The Sunday Currently Vol. 2

Reading

Out of Oz, the fourth and final book in Gregory Maguire’s Wicked Years. I find these books so emotionally charged that I’ve had to take breaks between each of them. The shortest break was between A Lion Amon Men (the third book) and this one because that seemed to be the transitory book. As with all good series’s, I’m both looking forward to and dreading turning the last page.

Writing

Lately, lots of lists. Things to pack, things to get done, things to remember. I know a lot of people have a sort of list fetish (i.e. they enjoy writing lists and maybe also crossing things off those lists). I don’t really see lists as particularly exciting things… they are what they are. Lists. Woopdeedoo?

Listening

To a whirring fan.

Watching

A lot of HGTV. The show “Love it or List It” is pretty fun and I literally cannot tear my eyes away from the TV screen when brokers show a beautiful home.

Thinking

Lately, a lot about not really wanting to birth a child into this world. The reasons are not difficult to explain, but they probably wouldn’t be well received. So I’ll keep them to myself.

Smelling

A “tomato leaves” scented candle.

Wishing

That it would just stop raining already and just be gloriously sunny all the time. 70% because that would make me happier overall, 30% because the rain makes Manila traffic unbearable!

Hoping

— Can I leave some of these blank sometimes? Because I’m not really hoping for anything that sounds much different from my wishing that the rain would stop. Haha

Wearing

A ratty old Desigual men’s t-shirt that says “ex” on it. I bought it in Spain way back in 2007 when I was exactly that to someone for the first time ever. (I was emo as a teen.)

Loving

My family! My cousins in particular. I’m an only child, so they’re the closest I’ve got to siblings. :)

Wanting

A cup of tea with cream and sugar. I would go downstairs and make myself one, but it’s probably not the best idea as I had an upset stomach yesterday.

Needing

A nude bandeau that matches my skin tone. “Flesh” coloured things aren’t all NC30, ya knowww.

Feeling

SO MUCH BETTER THAN I WAS YESTERDAY. Haha I totally lost my Saturday to menstrual pains and an upset stomach. The queasiness carried over into this morning so I was surprised to be feeling better by lunch time. It’s scary how a little imbalance in the body can totally take you out of commission for a while… and as a hypochondriac, I detest being even slightly sick. So I’m glad to be feeling close to 100% again!

How are your Sundays going, guys? :) Sorry about the lack of photos in this post. I just couldn’t be bothered. Haha

    Such a touchy subject (not wanting to have a child).

    I have a lot of reasons why I wouldn’t want to birth or adopt one, too, and they’re also not for internet sharing.

    I’m currently ambivalent about it. I’m ok whether or not I have a child in the future. A friend said I should have one now because I’m “old.”

    Anyway, I’ve always wondered why I never got that strong desire to have a kid. I asked myself several times if there’s something wrong with me. If my husband didn’t want to have kids, that would’ve been great. For now, all I know is if I ever got pregnant, I’ll try to be my best.

  2. I like Gregory Maguire’s books, but I actually skipped the Wicked series. Nothing against them, but I didn’t feel “ready”. Growing up, I wasn’t that familiar with the Wizard of Oz story. I stuck to Cinderella and Snow White, so I ended up with Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and Mirror, Mirror. I’ve seen the musical, so I want to work my way up to the series eventually.

  3. Love it or list it is one of my favorite HGTV shows. The cheesy banter is great.

    Btw, I love your blog. Anyone who has a bee theme is cool in my book. Lol.
