The TMI Survey

I came across this survey on Gracie’s blog and couldn’t resist taking it upon myself to complete it as well. I go weak for a good survey, they’re so much fun!

Making: big running plans – I want to focus on conquering the half marathon! It’s time I start speedwork…

Cooking: simple meals focusing around eggs, chicken, and avocado

Drinking: anything but whisky (last weekend was oh so rough)

Reading: A Brief History of Time‘ by Stephen Hawking

Wanting: fresh fruit! ’tis the season for…nothing that I love

Looking: forward to going home for Thanksgiving


Playing: ‘Habits – Stay High’ by Tove Lo (remix) – overplayed but I still love it

Wasting: too much time being lazy on the couch

Sewing: more headbands as soon as I’m back in Chicago

Wishing: for everything to turn out well with my crazy school plans (I keep reminding myself to do one thing a year that scares me) – I am so so so excited/eager/scared/happy and can’t wait to share with you all!

Enjoying: running in the colder weather among beautiful foliage in Central Park

Central Park foliage

Waiting: for the weekend!

Liking: I’ll never tell… (insert major winky face here because, boys ya know)

Wondering: where life will take me in the next five years

Loving: the support of my friends here in NYC

Hoping: that I’ll get to reunite with all my friends while back for the holidays in Chicago

Marveling: at the way this crazy city still manages to make my heart skip a beat 1.5 years later…


Needing: more sweaters! or a nice trench coat

Smelling: coffee, I’m so damn sleep-deprived for absolutely no good reason

Wearing: pajamas because it’s work-from-home day betches!

Following: inspirational running blogs

Noticing: how early the sun sets these days

Knowing: that all my crazy decisions and life changes are the right ones

Thinking: it’s time to start planning that Euro trip I’ve been ready for since graduating college


Feeling: optimistic, ambitious, and excited for the future

Bookmarking: too many dessert recipes

Opening: a new jar of Sunbutter

Giggling: uncontrollably.always. I kind of hate it but kind of love it too

Your turn! Steal this borrowed survey and spill!

    That pie looks amazing. Did you make it? If not, where is it from?

      I wish I had that sort of skill! My mom actually bought the pie from a local bakery in the suburbs of Chicago. I can find out the name for you if you’re interested!
