Reading: "Americanah" by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie. The last time I did a currently post, I was reading a different book by this author, which is kind of random! I am loving "Americanah" - it's about the experience of a woman that moves from Nigeria to the U.S. during college, and then back to Nigeria.
Loving: the Sorel winter boots that Phil got me for Christmas. It hasn't been a snowy winter here, but it has been pretty cold so I am glad I have warm, cozy boots to keep my feet warm on my walks to and from work! Plus, they are really cute!
Thinking: about chopping my hair off to my shoulders. I've been growing it out for awhile and while I like the length, I sometimes think it looks a little bit 'blah' so it might be time for a change. My hair appointment isn't until March 31st so I've got some time to think about it!
Frustrated: with how early I wake up during the week. I wish I was a better sleeper.
Feeling: under the weather as I am coming down with a cold. I hope it's short lived because I don't have time to feel sick right now as this is a really busy week for me.
Anticipating: spring and longer hours of daylight. I can't wait for warmer temperatures and more hours of daylight! This winter hasn't been too bad but it's been so incredibly cold lately and I'm just over that aspect of winter!
Watching: the next season of House of Cards when it comes out on Friday! Phil and I watched seasons 1 and 2 last summer so we are excited to check out the 3rd season.
Sad: that the show Parenthood is over. I loved that show so much so will really miss watching it. I thought they did an awesome job with the finale, though.
Working: on presentations for two conferences I'll be presenting at this spring. I don't mind public speaking but speaking in front of a group for 60-75 minutes is SO HARD for me, hence the reason I am getting an early start on developing my presentation content.
Grateful: that my dad's ankle replacement surgery went well on Monday. He's been hobbling around in pain for years so I am glad he's finally having surgery. They did one ankle on Monday and will do the other one in 3 months. I'm excited for him to be able to walk pain free by mid-summer!
Listening: to lost of podcasts, as usual! My favorites these days are Dear Sugar, BookRiot, and TED Radio Hour.
Wishing: it was easier to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. ;) I'm still wrestling with this question even though I've been working for nearly 12 years.
What are you anticipating, loving, and grateful for?
