Taking Stock #050

Taking Stock, Kendel @ Little Misadventures

Making :: I’m trying to make plans for the rest of my time in Auckland. I’m moving to the Coromandel for majority of summer, so I’m trying to see everyone one last time before I disappear. Nothing like a time crunch to get motivated to see all your friends, right?

Drinking :: Coffee…with chocolate powder that is supposed to make chocolate icing. Yeah, I did that. I accidentally grabbed the jar with my icing mixture in it instead of plain ol’ cocoa powder. I mean, same thing really. Right? No. It is not. My coffee has never tasted weirder than it does right now.

Reading :: I recently went out and bought a new book. It is called The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons. I first read the book when I was in high school. I read it several times over actually. I loved it and I still love it, so I knew that I had to have it when I saw it in The Warehouse. Can you believe that they’re making a film adaptation of the book? I am way too excited for this!

Eating :: I was eating chilli and lime snippets. You can buy them from the bulk bins at Pak’nSave. I’m obsessed with them. They are my favourite food at the moment.

Wishing :: I wish I had a small mountain of chilli and lime snippets. And good coffee. And a coffee plunger to make said good coffee. I also wish that Massey would release the exam results already. All this waiting around is killing me.

Enjoying :: I’m enjoying my day off. I went into work four days in a row last week. I’m not complaining, but I thought I had the whole week off. Having such a sudden change of plans took a little adjusting on my behalf. Today, I am lying in bed (still) and planning out my study. Summer school is in full swing and I have my first assignment due in a little under three weeks. I should probably get cracking with that essay. Right?

Waiting :: On these damn exam grades. I’m starting to think that I failed and that I now have to resit a paper. It wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world…but it would be too ideal. Fingers crossed the grades get released soon so my suffering can end. 

Wondering :: Where I should actually do my studying. The beauty of attending college online is that I can do it from wherever I want. In bed. At the beach. At the park. Not at all. No one would know because there isn’t a lecture hall that you have to find or tutorials that you need to attend. How cool is this? I used to think that online learning isn’t my thing (it is and it isn’t), but I definitely have my moments of loving it. This is a moment of pure love for online learning. College isn’t too bad.

Hoping :: I’m hoping that I am on the mend. Yesterday was awful. I was tired, weak and nauseous all day. It started off as a mild “I feel weird” and the day ended with “Good lord, I am definitely sleeping with a bucket beside my bed tonight” sort of feeling. I didn’t need the bucket in the end, but I still had a less than ideal night. I woke up at 1am and didn’t get back to sleep until 3.30am. I think I might have had five good hours of sleep, so I am tired. Exhausted. Cranky. Not a happy camper today.

Wearing :: My fluffy dressing gown. As always.

Trying :: I’m trying to find the motivation to get out of bed. I’m not quite there yet. Ha. I am 100% okay with being a lazy girl today. I need it.

Feeling :: Like there isn’t enough caffeine in the world to wake me up.
