Sunday List

Here is a little Sunday List that I found on the blog Julia, translated of course so I could understand the Swedish...

My name is Paula Bowron. It took me a long time to ever publish my full name on the internet. But as my name was published last year by others, it no longer seems to matter. And it is my full name from which my blog name was derived.

I am currently catching up with blog posts, I have just listed some items to sell on eBay and I have eaten some pop tarts with a pot of chai tea.

I do not like noise. More so as today is Sunday and it feels like such a good day for peace and quiet. I rarely have the TV on in the background, much preferring the calmness of solitude and silence.

I'm good at listening. I have always been more of a listener than a talker. I empathise well and enjoy listening to others, as long as they are prepared to return the favour and not talk incessantly about themselves.

I'm bad at being patient. Once I decide I want something, I want it now. Although I am trying to get better at this as I get older.

I read 'What I Talk About When I Talk About Running' by Haruki Murakami. I'm re-reading this for the second time, as I am currently trying to teach myself how to run. I remember thoroughly enjoying this book the first time around and thought it would be very good for inspiration again. I only started it yesterday and am almost finished it.

I like it when the summer turns to autumn and the air becomes crisp, with the promise of Christmas just around the corner. A long way off but something to look forward to.

I sing badly.

I love taking pictures. Photography really makes me see the world around me. Even better when visiting a new city. 

I'm not very good at being observant. In the point above, having a camera in my hand really encourages this in me.

I prefer sweet over savoury. I can always eat a cake or pastry but am not so bothered by savoury food.

I like to buy fewer items of quality. I know I will love them for years to come, over throw-away fashion.

I have on my pyjama bottoms and a loose sweatshirt/t-shirt.

I depend on myself. I try not to depend on others and not have expectations. That way there is little disappointment.

I drink tea. I've always been a big coffee drinker but lately tea has been my beverage of choice. I'm making so many cups of tea in fact, that my electricity bill has just gone up because of it.

I'm listening to Au Revoir Simone's Move in Spectrums that I have been listening to repeatedly since it came out last year.

I get angry at bitchiness and pettiness.

I am afraid of spiders. Ugh.

I wish that I could have the courage and financial stability to be able to work for myself.

I'm embarassingly bad at some social situations, as much as I enjoy the company of others, I am mostly comfortable in my own surroundings.

I grew up in a really small town in North East England. I always knew I needed to live in a city, so moved to one over ten years ago.
