Hi there, my fellow peculiar treasures! I cannot believe it is already April! This year is flying by and I am learning that life really does go by faster the older I get. I used to hear other people say that when I was a kid and didn't fully understand, but now I totally get it!
I also feel like it's been a while since I have given you any sort of life updates or anything like that, so today's post is all about my life, what's happening, what I'm loving, etc. Enjoy!
Listening to: PentatonixGuys, I am completely addicted to Pentatonix. I've loved their Christmas stuff for a while, but I haven't stopped listening to them since December. They create such beautifully crafted covers of awesome songs, write some of their own, and if I am completely honest, I swoon a little every time I hear Scott's voice. They are so incredibly talented and great for practicing your own harmonies, if you're into that.
Watching: The Youtubes 😎Hubs and I have a few Youtube channels that we love to watch together when he gets home from work at night. To name a few: FailArmy, News Bloopers, Team Coco (Conan), Carpool Karaoke, and Worth It (by Buzzfeed). These are really fun and hilarious. A good way to end the evening.
Reading: Harry PotterI started reading the first book in the Harry Potter series a while back, but didn't really get very far. About three weeks ago I started reading it again and ended up totally sucked in. I am now on the third book and really enjoying it. I have always been a slow reader, but it feels so good to get back into reading.
Learning: To Be PatientPatience, unfortunately, is not one of my strong-suits. Whoops... Thankfully, I am married to a very patient man who balances me out a bit. And now that I am looking for a job, I am having to remember not to be hasty. I don't want to be so worried about money that I run out and get the first thing that presents itself, only to hate it immediately. I'm learning (very slowly) to be a little more patient.
Wishing: I was a Full-Time BloggerRemember that patience thing? Well, this is an area that I have not yet learned the art of patience in. I want it so, so bad. I'm growing, I'm learning, and I am drawing nearer to my goals everyday, but I want them to come now, not later. But again...patience, young grasshopper.
Life Updates: Taylor's Seminary and My JobAfter this semester (which will be over in a little more than a month), Taylor will only have one semester left! Part of me can't believe how fast it's gone, and the other part of me cannot wait for him to finish. I am ready to feel more financially secure, to be on a more stable schedule, and to actually get to see my husband at normal hours of the day. I'm so ready!
As far as my job goes, I will be leaving sweet Evie in a couple of weeks. I love nannying for her a whole lot, but her family wants to spend more time with her which doesn't give me enough hours to stay. That means I am on the job hunt again. I would love to be able to go full-time as a virtual assistant and have completely revamped my "services" page, so we will see how that goes.
Other than my job situation, there isn't much going on in the lives of the Cooks. We wake up, work, eat, sleep, repeat. Adulting at it's finest, right? 😉
But seriously, life is good. Yes, we are ready for the next season, but we are thankful for the over-all blessings of our current one.
How are you feeling in your current season? Is it all over the place and scary, or uneventful, like ours?
