Presently Speaking

Feeling: Sad and Hopeful at the same time. Sad because reliving this year has made me realize just how unhappy I was this year. So many amazing things happened to me, I graduated, I visited Turkey, I passed the Bar, and I got a job, but for about 90% of this year I was sad. And the fact that I was sad for so much of this year while all those wonderful things happened makes me even more sad. I’m hopeful because perhaps 2015 will be better, that’s hope right? Faith in the future. 

Reading: The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin. It was wonderful book but I felt conflicted the whole way through, the love triangle rubbed me the wrong way. I felt like I needed to punch both Bay and Sisi throughout the entire book. 

Listening to:  Taylor Swift 1989. It’s been on repeat for the past month… “I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.” Basically my new motto. 

Thankful for: My mom. She cleaned my apartment, washed my dishes, did my laundry, and took me to dinner before she left Dallas. She’s an amazing woman. 

Thinking about: the past year and how sad I’ve been…

Eating: Soup! It’s freezing and nothing warms me up like piping hot chicken noodle or tomato bisque! Yummy! I might need to add a grilled cheese now…

Watching: Downton Abby! I bought the season pass and watched the first episode of this season (!!!) and I cannot wait for the whole season to be released! 

Loving: my job! I love my job and I love that I love my job!

Looking forward to: popping a bottle of champagne tonight to welcome in 2015

What’s up with you?

    I’ve been beyond obsessed with Taylor Swift as well (plus, its the perfect breakup music, which I’m currently experiencing :/) Hope you have an AWESOME 2015!
