Taking Stock: A Night of No Sleep and an Early Morning Await

Cooking : Nothing. Because I have no time ever, ever, ever. (I'm very salty about this.)
Drinking : Toffee-nut iced coffees with light cream. Please and thanks.
Reading: Just Kids by Patti Smith. It's a beautiful read, and I don't want it to end.
Wanting: to sleep, and craft. But, mostly sleep.
Looking: for apartments with a real cute boy. So exciting!
Watching: Parks and Rec. I am April Ludgate, and April Ludgate is me. 
Playing: the new Manchester Orchestra album on repeat, and as loud as possible.
Wasting: energy on things that won't matter much at all in the end, as per usual.
Sewing: not a thing. Which is a real shame and rarity. I need to get my DIY on!
Wishing: it were warm enough to swim. Or, rather, warm enough to wear my new swimsuit. 
Enjoying: working with my best grrrlfriend more often because we can chat about boys and ice cream and cute undies. While remaining completely productive and dedicated to our jobs...
Liking: my new tattoo. Scabs and all. 
Wondering: when this stuffy nose of mine will subside.
Loving: mine and Andy's new record player (shown above). And, the bike that he's been working on for me. I've got a good one, folks.
Hoping: tomorrow goes really quick, so I can catch up on blog posts/ the infinite pile of laundry that is currently occupying my room.
Marvelling: over the fact that I will actually be seeing Fleetwood Mac in concert this year. STEVIE. And, also over the "Palo Alto" trailer. James Franco and Emma Roberts forever.
Needing: my bangs trimmed again. Already. My hair grows too rapidly to be cute.
Smelling: the instant maple oatmeal that acted as tonight's meal.
Wearing: black, black, and more black. Always and forever. But, also for work.
Following: advice from my sister. She's a gem.
Noticing: my chipped fingernail polish. I don't know why I even bother.
Knowing: the list of things that need attention, but giving zero of that to any of them. Ooops.
Thinking: of projects, and words to write down, and, nostalgically/regrettably, the past. 
Bookmarking: vegan recipes, storage ideas, and the "American Blogger" trailer/discussions. Have any of you seen that? If so, what are your thoughts?
Opening: a new bag of chips. Snacks on snacks on snacks.
Giggling: over the "Magic Moments" videos that Manchester Orchestra has been putting out. Which are basically sketch comedy shows/ pop-culture parodies. They are hilarious, folks.
Listening: to lots of Nana Grizol, The National, Cold War Kids, and Emperor X.
Feeling: okay. Which is really okay with me.


  1. Gosh, what's that thing up there? It looks so "vintage-gy" haha. :)
