I absolutely love writing posts for my “Currently, I Am” feature. It’s such a personal thing to do – to let someone into your real life – but I really enjoy putting together and summarising what I’ve been up to. Not only does it help me appreciate my life more, it also lets you know what hobbies, interests and memorable moments have happened in my life. I guess you like to know this, right? You follow me for a reason! I’ve always been pretty personal on my blog, anyway. It’s like a giant diary to share with friends I met along my blogging journey.
My last catch-up post was, coincidentally, a month ago today. This is a fairly irregular feature but a happy coincidence nonetheless! A lot seems to have changed since then. But, it’s one of those months that’s only kind of changed inside of me… you know? It’s hard to explain! Even though I’ve felt like a lot has changed, maybe to an outsider I’m just doing the same old.
Let’s get cracking then! What have I been up to lately?
Currently, I am feeling…
…a lot of things, actually. I’m happy with my home, my life and how perfect Matthew really is. I fear that all of that could change in the next couple of years though. I’m nervous and frightened about what my future holds after yesterday’s terrible news that Britain will be leaving the EU. It was a horrendously rushed and violent period of our history that brought out the worst in so many people. A lot of ‘vote Leave’ supporters are already starting to regret their decision.
Currently, I am watching…
…Orange is the New Black, season 4! We’re only on episode 6, so no spoilers please. We’re both enjoying it so far though. To be honest, it’s just really refreshing to see so much diversity in one show again. I have a feeling that’s actually going to be problematic though, considering the recent ‘woopsie’ that Piper just made… we’ll see. Game of Thrones finale tomorrow too! I can’t even talk about it… I’m so excited and nervous and ahhhhh it’s so good.
Currently, I am reading…
…The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R Carey. I started this last year but only read a couple of chapters. I was going through a terrible patch and I couldn’t find the concentration to do much more than crawl out of bed in the morning. However, I’m feeling good recently and I’m so glad I went back to this book! It’s absolutely incredible! I’m just over half way, and I think this may be one of my favourite books of all time… I hope that’s not a premature statement. I guess if it has a terrible ending that could all change. The writing is just amazing though. I don’t see it letting me down!
It’s been kind of a running joke in these posts about how little I’ve read recently… that’s changed. I can’t wait to smash through my fantastic list of books!
Currently, I am playing…
…not a lot really and not very often. I’m enjoying work a lot, which is obviously fantastic, but it means I’m mentally exhausting myself every day. When I get home, I don’t really want to do anything other than snuggle up on the couch with Matt or read my book. I’m still technically in the middle of Elder Scrolls: Online (which I think I may jump on after I finish writing!) and if I have a spare half hour in the evening, me and Matt are still loving Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Currently, I am excited for…
…omg, a lot. July is going to be an incredibly busy and exciting month! At the beginning of the month, me and my mum are going to stay in a beautiful country house for the night which we’re both really looking forward to. Matt also graduates soon! In the same week, he graduates from university and turns 22. Busy week. I’ve took a couple of weeks off work to celebrate everything plus to have a little ‘summer holiday’. We’re planning on bus hopping around Yorkshire for a week like we did last summer. I can’t wait!
