(Me last week, taking a break from working on a photography project. Hi there! P.S. living in a old sorority house with few central lighting fixtures calls for lots of lamps and lots of dreamy lighting. Okay, I'm done now.)

Reading: about one third of the way through Me Before You before JoJo Moyes. I've had this book for about month, but just haven't been able to carve out enough time to focus on it yet. Everyone says it's amazing, but I haven't truly gotten deep enough into the story to confirm it's amazingness. I will have to report back later! So far, I'm not totally loving where I think it's going, but then again I could be dead wrong.

Watching: Game of Thrones, The 100, and Vampire Diaries. Game of Thrones is so good! I can't believe I waited this long to get on board. Also, I've been giving the new CW show The 100 a shot. I'm not hooked, but I like it enough so far that I want to keep up! Last but not least is my beloved Vampire Diaries. We're still going strong as we inch ever nearer to the finale!

Listening To: Finals call for a little throwback music. This week I've been listening to: Pictures of You by The Cure, Like a Prayer by Madonna, I Want You to Want Me by Letters to Cleo, and Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. So awesome and great studying music! Seriously considering making a finals week playlist to share here.

Eating: Everything in sight. I hate to admit that, but one of my bad habits is stress eating. Also, I eat in order to avoid doing things I don't want to. Because in my mind it's justifiable to put off studying because "I have to eat, it's like a basic human necessity!" Please tell me I'm not the only one guilty of this! Haha.

Aspiring To: grow my blog this summer, make a link-up idea come to fruition, write more articles (and hopefully submit them somewhere), do a lot of volunteer work over the summer, and continue to be practice both saying "no" and being open a person!

Online Love: these rad metallic temporary tattoos, this image, this article about loneliness vs being alone, and this blog post about helpful links for bloggers!

Offline Love: the thought that the semester is almost over, got a 94% on my most recent 10 page paper (woot woot!), extended deadlines and the mercy of kind art history professors, getting ish done, how wonderfully green everything is, mild weather, the Pomodoro method for getting things accomplished, summer on the way, being kind to myself in times of stress, and peanut butter frosting filled cookie-wiches!

What are you currently loving this week? Let me know in the comments below (also, I switched to Disqus for commenting, do we like?)
