Otherwise known as a currently post with a fancy title. If you follow me on Twitter you’ve seen a handful of tweets about me struggling to talk about real life in this space. I’ll sit down, start writing, only to get about halfway through it and find myself thinking “Who cares? This is boring.” I’ve never been one to share my life easily, as I’ve always found it much more interesting to hear about others. Each time I would hit a roadblock with my personal life posts, I felt more like I was the mysterious woman behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz. While I want my blog to be a place where life’s finer things are appreciated, I also want to have genuine connections with my readers. I need to feel like a real authentic person for that to occur and I’m working on it. Baby steps.
Reading…I’ll admit I haven’t been good at reading books lately. I’ve read lots of short stories and articles, but the book front has been slacking. Looks like a trip to the library is in order soon.
Watching…Finding Carter on MTV. I got sucked into this show during the summer and I love it! The second season premiered this week and it looks like it’s going to be full of more drama and intensity. I can’t wait. Plus, Max is a total man bun wearing sweetheart babe. That’s more than enough reason for me to watch.
Pondering…Grad school. I continuously go back and forth on if I should further my education and career plans. Everybody expected it as my next step after graduation and I kind of threw a curveball, “SURPRISE! I’m not doing that route. I’m going the artsy dreams way!” I’ll admit, I’ve noticed I seem to gravitate towards it when I’m stuck or unsure of my current life situations. Right now I’ve been looking at schools in the United Kingdom because if I’m going to torture myself for a few more years may as well make an adventure out of it right? I expect by next week I’ll probably be back to the anti-grad school mindset for a while and that’s the reason why I haven’t gone yet.
Eating…Annie’s Snickerdoodle Bunny Cookies. These things are like crack. They’re gluten free and made from rice flour so they’re pseudo healthy. Or at least that’s what I tell myself. Which is a good thing, seeing as I’ve eaten an entire bag by myself this week.
Needing…A pedicure and a massage. Really bad. A pamper day is in store for me it seems. Looks like I know what my tax return will be going towards.
Drinking…Starbucks Birthday Frappucino. I wish I had another one right now. Don’t basic shame me. It was delicious! I would gladly take raspberry whip cream on all my beverages please and thank you.
Writing….My 30 by 30 list. Has anyone ever told you I’m a dreamer? This list will make it clear as day. Go big or go home trying is my motto.
Realizing…I spend way too much money on concerts. My summer planner is bursting with random artists I’m seeing and the list is getting borderline ridiculous. I’m afraid to even write out the full itinerary on here for fear of the shit I’d get from family and friends. I know I have a problem okay? With both The Rolling Stones and Ed Sheeran announcing stops I should probably reassess, but live music makes me happy and I can pay my bills. For now my insane concert line-up will be staying.
Discovering…How great the Minnesota bloggers community is! We held a Favorite Things party this past weekend and it was a blast! There are so many inspiring, sweet, and funny women that I’m glad I get the chance to form friendships with. I can’t wait to see these connections grow. Plus, my succulents were a hit! I walked away with some new chocolates, a perfect nail polish color for spring, and lottery tickets. No word on if I’m a big winner yet.
Feeling…The downfall of single life. Yes, I’m one of those rare unicorn types commonly known as a single girl in the blogging world. I normally love and embrace it, but unlike the majority I could care less about being in a relationship during the holidays. I’m too busy. Yet when it comes to summer all I want to do is go on dates. There’s so many fun things that occur and sometimes it would be nice if dating was easier. It’s hard to meet people who aren’t massive creeps or all about the hookups it seems.
Looking forward to...Running outside. Would I jinx us by saying I think spring might finally be here to stay? Even though I don’t live in as close of proximity to the lakes as I used to, nothing beats a run outside with sunshine. It’s good for the soul.
Working on…A few exciting possibilities for this little space of mine! They’re still in the beginning stages of brainstorming, but I want Constantly Seeking Wonder to be always evolving and getting better. I hope bringing these ideas to fruition can do that!

P.S. – There was another time I talked about life on the blog, when I compared myself to Seth Cohen and our mutual lack of woo-ing skills.
Until next time,
