I think it’s time for some honesty this Friday, don’t you? My Communication Research professor stressed yesterday that honesty is one of the single most important aspects of a healthy life and relationship, (now you know why we only got through 1 Powerpoint slide) so I’m going to take her advice this morning.
Honestly…I have really enjoyed not feeling like I need to be glued to my computer constantly checking up on blogs, Twitter, and Instagram. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE blog reading and knowing what you all were up to, but it started to become too much for me. I felt like I was consumed with what everyone else was doing – so much so that I wasn’t always doing what was best for me. It’s really helped for me to step back and realize that. That all being said, this in no way means that I’m going to stop blogging. It just means that I’m going to be spending more time living my life, while still writing/blogging on the side.
Honestly…I think the blog world is a little crazy sometimes. Alluding to what I was just talking about – I think many bloggers are too busy focusing on what will interest their readers or doing what other bloggers are doing and simply disregarding things they can be doing just to enjoy life. I realized I missed out on a lot of opportunities because I was too busy behind my computer, taking pictures of my food, etc. Blogging is supposed to be fun, people!
Honestly…I really love DailyMile. Almost more than I love Facebook or Twitter. Ok, I’m lying. Twitter actually trumps all in terms of social media, but DailyMile is like Twitter for runners, cyclers, and just exercisers in general. I started using it right at a time when hardcore motivation was needed, and it’s been a total lifesaver.
Honestly…being sick is the worst. Especially when you really don’t get much down time. I guess that’s what I get for being involved. Cough syrup, water, and Cepacol cough drops have been my best friends as of late.
Honestly…I am SO excited for all of my classes this semester. Now that I’ve been to every one of them at least once, I can tell it’s going to actually be an enjoyable semester filled with classes that will only help me figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.
Honestly…I need more than one cup of coffee to get me through these long days. You should have known that, though.
Well, this post started out pretty serious and got progressively less serious. I like it that way. In case you’re wondering, half marathon training is going swimmingly – I’m still running, yoga-ing, and doing some core workouts here and there. I’ll have full updates very soon…AKA once I have a free minute to sit and relax. Back to Spanish homework…
P.S. Remember these beauties I made for my big and grandbig in the sorority this past summer? I made one for my little, too, and can’t wait to give it to her!
P.S.S. I’m sorry I haven’t been responding to comments. My site preferences are being a bit wonky and decided not to e-mail me when I get comments. #annoying
