Hellooo beautiful people! I thought I’d get back into doing Taking Stock posts again as a way to try and touch base, so here’s my latest one! Hope you enjoy!
Making: A vow to myself to blog more consistently!
Cooking: Nothing new, actually 🙈
Drinking: Tea, hot chocolate and water. If someone wants to send me drinks from Nina’s or Mugg & Bean then that’d be great 😂
Reading: ‘Fierce Fairytales: Poems & Stories to Stir Your Soul’ by Nikita Gill and ‘The Bluest Eye’ by Toni Morrison
Wanting: To really branch out creatively this year and be a more organized student! #unilife
Looking: For more authentic and unique content online
Playing: Around with different blog post ideas, because why not try new things?
Wasting: Way. Too. Much. Time on overly long afternoon naps 🙈 #guilty
Sewing: Nothing at the moment, though how cool would it be to be able to make your own clothes??
Wishing: That travel was cheaper. There are so many places I’m dying to visit!
Another wish is that I get to interview more people soon! Sending that message out in the universe…
Enjoying: The nice weather we’ve been having, though it’s been a tad too hot on some days. Summer!
Waiting: For Justin Bieber to finally make a comeback, and this supposed Jonas Brothers reunion to happen.
I’m also waiting for more musicians to come put on shows here in PE!
Liking: How many markets our city holds monthly, they’re so so so much fun to go to! I’ll be writing blog posts about them all sometime soon!
Wondering: What it’s like to have a job that allows you to travel
Loving: Cartia Mallan, Eva Gutowski and Ellen Fisher’s vlogs! Give these a watch:
Hoping: To get to watch more surf events in future!
Marvelling: At just how big our world is. Our own individual realities are just a fraction of what’s out there: places to see, cultures to experience, people to meet!
Needing: To find ways to generate an income. And get my driver’s license before my learners expires!!!!! #pray4me
Wearing: More grey than black. And tights more often than actual jeans. Who’dhave thought?
Following: More Australian Youtubers, they make the most interesting content!
Noticing: Interesting new trends like wearing scruchies as wristbands?? Where did that one come from??
Knowing: That how I do over the next 2 years of my studies is going to count so much towards my future.
Thinking: About just how fast the year’s going by already, and where life will find me 5 years from now! I try not to think about the future too much because it really does take away from the present, but a girl just can’t help it sometimes!
Feeling: Expectant. There are always good things, big and small, in life to look forward to! And I hope to always remember that.
Bookmarking: A lot of interviews. This one about Shawn Mendes was pretty inspiring. Also, TWLOHA’s podcasts! The only podcasts I listen to.
Opening: Up more pockets of time in my day to read, because I don’t read nearly as much as I used to. And I really want to get back into the habit.
Smelling: Popcorn every time I walk past a certain spot on campus. I could really use some popcorn right about now!
Giggling: At the whole Fyre Festival saga, I need to watch the documentary! I only heard about the whole thing a month ago while watching a Forbes video series about the influencer industry. Linking it here for anyone interested in watching it!
