Five Reasons to Blog Today

I hate feeling like I have to catch up on here. I hate feeling like blogging is work. My brain is running on two cylinders right now due to sleep deprivation.

So, in order to keep this short and sweet, here is my top five interesting things as of late (giving me a reason to blog today):

5) I’m satisfied with my lifts and how training is going. Monday yielded 220×5 squat and a lot of accessories. Wednesday yielded 135×3 bench. I miss my benches at the Weight Room. Lovely to go in when there’s no one there.

4) I get to help plan a social justice conference! Last year, there were topics about misogynist memes, body image, racial diversity, and LBGTQ advocacy. We’re currently deciding on keynote speakers. I can’t wait to help out more.

3) I submit my Proud2BeMe piece today. I also ordered NEDA Week Awareness posters to hang at work and on campus. It’ll be great when they come in.

2)

I had to evaluate my yoga strat. My current strategy wasn’t working (putting it off till Saturday at 11). This time, I got it in early. I did an hour long yoga video with my roommate. Then, the next day, I did a Rodney Yee iyengar video. So I missed a week last week, being honest, but I think finding a new strategy for carrying out my goals is more important.

1) I visited friends last weekend in Tulsa. I love my friends and I had a blast. When I’m dying less, I’m going to totally write a Tulsa entry. Tulsa is hip. Tulsa turns their old Barnes and Nobles into fancy-ass grocery stores. Tulsa has arcade cabinet bars. Tulsa has Food Network famous pizza. More to come on that.

Bonus: I love Aldi. The whole system (have to put a deposit down to get a grocery cart, you bag your own groceries, bags cost money, super cheap) is favbuklrhhs  fabulous….sleep deprivation and auto correct do not mix, folks.

I’ll be writing again when I am more alive.

Let’s see if you can squat your way out of this one (part 1): Saturday

Dear me, don’t you hate it in when real life gets in the way of blogging?

I went over to my mom’s house to have fun after my crazy 7 hour-no-break-shift at CFA. We (H and I)  have discussed before why people just lose themselves over the food at CFA because I honestly would only eat it if it is my free post-shift meal.

I think the combination of service, speed of service, and our employees probably make up a lot of it. But our entrees are not cheap and it kills me knowing people spend equal amounts of money on this “quick service” food as they do a nice sit down, traditional meal, even if its Chili’s.

Oh, also, I don’t even need to check to see that we got a blackout bingo wise on Saturday. Trays level with the storage cabinet? Yup. Line out the door? Totally.

Seeing ex-boyfriend?

That wasn’t on there but obviously happened.

L ordered a spicy chicken sandwich with a ranch and BBQ sauce, as usual. He avoided me for awhile until he realized I was the next free associate to take orders and that he was only punishing himself if he didn’t get food just because I was taking orders.

At the end of my shift, mom came to get me and we drove to my old hometown so she could get her hair cut. I ended up taking a nap in my old room. That is one thing I love about my dad’s house–my bed.

My bed there is the best bed in the world. Likewise with the pillows. I have been tempted to take my pillows from home up to the house I currently live in but I realized that having good pillows there was actually motivating me to visit more.

I’ve actually been sleeping properly, which hasn’t happened in a long time. Sleeping at 11:00 and waking up feeling refreshed at not 5 A.M.

Sleeping at my mom’s house, in the cool airconditioning after a miserable 95+ degree day really makes you feel alright.
