That is how long it has been since I have posted. Whoops. #sorryiamnotsorry. I have been extremely busy these past few weeks, but guess what…I’m done. My undergraduate college career is over and done with. Finals are finished, grades are posted and the good news is I passed. Not only did I pass, but I had my best semester of college ever. When I first came to college everyone said that my best semester would be first semester freshman year, turns out that semester was almost my worst. So now that I have brought my QPA up a little bit I am feeling a little better about life. It is not exactly what I would have hoped for, but hey I didn’t really think my life would be like this if you had asked me four years ago.
While finals finished up, I finished my last office hours as an RA. I also finished my last shift as a desk assistant (four years strong) and said goodbye to all my residents. Friday night after we were dismissed from closing I headed to the beach. It is a tradition that during senior week everyone rents houses at Dewey Beach in Delaware. So we headed there for a couple of days. The weather wasn’t fantastic, but I didn’t mind. I was in more of a relaxation mode then need to be on the beach all day everyday. It was SO nice to just relax and not have to worry about school or what was due when I returned. (That will start next week, when I start my summer classes ). I didn’t take many pictures from the beach, but you can take my word that fun was had by all.
I got back to campus yesterday afternoon and spent the day catching up on tv shows (helllllo greys and revenge…holy smokes!) and starting to pack my room. It is unbelievable to think graduation is in a short 3 days. So much to do in the next couple of days. My family arrives tomorrow and I cannot wait to see everyone. It seems strange to think that I won’t be going home with them. I will be staying here, starting my new life (SAY WHATTTT). Before Saturday we have a senior gala (tonight), alumni bbq, and baccalaureate. I am also going to see an apartment tonight, I hope this one’s a winner!!! Hopefully after graduation I will have an update before my classes start and my life gets a little insane again.
I cannot get over the fact that today is the first day of May. In 18 days I will be walking across the stage graduating college. I feel like this just snuck up on me out of no where. In honor of today before the first day of May, here is a funny meme I have been spotting all over the web.
Looks like it is time to get my shiznat together.
ps I ran this morning…the run sucked. It was supposed to be 7.5 miles. Turns out when you slack, it isn’t so easy to come back. Let’s just say that mileage was not had and it was more of a walk than run. Adjusting this training plan and I plan to run Friday and Saturday. I shall update on the running then!
..where I would be today, I would not have said where I actually am today.
I never would have thought I would be in an honor society (or graduating with honors)
I never would have thought I would be an RA
I never would have thought I would have studied abroad and felt that three months was too short
I never would have thought I would be living in Baltimore for the next couple of years (or longer, who really knows)
I never would have thought I would have made the friends I have (I think I found some good ones )
I never would have thought I would be running a 1/2 marathon in a little over a month (honestly still shocked about this one)
I never would have thought I would go on a cruise for spring break senior year
I never would have thought I would miss home!
I everyone, sorry I have been MIA. I am trying to get my (excuse my language) shit together. It is taking longer than expected, but I should be back with an update soon!!
Well another iffy week, but I managed to finish it. Like I said in some earlier posts this week I took a couple of days off it ice. My knee had been bothering me and I wanted to take time to let it get better. The RA on the other side of my hall had surgery on his ACL and MCL right before spring break and luckily had an ice pack he let me borrow!!
So after three days of icing and resting I ran again on Wednesday. It wasn’t pretty and it was slow, but I managed to get in close to four miles in 42 minutes. I took a break on Thursday and had all intentions and even excitement for my run Friday morning. It was only supposed to be an easy 2.5 miles because I had 5 to do on Saturday. I woke up to the pouring rain on Friday morning and obviously a run did not happen. WHY DOES THE WEATHER HATE ME!? I woke up on Saturday not wanting to run, but knowing I had to get a run in or I would be screwed.
5 miles later and I was done. I have never run more than 3.1 miles so I was beyond stoked when I finished this run and felt good. I have been telling myself once I get past a certain number of miles it will get easier. Honestly with my 5 miles I felt like it got easier after 3 miles. Like 3 miles was this huge hill I had to get to the top of and when I did everything would be smooth sailing. Obviously it wasn’t smooth sailing, but it felt easier than the first three miles. My foot started tingling around mile 2.5 and I am not positive why. I need to figure that one out, I am just assuming it is my feet swelling in my shoes. But it was only one foot so who knows (does anyone know?). I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I feel good. I mean I didn’t run it very fast, but I was just proud I did it. This may be me just being an amateur running trying to get in my groove
It is funny to look at the two times and the number of miles and compare. Only about 10 minutes more and a mile more. Rest day on Sunday and back to running on Monday! I am hoping to get some other workouts in during the week to get up my endurance.
