Currently // August

 
READING · I've been doing an atrocious job at putting aside time to read this month, but on the days that I do actually seem to have my junk together, I've been thumbing through the pages of Fahrenheit 451 (the book I purchased while visiting Haslam's). I haven't gotten very far into the story yet, but I like it so far. It's interesting.

WATCHING · Near the beginning of the month, we binge-watched Stranger Things in about two days. Then we decided to watch it all over again (it's just that good). From the 80's vibes to the characters, I have nothing but love for this show. After that, we began watching The Strain. Basically one of the weirdest + grossest shows I've come across so far. The story line is extremely weak and the character development is nonexistent. I'm surprised that we made it through both seasons as quickly as we did. Our most recent find would be Wayward Pines, which is turning out to be another binge-worthy show.
 
LISTENING TO · I've been on an 80's-inspired kick lately (mostly synthwave). My husband introduced me to a few new artists + I've been jamming out to them relentlessly, but Dynatron has been on repeat more often than others.
 
DISCOVERING · That there's so much peace / freedom found in leaving everything (I mean every single thing) in God's hands. I've been doing a lot of that during this season. If a problem arises or something seems like it's not going to work out, I simply throw my hands up and thank God for working it all out. I don't have the time or energy to worry about things that are out of my control.

PLANNING · A day trip to Disney tomorrow with a very good friend who will be moving away in a few months! We're planning on tackling all 4 parks tomorrow Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios + Animal Kingdom. I know, we're crazy. We'll see just how much we can get through in the 14 hours we'll be there! The pricing was too good to pass up as they were offering $79 park hopper tickets for the family members / friends of passholders.

CRAVING · G and I have been doing very well as far as counting calories go, but I've been craving a big juicy burger from Burger Monger for the past few days. Geez. The struggle is real. I mean, just look at what they have to offer!


WISHING · That I was finished with the last portion of my GED testing so that I could go ahead and enroll at SPC. Even if I was only able to take 1-2 classes a semester to start out with, it would be better than waiting until G completes his degree. I'm about 30% finished with my prep book + I'm planning to take a practice test within the next few weeks. So, we shall see how it pans out!

FEELING · Content. Work has been going smoothly, G is loving his classes + fall is literally right around the corner.

PRAYING FOR · A fresh outpouring of God's presence in my life. I feel like my spirit needs a reboot.
