what i'm listening to.

back in my old office, lindsey & i almost always had music playing. and it was always what i thought of as cutting edge music. how i miss that! currently, i share my temporary new office with numerous other people, so blasting the 'today's college indie' station on pandora is a little uncalled for. when i'm moved into my new office, though, i can't wait to break out some of the tuesday with L & L playlists of yesteryear, as well as create some new ones to send over to the other L. we are kind of musical penpals.

all of that to say, with a drive-time of approximately one song length (give or take thirty seconds) to work, i've been doing most of my music-listening while in the shower.

and lately, the pandora station has been set to none other than one, john mayer. 

but seriously, not only does john mayer remind me of long afternoon naps in my freshman year dorm room (or watching photo slideshows with jenny on our computers - complete with full commentary, or working out constantly in the lambright center), but the musicians accompanying mr. mayer on his station recall nothing but memories of pure high school, pre-responsibility bliss. 

which has inspired the theme of my next mixed tape cd, which has been requested by a couple of folks who are music masters themselves, back home. i hope they know: they're in for quite a treat. as well as a guaranteed trip down memory lane.

I was never a hige John Mayer fan but I just started appreciating his music. In fact I was going to see him at JazzFest this year...then he cancelled his shows :( I'm a little bummed!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
