A blog about travel, books and navigating your twenties in one piece

Sunday, 27 April 2014



Reading: I'm slowly making my way through Cannery Row by John Steinbeck (even though it's only 148 pages long!). My Dad bought me this a few years ago, and has been reminding me to read it ever since. I've finally got around to starting it and although I'm not that far in, I have to say I'm not too sure I really get it. I'm definitely going to try and finish it because it's so short that I feel like I should really give it a chance but at the moment I'm not predicting to come away thinking it's a great book and telling everyone I know that they must read it immediately like I do with some books.

Eating: A variety of things. Apples, creme eggs, sausage sandwiches, paninis, salmon - not all at the same time! It's crazy how some days I can be incredibly healthy and others are just designated 'fat days', especially in the exam period. For some reason I've been thinking about it more than usual recently and once I've got my exams out the way I really want to get in some more exercise and start running again. It frustrates me a lot that during the exam period I hardly ever feel like I have any time when, of course, I could make some time to go for a run, but I don't feel like I can when I'm revising, it's a strange and illogical feeling but I'm hoping to rectify it when exams finish with lots of healthy eating and exercise.

Thinking about: Summer. I feel like I say it all year round but I just can't wait for summer. For eight weeks of relaxing and recharging for next year. After such a work-heavy year I'm determined to make this summer the best one yet and thinking about that helps to keep me motivated about the rest of the year. Also I've been thinking about time, which I've written about before. It's definitely a cliche but I long for there to be more hours in the day. To be able to just be more, but also go and spend time with loved ones, write more and study. I feel like time is passing me by more and more and that scares me and makes me a bit sad. I guess I just have to try and soak up every moment, appreciate the present and stop living in the past or future.

Listening: Ever since Sara Bareilles' new album The Blessed Unrest was released I haven't been able to get it out of my head. I love every song. There's such a mixture and one for almost every mood I'm in that are perfect to sing along to, especially in the shower. And of course the Frozen soundtrack.

Watching: One Tree Hill. I tend to rotate between Dawson's Creek and One Tree Hill among all the other shows I watch with my Mum. I can watch both of these series over and over and never get bored. So at the moment I'm on One Tree Hill and loving it just as much as I always have. I love the way that almost every episode starts or ends with a quote, and I really do think this show helped me to grow up - I know, pass me the sick bucket!

Loving: A lot of things. But right now, I think it's the opportunity to spend time with people. And laughter. There's nothing like it in the world; not being able to stop laughing because you find something so hilarious. For me that's 9 out of 10 times accompanied by my favourite people who make me cry with laughter on a regular basis, I don't know what I'd do without them.

The inspiration for this 'Currently' post comes from Megan
