Every Monday, we share 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: An audiobook called “Essentialism”. Just started, but it’s already making me want to sell half my possessions. I’m usually a hoarder and now I want to keep it down to the essentials.
Yam: blog posts through my Feedly account. Bookmarked: getting from idea to reality, Blog Every Day in May, How to Restart a Bad/Annoying/Unproductive Day.
Pinky: I downloaded a bunch of new ebooks in preparation for the long weekend. I finished two books: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (I loved it and I want mooooore); and The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E Smith (liked it too!). Now reading Cress by Marissa Meyer, the third book in the Lunar Chronicles series. Thank God for my Kindle – otherwise I’d be lugging around an entire pile of books!
CH: Game of Thrones! I have yet to catch up on Revenge this week.
Yam: The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Andrew Garfield is just <3 and so is Dane DeHaan, who plays Harry Osborn. Yes, it’s time we talk about Dane DeHaan.
Pinky: I didn’t bring my laptop this time around so I wasn’t watching anything in particular. We went dolphin watching in Bais (about an hour north of Dumaguete) over the weekend! That should count, right?
Currently… listening to:
CH: A lot of random songs on Spotify. My new favorite discovery is a remake of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by a group called Strfkr 🙂
Yam: Dubai92. They usually play music from the 90s (and even the 80s, I think) on weekends.
Pinky: this song by American Authors called Best Day of My Life. We heard this song on the first day of our trip and wow, perfect beach soundtrack.
CH: To be done with school (for now). Going through my finals week (hell week?) and can’t wait for it to all be over.
Yam: to slow down and speed time. Not possible, I know, but there are days when I want the hours to fly by, and days when I just want to sloooow things down.
Pinky: a GoPro! Way out of my budget, but it would’ve been awesome to have while we were at Apo Island. That place is MAGICAL. So many giant turtles!!
CH: Friends from home. Living abroad is fun, but gets really lonely. A couple of friends from home are in town this week and I’ve been so busy taking them around. Tiring, but always nice to laugh out loud and see familiar faces from home!
Yam: all the yummy food I’ve had this week, including: cream puffs from Beard Papa’s, Indian food, teh tarik, lechon kawali (cooked at home), my favorite Southern-style sweet tea, and more.
Pinky: Dumaguete, Siquijor, Apo Island. Amazing, amazing vacation. If we had one more day we probably would’ve gone to Oslob to swim with whale sharks. Aaah, the Philippines is a great place to live in! All these really great destinations just an hour or two away via plane.
