I think it's time for another "taking stock of my life" post! Here's what's up in my life right now, as described through various -ing verbs.
Making: myself very tired with all the work I'm doing.
Eating: Chick-Fil-A, because it's always open on campus.
Drinking: hot chocolate. Always.
Reading: Callum & Harper by Fisher Amelie, as well as a bunch of other things for school.
Writing: essays for classes, mostly.
Editing: old blog posts on here, hopefully soon to be editing COCA.
Wanting: a facial cleanser that doesn't have sulfates in it.
Looking: for friends. I'd like to make some more friends.
Playing: Candy Crush Saga. A lot. Also, the Doctor Who matchy game thing.
Deciding: what new makeup looks best on me. (Shh, it's a thing right now.)
Wishing: I had better money management skillz.
Enjoying: the fact that I've only had a three day week for school.
Waiting: for midterms to be over.
Liking: the fact that Ch1Con now has a full speaker lineup! Check it out!
Wondering: as usual, about the exciting world of publishing.
Loving: my new lip color, FLOWER Sheer Up Lip Tint in Airy Orchid.
Pondering: exactly how I'm going to get COCA edited if I have so much stuff to do.
Considering: the merits of color correcting concealer.
Watching: Spartacus cause lots of trouble. He's figured out how to open doors now.
Hoping: for more time to edit COCA!
Marveling: at how I managed to get so many darn books on my TBR list.
Needing: more time. Moar. Time.
Smelling: the vague bleachy smell of our air conditioner.
Wearing: Faded Glory bootcut jeans, brown and gold sandals, a gold-tone necklace with a lapis luzi
center, and this great lavender blouse that has white flower patterns all over it and an asymmetrical
neckline with this circle accent thing.
Following: my cat around the house. I want to snuggle. He's less sure.
Noticing: how weirdly deep-set/hooded my eyes are.
Knowing: that I don't enjoy my American Lit class.
Thinking: about issues in my Developing World class: currently, maternal health and child mortality.
Admiring: the way volumizing mascara looks.
Sorting: my clothes to get rid of the ones with holes in them. I overwear my clothes.
Buying: lots of makeup and beauty stuff, in case you didn't notice. I'm tweaking my style to better fit my
current needs and interests.
Getting: lots more books in giveaways! Yay!
Bookmarking: most recently, an eyebrow shaping guide. I mess that up a lot.
Disliking: American Lit class. See above.
Opening: lots of books. Mostly textbooks, sadly.
Giggling: at this cat gif.
Feeling: decently okay, despite my tiredness.
Helping: out at the Rexburg Family Crisis Center for a Developing World project.
Hearing: the "Cups" song from Pitch Perfect stuck in my head.
Thanks for checking in, and I'll see you next time for (finally!) our June humor post!
