Thank you for your love and support on Friday’s post. ♥
Confession #1: My gynecology appointment on Friday was good, terrifying, confusing and disheartening all at the same time. I’m going back this Friday, and I’ll leave it at that.
Confession #2: I went to a formal workout for the first time in a long time, and it was FUN.
A new fitness group on campus hosted an outdoor workout in the middle of campus, so I decided to stop by and join them [10 minutes late]. It wasn’t anything crazy; it was just wonderful to be active outdoors with fellow Terriers.
Confession #3: I waited in line for 1.5 hours to see a comedian I hadn’t even heard of before.
Are any of you fans of the show Parks and Recreation? The comedian we watched was Retta from the show. We definitely had some good laughs!
Confession #4: I don’t want to say that the weather has been perfect these past two weeks because I don’t want to jinx it. But here I am saying it anyway.
Confession #5: My roommate had her birthday dinner this weekend and I felt like I was at a celebrity’s birthday party. 40 people at a trendy hot pot restaurant for THIS MODEL.
Confession #7: I cooked the vegetables that so many people at the party didn’t want to eat, and I took them home as leftovers. Then I ate them cold. #dontwastefoodplease
Confession #8: Sandwiches are baaaaaack. 🙂 The no-fail meal option.
Confession #9: I have dessert practically every day here in college. Apparently “sophomore spread” is a thing, (like, my fat is supposed to spread out all over the place? all I can think of with that term is Jabba the Hut), but I think we’ll be okay.
We walk a lot.
Confession #10: I brought my own peanut butter to the Catholic Center pancake brunch on Sunday.
“Alison, you did NOT bring your own peanut butter.”
“But alas, here it is on my pancake.”
Confession #12: I spent $5 for public transportation to see fireworks. ‘Twas worth it because of these beautiful people.
Confession #13: I’m reading more text (that’s not on a blog) than I have in a long time. SO MUCH DENSE READING. SO LITTLE TIME.
Confession #14: I went to the gym for the first time in several months. I felt somewhat lost because a) they moved and added a lot of equipment; b) I hadn’t touched a weight in forever. I’m still not doing anything near what I used to do, but I did use some light kettlebells.
Confession #15: It took me a total of 4 hours to do laundry because apparently, college students like to do laundry on a long weekend. Who would have thought? Not me, evidently.
This weekend was so college, it hurts— studying, dining hall food, and events that require investments I would deem unreasonable outside of a college setting.
I hope you all had a fantastic Labo(u)r Day if you celebrated. Full force ahead!!! (<— me pretending to be enthusiastic about 8AM classes)
So tell me:
What is the most exciting thing you did this weekend?
Do you bring nut butter with you where you know it will be applicable?
Have you ever eaten at a hot pot restaurant?
Please explain what “sophomore spread” is supposed to mean.
