I have always loved seeing what other bloggers love, read, watch and do. So when the “Currently” trend popped up I was delighted. Since I first laid eyes on one of these posts I’ve wanted to do one myself. So here it goes.
Reading: I’ve been reading a book called Titans of History by Simon Sebag Montefiore for the past few months. Being the history lover I am, this book is incredible. It is full of mini biographies of great and infamous people in history: from Caligula and Hitler to Anne Frank and Gandhi. It truly is one of the most amazing books for all those who enjoy history. I also just finished reading a really short but super informative and creative book called It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be by Paul Arden. I’ve also been super inspired by some rad blogs: Breanna Rose, Bleubird and Design Love Fest.
Watching: This week has not been a huge TV week for me, which is quite something to say if you look at how much TV I have watched in the last month. That being said I am looking forward to watching the new Downton Abbey, Mentalist, Elementary (hello, I love evryting Sherlock Holmes) and Law and Order SVU episodes.
Learning: I have recently learned that it’s ok to fail sometimes and also that changing your mind about something isn’t failure but rather a learning process. When I was reading last night I found this really important-to-me quote by Samuel Beckett, “Fail fail again. Fail better.” I’ve also been learning that it is important to do what you’re passionate about because then it really doesn’t feel like work. On a practical level, I have also been teaching myself a little bit more about Photoshop using online tutorials.
Listening to: The Lumineers is one of those bands that I can listen to anytime and all the time and still love it – I have been listening to (and singing) The Dead Sea over and over lately.
Anticipating: I’m super excited about my 21st birthday party, which is in less than 2 weeks away (guys, I’m 21 in less than 2 weeks! Eek!). I still have LOADS to finish up (read: start) like decor, the playlist, etc. I’m also really looking forward to summer and swimming and picnics.
