Thursday Thoughts

Tangents and other random musings.

  1. Plyometrics feel like death – sometimes I think I’m in decent shape, then I take a cardio class full of plyo and I realize um, not so much. My legs were on fire! And it was only a 30 minute class, wimp. I know plyo is sooo good for you, but ouch. And my legs are still dead from the spin and yoga classes I took yesterday
  2. Hydration is important – and I suck at it. Lame water consumption + plyo = leg cramps. Not fun, go drink some water right now. Seriously.
  3. If you go to the gas station on the nice side of town it will be more expensive – Lesson learned. $10 didn’t even get me 3 gallons of gas. That depresses me a lot.
  4. Buying snacks at the Fresh Market on the nice side of town will be equally expensive – and there was a Kroger right down the street, I’m such a little dummy sometimes. I was trying to find some snacks to bring with me to work that were quick and not messy, I ended up with an apple, a bag of baby carrots and a Think Thin bar, not bad.
  5. Dogs should be able to get a drivers license.ImageHow could that possible end badly?
  6. Maybe I would sleep better if I slept like this:
    ImageHe actually sleeps like that, I’m hoping it’s more comfortable than it looks. Or he at least dreams about being superman. He purrs when you rub his belly, it makes me smile.
  7. My dad is getting mad at me for chewing my vegetables too loudly
    Health-freak problems. Don’t hate on my cruciferous vegetables, the louder the better. I have to get in my daily 359389 grams of fiber.
  8. Gullah Gullah Island was an amazing show.
    and the theme song has been stuck in my head all day, and I don’t hate it. I miss 90s kid’s shows. That was some quality entertainment. I also miss Bananas in Pajamas and Blue’s Clues, quality television right there. Can we go just back to 1997 for a little while?
  9. Harry Potter is on TV.
    My evening is complete.

Almost Summer and a Few Tangents

Oh hey May, what’s up? It’s good to see you, bring me some summertime.

Today was the last day of class, which means only a week until summer! To say I’m excited is an understatement. I. Am. So. Ready.

I love Boone and I love school but things are starting to get incredibly overwhelming and I really need some quality time at home with my family. I’ve been more stressed out this semester than I have ever been in my entire schooling career, and while I’m grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had in the past couple months, I need some time to regroup and gear up for senior year.

Today was crazy and involved 2 exams, a yoga teacher audition, 5 hours of sleep, and one terrible stress-induced tummy ache. Let’s not talk about it, let’s talk about puppies instead.

Seriously. I volunteered at Walk-A-Puppy event yesterday to raise money for the local humane society. College kids will pay lots of money to walk puppies.

The dogs were so excited to get outside and would not stop running around. Hence the fantastic photos. It was lots of fun and we raised a good chunk of change for a good cause, and only had one doggy escape incident, but we got him back.

Puppies make everything better.

Today was my yoga teacher audition, I think it went fairly well, I was a ball of nerves but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I would love to be a yoga teacher, but if not I’m still very happy with my Pilates job, so either way I’ll be happy.

Completely unrelated but, I GOT A SCHOLARSHIP. I’m a little excited about it. Who doesn’t love free money? No one. Feels good that my hard work is paying off for something, maintaining a good GPA can be tough.

This evening I went to the last Power Yoga class of the semester. Which is sad, I love that class and I’ll miss it this summer. It was a great class though. Yoga is amazing after a stressful day, it’s how I’ve managed to maintain my sanity this semester. Thank you yoga.

Speaking of yoga:

I joined RunToTheFinish‘s 30 Day Yoga Challenge for May. Another excuse to do some yoga? Yes please. It has been going swimmingly so far. Minus yesterday, studying and general stressing got in the way, but I did 130 minutes of yoga today, I think that makes up for it. I want to try taking classes in a real yoga studio over the summer, when I have free time and a somewhat disposable income, I think it would be an awesome experience. Well, any yoga is an awesome experience.

Did I mention I love yoga?

Well, I’ve got some assignments to finish up, because someone forgot to tell my professors that classes are over. Bye!
