Currently... (Father's Day Edition)

Another Sunday, another "Currently" Post!

Seeing as it's Father's Day today, I wanted to first talk about my dad. I took my dad and the rest of the family out for barbecue ribs today (because it's my dad's favorite food). I think being the child of an immigrant really makes you appreciate all the sacrifices your parents had to make in order for you to get to where you are now. I think nobody embodies this kind of sacrifice like my father. It was so much fun to see my family all together again. With my working and my brother in university, it's really hard for us to all make time to see each other but I was very glad we did it for my dad.

Now, onto some of the other things that have been on my mind lately:Currently
  • Watching: World Cup - I mentioned before that I am a huge fan of soccer (or football as the rest of the world calls it). I studied abroad in both Madrid, Spain and Oxford, England and I've come to appreciate the local teams there and the whole sport itself. While I love my country, I am also quite aware that the US is in the group of death and there's no way that we're beating Portugal or Ghana or Germany. I'm rooting for Spain and England though (their losses have been quite devastating - I trash talked a lot of people and I've been eating my words all week!) Who are you rooting for?
  • Wearing: Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple' - I seriously love this nail polish color - it's just so pretty and flattering! The perfect summer polish!
  • Reading: Wornontv.net - This site shows you where to buy all the clothes some TV show characters wear! I love looking through all the Arrow and New Girl outfits. A lot of them are way out of my price range but sometimes I'll find Zooey Deschanel's character wore something from Modcloth (that I can actually afford) and it'll make me so happy. 
  • Listening: Sara Jackson-Homan's 'Cellophane' - something about this song just summed up my week perfectly. I had it on repeat on my way to work every single day. 
  • Eating: Flamin' Hot Cheetos - I'm kind of a sucker for hot cheetos! They're ridiculously addictive and so spicy! Love love love!
  • Playing: 'Elevate' App on iPhone - I like a good challenge and this app definitely offers that. Elevate helps one your communication skills through varying games. I love playing it on my way to work - kind of gets me started for a challenging day!
Thanks for reading!

  6. That's such sweet words about your dad! My family has been living in Canada for quite a few generations, so I'm sure my upbringing and my parents' upbringing have been different than say, your parents. I think we take certain things for granted, but we still try to make these "holidays" nice!

    OMG to Cheetos. I used to be obsessed with those, and don't even remember the last time I ate one!! That's probably a good thing...

  11. We have been watching so much World Cup around here too! I'm hoping the US can pull off at least one game, buuut I think we all know the reality, haha. I'm rooting for Italy as my "second" team, so I was pleased with their win over England ;)
