Currently March 2016

March 17, 2016 in About Me / College

Hi guys and happy Thursday! Going to be sharing what’s currently going on in my life this month. Thank you Amanda for letting me share what’s on my mind this thinking out loud Thursday and the link up! 🙂

Current Book: Not reading anything right now besides books for english… but I tried starting the Cameron Diaz Body Book when I was on my vacation and quite frankly didn’t like it at all. In my opinion, it was too much “eat this food and do this and don’t have junk food blah blah blah so then you can love your body….” Basically I skimmed through it, decided to leave it with my Uncle’s girlfriend, and was like “F this I want a snack.” I am not saying that this wasn’t a bad read, it just wasn’t for me! I am not into informative reads because I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to live your life or be “healthy.” Loving your body is loving it no matter what- that’s if you are a size 2 or a size 8, if you eat a salad or a doughnut, if you workout or you take a long nap instead.

Current Movie– I watched the movie Room and thought they did an amazing job with it. I read the book, and I thought the actors did so well portraying the characters from the book. Definitely recommend the book and movie- such a powerful story!

Current Drink– Well, you guys already know this one… COFFEEE


“Behind every successful person is a substantial amount of coffee”

Current Favorite Songs: Fancy by Xaxier Dunn, Quesadilla by Walk the Moon, Gonna get Over You by Sara Baraeilles

Current Procrastination: Looking at classes to take for fall semester/organizing my shoes and closet lol

Current Excitement: My three best friends from home are visiting me this Friday at my college! So so so excited to see them and spend time with them! 🙂

Current Favorite Snack: Tortilla chips or yogurt with granola or fruit!

Current Favorite Meal: Breakfast will always be my favorite meal. Cereal, toast, and oatmeal is where it’s at in college. Breakfast always involves coffee too which makes me happy. Oh, and sometimes a ton of peanut butter and bananas… which brings a smile to my face. 🙂 I love sweet breakfasts over savory! Besides breakfast, favorite meal right now would probably be sweet potato sushi- I love it!!

Current Favorite Quotetumblr_nuty7r6xRA1rdk8fno1_540.jpg

Idk if this counts as a quote, but I really like this. It puts things into perspective for sure. I often get ahead of myself and stress over the small things or the future. I love this because it reminds me of what is most important in life; it reminds me how important it is to put yourself first.

Current Blessing– Reconnecting with my college friends who I didn’t see over spring break. I am so thankful to have such great people in my life and such genuine and kind souls. Love ’em!! <3

Current Want– To see and spend time with my parents and dog! I didn’t see much of my parents over spring break because I was in Florida for the week and they didn’t go, so I am really looking forward to seeing them next week for my Easter break!

Current Thing Making Me Smile: There’s a lot… blogging, my friends, my family, my Snap Chats, my friends Snap Chats… there’s a lot to smile about! Always finding the good in things even on days where I get in moods that I want to punch a wall for 10 min because those moods pass, and ya just gotta let them run their course without you actually punching the wall. Lol.

Current Obsession– My lokai bracelets!! My mom is a sweetheart and bought me the purple Alzheimer’s one before Florida. I always wear both of my lokai bracelets and never take them off. Also I dowloaded Spotify onto my computer rather than just having it on my phone so I am obsessed with that lately. I love finding new music!

That’s it for today’s TOL and currently post!

Now tell me: 

Current favorite music? Current want? Current thing making you smile? 

Have an amazing Thursday guys!!

Sending my love as always.

I’m also procrastinating my classes for next semester, and my current want is for this semester to be over. But then again I say that every semester! Also I’m SO happy you get to be reunited with your besties from home. That’s always a wonderful time and can’t wait to hear about it! Lol I hope you have an amazing day Lyss <3 xoxo

    Sweet potato sushi!? Omg why haven’t I tried that yet haha. Also, I loved both the book and movie of Room too! It was intense but the perspective of Jack made it more light hearted and cute. Have a great Thursday!

    • Reply Alyssa March 17, 2016 at 7:44 pm

      It is SO good!! You gotta try it. It was an intense movie, but Jack did add some humor to it. He did such a good job!! Have a great Thursday as well 🙂

    I am loving my second cup of coffee today.. so needed. Love the part in that quote about learning how to say no. This is such an important lesson for all of us. I definitely have a hard time doing this and I always want to please everyone, but sometimes it is important to say no for your own good. 🙂

    • Reply Alyssa March 17, 2016 at 7:43 pm

      Always need 2 cups of coffee 🙂 And it is hard to accept that we can’t please everyone, but once we do accept that; I feel like a whole weight is lifted of our shoulders. Thanks for reading girly!

    I want to see the Room, maybe I’ll read the book too. I have trouble finding time to read during school, but it’s something I’ve always enjoyed. Breakfast truly is the best meal of the day, I’m glad you’re getting to visit with friends!

    • Reply Alyssa March 17, 2016 at 11:09 pm

      I never have time to read during school either 🙁 Breakfast is amazing. I love it at all times of day haha. Hope you are having a good week girly!

    My current music was a playlist put on at work today called “Who Run Da World? Girls” and it had a lot of 2010 throwbacks. I think breakfast is my favorite meal too, not because of the food, but because I love the peace of the early morning…oh and the food 😉 Happy St. Patty’s day!

    • Reply Alyssa March 20, 2016 at 1:27 am

      Ah throwbacks are the best!! I love the peace of mornings too- and a nice warm cup of coffee in the morning of course hehe. Hope you are having a great weekend love!

    Room was extremely moving. I haven’t read the book but I think Brie Larson definitely deserved to win that Oscar. I just found out how to use the Snapchat filters so my Snapchat is getting revived! hahaha I feel so late to the party but I am amused nonetheless ?

    Current favorite music: My sister has been playing the Hamilton soundtrack during car rides and I can’t get it out of my head! I’m so hoping they come to Dallas this year!
    Current want: a Spring Break extension. Not ready to go back to school! ?
    Current thing making me smile: catching up on Modern Family with my family hehehe

    • Reply Alyssa March 20, 2016 at 1:26 am

      Hahah the snap filters are awesome!! Ah I love Modern Family! Hope you are having an amazing weekend Kaylee!

    Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day too! It makes me a *sort of* morning person 😉

      Hahah I feel the same way about breakfast… also involves coffee which we both love 🙂 xoxo

  • Reply Emily March 21, 2016 at 2:36 am

    So I’m curious about ‘The Room?’ Was it good? Why was it good? What was so powerful about it? I’ve heard several reviews, but I’d love to hear more of your thoughts.

    • Reply Alyssa March 21, 2016 at 3:44 pm

      It was so good! It’s about a girl who gets abducted and the man basically traps her in a room. She has one kid from this man and you get a glimpse into the perspective of his life as a 5 year old and what it’s like to live in this room and how they escape. Very powerful story!
