Currently

Today I decided to do a life update post, the first of many to come. My friend Juliana posted couple months ago a Currently post in which she talk about things she was loving, books she was reading, drinks she was enjoying, and overall an update. I really enjoyed reading it and I thought it would be such a interesting post make and share. If you haven't already checked out her blog click here, and now lets get into my currently...
This might sound very self-center, conceited, even selfish but lately I've been really loving myself. I think loving yourself is so important. Couple years ago I really disliked myself and how things were going and I relied on other people to make me happy. However, for the past year I have grown a lot and have learned to love myself, my flaws, and even my mistakes. I know I can't be perfect but I shouldn't hate myself. When I learned to love myself I gained the confidence to venture out more. I started blogging which is something I've been currently loving. With that, I've also learned to edit more and even some minor coding. I've also started being more confident when I speak and I learned to open up myself to more people. Which was always a hard thing for me to do but I've been loving all the relationships I have gain. Besides all these things that I've learned to do that I've been loving, I also have small things that I've been loving like wearing boots, watching Halloween movies, and eating healthy.  
For years I've been ordering a Venti Iced Coffee from Starbucks but recently I've changed my usual to a Grande Iced Caramel Macchiato w/ an additional pump of Pumpkin Spice. I came up with this concoction when Starbucks had the Pumpkin Spice Whip Creme. I loved the hint of pumpkin flavor it gave the coffee, since I'm not a fan of their Pumpkin Spice Frapp or Latte. It's just too much Pumpkin flavor. However, in my concoction its the perfect amount of coffee, caramel, and pumpkin spice. I recommend you all to try it. 
Back when Bates Motel first started I was so into the show, I was watching it every week. However, after the second season I couldn't keep up with the show like I was and totally forgot about it. I was even reminded by my siblings that the 3rd season was so good. I kept wanting to go back and watch it but I would always forgot. Couple weeks ago while I was having lunch with Ricky and some of his co-workers, we were talking about how great of an actor Freddie Highmore (Norman) is and one of his co-workers told me I had to watch it, that season 4 ended so good! So I was finally convinced to watch it and I am currently on the 4th season and I cant wait for season 5 to come back on television. Next, another show I have been really loving is AHS: Roanoke. I have been watching AHS since season 1. The Hotel season kind of threw me off a bit but I went back and re-watched the season and it was good. I just really disliked Lady Gaga's character but anyways, so far Roanoke has been really interesting! I am really looking forward to the rest of this season. Another show I recently got into was Haters Back Off! Its a Netflix original based of the Youtube sensation Miranda Sings. I've never been a fan of that character but I really do enjoy seeing Colleen Ballinger main Channel and her vlogs. So I decided to give her show a try since the trailer reminded me a lot of Napoleon Dynamite and when I was younger I was a huge fan of Napoleon Dynamite. Also, Angela Martin from The Office comes out on the show and she's great as Miranda's Mom. 
If you don't have Spotify installed on your phone or computer you should, it such a good App! #notsponsored I love the variety of music they have, they literally almost have everything you can think of. I have a few of my own playlist that I have created but lately I've been enjoying listening to their 90's Smash Hits playlist. It has your favorite 90's songs from RnB to Rock. Listening to this playlist makes my day go by so much faster at work. Another playlist I've been listening to is The Get Down Soundtrack - Netflix playlist. This playlist is based from the Netflix original series The Get Down. It's a variety of Disco and Hip-Hop songs, hearing this playlist gets me in such a good mood. I must warn you some of the songs might make you want to dance like Cadillac. (Extra brownie points if you get that!)
Next month, Ricky and I will be celebrating our 9 Year Anniversary. I am planning something small together. We never really do anything for our anniversary but this time I wanted to plan something. I'm thinking of a day together out in San Francisco, maybe we'll grab coffee at one of the shops near Valencia street and visit some of the museums. However there also an restaurant here in San Jose that I've been wanting to try called Zona Rosa. It's a South-of-the-border, hacienda-style eatery known for innovative Mexican-fusion cuisine & drinks. I've been wanting to go there, it really reminds me of one of our favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. I think I might have to surprise Ricky and take him there. There's so many things we can do. Currently I am not involving him in the planning but if I can't decided I might have to ask him. 

I really hope you enjoy reading this Currently post, maybe you'll start watching, hearing or drinking some of the things I talked about. Let me know if you do, I love to chat about shows, music, and etc.
