October Currents

oct-curr

Many moons ago, I stumbled upon a roundup list on a blog and I must admit, I kinda loved it. So I decided to recreate this list with my own monthly currents and hopefully inspire you guys to keep a monthly list as well. It’s a good way to keep track of the things you’re into, when you’re into them.

Listening: Badlands by Halsey. Sounds perfect with the dropping temperature and moodier days.

Dreaming: Of moving to LA. Maybe. I’m always a toss-up, but so is LA.

Feeling: Calm for the most part. If I begin to think about my to-do lists, stress will creep in. But I’m mostly calm.

Following: A lot of yoga accounts, like this one. How does homegirl bend like that??

Grateful: For the experiences I’ve had in life so far, and for all the adventures still to come.

Eating: A lot of kale. Idc if it’s not a trendy food anymore, still love it.

Hoping: That the year will get easier, but will still finish with many interesting turns. My life is a tv show, after all.

Waiting: For Thanksgiving break to come soon so I can get some real fall in Massachusetts!

Watching: Baby Daddy. Haha, the binge is real.

Reading: Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi. Technically, I started the book in June, but never got around to finishing it. Oops. This list will keep me accountable. The book is good so far!

Proud: That I haven’t had a total meltdown yet this semester. It’s the little things that count.

Lovely Things: Vol. 1

Hello friends!

Fall is most definitely upon us, and even here in Florida there is a slight, cool breeze shaking us from our endless summers. As I was rummaging through the interwebs lately, I came across some things and felt the need to share them with you all. Hope you guys enjoy the collection of images that inspired me this week!

1. This indulgence makes me wish I actually knew what I was doing in a kitchen.

Hurricane Shenanigans

ss-161004-hurricane-matthew-hispaniola-02_2dc9325e61319c85222a1f78b4cb48b8-nbcnews-ux-1024-900

Well, hello there friends!

For those of us that find ourselves on the east coast, namely the sunshiny state of Florida, hurricane Matthew is coming in hot like a perfectly glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut!

However, hailing from the north, I know jack squat about these bad boys. Seriously, the closest thing I got to one was a measly tropical storm passing through Massachusetts as I then proceeded to place a laundry basket over my head and crouch in a corner of my house.

So!

I did what every millennial does in times of trouble and googled stuff. Here’s what I got.

Hurricane Supplies Checklist:

  1. Water. I guess that’s important, to make coffee and such.
  2. Food. Yep, another biggie. Definitely stocking up on Boom Chicka Pop and avocados.
  3. Alternative power sources. Basically, charge your electronics NOW and have lots of candles and a lighter/matches nearby.
  4. Cash. Who carries cash these days??
  5. First aid kit. I have bandages and Zzzquil. I’m good.
  6. Waterproof mascara matches. This is a thing?
  7. Personal hygiene. Dry shampoo, tp, face masks. Got it.
  8. Battery-operated radio. LOL.
  9. Dry clothes and blankets. Ain’t no water getting in my closet. And this is Florida, what does one need blankets for?
  10. Shutters/storm panels. Um, I don’t even know what to do with these.
  11. Entertainment items. Homework! Lots and lots of homework!
  12. Patience. This is my favorite one.

I think it’s safe to say I’m pretty much a pro now at dealing with hurricanes. Jk, I’m still a hot mess.

Stay safe fam.

Welcome to Wanted and Wild, a blog about, *drumroll please*… feeling wanted while still being wild.

For those who haven’t stalked me on social media yet, my name is Priscila Silva, this blog’s fearless writer (jk, spiders freak me out). Honesty is a great place to start and i’m gonna keep it 100: I really had no desire to start a blog since everyone and their mothers have a blog these days, BUT! I am taking a class in Uni this year which basically forces me to make a blog or else I fail šŸ™‚

So here we are. What an adventure this will be! I promise I’ll have decent things to say every once in a while, so stick around. Stalk me on theĀ gramĀ if you haven’t already.

peace in the middle east,

-PriscilašŸ’«
