the sunday currently, volume 49.




favorite breakfast lately

C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .  

R E A D I N G Elementary Statistics, today. That whole I'm not reading for pleasure until my classes are over thing? Yeah. That means I'm currently reading a math book. Prayers, please. Math is not my forte.
W R I T I N G TSC posts each week in September, & that's it. Read more about why here.
L I S T E N I N G to Justin tell me about the goings-on on le Facebook as I type out this post. 
T H I N K I N G that I really do need to get my stress levels under control. I've been letting my worries get away from me, & they've been manifesting themselves as a pretty nasty case of stress. This week, it is my intention to slow down, relax, & just do the best I can. Freaking out about every little thing isn't getting me anywhere.
S M E L L I N G the fresh pot of French Vanilla coffee that's waiting on me for when I complete this post. I woke up late this morning - at eleven - & jumped out of bed to get my post done. See? This is what the stress is doing to me.
W I S H I N G I had savored every last minute of my two weeks off. They zipped by, & now I'm in this stress mode. Y'all. I wish I wasn't complaining so much, too. 
H O P I N G to get my routine running smoothly this week. 
W E A R I N G the largest t-shirt I own.
L O V I  N G homemade smoothies, coffee, & tea lately. 
W A N T I N G a long workout in the gym today.
N E E D I N G to get this post up! It may not be 11:49 a.m. - like last week - but it IS later than I'd like to be writing this out.
F E E L I N G like my neck is sore. I'm not sure what's going on with my pillows, but something's gotta give.

Math is not my thing either...or Science...and the field that I want to go back into for a 2nd degree is all math and science...bah!


Hope you have a great week...look forward to see your happenings next Sunday!

Dude. I lovvveeeeee statistics. Can I take a vacation and be your study budy? I'd LOVE to! I hope you get your long gym workout today. Happy Sunday. :)

Taught college math programming, stats, and stochastic processes for the last few years and stats still make me go cross-eyed. Wishing you the best of luck on your studies!

thank you so much! i did my first set of homework last night, & i actually did much better than i thought i would. there's hope for me yet it appears :)

YES PLEASE. come help me! i'm hoping it won't be as bad as i'm building it up to be - i did my first homework set last night & did well. here's hoping!


annnddddd i got a FANTASTIC workout in yesterday. i'm sore this morning, & for me, that's a wonderful thing!

haha, you sound like me! i graduated in journalism, so i'm definitely an english & writing girl... but i'm going back towards science, hopefully in occupational therapy. so it's a total change of pace. i love anatomy & physiology, but math, not so much!


i hope you have a great week, too!

Stress definitely sucks. I try to create a restful routine when I get home from work every day that consists of removing all make-up, putting on comfy clothes, drinking water, and having quiet time. Sometimes a good book or Gilmore Girls gets thrown in there, too. :) Even when I let the weekend get away from me, it feels good to have a couple of hours of peace during the week.

sarah, i have to tell you - this comment really stuck with me over the course of this week. i'd come home, think of your comment, & do a little routine each night to relieve stress & help me wind down. i'm usually bad about leaving my makeup on well after being 'home for the day,' but this week it was off as soon as i hit the door, & it felt amazing. thank you for sharing this little piece of your day with me - it's made me difference in my life!

I'm so glad that this helped!! For me it was definitely all about just rinsing off the day and having a physical marker that said, "You are not at work/school anymore, and it's time leave behind whatever has happened today." It feels good to officially decompress at home. Here's to many more relaxing post-work moments! ;)
