Currently…

I’m currently…

Listening to a chill playlist including some of my favorite artists- Dermot Kennedy, Wrabel, and Sleeping at Last. It’s oh-so-soothing and the perfect backdrop for writing.

Loving the new Queer Eye episodes, my dinner of a veggie burger with paratha, and the fact that I’ll be heading to Bangkok to spend time with Callie in just 6 short days.

Drinking sweetened iced tea. Feels like home.

Thinking about how I’m going to pack for my summer adventure in only a carry-on. As a habitual overpacker, I just know I’m going to struggle to fit everything in under 7-10 kgs. I still need to research the baggage weight limits on all my flights.

Wanting to see all the new movies coming out this summer, especially Toy Story 4 and Aladdin.

Procrastinating my inbox clean up, lesson observation feedback emails, and a few other jobs. Weekends aren’t my most productive time.

Needing to sort out everything for my background checks in China, Thailand, and Albania. Ugh…wish I had gotten them when I lived there. Not my smartest move, for sure.

Reading very little this month. My reading life takes a nose dive in March, as writing time fills my free time. I’m currently in the middle of a few books, and I’m looking forward to finishing them up next month.

Worrying about how I’m going to get everything done before the end of the school year, which is a mere two months away.

Wondering if I should start one of the new books I bought this week before I finish the ones I’m currently reading. I am just so excited for my new books!

Anticipating my summer travel plans. Now that I’ve made my plans, I can’t wait to travel to all the places and see all the people I love. I know it’s going to be here before I know it, but 10 weeks seems so far away!

This weekend has been hard for me to decide what to write about. Hoping I can finish out the challenge without having to rely on any more formats. What are you currently doing?

Currently, I’m…

Listening to my This is Us playlist. Don’t they have the best songs on that show?? I could listen to it all the time!

Loving the fact that I’ll be on Spring Break in a week and a half! Linner’s coming to visit and I’m going to some pretty cool places that involve sun and sand. 🙂

Drinking English Breakfast Tea, my go-to morning drink. It has to be Twinings.

Thinking about all the things I need to still book for my Spring Break trip. I’m such a last-minute travel planner.

Wanting to go watch Beauty & the Beast (again) this afternoon. Such a great movie! Brings me back to my childhood. Oh, and the popcorn with M&M’s is a guilty pleasure, too.

Procrastinating lots of stuff…lesson plans, newsletter, and emails I need to return. Ugh…guess I should do this at some point today.

Needing to do my foot exercises today. I’m getting more mobile, and want to continue the progress I’ve been making.

Reading…well, I actually just finished a book last night. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon was pretty good. Now I’m looking for what I’ll read next. Any suggestions?

Worrying about whether or not my wounds will be healed by the time Spring Break rolls around. Currently, the doctor says I can’t get my foot wet. I sure hope they do, because it’d be a shame if I couldn’t get in the pool or the ocean!

Anticipating my new adventure…so much to do to get ready, but looking forward to this new chapter in my life!

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

I’m currently…

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. 😉

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!
