How many languages do you speak?

Just one, but I speak that one very very much good!! 😛 I took Japanese in high school, and really enjoyed practicing written communication through hiragana, katakana, and kanji characters.  Now I could basically introduce myself, and ask how you’re doing…that’s all you need, right?

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

  • All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy

I am really enjoying this book, yet school has kept me at a snail’s pace.  I hope to zoom through it over Memorial day weekend as I plan to start A Clockwork Orange next!

  • Just finished 13 Reasons Why, just started The Leftovers, and just continuing Silicon Valley, all while patiently awaiting the return of Game of Thrones…
  • Been getting back into Chevelle lately (they were my jam back in the day), but also a lot more upbeat tunes for my new workout routines. Gotta keep that heart rate up!
  • I have really been into avocados lately, so pretty much anything I can make a wrap out of is fair game. I also just got on the Halo Top bandwagon – chocolate chip cookie dough is the reigning champ so far, but I am working my way through the list!halo top, light ice cream

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

9/10 times it will be Basel (this stoic pic was taken this morning).  The other is likely to be a tree or coffee mug.  There’s always the possibility that I will be in said photo, posing with the aforementioned items.

What is your favorite time of day?

During the week, I really enjoy evening right after work (5-6 pm).  I get home to my pup and unwind with a run and loud music.  I enjoy mornings much more on the weekends.  Coffee just tastes better when you can relax outside with it, mingling with the wildlife as you sip!

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

There were a few familial medical concerns over the past week, so I am grateful for the distractions I had over the weekend.  The weather was gorgeous, so I got to show off my driving range skills on Saturday.  Unfortunately, my disc golf skills the next day, were not…on par….(had to)  And since only one person was there to witness it, I have to brag here that I nailed a hole-in-one at the driving range, on the last ball of the bucket!  Lights were flashing and everything!  Okay, I think a lot of experienced golfers can do this on the reg, but I am NOT experienced, so this was one for the ‘ole diary 😉

For the week coming up, I am looking forward to a Cubs rooftop game, despite what the weather forecast is predicting.  I am also looking forward to my vacation next week, as it’s the first “official” camping excursion of the season!!
