Oh goodness. I just posted on Sunday with an update on my reading plan, and it's not even a week later, and I've got another seven books of the Bible under my belt. Since Sunday, I have read Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habbakkuk, Zephaniah and Haggai. It's been a crazy week, but definitely worth it. And to think, that between now and the new year, I will be completely done? That's insane! I'm so excited though. I'm glad to be in the Word every day, and will definitely keep the habit up even after this reading plan is over. That's what's great about the Bible. No matter how many times you read it, you always learn something new. My next reading plan will be less chapters per day so that I can put more time into each word I read and really get into what it says and how it applies to my life. Two more books and I'm into the New Testament! (I'm a little excited, in case you can't tell, haha). Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I'm going to be working on homework (unfortunately) but I might be doing a currently post on Sunday because some neat things are happening in my life right now :)

28, 29, 30/66

Hosea, Joel, and Amos are all finished. The books of the minor prophets are much shorter, and so I get through them much faster. Tomorrow, I'll be reading all of Obadiah and Jonah. Each of these books are  focused on one specific subject, rather than a whole myriad of things like the books of the major prophets. These books have been slightly refreshing to read, because they're over so quickly. These are another three books that I have not read before. AND!!! I'm almost finished with the Old Testament! In about another week or so, I'll be in the Gospels, which are very familiar territory for me. I'm looking forward to it.

Well, Ezekiel was a tough one to get through, but I finished. It was very long, and parts of it were confusing, but it was a good kind of confusing. I learned a lot, and this was another one of the books I've never read before. It was a good experience. I also finished Daniel yesterday. The first half of the book is full of stories I heard in my childhood: Daniel in the lions' den, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednigo in the fiery furnace. The second half of the book was all the visions God gave to Daniel concerning things to come. It was cool to read familiar stories and get to see some of the details. I'm loving this and am super excited to keep going through.

Loving: Lots of little things. The weather right now is perfect. It's overcast and drizzly and cool and beautiful. I love fall, and it feels so much closer now. I'm also loving e.l.f.'s eyeliner and shadow stick that I just bought from Target. I don't really play with make-up that much, but every now and then I buy a new product and, while they don't always work for me, this one is pretty great.
Watching: The Voice. It started on Monday, and I'm so glad it's back. The coaches are hysterical, and really, I just watch the show to see them rag on each other. The singing is pretty good too, or whatever, haha.
Thinking about: This really adorable jacket that's at Target right now. I'm trying to decide if it's worth it/if I can afford it. I really love it though, and I might be upset if I don't buy it...Oh decisions, decisions, decisions.
Anticipating: Fall. I can't wait to start wearing boots, and scarves and cute jackets and I just really love fall, okay?
Listening to: A lot of One Direction, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato. My roommates love those particular artists, so it seems that they're always playing in the room. I'm not a huge fan of One Direction or J Biebs, but some of the music is just so catchy, so I'm not complaining. And I love Demi, so that part is enjoyable.
Eating: Whatever is left in my pantry. I'm just about out of food, but I can't afford to go grocery shopping just yet, so I'm getting creative with the few things I have left. Thank goodness I get paid soon.
Working on: Homework. I feel like I do it all the time. Between reading for history,  writing for Spanish, and the random other assignments I get, I'm swamped. It's okay though, gotta get that education, ha.
Wishing: That I wasn't so tired all the time. I don't know what it is, but I am just exhausted. I'm sleeping enough, I think. Oh well. I'm used to being tired, I guess.

So my roommate Sarah jumped on the 'Currently' bandwagon, which reminded me that I was going to try and blog more this semester, so here's a post to start off my week. And, I somehow always forget to give credit where credit is due for these posts. So, thanks to Danielle from Sometimes Sweet for the inspiration for these posts.

Loving: My living situation this year. It's one hundred times better than the dorms and my roommates are awesome. This is going to be a good year.

Watching: I just finished re-watching seasons one through six of How I Met Your Mother. I love that show, and I can't wait for season eight to premiere at the end of this month. I'm actually excited about a lot of fall premieres. The Voice and Glee both start next week, Survivor and The Office the week after that, How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory the week after that, and Once Upon a Time at the very end of the month. I don't know how I'm going to find the time to follow all of these shows and keep up with school and work, but I'll find a way, haha.

Thinking about: Lots of different little things, nothing specific really. I have a lot to look forward to and a lot to focus on, so I'm practicing taking things one day at a time and not letting myself get overwhelmed by everything.

Anticipating: Starting my new job. I have been hired by Albuquerque Public Schools to be an AVID tutor. I'm very excited to have this job, and am looking forward to starting. I also am anticipating a phone call from another job I interviewed for. I think I got that job, but I won't know for sure until I get the phone call. Hopefully the news is good.

Listening to: The greatest Pandora station ever. It's the Wicked Soundtrack station, and it has music from Wicked and various other Broadway musicals, Glee and Disney movies. I have this stuff playing constantly. I'm kind of a nerd, but I'm okay with that.

Eating: A lot of sandwiches. I'm responsible for my own grocery shopping this semester, so I basically just buy bread, peanut butter and jelly. I also have some pretty decent frozen meals, as well as honey wheat pretzels. Those pretzels are delicious paired with peanut butter and jelly. Pretty much, I like peanut butter and try to eat it on as many things as possible.

Working on: Balance. I have a lot of work for each of my classes this semester, and now I'll be working one, possibly two jobs. I also need to start a budget to manage my money and be responsible. I of course want to have fun and be with people this semester, so I'm going to need to practice excellent time management skills. This will definitely be a busy semester, but I'm looking forward to it.

Wishing: That I lived closer to home. We had a three day weekend last weekend, and I would have loved to go home for it.
