What a long few weeks! Whew! I’ve been completely swamped, but I’d like to take a few minutes to bring you a few things I’ve been enjoying recently. Part of the reason I do these posts is to remind myself of all the little pleasures life has to offer, and honestly, writing them always puts me in a good mood. Let’s get into it!
Early Mornings: I’ve been getting up insanely early for the past few weeks (around 4:30 or 5:00 am) and really enjoying a good cup of coffee and a chocolate croissant from Starbucks. I’m quickly becoming friends with all the baristas and all the regulars, and I have to say that I’m enjoying soaking back into the coffee shop culture. I’ve found a few new spots recently that I’m starting to frequent.
Writing Songs: I’ve been delving back into my guitar full force and working on composing some musical pieces and writing out some lyrics that have been swirling around in my mind for a while. It’s been really cathartic because I haven’t written anything in ages.
Obnoxiously Predictable, Trite Movies: I’ve been watching all those movies recently. You know the ones I’ve talking about: Pitch Perfect, Camp Takota, Step Up, etc. You get what I mean. Just movies that are funny and easy to enjoy. I’ve been just settling in during the night and turning on some light-hearted flick to put me in a good mood before I crash out.
Light Makeup: I have not been feeling that full-on makeup vibe as of late, so I’ve been leaning on the barely there, five-minute, slap dash style of minimal makeup. It’s a nice detox from the heavy looks — not that I do that often anymore, but still — and it reminds me of how nice it is to sport a fresh face. I don’t even wear makeup in the evenings or early mornings any more. I just put on a light bit for school and work and my volunteer stuff, but not for anything else really.
Less Diet Coke: Don’t laugh because I’m seriously reliant, and I’ve been trying to edge down the consumption of this stuff these past couple weeks. I have to say I feel a little proud of myself for it!
Music Theory: I’ve started trying to teach myself music theory as of late. You’d think I’d know it considering the fact that I sing and play multiple instruments, and yet I don’t! So I’ve been having a blast trying to learn it via the interwebs!
