Reading: Emily of New Moon. L. M. Montgomery, the genius behind Anne of Green Gables wrote this three book series about, you guessed it, a quirky orphan girl. That's about where the similarities end, however. It's a good, light read. Perfect for the quickly approaching and heavily dreaded finals. With this book, I can pick it up and put it down at will and it doesn't distract me, or require me to think about what it means. I'm really enjoying it so far.

Watching: The Voice. I didn't watch the first season, because I thought it was silly. I couldn't have been more wrong. It's so much better than American Idol, and the way that the coaches interact with each other is just hilarious. The people on this show are incredibly talented and I am so happy I started watching.

Working on: putting my schedule together for next semester. I've almost got it figured out, but registration is on Monday, so I need to get a move on. Hopefully next semester is my last semester of GE/core required classes.

Thinking about: how great it would be if my mom could come at the end of the semester. There are tentative plans for her to get a one way ticket to Albuquerque and then drive home to California with me, but nothing is decided just yet. There's a lot of moving pieces, so I have my fingers crossed that everything works out.

Anticipating: The Avengers movie premiere. I watched the trailer again a few minutes ago and I am so excited for this movie to come out! Superheroes are my favorite and I kinda love action movies, so this one should be fantastic enough to hold me over until The Dark Knight Rises comes out this summer.

Listening to: Lindsey Pavao's cover of Somebody That I Used to Know from the first live round of the Voice. I really like her and her voice is pretty awesome. She's got real talent and I'm so happy that *spoiler alert* Christina Aguilera chose to save her last night, although I loved Ashley as well, and was sad to see her go...

Eating: Nothing at the moment, but there are some really appetizing looking recipes that I repined on Pinterest that I'm dying to try my hand at. I'm not the greatest cook in the world, but I'm eager to learn. Maybe, with enough practice, I'll be good at it one day.

Wishing: that I was at home, sitting in the pool in my backyard, enjoying a cold drink and good company. We just got the pool last year, and now I no longer live at home to enjoy it. Sad, but I'll get over it. It will be there waiting for me at the end of this semester, which is so close, but seems very far away still!


  1. Dude, Lindsey Pavao is the girlfriend of the brother of one of my friend's from high school. CRAZY!!!

    1. Seriously? That is crazy and totally cool!
