Currently… #sol16 10 of 31

After reading lots of slices that use this format, I thought I’d give it a shot!

I’m currently‚Ķ

Listening to:

chill, techno music playing at The Montrose, my new favorite hangout in Tirana. Hello quesadillas, homemade chips, and guacamole!

Loving:

the Slice of Life Challenge this year. Even though I have so much going on right now, I don’t feel stressed at all. In fact, I feel energized by the daily practice of reflecting and writing.

Drinking:

fruit tea and water

Thinking:

about what I’m going to pack tonight for my trip to Thessaloniki. A friend of mine and I are leaving tomorrow after work, driving 7 hours to Greece, and staying through Monday. IKEA here we come! (Yes, we planned a trip to another country for the sole reason of going to IKEA. But, while we are there, we will also hit up a Starbucks to drink a Chai Tea Latte and go to a grocery store to buy cheddar cheese, goat cheese, and other foods we can’t get here. I also see tzatziki, baklava, and Greek salads in our future. Oh, and we’ll see something cultural to make ourselves feel better, too.)

Wanting:

more time in the day. Doesn’t everyone want this? Sometimes I just wish I could hit pause so I could get more work done, or slow down and binge-watch my favorite TV series or read a book, but still have time to do everything else I want/need to do.

Procrastinating:

the PYP resource room inventory, and subsequently the annual order. Why is it that I have tons of energy for work I want to do, but things I need to do, but aren’t that fun, are harder, and I put them off? Sometimes I need a fire under my ass to get stuff done!

Needing:

someone to do the inventory for me. ūüėČ

Reading:

lots of emails, fellow slicer’s blog posts, comments on my blog, PYP unit planners, What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell, and about to start Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.

Worrying:

that I’m forgetting something. With so much on my plate, I sometimes worry that I forgot to do something.

Wondering:

how Shaggers is doing. She went into labor today, but I haven’t had an update in a few hours. Hope she, Jeezy, and baby Shags are doing well. Love them!!!

Anticipating:

my trip to¬†Senegal to visit Melissa, T, and baby Reina during Spring Break (only 8 more days til I leave!).¬†I cannot wait to see them!!! And, Senegal is country #30 for me…woohoo, another milestone!
