Princess looooooves Emily from Jones Design Company and plans to copy everything she does. Soooo after reading what Emily's post today, Princess decided to embark on her plan immediately.
Princess is currently…
loving: her new pen! What a great pen! PEN!
reading: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (her stay-up-too-late-because-it’s-so-exciting read) and Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (her let’s-appreciate-the-beautiful-description-but-also-suddenly-feel-sleepy read)
waiting for: lunch. Always waiting for lunch.
excited about: Lunch. But also excited about a low key weekend full of snuggles and more lunch.
trying to: teach her husband about commas. He uses a comma when it “feels right,” and Princess, is, tired, of, editing, his, stuff.
working on: getting all this quarter’s grading done (about 500 papers stand between her and spring break) without slipping into madness. She tricks her brain into not hating it by buying an awesome pen especially for the occasion and strategically mapping out when she'll grade what. (PRINCESS LOVES LISTS!)
enjoying: Diet Dr. Pepper
using: MyFitnessPal app to track the calories. This is un-Princess-like behavior, but it must be done because there are pants, cute pants, high waisted pants, that feel a little snuggers. BUT, Princess does not tell her fitness pal ANYTHING that happens on the weekends. DRAMA.
wearing: a sweatshirt with her puppies' faces on it. No really. It's pet day at school, but if Princess is honest with herself, she will wear this sweatshirt again.
planning: how to educate her unborn future children. Princess has inexplicably dedicated most of her recent thinking to this issue. Big plans in place, people. Big plans. In the market for a good math person willing to supplement her language arts plans and be booked like 10 years in advance.
singing: “I’m Scared” by Duffy (Princess is not scared unless someone mentions Anne Frank--she just likes the song.)
needing: a nap. See Princess’ last post for the reason why… sheesh.
learning: to play the guitar, ish. Her sis is totally on the ball about it, and Princess has always wanted to, so Sister’s motivation is motivating her. She’s totally freaked she’ll be bad, so she keeps attempting for like 10 minute chunks, gets scared someone can hear her, and bails. Hopefully this nifty invention will help ease her anxiety. First song on the docket: Adele’s version of “Make You Feel My Love.”
listening to: The Band Perry, Hunter Hayes, Duffy, and Les Mis. Always Les Mis.
wishing: technology was her true friend rather than one of those friends who says things like “Oh, so you’re going to wear that?”
doing: well, helping her students through their research paper. This is always mildly traumatic, but never as traumatic as two years ago…
dreaming of: being one of those people whose house is always clean and hair is always perfect. What is the deal with these people? Princess’ mom taught her a mantra to use whenever other people seem too awesome: “Oh yes, but they’re probably not really happy.” Use it like this: “Oh no! That girl ordered a salad, and I already ate the entire roll basket and ordered a burger! You know what, she’s super fit, but she’s probably not really happy.”
Want to play along with Princess? YEAH GURL! What are you currently up to?
