Finally A Good Day
I have a happy post for you guys! Isn’t that fantastic? I’m not sure what the turnaround can completely be attributed to, but fingers crossed this means the emotional rollercoaster is starting to settle down and I’m getting more stable.
Firstly, I managed to finish day 4 of the Run Streak. Again I did a simple loop around my neighborhood just before sunset. The weather was absolutely PERFECT for running.
I was worried I might start to feel a little sore, but actually I feel quite fine. I’m sure the short runs will really pay off for my upcoming soccer games as being able to endure quick bursts of speed is a total must.
I have to make a confession now. Firstly, I’m kind of digging running skorts at the moment. I got an order from Dick’s and had to wear almost everything. My second confession is that I totally copied Cherie’s style with the tank, it just looked so fab on her I HAD to have it. However, I made sure to get a different color so we weren’t totally the same. Love ya, girl! ;)
Awkward pose, blurry pic FTW! Apparently Scott saw me running along the road as he was heading to look at a house with his real estate agent. Too funny. She commented, “Wow… she really likes bright stuff.” Who doesn’t? Cars can see you better, btw. Skort and top both Under Armour. I should really get a second job through them, it’d at least save me some money. ;)
Since today is June 1st, I’m yet again participating in the #photoaday challenge. Today was morning, and no morning can even start to begin without this shiz.
Coffee and I will never part. I don’t care how many people lament or praise caffeine. It was just meant to be. I can’t even fathom that there was a point I refused to try the stuff. I’d like to personally thank Wawa for opening up my eyes to the wonders of the tasty beverage (btw, I love Kona, if you ever want to send me any, hehe).
And now, two FANTASTIC announcements. With my recent singleness and sorting through the whole, “omg where is my life going?” conundrum, I’ve decided to say screw overpaying on my bills (I am blessed to have this option, thank the cosmos), and booked not one, but TWO trips this summer. In wonderous July I will be jetting to the West Coast and experiencing the beauty of San Diego for the first time ever. Both my brothers live there and I cannot wait to see them and their lovely city. One lives near downtown, the other within walking distance to the beach. It’s going to be a tough choice to couch surf which place, but I hope I can divide my time evenly. The second fantastic trip I booked is to Glasgow, Scotland in August! A friend is there for work through 2013, so I figured why the hell not and we are super excited for the whirlwind weekend trip I have planned. I think this is just what I needed to start turning my moods around. I was really excited about the apartment, but then it started to become a symbol of the end of my cohabitation with Scott and that was really getting me down. For the record, we’re still best friends, still love each other tons, and want the best for each. It’s just not the right time for us right now, and it may never be, and I’m starting to become more and more okay with that.
In light of the traveling of 2012 (I’ve already been to NYC, London, Boston, Maine, and soon San Diego, and Glasgow!), I made a little list of places to try to visit next over the years. It’s a rough draft.
I know I could sit at home, do nothing, and pay all my bills off sooner than later (car payment is done in 6 months!!), but honestly, I am completely and utterly grateful that I can pay what I need to, even a little extra, and still have the chance to go do things. I’m 29 years old and I don’t want to look back and think, “man, if I had just taken those trips then it would have been amazing.” Plus, student loans take forever to pay off anyway, what’s a couple more months in return for experiences that could change my life forever?
For the last 24 hours I’ve felt normal happy, and not fake happy, and I am SO relieved to feel like this even if it doesn’t last through the weekend, I at least know there’s a shift coming. And with that, I’ll leave you with the two strangest fortune cookie message I got in the last 2 months:
Have a good weekend, all! xoxo
