the sunday currently, volume 43.



This morning I am popping in for a quick edition of The Sunday Currently. We are going to run out to breakfast as soon as I finish tapping this out. Then, we'll be returning home to clean the house (and I will be studying for a test that's happening tomorrow - this mini session is turning out to be extremely fast-paced). I'm hoping that by the end of today, we will both be feeling accomplished & rested.

C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .

R E A D I N G... ugh. Let's not go there. I haven't read at all this week. I guess the inspiration to read can leave as quickly as it arrives. 
W R I T I N G in my ink & paper journal a lot lately. It is amazingly cathartic & therapeutic. Time & time again, it amazes me how little I allow myself to really feel until I've written it down.
L I S T E N I N G to Alabama Shakes. So, so summer. In addition to the playlist I posted a while back, I have a huge list on Spotify of music that just feels like summer to me. Justin & I have been listening to it in the early mornings of this weekend, & I love that.
T H I N K I N G it's time to get in gear this week. Last week was a dud, honestly. I did just enough to get by, & nothing else. That's not the way I want to live my life. Alas, everyone has rough weeks. 
S M E L L I N G Mahogany Teakwood
W I S H I N G for peace.
H O P I N G that my dear friend Laura (and her fiance' Jonathan) had the best of times at their engagement soiree last night. I wish Justin & I could have been there, but I know they must have had a wonderful time!
W E A R I N G top knots upon top knots.
L O V I N G that my psychology classes are giving me a bit of insight on things that I myself struggle with. 
W A N T I N G Sweet & Savory to serve us a delicious breakfast. I've heard good things.
N E E D I N G inspiration. A test tomorrow, a project presentation Tuesday, & another project presentation Thursday... yikes. 
F E E L I N G angsty about this space. Overthinking, guilt over not writing as much as I'd like, etc. All whiny, all in my control. And I'm changing that this week.
C L I C K I N G this article, which Joelle shared on Friday. It renewed my faith in social media a bit... because, honestly, sometimes I hate the constant connectedness it allows. This man's words reminded me that it's a blessing that our generation has this ability.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend & making the most of Sunday. We're off to breakfast!
