Every Monday, we’ll be sharing the ‘right now’ of our lives. Play along with us by using the printable we made and tagging us on Instagram (#ldmcurrently)! The free printable can be downloaded through instructions found here.
CH: Thesis things. Wah! Midterms are coming up and still so much work to be done with my thesis. #stressedout
Yam: Reading the novel How to Be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway. I’ve had this book for a while now, but I didn’t get to crack it open until recently. I buy books faster than I get to read.
Pinky: tributes to Television without Pity from recappers who worked there over the years. I loved that site and spent more hours reading recaps than the hours I’d just spent watching the episodes being recapped.
CH: New episodes of Revenge! It’s getting interesting…
Yam: Watching the first season of House of Cards. I watched the first two episodes a couple of weeks ago, then I managed to watch the next two.
Pinky: the new Captain America movie. Hellooooo, Chris Evans! <3 (Please excuse me while I swoon.) For some reason, after the movie, all I could think about was how I wanted wedge sneakers. And I don’t even wear sneakers, normally. Damn you ScarJo.
Currently… listening to:
CH: A friend sent me this long interview with Polish historian and journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski where he talks about his writing, history, and traveling. It’s a long interview and I just started! I honestly don’t know who he is but am interested to find out more…
Yam: Listening to Chocolate by The 1975. It’s one of the band’s biggest hits. Check out this live version of the song. I also have Settle Down on loop this week. (I was just a casual fan, but after I managed to catch one of their shows this weekend, that has changed. Matt Healy was all sorts of charming, too. <3 Hope I get to see them again!)
Pinky:this song called “Rude” by Magic! So cute and it makes me want to be at the beach right now.
CH: More days to get my homework done! So many sudden plans this weekend that I’m finding myself scrambling for more time (as always).
Yam: Wanting to jump in a swimming pool or in the ocean because IT’S SO HOT. Philippine summer, I welcome you with open arms, but this heat is so tiring and draining when you’re in the city.
Pinky: more Ovomaltine. Each spoonful like a party in your mouth. SO GOOD. Dare I say, better than Nutella?
CH: This piece by Elle Luna. Yes, it’s the third time I’ve mentioned her, but I really love her work and her mindset! 🙂
Yam: Loving the dinner I had with my good friend, K. It was long overdue, and there was so much to talk about! Over the years, I’ve come to understand the importance of time— time given to others, time spent with family and friends–even better than any material things!
Pinky: Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter account. This girl is my spirit animal.
