Hello and happy Thursday!
Boy am I glad to be done with school this week. Today was kind of a crazy day.
I woke up early to get started on some homework, but ended up getting distracted by blog reading for too long. (Seriously, why do I have to follow so many awesome blogs? It’s a sickness!)
Eventually, I extracted myself from the computer, made some oatmeal for breakfast, and got dressed. I had my first “custard” oats by stirring in some egg whites in addition to my usual way.
Honestly, breakfast wasn’t that good to me this morning. I guess I wasn’t craving oats? Who knows.
The rest of my day was filled with tiny miracles.
I got to campus around 11:30, and had given myself a little under two hours to finish my chemistry problem set. Big mistake. I quickly realize there is nowayinhell I will get it done in time. Crap.
I open up my email feeling totally hopeless and…::angels singing:: my problem set isn’t due till Friday! WOOT WOOT. Tiny miracle #1.
Except that I work 10 hour days Thursday and Friday in Providence, so there’s really no way for me to get up to Boston in time…Regardless at least I have more than two hours to do it.
Then I walk along in the pretty foliage to my groundwater hydrology lecture and…BAM. Class is cancelled. Now I can make it to office hours for chemistry! And figure out what the heck I’m doing! Tiny miracle #2.
I was able to get the entire problem set done, here and there between lectures all day. Then I hopped in the car to drive home and…NO TRAFFIC.
Tiny huge miracle #3.
I’d say overall, not a day I can complain about
So I know I’m a full week late to this little blog party, but Natalie was sweet enough to nominate me for the Sunshine Award! I was so excited and flattered, I’ve never been nominated for anything like it. It’s great to be finding my groove in the blog world
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Natalie’s blog over at Free Range Human. Try not to go hiking after browsing through her site, seriously. Such beautiful photos and so inspiring!
Let’s get to the Sunshine Award questions…
1. Who is your favorite philosopher?
Oh boy, I have to confess I know nothing about philosophy at this point. I remember reading a little bit here and there as required back in high school, but that was so long ago now! I’m a math nerd, through and through.
2. What is your favorite number?
Lucky number 7, I was born on the 7th.
3. What is your favorite animal?
I love all animals. We have a dog and a cat, and I don’t want to play favorites so I’ll just say both of those
Logan as a puppy OH MY GOD SO CUTE. Now he’s all grown up
4. Facebook and Twitter?
Blah, neither really. I check facebook maybe once a day, but I find I gain nothing from it. It’s good for seeing how that random person in my 7th grade science class is doing in life. But I don’t use it for anything else really. And I don’t have a twitter account. Shocker!
5. What is your favorite time of day?
If I say bedtime, will you think I’m a sad, pathetic old lady? Honestly sometimes there’s nothing I love more than curling up in a big comfy bed with a magazine or a book, knowing that the day is done and tomorrow is a new day.
6. What is your favorite vacation?
I love all vacations, I try not to be too picky about them haha. In an ideal world, I’d love somewhere with a little bit of everything, some mountains, some beaches, some nightlife, great restaurants. I’m indecisive! I love northern New England though…
7. What is your favorite physical activity?
Depends on the season. In the summer I love swimming (or lounging around in a tube, you know) and in the winter I love skiing! Hoping to make it more than once this year
8. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
Hmm I dunno. I’m actually thirsty right now and all I can think about is water. But I can do better than that. I’ll go with Lipton raspberry iced tea. I used to get it all the time during my freshman year of college, so it holds some fond memories. Plus it’s delicious.
9. What is your favorite flower?
I like daffodils and sunflowers because they’re bright and happy!
10. What is your passion?
Womp womp. I don’t know. Fail. I’m my father’s daughter (read: he still doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life).
And on that happy note let’s get to my nominations! I know I was really late to this blog party and most everyone has been nominated already, but I’ll give a shoutout to some of my favorite bloggers anyway
1. Alex at The Run Within
2. Chelsie at Balance Not Scale
3. Carrie at Fitness & Frozen Grapes
4. Jorie at The Midwest Maven
5. Rebecca at Blueberry Smiles
6. Jess at Jessie Loves to Run
7. Amanda at Running with Spoons
And with that, I’m off to bed! My favorite time of day! Haha, so sad.
What’s your favorite time of day? What’s your passion? Am I the only one who hasn’t really found one yet? :-/
