Wednesday Wishes - 01

I decided to link up with Love the Here and Now, and do Wednesday Wishes. Here goes!

http://www.lovethehereandnow.com

  1. I wish that I wasn't so stressed out at this point. To be fair, I am not nearly as stressed out as I used to be, say a year ago. But I was hoping that this four-days-off-in-a-row stretch would involve a bunch of mindless nothing. Sadly, it did not.
  2. I wish that I was a little bit more financially stable. I have one big, stupid outstanding bill that I am working on paying off - I should be done by August - and after that, I should finally be able to start putting money away for a rainy day. Until then, though, I will stress about it, and wish that I had more money to just go and do things on a whim.
  3. I wish that more of my friends lived closer. This is the only real downfall I have with the fact that I love moving around so much. I miss people terribly sometimes.
  4. I wish that junk food was better for you, or that fruit tasted a little bit more like chocolate cake. It would make things so much better.

  1. Thanks for linking up! Wish your 4 day break had been better. And by the way, I'm with you on wishing junk food was better for you! I'd be so healthy!!

    1. No problem! It's my first ever link up! Just getting into blogging really, and learning my way around and whatnot. I've had this blog a while, but let it go, then just started writing again, but am interested in the social aspect of it all.

      Seriously! I've been eating better for about three months (minus a week or so earlier this month that I fell off the wagon and ate like a pig), but it can be so hard! And I now have friends (who happen to be nurses, of course) telling me that I'm not eating enough because I am not getting the number of calories that my body is apparently supposed to be getting. If I ate a chocolate cake, I'd hit my calorie requirements! But since I am eating fruits, veggies, chicken, and some low-calorie frozen meals, I can't possibly get the calories I am supposed to. Sometimes, I'm half-tempted to eat some terrible crap... just to get my calories. ;)

  2. I hear you on both the junk food and the financial stability. My student loans kill us, and I feel like I'm not really using them. :-(

    1. I haven't even started paying those back. I need to, but I can't even access the site I'm supposed to pay them from. They say I don't exist. Good. lol

  3. Well for one, your blog design is adorable. I am excited to get to know you better! I hear you regarding friends living far away... all of my best friends live back home in Indiana... lots of FaceTime dates!! :) (And YES. I wish junk food was good for you too... a frequent conversation with my husband.)

    1. Thank you! I just recently changed to this design. A good blogging friend of mine designed it for me, and I am absolutely in love with it. I love the little clipart of the dog that we found to incorporate into it, because she looks eerily like my dog. :D

      It's tough. I grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania, so a lot of old friends live there. I've spent time living in Tennessee, lots of friends there. And New Jersey (the most recent place I left), so lots of friends there. Luckily I am only about two hours from where I was living in New Jersey, so I do occasionally get to go visit with that group of friends, but it's just tough. I also have no idea where I want to go next (I've thought about Pennsylvania, just to be closer to family, but I've thought about going back to Tennessee because I love it so much! Or there could be somewhere else entirely that I am meant to end up next). And leaving here will make me sad. Not sad enough to stay, mind you, but sad enough that I will miss some people like crazy!

  4. First of all, Thank you for linking up with us :) and second, your blog background is so amazing! I have a serious chevron obsession.2, 3 & 4 - it's like I wrote them myself! It shouldn't be too much to wish for chips being just at tasty and healthy as let's say carrot sticks right?

    1. Hello! Not a problem - I'm new to blogging and trying to find great blogs to link up with, and found that these link ups are a fantastic way to do this!

      And thank you! Isn't it cute? I just had my blog custom designed a week or so ago, and I'm still at the stage where I come to my blog and can't help but smile at how adorable it is!

      I recently started eating better and exercising. I don't officially have any restrictions, other than trying to stick to a certain calorie limit. So theoretically, I COULD eat some Oreos or something... but am finding that it just isn't worth the calories. I just need to find something that tastes as yummy! ;)
