Currently: June 2018

Currently at Lindsay Loves

Well, that was a long hiatus. I hope to share what I’ve been up to in a future post, but for now, let’s just hit the ground running.

Here’s what (and where) I am currently…

Traveling: Nowhere, which is the way I like it. I rely so much on my habits and routines that the perks of traveling are outweighed by everything being so different from my usual life. I lived overseas as a kid and have lived and worked in several states, so I’ve had plenty of great experiences. I might be up for a few more, but traveling is not my thing.

Grilling: Nothing—I don’t know how! I was grilled in a couple of interviews recently, though. Not everything is in writing, and the Internet never forgets, so I can’t be specific yet, but I have news. Stay tuned.

Exploring: A new dance studio. I always knew I’d get back to West Coast Swing eventually, but it took until summer for me to have the bandwidth of time and energy to actually do it. Becoming a regular at a new studio will take some time, but I’ve done it before, so I’m confident that I can do it again. My shoes are already happy to be back on my feet.

Planting: The seeds of new friendships. Work takes up most of my time, so I didn’t have the bandwidth for friend-making, either. This is a good time, though. Making friends as an adult is difficult and awkward, but it can be done. Do you have any advice?

Playing: QuizUp and 4 Pics, 1 Word. Throwbacks, I know! I got a new iPhone a few months ago, so I’ve been using it a lot since I don’t have to deal with the sluggishness of my old one. (I made that 5c last for four years!) I paid to remove ads on QuizUp ages ago, so the 2-minute games are exactly my style. I did not pay to remove ads on 4 Pics, 1 Word, so I usually play less than ten levels before I get fed up and stop. I’m reasonably certain that the marketers did not mean for the ads to help me avoid getting addicted, but that is the result.

I usually end my Currently posts by recapping the previous month, but it’s been ten months since I posted, so I will spare both of us that labor… for the moment.

What’s new with you? What are you playing currently?


Currently is hosted on the first Wednesday of each month by Anne of In Residence. This month’s guest co-host is Sarah of Total Basset Case. Won’t you join us?

I’ve missed your blogs. Your Currently Post was always my reminder to go write mine so I haven’t done too many of them in the last year either.

Making friends as an adult is so hard. I find it really hard to go from that shallow hey I saw you at the last event of xyz to hey let’s go shopping, or out to dinner, or meet up for coffee on Friday. I also always feel like I’m bothering people which I know is my own issue. I joined the neighborhood app for my neighborhood in hopes of meeting some people but so far all it is is a bunch of nosy people complaining about bugs and car alarms.

I’m going to check out QuizUp. Hope to hear from you soon!

    I missed blogging! I think Anne sends an email to everyone who posted the previous month when it’s almost time for the upcoming one, so that might help if I take a pass.

    As I wrote, I’ve been taking some baby steps towards making friends. It’s going okay, but it doesn’t feel the same as it did when I was younger. Maybe the part of my life where I have a bunch of friends is over.

I used to love 4 pics 1 word! I’d completely forgotten about that game but now I remember all the time I spent on it!

That’s great you found a new dance studio. I hope you love it! I actually have my end of the year dance recital tonight. :) I was never a big traveler growing up, but I’ve gotten the bug. I’m still not always a huge fan of the TRAVEL part, but I like to explore new places.

I am with you on the routines! I travel a few times a year, and enjoy it for the most part, but I do get flustered by the change-up from my schedule, and feel worn out by the time I get home. So my favorite place to travel is my parents’ cottage – only an hour away, and familiar enough that we have certain routines/schedules that we end up on there. Good to know yourself in this way and do what you enjoy!

So fun that you’ve found a new dance studio – I would love to do that! – and lovely to have you back :)

Welcome back! I am also way overdue for a post. It was good to read your writing again and see a small update!
