Taking Stock #047


Making :: I’m making plans for my week! A friend of mine is moving to France (and I’m not even jealous or upset) and another friend is having her engagement party! Exciting things are happening this week. When did we become old enough to move to a foreign country and get engaged? Life is speeding by way too fast!

Drinking :: Coffee. Standard. This time I decided to add in some chocolate powder. I’m currently sipping on mocha goodness. Clearly not hating it. A friend of mine introduced me to triple shot flat whites whilst we were in college last year…and they aren’t cutting it anymore. I’ve upgraded and it tastes so good. Not addicted to coffee at all 😉 College life. Being a student is tough.

Reading :: I’m still reading Lace by Shirley Conran. I’m only about four chapters in, but I’m determined to smash through a lot of it in this break! I have two weeks off before summer school starts. College life. Exciting stuff 😉

Eating :: Guys, I had chicken nuggets for the first time in four years (?) last weekend and they are AMAZING. I forgot how good they are. Yum. I also went to a new (ish) place in Orewa and got a banana milkshake. Best life choice. Kofte Kofte has amazing healthy food choices. Lord knows I’m all about that life, so I will definitely be going back to try out their salads (and fries with aioli).

Wishing :: That all the bad carbs were actually good for you and didn’t make you fat. Ha. People always say that I’m “so petite” and that my metabolism must be fast. I wish. I actually watch what I eat. A lot. I have been craving fries like there’s no tomorrow.

Enjoying :: I’m enjoying my little sleep in. I woke up at 7am, saw the clock and went back to sleep. I woke up at 9:30 and I’m pleasantly surprised with how long I managed to sleep. I’m usually that person who is awake as soon as their eyes open. Not today. Apparently. Not mad about it.

Waiting :: I’m waiting for my energy levels to increase. I have grand plans to go for a walk around the estuary this morning, but I don’t know if it’s going to happen. We’ll see. Good intentions and all that 😉

Wondering :: How long I can stay in bed before I get bored and/or hungry. (Time check: 10:55am). I’d say I can stay here for another half hour. At least. Ha. No judgement, please.

Hoping :: I’m hoping that I can get more shifts at work. I have two weeks off before summer school starts (yay), so I’m a bit lost. Already. Summer school is a college paper done via distance, so I have no contact classes AKA I can do it in bed if I really wanted. I’m also hoping that my time management skills will get better over the summer. I’m planning on taking four papers each semester, work and do an internship next year. That’ll be interesting.

Wearing :: I’m wearing some sweatpants that I stole from a friend of mine and a baggy jumper AKA my sleep clothes. I had pyjamas, but they’ve grown legs and walked away. I thought I got them off the washing line yesterday, but I can’t find them anywhere.

Trying :: To find motivation to get out of bed. I might be listening to The Sims 4 gameplay videos as I’ve been typing this. No shame. I’ve been playing The Sims for as long as I can remember, and I don’t think it’ll stop any time soon. Fingers crossed the developers bring toddlers back and come out with a pets expansion. Cough. No pressure. Cough, cough.

Feeling :: Good. Happy. Content. I’m 100% feeling like I’m at the right place in life (and New Zealand). It is such a nice feeling.
