Around the Web

This is going to be quick because I’ve a test and paper due tomorrow (oh, the joys of exam time!). Well, exam time means there’s a good chunk of time spend surfing the web ignoring all the projects I have piling up. Just kidding. A little. I thought I’d share some fun things I’ve found around the internet lately.

Several cat videos are about to happen, just a warning. They are the ultimate productivity suck.

I found my next workout routine for when Best Body Bootcamp wraps up:

True life, I’ve actually tried to bicep curl my cat before. Unfortunately she only weighs 7lbs so it wasn’t much of a workout. Thanks to this video I know realize the key is a cat in each hand. Watch out kitties.

I know this video is all over the place but I seriously die laughing every single time I see it. I don’t think it will ever get old.

I just want to know what cat would actually let you dress them up in a shark costume, because I want one. I think my hands would be shredded if I attempted that my cats.

16 Sasst Tweets from The Nation’s 16th Largest School District – I don’t know if this should make me proud of my former school district, or just worried for education.

9 Myths & Misconceptions about Pilates – I think I’ve heard every single one of these since becoming a Pilates and they’re just not true. Pilates is awesome and I think everyone should do it. I might be a little biased about that 🙂

I’m currently completely obsessed with this song. Like listen to it 10+ a day everyday kind of obsessed, I can’t get enough!

I’m also obsessed with Macklemore‘s album “The Heist”. I bought it before my 10-miler for a little new music to push me through those 10 miles and it’s pretty fantastic.

I also think Macklemore’s face is pretty fantastic. Actually, I think I just like a man in Batman footie pajamas.

Maybe I shouldn’t admit that.

99U by Behance – while their articles are mainly design-focused, they have some really great articles about more general topics like cultivating creativity and business advice. Plus because the website if for designers, the design is beautiful, is it bad that I immediately judge websites based on how pretty they are? I just can’t take a poorly designed website seriously, I just can’t.

62 Gluten Free Dessert Recipes – thanks to Greatist, I am drooling already.

Tina’s adding some exciting new features to the next round of Best Body Bootcamp, which you should definitely check out because it’s an AMAZING program.

Tuesday Tangents

I think my brain is officially dead. Thank goodness there’s only 3 days until spring break. This girl needs some major sleep.

Enter tangents, because cohesiveness is not happening tonight.

  1. The guy sitting next to me in my 8 AM class was dipping. First off, EWWW! Dipping is pretty much the nastiest habit you could have, it’s a million times worse than smoking in my opinion. Two, 8 AM!? Seriously? Why is it necessary to dip at 8 AM? Three, I’m pretty sure tobacco is banned in all campus buildings, but of course my professor didn’t say anything. I don’t think I’ll be able to look at a Gatorade bottle for a while. Ewewewewew.
  2. My leg still hurts. I’m dying to go for run, hurry up and feel better leg!Photo0918
  3. Only four people came to my Pilates class tonight, but I actually really enjoyed having a smaller class. They were all regulars so I got to work them extra hard and throw in more advanced exercises I don’t usually get to teach. I also accidentally turned on a running playlist instead of my Pilates playlist (hey P’s are right next to R’s!) so we did Pilates to Ke$ha. I didn’t hate it and I think my Thursday class will be getting some Ke$ha as well 🙂
  4. Sometimes I eat really weird things in the name of protein:peanut butter egg whites
    Scrambled egg whites with peanut butter, a teeny squirt of honey, cinnamon and vanilla. Sweet scrambled eggs? Why not. My roommates think I’m crazy when I eat things like this.
  5. This article about mindful awareness is pretty awesome. I will definitely be incorporating some of these tips into my life because I’m about as unmindful as it gets at the moment.
  6. I’ve applied for eight internships in the past 2 days, EIGHT! Someone please hire me, I would really like to graduate college.
  7. There are not enough kittens on my Pinterest home page and that needs to change.

    Much better.

  8. Ginger tea is amazing, it seriously clears all my tummy aches right up. And I’m a ginger fanatic so it’s pretty tasty too.
  9. I start a weight training class tomorrow, I’m taking it as a one hour elective because I’m determined to squeeze in at least one elective before I graduate college, crazy schedule or not. And I’m ready to get some muscles. I’m also keeping my eyes peeled for an opening in a Swimming for Non-Swimmers class though because it would also be pretty awesome to learn how to swim before I graduate college.
  10. I’m obsessed with the song Thrift Shop. I know I’m a little late to the party, but I can’t stop listening to it. Seriously, I put it on repeat every morning while I get ready, it pumps me up for the day.
    Today I also realized just how sporadic my taste in music is, today my music alternated between Thrift Shop, Jesus music, George Gershwin, Mumford & Sons and Ke$ha. Makes no sense, but I love it.

What are your tangents for today?

What’s a habit other people have that you can’t stand?
