I came to win!

So frustrating.

I am so sick of losing things. The latest item to disappear was the necklace my brother gave me last Christmas, which I took off at the gym on Monday night and haven't seen since. I probably put it in my bag and then dropped it somewhere on the ... Read more

Walking is a privilege

It has been pretty chilly these past few days, but I have still been walking to and from work (and gym, grocery store, etc.). Monday morning was really hands didn't really warm up until after lunch. Since then, I have been wearing mi... Read more

Every day it's something new...

Monday, January 05, 2015      0 comments

I feel like every day I find new things, of varying degrees of plausibility, to absolutely lose my mind over. It is so exhausting. Yes, I am trying to change my mental habits...I just wanted to admit it.... Read more

A message to my feet

Saturday, January 03, 2015      5 comments

Dear Feet: I know that I have said a lot of uncomplimentary things about you, like "why can't I have cute dainty little feet?" or "my toes are shaped so weird." I would like to apologize for those unkind words and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for... Read more

Came across something I wrote last spring

Friday, January 02, 2015      0 comments

I haven't kept "a journal" in years but from time to time I do write, typically just to get intrusive thoughts out of my head. I wrote this last spring when I was preparing for the interview that landed me my current job, apparently shortly afte... Read more

Started my new year off right

Thursday, January 01, 2015      3 comments

by running a new route around town and not getting lost, even a little! (I sketched most of it out using mapmyrun and google street view, but there were a couple bridges I wasn't sure were pedestrian-accessible until I got there). Unfortunately,... Read more

Not this time

Friday, October 03, 2014      0 comments

Lots of work drama this week but I refuse to let it make me feel anxious or guilty even for tonight. I have worked so hard to come this far and there is no reason that anyone, even my adviser, can take that from me. And it is not going to poiso... Read more

So much bitching, sorry

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      2 comments

Sometimes, for no reason at all, I hate myself. I start out hating specific things about my current situation, then try to get myself out of the funk by reminding myself that very soon this will all be behind me. Then I remember that no matter w... Read more

What I love about trying new exercises

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      5 comments

...when I feel it 24-36 hours later, and I'm like, "Oh hello muscles, I'm sorry I didn't notice you there before!" I mean I did but it is one thing to know that there are various muscles in the back and another to be able to experience that a s... Read more
