Currently…September 2018

Posted September 5, 2018 by shooting in Personal / 47 Comments

It’s September and I’m once again linking up with Anne from In Residence for her monthly Currently link-up. I’ll also be sharing this with Kristen at See You in a Porridge for her What’s New With You link-up (1st Wednesday and 1st Thursday, respectively, of each month – link up with us!)

Starting: I hope to be starting at least one new dance class this month. Right now it will probably be tap, but if I can sign up for a hip hop cardio class later, then I’d like to eventually join that too. It all comes down to money, of course.

Buying: I’d like to be buying some books that have come out recently, but I’m trying to save some of my money for upcoming trips, experiences, etc. I try to spend more money on doing things instead of collecting more physical items.

Sharing: Ideas about what my friends and I want to do during our trip to New York City this November. The majority of us have been at least once, but one friend has never been, and there are a mix of things everyone would like to try and fit in during our few days there.

Reading: I just finished Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea and it’s such a good mystery. I’d definitely recommend it. I’m currently reading the novel version of Dear Evan Hansen, which comes out this October, and it’s really good so far!

Recording: Nothing at the moment, but shows are coming back (or airing for the first time) this month, so I’m sure I’ll be using my DVR somewhat to keep up with those. I’m excited for The Good Doctor to come back in particular.

  1. Hope you sign up for a dance class because it sounds like something you really enjoy.
    I like the way you say you are looking at spending money on doing things rather than collecting physical things.
    You must be so excited for your New York trip!

  2. Hip hop cardo! Oooooh, I’d love to do something like that too! I can’t wait to see how you go if you choose that one Lauren, you’ll be popping in no time! Saving sounds like a great option at the moment for me too. There’s so many massive bills coming in this time of year and with Christmas just around the corner too.

    Yay! You’re going to have a blast in New York! That’s where my husband is from, and I’ve been lucky to find some cool spots to hang out when visiting. Can’t wait to see pics and hear your stories of the trip. Like you, been saving cash on buying books, but sometimes I can’t help myself! HUGE Hugs and Happy Wednesday! RO

  4. I like to live the same way you do. I enjoy spending my money on experiences rather then physical items. I already feel like my house it cluttered and adding anymore will just be overload. I am already not looking forward to Christmas with a baby because EVERYONE will want to buy him things. My clutter anxiety is already showing its head!

  5. I did a hip hop cardio class at a gym once and it was so much fun- and so exhausting! I try to save for experiences/trips instead of physical items too. How long will you be in NYC?

  6. Yep – the Fall season is coming – full of great shows to make sure to record!!!
    I love you’re taking dance classes!!! I would love to take a ballroom class. I think I’d be good at it, but I’d probably be an epic fail πŸ™‚ haha Always better in the mind

  7. Oh, I hope you and your friends have a fun trip to New York. I have only been there once, but I loved it! First flight, first subway, first train…lots of firsts for me. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. A dance class sounds so fun! My husband and I really want to take salsa lessons so I’m hoping we can do that this winter. I bet you are so excited for your trip to New York! I have never been there but would like to go someday!

  9. Dance class sounds so fun! Considering my last dance class was over twenty-five years ago HAHA! Yes! I agree I’m not a stuff person I’m an experiences person so high five sister!

  10. Oh, spending money on “doing” things, rather than collecting objects, is something I’m also trying to do more. It’s a work in progress, but it’s so good to do that, well, I think, haha πŸ™‚
    And dance class, that sounds really fun! πŸ™‚

  11. I think it’s so smart that you’re saving money to start “doing” things and spending money on experiences rather than physical objects! I’d love to do that too, but MAN IT’S HARD! Haha. I do think books are a good physical item because you get an experience out of reading as well, so it’s kind of both physical and experiental?

    Have you watched the new Jack Ryan series with Jim from the Office πŸ™‚ ? It’s sooo good! Plus NY in November sounds super fun!!

  13. I love The Good Doctor! I am so ready for fall TV to come back. Chris and I are almost completely caught up with our Blue Bloods binge…just in time!

  14. You’ll love the hip hop class if you decide to take it, it is so much fun. It’ll definitely make you sleep that night. I need to read the books I have before I buy more. Which books are you thinking of? I may need to add to my collection hah.

  15. Oh man I used to do some adult tap dance classes and it was SO fun. You’re making me want to look into some where I live now! And how fun to be planning for a trip with friends πŸ™‚

  16. I want to buy a TON of books this fall and I successfully walked through a book store and bought nothing yesterday! I have to put myself on a total spending freeze because the fall is easily the months everything is due so I want to buy all the things but… yeah. No. :/

  17. I love that your taking dance classes!! One of my favorite authors just released a book this week and I fought with myself about ordering it. It came yesterday and I’m SO glad I decided to get it πŸ™‚

  18. i am trying to save money as well, and books are probably my most common purchase, even if they might be cheaper than clothes or makeup, they certainly add up! dance class sounds fun!

  19. I have been shifting my focus in the past year or so to spending my money on experiences (or to pay people to do things that I despise doing) in lieu of buying more stuff. It’s sometimes hard to break that buying pattern, but I’ve discovered that I it makes me happier.

    Oh, NYC… I bet it is lovely in the fall. I look forward to seeing your pictures.
