Hello, hello! My blogging has been pretty sporadic lately. Life got in the way…what can you do? I’ve been spending a whole lot less time in front of the computer and more enjoying life. I can’t say I regret it at all.
This past weekend was incredibly busy. I was at the sorority house by at least 8 AM every morning to prepare for the day’s recruitment activities. Activities involved talking to LOTS of potential new members…resulting in a pretty nasty sore throat. Long story short, I was running on very little sleep all weekend and it doesn’t look like that will change this weekend as recruitment continues! I love it, though. Some photos from the weekend….
I can’t wait for this weekend to continue. By Sunday, we’ll have a new pledge class!
Since classes didn’t start until yesterday, I went on a long run (10 miles) on Monday morning. It was the best run I’ve had in a while. I didn’t run for speed…which is probably a good thing since my running trail was so icy. The weather was beautiful, and I discovered a new part of the trail since I went a bit further this time. Gotta love a good run! After my run, I picked up some coffee.
Have I mentioned how much I love getting recognized by my favorite companies on social media sites? It’s awesome – and a dream job of mine. Speaking of social media, I’ve been loving DailyMile lately. It’s great for inspiration and holding myself accountable as I train. As if I need motivation to run. Psh. All I need to think about is that awesome feeling I get after finishing a run.
Yesterday was my first day of classes, and I have to say, I’m pretty excited for this semester. I’m taking classes more geared toward my major and I have buddies in all my classes (which could end up being bad….). On my schedule for this semester: Media Writing, Visual Media, Introduction to Communication Research, Hispanic Literature and Culture, Creative Writing Fiction, and a survey course at the local elementary school teaching grades PK-6 how to read.
I know this isn’t a typical WIAW post, but to be honest, I’m getting a little bored of taking pictures of everything I eat. I will share my mom’s latest creations, though. She’s pretty proud that her meal ended up looking almost exactly like the recipe picture.
Impressive, huh? I’m off to another morning/afternoon of classes! I promise I’ll be getting back to a normal schedule soon…I love blogging too much to be away for so long!
