I’m going to start this post with the best news ever.
NO CLASS TOMORROW!!
Thank you Hurricane Sandy. I just read the email a little while ago, and feel SO much better about the lack of studying that got done today. I’ll get to that though, let’s rewind a bit.
I’m finally getting back into the swing of things with regular workouts! I think I’ve kicked this cold for good, and learned my lesson. Sleep is important! I can’t function without enough.
I got home from work around 6:30, and wanted to go for a quick 3.5 mile run. Andrea sensed my uneasiness at running alone in the dark, so her and Logan came with me! I don’t know why we don’t do this more often, it’s so much more fun to run with someone you can chat with.
Everyone we ran by loved Logan, how could you not?
After our run, we went shopping for our Halloween costumes. True to form, I’m always piecing together a costume at the last minute. I found enough to make my costume work, then went home, showered, and drove to Matt’s. He lives closer to Boston and I had to be up early for school, so it worked. We played more Donkey Kong, obviously.
Early morning wakeup call on my Saturday. Definitely not my favorite thing. But the field lab I needed to go to was 10% of my grade, so I couldn’t exactly skip it. Plus, it was a beautiful day so ultimately I was happy to be outside enjoying it.
I got home from class at about 1:30, relaxed for a bit, then attempted to get started on some homework.
Took an hour nap instead, woops. I stayed up too late playing Donkey Kong, seriously I’m 12 years-old again and totally addicted to that game! When I woke up, I decided to head to the gym for a quick workout. It was an elliptical kind of day.
Yay for free food!
When I got home I did the phase 2 strength 5 workout from Body Revolution. Damn, it was hard. That’s a good thing though right? If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you?
After working up a good sweat I showered, made a yummy green smoothie, and attempted my homework again.
Successful this time! Finished my Hydrology problem set that was due Monday. Then it was time to get ready for the Halloween party!
So I sort of majorly failed and didn’t take any pictures of me in costume or at the party at all. Sometimes I just don’t want to be that girl taking pictures of every single thing. I’d rather live in the moment and have a great time.
Anyway, if you’re curious I was Regina George, and it was a pretty big hit. Anyone who knew Mean Girls guessed it. I wore a blonde wig, with a side braid. Sunglasses, a skirt, tank top, and cardigan with pink high heels. And I cut the shirt in the boob region just like in the movie. Fun stuff.
The party was at Matt’s house, and it was sooo much fun. I love Halloween, and all of his friends got really into their costumes! There honestly wasn’t one “lame” costume at all, people went all out. It was a good time.
I woke up pretty late Sunday morning (we were up until 4am Saturday night? Who am I?) and hopped in the car to drive home. I stopped at Dunks for some much needed water.
Did you guys know Dunks does this? Just ask for a cup with water, and it’s free! No need to waste $2 on the bottled version.
I was a little hungover so the scene at my apartment looked like this for a couple hours.
Water, candy, slippers, blanket, and my DVR. It happens.
Eventually, I got myself together and went grocery shopping. Then I got to work in the kitchen!
Finally satisfied that baking urge. I’ll share the recipe later this week!
At around 10 I decided to finally start studying for a midterm I have this week until…
That amazing news that I have no class tomorrow! Which means the midterm was pushed back a week! I’m super excited about this but also a little nervous, because this weekend is Matt’s sister’s wedding. I’ll be busy spending time with him and his family and won’t have much time for studying. He actually got a hotel for the entire weekend which I’m really excited about. I don’t like to blog too much about my love life, but I’ll just say that I really like this guy. A lot.
Ok on that note, it’s time for bed! I’m so excited about my day off tomorrow, so I’m not even thinking about the fact that we’re about to get a hurricane. Is Sandy making an appearance for any of you? How was your weekend?
