Currently-March 2016 edition

It’s time for the March Edition of Currently. So! I am Currently….

 

WATCHING

Nothing. In fact, I think we are about to disconnect this cable, get another Roku or Apple TV and be done with cable. I am TIRED of paying an arm and 2 legs for cable. AND IT KEEPS GOING UP. We don’t watch enough premium channels for it to be worth it. My only concern is  ESPN( CDub) and local tv. I’ve been told to get a HD antenna but..I admit to being slightly bougie. LOL. I might downgrade all the way to minimal cable with internet and still get the Roku for everything else. Has anyone else ditched cable completely and gone to an online TV based life? Share your thoughts!!!

 

READING

 

I’ve read this book…I have no idea how many times. NOW, I got the illustrated version for Pookah and we are making our way through it. HE LOVES IT! And for his age, the photos really help give his immagination a boost.  I love sharing one of my favorite series of all time with him. I can’t wait to do more.

LISTENING

A Tribe Called Quest…Leaders of the New School…Busta Rymes…De La Soul…Yeah since the death of Phife Dawg, I’ve been enjoying all my 90s hip hop.

MAKING

Guys. I made a Gluten Free Banana Nut Bread the other day…It.Was.So. Damn.Good. It was gone so quick I didn’t get to take not ONE photo.  I promise to share this recipe soon. Cause I’m gonna make it again. Like soon. Real soon.

FEELING

Honored. YOU GUYS! On Tuesday I got word that I was nominated for an Iris Award in the Best Photography category!!! To say I was stunned would be an understatement! I am so honored and stunned that there are people out there who follow along and enjoy my photography enough to nominate me. And the congrats and support I’ve received in the last few days has been phenomenal. I can’t thank everyone enough. Now I have to find something to wear! OMG!

LOVING

passion planner

The Passion Planner. Look, yes, I am a planner addict. I got the Passion Planner at the end of Last year and decided for a month to try both. I forgot about it…of course…and then picked it up again and used it for a solid month in March. I mean..it’s so intuitive for me and I love it! Its not pretty but it’s really really practical.  What planner are you using?

 

PLANNING

THE RELEASE OF MY EBOOK.  I placed that in all caps for a reason…..It’s coming out in April. That gives me a due date. Telling you all holds me accountable.  Make sure you are signed up for my newsletter to get news and maybe a discount when it’s released!

Well that’s  that is all for this month! April is going to be SOOOO busy! My ebook release, my 40th Birthday, Mom 2.0…..

Bring it!

    I can’t get rid of cable…I am sorry. I can downgrade it but completely get rid of it….I can’t unless I am bout near homeless. I don’t even watch tv like that but I need my tv as an option because some days I want to just sit and watch whats going on. Yay and congrats on the nomination as I have said you are already a winner in my book.

    We’ve thought about getting rid of Directv, but the sports access is a major issue. We haven’t had premium channels in years because we weren’t watching them either. We do have friends who’ve ditched cable and never looked back.

    I’ve been listening to Tribe a lot lately too. Hip hop was so great in the 90s.

    Congrats on your nomination! You deserve it your work is beyond great!

    So many exciting things await you this spring! Congrats on your nomination and YES, Roku is amazing and if you or your husband has the patience and willing to search forums for how-tos I’ve “heard” there are hacks to get what you want on it 😉

    Omg we’re cutting the cable cord tomorrow. We’re going with the Playstation Vue service (we have a PS4 and a PS3) and it’s cable but all streaming and $29-44 depending on what package you get. We’ve tried it for a week and haven’t noticed a difference so far. And we get the kid channels, I get food network and IFC, and the mister gets his ESPN.

    Congrats on the book!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, confession: I’ve never seen a HP movie or read an HP book. I’m waiting till Addy becomes interested and we’ll do it together.

    Congratulations on a couple of fronts! E book and big milestone birthday 🙂 . We had cable when we were still in the U.S but downgraded to the lowest plan and just added an extra 10 dollars for hubby to watch his Italian team. In Spain now, we pay about 35 dollars a month for basic and have an amazon fire stick. I don’t mind as l can switch between English and Spanish thankfully. It’s painful to watch all these old shows dubbed 🙁 .

    Congrats on the award nomination! I keep hearing about the Passion Planner. I use a journal by Myleik Teele: http://www.mytaughtyou.com/22/my-store.htm

    Apart from the cover, it’s nothing fancy – just a really durable journal that you can write all of your ideas in and your daily to do list. I never leave home without it. It keeps me so focused.

    Wishing you a great month ahead!

    I am a cordcutter (meaning I do not pay for cable). I personally prefer watching things through my computer. Some of my favorite things to watch are through Amazon Prime (I pay a yearly fee for deliveries and movies are included). I enjoy downloading and streaming various television shows. It puts the power of what you want to watch when you want to watch it in your own hands and eliminates the cost of expensive cable television! 😀

    I feel you on the cable bill it we’re big tv watchers. Including the two Roku’s we have. I’ve been catching up on American Crime & Holly Robinson Peete’s new show for Peete’s Sake.

    Congrats again on your dope award.

    I love your logo image. Very pretty. Between cable and cell phone, I swear that’s a car payment.

    I am with you on the cable. I have a smart TV so I really watch more Youtube videos than cable and I have Netflix. I have cable just in case but seriously I watch everything online!
