Eating... You know how you can make mugcakes? Well I decided to make a mugcookie using this recipe. It took me less than five minutes and it was delicious! Next time I make one though I will definitely be sharing, it was a bit of a sugar overload!

Waiting... For Australia Day! Not only is it a public holiday but it is the day that the BF flies back home (FIFO life, aye). 3 days left...

Enjoying... House sitting! It's nice to have a whole house to yourself for a week. No one to judge when you're feeling too lazy to make dinner, so you have cheese and crackers and the chance to be as loud as I want in the mornings. Bliss!

Wearing... I took advantage of Modcloth's recent sale and I bought some new dresses! These are the ones here, here and here. They're a little different to what I usually wear but it always fun to try on something new!

Trying... New recipes! My Pinterest addiction has inspired me to try some new recipes but... they haven't always worked. Some have just not worked and others have just tasted plain weird.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watching...  The Shannara Chronicles. This new TV series is based on the high fantasy Shannara series written by Terry Brooks. I'm four episode in and I'm already addicted! It's been described as Tolkien meets George Lucas and I think that is a pretty good description of what you can expect. The Shannara Chronicles follow a group of hero's on their quest to prevent the Ellcrys tree from dying, thus unleashing and army of demons and causing the end of the world.

Reading...  Lady of No Man's Land by Jeanne Williams. Kirsten is Swedish immigrant intent on running her own homestead and this book follows her on her journey exploring the wild plains and saving enough money to build a home. Combining the western and romance genres this book is definitely a guilty pleasure!

Playing...  Munchkin! This card game spoofs major role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons and is absolute hilarious with item cards like 'Knee Pads of Allure' and 'Rat on a Stick. I was given an expansion pack for Christmas, so it's been one of my go to games this month

Waiting...  On packages! I've ordered a few things online and I'm desperately waiting for them to arrive.

Doing... Through Open Universities Australia, I have just started my first free online course. The one I'm doing is called Becoming Human: Anthropology (BeHuman) and runs for about a month. It focuses on evolution, including how we evolved from primates and became human. Hopefully I'll be able to stick with it!

Day 7: Reading
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watching...  Legends of Tomorrow will be starting up soon and to understand the characters better I've decided to start watching Arrow. I know I'm a little late to the party with this one but I'm slowly catching up!

Reading...  I've only just started this book and I'm really enjoying it so far! Perfected by Kate Jarvik Birch is about a future where the government has passed legislation allowing genetically engineered humans to be kept as pets. It's an interesting concept and the story reminds me of The Jewel by Amy Ewing, another YA book I read recently.

Playing...  I've been playing Fallout 4 for a while now and I'm getting to the point where I need to choose which faction I should support for the main story line quest. The Minute Men, Brotherhood of Steel, The Railroad or The Institute! I've been putting it off for a while by focusing on side quests but I'm itching to find out how the story ends.

Thinking...  A couple of my friends have just moved houses and that has definitely got me thinking about my own dream house. I've been spending way too much time on Pinterest and finding ideas for what I could do with my future home.

Feeling...   Ready for a holiday! It's only been a week since the Christmas/New Years break but I still haven't got into the swing of things. I'm really missing all that free time.
