Loving: My new phone. It's been four years since I had a new one and it's crazy how much faster these things are when they're new. I'm not used to how freaking responsive they are. I hope this one lasts me just as long as the last one or even longer. I'm trying not to abuse it too much but it's just too much fun. I can't believe it responds just like that!
Crushing On: So I just binged on the Step Up movies and my goodness, Ryan Guzman is pretty darn cute. And the best part? He's born in 1987! i feel like everyone is so much younger than me. I quit on Pretty Little Liars the season he arrived so I might have to catch up on that season alone. It doesn't hurt that his body is damn fine and that he can dance. it does not hurt at all.
Reading: I just finished The Wrath and the Dawn which i didn't expect to enjoy as much as I did. I wasn't even going to read it, but there it was and it was an easy read. I also finished PS I Still Love You which I adored to the highest heavens. I don't know if it'll be a trilogy or it's just two books. I honestly never felt that torn over a love triangle in my life. That was a good one.
I also read Spinster which I thought was really interesting in the way she wrote about her influencers as a single girl. I'm not quite there yet, but so much of her writing resonated with me. I don't know how to feel about it just yet. I'm also excited because I apparently can apply for a library card here. I'm still thinking about it because there's a fee (as I'm a foreigner) but I feel it'll be worth it.
Watching: I'm honestly feeling a little meh about television lately. Like I'll queue up my shows and then get lazy to watch it. Who is this person??!! It's temporary for sure. With all the summer shows coming back and Halt and Catch Fire and Hannibal back in my life, I hope I get out of this funk soon.
I have been very diligent with my Gilmore Girls and Charmed and Friday Night Lights re-watch though. Maybe that's why I'm not watching any current TV right now.
Listening to: Other than the glorious Florence + The Machine who's new album has been on repeat, I'm actually listening to a lot of my 90s R&B stuff. Sure, Spotify always manages to lure me into their pretty playlists with pretty covers but the R&B in the 90s was A+. I used to listen to this radio (!!!) show called Sunday Slowdown and it was the best. So I'm trying to recreate it now on Spotify.
Planning: my brother in LA asked me to make him a scarf so I'm excited to do it. I'm planning out the pattern (he wants it blue and grey) and I'm going to watch a couple of YouTube videos on knitting. I don't know if I can knit this already but I'm planning on learning for sure. I'm totally going to visit that craft store near my work. I'm so excited.
Working on: getting used to the new role. Since the last time I did this entry, I've switched to a new role at work and I don't know if I'll fully be comfortable in this role but it's definitely a challenge in a sense that I'm putting myself out of my comfort zone -- interacting with so many people again. So I'm working on my people skills again. I hope I pull through.
Anticipating: the next long weekend? My parents coming over was so much fun but also tired me out like crazy. I feel like I need a break from that weekend. It was tons of crazy times but also my body is not used to that much excitement. I'm so looking forward to just chilling and not doing anything, preferably with an extra day away from work.
Wishing: I have the money/time/patience to apply for visas. My other cousin is getting married in the US in September and I really want to go but I have to fix my papers because I wanted to do a little West Coast trip all the way up to Canada. But I'm lazy and poor and possibly might not get time off. I know I just need to bite the bullet and do it but we'll see. So here's hoping I man up and just do it.
