Taking Stock #056

Taking Stock, Kendel @ Little Misadventures

Making :: A list of interview questions. I have a college assignment due in two(ish) weeks and the entire basis of the essay is from an interview. No pressure. I am equal parts terrified and excited for this assignment. Linguistics, you never fail to throw me for a loop (or two). Please, please send good thoughts my way.

Drinking :: Coffee with hazelnut syrup and no sugar. Did you read that? Guys, I no longer take sugar with my coffee. We’re talking about instant coffee that requires sugar 80% of the time. I feel so grown up right now.

Reading :: Assignment briefs and blog posts. They seem to be taking over my life at the moment. I’m starting to feel like I’m either a) driving somewhere, or b) reading something about linguistics. I feel like I’m chasing my tail. Not going to lie. Working seven days a week and studying at the same time is hard. Some “holiday” I’m having 😉

Eating :: My nana left this amazing spiced date and nut loaf in the freezer. I have taken to slicing off a piece every time I walk into the kitchen. I’d say there’s only one-third of the loaf left. We got it out yesterday. Not even sorry.

Wishing :: I wish that I could bake like my mother and nana. They are amazing cooks. Probably because they spent years catering weddings. I’m just not blessed with the ‘good cook’ gene or good at dancing, singing, acting, or design gene.

Enjoying :: I’m really starting to like these early mornings. I’ve been waking up between 5:30-6am every day and it is brilliant. I feel so much more productive in the morning. I usually smash out some study or blog posts then get ready for work and go about the rest of my day. Afternoons are dedicated to workouts, course readings and (occasionally) catching up with blog comments. (I know I’m slack at replying at the moment, I am so sorry!) 

Waiting :: I’m not going to lie, I’m waiting to move back to Auckland. I keep mentioning it, but that just means that I am that excited to get back. I really, really miss the place. Truly. I might have a countdown going on my phone. I have (roughly) eleven days left before I’m back in Auckland! Eeep. So close.

Wondering :: I’m wondering what I would look like with brown hair. I don’t know why, but I’ve had the urge to completely change my look lately. I know someone who switches between brunette and blonde, and she looks amazing no matter what. I wish I had the balls to do it too. I mean, it’s only hair, right?

Hoping :: I’m hoping that I can find an internship this year! It would be a dream. An honest to goodness dream. Please keep your fingers crossed for me.

Wearing :: My fluffy dressing gown. This is a pretty accurate representation of what I look like right now.

Trying :: To get ready for work. I don’t have to leave for another hour but my brain is just saying “nap”. Can you tell that I’m tired? Because I am.

Feeling :: Nap.

    1. I LOVE linguistics! Haha. It would 1000% be my major if I knew what I wanted to do with it. I have no clue. All I know is that I don’t want to be a lecturer or a researcher. Ha. I probably would have gone into the police force with it, but I just like PR communication aspect of it a lot more 🙂 Good lecturers do make the world of difference though!
