. My latest thing is schnitzel. I seem to go through phases of eating one particular meat. Right now it is schnitzel and I’m not complaining. It is so good. That being said, remember those waffles? Yeah? They’re pretty good too 😉 I’m going to be making them (again) tomorrow morning.

Current Obsession: Is it bad if I say: “my bed”? I have been feeling so tired lately that I’ve been falling asleep at 8pm. No joke. I’ll sleep for an hour or two then wake up. It seems to be a recurring theme. I’m also taking naps in the middle of the day. I’m not hating it. At all, actually. My bed is comfortable, so I’d say it’s pretty safe to assume that I’m a little obsessed with it.

Current Wish: I wish there was a magical assignment fairy who would descend from a cloud to start finish my assignments for me. That would be pretty neat. All the assignment deadlines are starting to creep up on me, and I do not appreciate it. I was cruising through the semester until all these “reminders” started popping up in my diary.

Current Need: Chocolate. I’m not a real chocolate person, but I could murder a slab of rum ‘n raisin chocolate right now. Yum.

Current Procrastination: Blogging. Blogging is my form of procrastination. Well, sort of. I feel like I’m accomplishing something by hitting that ‘publish’ button, but it still isn’t something I absolutely need to do (like college readings). That being said, I was also playing The Sims 4 for a while. I’d say that is a surefire way to kill some time. The Sims 4 is a time suck like no other. “Just ten more minutes” turns into a good hour completely wasted and you have no idea how that happened but your sim is now married with two kids. That’s an accomplishment, right? 😉 Jess knows what I’m talking about.

Current Excitement: The fact that I get to go to sleep soon. Sad, no? It’s a Friday night and I’m excited about being able to go to sleep. Someone give me a walking cane and my rocking chair, I am officially a nana. (I’m actually not complaining. I’m not usually this tired for no reason, so my body obviously needs the extra sleep).

Current Mood: This photo was taken last year, but it still represents my mood perfectly. In fact, I still have that teddy bear and I even wrote about it. I may not be spooning my teddy bear tonight, but I am definitely looking forward to some good sleep. I am tired. That is my mood: tired.

Current Bane of My Existence: College readings. I know. “But you like them!” “You signed up for this!” I have heard it all. Trust me, I know. I knew exactly what I was in for when I signed up for college, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not allowed to complain every now and again. (Yes, double negative. Shoot me, I’m tired). I feel like I’m drowning in college readings. I let myself get so far behind that it is insane. I have two hundred (at least) pages to catch up on. Guys. Learn from my mistake and don’t go to college keep up with your readings.

Current Blessing: The $200 a week roof over my head that I have. I’m well aware that my situation is a lot better to others and I’m not ignorant. I know it could be worse. I’m also blessed in the fact that my family supports me with whatever decision I make. I just dropped the bomb of “I think I want to stay in Auckland over summer” on them and they didn’t even flinch. Hooray.

What are you ‘obsessing’ over?

What are some of your favourite TV shows? I’m going to be looking for more in the very near future, so please give me your recommendations! 🙂

    1. Ooh, not Game of Thrones! Ha. I lived in a house of boys last year and they tried to get me to watch it, but nada. Not my jam ha. I am absolutely hanging out for Grimm and Empire to start again! I used to love Gossip Girl, so I might have to give that a go!


  1. Grey’s Anatomy. Hands down my favorite show! I thought I wouldn’t like it, but I have become obsessed. I finally got caught up on all 11 seasons and I’m so ready for season 12 to start this fall!
