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!
siddathornton said…
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 :)
siddathornton said…
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!
siddathornton said…
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! ;)

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.
wearing pajamas, just like I have …

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.
