I finally have about 2.3 seconds of breathing room (not really, I still have so much work to do). I thought I did a pretty good job of not waiting until the last minute to complete my summer assignments, but alas, that was not to be. But I’m taking a break from Topics reading, EE research, and Physics to compile a miscellaneous post of my recent adventures.
I gave up my one and only chance this summer to go to the beach!! My mom left yesterday morning and came back today, but I didn’t go with her because I had so much work to do. I am so mad about that. I don’t think I’ve ever had a summer without the beach. Not that I go a lot, but I manage to make it out there at least one time every year. Not this year! Grrrr.
My friends and I had a fancy tea party last week! We dressed up in sundresses, ate macarons and tea cakes and cucumber sandwiches and drank tea. For a few hours, we were electronics-free. Bliss.
Below is my trademark “I am not really sure what facial expression to make right now because I just finished a really hard workout and on the one hand, I’m so happy it’s over, but on the other hand, I am in a ton of pain” face.
We did the same 5×1 mile workout as a couple weeks ago, and I was expecting a shitty workout, but it turned out to be not as bad as last time!! I took off time on almost every single repeat: two weeks ago was 6:16, 6:25, 6:22, 6:22, 6:22, while this week was 6:22, 6:16, 6:21, 6:17, 6:09!! And it felt better. 😀
Last but not least, my to-do list. I have to get all of this done before Tuesday. It might not look like much, but I have to do all of my extended essay research. (The suggested time is 40 hours.) Please murder me. What is a social life?
There are two days of summer left. Too bad I feel as though I’ve already been in school for weeks! Between practice, freshman orientation, mentor training, and first day prep for freshmen, I spent over eight hours there on Thursday. Not counting driving my freshman brother to marching band. He only talks to me when he wants a ride… I spent three hours alone curling ribbon around lollipops tied to freshman survival guides. These freshmen are ridiculously spoiled. I have a callus on my thumb!!
Long run Sunday tomorrow morning! #carbs
