Currently in August


...reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling and Bittersweet by Shauna Neiquist. It is my first time re-reading the Harry Potter books in many years, and I've flown through three books in four days! The final four books are two if not three times larger than the others, so they may take a while. If you haven't read them, I highly suggest you do!

...watching the online series Emma Approved. It is a modern take on Jane Austen's Emma with two weekly videos. I'v been following the series for several months, and I am sad/delighted to say it is nearing the big finish! Most videos are between 4-6 minutes long, and their sister series The Lizzie Bennet diaries is just as fun.

...trying to stay on top of my assignments. I thought I'd quit the procrastinating game after undergrad but, nope, it's still tempting.

...eating a peanut butter and honey sandwich. I may be in grad school but my elementary school standard is still my favorite.

...pinning fall inspiration. AH! It's just around the corner, can't you feel it?! Well, actually all I can feel is the Texas Oklahoma heat, so fall better hurry up.

...tweeting about the Blog-tember Challenge! The newest daily blog challenge starts next Monday! Read all about it and get the daily prompts here.

...going to Austin this weekend. A gal pal of mine is getting married next week so we're celebrating her with a bachelorette weekend over Labor Day! I can't wait!

...loving my apartment! A comfy couch, my own space to cook, and a queen bed to happily sink into at the end of the day. There are still so many details to put in order, and several boxes still in storage, but the next few months will have this place in shape.

...discovering more and more about this little town. It has its charms, you know? 

...enjoying meeting so many new people! Between the theatre department and YoungLife leaders, I've made sweet new friends all over the place! 

...thinking about going to bed soon. Oh wait, I have homework. 

...feeling achey all over. My lower back pain has returned in full force. Boo.

...hoping for a good night's sleep and a fresh start tomorrow. I'm taking things one day at a time these days. In the Word it says "My grace is sufficient for you..."  and that's what I'm counting on. 

...listening to The Undoing by Steffany Gretzinger. It's SO GOOD! Her worship album is already at the top of my list, and it was only released on Monday.

...thanking Mom and Dad for helping me move to OSU! While I was at orientation, they loaded up the Uhaul and brought it all here. 

...starting Doctor Who. Might not be the best use of my time, but it's so good! I finally get the hype.

What about you friends? What are you up to today?
