(Currently) Doing a Happy Dance

by Sarah on April 11, 2014 · 6 comments

So, I finally decided it was time to expand my SiriusXM horizons and every now and then have begun switching over to the pop stations, and just today (Yesterday? When am I posting this?) was struck by how many happy songs are on the radio waves right now. If not full on singing about happiness [see “Be Okay” by Oh, Honey] then certainly bearing an underlying sense of optimism…happy songs

…or, in the case of my current can’t-help-loving-it song of the moment, at least makes you want to start singing like you are either a gospel singer or a member of a Disney movie chorus, even if the subject matter is less than positive.Picture1

All I’m saying is, yesterday (Today? I’m confused.) at Boot Camp, we literally took a happy dance break in between burpees and power squats.IMG_20140404_131652_192 (1) (1024x576)

Currently Listening To…

Oh, wait. Didn’t  I just answer that?

Currently WAS Reading…

Who has time to read?

I kid. I kid. The last book I read was, obviously, chick lit. I’m pretty sure if it is written about a twenty-or-thirty something female living in the big city (whichever one is your own personal reference point) dealing with the trials and tribulations of love–or in this case, murder—I like it.1379973786000-The-Bride-Wore-Size-12

Currently Eating…

If there’s crystallized ginger involved, too…well, all the better.IMG_6300 (1024x683)

Currently Drinking

Cider…IMG_20140329_183626_232 (577x1024)

…and sour beer.IMG_20140410_202750

…every now and then.

Currently Watching

Well, the Professor and I finally finished Season Two of House of Cards on Sunday in a four episode “we’ve GOT to be almost finished” marathon.

It seriously does make you question your own morality when you realize you just can’t help but like Frank.

But he’s evil.House_of_Cards_title_card

Thank you, Meechum.

Currently Annoyed By…

Mr. Mouse.IMG_20140404_154539_110 (576x1024)

Get your paws off my pitas!

Currently Wishing for…

…a mouse-free apartment?

Currently Feeling Blessed Because…

I get to teach this summer after all!


Currently Needing…

…to find someone in town who practices the challenging, fast Vinyasa flow yoga I love.IMG_20140405_101005_361 (1023x1024)

Current Mood


Currently Indulging In…

Currently Feeling Triumphant About…

…nearing the end of my first year as a PhD student! (Despite the craziness indicated in the comic above.)

Currently Excited About…

Spring arriving to Alabama.IMG_20140410_105603_794 (1024x576)

Which clearly deserves a happy dance.

I would totally go with you to yoga!! TOTALLY! I drive 45 minutes to hot yoga because it’s the only studio I’ve found around me so far that I enjoy… :)

Also, go to iTunes and stream the whole Ingrid Michaelson album. You’re welcome.

I love that when you write I can see you thinking. :)

Do you really have a mouse?!

Sarah April 13, 2014 at 9:48 am

Girl…I have had many mice. I was a mouse serial killer for awhile there. I’m pretty sure my neighbor feeds them or something…and that there is a hole behind my fridge I can’t see.

I should lend you one of my cats. They’d have your nice problem solved in a hot minute.
I’m currently loving spring weather as well and blissfully ignoring the snow that came today. I did yard work last weekend so dammit it means spring is here.

Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli April 17, 2014 at 7:04 am

Omg girl!! I’ve been there with a mouse in the house! Luckily they had very bland tastes in snacking and only got ahold of some puffed millet and a box of less than stellar crackers before I CAUGHT THEM WITH MY BARE HANDS…or something like that…which actually wasn’t as badass as it sounds and involved a lot of high-pitched shrieking and jumping up and down while flailing my arms around! 😉

Are you teaching fitness classes?!?
