Back with another post about things I have been enjoying. I am probably missing something, but I wanted to keep this simple and just talk about my absolute favorite things right now! Also, the photo I chose to feature has nothing to do with my favorites, I just like it and think its cool 🙂
I just finished reading a book we actually have to read for my international marketing class. We have to do a book report over it in March, but I was so excited about it that I already read it. The book is called Where Am I Eating? by Kelsey Timmerman I definitely mentioned it a few blogs back, but I just wanted to mention it again because I am actually done with it now. It is all about where our food, in the United States, is coming from. It goes into stories about the authors experiences in different countries learning about some of the staple foods our diets (bananas, coffee, chocolate, etc.). The stories I read were informative, sad, hopeful, and overall interesting. I definitely look at the food I eat differently now and appreciate the work that went into producing it.
For my job, I have a part time internship where I am pretty much working on my personal and professional development. For this round of work and activities I am actually getting to listen to podcasts (amazing I know). I have experimented with different podcasts from the list of options and I found one that I actually really like and will continue listening to. Its called In the Arena. The topics range from attracting customers to productive thinking. I have learned a lot and explored topics that I wouldn’t naturally gravitate toward. I am trying to pick episodes about things I don’t know a lot about or that I think would be useful for me to hear. Finally, the intro song get you so excited for the podcast and ready to listen.
I have cut back on my Netflix and Hulu time. I am really focusing more on reading, writing, and taking in my last semester of college. However, there are couple of shows I either keep up with or watch during my free time. This Is Us is a show I have been watching each week on Hulu. I am sure most of you have heard of it because I feel like it has almost taken over. I look forward to it each week, but sometimes I wonder why because it can be so sad. But overall, I think it gives a good perspective on life and the fact that everyone has struggles and tough times in there life. I feel like the show can be really sad, but is also so uplifting at the same time.
Medium is the show that I have been watching in my free time. It is a bit of an older show. I remember my mom watching it all the time when I was in middle school (I think?) and I really liked it too. Its about a medium who works for the district attorney, helping catch the right criminals. Besides the crime aspect, a big part of the show is family and it is fun to see the kids grow up throughout the seasons. There are like 100 something episodes on Hulu, so I have a long way to go, but I’m sure I will get through it soon!
I probably talk briefly about music in all of my posts, so I will just list a few of my favorite songs right now!
“Say Something”- Justin Timberlake feat. Chris Stapleton
“Pray for Me”- The Weeknd feat. Kendrick Lamar
“Two High”- Moon Taxi
“We Do”- LANCO
“Moonlight”- Grace VanderWaal
My white Nike sneakers are my favorite shoes right now. I have always been more of a sneaker girl than any other type of shoe. In middle school I collected different sneakers, so having a solid pair of Nikes that aren’t for running brings me back to the good old days of middle school. I found mine at Marshall’s or Ross (I think?), but they have them on many different websites (linked above).
It isn’t one of my post without some mention of food. Today I’m going to keep it really simple with a sandwich and a seasoning. I love Jimmy Johns, so if I am ever in need of a meal on the go, Jimmy is my man. I also wanted to share a seasoning I love. Many of you may have heard of it or even have it, but thought it would be worth the share. I have been using the Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel Seasoning like crazy. I love it on all types of toast (cream cheese, avocado!!!, and peanut butter). I haven’t put it on anything else yet, but I’m sure it can go great on many other foods!
That is all for my post today! Let me know any of your favorites right now! I am always looking for new things to try, read, listen to, etc.
