Things have been a little intense lately, and a little hectic, but here’s a glimpse into my life lately.
Drinking: Water. I think I’ve been slacking on drinking enough water recently. I am almost always drinking tea, which I justify as being basically water, but I really do need to drink more plain water. I’ve decided I’m going to workout every morning from now until I go back to school, and then, once at school, I want to work out a schedule to continue getting fit. But, if I workout everyday I need to be more hydrated.
Weather: The weather is way too hot for my taste. I’ve been feeling faint a lot more frequently (I’m hypoglycemic), and I think the main reason is it’s been so hot, plus I’m not drinking enough water. Maybe I’ll have to go swimming after I finish writing this post…
Reading: After reading Just One Day, I really wanted to read Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare because it affects the novel so much. I also know that She’s The Man is based on this play also, so I figured it would be a good Shakespeare to read. I want to read all of his plays before I die (maybe I should add that to my Bucket List), and so I’ve been slowly making my way through all the plays in the last few years.
Thinking About: With school coming up in a few weeks, I’m thinking about all the things that school entails. For the first few weeks that I’m at school, I’m going to be working as a welcome leader for incoming freshman, and then classes will begin come September. I’ve been thinking about school a lot because I’m trying to start packing my stuff, figuring out what I want to take with me and what I will have my parents ship to me later. I’m really looking forward to going back to school and seeing my friends, and having things to do all the time. I’ve been thinking about playing volleyball this year, but I’m still not 100% sure that I want to. I guess only time will tell.
Excited About: My birthday is on Thursday, and I’m getting more excited for it everyday! I’m planning to do sushi and a Romantic Comedy movie night with two of my friends, then a family dinner, then a lunch at my favorite restaurant with some of my other friends. I feel like this summer has been a little lame just because a lot of things have been going on, and I haven’t done as many things as I originally wanted to, so I’m excited to catch up with my friends and celebrate my birthday. I’m also excited to return to my friends at Saint Mary’s because it’s been far too long since I’ve seen them (especially my roommate and quasi-twin, Holly). Oh, and I’m excited for The Bachelorette finale, obviously.
Missing: The ability to eat ice cream. Being allergic to every good food is not really my thing. Besides the fact that I’ve lost a lot a weight, and that there are non-dairy ice creams, I miss just plain old dairy ice cream. Although, I’m going to be cooking more for myself this year, so I picked up some Gluten Free & Dairy Free cookbooks today. I’m really excited to try some of the recipes, and figure out which I like, and which I don’t.
Addicted to: Lately I’ve had so much on my mind, and I’m trying to figure out how I feel about some things, what I want my life to look like in the next few months, and who I want to be, so I’ve been journaling like crazy. I’ve also been re-reading old journal entries to try to understand why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling right now. It’s interesting how things change over time, and I like looking back, watching my life unfold, because it usually helps me figure out how I’ve gotten to now, and why things are the way they are. So, here’s to journaling it out!
How’s life for you lately?
