5k: ran all da way

Remember how I said I was going to do a 5k except I wasn't sure I could actually do it?

It's over people, and I ran the whole thing! I ran with Rose, and we totally killed it. We finished in 29:30.

Oh, hi

Spent the better part of the day looking for bee jewelry...


My favorite at the moment, but I like that the next one has an XXS option because I have really small wrists and I can't stand bracelets that slide down my arm.

My family has been calling me "bee" since I was born because my dad said I looked like a bundle bee after the nurses wrapped me up. I saw a bee bracelet on Instagram today and I decided I cannot live without a bee bracelet. 

Of course I can't make a decision because I like to buy things, but I don't like to spend money. I'm going to sleep on it and decide tomorrow. 

Also, do you like how I failed to mention that I haven't blogged in a month? I'm in a writing rut.

Bee good!

My brother is teaching me how to not be such an LMOC anymore.

LMOC: little man on campus. Aka not cool. (Pronounced like Elle-mock)

First step is to stop tweeting about being an LMOC.

Introverts Unite

"Learn to appreciate what quiet can be for people."

"Yes, someone can need quiet time by themselves to recharge from a day's activities, but that by no means implies a deeper level of anxiety or disdain for those around them."

-How to Love an Introvert from Thought Catalog

Yours truly,
Introvert and lover of quiet

Running is fun?

Training for a 5K...again. 

My roommate is planning one for her capstone class and I really want to be able to run it. I'm doing the couch to 5K program and it's more manageable than I thought. 

 I did have a really hard time setting a pace and breathing at first. I was trying to do that thing where you take a breath for every three steps, but I thought my heart was going to explode so now I don't even think about breathing and have slowed down so much that an onlooker may confuse it for fast walking. 

The worst part of working out for me is walking to the gym. I was able to run outside the past two Sundays and that was great, but our neighborhood is still really snowy and that sounds like absolutely no fun. And neither does walking to the gym and changing out of rain boots and being in public. 

We drove yesterday and I was totally dreading the intervals, but I felt really good after and was able to justify my late night eating. 

Now that I have put this on my blog, I really have to do it because that would be embarrassing if I didn't since I just told the internet. 

I think if I actually do this 5K, I am going to buy myself this sweatshirt: 

Although, I'd prefer to get this one if they ever get it back in stock: 

I would normally never ever spend that much on a sweatshirt, but if I can complete a 5K I will get it for myself because that is something I would normally never ever do and it would be a huge accomplishment for me. I've also wanted this sweatshirt for forever. 

Maybe I should put a dollar in my "Happy Camper" sweatshirt fund every time I run? Then I would have...$18. 

Ok I'm still on my couch and feeling like the worst person ever because this 101-year-old just ran his last marathon.

The Newsroom

I just finished season one of HBO’s The Newsroom yesterday on our snow day. You guys, it’s the best show ever. I’m having withdrawals. Luckily, I’m reading All The President’s Men for one of my classes, so I can get my fix of kick-ass journalists for a few more days.

I am really very cool.

I thought this scene was hilarious and I’ve been watching it over and over again wishing I could be that honest and poignant.

I actually do like Sex and the City and realize it's just a TV show, but I've totally questioned the reality of the characters and their lifestyles. I would never, ever spend what they spend on a pair of shoes. (And half of the time I don't even think they are that great!) Like what typical woman in New York could afford to?

One idea from the show I can get behind is having fancy brunch once a week. I'd rather save my money for brunch. 

Food>shoes. And I love shoes. 

Warning: this video contains the "F" word, but I couldn't find a clip that didn't have it. If you skip to :11, you should miss it.
