Life Update

Hello dear friends, it is 12:48 am here where I live and I’m sleepless (not in Seattle). My body is on some wacked up sleeping schedule where I sleep until noon which is fab, however I’m up until the wee hours of the morning which is far less than great. So… what better thing to do at this time than blog?

A little update on Insanity: I completed week 1 of insanity however I am doing week one over (I’m on day 5 already) because I wanted to see if I could push myself more and take fewer breaks which as a matter of fact, I can. That’s really it. I even did the fit test again and my results already skyrocketed which I’m beyond excited about.

An update on my weight: I weighed myself on Saturday June 20th and weighed 185 pounds which is 8 pounds lighter than the last time I weighed myself (the end of May I think??) so also very proud of myself too.

College update: I will be visiting my college in Southern California in less than a month due to the fact that my registration and orientation date is July 20th. My dad and I fly out on the 19th in the morning, get oriented on the 20th, and leave the night of the 21st. Which is super fun I just hope to not get sunburnt while I’m out there. I am going into international business with a minor in spanish and biology focusing on zoology. My goal in life is to travel and work with animals or travel and own a lot of animals: preferably both. So after orientation I’ll probably share my class load on here. I am moving cross-country so we will be flying but PRAISE Bed Bath and Beyond for being phenomenal and letting me order things online and shipping right to their location closest to my University. Such a life saver.

I’m very excited for college however it hasn’t hit me that I’m going so far away and that everything will be different once August 19th hits. But I hope I’m ready for this change and I look forward to this new chapter in my life.

April Challenges Day 10

Well, yesterday, i said I’d talk about my bad week thus far. But, before I do, I want to explain a few interesting things my dad was telling me

  1. Chocolate milk is the best thing to drink after a workout because it has all the essential vitamins and minerals and doesn’t have excess sodium like Gatorade.
  2. this  website   has really good tricep workouts (#1 especially) and they are something i really need to focus on… No, my dad did not show me the website, but someone on the today show was doing those exercises and he said they were beneficial or something…

30 Days of Weight Loss Challenge Day 10: What was the hardest thing you gave up during this “weight loss?”

Ummmmmm, well I technically haven’t given up food. i mean i try to not eat that unhealthily but i let myself indulge. I don’t really enjoy fast food, it makes me feel gross. I mean i gave up eating however the hell I wanted. I look at portions, so I control how much goes into my mouth.

Well, my shitty week.

Monday, well the day sucked. My favorite teacher and yearbook advisor said she isn’t going to advise yearbook next year, and that a new teacher will. She’s nice and all but i really want my old yearbook advisor back. I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone until the current EIC was told, so I moped around the rest of the day and only my parents, and two close friends knew. Anyway, then in macro, my teach made sense, messed up on what at first made sense, and then proceeded to not make sense for the rest of the period. So, I went home and cried, It was a Monday and all that happened. Then, i thought that something on TV would make me feel better. I turned on and the news is on… bombing in Boston. Really? Two friends of mine were at the marathon at the finish line. They weren’t hurt, thank god. Their uncle was running. Their uncle had finished the run about 10 minutes before the bombing, They got in their car, and were driving back to the hotel , and within five minutes got a call saying what had happened. I’m overjoyed that they’re okay. And then we also had another bomb threat. Really? So, that was Monday for you all.

Tuesday.. the day didn’t really improve. My friend was back from Boston, I made myself coffee. That’s about it. I was also told that I had a nice face, which I mentioned yesterday. My teacher continued to confuse me and the girl I sit next to.

Wednesday. Today, my teacher apologized to the girl I sit next to and I personally for screwing us up. apparently the past two days we had been angry-looking and giving him death glares, so he felt bad. Today was alright. I am running for president of my junior board, wish me luck. I had a review for micro until four, then my macro teacher, the girl I sit next to in macro, and another girl stayed and reviewed for the test we have tomorrow. I finally understand it and I can’t wait to get an A on this test! We were there until 5 and if that’s what it takes for me to understand things, then that’s what it takes. After that, I walked, hoodless. to the house I dogsit for to get paid and give their key back. it was pouring and gross, and cold. It looked like there was going to be a tornado, but here hasn’t been one so far. I got paid $15.

November 26th

Wow, I am proud. I have made like 4 posts in two days. it’s great. So, well, where do I begin? Well,let’s go on an adventure to 6 o’clock this morning…

So, I woke up at 6, I knew it would be a pretty good day, my hair looked good, I was happy, and for being a Monday, it didn’t seem like it would suck.

I had toast with nutella for breakfast, I haven’t had toast in a while so I decided to make my toaster work.  I then went to school.

In english, we were assigned a project which you can read/help me with here and yeah.

In spanish we have to memorize this poem for our final in three weeks. flkxbsKn… finals, three weeks, dreading them..

Anyway this is the poem…
La araña
Por Enrique Anderson Imbert
Sentía algo en mi mano, miré y era una araña.
Fui a decirle:

-¿qué haces aquí?
Pero la araña se me adelantó y me dijo:

-¿qué haces aquí?
Entonces fui a decirle: “No quisiera molestarte, pero este es mi mundo, y debes irte”

.
Otra vez la araña se me adelantó y dijo:
-No quisiera molestarte, pero este es mi mundo y debes irte.

Comprendí que así era imposible dialogar. Le dejé la mano y me fui.

 

That’s the poem… it’s in spanish obviously, hence spanish class, and I have three weeks to memorize it. Joy.

anyway, after Spanish, in yearbook, the editors and I were told that on Thursday, we would be staying at school until 9 at night! to finishing editing all the spreads…. Joy… Joy…. shoot me now…

In geometry, nothing really happened. the boy I like, well, he told me that for english he is doing women’s rights because “It;s disgusting how it’s 2012 and women don’t have the same rights as men.” I wanted to hug him, this is so true.

After that glorious moment, I went to lunch. For lunch I had an apple, applesauce, a granola bar, and some yogurt…. slDFbhjlkfsb OH! Also, why today was a good day was because my friend made me scones. I was in heaven. I told her about my stomach issues last week and she said that she would make me scones and she did. it was fantastic. 🙂 So I had 2

Gym was okay.We worked out and I had to do a 5 minute jog and it wasn’t too bad, so I was up for basketball.

During micro, we were told that another ‘Super Review’ would be held next Tuesday from 7-9. Woot. I’m pumped, ont really.

And finally, to end my day on a low note, a C+ on my Chem test. It was okay. I was disappointed but whatever. And now we are learning about ions and we have a quiz on Thursday with like a bazillion of them…. Flash cards here I come…

After school, I suited up, taped my knee, and was ready to go. About five minutes into practice, my stomach was killing me, so I didn’t participate in practice anymore… I went all out though for those 5 minutes… It was great. yeah, so no playing in the game tomorrow. MOM!! Make me a doctor’s appointment. God..

Anyway, so after I came home and had dinner. We had mashed potatoes and chicken. Woot.

And now, here I am doing ‘homework’ and blogging. What a good day.

I had a total of 1482 calories.
