Taking Stock: Pt 2

posted on: 12.23.2014

Making: Art, and it feels so good.
Cooking: Low carb meals in preparation for all of the sugar I will have in T- 2 days.
Drinking: Coffee #1... meh it's getting cold.
Reading: Gone Girl and The Birth of Venus
Wanting: A pug puppy! I think I'll name him Admiral, "Meryl" for short :).
Looking: At the poinsettia plant on my table. I don't even like poinsettias #impulsebuy.
Playing: The Nutcracker Christmas pandora station. I wish I was a ballerina!
Wasting: Lots of meat. That sounds weird, but recently it's been grossing me out more than normal.
Sewing: In my dreams...
Wishing: Honestly, I am pretty content.
Enjoying: A free schedule, it's amazing how much life exists out of office walls!
Waiting: For Bear to get home, and he just left.
Liking: The Christmas presents I picked out for myself, Erik is getting me the perfect gifts this year! :)
Wondering: Why my Brita water tastes so awful, I swear the filter is sealed!
Loving: My new home, Manhattan Beach is awesome.
Hoping: My art takes off, I want this so bad.
Marveling: At the ocean and the concept of space, per usual. I am all over the place.
Needing: Well I could use a smaller kitchen table for our new place.
Smelling: The oranges on my table, citrus scent is the best!
Wearing: My pink PJs and a robe. Give me a break it's only 8:15am.
Following: My heart, as stated here!
Noticing: How dirty this computer is, I mean, it's covered in pink paint.
Knowing: A lot about nothing. < cop out response, I'll admit it.
Thinking: About all the errands I need to run today, oh Christmas shopping.
Feeling: Energized, ready to take on Tuesday!
Bookmarking: I still don't get this one.
Opening: Lot's of boxes, all-the-time. Uhhhh moving.
Giggling: At the fact that I am watching a show on dog intelligence and they deduced that pugs, well... are not the brightest. Quote, "Pugs really serve no purpose, other than being our companions".
Feeling: Happy :)
