Currently loving

I blinked and its already Tuesday. The weekend flew by and though I did have a great one, I didn't take many pictures (what's new) so there was no point in recapping it. I hope all those who celebrated Memorial Day this weekend had a great long weekend though. I could have used the extra day ... or five.

I realised the other day that there are some things in my life these days that I'm just loving, or at the very least put a smile on my face. I know life isn't about things but sometimes things can make you happy. It's the little things in life that must be appreciated ... heck the big things too. So I decided to share some of the things giving me the happies these days.

Friday Favourites

I never write posts the morning I post them ... unless I go out the night before, which is exactly what happened last night. It's been a good week and the first week in a long while that I have zero complaints and am genuinely happy! Why? Well in case you missed it, my masters ended and I got a new job. So I'm particularly happy for my faves today.

Fave moment 
Last night to celebrate the week that was I went out for drinks with my girls and to enjoy some live  local alternative and rock music. It was a good night.

I'm sure you can guess which drink was mine - Ill give you a hint, its the non-girlie drink. ha!

Sex and the City Quotes

You ever had a show that you loved and that just always put you in a good mood? For many it was Friends, for me and my sister it was Sex and the City. We would watch it for hours and hours on end and then watch it the next day all over again. I literally cannot get tired of this show.

Anyway, I was watching an episode last night (thanks cable for showing reruns forever - also thanks to me for never scheduling posts) and I remembered why I loved this show so much. Apart from the the obvious reasons why I would gravitate to the show - its based in NYC (one of the best cities), its the story of a writer, its all about friendships, love and life and failures and successes... the reason I love it is because it was a show filled with wisdom ... and so damn quotable.

*blows cobwebs*

Seriously though, is anyone there? I mean look who showed up to their own blog party today! I genuinely did not intend to completely abandon the blog for two weeks, but abandon I did. I'm sure you were fed up of hearing me whine about my thesis (I sure was fed up of whining) ... and I'll be honest that's the only thing I would have done if I showed up to the blog within the last two weeks. I assure you I'm back for good. I missed my blog, So let me update you on the life happenings and what I've been up ...

1. Thesis - Surprise Surprise, this is the main thing I was up to. As of Saturday I completed my thesis! Its not yet handed in but its complete. I hand in tomorrow and will then take the stiffest drink of scotch in all the land. See ... I'm handing in my thesis a month before its due because my supervisor has to leave the country this week - hence the rush, hence the stress and anxiety. It's done, its over, no more thesis talk. I'm sick of it.

***  I just need to put this out there. Until my graduate thesis is handed in on May 18th I make no promises as to how much I will post because ... tired. I have SOO many posts in draft that I want to complete and I actually have the motivation to do complete them, but its been whomp whomp for the last few weeks. So for the next couple of weeks while I wrap up the bane of my existence, i will post but only when I can. Ill be back to my favourite hobby in full force after that. I can only hope you guys stick around :D ... Phew. That legit took a load off of me.

It's May 1st already! I swear 2015 just started. I'm stoked for May though because by the end of this month, a weight , a giant weight that has been on my shoulders for the last two year will be lifted when the thesis is handed in. Anyway its Friday and therefore its Favourites time.

Favourite moments:
One of my best friends who is doing her masters in Peru is in town, which is another reason I was missing this week. Frankly all work and no play makes me really grumpy so when I do have a free moment I slot in some fun time. And that's what I did on Monday. We grabbed some sushi and wine  (mojito for her) and will probably do something very similar tonight.
