Ok, Ok…. you guys can stop laughing now. For those who read my blog relatively regularly, you by now realize that the life of this grad student consists of “late nights“– meaning bed time at 10:00– and “social settings”– which means dinner with my mom and dad.
So ya… Imma PARTY ANIMAL.
But actually, Thursday night I was relatively social! (gasp!)
I just had a pretty bad exam that I got out of at about 7pm, and while I was going to go home and wallow in my self-pity and watch as many episodes of Castle on TNT as I could… I instead high-tailed it to an “Trivia Around The World” at The Tap!! So yes, this was a function put on by a school organiation so it was full of nerds like me… but during my time here I have learned not to underestimate how nerds party— And that includes The Dean of my school, School of Public and Environmental Affairs, which is the #1 non-profit program in the country, #1 Dual Public Affairs/Environmental Science program in the country, and #2 Public Affairs program in the country. So ya, being the Dean of this is a pretty big deal.
So ya, no big deal, The Dean bought rounds for me and some friends the whole night!! And though I am NOT a big drinker… when the Dean buys you a drink… well, you know, Social Etiquette guys–You drink it.
Some things on my to-do list:
- Buy boots. I had to go out in Sperry’s and Smartwool Socks….actually not my first time…
- Buy pants. Will not go into this… But lets say I had a slight freak out when I tried on all my pants that 3 weeks ago fit. And now are all wayyy to small. Guess the “weight-gain” plan is working huh? ((I am staying positive and remember that I am working on getting my period))
- Clean my apartment. Um… ya. My hair is everywhere. Seriosly, how do I shed so much yet still have plenty on my head?!? One of life’s mysteries…
- Sign up for the Hot Chocolate 15k in Chicago for Nov. 3!! Gosh, no better feeling than signing up for a race! (Let me know if you want to run it with me!!)
I have not been running too much lately… legs are definitely feeling it from the Half last weekend!
Hopefully my legs start to feel better and I can get back into it…. Richmond Marathon in 4 weeks!!
Have a Great Friday!!
What are your weekend plans?
Do you guys have your Winter Gear yet???
