Sunday Currently...

Hope everyone is having a nice relaxing Sunday. I am absolutely loving this weather! The sunglasses have not been put down this whole weekend and today is no exception. I plan on getting some meal prepping and the gym in today so it will be a busy day for me, but with the sun shining who can be upset about it. Here's to the last week of April!!!

Thought I would get back into some of my favorite link ups....I love Lauren from Siddathornton's Currently Sunday....so here is mine!

R E A D I N G  Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I have a long list of books that I have been interested in reading in the year 2014, and Gayle Forman's books were at the top of the list. Her first one What if I stay was pretty good and I am now reading the follow up. I like them. But I wished she went into detail with more stuff. But I still can't put the books down so they are definitely interesting.

W R I T I N G  my meal plan for the week. Since I got a personal trainer last week, I've had to also transform my eating habits. Now I was already doing that a little bit, but having to track 30 separate meals is a little time consuming especially calorie counting.

L I S T E N I N G to a lot of Hip Hop. I mean I listen to everything but I have been hitting the Rap hard. I guess it is just a energy lifter for me. I spend a lot of time in my car dancing and getting pumped for school or the gym. Gotta get the motivation from somewhere.

T H I N K I N G  that I really need to follow up on my 101 in 1001 days list. I'm sure I have accomplished some things in the last 4 months. 2014 has been such a roller coaster but I need to still keep some things going for me and this list gives me life.

S M E L L I N G  my Sexy Little Things Black Noir by Victorias Secret. My favorite right now.

W I S H I N G that I could lay by the pool all day...I think I should have done that yesterday. Duly noted for next week. I think I may do that before my Cinco De Mayo Bar Crawl. But my skin in peeling from my Miami trip so I WILL be wearing sunscreen. I should be using it all the time anyway.

H O P I N G that this week will go by fast! Only 5 more weeks of school left. The countdown is on! 

W E A R I N G  Gym clothes. I worked out today...keeping it up...but I need more cardio in my life!

L O V I N G The weather lately. I love the Spring has finally arrived and its time to have my legs out and get a nice pedicure!

W A N T I N G  Chipotle....and then I took a break from this post and got some. I am being healthy with it though...cutting out sour cream and chips and flour tortillas...all not good!!

N E E D I N G  a re-evaluation of my friends. I found out some news today that didnt sit with me well. I know my life is pretty chaotic right now, but what I do need is my closest friends by my side..and i dont have that right now...

F E E L I N G  ready for the week. As soon as I finish packing all my lunches and dinners and take a trip to Walmart I will be ready to start it.

Been gone for a minute now I'm back with the Jump Off...

Wow that was an old Lil Kim song reference....those who don't know it shame on you! 
(just kidding Lil Kim is pretty awful). But hey, it seemed fitting...



It has been a crazy couple of months, busy as hell, but I felt really ready to come back to my blog. I want to approach it differently and have more fun with it. It was starting to make myself post just to say I did and keep my tiny gang of followers when really I should be writing on this thing because its fun and I feel inspired and I want to continue my connection to the world (or maybe North America...I'm not quite global yet.)

I've already got some great post ideas lined up so I am excited about those. 
Ideas that have been sitting in my Iphone waiting to be used. Well they are about to be!

But this post is strictly a little baby catch up...

It's my blogs 2 year anniversary and as cool as that sounds, it sucked that I haven't even been writing on it! I feel like men have popped in and out of my life like that. Here for awhile, drop off the face of the Earth for 2 months, then hit you up like it was nothing. Ugh. Tell me I didn't just do that.

So rather than make a whole bunch of promises that I will be held accountable for (or at least hold myself accountable for) I will just be making small changes when I can. No fuss, no announcement...just do it.

Now its time for my baby recap. Just a small glimpse in what I'm doing and what keeps me soooo busy!

*Got in the GYM! Got myself a Personal Trainer. 
It's been a week, but i'm still going! So far so good.

* Joined Tinder (DO NOT LAUGH) Yeah I'm way late....
It's actually pretty comical and interesting to say the least.

* Went to Miami (not real breaking news but still so much fun). 
I had a reunion with some of my closest girls and had a weekend of chaos!

* I'm on a Weave Strike. Well more like a hiatus.
 My money is disappearing daily to "Nikki's long list of things that I need in my life".
So I can't exactly afford to get my luxurious locks done. This won't last very long. I can feel it.

* Two jobs are still the worst. Since its getting closer to summertime I NOW have to find a new job to take place of school. I kind of wish I was working at a year round school. 
No muss, no fuss. And their vacation time is awesome! 
Hopefully I won't end up in retail, but if I have to....Ill do it.

So things are still hectic for me right now...
and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Great to be back!
 Hope everyone had an awesome Easter!
