I think I’m going to start a new series on this blog. I have the exploring my city thing that I am going to be working on but I am also going to do a currently post every so often to talk about the things I’m reading, the writing I’m doing and the things I just love overall right now.
GENERAL: It is officially summer in Vegas. Growing up my dad used to tell me that Vegas only had two seasons, hot and cold. I didn’t understand him at the time. My teacher had just explained to me how there were four season and I didn’t understand how hot and cold were seasons when my teacher said Summer, Spring, Fall and Winter. I get it now and he was right. It is either cold in Vegas or it is hot. There is no middle. Some people would probably point out that 70 degrees is a middle. 70 degrees in Vegas feels like have a blow dryer in your face. The wind only makes it worse. Vegas is also very windy, just ask my allergies. So currently, I’m loving anything that makes me feel like I can breathe without sweating buckets. Today I wore shorts and it was glorious. I am loving my shorts and the new skirt I got last week. I also bought a different pair of shorts last week but I’m still on the fence about them. It’s also a tad hectic in my casa. We are trying a new schedule with how we do things and the first few weeks were fantastic and the past week or two it has just seemed like the new schedule is biting us in the butt and there are not enough hours in the day. I’ll keep you posted on how this schedule looks and whether or not we stick with it.
READING: Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis & Windwitch by Susan Dennard. I have not been devoting as much time as I would like to lately to reading. It makes my heart a little sad. Windwitch is the second book in a series by Dennard. I read the first one in a couple of days, I couldn’t put it down. I haven’t picked up this book in a minute. I really should, I want to get to the third book that she just published. Hollis’ book has me feeling things I didn’t want to feel but I needed to. I’m like 8 chapters in (I think) and I love it so far. I’m also about to start 100 Days to Brave by Annie F. Downs. I already went through this once but I want to do it again and do it right this time. Each day has a new way to try out being brave and I want to stick to it. Maybe I’ll even write about it. Challenge time!
VIDEO: We watched a lot of hockey this week. We had to end our season when the Knights were defeated by the Sharks in Game 7 on Tuesday. So now I will be cheering on the Avalanche in hopes they knock the Sharks out of the playoffs. Golden Knights forever though. We are also watching Game of Thrones every Sunday and we are slowly catching me up during the week. I have been told what has happened but it is always different to see it happen. We also watched Avengers End Game and the movie broke me.
OTHER: I’m currently amping myself up because I AM PUBLISHING A BOOK. This has been a dream of mine for YEARS. YEARS. The day has finally come and I am publishing a journaling devotional. You can preorder the ebook here. I’m also getting excited about a week break from school in between terms. This isn’t a usual occurrence in my experience. Usually my term will end on a Sunday and the next term picks up the following Monday. I love my school and the 8 week terms but getting a break for whatever reason is very welcoming right now.
COOL STUFF: I am also trying to be more active on my Instagram. Go follow me and say hi! Sometimes, I’ll post stories about the silly stuff that happens in my life. Some people say I’m funny when I do my talking stories, at least my friends like them. That’s all that matters, right? (This is going under cool stuff because Instagram is cool and I am trying to be cool.)
Well, this is gonna wrap it up for the first edition of Currently! I had fun writing this post so it will definitely be coming back. Sometimes it’s nice to just chat about small stuff.
