i've decided...

+ i'm in control of this semester. it's not in control of me. and i will do everything in my power to succeed. even taking september off of blogging.

+ afternoon coffee must be used in moderation. sometimes all it does is produce evening anxiety. 

+ there's a balance between being self-sufficient & leaning on family & friends. swinging too far in either direction is detrimental. 

+ there is such a thing as being too organized. 

+ sometimes all you really need is a hot shower. 

Tell me: what have you decided?

I've decided that I like you :) Just started following a couple days ago, so I was a little bummed to see that you're taking September off. I completely understand, though! School has a way of demanding undivided attention sometimes, huh?

I hear you when you say that there is such thing as too organized! Sometimes I find myself organizing and not actually doing the work for the things that I am spending so much time organizing.

exactly. and sometimes i organize & micromanage so much that it ends up exhausting me... kind of counter-productive! ;)

awww, thank you ma'am! school is definitely demanding my undivided attention... yikes. i got in a little over my head this semester, but things are already [just a couple days later] panning out to be so much better than i previously thought.

i never thought i'd be taking a month off of blogging, but i think it'll be for the best. the good thing is, it'll give me so much more time to comment on others' blogs, be more active on twitter, & get my thoughts together on this space! who knows... i may not even stay gone the whole month.

thank you for your sweet comment!

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.
