Taking Stock : OCTOBER

Somebody pinch me! It is only 82 days to Christmas and a few more to the new year! Where is time going? What is the rush? I feel like I have barely maxed out this year. I however, can say that I am not the same person that started this year. I am different in many ways so, good ways. I have learned and loved, I have grown and gone, its me , just a different version.

Same year, new month, newer me, HELLO OCTOBER!

Making – I just made a tomato, ham and cheese sandwich! #HungerPangs

Cooking – well, I am currently eating, does that count?

Drinking –  A cold cup of Apple juice to go with the sandwich 🙂

Reading – The StoryTeller by Jodi Picoult 🙂

Wanting – I want to try the inversion growth method of hair this week 🙂  I started it yesterday after undoing my braids and I can’t wait to see if I will actually grow an inch in a week. I shall keep you posted 🙂

Wasting – a lot of time ” Planning” to arrange my room instead of actually doing it. #Sigh

Wishing – All of you a great month ahead. It is 2 months to the end of the year so make it count 🙂

Enjoying – This Sandwich as I type out this blog post 🙂

Liking – My progress on my book reading, however, I may not hit 20 books by the end of the year, gosh *hides face* I am aiming for 15 at the very least though, wish me luck 🙂

The Joys of shrinkage #NaturalHairCommunity

Wondering – Whether I shall ever lose this tummy if this is how I abuse carbs… THE STRUGGLE!

Loving – Well I loved the recent blood initiative that I worked with Johnson&Johnson and Janssen on. Small things like this are the things that make my world go round.

Marvelling – at how easily I made the decision to leave my place of work and how I am low key wishing I could go back only because I can’t stand not being active.

Needing – I desperately NEED a new phone. If you know me, you know my current struggles.

Wearing – A baati, now that I can work from home, who needs to dress up? Although, I bought the cutest office pants yesterday and I can’t wait to rock them to an interview.

Following – up on my plans for the Cancer foundation. I should have something soon for phase one of this project 🙂

Noticing – That things do happen for a reason. Every day I get affirmation for the decisions I have made and the “Wait” or ” No” answers I have received from above and even if I seem to be a bit dissatisfied, I know that there are plans in the works for me. HIS plans 🙂

Knowing – That it is breast Cancer Awareness month! Please create awareness, lend a helping hand and read this article here! It is on Blood Cancer , however, the necessity for blood remains the same.

Thinking – about all the job applications I have sent out so far. What is this life? 🙁

Feeling – like my days go by so fast. Monday is almost done and I have barely ” Accomplished” . Gosh.

Bookmarking – Any pages that have information on job vacancies. I wasn’t built for sitting at home, I am slowly going crazy and free lancing is stressing me.

Opening – My Skype account! It is about to get juicy with Aggie 🙂

Bonus : I am also loving the feeling of excitement I get from using my colored marker pens to write and document all my plans and goals . lol

The point in this picture is that color pop and not that undecided look on my face I have on there , lol 🙂
