If we were on a coffee date… #9

August 8, 2016

If we were on a coffee date, I would tell you I’m excited because it looks like I will become a New Zealand citizen pretty soon. I got a letter in the mail that said I’ve been granted citizenship, but it won’t be official until I’ve attended the Citizenship Ceremony. At this stage I have no idea when the ceremony will be, but they said they’ll let me know a couple of weeks in advance. Fingers crossed it will be in the next couple of months.

If we were on a coffee date, I’d tell you that I’m a bit over Pokemon Go. It was fun for a while, but now I can’t seem to find any of the Pokemon I don’t have, and taking over gyms is a waste of time because someone just takes them back straight away, and you hardly get any experience points from fighting the gyms. Jeremy’s still pretty addicted to it though.

If we were on a coffee date, I’d let you know that I’m really into Amigurumi at the moment. I only discovered it the other day and have since made a few things. I’m nowhere near as good at it as I want to be, but practice makes perfect, right? I’m also so hard on myself, and always seem to think what I make could be a lot better. I guess I’m a bit of a perfectionist. But I’m pretty happy with a few things I’ve made so far. I will continue practicing.


If we were on a coffee date, I’d probably complain that I feel old. I really do. Not old as in looks, but as in behaviour. I just notice how uninterested I am in a late night in town, or parties in general. I’m happy attending drinks for a few hours, but then I just feel like heading home to watch some TV or just relax. I used to go to work drinks pretty much every Friday back in the day. These days, I hardly ever go.

If we were on a coffee date, I would let you know that it’s only 120 days until we head off to Sweden. That’s just over 4 months away. I can’t wait, but at the same time it stresses me out, because I know how much we’ll need to sort out before then. Well, it doesn’t matter, I’m just super excited to be able to see my family again! I can’t believe it’s been over 3 years since I was back home last.


If we were on a coffee date, I’d tell you I’ve been a lot less stressed lately. Getting a new job has definitely helped, and I wake up in the morning actually feeling excited about going to work. It’s been quite some time since I felt that way. My new job isn’t that different from my last, but just the fact that it’s a different company helps recharge your batteries a bit. I’m loving it at the moment.

If we were on a coffee date, I would probably look really tired, because I haven’t been sleeping a lot lately. I go to bed way too late, and I never seem to learn from my mistakes. I just don’t want to waste the time I have in the evening. I know sleep is important, but life is short, and there are lots of things I want to do, even if that thing sometimes is just watching a TV episode. Sleep sometimes feel like a waste of time. I guess that’s not really a healthy way of thinking about it!
