Most of my posts are based off of something I have recently encountered. This usually revolves around food, or a memorable run. Seeing as I have eaten the same thing for literally 6 days straight, and the only memorable run was a 4 miler I went on two days ago, this post will be a bit different.
Since I don’t really know what to write about, I will just write about good things that have happened to me recently. For starters, my best friend/manfriend bought me the new Mumford and Sons CD. This entire CD speaks to my inner girly parts and makes me swoon like doves at a wedding. Seriously..go buy this cd if you’re into this kind of music.
Like I said earlier, I ate just about the same thing for 6 days. This means I survived off of maybe $5 for the entire week. This leads me to believe I could survive in the wilderness. If you are struggling to find that correlation then keep thinking.
I quit my job. Yup. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit scared at first about being unemployed, but I see it as an opportunity to grow and explore. I can focus more on school, on my relationships, on my family, and on myself. I didn’t plan to retire at Trader Joe’s, so it’s time to get back on focus with what I really want in life. Basically my comfort blanket needs to be yanked away. My back will thank me soon.
I’ve started drinking tea again. The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting colder. This means blankets, snogging, tea, and movies. Speaking of movies, I watched the Lorax last week and never have I ever wanted to grow a tree so badly in my life. Anyway..tea time is me time.
I started school. Now, this isn’t wonderful necessarily..but the outcome should be. SHOULD BE. Along with trying to find the good things in everyday life, my attitude needs a serious check. I am done with negative thoughts and fears. If I tell myself I will fail..then I will. If I tell myself I will get a 3.9 in microbiology..I will get a 3.9. Stay tuned for the outcome on that.
I miss running when I am not running. Sort of a mouthful sentence, but what I am trying to say is that I find myself missing running these days. I still get out and run a few times a week, but I used to not want to run. Now I find myself missing it. Yay me.
Over the course of the past year I have managed to loose over 20 pounds. I wasn’t even trying. In the past 3 months I have managed to loose a good 10 pounds and tone up tremendously. Thank you running and eating vegan. This just goes to show that eating healthy, and being active is an amazing tool when it comes to loosing weight. Even for someone like me that wasn’t trying to diet or loose anything, I did. I am now at my healthiest weight and happiest body type.
My goals and aspirations are coming back..slowly. Over the past 5 years I have been working towards a career and been shot down twice when I applied to the program. This has been a huge blow to my ego, to my self worth, and to my perseverance. Well, after taking a year off of school it’s time to get back at it. All I need is this micro grade and I am able to apply to a different state for a new opportunity at the same career path. I need all the positivity I can muster! Eventually the crazy girl that never gave up will get a spot right?
Q: What’s something wonderful that has happened to you recently?
