the sunday currently, volume 57.

yesterday's rainy Starbucks Saturday adventure

C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .  

R E A D I N G nothing for school, all weekend, & it has been glorious. I had an ethics test on Thursday, & he decided not to assign anything until our next class. Win. And my A&P teacher has really slacked off, which is a God-send. He was assigning 200 questions to be completed in three days for a while there. That is not fun.  
W R I T I N G feels weird this morning. For some reason, I feel like I haven't written in a really long time, & I know that I wrote last week's Sunday Currently in advance, but it feels even longer ago that I wrote one. Time, why you so weird?
L I S T E N I N G to the hum of the ceiling fan & the click-click-clack of the keyboard. I'm still in bed. And truth be told, if I didn't have to write this post, I think I may still be asleep. As implied before, it's been quite the lazy weekend around here.
T H I N K I N G that I cannot wait for this semester to be over. That I cannot wait to visit NYC in a couple weeks. That I cannot wait to go home for Christmas. That I cannot wait to go get Starbucks Sunday upon completing this post.
S M E L L I N G nothing. I've been waking up with sinus woes as of late, & that pretty much means I can't smell anything, ever, unless it's in my face. A blessing sometimes, a curse others.
W I S H I N G I was reading a lovely book right now. My book-ban until December 13 may be lifted for my upcoming flights to & from NYC. Or perhaps I'll just read magazines? Haven't done that in forever, either.
H O P I N G to get the house cleaned - & I mean really cleaned - this week. That has definitely fallen by the wayside in the midst of this semester's work.
W E A R I N G a very comfortable, long-sleeved, v-neck shirt, which I believe is from Old Navy, as well as some sleep shorts. 
L O V I  N G the fact that I MADE AN A ON MY FIRST STATISTICS TEST. Y'all, that really did deserve all caps. I'm elated, ecstatic, excited, & all those other good E words. Now, just to maintain that grade.
W A N T I N G a tall, nonfat caramel macchiato & a lemon loaf cake from Starbucks.
N E E D I N G a nice long cardio + blogilates workout today, if I plan on eating the above. It's definitely been a weekend of indulgence, but I feel content & ready to get back on the healthy-eating bandwagon this week. I'm even considering doing a cleanse.
F E E L I N G lazy, but lucky that I've been able to be so this weekend. Also, feeling educated, since Justin & I have been watching a lot of documentaries on Netflix lately.

tall, nonfat caramel macchiato is my go to drink, although I've been mixing it up with a PSL now and then, can't wait for Eggnog and my Peppermint Hot Chocolate! Half of my love of the holidays is really a result of my love for holiday beverages :P

Oooh, your Starbucks selection sounds divine! My go-to is a tall soy caramel macchiato. If I need something to nibble on, I usually go for the chocolate-covered graham crackers, though that lemon loaf is definitely my top choice for the baked goods. So goooood!!! Super big congratulations for your A!!! You earned it!

I have been so slacking..and feel lazy too. But it's not like I'm sitting around...just doing other stuff. Hoping to get back into a routine...I'm sure when winter really gets here and I don't want to leave the house, I'll get that time.

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.
