Making: A mental list of things I’d like to accomplish over the next few days.
Cooking: I’m not really one who cooks, but I do plan on preparing a few things for a family BBQ in a couple of days’ time. Even if it’s just these awesome peach caprese skewers (again).
Drinking: An espresso from a little cup and saucer I bought from Sicily.
Reading: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I’m not too sure about this one. Still around 1/4th in. And I found a grammar mistake. Tsk tsk.
Wanting: To make the most of my weekend.
Looking: At YouTube videos, as per.
Playing: Candy Crush Saga. URGH, YES, I’VE BEEN SUCKED IN. But I only let myself get sucked in after getting a bunch of proofreading projects done, so I’m a responsible crusher, if you catch my drift.
Wasting: Food. I realise I have a habit of leaving a bit of food in my plate, even if I thoroughly enjoyed something. I think that’s even some Japanese etiquette rule? But yeah, I should really stop doing that; it’s simply wasteful.
Sewing: Nothing, at the moment. I’m still planning on making a dress for myself this summer. It just hasn’t happened yet. The family sewing machine (which is currently borrowed by an aunt) is returning home over the next few days, so that will be my cue to actually give this project a go.
Wishing: For an even more productive summer. There’s still over a month left, and I need to do so much more. Mainly: more proofreading jobs, little projects (like sewing a dress), actually starting to write my Doctor of Laws thesis (and start a corresponding set of blog posts with my progress – like I did last year), preparing for my notarial warrant exam (next March), finishing off the summer project which is part of my Maltese proofreading course), and MORE BARBECUES WITH FRIENDS.
Enjoying: My blossoming proofreading business which gives me such joy and (yes, actually) satisfaction. I also get to read a lot of academic material which is a bonus; I learn about the most unlikely things.
Waiting: For next weekend when I’m off for a few days in Gozo with my two best friends, finally! There will be sparkling wine, I’m sure of it.
Liking: The Mary Lou Manizer highlighter by theBalm that I just received in the post today. It seems like it will be a fantastic product, and there’s so much of it. It’s on sale on feelunique.com right now.
Wondering: About what I’ll be doing tonight.
Loving: The Great British Bake Off. It’s back on TV, and while I’m super-sad that I’m not in the UK while watching it, it’s just simply exquisite television.
Hoping: That the next year will be fruitful and not too stressful.
Marvelling: At how it’s soon going to be a WHOLE YEAR since I moved back from England. What.
Needing: To visit the Topshop sale. Everything is probably gone already, but I’m hoping to find something awesome. I never appreciated Topshop enough when I lived in the UK.
Smelling: Like a LUSH solid perfume (Lust) a friend of mine got over for me from Italy a week ago.
Wearing: My pyjamas. Oops. It’s 2pm. This rarely happens, promise!
Following: A lot of people on Facebook. And Twitter. And Instagram. Hmm.
Noticing: That it’s 2pm and I should really put some regular clothes on and have some lunch.
Knowing: That summer in Malta is pretty awesome, even though the heat is often unbearable and things get sticky.
Thinking: About how I should spend the next 6 days. Lots of things and projects I’d like to do and finish, but not sure about when I should do what. Also, if I don’t plan things correctly, I’ll just lounge around with my pyjamas and watch questionable television shows online. Which wouldn’t be very good.
Bookmarking: This, because I’d love to present my freshly baked cookies in a lovelier manner.
Opening: My luggage and unpacking – just been on a trip to Sicily.
Giggling: Because my boyfriend insists on tickling me.
Feeling: A little gooey and loved up.
