Location: Potchefstroom NWU University for my Microbiology practicals. I always like it here but it also always feels like I am living someone else’s life – the full time students with nothing but time. It feels so weird.

Reading: Insurgent by Veronica Roth. This is where Tris is the most annoying, so it is a slow process.

Watching: Trying get into the swing of Vikings. Everyone keeps raving about it so I am willing to give a few episodes a try.

Recently watched: Heathers, Insurgent and the Longest Ride on the movie side of things. Heathers was by far the best movie of the three, and I am going to gush about it if I ever get to writing a review for it. I reviewed the Longest Ride here, and I am first finishing the book Insurgent before I properly bitch about the movie – a girl needs her priorities straight.

Thinking about:

Grief: About how it doesn’t really change you, but it shows you who you really are. I finally feel like all the bullshit has been scraped away from my eyes because for the first time in a long time I know what really matters. I am not ready to word yet what has been going on in my life, but I’ve realized that your heart can keep on breaking every single day and you can still have the power to keep moving through life.

Savings: Like, I really need to start. I have to be able to live in Potch next year for six weeks and I have no idea how I am going to carry myself financially through 2016. I just love ADDITIONAL stress, you know.

Health: It will fully incorporate into the whole GRIEF post eventually, but I’ve just realized again what a life of bad eating habits does to a person. Healthy eating and regular exercise is also a way to combat depression, so I need to start doing both because I think that depression is not that far from where I am at this point. I am seriously considering Banting – I’ve heard great testimonials from people I know and they all look and feel great. I plan to start next week when I am back in Johannesburg, but will obviously only keep you updated if it works for me.

Excited about: Honestly, not much. I am really happy it is getting warmer here – I HATED THIS WINTER, and I am both happy and sad that Downton Season 6 is on its way.

How about you? What is going on in your life?

Life Lately and some great quotes – May 2015

Wow, I haven’t done one of these in ages! Maybe because I always feel that if I only put quotes up I am being too lazy and it is a half assed job. I totally put in links to other posts and articles to make it look less half assy 😀 Enjoy!

What’s happening in life right now?

Well, pretty much a nauseating amount of microbiology and physiology course work. I am right in the middle of exams, hence the absence on blog posting, reading and commenting, and no surprise, I am feeling a bit deranged. I am closing in on finishing my degree so there is no universe where it is okay for me to fail, causing me to be super stressed. Meh. However, I am only writing again on the 27th, so I do have a bit of a break before I hit the books again (and yes, I literally hit them against the wall quite often).

Reading wise I am still stuck on the DaVinci code. I am probably only fifty pages from done, but man, how excruciatingly long is that book? The story line is not strong enough to cover so many pages, let me tell you.

Watching: I am going to start a small blog run here with some macho movies. I love a good action movie, but man, some of these are dodgy. I am still playing around doing weekly installments or just one week straight, but at this point is seems better to do it weekly. I am SO excited!!

Some Quotes (and wise words quoted by no one):

How appropriate is this reminder? So powerful and true.
