Newest Obsession/Wonderful Wednesday

My newest obsession is this book right here.  This past weekend while my parents were out of town in Mexico I asked my sister if she wanted to go to Barnes and Noble to get out of the house for a little while.  She agreed right away and so we got ready and off we went to the mall and then to Barnes and Noble.  I usually don’t buy anything when I go to book stores because I know that I won’t end  up reading the books.  I walk in get a drink and browse for an hour or two but never usually find anything that makes me want to read.  It’s a very bad habit that I have of just window browsing and never settling on something to read, I don’t think I’ve read a book since I left high school and only about three months ago did I get into listening to audio-books.

When we got to the store my sister went and chose the book she wanted right away and I decided to browse for a little bit since I was already there.  While browsing this book was one of the first ones I noticed thanks to its fabulous cover.  Honestly this book makes me want to read more books just so that I can have a color coded bookshelf, but I know that won’t happen, at least not for the time being.   I read the back cover of the book and thought to myself that it seemed like and interesting book but was unsure not only about the book but also about me even getting to read the book so I made my sister read the cover and let me know her opinion.  She seemed confused at first as to why I was getting a book since I hadn’t even read a book in so long, even magazines I just flip through and skim articles.

As we know now I did end up getting the book and began to read it that same night before bed.  I decided that I wanted to read the book and be relaxed while reading it, so I made myself a hot tea and began to read while snuggled up in bed. Honestly I felt like I should have instagrammed my whole set up I felt so good and relaxed while reading thanks to it,I think that’s why I ended up enjoying reading this book even more.  I read the first three chapters on Saturday and Sunday, two on Monday, and three last night so I’m already up to chapter 11, this is the first book that I’ve read so far  into so I’m really enjoying it.  I really love the way this book was written and also the breaks that come within each chapter to show a different characters life and love problems.  I know I’m not into the book to get into the heartbreak yet but I can tell this is going to be one of the books that I’ll actually go through from start to finish.

I’ve spent so much time just being online and watching YouTube videos that I feel like I am a slow reader now and my reading comprehension feels slow and useless as well. Nonetheless I decided to read this book and I’m so glad I did.  I’m hoping to have this book finished before the end of the month that way I can give an actual review of the book and not talk about how I got the book in the first place.  Let’s look forward to reading the whole book this month and if anyone has any suggestions on what I can do to keep reading let me know so I can try all the suggestions out.

Wonderful Wednesday

It’s been a long time since I’ve been here. I have been working and life just seems to have been getting in the way of logging on.  As of today my life is actually pretty great, I absolutely love my job and have just started working 10 hours shifts four days a week. Well this week it’s only a three day week so I’m a little sad that my check is going to be short but I’m quite excited to be at home and to rest my feet for four whole days!!! For today’s wonderful Wednesday I’m going to talk to leave you with a list of all the things that made me smile this week.

  • Working the new schedule means that I get to spend weekends at home.
  • This also means that if I want to and have the resources I can travel around the state quite often.
  • TRAVEL, TRAVEL, TRAVEL
  • Also with this extra time off I want to work on cooking at home foods that actually seem appetizing and get out of the food rut I’m in.

I’ll update this once I start cooking.

Wonderful Wednesday

Today was a fun day all around and to celebrate that here is a list of my top 5 K-pop songs ever.

  • Big Bang-Crazy Dog
  • 2NE1-Pretty Boy
  • Freestyle-Y
  • Brave Girls-Easily
  • G-Dragon-R.O.D

As you can see from this list I have very particular tastes when it comes to music and I tend to by YG biased.

Anyways today was a fun day at work and at home as well.  The day seemed to fly at work and that makes me very happy because it means that I’m doing something that either interests me a little bit or challenges me to work hard and not focus on time.  It also helps me to focus on the task at hand and not worry about problems that I may be facing elsewhere so here’s to a wonderful day at work and hopefully it’ll stay like this for a while!

Wonderful Wednesday

Today’s wonderful Wednesday is made up of my mom, my sister, and I going to an awesome Zumba class today! My mom made my sister and I go to a Zumba class with her after I got off work, I really didn’t want to go since I was tired from work but she had been bugging me for a few days about going with her so I finally gave in.  I’m really glad she dragged me into going and also that she’s having fun while she goes on her own.  The instructor played a lot of Spanish songs and only two songs in English but that’s fine with me since I can understand both languages.  Salsa and hip-hop were the main genres for today’s class but my mom said that yesterday they had a lot more salsa and cumbia songs playing which she liked better, but since I like hip-hop this was the perfect class for me.  Not only did I get a great work out in but it also completely changed my mood into a happy one.  I’m thinking I’m going to try to go at least three times a week so I can go and work out because I gained a lot of weight recently and really need to lose the weight.  Knowing me though it probably won’t happen, but I’m going to try to be disciplined this year or at least start to learn the ways of organization and prioritizing.

Wonderful Wednesday

I just wrote a post about making writing a habit and here I am once again late, but better late than never right?

Yesterday nothing really exciting happened it was just a regular day. I didn’t see anything that made my day nor made me smile for no reason at all. I did however have great and enjoyable day just resting and being 100% comfortable with the decisions I’ve made thus far.  They aren’t decisions that I would make again if given the chance, but given the circumstances my life isn’t as bad as I originally thought.  That in itself was a great reason to be alive and bustling around with my family.  Also I’ve decided that instead of getting a gym membership I’m going to go to some group classes. I’m hoping that this way I can get motivated to work out and live a healthy lifestyle and also make some friends and acquaintances along the way.  What better way to start off the new year than by finally doing something to help myself a little bit.

Wonderful Wednesday

So for some reason I’ve been really unhappy with a lot of things in my life lately and have decided that in order to cheer myself up I will start a wonderful Wednesday as a weekly corner. This corner will include anything that makes me smile on Wednesdays from something as small as a good picture that I take to hearing a nice joke from someone and anything in between.  Exciting right?

So for my first ever Wonderful Wednesday it is actually a video that’s going pretty viral with the fans of One Direction which is the Carpool Karaoke segment they did at the “Late Late Show With James Corden”.  I really enjoyed watching this video because although I don’t know much about One Direction other than that they had five members at first and one of them left and now they have four, but seeing and hearing them sing their hearts out really made me smile.  I have two favorite parts in the video which are when the boys are surprised when James hits the high note at minute 5:29 and also when they are learning the dance that James choreographed for their song “No Control” at minute 6:37, also as an extra tidbit hearing how well they can sing specially when Harry hits his notes is also very entertaining.  I think I may give a listen to their newest album, I know that they have had other albums in the past but hearing their songs in chronological order on the show has shown me that their latest album will be something that I will like. The small part that they sung for the songs “No Control” and “Perfect” sound like something I would really enjoy.  So without further ado here is the video that made me smile this morning. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
