Presently Speaking

Feeling: Overwhelmed. Law School classes, Clinic cases (I’m now Guardian Ad Litem to 3 different kids), and cases at the District Attorney have been taking a toll on me. And my sleep schedule. And not to mention my to do lists have been growing.

Reading: Well I just finished The Hive with the Duchess’ Book Club and now I’m choosing between 1 of 12 new books I have. I love that I have so many choices! 

Listening to: Katy Perry: Dark Horse & Roar. Add in a little Taylor Swift: Haunted & Last Kiss. Both inspirational and depressing. My mind and my heart are pulling me different directions. 

Thankful for: My mom. Being a Guardian Ad Litem to these kids have made me so thankful for everything my mom did for me as a kid. Also for the extra wake up call this whole experience is giving me. I know I am totally not prepared for a child and probably won’t be for a while. 

Thinking about: My bed. I’m so tired I just want to crawl under my down comforter and pass out at like 8PM tonight. Which probably won’t happen since I’ll be watching Downton but I’m sure I’ll be sleeping in tomorrow! 

Eating: Girl Scout Cookies. I bought a whole mess of Shortbread and Thin Mint boxes this past weekend with my mom and grandma and I am so excited it is Girl Scout cookies time of year! I stick my think mints in the freezer and force myself to ration them out! I’m actually happy to report that the rationing is working!

Watching: Downton Abbey & Sherlock. I got them on iTunes and the whole of Downton Abbey was released so I’ve been steadily working my way through the season! And this Sherlock’s season has been the best yet! The Sign of Three was probably THE BEST episode yet. I want to watch it again… and I will. 

Loving: The cold weather! There have been multiple days below 40 this week and I love all the layers I get to put on and that my coats and scarves are getting use! Please keep the winter going Punxsutawney Phil!

Looking forward to: My first weekend in my apartment since right after Thanksgiving! I plan on getting things done and knocking out everything on my to do list (see the Feeling paragraph) and spending some quality time with Netflix. 

What’s up with you?

    I am obsessed, obsessed I tell you, with Sherlock.
