It’s Make It Work Time

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — marathonmaiden @ 16:37

For real yo.  I put off quite a bit of work this weekend in favor of watching my Spanish show (which I just finished the second season — I started it Thursday!) and chilling with my friends.  But I’ve been quite productive too. I banged out not one but TWO French papers, generated a bunch of GeoPhysics data, did my busy B.S. work for Spanish and flushed out a couple of slides for my independent research presentation.  Just need to get cracking on my research paper proposal (which won’t be a big deal) for my GeoPhysics class and maybe spruce up my powerpoint a bit more.  Holler to productivity!

In addition to all that I got a SPLENDID run in as well.  This week has just been my week.  I only was planning on 6 or so miles just to get me out in the amazing spring-like weather (mid to upper 60s, sunny, eeeek!) but I was running so fast — which I’m happy to be saying a lot lately — that I couldn’t stop myself from tacking on an extra 2.6 miles to hit 8.6 on the day.

This means that I’m 97.8% sure I hit 60 miles for the week.  So much for trying to cut back?! Oh well my body is feeling great and nothing is hurting.  Definitely not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Everything just felt so good though and I know I’ve been, like, gushing about my running but something this week just clicked between my legs and my mind and my heart.  I really think it has to do with my mind being in a much happier and less anxiety ridden place in the past few weeks.  This translates to effortless running and a feeling of floating through the air.  If I could bottle this up and sell it I’d be a freaking kajillionaire.  For realz.

As I don’t have anything interes Oh yes I almost forgot: Hot-Spanish-TA update haha.  (I should change the title of this blog to Spanish-TA-Stalking-Maiden no?) Well on Thursday last week all the TAs were having a sangria party and it was mentioned to me at the spanish table thing I went to on Wednesday and an invitation was sort-of extended.  I’m wicked awkward so I’m not really sure.  In any case that was his FB status Thursday and I, in jest, commented that “since it was mentioned to me I should be extended an invitation”.  Definitely not expecting to go or anything.  Well, Friday night I got a message back saying that “Oh no, just got your message this [Friday] morning.  Next time!”.  Soooooooooo we’ll see.  I’ve heard rumors too that he’s not into women but I’m not sure how much credit I’m going to give it.

And I only have one Bash photo to show you as my friends are lazy with putting theirs up and I had to scour through ppl whom I don’t know at all to find this one (I’m on the far right in the light purple dress). Enjoy!




  1. Ha! It’s so great that you are running free. Nothing better than a clear mind when tackling the miles.

  3. Okay. You mean to tell me that Hot TA might like his own kind?????!!!???? No way. He’s into you; he’s just shy. Let’s keep that going for awhile, okay? Awesome running and VERY cute dress in the pic.

  5. Well, no matter which way he swings it sounds like he would have been into you coming to the party. That’s cool, right? Way to go on the productivity and running side of things.
