Currently … |May Edition

I can’t believe we’re over halfway through with May! Commencement was this past weekend (which means I’m officially six years out, eew) so campus is a little quieter than normal with 2,500 students missing. I mean, I miss them, but at the same time there’s so much parking …

Anyways, I saw this Currently post on Amanda’s blog yesterday and I love reading these, so I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon. So without further adieu …


Current Book | You are a Badass
You are a BadassI lovvvvvve this book. So much so, I’m taking forever to read it. I try to only read it when I can devote my complete attention to it. Highly recommend.

Current Music | All of it
If you could see my current workout playlist, you would probably judge me. I have everything from dubstep to country to pop to sassy music (basically any song about butts, I probably have it in there for leg day). I’m really loving Ariana Grande’s song, though.

LOVE. (She’s not naked, I promise. Silly Vevo preview …)

Current Guilty Pleasure | Starbucks & Qdoba
It’s getting ridiculous, ya’ll. I’m outta money.

Current Food | Qdoba
Though I’m missing Hawaii’s shaved ice.

Hawaii Trip

Current Obsession | Snapchat
I’ve seriously been loving Snapchat lately. It kind of feels like a vlog, but in video AND picture form. I’m constantly on there.


Current Craving | A beach in Hawaii … 
Guys, I am seriously missing Hawaii. I miss the weather (duh), the beaches, the sunburn, the people, the food, the dogs …

Hawaii Trip

I’m having serious withdrawal and it hasn’t even been a month.

Current Need | Warmer clothing
Wisconsin needs to hurry this crappy spring stuff up and get warmer. It’s FREEZING.

Current Indulgence | Skinny Cow Ice Cream
HOLY COW (see what I did there?) these are SO good.

Skinny Cow

Current Bane of my Existence | My cough
Is it allergies? Am I dying? What actually is happening here, it’s been over a week.

Current Procrastination | Calling all of my locations for September happy hours
This is a work thing, but I’ve just been completely ignoring it. I don’t know why – am I that lazy? I just don’t even want to think about September because that means summer is over, so I keep ignoring everything past like, July.

Current Confessions | Missing people
You know, missing the location of Hawaii is bad enough, but the fact that I miss the people there now, too, makes it even worse. Facetime, text and phone calls only do so much, you know? Leave it to me to meet someone 5,000 miles away that has me feeling all sorts of feels. Leave.It.To.Me.

Current Excitement | Summer hours!
Summer hours are in effect as of this week (though I’m the one on call this week, so it doesn’t count for me). One of the best parts about my job is the amount of vacation and flexibility we get. I really, really am grateful for it! Half days on Fridays in the summer are pretty much the best thing ever.

Current Mood | Happy
I’m really, genuinely happy lately. I’ve been working hard at it recently (naming five things I’m grateful for each day, smiling at everyone I see, trying to think positively) and it’s been working. My life may not be exactly what I thought it would be at this point, but it’s pretty darn good. I have great people in my life that constantly show me how much they support me. I have two good jobs. My sister is living with me, which is helping me out. I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been. Sure, there’s things I wish that were different, but I’m sure whatever is supposed to happen, will.

Answer one of the questions below in the comments! I’d love to learn more about how you’re currently feeling. 🙂

    I watched your 100 questions video and loved it! haha It’s so interesting to hear people’s answers. I thought about doing it but I’m just SO awkward on camera. I’m ready for it to warm in Chicago, too. I need to be wearing shorts.

    • Jessie says:

      Write it out, then!! I think it originally was a blog post, but I just needed a video idea. 😉 I keep forgetting you’re so close in Chicago!

  2. Jordyn says:

    It is so cool that you have half days on fridays throughout the summer, definitely a big perk! Girl I SO think you belong in Hawaii, it’s a big leap of faith but I’m sure it would be worth it! (:

    I agree with Jordyn… Move to Hawaii! 🙂 If only it were that easy, right? I’m jealous of your short days! I wish we could flex our schedule every once in awhile to do that. You keep mentioning that song so I need to go listen to it now!

      Haha right? I’ll just get on a plane and throw away all my stuff. 😉 Just kidding, my bank account is basically negative right now, so that’s probably a bad idea.
