Currently | take 2

So it took a little bit longer than I intended to take to write another one. Maybe I set too lofty of a goal. haha
Never the less.. here we go. This is what I’ve been currently…
…working on: Packing and preparing for the sun! Off to Meh-Hi-Ko with a group of young adults from my church, then hanging out in San Diego for a couple days. Mexico will be packed full with activity after activity – hanging out at the Tijuana dump and doing food hampers and ‘dance’ classes for single moms, and San Diego I have absolutely nothing planned. oh Adventure..
And here’s a beautiful song in honor of my trip…
…anticipating: my little sister graduating! Such a weird feeling. My baby sister isn’t in high school anymore. I really should stop calling her my baby sister.. but old habits are hard to break. I had the privilege of taking her grad photos, and we had so much fun together. She’s all growed up(not to mention drop dead GORGEOUS!)

…obsessing over: Aerial Acrobatics! I started taking a class on Aerial silks 4 months ago, and obsessed seems to be an understatement! It is the most thrilling, adrenaline pumping, kick in the pants, and I love it!  I’ve already mapped out my entire future, and plan to run away to the circus within the next year.. If you don’t hear from me for a significant amount of time at any point, you’ll know where to find me.
I should bring my camera to class sometime to capture some of the beautiful things that the girls I spend time with are achieving. Until then, here are some fancy(not mine) photos.
…eating: my weight in butter chicken. I literally think of any excuse to ‘forget to being a  lunch to work’ so I can go to the stinking best Indian food place IN THE WORLD(location remains a secret unless you want to go there with me)! I eat it at work, while driving to dance recitals, to kill time before having to be somewhere… I can’t help it. it’s just so good.
I made it for the first time last week with this recipe with a few adjustments ( 1.5 cups of coconut milk and 1.5 cups of almond milk instead of 3 cups of heavy cream, coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, and it calls for a cup of butter which I made it with, but it was a little excessive! you could probably get away with a half cup):
mmmm Butter Chicken Chunga Hai!

…dreaming: about ALOT actually… A bunch of business ideas(rebranding, expanding, creative a wedding vendor network), and a bunch of personal goals…

…listening to: A new obsession that I have found.. Jenny and Tyler..

…laughing at: the fact that I pick up other peoples laughs WAY too easily! i bet people get annoyed of hearing own laughs literally echoes back at them..

…wishing: I was in shape enough to have done tough mudder this year. It looks like the most torturous, horrible, energy sucking, scar creating event, but oh what a challenge. Seeing people post photo after photo on Facebook makes me sad that my lungs hate running more than my will currently does.

…Learning: to slow down.. Enjoy life instead of packing it full of activities that only wear me out.. Learning to enjoy the many many beautiful things God has placed around me..
Have a happy 4th of July!

Currently | Take 1.

Tanis of Tanis Katie Photography puts these out every month, and every time I read them, I get really jealous because I think it’s the coolest idea. So, I got up the courage to steal it, and adapted it a little. But I’m hoping to do these regularly!

Here we go. This is what I’ve been currently…

…obsessing over: Noise Trade!!!  I’ve finally gone from Songza to iTunes on my computer at work, and I’m LOVING the new music I’ve gotten! The beautiful Makaela Peters introduced me to and I might be addicted. Cody Fry is my favourite artist that I’ve found through there. And you all should download his CD because it’s free..!

Best song..? Stop Breathing!

oh, or this one…

…working on: that horrible t word… t..t…t..taxes…. It’s almost a cuss word… Turns out last year I was incredibly naive as per what to save and what not to, and I kept all my useless bills and threw out anything of importance. Yuck.
…thinking about: The fact that I am 50 times more organized that I’ve probably ever been in my life! Organizing my client meetings, and work schedule and social events and family ‘gatherings’ and language class(Punjabi. woot!) and gym schedule and youth schedule and I’m not even stressed about it! Props to me!
…eating: I found the BEST cake recipe EVER!!! Chocolate Dream cake with Oreo cream cheese filling… It’s so good that I actually made it twice in the last week because it doesn’t stay in my house..!
Here’s the recipe: (let me know if you bake it!)

…dreaming: Sun. Heat. Driving with the window rolled(yes, manually rolled) down and music blaring and singing on the top of my lungs. Not having to wear a sweater over every shirt I own. I am quite excited for goose bumps to not be a normal accessory on my arms!

…wishing: a gym membership didn’t cost so much money. Turns out I’m more afraid of commitment than I thought, and month to month membership to Goodlife fitness is $72 a month….? Oi. I could build my own full size, fully-functioning gym out of popsicle sticks for that price!

…listening to: I know I already posted about music, but another artist that I’m currently obsessed with is Chris August! Another find for me has been his unreleased(..!) album and it’s free! Please get hooked on his melodic voice and sweet lyrics like I did!!

…Learning: Rest is a fantastic and MUCH needed thing. And not just any rest. Waiting on God and regularly spending time in his presence. I have been overly busy and stressed out to the max the last couple months, and my lack of ‘resting’ and waiting on God made me burn out, and I crashed hard. Busyness isn’t a bad thing. But for me, the combination of being busy and not giving myself time to rest and lean on God for my strength, that is lethal.

…laughing at: These little nuggets I’ve found on Pinterest… ( brought to you by Disney)
