When I saw this survey on Irina’s blog, I knew I had to complete it myself. It’s been a while since I last took a survey too…
…do with what I have. I don’t say this in a depressing way, but rather I like the challenge of living on a budget and keeping track of my spending. So far, I’ve been quite frugal, and have actually saved more money than I expected. It’s also a way for me to figure out what I need on a weekly basis, and I’ve been able to avoid wasting things this way. So far, so good
…crockpot-based dinners during the week, and not cooking on the weekend because I’d rather taste what LA has to offer.
…coffee with So Delicious French Vanilla Coconut Milk Creamer. Where have you been all my life??
1 tablespoon goes a long way! It tastes great in chamomile tea, as well as coffee !
…any running/fitness magazines I can get my hands on. I love reading them before going to bed, or when I’m on the bus driving to campus in the mornings.
Case in point: free magazines I scooped up from Vitamin Shoppe
…a step stool, so I can store more stuff in my kitchen cabinets. I finally got a seat cushion after a countless number of days where studying at the kitchen table resulted in a sore behind.
So cute, and so comfy!
…forward to seeing the fam a couple of times between now and the new year.
…music on my weekday early morning runs. That, and treating myself to Quest bars and coffee before starting the rest of my day are great motivators for me to get out the door!
…time when I get home after a long day. It makes sense to recap on the day’s lectures, but no. My brain immediately goes into lay-zee mode once it hits 6pm. It also doesn’t help that I instantly change into my PJs either…
…on hosting my girls in December for a week! I just need them to be able to coordinate themselves and find their way to LA first.
…in the mornings as the sun rises. You cannot say you lived until you do this.
…each day in this sunny, warm-even-in-November city. Being able to run in the morning without putting on layers—but I do want to breakout my armwarmers again!
…for classes to be done! I’m already planning (in my mind) what to do/where to go in the city and surrounding area with the time I have off. Perhaps I can finally get an OC trip in…
…these KIND Strong Bars that I got as freebies from this race. To be honest, they all pretty much taste the same (except for the jalapeno flavor, which tastes similar to the other two, but spicier), but that doesn’t mean they don’t taste good! They remind me of Nature Valley’s trail mix bars, except more savory of course.
Flavors: Roasted Jalapeno, Honey Mustard, and Hickory Smoked
…about where I should take my friends when they (hopefully) visit me next month. I’ve been urging them to make requests, but so far, all I know is that my sister wants me to take her to a “legit” bakery. I have a list…
…how I’ve been spoiled with free food, pretty much at least once a day, and at least 3-5 times during a week!
Some free food from last week!
…that my marathon training goes well. Right now it just seems like I’m running like normal, but come January when we start to hit the numbers beyond 13, I’m not sure how I’ll feel!
…how DTLA looks from the freeway. I need to remember to never take this for granted.
…see “Wanting”, above.
…cooked cabbage when I come back to the apartment on weeknights. I use it as a base in my crockpot dinners, and I’m glad my roommate doesn’t (seem to) mind!
…dresses on the weekends because between lab/school/running, there isn’t another appropriate time!
…the news, or at least attempting to. Since I’ve recently been caught up with things occurring in my own life, I’m waaay behind on current events. It now feels like I’m reading more about history than current events .
…how irritating undergrads can be (not saying they all are ). I live in an apartment complex that mostly houses undergrads, and it amazes me how they are so hyper all.the.time. Yeah, I was an undergrad once as well, but I don’t think I was as annoying (or messy, or narcissistic).
…that time is flying by so fast, and that this amazing year is almost over! I also know that I don’t want it to end so quickly, but that I at least can look back on the many posts from this year if I ever want to “relive” the life-changing moments that took place in 2014.
…about where I was two years ago: in my last year of undergrad, dreaming about something bigger, and where I (want/hope/expect) to be two years from now: only time will tell!
…content, happy, anxious, grateful.
…more blog posts. I seem to be behind on what I want to share ever since moving to the city! I also need to go back to writing in my personal journal, I haven’t touched it since I moved…
…emails through the phone. It can be such a pain. :/
…going to the gym with my Dad, my fluffball of a cat, and the rain.
Feel free to take the survey yourself!
