Loving… generosity (and saving money). Last night, I picked up a TV stand and TV from a coworker who is moving. Since these were two items I will need soon for my new apartment, I was more than happy to take these items off her hands! I also came home with a bag full of clothes last weekend, after spending time with my mom. She was getting rid of some of her clothes, and since we’re the same size, she let me take a peek and see if there was anything I wanted. It’s like getting an entirely new wardrobe, since everything I wore to work this week was from her closet! Thanks, Mom!
Loathing… summer. I want to love summer, I really do, but it’s so damn hot and humid. I start sweating within a few minutes of being outside, and I just want to spend as little time as possible outside. But also, the sunshine feels good on my skin and I love being outside on a beautiful day. So it’s truly a lose-lose situation.
Reading… Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! This is my favorite book of the series, and I feel so happy rereading it. I can’t wait to watch the movie when I finish it!
Watching… Master of None. I started this show a few weeks ago and have been watching episodes here and there. It’s really, really good. The acting can be hit or miss, but I kinda like it. It feels more real and true to life. And I like that it touches on social issues in a heartwarming way.
Anticipating… my birthday cruise… which is still 19 weeks away (but who’s counting). I am so excited to get away for a week, but it’s so far away! I definitely need to plan for a little staycation between now and then because I haven’t taken any time off since my short weekend cruise in March. I am well overdue!
Thinking about… how precious life is. This past week, at the bike trail right next to my work, an early-morning biker ran into a downed live power line and died. This person was just out for a morning bike ride, getting exercise, and tragedy happens. It’s so terrifying. Life is so fragile, so precious. We only get this one life to live, this one chance here on earth. It’s scary how quickly, how tragically, a life can end. A person who had a beating heart and a family and a life and dreams and hopes and goals… just gone. Forever. The finality of death takes my breath away.
Needing… a quiet weekend. This weekend will be semi-quiet. I have a few plans, but it will mostly be a weekend for rest and catching up on life. I’m hoping next weekend will be even quieter, though. Is there anything better than a lazy, do-nothing weekend? This highly sensitive introvert says no!
