Five Things

In an attempt to kind of let you into my life a little bit more, I thought I would start doing these "currently" segments that many bloggers do. So what am I currently doing?


....Reading// I've FINALLY gotten into the habit of reading even just a page before bed and I'm so glad I am. Right now, I'm reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It's so good! I'm loving it! Also, for one of my design classes I'm reading The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp. Even though it's a "textbook" required reading, it's a really great book!

....Watching// ALLLLLL of my favorite shows have come back on TV like American Horror Story, Walking Dead, Finding Carter, and Are you the One?. But, like most of the country, I'm watching Scream Queens as well!

....Drinking// I've been drinking coffee like it's going out of style. Plus, since it's Halloween, I've been drinking a lot of apple cider.

....Using// I've been trying to optimize what apps I'm using lately. I'm super busy and I need to start tracking where my money goes since Kayla and I got Koda. I've been using the app Mint. You can set up budgets, and it gives you an alert when you're getting close to that budget. It's super helpful because if it's the 15th of the month, and I've already spent $15 out of the $20 I've budgeted on fast food, I know to slow down (or stop buying food). If this is something you think you need, you can download it here.

....Wearing// Lately, the weather has been completely up and down and all over the place. So some days I'm wearing a t-shirt and jeans and other days I'm wearing a sweater and boots! It really just depends!

....Listening to// Hello by Adele (obviously) and Demi Lovato's new album, Confident!

Now onto my five things for the week:

1 - New Jobs// I got two new jobs last week! Now that puts me up to three freelance jobs, a blog, five classes and our puppy, Koda. Yeah, I'm just a little busy...

2 - Halloween// It's Halloweekend! Right now in Greenville it's the calm before the storm. Once it's about 8pm tonight, shit's going to start hitting the fan. And this is not an overstatement. I'm actually not going out this weekend, but I am going to be watching a lot of scary movies!

3 - Hello by Adele// LOVING LOVING LOVING this song. If you haven't listened to it, do it now. Just do it.

4 - Carving Pumpkins// Today Kayla and I are carving our pumpkin! I'm super excited! We're also going to roast the pumpkin seeds, because we both love them!

5 - Worst Things About Halloween// Matt Bellassai is at it again. Just watch.

  5. Did you watch the Wicked City premiere on ABC? Its INSANE! I think if you've watched AHS you'd like it. And, of course, Matt bringing back the wine with Season 2. Freakin' love him.

  8. I am also obsessed with Scream Queens! I got a Keurig like a month ago, and I'm embarrassed to admit how many apple cider K cups I have gone through!

  9. All of the Donald Trump Halloween costumes this year have been so funny. I've also been devouring coffee like CRAY CRAY (but who can blame you with all the freelance work you're doing?!)
