Reading: High Fidelity, by Nick Hornby. I've reread this book on more than one occasion, and I love it. I'm only three pages in, because I have things to do such as school work (which I should be doing right now, but of course, I am procrastinating). In a week, I will give this book my undivided attention. I speed read, so it should only take a day or so to finish it. 

Watching: The Big Bang Theory. I know, I'm a few years behind on the Big Band bandwagon, but when I caught it last year in syndication, I fell in love. Now, I don't watch it religiously, but whenever I catch it on the tube, I am glued to the screen. The relationship between Penny, Leonard and Sheldon is hilarious. I can't choose which of those characters is my favorite, because they all bring such great aspects to the show. I could write more, but I'll spare you. If you haven't seen the show, watch a few episodes. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Working on: a better workout routine. Liz and I were so concerned with running, we didn't really work out anything else. However, two weeks before the run, we both purchased Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. At the end of the workout, I was dripping sweat and wanted to die. I was so sore for three days after, too! Liz had the same results, and we decided if we wanted to make it through the 5K, we were going to put Jillian on the shelf until after we ran. Tonight, we will both be working out with our "BFF Jillian" - or "that bitch," as we reffered to her as we worked out on the elliptical last night.

Thinking about: the future. Work, school, relationships (family, personal, etc.) - this has all been on my mind. In order to not stress about it too much, I decided that I will only think about what is currently in front of me. Why put my stomach in knots for no reason? Its pointless!

Anticipating: the arrival of my Neon Yellow Jeffery Campbell Lita's from Nasty Gal. Erich had promised these to me months ago (he owed me a pair from Christmas, but the ones I had wanted sold out before he could get them), and he finally ordered them for me. They were the last pair in my size - nothing like the last minute, right?

Listening to: Maroon 5 - Payphone (feat. Wiz Khalifa). I have been a Maroon 5 fan for years, back when they had just signed to Octone Records. I remember when they could wander the street outside of The Downtown (a popular venue on Long Island that closed a few years ago), and they weren't recognized by fans. Those were the days! Even though they are huge now, I don't think I'll ever stop loving them.

Eating: clean! After a weekend of indulgence (I ran my first 5k, so I allowed myself a pig out weekend), I am eating clean for three weeks. The only packaged goods I will be eating are nuts/grains. I'm also going to try and cut caffeine out, or at least to a minimum. I've cut caffeine out before, but its super hard. I have some Teeccino that I got for a blog review, so I will use that to help curb the cravings.

Wishing: the end of this semester would get here sooner than later! The spring semester always seems to drag on for me. I think its because of spring break - having so much time off from classes makes the remainder of the semester seem like an eternity. Although I'll be stuck taking summer classes, I am ready for this semester to be done with.


  1. I love rereading my favorite books. I always feel like I learn something different each time I reread a story.
    And I LOVE "The Big Bang Theory". I was late to the party, too, but I'm trying to get all caught up because it's a hilarious show!

    1. Nice! Is it weird that I have a teensy crush on Leonard? :)
