Last week, I said that I wasn’t so excited to do life-y posts anymore. Hypocritically, I’ve had the urge to try my hand at a Currently post and give a little snapshot of my life lately, like many of my favorite bloggers do.
Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large. I contain multitudes.

Currently reading: I just finished Difficult Women by Roxane Gay. Beautifully written but painful. On Saturday, I got a library card for our local library district and checked out Swing Time by Zadie Smith.
Current procrastination: Finishing up with the formatting and proofreading on my thesis so I can submit it to the graduate school for official acceptance.
Current need: To get my wisdom teeth taken out. I’ve been putting it off for four years, friends. And they hurt. Fortunately, I have a consultation scheduled with the oral surgeon in about two weeks.
Current obsession: I splurged on a new t-shirt I found on Pinterest by a Canadian company called Mimi & August. Cats + body positive = <3Currently watching: I’ve gotten into Season 4 of Next Gen and the final season of Downton. Season 6 of Downton so far has been much better than Season 5.
Current excitement: With the help of a little “Kohl’s Cash” and shopping the sale rack, I got a new pair of teaching shoes for $0.00! Current non-guilty pleasure: Beautiful, sunshine-y days in northern Colorado! My boyfriend and I got in a big, beautiful hike in the foothills south of town. Current food: Rather unusually for me, I’ve been on a salad kick.Current accomplishment: Social time. I’ve had a few much-needed dates with friends in the last couple of weeks, including breakfast with one of my oldest friends back in Kansas, dinner and games with a couple of friends who are moving soon for Ph.D. school, drinks with some of my boyfriend’s swing dance friends, and a barbecue hosted by a grad school friend. Quite a lot of social time for someone who gets most of her social interaction complaining to her officemates and roommate.
