'Til the Love Runs Out

Friday, June 27, 2014

So, I love One Republic, but I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I am totally, completely, 100% over "Counting Stars". I think the radio station that I listen to the most plays it at least 3 times an hour. Give it a rest, guys. However, I still really love the rest of their latest album, Native, especially these songs:

Love Runs Out by OneRepublic on Grooveshark

Something I Need by OneRepublic on Grooveshark

They just make me feel good and if they come on in my car, I am undoubtedly singing along. Really, the whole album is quite good, so you should check it out. The reason I thought to share these songs, particularly the first one, is because this first week of "pre-med school" classes has reminded me that this is what I really want. This is what I've wanted for as long as I can remember, and I will, in fact, "I'll be doing this, if you ever doubt, 'til the love runs out." The love just won't run out.

I had planned on doing a Five on Friday post, but the ladies who host that link-up are on summer hiatus, so instead, I've decided to do a "Currently" post. If you're ever stuck as to what to put in your own "Currently" blog post, Chrystina has an awesome list of verbs that you can use! I picked some of my favorites and used some old standards as well.

The current view from the lounge area at the end of my floor. Not super captivating, but there it is.

Reading - A book that I got for free from NetGalley! I don't know how I discovered NetGalley,but they provide digital review copies to people (like booksellers, librarians, bloggers, etc) for review. In return, you have to share your review/feedback, which I thought would be fun to do as a blog post once in awhile. Plus, I'm always looking for something new to read (despite the fact that my Goodreads list is... excessive, I am still adding to it!) The first book I was sent is called Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me: The Pursuit of Happiness One Celebrity at a Time by Rachel Bertsche. I requested it because one of the descriptions included a nod to The Year of Living Biblically by AJ Jacobs, which is one of my favorite books. I'm not very far into this yet, but I like the humor and the writing style, so I'm looking forward to reading more.

Listening to - Native (One Republic), Lights Out (Ingrid Michaelson), and a ton of comedy on my XM radio

Anticipating - Oh so much. Closing on and moving into our new house, finishing work on the 23rd of July, starting med school for real in August

Contemplating - The future in general. More specifically, med school and how it will affect my relationships (with others, as well as myself), my health, and babies.

Ordering - A lot of new clothes online. Well, a lot for me, anyway. Yesterday LOFT had 50% off everything on their site, so I picked out a black pencil skirt (since mine is 4 sizes too big now), two oxfords, a tie neck blouse, a sweater, and a dress. Apparently, the sale is still going on and it's also happening at Ann Taylor, too. Hurrah!

Watching - Scandal, Scandal, Scandal! Oh, and a few other things. Next Food Network Star, Black Box, and a lot of random movies on Netflix that no one has ever heard of, probably because they're terrible horror movies/thrillers, but... what can I say? I love them. Currently still NOT watching American Hustle, a DVD I've had from Netflix since April. This is stupid. I'm sending that thing back.

Wishing - That someone would come and pack our entire condo for us so we didn't have to worry about it, and also that there was a Starbucks in this building... but it's probably better that the latter wish hasn't materialized. Ooh, also wishing for pizza. Mmm pizza.

Trying - To "adultify" my wardrobe and style (in a classy way, not like, an adult-film-star way), worry less, smile more, read more, get 8+ hours of sleep, drink more water, and get back into the swing of studying for real.

Loving - That Ken is finished with the school year, that our mortgage is almost out of underwriting, that my brother is such an awesome human being, that I have the world's snuggliest cats

Hating - That Pam is moving to CT on Monday, that our mortgage is still in underwriting, that my dad won't stop talking about his stupid 3 week trip to Europe that I can't imagine how he's affording, that this office is freezing, that the fellow on service this week is ignoring my pages, and that Ken still has to work a lot of nights for Lowe's

Excited for - My after work plans with Patricia! I'm picking up a new bra that I ordered a few weeks ago, hitting up Loop to get some yarn wound into cakes, and then we're grabbing a drink and probably food...? Who knows where the evening will take us. I'm also excited for the fact that Ken and I are no longer going to Long Island on Saturday and instead we're going to the much closer, more fun party with people I actually like. WHOO!

So that's what's going on over here these days and this weekend. Oh, and somewhere in there, I have to study for my summer courses and take a medical terminology exam online. ::twirls finger in air::

What are you up to currently? Am I totally missing out by sending American Hustle back before having watched it? What drink should I order when I go out tonight? So many important questions. See you all back here next week... enjoy your weekend!
