Currently in March…

Listening now…

 

 

Guys. I am so very sorry for the lack of posts lately! Life has been nothing short of insanely busy…but in an amazing way. This month is seems especially true that life does not stop for anyone.

This is basically me dealing with life right now.

 

If you follow my Instagram, you may know that I have been struggling with keeping up with it all. I wrote a post about taking a little step back from the blog briefly to re collect.  I mentioned when something that you love (like blogging) becomes an “obligation,” it can be hard to keep up with it. And I always seem to feel guilty when I don’t post every week. This blog is pretty much my baby so when I neglect it I feel that neglect strongly. BUT- self care!

House Hunting. 

If you read my last Currently post you may know we have been house hunting… and if you have ever bought a house, you may know just how time consuming this process is. (But fun and an adventure, as well!)

We have seen some pretty wild stuff while hunting….

……..Literally- wild.

 

So we went to see a home last weekend that had a neighbors chickens behind the yard. We started out by saying “awww, they have chickens-how cute!” Until we saw this turkey come out of nowhere. He was especially feeling me and ran towards me and backed me into a corner- Frankie and our realtor were in front of me blocking me. I don’t think Mr. Turkey wanted new neighbors.

Angry Turkey will keep you from selling your home

 

Update: We have officially put in an offer on this adorable little Cape Cod home as of today- please wish us luck and pray. I am so in love with it but also trying not to get excited as there are already multiple offers on the table.

Currently Celebrating…..Life. 

 

 

Also if you saw my Instagram you may know that I wrote about my mom having a very close call on her big birthday, March 19th. They were traveling on a 3 lane highway in the left lane when ice started coming off of a truck in front of them. My mom’s boyfriend tried to move lanes, but the ice kept coming and this time in a huge chunk of at least 3 feet straight into their windshield, blowing it out completely. They drove 5 miles with no windshield in the dead of winter, covered in shards of glass, with the heat up all the way, trying to flag the truck driver to pull over as he was trying to escape! They eventually got him to pull over with the cops on their way. This driver was let off with NOT EVEN A FINE. I am still in disbelief at the complete  Thank God everyone was okay- Jon walked away with a scratch on his arm and that was it.

 

Currently Loving…

 

Bullet Journaling. 

 

You guys have heard of this, right?! You know I loved my Happy Planning, but I just couldn’t stay consistent with it…Bullet Journaling offers a lot more freedom so we will see. So far I am really loving it. There are SO many resources online to help you and you can really make it your own.

What are your currents this March?

Currently in March

Listening now…

March has been a busy month! Honestly, I have been very busy lately and that is why I have not had as much time for blogging.

I did not even get to a “Currently” post in February. Check out my last Currently in January post to see what I was up to back then…

But if you live anywhere where this Nor’easter Stella storm hit, then you may be like me, and currently dealing with this…

Currently doing…

I am currently doing a million things at once right now, hence why blogging is once a week at the moment, here’s why! 🙂

ems birthday.jpg

Birthday celebrations for a friend were had this weekend!I left my house, hooray!

School:

Right now I am working towards an Animals & Public Policy certificate which is very focused on Animal law, Policies affecting animal laws, nonprofit administration, etc. I am still figuring school out but I think this is what I am really feeling- the skills needed to work in the animal nonprofit world- I hope! I am also considering a masters in Nonprofit Administration and would like to take both the certificate and classes for that, but school is a ton of work, time, money, etc. It is very hard to go back to school once you are working full time and paying loans and other bills- hoping I will figure this out slowly but surely…:)

Vacation Planning:

vaca

Frankie and I are planning a big trip (his first time out of the country) and we are seriously looking at Santorini, Greece.  Guys, I have wanted to go to Greece ever since I saw the first Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie which was filmed there. (Which was actually filmed in Santorini) We are waiting for his vacation time to be approved before we can book, but we are stoked! Has anyone reading this been? If so- recommendations?!

Awesome reasons to travel to Greece: (Based on my research)

  • Safe to travel to
  • Economically struggling at the moment, so cheaper goods
  • Exploring ruins! Right up my alley… so much history and things to learn here.
  • The scenery-the cliffs, beaches and blue water, blue rooftops in Santorini, the food, sunsets of Oia (or so I’ve read…)
  • Amazing Greek hospitality is something I have read a lot about
  • Greek food!
  • Greeks love to celebrate life

Time to start learning Greek language….

Currently watching…

This is Us.

I promise you you will not be disappointed. Every single episode I cry. That good-hearty, damn I needed that-type of cry. I think it comes down to the show being about the core of family, love, loss, meaning of life, and purpose. It’s just so good, you have to watch it for yourself!

Currently reading…

When I do have free time, I have been reading…

I am not as obsessed with this book and have been taking longer to get through it than when I read my recent faves, “Behind Closed Doors,” “The Memory Box,” and “It Ends with Us.”

It’s good so far and follows the story of an ex couple, recently divorced, whose daughter Anna goes missing.  I have not gotten very far but it seems to shift between their lives and search for her and the kidnappers vague story of taking her…

Currently playing…

I recently picked up a Nintendo 3 ds with my Amazon gift care and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I used to have this game and played obsessively, then sold my ds because I needed money at the time, then immediately regretted it and missed checking on my town and my villagers. (I realize I am strange, by the way) Plus there has been an update since then that allows you to scan cards into the game with certain villagers and you can ask them to move into your town.

Anyway, I have been reconnected with AC New Leaf!

For those of you who don’t know, Animal Crossing has been around for awhile. I used to play back when I had a gamecube…

It is a game where you control your town as mayor and work to make it better- creating new public works projects and ordinances and meeting and creating relationships with your villagers (who happy to be really cute animals who talk to you.)  You can work on your house-paying off your loans and decorating, earning money to do these things by catching bugs, fish, and shaking trees for fruit and selling them. The seasons change in the game too, and there are frequently events and holidays, following real world time.

Does anyone out there play?

I also want to pick up Pokemon Moon…
