Thursday = almost end of the week

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — marathonmaiden @ 21:58

So I’m going to put up a sorry excuse for a post. BUT

A) It’s a rest day today.  A little disappointing because I know I run faster the day after a speed session like yesterday’s.

B) I’ve been swamped with work and meetings all morning and afternoon

C) I’m getting ready to go out on Thirsty Thursday again and make some bad life decisions

I do have an exam tmrw morning which keeps making me waffle back and forth between going out and staying in and getting some sleep.  I already know that I’m still going to get up early and run before the exam and only having 3-4 hours of sleep? It’ll be interesting to say the least.

I think it’ll wake me up and keep me from being groggy, like I would be if I rolled out of bed and went to class.  Plus sleep is always the most important in the days leading up to the big event, right? The exam is in Spanish so I’m not terribly worried because I know the material really well. But I am worried about making these Thursday nights out a trend haha.

But if I get to see Hot-Spanish-TA tonight it will be well worth it. Send me courage vibes to dance/talk! 😉

And, so as to not create withdrawal, here is the next installment of the Facts of Life (and oh man I nearly just peed myself reading today’s!)

41. There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

42. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

43. “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this ever.

44. I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There’s so much pressure. ‘I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren’t watching this. It’s only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?’

45. While watching the Olympics, I find myself cheering equally for China and USA. No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that when Chinese athletes don’t win, they are executed.


  1. OMG number 41 made me laugh my ass off! I feel that way every time I lean too far back in a chair and almost fall. Too funny. Have fun tonight if you do decide to go out. Hey you only live once!

  3. So, it’s Friday morning. Did you talk to him? I’m REALLY, REALLY hoping you did. This romance story needs a good turn. LOL.
