Things I’m Loving

Honestly my life has been pretty eventful and not very blog-worthy. I’m up to my eyeballs in work, like every other student right now I’m sure. And the most exciting part of my day is getting to eat dinner. Sad. I do have some fun things planned for the weekend though!

I figured a list of fun things I love right now would be much more exciting than the lackluster events of my Thursday.

  1. YogaI’m on such a yoga kick lately and it’s doin my body good. I took a Power Yoga class tonight it was fantastic. I was feeling sick this morning (dizzy, nauseous and not fun) I even skipped out on my first class. Falling down or puking is generally not an encouraged class activity. I felt a little better as the day went on, then I went to yoga and felt 9842754829485x better. No exaggeration. I felt so strong and like a bad-ass yogi. Not so much, but nice to pretend. So, I’m going to listen to my body and do yoga all the live long day.

  2. Detangler: I have really fine hair, but a ton of it and get tangles like crazy. My hair is borderline dreadlocks after a post-run shower. So I bought this stuff:

  3.  This body wash. It’s made with beer, which is kind of weird so of course I love it. It still smells a little like beer, which I think makes it more fun. I got a free sample of it the other weekend when I was at Earthfare. I’m such a sucker for free samples. They’re free. And the company is out Asheville, NC, which makes them local. Double bonus.
  4. THE WEATHER. It was gorgeous today. We’ve had a lot of thunderstorms lately, which is weird for Boone, but when it clears up it’s beautiful. And all the flowers are blooming, it’s so refreshing to see again.

  5. Salads I’ve had salads for lunch and dinner almost everyday. Excessive? Maybe, but I love vegetables. No one can say I’m not getting enough fiber, that’s for sure.
  6. Hiking I’m going tomorrow and I’m very excited, hopefully the weather will cooperate!

What are you loving lately?

Happy Spring!

It’s finally officially Spring! Even though Mother Nature has been tricking me into thinking it’s spring for the first month, the weather feels even better now that it’s official. Except it just started raining. Oh well.

(Actually this picture was taken last June, but that’s not important)

Spring is my favorite season because the weather is BEE-YOU-TIFUL, the flowers start blooming, everything stops looking so dead, it stops snowing (even though it never started this year – not complaining) and delicious fruit at the farmer’s market. I will be at the farmer’s market first thing when April comes. Fresh berries make life wonderful, they really do.

Springtime also means that my birthday is right around the corner. I turn 21 in 27 days, not that I’m counting or anything. Okay, I am, I’m excited.

Today has been one whirlwind of a day! I was up at 6:30 the morning (ugh, I need a nap!) to sign up for internship interviews for Friday (ack, I’m nervous!). Then I met with my advisor to talk about the classes I need to take next year. Then I had 2 classes and went to a Pilates class (felt amazing!) a good Pilates class always makes me feel 1000% better about my day. Then I registered for classes (18 hours worth, and class on Friday, gross).

Speaking of Pilates I get to start assisting with classes next Sunday! I’m excited! But I’m glad they’re giving me a chance to assist before they throw me in a class by myself. It’s so helpful to watch people that know what they’re doing while I’m working on my own teaching skills. Plus it means I’ll start getting a paycheck. Bonus.

A weird thing happened to me today during lunch. I picked up a Chobani from the market on campus. I thought I picked up a strawberry banana flavor.

But then I looked down at it again and the lid said mango, so I thought “oh I’m just delusional and grabbed a mango one instead” 6 hours of terrible sleep will do that to you. So I ate my mango Chobani, which was delicious because I’m convinced Chobani can’t make anything gross. Then after I finished it I looked down again and discovered I wasn’t crazy and it was a mango Chobani in a strawberry banana container with a mango lid. I felt much less crazy after that, but still a little confused.

At least it was still delicious.

 

Have you ever had any weird food packaging issues?
Are you equally excited for spring? (Correct answer is yes, just kidding, kind of)
