WATCHING
Hallmark Christmas movies. Best Christmas Party Ever has been my favorite this year.

LISTENING 
The Civil Wars on repeat. + Mariah McManus Christmas album.

LEARNING
That how others view me or how I'm treated does not define who I am. Holding onto these words: "The world tells you many lies about who you are, and you simply have to be realistic enough to remind yourself of this. Every time you feel hurt, offended, or rejected, you have to dare to say to yourself: ‘These feelings, strong as they may be, are not telling me the truth about myself."

EATING
More dark chocolate than I should.

FEELING
Excited that I get to surprise my parents by spending an extra week in Tennessee. We have two additional days off at work for the holidays, so I changed my flight and will be spending 15 DAYS in Tennessee. I repeat, HALF A MONTH IN TENNESSEE!

WATCHING
Big Brother. Only a week and half until the finale. I'm hoping Derrick wins!

LISTENING 
Sugar and the Hi-Lows. Their album titled Wild Desire features covers of Johnny Cash songs. Love.

LEARNING
To appear positive on the outside, despite falling apart on the inside.

EATING
Slowly starting to eat healthier, starting tonight with fish and a kale + pear salad for dinner. For the month of October I will be doing the Whole30 Program. It'll be a challenge, but I think I can do it.

DRINKING
French Press coffee. Once I start the Whole30 Program, it'll be dark coffee only.

HOPING
That the stray cat in our neighborhood will find a good home. The bestie is asking a friend at work who rescues animals if she'll take it. I just want it to be loved and cared for and okay. Growing attached to it.

WATCHING
Friday Night Lights on Netflix. "Clear eyes, full hearts." I'm on season four.

LISTENING 
I've been trying to seek out new music by listening to random playlists on 8tracks. Also, the song I'm most obsessed with right now is Cool Kids.

LEARNING
That things happen and there's nothing you can do to change it. That sometimes you have to accept life and keep moving forward. 

MAKING
Lately it's been cookies. This past week I brought in dark chocolate chip cookies to the office and made them twice due to popular demand.

DRINKING
Dutch Brothers black iced tea with vanilla. So refreshing. 

WISHING
It was fall and I could wear sweaters and scarves and drink, smell and eat all things pumpkin.

WANTING
To not have to schedule another doctor's appointment. My blood work came back and showed that I have "elevated liver enzymes." Which apparently is common for those who drink a lot of alcohol, which I don't. Anyway, they recommend I get an ultrasound. Joy.

FEELING
Honestly, not awesome. But I have yoga pants + Netflix + hot tea to help me not think about that.

Me, Currently

WATCHING 1. The Leftovers and I'm not sure I dig it quite yet. It’s bizarre. 2. Big Brother. Obsessed. 3. I just finished watching the Gossip Girl series. Two years after the show ended.

LISTENING to Passenger’s latest.

THINKING that people who feature your work in their portfolio need a high five. In the face. With a chair. 

WISHING I could take a long weekend trip to Tennessee to visit my family over Labor Day. Why the heck are plane tickets so outrageously expensive?!

HOPING that everything will work itself out.

WANTING thunderstorms and rain. Come on, Arizona!

FEELING up and down and all around. Per usual.
